ROMANTIC TIMES BOOK REVIEW MAGAZINE:

4 Stars -- Though he fights it, Sam finds himself falling for the feisty widow with the big heart in Bunking Down with the Boss (4), Charlene Sands' emotional and enriching tale of redemption.

CATAROMANCE 4 1/2 Stars -Bunking Down with the Boss is one of those stories that will tug at your emotions. Charlene Sands shows us that taking a chance on love is always difficult. Both Caroline and Sam are dealing with issues that make taking that chance even more difficult. Loveable and realistic characters, you can't help but root for them to be true to their hearts and take that chance. An engaging tale, Bunking Down with the Boss proves that Charlene Sands is a gifted storyteller. I highly recommend the enjoyable Bunking Down with the Boss ... Debby Guyette

WRITER'S UNLIMITED -- I was drawn into the story and found I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see if these two people will find love at the end of the story. Pick up a copy of Bunking Down with the Boss and see how love can find a way ... Helen Silfer

BUNKING DOWN WITH THE BOSS - has also been selected for the Eharlequin EBOOK program, so starting in August it will be available in downloadable form!
