Can she convince a man to let down his defenses when he's set on guarding his heart?"Tall, dark and eligible?"
That's all that matters to the women of Jacobsville when it comes to handsome and aloof FBI agent Jon Blackhawk. But if it were up to him, he would never settle down. Luckily, Jon has the best gatekeeper: his efficient and reliable assistant, Joceline Perry. Without her help, he'd be at the mercy of husband hunters--but the more he comes to rely on her, the more he notices how invaluable she really is...
While Joceline can't deny that her boss is attractive, as a single mother with responsibilities she's determined to be professional. But when Jon is accosted by a criminal seeking revenge, she comes to his aid--fueling the spark that is growing between them.
As the attempts on Jon's life increase, Joceline stands by his side. But when the smoke clears, will the man who avoided love realize that all he ever needed was right there all along?
Cover: Really just a typical romance novel cover. I don't hate it and I don't love it.
I don't really read a lot of adult romance books, but my mum is a Diana Palmer fan and has a few on her bookshelf. I remember a few years on holiday my mum was reading one of her books, I picked it up and read it in a couple of hours and loved it.
So as it was crazy in the run up to Christmas, I decided I needed something light, quick and fun to read. So I raided my mum's bookshelf for a stack of Diana Palmer novels.
I really enjoyed Merciless. I read it in a day.
There's not much to say about it, other than it was a really sweet, light read.
I loved the fun working relationship between Jon and Joceline and developed into something more, and I loved her son Markie- he was incredibly sweet and bright.
If you're a romance fan you should definitely give Diana Paler a try!
I had high standards from back when I read Before Sunrise, and unfortunately this wasn't as good as that, but I still really enjoyed reading it!
