Emily and Luke scintillate and banter with the best of the best. Screwball comedy wit a la Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. I loved that element of Lucy King's writing. T

4 Stars! ~ This is Ms. King's debut with Harlequin and what a fabulous debut it is! Instantly from the first page, I was falling in love with the characters.

This started really good i loved the on line auction i wished the author let us in on the auction might have been entertaining. I felt as the story progresses it just slowly became boring. I did not like the end with her unwanted situation or their reaction to it. Disappointed when it wrapped up.

Two things I love in a book - great dialogue and steamy scenes between the main characters and this book has got it in spades - great story and what a debut! I'm seriously impressed.
