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?

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.

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!

Part of the book is missing

I read this book years ago. And a lot of it is cut out in this audio. I was very disappointed in it.

A little old-fashioned and Sweet

This is once-upon-a-timewhen virginity was real and hot passion was a dream waiting to happen.

Early Classic Romance

Audible Escape I love these old time short core romances of Ms Palmer, even if the dialogue and thinking are so dated. It is of that time when hero’s were macho and heroines of Ms Palmers books were strong emotionally but keep themselves pure until they found the one and only to marry. These were obtained from another source and the narrator name is given in the opening, but not listed. Ms Karen Carbon does fairly well for this very old classic. I do admit I have cringed just a bit through some of the dialogue and realized as the years have gone by, some of these old books just do not transfer to 2020. I do use the 1.25x speed as that helps to keep the story pace very good. Give it a try. Were my comments of help

Awesome

Having read everything Diana has written I can lay hands on, I have to say I loved this book as much as I do her others. Highly recommend this book.

Great short novella.

Fun listen with great narration. Thoroughly entertaining! You will get a little teary eyed and admire the characters' tenacity.
