The Saturday Review

The Duke’s Boardroom Affair
by Michelle Celmer
Harlequin Silhouette Desire
ISBN 13-978-0-373-76919-3

Duke Charles Mead’s family destroyed Victoria Houghton’s family business and now she must work for the very man that planned the takeover.
Mallory wants nothing to do with the royal playboy lawyer despite his efforts to charm her. Charles pursues Victoria, but she pushes him away until she finds out that her father had deceived her about his part in the failure of their hotel. Victoria decides to live for herself, accepting Charles’s advances. At a birthday party for Charles’s father, Victoria discovers she loves Charles and tells him. He makes no response. Victoria leaves the party and makes plans to move away. Charles, after some soul searching, goes after Victoria asking her to stay, and marry him. Charles is a character that makes the reader smile. He is not the usual stuffy royal. He knows how to have fun.

A fun, quick read. The characters are very likeable.
