Being butler to a widower and single father is a dream job in more ways than one for Charlotte “Charlie” Emerson. She helps keep businessman Ethan Archer’s household running without a hitch and enjoys every minute she has with his six-year-old son, Wells. But as time passes, the situation feels alarmingly intimate and when her heart starts beating faster each time Ethan steps through the door, Charlie must exert rigid control over her feelings.
With her secret, falling in love would be all kinds of bad…
Ethan Archer values the woman who keeps his life in order and cares so much for his motherless boy. He and Charlie act in harmony with each other and it’s not hard to picture them as a little family…in fact, it’s so easy, one reckless night he proposes a marriage of convenience.
What will he do if Charlie says yes? And worse, what if she tells him no?

Customer ReviewsSee All
I felt this was a great read, totally enjoyable with a nice amount of detail pulling you in. I really liked the storyline and thought it had good flow overall. Also really liked that this was a different spin, than I had ever read before and was a original storyline. The ending was endearing though I did think the major conflict, “The Secret” was over rather easily. This is the first story that I have read by Christie Ridgway and I look forward to reading more by this author.
When Christie Ridgeway isn't self published, she's one of my favorites. When she is, I find myself scanning the pages.
Loved The Secret
I so enjoyed this next installment of Christie Ridgway's Billionaire Beach series. I had already fallen for these three best friends who were female butlers. They fell in love with their employers. All except Charlotte. She fell in love with her employer's child. But in the secret we find much more out about reserved Charlotte, or Charlie as she preferred to be called. Is she falling for her boss? And can they get beyond her secret? You will definitely want to read this book!
