Cassandra Lee doesn’t do emotion. Why would you want to feel anything when your son and father have died in horrific circumstances? Why would you want to do anything other than exact revenge on the man you hold responsible for the tragedy? Revenge is her only focus so she studies his business and revamps her image with the aim of becoming his PA and sabotaging his fortune.
And Dallas Mackenzie’s wealth is important to him. He’s restored his family’s fortunes after his father nearly lost everything through drink, violence and deceit. He believes he’s inherited his father’s violent temper and alcoholism and is determined not to succumb to them. He values honesty above all else and focuses on working hard and avoiding emotional attachment at any cost, even an empty life.
But empty lives can be filled–at least for a short while–and Dallas sets out to seduce Cassandra. Unfortunately seduction–and her body’s responses to this arrogant, powerful and sexy man–wasn’t something Cassandra could prepare for. She just hopes that his interest–and her resistance–will hold out long enough to ruin him…
The PA’s Revenge is Book 1 in The Mackenzies series. Book 2–The Marriage Trap–is out now. Book 3 is coming soon.
A very interesting story. I purchased this as a group of NZ Romance Writers books, this was the first story.
I really enjoyed the character of Cassandra, a woman who lost a lot, and is after revenge from the person who perpetrated it on her family. Her bitterness and anger is very real, but as she works with Dallas, she realises that there is another side to him, which seems to totally conflict with the image she holds of him. Could he really have done what she thinks he has done.
Dallas has worked hard to create his business, and he doesn’t mix business with pleasure, however the no nonsense Cassandra has piqued his interest, and he can’t wait to mix all sorts of things together.
Dallas finds out that Cassandra was trying to ruin him, but she has already found out the truth, and they part, under sad circumstances, but Dallas can’t get Cassandra out of his mind, or heart.
A lovely delightful read, based in Wellington NZ.
