THE TYCOON'S CHRISTMAS PROPOSAL
Three years after surviving a Christmas Eve car wreck that killed his wife and daughter, financier Dawson Burke still can't face celebrating, or even thinking about, the holidays. But his new personal shopper, Eve Hawley, is determined to change that. Their attraction comes as a surprise to both, but Dawson's honest enough to tell Eve he's not ready for anything permanent. Which is fine, until Eve falls for Dawson and wonders if he'll ever really be hers. Jackie Braun's The Tycoon's Christmas Proposal (4.5) strikes just the right balance between humor and deep emotion, and Dawson's an unforgettable hero. Top-notch.
