Very entertaining read! Ethan and Anna were the perfect match. As usual, Janet Chapman delivers a funny, heartwarming and romantic story.

This is the second book in the Logger Series. After reading the first book, and learning Ethan had been fired his first day on the “job” at the mill his family will soon own, I was excited to see how his story would unfold. This book didn’t disappoint. Ethan, though suffering from a bit of old school mentality when it comes to women working in a “man’s” domain,
OMG Girl! Where has Janet Chapman been hiding?!?

Bit of a background on me and this book: I went to something called a 'reuse' centre with my mom and in the musty dusty bordering on disgusting building of treasures, I dug around in the very busy book section (busy section but I was the only one in romance). I was snooping around under the table were all the boxed books are looking for classics that I have in ebook format but could use in my actual library (Susan Elizabeth Phillips books or Rachel

The Stranger in Her Bed is the second book in the Logger Series featuring the Knight family. Some events in this book started towards the end of book 1 in this two part series, the Seduction of His Wife. Trying to reclaim her life in Maine, Anna Segee leaves the comforts of her Dad’s empire (Segee Logging) to become the forewoman at Looncove Lumber Mill scant miles from her grandfather’s sawmill ranch she’s just inherited. On Ethan Knight’s first day of work at Looncove, he steps immediately ...

The second installment for the Knight brothers takes placed immediately after The Seduction of His Wife, and second brother Ethan has begun working at the mill in preparation of taking it over as part of the family business - unknown to the current workers which include Anna Segee. Anna left Oak Grove as a child but never forgot Ethan Knight who she's loved since he saved her from being brutalized by town bullies. Time has brought many changes and Ethan doesn't recognize Anna b

Sorta cute romance with plenty of drama, secrets and some mystery from beginning to end.

A female in a male dominated career knows she can't show any weakness. Then you get the egotistical man that has to be taught that this female isn't one to go down easy, emotionally or physically.

Sorry for such a short review but I finished this almost a month ago so..there you have it.
This is my first time reading this author and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I really liked the heroine, Anna. She is strong and fair minded. And surprise surprise, so is the male lead, Ethan! Is it possible to make a romance story where both the hero and heroine are fair minded? Well here is living proof!
I look forward to reading the first book in this series!!

I've been having a hard time with books lately, so I really needed something light and fluffy. Like the first one, there is no real conflict between the main characters (although this one has more than the first) and it was a quick easy read.

In diesem Band geht es um den zweiten Knight Bruder - Ethan. Der ja jetzt im Sägewerk anfängt und bereits an seinem ersten Arbeitstag mit der Vorarbeiterin aneinandergerät und von ihr gefeuert wird.
Er taucht dann als ihr Boss wieder auf und mietet sich noch dazu in ihren nahegelegenen Ferienhäusern ein.

Anscheinend wird es wohl kein eigens Buch um den dritten Bruder Paul geben, da dieser Band ja bereits 2007 erschienen ist und dessen Geschichte kurz in diesem Buch abgehandelt wird. Schade, den ic

This was the better of the 2 logger series books. It is written so it can be read out of order with NO spoilers.

Anna comes back to maine from canada after inhereting an old mill from her grandfather. She has been using her middle name & her dad's last name for the last 18 years after being wisked away to Canada after an attempted rape by 3 boys when she was only 11. Ethan had come to her rescue and saved her.

This was a nice companion Romance to the book: The Seduction of his Wife by Janet Chapman. Chapman does an excellent job of giving me just enough of a teaser in the first book which is about Alex Knight for me to want to read this one which follows Ethan Knight Alex's little brother. Chapman again weaves a combustable romance between Ethan Knight a loyal man who is has all the right traits including a knight in shining armor complex. Anna Segee returns to Maine after living in Canada with her Fr ...more

As in other books by Janet Chapman, there is tension, danger, surprises, touches of humor, and the coming together of two seemingly unsuited individuals, ending with their HEA.

