Kate Savage’s day is not off to a good start.  She’s late for her temporary job as PA, she’s a mess, and her boss doesn’t want to listen to any excuses.  So what if soft-hearted Kate was only late because she  was helping an elderly lady navigate her way through London’s underground system?  Finn McBride doesn’t want to hear it.

He just wants Kate to show up on time, ready to work.  Finn might be outwardly attractive, but he’s intense, grumpy, and stern.  Kate isn’t having an easy time filling in for his perfect secretary, Alison.  Now her
friends have decided to set her up on a blind date, with a widower looking for  a stepmother for his daughter.  Kate decides she might as well make the best of it. How bad can it be?  Unfortunately, Kate’s question is answered when she’s introduced to her blind date: Finn McBride!  When  he finds himself on a blind date with Kate, Finn isn’t any happier than  she is.  She may be beautiful, but they don’t seem to get along with each other very well.  They still have to work together for several more weeks, too, since he doesn’t have time to train another temp.  How did  he get stuck with a soft-hearted, flighty secretary who doesn’t seem to  know the meaning of the word “prompt”?  Kate does her best to behave like a professional PA at the office, but she just can’t break her habit of taking in strays and jumping in to help people in need.  When Finn asks her to be a live-in nanny for his daughter, and pretend to be his  fiancée on top of it all, Kate can’t help but agree.  She may be falling for Finn, but she can control her feelings, can’t she?  Especially when  she’s certain Finn can never fall for her.

The Blind-Date Proposal is a sweet, romantic story that’s guaranteed to
make you smile.  It’s the second book in Jessica Hart’s “City Brides”
trilogy.  I’m impatiently waiting for the third!
