Gina Williams has a secret and prays it is buried with her childhood persecutor, Em Kouvaris, as discovery will ruin her reputation as a famous children’s author. She soon discovers the son, Ben Kouvaris, new owner of her publishing company, has uncovered her past and is making demands. Will he ruin her career if she doesn’t comply?
Ben Kouvaris is blown away by the unknown beauty at his estranged mother's funeral, and when his father demands he marry, immediately, to secure the family business, he knows just who he wants as his temporary bride. But can Ben persuade Gina to trust him?
Why would someone work for an older lady if they hate them? Why would you spend your whole life wanting to find out secrets long-lost buried? That is something that Gina Williams is trying to understand. Em Kouvaris was an evil woman and one who deserved no love. Yet one person feels differently and that is her son, Ben Kouvaris. As a children’s author Gina can weave stories to hide her pain but now Ben wants her to do appearances. No one must know who she really is and now she must decide what do in her life. Not only must she need to keep her identity from Ben but decide whether to marry him.
Ben Kouvaris hates his mother ever since he was a child. He has no idea why she wanted to be rid of him those years ago. Now that she is gone he has questions that are unanswered and why a woman, beautiful one at that, attended his mother’s funeral. Something about the woman reminds him of Gina but can’t understand the connection to his mother. All he knows is his father is threatening him by removing his legacy. He must marry. Ben knows he’s a good catch but has no idea who would want to marry him and just walk away without any prenup. Each time he considers another woman Gina’s face appears in his mind. She is beautiful, sexy, smart and definitely so opposite from him in every way. Can he convince Gina they belong together?
Ben and Gina two people so different yet share something in common. I loved that even though they shared something in common they try to let it stay in the past. The heartache they suffered is what makes them stronger each day. Through it all though I have to say that their romance was slow yet it speeded up once they’re true identities are revealed. The love between them is strong yet they have many things to overcome. Sherry did a great job in creating these two yet shows that even though they had no love at a young age they embrace whatever love they can find. Loved it!
