But he immediately broke up with her when he noticed that she's falling in love with him. Until Luc discovers the tantalising curves Agatha has been concealing. Luc resents the pressure he f This is the story of Agatha and Luc. This book unfortunately does not make the most of the plot line possibility. The daughter of the local vicar of a small parish in a small village in the middle of nowhere, trained in the vital skills of gardening and potting plants, was perilously out of step in his world of mergers, acquisitions and making money.
Luc gave her a job because his mother asked him to. Luc had been summoned home to face a grief-stricken mother and a house about to go under the hammer to pay off the creditors who had been baying like wolves at the door. Luc was another story though. Looking at Luc Laughton always resulted in a thumping heart, a racing pulse and an inconvenient, prickly feeling all over her body. He was irritated with her but soon finds her alluring and did everything to seduce her and starts an affair with her.
Luc gave Agatha a job after being asked to by his mother, after she was helped by Agatha's parents when Luc's father died leaving the family with financial problems. I actually really like the book which surprised me. Or maybe because I wasn't able to feel the hero's sincerity and I don't find his declaration of love romantic. They grew up in the same village, he is the son of the village's richest family and she is the daughter of the local vicar and his wife. He was irritated with her but soon finds her alluring and did everything to seduce her and starts an affair with her. All the girls in the village had had a crush on him, not that he had ever paid any of them a blind bit of notice.
He soon finds out that Agatha is in fact very alluring and starts an affair with her. I understand that he has trust issues but I never got how he could not express love. He was the rich kid who lived in the mansion on the hill. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed it. Agatha is a traditional country girl, preferring to spend time outdoors, and struggles with the job and fast paced life in London. He had attended a top boarding school which had honed his razor-sharp intellect and invested him with the kind of cool self-assurance that Agatha had found both scary and weirdly compelling.
Luc gave Agatha a job after being asked to by his mother, after she was helped by Agatha's parents when Luc's father died leaving the family with financial problems. Although they got their happy ending I still think that there's something missing. It taught us how to be patient. A 22-year-old heroine to high school have school, so a little cel atmosphere. And that dreams do come true.
Nevertheless, I still enjoyed it. I started to like Agatha's character the moment she refused. She has been writi Cathy Williams was born in the island of Trinidad, the West Indies. Her parents had been an invaluable rock to his mother when she had most needed one, and thanks to them he had had the freedom to instigate the meteoric rise which, less than four years later, would see his mother restored to the house that was rightfully hers. Of course she had heard the telephone ring. Without realizing it, give a variety of reasons heroine only come at stake laughs. She's your typical country girl and because of that she's having a hard time living in London.
Only later Agatha tells him she is pregnant but refuses his marriage proposal after the way he treated her. Agatha Havers feels totally out of her depth working for Luc Loughton. Agatha's character just seemed a bit silly. I found the characters frustrating, Luc was patronising practically all the time to Agatha, he was also horribly bossy to her as well as completely contradicting, e. But Agatha got pregnant and refused Luc's marriage proposal after the way he disposed and treated her. She's at the top of her boss's agenda. But he immediately broke up with her when he noticed that she's falling in love with him.
I'm not saying this is a bad book, it's not and is a quick and enjoyable read, but it just didn't, for me, have that Je ne sais quoi. Six years ago his father had died unexpectedly, leaving behind him a financial train-wreck brought about by gross mismanagement of his company by the person he had most trusted. Hiding behind her shapeless cardigans, she is invisible to her boss. I started to like Agatha's character the moment she refused. As for Luc, I'd say that he's not my favorite kind of hero. It would be pretty there if the hero and heroine is a little outdated. She might get bits and pieces of his eagle-eyed attention, but Helen received the full brunt of it, because Luc was nothing if not an exacting task-master.
