Myra Burke has lost her faith in men and love. When her ex-fiancé cleans out their bank account she needs a decent job to provide for her four year old daughter and she needs it yesterday.

Holt Winthrop has money, intelligence, and charm. He also has love to give but that isn’t an option anymore. Caught in a suicide bombing, he’s scarred inside and out. No one would want what he’s become.

Against his better judgment, his matchmaking friends convince Holt to hire Myra as his personal assistant. When he finds out she’s down on her luck he simply can’t say no despite his instant attraction to the curvaceous redhead.

Myra thinks her new boss is not only wonderful but sexy as hell. If she isn’t careful she could find herself head over heels for a man like him. Good thing she’s knows better. Billionaires don’t fall in love with their assistants.

Or do they? As each day passes their mutual attraction turns into a fiery passion that neither can ignore or deny. They’ll need all the courage they can find to take a chance on love…just one more time.

Happily married friends want you to experience their type of happy, even if it isn’t what you want.  And Holt is learning this lesson when he is “conned” into hiring Myra.  Myra just needs a job with flexible hours; she has learned a harsh lesson about love and has no desire to repeat the lesson.  But Holt is different, even as he struggles to hide his soft center with his grumpy personality.  Holt thinks that but for his money he has nothing to offer a woman.  Myra begs to differ but will she have the courage to fight for Holt?  In Emeralds, Rubies and Camouflage by Olivia Jaymes, Myra gets her opportunity to find out.  I thought Ms. Jaymes gave us a well written story full of emotional growth for both Myra and Holt.  I loved not only the growing relationship between Holt and Myra but also the connections they had with the secondary characters.  I read this series out of order but did not find that to hinder my enjoyment in anyway, in fact it just made me want to go back to the stories missed.  In the fourth story of Ms. Jaymes’Military Mogulseries, you will find characters with emotional depth as they fight for love.  The secondary characters added to our understanding of Holt and Myra while also providing levity.  I know that I will enjoy reading this story again and again.
