Blurb: She has a shield...he has one too...and they’re both hiding secrets.

Serious-minded Sandy Donovan has one unbreakable rule—never fall for a rich playboy. Falling for a playboy destroyed her mother and ruined Sandy’s childhood. She’s determined never to let the same thing happen to her. Unfortunately, the only man to make her hormones sit up and take notice is a playboy who doesn’t know the first thing about taking life seriously.

A lonely, miserable childhood taught Cameron Berkeley-Scott to hide his feelings in humour, but his comic nature is pushing away the one woman he wants to draw near. She thinks he’s a playboy—a title he has no desire to have—and ignores his outrageous flirting.

Now it’s time for Cameron to show Sandy he isn’t the irresponsible pleasure-seeker she thinks—but will she run when she finds out who he really is?

Review: You know...there are times when I come across a sweet little story like this one, that I thank my lucky stars my mother pushed me so hard as a child to read. And when I baulked as a young teen, she handed me a romance novel. I LOVE READING!!! But one of the things that makes me love reading as much as I do is wonderfully written, heart-felt stories like this one.

Ms DeVere has done a magnificent job in telling a tale, warts and all, and having it all come out smelling like roses in the end. The characters were great, the plot solid and the story...sigh...yeah, it was really good.

*SNAPS* Monique, on a job well done :)
