Dana Point, California Present Day

On the day that Sadie Matthews finally gives notice to her boss, Ethan Hunt, that she's leaving, a baby is dropped off at the office. Years ago, Ethan had promised his then best friend that he'd be the guardian for any child he and his wife had. Well, this is his friend's baby, now an orphan. For a bachelor, a baby is the last thing that's wanted. Ethan doesn't have a clue how to care for a baby, so he turns to Sadie, throwing in a ton of money for her to stay on another month to help him until a nanny is hired. Sadie agrees, because the money offered is really good. But once Ethan requires that Sadie move in with him, she worries that she won't be able to resist the attraction between them.

Ethan is the CEO of his family's chocolate company, but he's being pressed by his younger brother, Gabe, to allow him to create and offer new chocolate flavors. Ethan is pretty set in his ways and rebuffs Gabe. In BOMBSHELL FOR THE BOSS, Gabe does something sneaky that may end up hurting the company and provides for a secondary plot. However, the main story is about the little baby and how it brings together Ethan and Sadie. For years, she has been his faithful assistant, but the moment she decides to serve her notice that she's quitting, he reacts in ways that he never thought he would. Is it because deep down he has come to rely on her for more than her work duties?

Once Sadie and Ethan are living under his roof, the sexual tension between them heats up. Suddenly, Ethan wants her. What he doesn't realize is that she has wanted him for years. Sadie is conflicted because she doesn't want to be another notch on his bedpost. But it's hard to ignore the inevitable, because the sexual attraction is there. Sadie will be gone at the end of the month, so why not have some sexy memories to remember their time together? But the more they make love, the harder it's going to be to not end up with a broken heart. Is there any chance Ethan can fall in love with Sadie?

The little baby is only part of the background in BOMBSHELL FOR THE BOSS by Maureen Child. This tale is about the angst the simmering romance brings to the relationship between Ethan and Sadie. Will she tell him before the end of the month that she loves him? How would he react? Grab a copy of BOMBSHELL FOR THE BOSS and enjoy this sensual tale.
