Dr. Jules Montgomery needed a hero for just one night. Dane Andrews, Boss to his men, had only one rule—never mess with any woman in his home town. All it took was a stranger’s arms wrapped around his neck, and her soft, warm lips whispering in his ear, "Help a girl out. Your name's Gary, and you're my boyfriend," for Boss to break his rules.
Boss quickly stepped into the role of hero and fantasy boyfriend, finding it impossible to say no to the mesmerizing beautiful redhead. He played Gary to her Red. For one night only, they belonged to each other, fulfilling each other’s fantasies.
Five years later, fate and a redheaded four-almost five-year-old named Becca reunite them once again. Their lives have taken different paths, although neither has forgotten the other. Jules returns to her home town to reconcile with her aunt, only to discover that her aunt is the housekeeper to Boss, a man with an occupation that goes against everything Jules holds dear. Boss is considered a hero by those who know him, although he now needs a service dog by the name of Lucky to keep him safe. Together, man and dog become the heroes that Jules needs once again to keep her and her family safe for more than one night.
Deborah Armstrong believes in love, romance, and happily ever after. Although she is still in search of that perfect cup of coffee, she finds time to enjoy her favourite past times: reading, music, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.
Some people can't help it. They get on other people's nerves. Something about them may seem normal to them but not to others. They may have a creepy stare, a crazy laugh, or a way of moving that unnerves those around them.
I love that Boss's right-hand man gets on Jules' nerves. Bates is a large man, hard to miss, but he has the knack of sneaking up on Jules, unnerving her. Little did I know that he'd make his way into my next book, Bates, and show his true self.
It was the way he could move, despite his size, quietly and quickly, and how he entered a room without her hearing a sound. He unnerved her. That’s what it was. Bates got on Jules’ nerves.
