I've read all of SEP's books several times. Listening is even more fun. I was laughing out loud as I listened, and, at times, crying.
SEP can't be beat for stories that move your emotions.
Love this Regency plot set in modern USA. Orphan Lady Emma travels to Texas to lose her virgnity, avoid the earl's suit, and save St. Gert's girls school. Indolent, wealthy rake refuses to explain himself despite others' misperceptions, creating conflict - Emma believes him to be a gigolo, and to have abandoned his child (really his brother); PGA and public (yes, it's a modern twist) believe he's punched the helpless without cause, tho that's not true. They fall in love and despite Emma's crazy plots manage to find happily ever after. Several laugh out loud moments when Emma's plots and Kenny's frustrations collide.
What a wonderful and complex cast of characters! With this book, you don't just get a heroine who dance around their attraction for one another for several hours, you get a whole town full of interesting and complex people who you care about, root for and despise. I loved the main characters but by the end I was wishing that Dex and Tori in particular had their own book!
Hilarious, smart and sexy. I recently discovered Susan Elizabeth Phillips and she is already one of my favorite authors. Her writing is laugh-out-loud hilarious, clever and steamy in a humorous just-right way...not too sappy, sugary. The narrartor, Anna Fields, aka Kate Fleming, does such a good job on this and other SEP books. Her voices and accents reflect the author's humor perfectly and in fact, she adds to the appeal of these audiobooks. Makes my hour working out fly by.
The story was pretty good but it was Anna who slam dunked it. Since I've only begun reading Ms. Phillips's books the last few years, I have not gotten to the stories read by other narrators. I miss her already....
All in all it was a good story with likable characters. SEP's writing is always very vivid and although sometimes predictable, it's never disappointing.
One of my favorites by this author. The romance and the characters make this book one of ms Phillips best. Narrator as always, was nearly perfect.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Anna Fields are great together.
Your books make laugh & cry. Good reads from beginning to end. The characters and voices make the audibles so enjoyable.
