HIGH-POWERED, HOT-BLOODED (4) by Susan Mallery: Duncan Patrick has been named the meanest CEO for the second year in a row, and his board has given him an ultimatum: Clean up his act or else. Enter Annie McCoy, kindergarten teacher and all-around good person. When her brother winds up indebted to him, Duncan hires her to help him change his image. If the experiment works, the debt will be canceled. But a whole new set of problems could be on the horizon as dastardly Duncan falls for sweet Annie. Mallery's characters are, as always, colorful and entertaining, and she has another extra-base hit with this fine tale of opposites attracting.
