Polly’s family business has been bought by the ruthless Damon Doukakis and Polly’s only goal is to keep her employees from being laid off. She’s required to work with Damon for the next three months, but he has some preconceived and unflattering ideas about her. Damon is always in control and takes self-discipline to a different level, but Polly has a special way of getting under his skin.
One of the traits I liked about Damon was his focus on meeting his responsibilities and protecting his own. It was his strength and his flaw. The same could be said about Polly. I loved that she was independent. She had to be self-reliant at an early age and doesn’t know how to accept help. Her independence was also her strength as well as her weakness.
And when Damon and Polly were together, the sparks flew! They are a dynamic couple and it was a fun read. Doukakis’s Apprentice by Sarah Morgan is a Harlequin Presents and it is nominated for the 2012 RITA in the Best Contemporary Series Romance category.
