THE DAREDEVIL TYCOON
THE DAREDEVIL TYCOON (4) by Barbara McMahon: When her boss is challenged to a 10-day hot-air balloon race by Rafael Sandoval, one of his business associates, P.A. Amalia Catalon is amused. That's before she's tapped to be Rafael's teammate -- and there's no getting out of it, despite her fear of heights! Amalia is the opposite of the women Rafael usually dates, which he finds curiously refreshing. And Rafael's not the arrogant playboy Amalia expects -- but falling for him would be disastrous, because they're from different worlds. A fresh spin on some tried-and-true plot elements makes this story work beautifully -- and its outspoken, honest heroine is a delight.
