3.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Read 16 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a pleasant way to spend a few hours. It was OK as these books go but nothing 'out of the ordinary'. Although I enjoyed it I don't think I will read it again. The hero/heroine interaction needed to be a bit more feisty for my taste. However don't let my comments stop you from reading this book as it was still a nice read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Virgin PA and Ruthless Boss 10 Sep 2009
By Marilyn Shoemaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Andrea Buttonfield has a serious problem. Not only was her father and fiancé recently killed in an automobile accident, she and her mother have been left penniless. Linus Harrison a millionaire has offered to purchase the family home but he wants something from Andrea, he wants her to be his personal assistance. In exchange, he'll allow her mother to live rent free at the gate house. She really has no choice, so she accepts his offer.

Now a year later, Linus wants her to accompany him to Scotland to view a possible new venture. He's a rugby fan and also plans to attend a match and also stop by and see his aunt who he adores. As a young boy, his mother passed away and this woman raised him. For Andrea this is a problem because she's more away of him as a man. She's also aware he doesn't mix business with pleasure so she's concerned about taking the trip with Linus.
The Virgin Secretary's Impossible Boss is the last book in the International Billionaire series, a series created by Mills and Boon and the 6 Nations Rugby League. This particular book takes place over a few short days, days filled with torment for Andrea and frustration for Linus.

Carole Mortimer's development of both characters actually reminded me of Spencer Tracy and Kathryn Hepburn as they agreed to disagree. The sexual tension rolls off both of them as well as frustration. When they become snowbound and there is only one room and one bed, you can well imagine the mess it creates. Andi is so aware of Linus, it tortures her and when he kisses her it's torment for them both.

Linus as a young man only concerned himself with one thing, becoming a success. He gained his success honestly and I believe because of his mother and aunt and their teachings. As for women, he chose them carefully; always making sure no one got hurt. Now since he's kissed Andi, he realizes all he wants is to get her in his bed. However, he also realizes he needs to get things back on an professional basis as boss and PA. His only mistake is when he blurts out that her fiancé was a shake!

Andi learning the truth creates such an emotional mess, she leaves him and returns home to her mother to learn the truth. However, the truth jumps out at her when she realizes she loves Linus. She adores him for the man he's become, due to his hard work, guidance from the women who raised him and his honestly, unlike her fiancé.

The Virgin Secretary's Impossible Boss was a fun and charming read and a spectacular ending to the wonderful International Billionaire series.

1.0 out of 5 stars unreadable 4 Aug 2012
By Sophie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've tried four times, as of today, to read this book all the way through.

It's impossible.

The plot is ludicrous, the heroine is unrealistic & unlikeable, the hero makes no sense...only the Auntie & Heroine's Mom are appealing, and both of them conceal crucial plot points which would've made the book unnecessary. Both are cardboard cut-outs of stereotypes. Still - more interesting & appealing than the H&H.

Heroine begins as a Prim & Reserved Aristocrat, whose apparently perfect fiance died in a car accident with her daddy. Hero is an up-from-the-rough-streets-of-Glasgow Majorly Rich & Handsome Guy who blackmails heroine into working for him. (Since her daddy died, she & her mum have mounds of debt. Hero plots to put her mum out on the street if heroine won't work as his PA - cause he's purchased her family/ancestral home for a hotel & wants her to decorate it. What? He's so desperate for a secretary/interior designer that he'll make a penniless widow homeless? The guy who we're supposed to believe, farther on, totally respects his mom & his auntie, & visits heroine's mom just to chat?)

They spend so many tedious amounts of pages in introspection - so many incredibly boring amounts of pages - so many that I *still* can't bring myself to read this book all the way through. I zoom through every page without a quotation mark - which eliminates at least a quarter of the book. Then skim the pages with one or two lines with quotation marks - that's another quarter. Then skim lightly over the parts where the heroine is a spineless dweeb. Glance at the parts where the hero changes personalities. I'm left with maybe a fifth of a book.
