Lost In Love By Bestselling Author Kate Perry
An Adult Contemporary Romance
Released February 12, 2014
Portia Summerhill feels like a loser.
Thirty-something, jobless, and living at home… How could she not? Next to her accomplished sisters, Portia's achievements—or lack thereof—are that much more noticeable.
The one thing Portia can claim is expert knowledge on antiques and her ancestry, and in a moment of serendipity, the perfect job lands in her lap: curator at the Museum of British Peerage. There's one caveat: the museum won't hire her unless she brings the family jewels with her. Or, more specifically, the infamous Summerhill tiara.
Except a cowboy hotelier stands between her and her tiara. Jackson Waite needs help getting his newest posh hotel launched and, luckily for Portia, he's willing to make a trade. If she helps him meet the deadline for his new resort, he'll give her the tiara. Only, the more time she spends with Jackson, the more Portia wonders if she wants the tiara or the man keeping it from her.
So, the description of the book just mentions about Portia and Jackson but forgets to mention about Meredith (Jack's ex Fiance) and Quinn (Jack's friend and coworker). When I was first reading this book and realized that there was more then Jack and Portia's POV it lost me a bit. This has two story lines interwoven into one.
Portia doesn't have much skills but she knows her families history and wants to be able to get a job in Museum. Problem is the director of the place won't consider her request unless she hands over her families heirloom tiara as a part of the museum. In order for her to get it she must offer her services to Jack so she can get the tiara and she can work for him until she gets it. Little did they know they would fall for one another.
Meredith has a secret she couldn't tell Jack and she refuses to live her life with a man she doesnt love. Now she had hopes for the future and makes a bucket list. When Quinn walks into her office and takes a peek at the list he wants to help her especially to help her out with that last thing on the list (Want to know what it was? Read the book!)
I thought the book was interesting, although for me it dragged a bit. I wished there was more drama I guess, but that's OK. I think I'm getting used too having books over do it with the drama. When I was reading this book it I liked how it was two story lines that meshed together without being too much. I liked that I got the point of views of all four characters even if i was a bit confused at first. Overall I did enjoy this book. 4 of 5 Stars!
Kate has tangoed at midnight with a man in blue furry chaps, dueled with flaming swords in the desert, and strutted on bar tops across the world and back. She’s been kissed under the Eiffel Tower, had her butt pinched in Florence, and been serenaded in New Orleans. But she found Happy Ever After in San Francisco with her Magic Man.
Kate's the bestselling author of the Laurel Heights Novels, as well as the Pillow Talk and Guardians of Destiny series. She's been translated into several languages and is quite proud to say she's big in Slovenia. All her books are about strong, independent women who just want love.
Most days, you can find Kate in her favorite café, working on her latest novel. Sometimes she's wearing a tutu. She may or may not have a jeweled dagger strapped to her thigh...
