Do you know that feeling when you have just finished a book you adored but you just can't figure out how to express that on your review? Well that's exactly what happened to me but I'll do my best to try to explain it to you all.

This was my favorite book from this author, I even liked it more than the Chicago stars series and I already had adored that series, I gave 5 stars to most of the books in it. But it was so different this time. I couldn't put the book down, that's how FREAKING amazing it

You HAVE to read this book!!! Please. I’m begging you, fellow readers.


This is not your typical story. This is not your typical book. This is a story that you have never read….trust me. It is anything BUT typical.

Love the idea of a black and white photo of vintage circus tents

The story begins with an arranged marriage. No, it’s not set in the medieval times. It’s a modern arranged marriage. Say what?! I know. It seems off-putting at first. But we quickly get to know Alex and Daisy, and the reason for the arranged marriage takes an app


Kiss an Angel was my first Susan Elizabeth Phillips book and it may be my last. I am usually pretty easy to please when it comes to what I choose to read. I don’t often dislike books that I read. Further, I really hate it when a book rubs me the wrong way. Alas, that is what happened with this book. I did not connect with either the hero or the heroine and I came away from reading the story not liking either character very much. I realize that I am in the minority when it comes to my opinion reg

4 1/2 Fun time Stars!! I didn't just love this book; I'm in love with it!!

Admittedly when I started to read this I thought this was not going to work for me. Boy was I ever wrong!!! Even with the over-the-top unrealistic circumstances that surrounded the characters, this book STOLE MY HEART!! Daisy, oh my goodness, talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve, she did everything… everything out of love!! She was one of the sweetest, kindest, most determined

OMG...i cant even...this love story just blew me away.....

KISS AN ANGEL is a beautiful love story that revolves around two broken & lone souls,both vulnerable and lost in their own ways...

honestly speaking,this book surprised me in more ways than one...i mean with its chic-lite cover,and subtle plot with normal summary..i had absolutely no idea what how emotional this book really was until i way halfway to its end....

the characters in the book seemed so strong,i couldn't help but admire

Seriously.. I’m speechless.. LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!!!!
It’s official! I am hopelessly in love with Susan Elizabeth Phillips! What a wonderful and endearing story this was. I was glued to the pages from start to finish with a stupid silly grin on my face the whole time. In fact, I can’t help smiling now as I’m writing this review. Just thinking back over the story, makes me want to pick the book up and start in all over again.

The characters were absolutely fantastic. The dialogue was g

I loved this story! Alex and Daisy are all kinds of amazing. I laughed, I sobbed, I sighed, I fanned myself...

My only problem with the story is that it ended.

Thank you to my lovely friends whose ravings made read this author. What do I read next???

KISS AN ANGEL published 18 years ago

Daisy has finally pushed her dad to his breaking point. Spending all her deceased mother’s money and racking up debt has lead her father to give her one last chance. This last chance involves marrying a stranger and staying “happily” married to him for 6 months which after her time is up she can divorce him and collect a trust fund. Sounds easy enough?!?!

Alex is a strict Russian who has agreed to marry Daisy because of a debt he owes her father. To break Daisy

5 Glimmering Huge Stars - Amazing, wonderful, sentimental, romantic... just the best kind of romance - simply a story that must be read - and now belongs to my top shelf

I'm in love! In love... In this wonderful story. Therefore, this is an exuberant, completely one-sided tribute review and must be read with an ounce of sanity. Because I never want to stop and will say again and again in different ways how much I love this book. Please be patient!!

Doy gracias a Dios por habernos dado a SEP y que esta nos haya regalado este libro.
No sé las veces que lo habré releído, pero siempre me emociona y conquista en las mismas partes.

“-Esta noche no, Daisy. Te necesito.”

Es un libro maravilloso, con una historia de amor que a las románticas como yo las hace sufrir hasta el final. Alex y Daisy te enganchan a sus páginas, y hacen que te enamores del circo en el que viven, junto con todos los animales que hay allí dentro.

Daisy es toda inocencia, dulzura
It has been a lazy day for me. I didn’t do much other than read and lounge outside in the sun. So I am going to continue with my laziness and provide you with a short and sweet review.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips rocks! Now that I have read and loved enough of her books I have put her on the dreaded author pedestal. I know I shouldn’t but I have and thankfully I absolutely adored Kiss an Angel from start to finish.

I won’t go on and on about the characters or the plot simply because there are a few
5++++ Stars Contemporary Romance

This is the third time I have read this book, and I would have to say that the story of Alex and Daisy never gets old. Its a beautiful love story with a strong cast of characters, each playing a vital role to make this story a worthwhile read.

Alex Markov was rescued by Daisy’s father Max when he was twelve years old from the constant physical abuse he was facing under his uncle Sergey. Max had bought Alex from his uncle and seen to his education. Alex had shaped
Lady Heather

I finished this book late last night because:

a) I couldn't put it down, and
b) I had to see if Alex would finally redeem himself after being such a selfish shit!

... needless to say that all is well in the land of HEA's, and I was finally able to sleep after a rather gut-wretching, nerve-wracking, nail-biting reading experience...*yay*.. just the type of book I needed to read!

I don't think the author could have written a more despicable, cold, and hateful character. Alex Markov was so wrapped up

4.5 stars

Susan Elizabeth Phillips is rapidly becoming one of my go-to authors. More and more these days I’m finding that contemporary romances and erotica have characters or plots so similar they become one big blur. What a treat it is to read Ms. Phillips’ older books. Some of them, such as Kiss an Angel, were written nearly two decades ago. Not only do they stand the test of time, they give the new kids on the block a run for their money. Every story and each character is so distinctly differe

This is a difficult review to write because there wasn't anything necessarily wrong with this book, it just didn't wow me like other CR. The circus background was different and nice for a change, the story of finding love in the least likely of places and discovering your life was always meant for bigger things was sweet too.

