Peek Inside Winning the Boss's Heart

Mason has 12 weeks to flip something old into something new, and then he’s getting the hell out of New Zealand. Not even the feisty, Billie—will deter him. There’s no denying she makes him feel alive more than he has in years...Billie only wants to save enough money for college. That’s why she’s agreed to work for hard ass Mason—a man who has every intention of destroying through “modernization” the town’s most cherished historical home. But before she can say see ya, she realizes she’s contractually bound for 84 days. Working with male perfection every day should be easy—as long as they can stick to a hands-off policy that gets harder every day..

Mason Christian has twelve weeks to flip something old into something new for his Japanese client, and then he’s getting the hell out of Footsteps Bay, New Zealand. Not even his temporary cook and secretary—the feisty, luscious Billie McLeod—will deter him. There’s no denying she makes him feel alive. More alive than he’s felt in three years…

Billie has one dream: save enough money to go to college. That’s why she’s agreed to work for hard ass, all-business-no-pleasure Mason Christian—a man who has every intention of destroying through “modernization” the town’s most cherished historical home. But before she can say see ya, she realizes she’s signed the dotted line and is contractually bound for eighty-four days. Working with male perfection every day is awesome with a capital A—as long as they can stick to a hands-off policy that gets harder every day…



In my many, many years in the romance community, every once in a while you stumble upon an author who just has IT. I believe Hayson Manning is such an author. For me to give a five star review to a contemporary romance is unheard of and should surprise you enough to find out why I am such a big fan. Read this book and fall in love. Sebella Blue. Amazon
It will grab your heart strings and not let go to the end! I encourage you to pick up a copy, curl up on the couch and be prepared to become completely absorbed in a novel! April - My Book Addiction Reviews.
5 wonderful stars!! Winning the Boss's Heart was a wonderful story from start to finish. I oohhed and aahhed and swooned when I read it Geri's - EverAfterRomance
I don't normally write reviews as I am a reader not a writer BUT this story was well worth praise, as I just LOVED it. I loved the humor all the way through & the story was just so sweet & romantic without being unbelievable or cheesy. Brilliant writing!!! Highly recommend. G. Baker. Amazon

Yeah, he may be one hot tamale on the outside, but she bet old Satan himself was sitting in his heart playing Solitaire.

I must say this was a very nice find, thank you very much, Geri for your review this morning. Was lucky enough to visit Haworth over the Easter, where the Brontes lived. Saw the “ruins” of Wuthering Heights, after a long trek over the moors. Love that story.

Mason is a torturned soul.

This is the second time I've read this book, and loved it the second time as much as the first time I read it.

I adored this book. I'm a big fan of Hayson Manning's humor and this book was full of laugh out loud moments from the feisty heroine, Billie. I loved her.

I'll admit, I didn't expect to enjoy this book as much as I did and I'm so happy for this surprise. This was exactly what I needed because I've been going through quite a wicked reading slump lately. This book has romance, with a steady, realistic, and engaging pace. It also has a bit of drama; a... ...more

A few months ago I got a chance to read Hayson's debut book Wife in Name Only, I must confess that I thought it was pretty darn good. Now Hayson Manning brings her new book Winning the Boss's Heart. Just like her first book, she still brings the emotional tug, but adds a... ...more

I need to start by saying that I LOVED Billie. She was so sure of herself and upbeat, even when things were looking down.

About the author

Hayson Manning

I love Princess Bride, Young and the Restless, Days of our Lives – the drama is deliciously addictive. Big Bang Theory but will take Wolowitz over Cooper. Star Trek not Star Wars. Undercover Boss, Secret Millionaire – any story that shows the little guy making it. I follow the Buffalo Bills like a religion. I am spellbound by showjumping and equestrian eventing. I love curling up and reading all books – no genre is off-topic. I like ironing, I hate peas, love donkeys, I play a killer game of Scrabble. I will often be heading towards the fridge for another Diet Coke. I eat nothing with legs and believe wine goes with everything, oh and I’m an expert at finding new and inventive ways to avoid exercise. I live in the sparkly beach side suburb of Redondo Beach in California with my infuriating shoe-dropping husband and my two boys who speak in mystifying grunts.
