BEAUTY AND THE BROODING BOSS
BEAUTY AND THE BROODING BOSS (3) by Barbara Wallace: Kelsey Albertelli accepts a summer job in the Berkshires working as a secretary for the famous, but hermit-like, writer Alex Markoff. He writes his manuscripts in longhand and has broken his arm. Forced on him by his agent due to impending deadlines, Kelsey thinks her gruff boss is intimidating. Soon, she works her way past his defenses to discover a soft heart. This is a fast-paced, fun rendition of the classic Beauty and the Beast story. However, Kelsey’s immediate attraction to her boss seems out of character for a tough woman who has overcome past adversity.
