Living with a wicked-mean father and a weak mother all her life, Marie Sweet is out of her comfort zone, working with people who show their soft sides, never condemn, and care about others. Especially the handsome hunk who’s now her boss and has the personality of a saint. It’s tough enough having to handle all this cheer, but now she has a runaway teenager depending on her. How can she explain goodness and kindness when she hasn’t personally experienced either?
Sean O’Malley’s never met anyone like his new employee before. Her prickles keep everyone in the restaurant at arms’ length.
Only a scared street-girl gets through, and he sees the real person behind the cool mask… the sweet girl who fills his nightly dreams and his wildly caring heart.
