A woman bodyguard named, Bernie (Bernadette,) is attracted to and also repelled by the multimillionaire, Jeremy Bridges, that she guards daily. When she is able to foil a burglary at Jeremy's home after he brings home, yet another, buxom blonde, her emotions boil over. The two have a tumultuous encounter that ends up changing both their lives forever. It is not a fairytale situation though. Jeremy and Bernie both value their freedom. Bernie has responsibilities that no one is aware of and just can't see Jeremy as her 'forever' love.This book takes us from the glamorous Texas society scene to down to life living by the working middle classes. We go from Champagne to water.The love Bernie fosters upon her mother had me in tears at times. I did enjoy this romance and will look for this author again. A good girl can be bad for one night...Bernadette Hogan doesn't make mistakes. Not when it comes to caring for her mother, and not at her job protecting Texas's most eligible--and infuriating--bachelor. Maybe that's why she's overcome with guilt after one tiny indiscretion: a passionate fling with her boss that's left her confused, intrigued...and pregnant.but can a bad boy be good for a lifetime?To self-made millionaire Jeremy Bridges, women are like fine wine: if held for too long, they sour. But one wild night with Bernadette changed all that. She makes him laugh, she makes him think, and soon she's going to make him a father. For the first time, Jeremy wants to be a one-woman man. So how can he convince the fiercely independent Bernadette he's ready to change from partying playboy to dependable dad--and become the loving husband she deserves?___________________________________________________________________This book was too much of a drag, and I usual keep reading to give the book a chance, but I don't know why I stopped reading. This book was good from the beginning, and the scenes were alright. The thing is this book kinda bore me before I got to the good parts. That needs working on..Not sure if I'm going to finish the book.bernie has been Jeremy's bodyguard for two years...two long, long years of hell. Then the day comes where she gets pissed off because of him, and all that leads to angry sex with him! and guess what?she's pregnant! Great, just when everything was going downhill, fate decides to drop the whole bomb on her. Shes having twins, and Jeremy doesn't plan to go away after he found out she's pregnant. And on top of that guess who brought Bernie's apartment area? Jeremy, and he plans on making her pay for all the damages that she has made on him.This book seemed to drag alot, and the story plot was ok, but could have been better. I wished the main character of this book was pretty, because when people are reading a book, they want everything to be perfect, thus the fantasies. But I guess I won't be getting any of that either.#161

Thoroughly enjoyable. A light, fun romance novel. The best kind! Good story and great characters.

The female bodyguard and the millionaire, but *not* the same-old romantic suspense plot. Thumbs up.
