The courtship charade
As a draftswoman in a man's world, Jessica Sinclair causes a stir as her new male colleagues vie for her attention. And the company manager has an ultimatum: fake a courtship with her boss, Flynt Kavanaugh...or lose her job. But pretending to be smitten with the handsome engineer unleashes a real, complicated attraction -- and could reveal the past she hoped to keep hidden.
Jessica is certainly the best person for the job. But as their make-believe romance escalates, Flynt knows that's not the only reason he wants her on his team. However, with his past shrouded by a shameful secret, Flynt has always focused his ambitions on building a career, not a family. Now he has designs on Jessica's heart, but can they trust each other with the truth?
What a fascinating time and place for a historical setting. And how exciting to have the heroine work at an unusual job. Jessica faces all kinds of prejudice as a draftswoman in the male dominated profession. Honestly, I was fuming over the concept that the draftsmen's inattention to work was her fault! Gah! However I guess I shouldn't complain too loudly since that's the reason the make-believe romance comes into play. And, oh what fun that is! Jessica trying not to be attracted to Flynt. Flynt trying not to take his role as besotted beau too seriously. Both of them failing miserably -- but not trusting one another enough to turn make-believe into reality. A beautiful inspirational thread about the power of grace fleshed out Flynt and Jessica's love story to perfection. Captivating from beginning to end.
