    Of all the dukes in England, Jered Marcus Benton, the Duke of Bradford, was the wealthiest, most handsome — and most arrogant. And of all London’s ladies, he wanted the tender obedience of only one — Caroline Richmond. She was a ravishing beauty from Boston, with a mysterious past and a fiery spirit. Drawn to the powerful duke, undeterred by his presumptuous airs, Caroline was determined to win his lasting love.

    I LOVE Julie Garwood and wish more of her books were available. But this one did not live up to standards. Story was slow and characters were not as compelling. Not crazy about the narrator either.

    Lady Rebecca Marshall fulfills her mother's fondest wish when she becomes a maid of honor at the court of Queen Victoria. Having been disappointed two years ago when the Duke of Norford's heir Raphael Locke married another woman, Rebecca's mother sees this court appointment as a golden opportunity for Rebecca.

    Story

    I love this narrator and this genre so I thought I would give this book a try. Never read any of this authors books before. I just couldnt get into this one. I couldn't care about the characters because I didn't like them. Rebecca was pretty blah and the Rouge (I can't even remember his name he was so disappointing) was just a jerk. He has some wit but he wasn't all that likeable. Not very romantic.

    Molly Somerville knows she has a reputation for trouble. She did give away her $15-million inheritance, but, hey, nobody's perfect. Yes, Molly's happy about almost everything...except her long-term crush on the daredevil quarterback for the Chicago Stars. That awful, gorgeous Kevin Tucker, a man who can't even remember her name! One night, Molly's penchant for running into trouble runs her right into Kevin himself, turning her world upside down.

    Donna A says: "5 stars"
    "Great Writing and Sweet Fun"
    Overall

    I loved this book. The characters were great and the story funny and touching. I laughed out loud several times. The softball scene is great writing and well done in narration. Anna Fields really makes these characters come to life. SEP makes skillful use of the childrens book aspect of the main character to give the writing a creative punch- especially in the epilogue.
    If you liked Nobody's Baby But Mine and Natural Born Charmer than you will surely like this witty romance.

    It's Dan Calebow's worst nightmare: Phoebe Somerville, a trendy New York knockout, inherits the Chicago Stars, the football team he coaches. And she wants to help him run it. Phoebe's sure he needs her. He's a sexist good-ol'-boy jock with a one-track mind. Surely she can straighten him out.

    bluebelle says: "Classic Susan Elizabeth Philips"
    "A wonderful surprise!"
    Overall

    This is the first book by this author that I have read and have been wondering how I missed her for so long. Have devoured all of her books since.
    This book surprised me from the first line... "Phoebe Sommerville outraged everyone by bringing a French poodle and a Hungarian lover to her father's funeral." And it kept surpirsing me... unexpecected characters, humor, sweetness. While the ending was outrageous it fit the characters perfectly.
