by Emma Darcy
What a treasure!
Jack Devila always
has a skinny blonde on his arm. How can he know
about relationships when his family never provided a good role model
for stable relationships? Merlina Rossi is a curvy brunette who comes
from a solid Italian family. In the workplace, Jack and Merlina spar
and butt heads ---- the game is electric! Has Jack gone too far when he
asks her to plan his grandfather's birthday surprise or will she teach
him a lesson? What happens when the sparks fly outside of the workplace?
Wow, wow---terrific! The characters are all so lovable---especially
Jack's grandfather! Merlina's father is the perfect counterpoint to
Byron. This novel includes Fun references to film culture as well.
In The Playboy Boss's Chosen Bride,
Emma Darcy has great passion scenes. Even better, I was thoroughly
delighted to read about a hero who is a curvy woman, especially after
seeing all the anorexic-looking models in our culture. Unusual and
This book may be small but it is a real treasure! It takes tremendous
skill to write so well in a short novel and Emma Darcy is magnificent.
In no way is this book small in terms of the writing ---- rather it is
exquisite! The characters are well-developed. The plot is tight,
compact and perfectly orchestrated. Not one word is wasted. Perfect!
