Review by wyvernfriend
Harry Rutledge is a man with a mission. He owns a hotel, among other things, and he is determined that it will be the best hotel. However he is completely absorbed by his work, leaving very little room for anything else until a ferret brings Poppy Hathaway into his life. He proceeds to win her the same way he conducts business, he doesn't know how to deal with people in any other way. It's up to Poppy to teach him how life works and he finds that above all else he wants to please Poppy.There's misunderstandings and complications a-plenty in this one and I did enjoy the story and the characters. Poppy's resentment at his treatment of her was completely understandable and his confusion at having to deal with emotion stuff was well drawn and understandable as his back-story became more known. A pair of characters I would like to see again.
