Lady In Black Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Lady In Black

Reid Donovan, a wealthy businessman, is worried about reports of threats to his grandfather's safety. Though guarded by the best security experts, his grandfather pulled a very surprising stunt—he hired a butler, a female butler, trained not only in protocol but also in security and surveillance.   Reid did not think this was a good idea, doubting that a female with curves he's been itching to touch could effectively defend his grandfather. When initial reports show that the threat is closer to home than he expected, Reid suspects she has a hand in it.

Margaret Guarneri, a widow and single parent for years, yearns to experience once more the feeling of being in love, and be loved, by someone. However, no matter how alluring Reid's call to love, she is a butler first, and butlers never associate with the boss' grandson.
Readers of this book will easily discover that this is an early work. The first few chapters are a bit slow, but afterwards the plot livens up with witty dialogue and smoldering sensuality. The best part of the book is the last chapters where even though the threat has past, the rest of the story takes on an exciting and funny turn for the protagonists. This early work showcase Ms. Dodd's writing talent and will make readers yearn to read more of her books.
