"Sassy coffee shop encounters leads to romance between legal secretary and her boss"

Case For Seduction
Ann Christopher

Reviewed by Patricia Woodside
Posted September 29, 2012

Romance

Legal secretary Charlotte Evans has a sassy encounter with her boss Jake Hamilton at a coffee shop. But he's the boss, which makes him off limits. Not to mention that he's a known womanizer.

Jake has never been drawn to a woman as he is to Charlotte. He's not trying to invite a sexual harassment claim, but the chemistry between them is too much to ignore. He finds himself doing and saying things he would never otherwise do because snaring this determined lady requires him to break all his rules.

CASE FOR SEDUCTION is the first book in The Hamiltons Laws of Love mini-series. Ann Christopher, whose romances are always smart, romantic and fun, doesn't disappoint. Charlotte and Jake make a great match. Charlotte is both legal secretary and law student, more than up to the task of locking horns with Jake Hamilton. She's also a single mother so her decisions are often driven by what's right for her toddler son, Harry. Jake, one of a family of wealthy Hamilton lawyers, ultimately wants more to his life than money can buy. He's got a diva of a mother, one who might remind readers of Diahann Caroll's Dynasty character, Dominique Devereaux. Then there's Charlotte's ex-boyfriend and Harry's father, a surgical resident not unlike Eriq LaSalle's Dr. Benton on another popular television series, ER.

Along with providing a fast-paced yet satisfying read, Christopher does an excellent job of developing her characters and giving enough of a peek into a few of the other Hamilton kin to whet readers' appetites for the books to come.

SUMMARY

Law Number 1: Never Fall For Your Boss!

Too late, since Charlotte Evans has been secretly head over heels for Jake Hamilton ever since she started working at his family's renowned Philadelphia law firm. She's too smart to expect the die-hard bachelor to suddenly turn into Mr. Right, until he starts putting the moves—on her!

Jake's prowess is legendary—in and out of the courtroom. He's never met a woman he couldn't seduce, except Charlotte Evans. Jake's lovely assistant may be the only female on the planet who sees past his playboy facade. And now Jake wants forever with the one woman he can't have. Because when it comes to love, some laws are made to be broken.
