PROMOTED: TO WIFE AND MOTHER
Operations manager Perdita James' first meeting with her company's new CEO, Edward Merrick, isn't exactly the stuff dreams are made of. But Ed seems more amused than annoyed by Perdita, and soon they've slipped into friendship. Single dad Ed wants much more, but he's fairly sure an attractive woman like Perdita couldn't be interested in him. He's mistaken, but once-burned Perdita's only willing to have an affair -- and even that's tricky, with her history! Jessica Hart's Promoted: To Wife and Mother (4.5) has everything: a simple, well-structured plot; mature, credibly motivated characters; and genuine sizzle to spare. Very good, indeed!
