Product Description

Product Description

Logan Deverell has infuriated Kit Morris for the last time. She's had enough of her boss's temper, his ingratitude and, most of all, his complete oblivion to her feelings for him. But she certainly manages to get his attention when she quits and joins the Lassiter Agency as their newest detective.

Once he gets over his initial anger, Logan feels lost and miserable without Kit. Realizing what he needs to do, Logan vows to get Kit back…but he'll have to offer a lot more than a job—he'll have to give her his heart.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Case of the Missing Secretary 23 Dec 1999
By "alessa9" - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The back cover reads:
"Kit Morris would simply quit and let financial wizard Logan Deverell see for himself just how far his Midas touch took him...without a secretary! For three years she'd kept his books, losing her head over one singularly stubborn financial figure--Logan himself! If he was too proud to sense the sparks, Kit had a mind to make him sense their absence! How was a respectable busienessman supposed to react when his missing secretary turned out working for a private eye? Sure, Logan was miserable. But he couldn't ask Kit to come back to work when every inch of him wanter her--for play!"

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful! 6 Feb 2002
By Beatrice - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I had to keep checking the front page to make sure this terrible book was by one of my favorite authors, Diana Palmer. Every character in this novel was one-dimensional, and the book was so dialogue heavy. It never SHOWED me what the characters were feeling, but only what they were saying. I love Diana Palmer but this book was such a dissapointment. I wanted to love it, but I did not care about whether the characters got together or whether they lived or died. This was one of the worst books I've ever read. The only reason I finished it was to be fair to one of my favorite authors. Pass on this one; it's a waste of time. Try Palmer's Lacy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrific 16 April 2011
By The book lady - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kit got fired from her job as Logan's secretary two weeks ago because of comments she made about his fiancée, Betsy. Kit knows that Betsy ruined a man, taking him for all he was worth and doesn't want that to happen to Logan, the fact she's in love with him doesn't make her any more objective about the whole situation. Now Logan realizes how good he had it with Kit and wants her back, but she wants no part of it, and so begins a tale of malevolent children, wedding hungry men, sex obsessed bosses and white wedding virgins.

I honestly can't begin to describe just how truly awful this book it. The plot is utterly ridiculous, the worst being Logan's young cousin's who kidnap, assault and vandalize the property of anyone brave enough to come on their property, while their father asks every woman he meets to marry him, to get someone to raise the children (read demons), he ignores. Then there's Logan, a MASSIVE jerk who doesn't think there is anything wrong with sleeping with Kit while engaged to Betsy because he's only marrying Betsy because she won't put out anyway. Once he finds out Kit loves him he uses her feelings to try to get her to sleep with him even thought she is a never been touched virgin, and he doesn't even have a twinge of continuous about having an affair with her when he's committed to someone else because it wouldn't be some cheap one night stand because he needs more time than that before he was ready to move on, Kit's feelings be damned. Not to mention he kept an apartment just to screw women in and that was the only place he ever took Kit, yeah, real classy. And finally there's Kit who is just about every spunky virgin heroine cliché combined into one annoying character.

I am not what you would call a Diana Palmer fan but I have read a book or two by her before and they were fine, I didn't love them but I sure didn't hate them. This was a joke. The heroine is treated like crap by Logan, despite all their blow out fights, all he has to do is snap his fingers and she comes running to him.

I can't even begin to describe how horrible this is. Maybe as some kind of spoof of a secretary/boss romance this would work but this is supposed to be serious. I'm sorry but I just hated it.

1 star.

I love all of Diane Palmer's books. I've read them all in paperback and am now adding them to my Kindle.
Her gals are usually virgins and the men are rather rough snd gruff. The softness and gentleness of the
gal tends to help mellow "her" man. So, if you like this style of book you won't be disappointed with any of her books.
