This HaBO request is from Robin, who is looking for this contemporary romance:
This has been driving me crazy. It’s an older book, maybe a series book.
It’s about a woman who grew up with an abusive father. Now she owns a woman run advertising company and works mostly with women clients. A man hires the firm and wants her to handle an account. Then he wants to date her. He is persistent until he breaks through and begins to discover the past events that affect her.
I want to say it’s old Barbara Delinsky or Sandra Brown.
Ring any bells?
