Publisher's Summary

They were friends, neighbors, and occasional confidants. Certainly nothing more. Now Kingston Roper needs a favor from Elissa Dean, he needs her to get caught in his bed.

Elissa's sure she can help King out of an awkward situation caused by his rebounding sister-in-law's misplaced affection. After all, she might be the last American virgin, but she could definitely play the temptress, just to be neighborly, of course. But there's a problem with her good intentions. Because Elissa doesn't want to playact anymore. She wants the real thing, with King. But Elissa knows the kind of passion a man like King expects: brief, intense, and heartbreaking. Passion could lead to many things, but could they ever be the things they both want?

    "Good book, too bad it's abridged!"

    Diana Palmer is one of my favorite "love stories" authors --- a true romance writer. "Fit for a King" is a great book, but a very unsatisfactory abridged audio. And, because I prefer UNABRIDGED audiobooks I usually WON'T buy an unabridged. BUT, because Audible doesn't have any other audios by Diana Palmer I purchased the abridged. It's just not the same! UNABRIDGED audiobooks, please!

    "All the humor left out.!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Once again a Diana Palmer book is so radically abridged that almost all of the humor is left out. It also leaves the reader wondering what the heroine saw in the hero in the first place. Too bad, it's a cute book that was really quite enjoyable. The audiobooks of the old Kay Hooper romances are handled much better. Wonder what the audiobook publisher has against Ms. Palmer???

    Story
    "Can you get a backbone?"

    Not a good listen. The leading woman is a simpering wimp. Who does not stick up for her values. One kiss from her supposedly just friend and she turns into a uncontrolable slut. Yet she thinks he is in love with another woman. When she finally gets her man she slinks off and loses him, because she doesn't put in her two cents about what is going on around her.

    "Not fit at all"

    I'm starting to think that Diana Palmer's writing is really bad, judging by this book and another one available here titled Lord of the Desert. The writing is bad, the characters say everything that they are thinking (doesn't happen in real life, unrealistic dialogue) and the character's actions are immature. Perhaps reading the book would give a different impression, but I don't think so. The narration here is too forced..I prefer narrators who speak the lines with less personality (i.e. the danger here is making them sound whiney, childish) so I can make up my own mind about how they come across, esp. the lines of men. A woman who reads a man's lines trying to sound like a man only sounds silly and makes the hero sound goofy and unattractive. I'm wondering if audio books are for me or if I just haven't found the right ones.
