Christmas setting on a dairy farm was a nice change of pace from the normal North America frou frou typically found in holiday romances and I loved the cozy feel of the story It takes place over a weekend, so the romance does move rather fast which is really the only thing I m going to ding this book over A B on my personal scale but I immediately went diving into my TBR to see if I haveMarion Lennox on hand What a fun holiday book Strong heroine, grouchy, sexy boss Very emotional story and the heroine s family was awesome I loved the heroine s grandmother and her brother Loved the farm and Christmas in Australia It was one of those romances you couldn t put down Sweet, romantic, with characters who aren t perfect but who are perfect to read about It made me feel warm and fuzzy inside, which is just how I like to feel this time of year I highly recommend this book Meg Jardine works for a young, rich and very handsome man who lives in Australia just for three months in a year Their relationship is strictly professional and they have never seen each other in a different way from what they really are a boss and his personal assistant This Christmas, though, things are going to be

a young, rich and very handsome man who lives in Australia just for three months in a year Their relationship is strictly professional and they have never seen each other in a different way from what they really are a boss and his personal assistant This Christmas, though, things are going to be very dissimilar from the past Because of a plane strike, the loner and aloof boss, William McMaster, is forced to spend Christmas time at Meg s farm with her family, and they risk to cross the line and become somethingthan employer and employee.I loved this story It is fun and light hearted, a good read for any season It was strange to read about a hot Christmas, since the whole story is set in Australia and the characters wear light clothes and short sleeved shirts all the time, but I loved the atmosphere, the plot, everything the protagonists share and do It was nice to see how the strict boss slowly becomes aware of his assistant s real nature and starts to berelaxed and agreeable with her family and friends Perhaps, this is a common, already seen story but it was good all the same It is a romantic story mixed with laughs and embarrassing situations and I had a great time reading it Besides, it would be awesome to have a boss like William McMaster If you want to take a break from cold Christmas with snow and icy wind I highly recommend this delightful and pleasant book Rating 3.5 out of 5 stars I loved this book I started it yesterday and immediately fell in love I even sulked a little when it was bedtime because I wanted to keep reading Then I got up early this morning, hoping to get some work done, but read straight through to the end instead.Charming is a word that comes immediately to mind The hero is deliciously growly and withdrawn, but we get just enough of a glimpse into his POV to get to know him And the heroine is fun and a good match for him She doesn t take his crap, I loved this book I started it yesterday and immediately fell in love I even sulked a

his crap, and her reaction to his being inadvertently rude to her friend is one of my favorites in the book.It s a fun and light read, but with deeply emotional underpinnings that caused me to tear up throughout the book And it s rich Considering the short length, the depth of the characters including the heroine s grandmother and half brother, and even the dogs and the setting is amazing And the ending Oh, happy, happy sigh I HIGHLY recommend this fun, heartwarming Christmas romance This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Meg Jardine, personal assistant

family out in the middle of nowhere on her grandmother s dairy farm His attic bedroom sorry, the internet and the phone are out at the moment is hardly the sort of thing he s accustomed to, and tempers flare as the inconveniences pile up But William finds himself accepting the situation, even enjoying his time on the farm with Meg and her family And Meg finds herself falling for her boss It s an untenable situation, however, and Meg resigns as soon as she realizes she has lost the professional distance that makes their work relationship possible She informs William that the strike has ended and she can get him on the next flight out, but suddenly he s no longer so eager to escape.Well developed characters and foreign setting Australia make this classic romance stand out Modern women will appreciate Meg s strength, intelligence, and determination Why the guy always has to be powerful and aloof, I can t figure out William comes around in the end, though with plans to marry his love, improve the farm, and adopt his part time dog a Christmas gift from Meg s family The romance, while present, doesn t detract from a good story about decent people This was a random pick from

