Resort entrepreneur Sean Manley was all set to buy an historic mansion at a great price, making a name for himself while making millions, when the seller and a poker bet change the game. Now he’s in the place as a hunky male maid and there’s one more complication: Livvy Carolla.
The house is Livvy’s inheritance. Her plan? Unload it to the highest bidder and use the cash to start her own bakery business. One look at “the help” and she’s hot to take him with her. Until she finds out he’s got a secret agenda.
But when Sean falls for the free-spirited, strong-willed Livvy, he has new ideas for the estate—and Livvy’s part in it. If all goes well, they’ll both be getting what they want. And then some.
I love the Manley Maids and I cannot wait to read the upcoming stories. This light and sweet romance kept me chuckling and was just perfect for my giant-sized case of the winter blahs. I seriously wanted to dislike Sean for his dishonesty but seeing as he was so torn up over it I couldn’t bring myself to join the hater club. And truth be told even though I love animals I would not be happy with the barnyard creatures camped out in the formal living room either, so seeing as he didn’t blow a gasket I figured he had to be a good guy. Add to the fact he was willing to wear mint green for his baby sister and I knew he was a definite winner. As superficial as this sounds, any woman who can still manage to stay attractive while wearing army boots and a gypsy skirt while sliding down a banister completely gets my vote as an interesting heroine. I cannot wait to read the next books and something tells me that I'll be rereading this book over and over again and enjoying it just as much.