I liked Alex, and not just because he was an asshole. Let me clarify: I don't like assholes by default. The typical jerk-type assholes who are dicks j
6 stars!!!

After reading Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ book “It Had to Be You,” I just had to pick up another book from Susan Elizabeth Phillips! The next book I ended up picking up from her was “Kiss An Angel” and after hearing so many good reviews on this book, I just had to give this book a shot! Oh my goodness, I was definitely blown away by this fantastic romance novel that will make me view the circus as a magical adventure of a lifetime!

"No importa, cariño. Yo tengo suficiente amor por los dos."

Jamas, jamas había encontrado un libro que me enterneciera, me enamorara y me hiciera llorar de pura alegría y tristeza, como este. Oh Dios mío, ¿cómo retrase tanto la lectura?

Es el libro mas hermoso que leeré jamas.


Daisy fue un personaje que amé y adoré. Su desarrollo en el libro me enamoró, dejo de ser una chica tan insegura, tan inocente, seguía siendo ingenua pero, joder, si no era adorable, y comenzó a ser valiente y a plantar cara.

Wow. This is my first Susan Elizabeth Phillips novel and I loved everything about it.
Everyone was so 3 dimensional and rounded and it was so heartwarming.

After all the crap I read, I really fell in love with this one. I won't forget this romance
for a long time.

Every element interweaved in this book worked so well.

Recommends it for: Those who know love may not conquer all, but it certaintly makes it more bearable

Five stars over and over again.

This is the kind of book to read, when you feel down and murderous and bitter and depressed.

This is the kind of book to read, if you are a hopeless romantic who believes that love has the power to redeem people.

This is the kind of book to read, if you're not a romantic person, find most of the love songs and romantic comedies disturbing and annoying and yet need to put all your negativity aside for a few hours and let the illusion of love conquering all cloud your

To sum it up: Pretty, flighty Daisy Devreaux can either go to jail or marry the mystery man her father has chosen for her. Arranged marriages don't happen in the modern world, so how did the irrepressible Daisy find herself in this fix? ...Alex Markov, as humorless as he is deadly handsome, has no intention of playing the loving bridegroom to a spoiled little featherhead with champagne tastes. He drags Daisy form her uptown life to a broken down traveling circus and sets out to tame her to his w ...more
Update: Anna Field's audio performance was good, but the book is even better when read.
With a large dollop of speculative Russian history and paranormal woo-woo, this romance is absurdly improbable, contrived, and full of typos. At least a dozen, in kindle version. But I loved it. :-) The author pulled on my emotions big time. I could almost feel the fishing line. Plus, it's dated and stereotyped, and Alex is a heel at least 50% of the time.

But, I am hooked! Great grovel scene, lots of sizzle,

I'm feeling lazy today guys, so excuse me if this is will turn out as a half-assed review :)

I won't give away spoilers but here's what I think about this book.

This is my first Susan Elizabeth Phillips read and let's just say that I will be reading a lot of her works in the future. Lately, I notice that most (romance) books that are circulating in my feeds are all the same.

example 1: Tortured hero with a dark past and a heroine who is either timid or feisty.They have awesome, mind-blowing sex

Amazing read!

One of the best female characters as far as I can remember in all books I have ever read.
Daisy made me laugh many times

“I really don’t think I can live like this,” she said.
“It’s filthy.”
“You’re right about that. I guess it needs a woman’s touch. There’s some cleaning stuff under the sink.”

“Did you eat my Twinkies?"
She gulped. Keeping her eyes glued to the whip, she said, "Exactly what Twinkies are we talking about?"

Love this one! Re-read for the "umpteenth" time. Probably my favorite book ever.

Holy cow. That was good. Really good. I went through tons of emotions reading this and even shed some tears. Both Daisy and Alex took some time for me to like. Daisy seemed pretty naive and tad needy. Alex was a jerk and stubborn to boot. But as the story went on, each of them slowly began to change. They provoked each other, chipping away at each other's flaws. By the end of the story, you wanted nothing more than their HEA. I LOVED it!

However, there were some parts of the book that
Primer libro independiente que leo de SEP y ¡que libro!. Que maravilla. La historia es preciosa.

La protagonista, Daisy tiene que decidir entre ir a la cárcel o casarse con un hombre que no conoce y que ha elegido su padre. Me reído con la forma de ser de Alex, que va de borde y duro por la vida, pero que al final es un cacho de pan.

Ahora entiendo porque dicen que SEP es una de las reinas del género romántico. Si no has leído nada de ella y te gusta este género, debes leer a SEP.
I loved this one, it was very Harlequinesque and full of angst. SEP does a fantastic job of making us feel both the H and the h's pain but like all romance we get our HEA.
I bought this book for $1.99 yesterday from Barnes & Noble. I want my money back. Or at least the hours I spent reading it.

When I bought the book, I couldn't see the summary of the text, as BN was displaying information about a book by Eloisa James. However, having worked in a bookstore, I know how popular Phillips is, and I decided to give her a chance even though I had no idea what the book was about. Big mistake.

Amé este libro tan malditamente desde el primer capítulo. Es perfecto, amo la forma que está escrito y como te atrapa desde el principio.
Me hizo sentir muchas cosas en muchos momentos, esos tironcitos en el corazón que se siente algunas veces de angustia y otras de felicidad.
Me gustó mucho la comparación que hacía Daisy de Alex con el tigre Sinjun.
Al principio, cuando me dí cuenta que el escenario sería en un circo pensé en que no sería un libro tan bueno, sin embargo, juzgué mal.
