Publisher's Summary

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.

classic Susan Phillips

I really enjoy Susan Phillips books. this is a classic one. A little over the top with the "arranged" marriage but the circus theme is very funny. the people developed by the author are just great
check it out. if you love Phillips you will love this book

Audiobook was better than the physical book.

The narrator Anna Fields is wonderful. Her interpretations are better than mine. She makes the story better. I really enjoyed this - the characters, relationships, events.

I first read the paperback in 2007 and gave this 4 stars. But I changed it to 5 stars after listening to the audiobook.

Laugh, cry and sigh all in one night!

Would you listen to Kiss an Angel again? Why?

I have listened to this great story serveral times. This will keep you up all night to finish the
story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Kiss an Angel?

Daisy sitting between Sinjin's paws.

What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

I have all of ms Fields performances of S.E.P.books. The late ms Fields is so badly missed. Her rich voice was a gift to Ms Phillips books.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

2 moments, Daisy working in the Elephant truck and when Alex tells Daisy of his wealth.

Any additional comments?

this book is a great listen

Would recommend it!

A very light read. SEP has once again created characters that you will come to know and love. I didn't think I was going to like this book, but I couldn't stop listening to it. This story wasn't quite as believable as some of her others; however, it is a nice armchair vacation. Anna Field's reading of SEP brings these characters to life in her usual outstanding mode of accents and inflections. I thoroughly enjoy SEP's wit, sass, and sense of humor.

Who knew the circus had so much romance!

Where does Kiss an Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its among my favorites. Though I have many, this was a little differentand I love SEP. She writes funny like no author I've listened to before.SEP blends emotions beautifully and has me laughing out loud.

What did you like best about this story?

Not sure. I don't tend to like circus', however, I have a love foranimals.

What does Anna Fields bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Anna Fields and SEP are a love match! Anna Fields has the best
expressions while narrating SEP's stories and SEP's stories bring out the
best in AF.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Arranged marriages anyone?

Any additional comments?

It took me a while to decide on SEP's book about the circus becauseI really don't like the circus,but I'm so glad I did. Like an Angel is oneof my favorite SEP books now. Though I like them all.

Always Enjoyable

For fun, light and truly romantic frivolity, I always turn to SEP. In Kiss an Angel, she brings to life the sights and sounds of the every day circus and weaves a heartwarming love story throughout the story. Like I said, always enjoyable!

Another winner from SEP

I love every book that this author writes and the narrator is the very best I have ever heard. Great story with wonderful characters fully developed. Had me laughing out loud at times. Wonderful ending as usual.

So much fun. No one writes as well as Susan Elizabeth Phillips or narrates like Anna Fields.
