Hesitant Husband is the 17th romance novel by American author, Jackie Merritt. Mitch Conover is happy in his job at Armstrong Paving and Asphalt, determined to work his way up in the company on his merits. Then he meets Kimberley Armstrong, the boss’s daughter: the attraction is immediate, on both sides. But while Kim, with her own interior design company, is single-minded about being with him, Mitch is hesitant: he won’t tolerate even a hint of favouritism in his job, and is sure her father’s impartiality will disappear if their relationship is made public. But deception does not sit well with either of them. A sexy romance with strong characters, that touches on trust, honesty and pride. Enjoyable.
