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.

Liz Fielding is the master of memorable detail. How can anyone forget Talie's crazy hair or Jude's reaction to her! Or that one detail of attire that expresses so much sexiness and romance together in just a few words! The ending brought a tear or two to my eye, as much for the beauty of the writing as the emotion of the story. Talia's story is not to be missed! THE TEMP AND THE TYCOON is a must read for Liz Fielding fans and a great way for those new to this author to see for themselves why this author's romances captivate with stories that move the heart with a richness of emotion that fills the reader with deep joy. THE TEMP AND THE TYCOON is beautiful --- beautiful for its writing, beautiful for its emotion, beautiful for bringing together two vulnerable people whose love for one another opens doors.

This was a lovely escapist read with a fabulous heroine and a hunky hero, wish it had been 100 pages longer.

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.

Lovely romantic story. The heroine was a lovely girl but always caught up in other people's business. The only one who stopped when she saw someone I'll in the tube, always ready to help out anyone. Full of exuberance and took life as it comes. From a temp to accompanying her boss to New York she worked hard but fell in love with New York and her boss. Of course he fell for her as well as all good romantic stories should end. You must read this.

Not what you would usually expect from a Mills and Boon. This book was very childish in my opinion. It seemed more suited to a teenager. The author also tried comedy in it but failed dismally. Sorry not worth a buy. This book might as well have been written by a 12 year old. Badly written overall. On the plus side, the book arrived on time and was reasonably priced.
