Cynical billionaire Daniel Moretti works hard, plays harder, and has one ironclad rule. Never trust a woman. Bad news for historian Charlotte Doherty, who shows up at exactly the wrong time.
Like every other woman in Daniel's life, Charlotte wants something from him - the deed to her family farm. Daniel agrees, but only if he gets something in return: Charlotte's company for the weekend! The property is Charlotte's only link to the mother she never knew. Desperate to keep her history alive, she'll accept Daniel's indecent proposal, but not without a few terms of her own. Namely, a propriety clause. No flirting. No kissing. No sex.
Daniel has no intention of honoring her conditions, but after one weekend with Charlotte leaves him hungering for more, he can't help wondering if she could be the exception to his unbreakable rule...

The wisdom is reaching far beyond what we see. Delight in the journey
This is a very pleasant uplifting book about two people wanting to love, but afraid to take the risk. Charlotte is a professor with a best selling book who makes a deal with billionaire businessman Daniel Moretti in order to get back the farm her mother grew up on. Charlotte's mother left her and her father and brother when she was eight years older and was killed six months later. Thus the sole connection she has with her is the farm and some antique furniture.
Daniel Moretti is his mother's child from her first marriage; the one she ignores as if it had never happened. If he weren't a billionaire with connections in high places she would have forgotten he existed.
Unlike many books which feature romance this one doesn't go on and on describing emotions in such detail the fast forward button becomes attached to your finger. When the inevitable road block occurs in the relationship it isn't some ridiculous lack of communication issue getting blown totally out of proportion. It is instead an understandable overreaction based on personal history that is easily understandable.
Given the bargain price, this one is a great buy.
Story is OK.Performance is a big Patience Tester.I totally agree with Mary-Jane!
Too much tension in her voice made me uncomfortable.Little too high voice,little too hash excortication sounds, little too fast speed....All those points tested my patience, but I think main point is too much tension in her voice .I would like to listen once she relife her tension from her way of living,so I guess even same high voice,hashness and fast speed can be her charm.
