More About the Author


Jessica's earlier career was a haphazard one, including stints as foreign newsdesk secretary in London, cook on an Australian outback cattle station, TEFL teacher in Jakarta and interpreter on expedition in Cameroon. She first stumbled into writing as a way of funding a Ph.D. in Medieval Studies, and since then she has written 59 books for Harlequin Mills & Boon's Romance/RIVA series. A multiple finalist and past winner of both a RITA (Christmas Eve Marriage, Best Traditional Romance 2005) and the UK's coveted Romance Prize (now the RoNA Rose Award), Jessica was awarded the National Readers' Choice Award (Traditional category) for her 50th book, Last-Minute Proposal, in 2009 and again in 2010 for Cinderella's Wedding Wish.

Jessica lives in York, a historic city in the north of England, and also writes 'time slip' novels as Pamela Hartshorne.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
4.5 blue ribbons

Lucy West loves everything about her job at Wirrindago, an Australian cattle station where she's employed as a cook and housekeeper. She's even in love with one of the stockman. The arrival of her sister with the request that Lucy return to England to be at the bedside of a friend who's in a coma means leaving it all behind. Having to leave Australia for England is bad enough but having her antagonist Guy accompany her is almost more than she can take.

Guy Dangerfield is a successful English businessman who's visiting his cousin at Wirrindago. He takes great pleasure in annoying Lucy, including calling her Cinderella. He's perfectly aware that she fancies herself in love with Kevin but doesn't let that deter him. Guy senses that she's just drifting through life and accompanying her back to England presents him with the opportunity to get to know her better and issue a challenge that she accepts. After all, proving him wrong is a priority.

Lucy isn't at all happy about returning to England and aside from the time she'll spend at the hospital at Richard's bedside she doesn't know what she'll do, or even where she'll be staying. Guy points out that she's always counted on others to take care of the details and maybe it's time for her to take care of herself. Guy offers to let her stay at his place but Lucy doesn't want to impose. She gladly accepts Guy's challenge to find a `real' job and soon finds herself a job as a receptionist at Dangerfield & Dunn. She discovers that she actually enjoys the job and as an added benefit, she gets to see Guy every day when he's going to or from his office.

Their `friendship' evolves and takes on a romantic nature.

Appointment to the Altar by Jessica Hart
Harlequin Romance # 3987 - Nov2007
Bridegroom Boss series - Book #2

Lucy West has always lead a carefree bohemian lifestyle; flitting from one job to another and falling out of love as quickly as she fell in love. She loves her job as station cook on an outback ranch in Australia; that is until Guy Dangerfield arrives. Guy needed a break from his responsibilities as CEO of his family run bank, and the amicable breakup with his latest girl. A holiday with his cousin Hal was just the ticket. There was something about Hal's new cook that compelled him to tease and flirt with her. When it's urgent that Lucy return to England, Guy who is already booked for his return, arranges for Lucy to accompany him. When they arrive in London, Guy puts her up for a few days, and he challenges her to find a "real" job, not a silly temp job in a coffee shop, but a real grownup job. Lucy shocks him by landing a job in his bank. And the adventure begins.

After some prompting by Guy to take a good hard look at her life, Lucy realizes she's always had her older sister to look out for her and that she's never committed to anything. As her attraction for Guy becomes stronger, she wants to very much be a girl that he can take "seriously". Ms. Hart wrote this one strictly from Lucy's point of view, so it was difficult to read Guy. His ability to hide his feelings is part of the plot, but not one that worked well for me. I would have enjoyed this one much more, had I had a few glimpses of what he was thinking or feeling. This is an enjoyable book, with a few laugh-out-loud moments.