what it corresponded to on Calibre It s obviously a Christmas story Meg Jardine is billionaire William McMaster s Australian PA She gets paid a really excellent and much needed salary for being completely at his beck and call and solving all his problems during the short periods when he s in Australia The latest has fallen right before Christmas, and he s due to fly out to New York when disaster strikes Air traffic controllers go on strike and there s no way to fly out There are also no hotel rooms to be had in the whole city.Even though none of this is her fault, Meg feels she must come through with a solution to have any hope of keeping her job The best she can come up with is to invite her boss to stay with her family over Christmas There s an en suite room he can stay in and internet for him to work, and she promises no one will bother him But all plans for a simple continuation of their 100% professional working relationship fall by the wayside almost immediately The internet is down, Meg s grandmother refuses to countenance anyone referring to William as Mr MacMaster and William finds himself learningabout Meg the woman and her family.This is a nice enough story, but I m afraid I got very bored after the first third or so I ve read this so many times before The rigid person who deals with any feelings in a completely dysfunctional way thrust into a situation where others won t respect those boundaries and so our stuffed shirt character must adapt I don t like this story very much, I m afraid I keep wanting to shout at the presumptuous characters respect others wishes If someone honestly doesn t want to join in with the cheer, don t try to force them to But of course, it always turns out to be exactly what they needed, etc., etc Plus, I m SO over billionaire businessmen as romance heroes Sorry, but no Just no.MY GRADE A DNF Meg Jardine, personal assistant extraordinaire, is convinced she s about to lose her job Her gorgeous, dark and deeply unimpressed boss, William McMaster, is stranded in Melbourne over Christmas and it s all her fault With her heart in her mouth, she invites the intimidating billionaire home for the holidayAt Meg s chaotic, cozy family farm, William s cold reserve begins to melt away Suddenly they re seeing each other in a whole new light, and country girl Meg has shot straight to the top of William s Christmas list This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This is such a short book about 140 pages on my ereader but it REALLY works believably as a romance with a billionaire having a happy ever after The author even has time for strong side characters Scott and Letty, who are Meg s family as well as dogs from what I have heard about the Banksia books they have dogs, too oh and the cow Millicent of course, her of the fairly weak morals.The reason why William did he have be called McMasters has to stay with Meg and her family ove This is such a short book about 140 pages on my ereader but it REALLY works believably as a romance with a billionaire having a happy ever after The author even has time for strong side characters Scott and Letty, who are Meg s family as well as dogs from what I have heard about the Banksia books they have dogs, too oh and the cow Millicent of course, her of the fairly weak morals.The reason why William did he have be called McMasters has to stay with Meg and her family over Christmas is totally believable only once he is sitting in the train to the outback farm does he come up with the idea of buying a house short term to avoid the whole upset He still can t get to New York on time, though.Because Meg and William have known each other for three years and we get Meg s reasons for taking the job as William s PA and why she keeps enjoying it, the fast jump into love, once William really takes a look at the way he lives his life and why he has been doing so for so long, works for me.The scenes with the milking and the first impression of the Santa bedecked house were really funny view spoiler I only had to suspend my belief when Will and Meg were able to buy clothes and eat at a fancy restaurant without it having been mentioned that they d left the hospital clean having been covered in blood and dirt Will having just helped birth a calf and then saved Letty hide spoiler 4.5 stars Read this because of

but had to wonder why the heroine felt she had to resign her position, especially given how infrequently she saw her boss.Otherwise, loved the story, the characters, the emotions conveyed in the characterizations We see the heroine caring for her family and their reaction to it the way they try to care for her in return ANd how she comes to love the hero in such a short time He is caring, warm, and helpful despite his determination to be otherwise We see the hero s desire to keep emotionally clear but his inability to actually do so through his actions and his words I loved how he just got sucked into the love and warmth of the family.Loved the way the grandmother and brother quietly accepted Meg as the head of the household, but still supported her emotionally rather than taking from her There was give and take and real obvious love in this family.Terrific book The heroine has the perfect job she only works when her boss is in the country For 3 or 4 weeks, she can drop her real life, focus exclusively on work, and then when he skips town again, she can go back home But then everything blows up when the airline people go on strike just before Christmas, all the hotels

at your heartstrings, but never, IMO, stoops to sloppy sentimentality Grandma is a hoot The brother is a typical teen, with his own issues It s just a great book I liked it a lot
