For prim and shy Daphne Wade, the sweetest guilty pleasure of all is secretly watching her employer, the Duke of Tremore, as he works the excavation site on his English estate. Anthony hired Daphne to restore the priceless treasures he has been digging up, but it’s hard for a woman to keep her mind on her work when her devastatingly handsome employer keeps taking his shirt off. He doesn’t know she’s alive, but who could blame her for falling hopelessly in love with him anyway?
Anthony thinks that his capable employee knows all there is to know about antiquities, but when his sister decides to turn the plain young woman in gold-rimmed glasses into an enticing beauty, he declares the task to be impossible. Daphne is devasted when she overhears…and determined to prove him wrong. Now a vibrant and delectable Daphne has emerged from her shell, and the tables are turned. Will Anthony see that the woman of his dreams has been there all along?
It took me a long time to decided if I wanted to read the book or not. Reading reviews didn’t help, so I gave the book a chance with the result that I absolutely loved it. Both Daphne and Anthony aren’t perfect, but after some personal growth they end up being perfect together!
