A Countess for Christmas Emma Carmichael is shocked when she sees who she's waitressing for at a lavish party - Jack Westwood, the new Earl of Richmond. Her new life comes crashing down when Jack announces to the world that they're married! Jack has never forgotten his first love despite the tragedy that tore them apart. When the paparazzi cameras intrude he proposes they live as man and wife until the fuss dies down. Emma feels like Cinderella, masquerading as his Countess...only behind closed doors, their marriage feels tantalisingly real...Ms Bravo and the Boss On paper, this should have been the perfect arrangement. Elise Bravo needed a job, desperately. And soldier-turned-thriller-writer Jed Walsh burned through (almost literally it turned out) assistants like hellfire through brimstone. Turned out he had some...unusual work habits to go along with his giant talent and ego. He threw knives to relax. He cleaned his guns as he acted out scenes. And more than anything, he hated cats...Enter Elise, crack typist, master plotter, and perfect for the live-in job in every way but one...two if you count Mr. Wiggles, her furry companion.
For though Jed had sworn he would never get "involved" with a woman who worked for him, it took only a day or two with the perfectly professional, pencil skirt-wearing Bravo beauty to realize that he needed to keep Elise-in his bed, in his house, and in his life. And the first step was building Mr. Wiggles a catio-because maybe there was more than one way for Jed to make Elise his?
