ITALIAN BOSS, HOUSEKEEPER BRIDE

Author(s): 
Natasha Phillips, businessman Raffaele de Ferretti's housekeeper, is secretly in love with him. But he barely notices her. When he needs a fake fiancee to ward off a family scandal, however, he asks Natasha for help. She gets a makeover, and it's hard to say who's more shocked by her transformation. Suddenly, she's extremely desirable, which terrifies Raffaele. After he accuses her of trying to manipulate him into marriage, Natasha quits her job. Only then does Raffaele know he's made a big mistake. Sharon Kendrick's Italian Boss, Housekeeper Bride (4) is Natasha's Cinderella story as she goes from colorless to a fully drawn character. Raffaele is not your usual Prince Charming -- he can be arrogant and condescending -- but love has a way of softening his edges.
