Review – ‘Leather and Lace’ by Maggie Shayne


Blurb for Leather and Lace

Though she's the model of modesty, a young entrepreneur is reluctantly transformed into a runway model for her burgeoning lingerie business-so much so that her own roguish boss doesn't even recognize her! And she's about show him that flowers and candy just can't compare to "Leather and Lace." 

Review 

This review is for 'Leather and Lace' by Maggie Shayne. 
The story is part of the Sinful anthology that came out several years ago but I only have this one individual story on my Kindle. 
I absolutely loved it!
Martha Jane lost her secretary job a month ago. Her sexy boss, Richard, fired her to hire a blonde bimbo, his supposed girlfriend, and he never knew plain Martha Jane was in love with him. Martha Jane and her best friend Kayla has started a lingerie line and their model falls sick on the night of their first ever fashion show so prim and proper Martha Jane has to fill in the stilettos with a mask to boot!
This is a hilarious, heart-warming story about secret love, old hurts and mystery on Valentine’s Day. Richard and Martha Jane’s relationship starts fast but believable. Though they’ve know each other for about a year, he pretends to not know who the mystery woman is behind the sexy mask and she won’t tell him. I love their banter, the way she gets her revenge on Richard for him ignoring her when she worked for him and for him showing off all his girlfriends in front of her. He gets his comeuppance and the book shows that everyone can change.
