Man in Charge – Friday Fiction

Man in Charge - cover

Man in Charge
Peake
1973

Another romance title from yesteryear, this time from the exciting world of retail! Our story opens with Juliet and her mother making a visit to a retail mogul. Evidently Juliet’s mother was formerly engaged to said mogul and now wants a favor of a job for Juliet.

Mogul and his bitchy wife, Mrs. Mogul are lording their wealth and position over Juliet and her mother. Naturally, Mr. and Mrs. Mogul have a son, Drew. Drew tells Juliet he is the real boss who does all the work while dad is just a figurehead. Drew wastes no time in telling Juliet that she will have to work for her salary and he will be watching her so she doesn’t slack off. Of course these two are bound for a romance since the love of a good woman cures jackassery all the time.

The cover also bothers me since our “hero” is slouching or he looks out of proportion. I see a long life with back trouble. How romantic.

  1. Is anyone else wondering if Juliet might be Mr Mogul’s illicit daughter or am I just getting too 21st century on this? The modern world has jaded me….
