Alex Trahern has longed for one thing in his life for two years. He wants revenge on John Harrison, the man he blames for his father’s death. To Alex’s way of thinking, his father died because John Harrison stole a patent that Alex’s father deserved. Alex has been consumed with bringing down Hypertron since his father’s death and now, revenge is finally in his grasp. Unfortunately, there is one tiny glitch and that is Isabel Harrison, John’s daughter, and the woman Alex has had a hidden attraction to for two years.

When Alex Trahern comes storming into Isabel Harrison’s office, she’s prepared to deal with another irate employer. As a headhunter, or a career guidance specialist in Isabel’s terms, it is Isabel’s job to place employees in better employment opportunities. She had no idea that by contacting one of Alex’s employees she would be pulling the dragon’s tail.

Initially, Alex only wants to discover who wants to hire away his employee, but after he spends an evening with Isabel, he realizes what he really wants is to make love with her, to spend time with her, and to show her that he’s the perfect guy for her. When Alex discovers Isabel’s list of requirements for choosing a husband, he can’t help but think that he’d be the perfect candidate. But can he convince her? Can he show her that the passion that smolders between them won’t be extinguished easily and that marriage is the only solution?

Of course, Alex has another problem on his hands. Isabel doesn’t know about his plans for Hypertron. What will happen to their fragile union when she does find out? You’ll have to read Ms. Monroe’s Come Up and See Me Sometime to find out!

This book is another winner from Lucy Monroe. The passion and desire between Alex and Isabel is truly the glue that holds this book together, as their strong personalities clash and battle while they both try to better understand their feelings. Alex’s revenge plot is an interesting plot device, well used and somewhat clichéd, but don’t worry readers, Ms. Monroe puts her own spin on it, ensuring all readers are in for a good time.

All in all, Come Up and See Me Sometime is destined for a place on your keeper shelf, showing once again how Ms. Monroe’s colorful characters, intriguing stories, and passionate and romantic plots are quickly becoming reader favorites.
