Georgie York, once the costar of America's favorite television sitcom, has been publicly abandoned by her famous husband, her film career has tanked, her father is driving her crazy, and her public image as a spunky heroine is taking a serious beating. What should a down-on-her-luck actress do?

Reviewed: 06-12-11

I have listened to almost all of the SEP books and I can honestly say this one is in the top three. This was a great love story painted in a hollywood type setting. Georgie is a very likable character that I connected to instantly. I think I listened to this is 2 days because I just wanted to find out what happened next. Note that Julia Gibson reads this one instead of Anna Fields. There is also some weird music going on, but I think Julia does an excellent job overall and the novel is great.

Jane Darlington is a genius at physics, but there's one problem she can't solve. She yearns for a child, but wants to spare it the pain of growing up as...well, a nerd. And surely any child of Jane's would be a little too brainy for the playground set. So she sets out to find a special man to father her child, someone without too much gray-matter between his ears: in short, a big, strong dope. Cal Bonner, legendary pro quarterback, seems to fit the bill. But there's something Dr. Jane hasn't counted on.

I listened to this one while I was at work, and I was impressed at how much research SEP must have had to do to portray Jane the scientist. Another great book here with the awesome Anna Fields narrating. Funny at times, and as always SEP delivers a great love story.

The War Between the States may be over for the rest of the country, but not for Kit Weston. Disguised as a boy, she's come to New York City to kill Baron Cain, the man who stands between her and Risen Glory, the South Carolina home she loves. But unknown to Kit, the Yankee war hero is more than her bitterest enemy; he's also her guardian. And he'll be a lot harder to kill than she's figured on.

I have listened to almost all of SEP's books so I thought this one was going to be the same as the rest. Boy was I wrong. I had a hard time getting into this one because it is set post civil war and starts out with a stable boy who is really a girl. Strange beginning. But once it gets moving this is one of the best love stories SEP has ever told.

It seems like an easy assignment for an assertive but sweet woman like Gracie Snow: track down her friend, Bobby Denton, a famous ex-jock, and bring him to Heaven (Texas, that is) to shoot a movie. How could he refuse a glamorous offer like that? Easy....

SEP and Anna Fields are an awesome combination. I thought this book was really great. I enjoyed the story of Dally and Francesca. It drug on a bit at times, to the point where I was like, GET TOGETHER ALREADY!! But as always, SEP does not disappoint.

This book kept me interested and I would have given it 5 stars if not for the horrible narrator. She was HORRIBLE at all of the accents to the point where it was distracting and almost racist. Anyway, the content of the book was good so if you can overlook the bad narration then it is worth it.

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.

I like SEP, and though the circus theme was a little strange, she still managed to pull off a great love story. If you like SEP you will like this one too.
