She doesn't want a white knight. Good thing he isn't one.
Jameson Quinn was on top of the world.
Then his brother and sister in law died, leaving behind his niece.
His niece that he is now the guardian of.
Jameson doesn't know the first thing about raising a kid and he's busy training for the championship fight so he does what anyone would do and hires a nanny.
He just doesn't expect the nanny to look like Phoenix Joy.
Now he's fighting out of the ring too, trying to tame his attraction to the feisty redhead.
He doesn't want to mess anything up for his niece. He knows that the kid loves Phoenix.
The only problem is the that Jameson is pretty sure that he loves her too.
I have really enjoyed Shaw Hart before and am sure to again. Unfortunately, this latest story was a bit lackluster for me. It has a really intense title: Fighting Back From Hell. I'm not really sure where that comes from because the actual story doesn't really reflect it at all. Certainly, the main characters have suffered loss, but I don't think their journey towards each other was all that harrowing. And there is nothing really keeping them apart except for their own worries. The main fighter, Jameson, grew up in the home of two doctors and they had a cook growing up. Certainly he might have suffered some emotional pangs but he didn't have a bad upbringing. And I am certainly not downplaying the loss of his brother, but...I think I was expecting a bigger thing to be holding him back and keeping him from happiness.
The entire story was very nice and angst free but just didn't do it for me. And I'm sorry to say - the idea of two virgin main characters was pretty unbelievable for me.
