About the Author
Kim Lawrence was encouraged by her husband to write when the unsocial hours of nursing didn’t look attractive! He told her she could do anything she set her mind to, so Kim tried her hand at writing. Always a keen Mills & Boon reader, it seemed natural for her to write a romance novel – now she can’t imagine doing anything else. She is a keen gardener and cook and enjoys running on the beach with her Jack Russell. Kim lives in Wales.

The story was fine but it really didn't interest too much. The heroine works at a newspaper but still lives in the family mansion. She runs into the hero in a bad way but her morals and personality (can't forget her lips) make an impression on him. Next, she finds out her family is losing their home and their company is bankrupt. It started a long time ago (mostly because they didn't buckle down on pinching pennies but freely lived luxury, something the heroine does acknowledge they did) but they borrowed money from an old friend but he died. Now, his grandson is calling all money to be repaid but they don't have it. The whole thing stresses the poor sister-in-law so much that she goes into early labor. The heroine goes to the grandson to ask for time and learns it's the hero. The hero refuses at first, even reveals the loan was just his grandfather's scheme to get the house since he knew the father couldn't pay off the debt and turn it into a shopping mall. Then they come to an agreement that she does an internship to help prove they can pay and use her wage to help pay off. This is actually one of the things that I liked about harlequin: the hero doesn't abuse his position for coitus. He has her start working right off the bat and she fumbles a little at first. However, she boosts positivity in the company with her smile and treats and becomes the mascot for a majority of the employees. The hero is respectful to the heroine but her family are under the illusion that she's sleeping with him for them. She assures them that's not the case but they hardly believe her. During this time, the hero falls hard for the heroine but tries to hold back his feelings for the many and usual reasons: he too afraid to love, she's an employee, etc. He finally gives in and admits his attraction to the heroine but she rejects him with the words"...can't sleep with the enemy". That causes him to back off. She gives in later on and they pursue a relationship. Sadly, her parents find out and her father threatens to disown her with the hero overhearing the whole thing like the heroine standing up for him. The hero tells the heroine he wants to end their relationship, so she won't be estranged from her family. He ends her internship and the heroine thinks it's the end for them. After that, she goes home to find the hero speaking on her behalf to her parents as well as confessing his love for her. The father apologizes to the heroine and the hero asks the heroine to marry him. The heroine says yes and the ending was rather sweet.