Anna Segee is a self-confident woman who, over the past 18 years, has nurtured her girlhood crush on Ethan Knight. When she ultimately meets handsome, adult Ethan, Anna has to reconcile her dreams of Ethan with the real thing. They have an explosive relationship. However, when Anna is confronted with her past, Ethan is th
What can I say, I am in love with Janet Chapman’s novels. I Only have three of her novels to go before I have read them all. :’(
This is one of her older series. It follows the story of the second brother Ethan and Anna. Love their dynamic of being bossy and take charge personalities.
What I don’t like. I thought we got jipped out of another story. The third brother finds love and happy ending in this story as well. I was hoping he would have his own novel. Which, I believe is still possible. We

I was lied to. Bamboozled. Trapped into a bait and switch. I THOUGHT this book was about a blue-collar foreman (woman) who falls in love with the new mill owner -- WRONG!

This is a poor little rich girl trope, which I absolutely despise. We're talking a cashmere wearing, diamond earring having, Uber Rich daddy's little girl trying to "make it on her own" ugh.

As for the hero, this broke bitch doesn't own the mill, his daddy does. He's just running it. Who wants to read about a motherfucker who doe

Heroine had a crush on the hero years ago, when she was a little girl. Now she's the foreman at a lumberyard the hero's family is in the process of buying. And he gets fired for breaking safety rules the day he shows up to "learn the ropes." The heroine is trying to prove herself to her overprotective family. The hero wants to win the heroine. There's a bit of a mystery--somebody might be sabotaging the mill, or maybe they're after the heroine. There's some sparring between hero and heroine. It ...more

I like Janet Chapman's stories of rugged men in wild and manly Maine with strong women showing them the way to a blissful future, even if they have to beat it into them. The women of her books are not hepless little things but strong women who can stand there own! When I started reading the book I could not stop. I finished it in one day. What I liked was it had humor in it with the romance. Even though I enjoyed it, it was not as good as the book (The Seduction of His Wife) the one before it.
Sep 20, 2010 rated it it was ok
Hardly felt an emotional pull to any of the characters in the story.
All the characters seemed fairly dense and shallow even with their so called 'background' history to explain everything. Hardly realistic (not saying all books are realistic in any sense since most are 'fictional') from the likes of it. Good for people only looking for a quick read with not much to think about. Characters appear a bit shallow; hard to feel with the character and the depth of their ‘love’.
Claire Mojieski
A good book but I didn't like it nearly as much as the first book The Seduction of His Wife. The connection between Alex and Sarah in the first book was amazing. It made me laugh and want to yell at Alex (well really just page 57!!) This book just didn't do that for me. It was good but not as good as I expected it to be.

I just happened upon this author and decided to give her books a try. Boy, am I glad I did. I have finished both 1 and 2 and was very pleasantly surprised. It has mystery. It has romance. It has a little bit of independence clashing with a Knight in shining armor complex.
Can't wait to get started on 3.

Ethan Knight hired on at the saw mill to get the lay of the land before his family bought it from a very old friend. Then he does something dangerous and steps in front of a loader carrying tons of logs and causes all hell to break lose. Anna Segee was driving the loader and is the foreman at the job site, she fires Ethan on the spot telling him "This is a lumber mill not Disneyland!!"

– In The Stranger in Her Bed, Janet Chapman combines quirky characters with humor, sensuality and tension to create a very good read. Anna is a straightforward, in-your-face kind of woman who takes the sexy and headstrong hero, Ethan, by surprise. Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong as these two butt heads and share their hearts. ~ Cerise,

I enjoyed this book about sawmill foreman Anna who fires Ethan on his first day on the job. Plot, action, sex were all good although chauvinism was a bit heavy at times, her books always have exciting endings.
Book #2 in the Logger series. This book starts right where #1 ends off. The family buying a lumber company further North! Ethan goes to the Lumbermill where Anna is the foreman. I enjoyed the character interactions. Nice read.

This was the second book of this series with the brother Ethan. It was okay and better than the first one. Ethan is owner of Knight Logging and buys out a logging company with a woman foreman - Anna. But Anna has a past that is hidden and comes back to haunt them both.

The second in the Logger series is equally excellent to read. It ties up all the loose ends from the first story (the remaining bachelors, that is) and makes you laugh and cry, sometimes on the same page. GREAT STORY!!!!
