When Aaron Lear learned he was dying of cancer he decided to make his three daughters learn to stand on their own two feet and face life head on! He began with his oldest, Robin.
Robin Lear was the vice president of LTI's Southwest Operations. Since Robin had grown up with money she never thought about how much she spent or where. Expensive brand names were important to her. Taking the company's jet to Paris, France, for an afternoon of shopping was a common event. When Robin found out her father was dying, shock was her first reaction. He had always seemed invincible in her eyes. Robin and Aaron were never close because no matter how hard she tried, Robin could no nothing worthy of her father's respect. Suddenly he was demoting Robin and expected her to learn the business from the bottom ... and like it!
Jake Manning was hired by Robin to renovate her newly purchased house. It would take several months for Jake and his small team to complete. Jake believed Robin to be an ice princess. Someone he had to deal with in order to earn the money he so desperately needed to finish his degree. Jake's life had never been easy and he had a few people depending on him. So Jake knew he should do the work quickly and keep away from the tempting Miss Lear.
***** This is the first of a trilogy. It follows the oldest daughter, Robin. Author Julia London excels in Contemporary Romance and this story will show you how much. Full of sassy characters and lots of humor. I could not stop myself from reading. Therefore, I lost a lot of sleep. Excellent! *****
