Allison was far too logical to believe in love at first sight, but there was nothing logical about the way she was responding to Spencer Raft. The dark-haired, blue-eyed mystery man had an assurance that Allison found positively maddening. And by the end of the evening, she couldn't help feeling that Spencer had been attracted to a carefully constructed illusion. She was certain that the handsome adventurer wouldn't give her a second look if he knew her as she really was.
But Spencer Raft was a man of many talents - and seeing below the surface of things was one of them. He sensed the flesh-and-blood woman beneath the elaborate charade, and after years of wandering the world in search of excitement, he knew he had finally found what he had been looking for. But first this incurable romantic had to convince an intractable skeptic that there was more to love than what she could study in a laboratory. And what better way than to propose a passionate experiment of his own? On board his yacht, Spencer and Allison would fulfill their wildest fantasies and deepest desires, but when their blissful idyll was over, would it all prove to be no more than a pleasant interlude - or the real thing?

I have downloaded "Envy", "Chill Factor", "The Alibi" from Sandra Brown. They all have a flavour of romance, but what sets them apart is the interesting storyline, and the suspense/thriller. This book, "Thursday's Child" was unadulterated romance. Very skimpy storyline, which stretched credibility.
If you like a romance of the Mills & Boon genre with descriptive sex, you will enjoy this book. If, like me, you were expecting an interesting story, with the romance as a minor plot line, you will be disappointed.
This one was disappointing. Characters just don't lift off the page. Should have believed a few of other reviewers. Didn't finish.
This was a very good listen, filled with romance and some very good chemistry between the main characters. The story was good and I would definitely recommend it.
