Vanessa could kick herself! It had been a simple dared Benedict Savage imply that she'd deliberately set out to seduce him? The very idea was outrageous, he simply wasn't her type! No matter that

Light fun read by Susan Napier. I really enjoyed this because none of the characters were cast in the stereotypical mode. It's been on my TBR pile for ages and something made me decide to pick it up this weekend. I am so glad that I did.

The heroine was his butler...tall, beautiful, buxom and very smart. The hero was shorter with glasses, but sexy as sin. She wants to hide all her secrets, he won't let her.

I liked the way the relationship developed and I found myself laughing out loud as she le
I read this book atleast 10 years ago and I remember it made a big impact on me, not least for the fact that the hero is physically shorter than the heroine - in all the books that I have read ( and I have read a LOT) that's never happened.

2-The butler did it - but the butler is female ( I hadn't thought about a female butler!)
3-Guy wears glasses ( as someone who wears them too - I loved that perspective!)
4 - You can just tell its going to last....

its not wham bam, thank you ma'am stuff that yo

I read this because it's on a few Best Harlequins type lists. I wasn't impressed, but maybe I just don't like it when the heroine is Amazonian and taller than the hero. Though this book did have its funny moments.
Benedict Savage is a successful architect, going on 34 when that vague sense of dissatisfaction that has been plaguing him for quite sometime makes him seek refuge in Whitefield House, a property that he had inherited from an uncle who had left it to him, a property that had come along with his deceased uncle’s female butler Vanessa Flynn.

Finding a mystery woman in Benedict’s bed is what kick-starts the story, a woman who disappears by the next morning leaving Benedict flummoxed by the whole thi

Tall 24yo butler heroine is leading her enigmatic businessman employer Hero to believe that the blonde woman in slinky lingerie he slept with the night before was 1 of his estate's ghosts. She is embarrassed that she doesn't remember anything that happened while she slept b/c of being drunk & feels relieved that Hero doesn't recognize her the next day dressed in her usual prim butler uniform & tightly-swept hairstyle. He soon finds out what she's been hiding when he sees her on a date wi ...more

I really enjoyed this story. It was great fun with an unusual hero and distinctive heroine. I really liked both characters and the back and forth between them. I usually enjoy this author's stories. She isn't afraid to have different heroes from the usual alpha jerks.

The courtship was very much a two steps forward, one step back with a lot of humour.

Vannessa was an extremely good Butler: she had to take care of a great and alone house so she used to sleep in a different room each day as a way to mantein each room appropriately aired.
One night, her boss returned without telling her and fin a very sexy blond who he thought was his birthday present. The next morning, he wanted to know who was the sexy blonde. Afraid of his reaction, she keeped her identity as a secret.
Benedict felt very confused. He was sure he had a beautiful and unconscious
Why 5 stars?

Because the h/H are different from the generic. Because the author is a NZer. Because Susan Napier is a favourite in my Harlequin collection. Because I love the thrill of seduction. Because everybody deserves a Happily Ever After.
