From the back cover:
Ria was tired of leading a double life. James Everett, the domineering head of Everett Communications, had never found a secretary who could meet his impossible standards - not until Ria came along. James demanded cool efficiency and exclusive loyalty from a secretary so Ria donned spectacles and learned to blend in with the sleek office furniture. But she couldn't escape her boss' notice. As James became increasingly fascinated by his elusive secretary, Ria found herself responding to him with a long dormant passion. As their attraction grew, she wondered what James, a confirmed bachelor would think when he discovered she was a warmhearted, tempestuous woman, the widowed mother of twins - and very much in love.
The back cover leads you to believe this book is more exciting than it actually is. And I'm sorry, but I think wearing a wig and glasses you don't need a little too extreme, even for a Harlequin story. Overall, the book is not bad, it has some very good dialogue mostly, and good chemistry between the two leads, when she is not in her disguise, but it doesn't capture your imagination right away. At least, it didn't mine, but I still recommend the book.

One of My Favorites.Reviewed in the United States on 29 July 2003
This book is one of my favorites for a variety of reasons. First of all it featured a woman who was a mother and a career woman who made it in a man's world with great success. Also the plot featured an intricate twist of her being labelled a scarlet woman by her own boss unknowingly which led to a very interesting and entertaining read. I would recommend this book to all even though some might find it a bit too predictable. But isn't that why we read M&Bs? To find a happy ending!
