5.0 out of 5 stars 5+ Stars: Beautful! A treasure! 6 July 2008
Liz Fielding's THE TEMP AND THE TYCOON is the eleventh book in a 24 book collection of classic short story romances celebrating the 100th birthday of Mills and Boon. Liz Fielding brings together a wonderful hero and heroine on a riveting journey of humorous dramatic conflicts to a final extraordinary moment that expresses the sheer power of love to transform hearts.

Talie Calhoun is late for the first day on her new temp job! Once inside the elevator of Radcliffe Tower, she can't help but share her first day jitters with the unknown sexy man standing beside her ---- a man she doesn't realize is her new boss! Jude, a man of all business and no play, just does not know what to make of Talie and her unusual reason for tardiness. When the two of them are unexpectedly forced to work together, how will he tame her propensity for joy, misadventure and living life to the fullest? Hard as he might try to keep their minds on business, can Talie show Jude how to open up his heart and savor each moment? When attraction sparks, will Jude's dedication to detail and long term strategies win Talie's heart and open their lives to a dream neither of them thought even possible?

In THE TEMP AND THE TYCOON, Liz Fielding brings together two opposites in a story that takes the reader on a journey of laughter and misadventure, romantic tension all the way to an ending full of joy and emotion. Talie's guilelessness mixed with professional excellence bubbles right off the page into the heart, a wonderful combination that touches both the little girl and woman within us all. Jude's attention to business detail has earned him a reputation to be envied, but when he turns that same dedication to winning the woman he loves, love takes a heart-warming magical turn.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Temp and the Sexy Tycoon. 1 Nov 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story follows a standard Mills and Boon storyline. The heroine is scatty with crazy, uncontrollable hair and the hero is smoulderingly sexy. A good, escapist read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been good 27 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I think this is a shame as this book could have been a good read but I just found the male far too obnoxious - quite frankly I would have told him to stuff his job and can't understand why the heroine, who was a much better character, didn't do this. He came across as a boring, selfish, spolit, stuffy, workaholic with no life - a massive big saddo, not at all attractive in any shape or form. I thought this was a shame as her character deserved more. I appreciate that he changed his view on her once he got to know her better but the switch was a bit sudden as well - I really couldn't imagine such a creep managing to change and feel he deserved to remain as he was and die a lonely grumpy old man !!

I have given this 5 even though the ending could have been made a little longer. It just seemed to be a bit rushed. Other than that though, I found both characters very funny. Read more
