Kate Reynolds’s younger brother Jerry is caught stealing some money from the company he works for. His boss (Paul Caister) is considering firing him or prosecuting him and Jerry is supposed to meet Mr. Caister the next day to discuss what he plans to do to Jerry. Kate is worried about what this will do to her clergyman father, who has been having health problems and is told to avoid stress. So when Jerry gets ill when he is supposed to meet Mr. Caister Kate decides to go see Mr. Caister herself and persuade him not to prosecute Jerry. When Kate meets Paul Caister he makes a deal with her…he will not fire or prosecute her brother if she goes to Hong Kong with him for a month, posing as his fiancée. Kate agrees and they go to Hong Kong. While they are in Hong Kong they become attracted to each other, Kate falls for Paul, etc…

This was an OK read. I really liked the heroine Kate. She was nice, sweet, stood up at times to the hero Paul. She loved her family. Paul…he was sort of a cranky hero. He never really seemed to be happy or in a good mood. He wasn’t a terrible hero, but he always seemed impatient, irritable… I did like the Hong Kong setting.

An OK read from the 80’s. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0373024215, Paperback)

"After all, what have you got to lose?" Kate had been asked that question when she'd been trying to convince herself that she was doing the right thing. At least she knew she was helping her brother and father. But posing as Paul Caister's fiancee in Hong Kong was proving dangerous to her mental health.
