Dr. Jules Montgomery needed a hero for just one night. Dane Andrews, Boss to his men, had only one rule—never mess with any woman in his home town. All it took was a stranger’s arms wrapped around his neck, and her soft, warm lips whispering in his ear, "Help a girl out. Your name's Gary, and you're my boyfriend," for Boss to break his rules.
Boss quickly stepped into the role of hero and fantasy boyfriend, finding it impossible to say no to the mesmerizing beautiful redhead. He played Gary to her Red. For one night only, they belonged to each other, fulfilling each other’s fantasies.
Five years later, fate and a redheaded four-almost five-year-old named Becca reunite them once again. Their lives have taken different paths, although neither has forgotten the other. Jules returns to her home town to reconcile with her aunt, only to discover that her aunt is the housekeeper to Boss, a man with an occupation that goes against everything Jules holds dear. Boss is considered a hero by those who know him, although he now needs a service dog by the name of Lucky to keep him safe. Together, man and dog become the heroes that Jules needs once again to keep her and her family safe for more than one night.
Deborah Armstrong believes in love, romance, and happily ever after. Although she is still in search of that perfect cup of coffee, she finds time to enjoy her favourite past times: reading, music, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.
In Boss, the secondary character Bates piques readers' interest. They want to know more about the man who is always on the lookout for trouble. He's a man of impressive size, and one who can make his entrance without being noticed. He has his quirks and his secrets. His personality demands he have a book of his own. And he will.
Val waited for him, knowing how much he didn’t like anyone to break the rules. She was aware of what he was doing without having to watch him. Bates took his time, surveying the area, looking for any possible threat, before he let her exit the safety of the vehicle. She knew she was safe. Dane had assured Val when she first joined his staff that Bates had some quirks that she would find odd. He told her to go with the flow, and not let him get to her. That’s what Val did, and in return, she took liberty in teasing the man whenever she could.
