Kiss an Angel Audiobook

Kiss an Angel

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.

    "different story"

    Unusual subject circus life, I enjoyed the characters and the animals. Narration by Anna fields makes all the difference when I choose a book. Thanks to her and the always enjoyable writing of this author my days are brighter.

    Story
    "An emotional read which is kind of unexpected from SEP"

    I feel this book is still as good as Phillips other books but it isn't lighthearted or even really funny like the other ones. Alex is definitely an antihero and this book seems to explore a love between two people that isn't sunshine and rainbows. In fact, I expect Alex and Daisy to have some rough patches in their marriage because of the nature of Alex's character. Now that I've listened threw the book a second time I can see that Daisy WANTS to be with a challenging man like Alex. When at first I agreed with many of the other reviewers view about Alex being borderline abusive. Now I see that If she didn't love the dark sides of his character she wouldn't constantly relate him to the wild tiger she has a special bond with. I guess there is a HEA for everyone..even Alex who I still don't like.

    "Very different setting. very sweet."

    Interesting and well written, of course. It was also very sweet. I've learned not to expect anything less from SEP.

    Story
    "Surprised to like this circus."

    This was a chance credit. I read the summary and was unimpressed, but then the reviews made me curious. Yes, the plot is totally unfathomable for today, but there's something in the personalities and range of characters that get you hooked. The circus theme and the whole Russian czar drama just fades to the background and you get a cute romance.

    "Most unbelievable story."
    Would you try another book from Susan Elizabeth Phillips and/or Anna Fields?

    This book portrays women in the subservient role of slave and master. A silly, unbelievable plot which portrays this woman as being subservient and having no self esteem or belief in herself otherwise she would never have put up with this male chauvinist in her mate or her father. A real waste of time and total lack of respect for women.

    "Too funny!!!"

    This book caused me to waste so much time this weekend because I couldn't stop listening to it and had a hard time focusing on anything while I was listening. It was so funny I found myself laughing at loud, often. It was great because it was not predictable and a uniquely different story. Narrator was great too.

    "Not Your Typical Love Story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I wish Alex could have been nicer, everyone was just downright mean to Daisy. It got exhausting to listen to.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Expected, but pleasant.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Anna Fields?

    ALWAYS!!!


    Was Kiss an Angel worth the listening time?

    It's an enjoyable listen/ read, a good substitute for Phillips fans who have exhausted the rest of her novels.
