HIS INHERITED WIFE
Still mourning her husband, Shannon Morris must rise to the challenge of his legacy -- a business partnership with his friend Jase Pembrooke. Initially unconvinced that a former secretary has much to contribute to his security company, Jase soon changes his mind. The attraction he felt toward Shannon before she started dating her late husband returns in full force. It's obviously reciprocated -- and now there's nothing to stop them from exploring it. Barbara McMahon's His Inherited Wife (3) has a solid plot and conflict, and Shannon is a beautifully realized heroine. Jase, however, isn't handled as well -- his actions often seem inconsistent and overbearing.
