    The beautiful young widow of the president of the United States thought she was free of the White House, but circumstances have forced her back into the role of First Lady. She's made up her mind to escape, if only for a few days, so she can live the life of an ordinary person. An entire nation is searching for her, but the First Lady is in the last place anyone would think to look: in the company of a seductive stranger whose charm and good looks are awakening the forgotten woman within.

    Cute, funny story with very likable characters. Just what you'd expect from vintage SEP! And nobody narrates like Anna Fields. She was truly a master at her craft.

    There is nothing Aleron Pitre can’t steal, nobody he can’t con and no situation he can’t slip out of until he’s sent to the prison planet Tantoret, where every sentence is death. If the prisoners don’t kill each other, they’ll die slowly and painfully from mining the poisonous drug chojal. Yet Aleron still hopes that he can escape.

    Surprisingly good romance combined with a pretty action-packed story. Really good narration as well.

    By edict of the king, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kincaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie the feisty youngest daughter of Baron Jamison. Alec ached to touch her, to tame her, to possess her forever. But Jamie vowed never to surrender to this highland barbarian. Though his kisses fired her blood, shadowed secrets from Alec's past threatened Jamie's happiness. She brazenly resisted him - until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills.

    "One of the best!"
    Overall

    This was one of the best historical romance novels I've read in a while. I was so surprised it was originally written back in 1989. Anyway, the story is well-developed and the characters are great! There is plenty of humor and an absorbing storyline that makes you feel emotionally vested in each of the characters. Even the annoying characters draw you in. The leading characters have great chemistry, and there is just enough romance to move you without making you feel like you need a shower or a cigarette afterward. This would be a great start to a series, and I hope I can find more Julie Garwood in this genre!

    By the way, the narrator is top notch!

    Tucker McCade has known violence his whole life: orphaned in a massacre, abused as a "half-breed" child, trained as a ruthless Texas Ranger, he's learned the hard way that might makes right. So even he is shocked when he falls for Sally Mae, a Quaker nurse. Unable to resist Tucker's charm, character and chiseled body, she throws herself into their torrid affair, indulging every one of her wildest sexual fantasies.

    Calleen says: "Excellent Story"
    "Boring and Pointless"
    Overall

    After waiting so long for this next installment in the series, it is heartbreaking to be given a novel that is such a disappointment. Sallie Mae's character was ridiculous in constantly using her religious convictions as a shield against accepting Tucker for who he was when she was more than willing to overlook those convictions to have hot, wild monkey sex with the man at every possible occasion. How can you take someone like that seriously? Another irritant was the way Sallie Mae spoke. Perhaps I am just being trivial, but I found all of her "thee's" and "thy's" to be more than a little annoying. And to me, the chemistry between the two of them just seemed off -- nothing like the heat that existed between Caine and Desi. Then there was the problem of the narrator, who couldn't simulate a convincing male voice to save her life.

    My advice is to not waste a perfectly good credit on this one. Save it and spend it wisely elsewhere.

    Arranged marriages seldom happen in modern America, so Daisy Devreaux hates her father's ultimatum: marry the humorless man he has picked for her, or go to jail. It's not much of a deal for Alex Markov, the prospective groom, either. He's got no time to indulge an uptown girl. So Alex puts Daisy to work in his traveling circus, expecting the harsh realities will break her. Instead, he finds she's got heart enough for both of them.

    Loy says: "classic Susan Phillips"
    "SEP Rocks!"
    Overall

    This is obviously one of SEP's earlier works, but it is everything you love about her books: charming, funny, well-developed and HOT! If you are a SEP fan, you will SO not be disappointed with this book! Thanks, Audible, for adding it to your library!

    She was a maddening combination of mystery and innocence. But Liz was the key to finding his brother's killer, so cynical Jonas Sharpe had to stick close...too close for comfort.

    LeftyMom says: "Very Good"
    "Nothing special...."
    Overall

    This is your standard romance; nothing particularly exciting or remarkable. Actually, it was pretty predictable, but I think that was common for the time period in which this was written. Unless you are a die hard Nora Roberts fan in desperate need of something to fill a few hours, I wouldn't waste the money on this one.
