A single kiss can change everything...
In the first novel of the Sweetest Kisses series,
Hannah Stark has set her sights on corporate law to assure her a career
of paperwork, predictability, and conservative suits. Contracts,
finance, and the art of the deal sing to her, while the mess and misery
of the courtroom do not. But her daughter needs to eat, so when Hannah
is offered a temporary position in a small town firm's domestic
relations department, she reluctantly accepts.
Trent Knightley is
mightily drawn to his newest associate, though Hannah is as protective
of her privacy as she is competent. When their friendship and attraction
heat up, Hannah's secrets put her heart and Trent's hopes in double
A Single Kiss by Grace Burrowes
The last thing Hannah Stark wanted was to practice family law. When she took a position at a respected law firm, that was not her intent, but fate had a different idea for her. Her job working under one of the firm’s partners turns out to not only help pay the bills, but her boss turns out to be the legal system’s answer to Prince Charming. Does Trent find her as fascinating as she finds him? There are rules in the corporate world, no fraternizing and all that, but, would getting involved with the boss be all that bad? How does one deal with a romantic relationship when one’s formative years were endured within the foster care system where nothing was forever?
Author Grace Burrowes has taken the plunge into the world of contemporary romance with A Single Kiss and while leaving the heaving bosoms behind, she has retained her ability to bring romance alive through her words. Her characters become real, dimensional and each comes from a completely opposite background, but both have a passion for those around them that becomes clear through their actions and words. A touch of humor, some smoldering tension and some very contemporary issues raised within this tale make for a wonder, smooth-flowing tale of love when you least expect it, but need it the most. Good romance is good romance, no matter the century!
I received an ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest review.
