Heiress Lucinda Hollander decides to get engaged -- to a man who thrusts a rock on her finger and promptly disappears -- leaving Lucinda to take the rap for a crime she didn't commit. Lucinda goes on the lam, and even though she's never held -- or used -- a dust mop she goes "underground" as a housekeeper on a large estate. After all, she knows her way around big houses, and making floors sparkle is a whole lot better than making license plates. She quickly figures there's something suspicious going on in the servants' quarters -- especially with Max Hogan, "the car guy." He's strong, sexy -- and sure knows how to work with his hands. But he's more than a little silent about his past, which makes Lucinda wonder what he's up to ... and what will happen when her secret comes out. Still, she hopes they can have a future together ... If only she could get that darn ring off her finger.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Flaky heiress Lucinda Hollander, the heroine of Elizabeth Bevarly's rambling contemporary romance, The Ring on Her Finger, is forced to take charge of her life when she foolishly flees town to escape being arrested for a crime she didn't commit. With the help of her best friend, who conveniently runs a nationwide network of housekeepers, Lucy lands a job in Kentucky housekeeping for a wealthy family. There she meets sexy car maintenance man Max Hogan, a bad boy who's determined to live a boring life to punish himself for a past mistake. It doesn't take a fortune-teller to predict that Max and Lucy will change each other's lives, but it will take a determined reader to get past the first chapter. Bevarly's repetitious writing style bogs down the narrative, but those dogged enough to reach the end will be rewarded by Lucy's convincing transformation from ditzy daughter into capable wife.
