Fortune's Valentine Bride - Marie Ferrarella (HSE #2167 - Feb 2012)

Series: Fortunes of Texas: Whirlwind Romance (Book 2)

Blake Fortune might not have been the easiest boss in the world, but Katie Wallace knew him better than anyone. Neighbors and longtime friends, she and Blake made a great team. Katie dreamed they'd someday be more....

But time was running out. Spurred on by last month's life-altering tornado, Blake had decided it was time for him to marry -- somebody else! With the rest of the Fortunes rooting her on, the spunky secretary had to find a way to change his mind fast. Could her plan really win over the Fortune of her dreams?

Another delightfully oblivious Fortune man.  Blake decided to go after the woman he broke up with after college, ignoring the fact they split because she was unfaithful.  He had kept an idealized vision of her in his mind.  So he decided to try to get her back by planning a marketing-like "campaign" to do so.  And he put his assistant Katie to work helping him - totally oblivious to the fact that she is in love with him.  Katie can't believe he is doing this, and tries to figure out a way to stop him.  With his sister Wendy's help, she offers herself up as a "test subject" and tries to teach him the way to win a woman's heart - hoping he'll fall for her.  There are so many places where he is awkward, confused, or downright terrified that it was so much fun to read.  I can't wait to see next month's story.
