    The Kept Woman by Susan Donovan
    I want, I want, I want!!!!!!


    Anyone read this yet?


    The Kept Woman by Susan Donovan sounds like too much good fun. And the title amuses me, don't ask.


    summary from her site:
    THE KEPT WOMAN. It's the story of Samantha Monroe, a hard-working Indianapolis hairstylist and single mother who enters into an agreement to help a playboy Congressional candidate redeem his reputation with voters. For a tidy sum, the wholesome "everywoman" agrees to pose as sexy Jack Tolliver's fiancee until the election. But things get complicated when very real sparks fly between Sam and Jack and their arrangement sparks interest from nosy reporters, blackmailing ex-husbands, kids with agendas, and an appalled society-maven mother (who happens to have the worst hairdo Sam has ever seen.) It's a bumpy ride with a destination no one could have predicted - except maybe veteran romance readers!


    Has it been done before? Sure prolly, but Susan Donovan has a great voice and a way with humor that works for me. And look... more legs on covers ;)

    1. I'm still on the fence with this one. I really really liked her first two books - 'specially Take a Chance on Me - I've read it 4 or 5 times now - but I hated He Loves Lucy with every fibre of my being in oh so many ways right from the opening scene. Now I'm asceared to try her again.

    2. I can't believe the premise. I just don't know if I can get over that. Or the irritating, "I'm so beautiful" descriptions. Frankly, the poetry from Public Displays of Affection is still fresh in my mind and I can't get past that either.

    4. I've read Take a Chance on Me, so I'd be willing to check this out. But not right now. LOL I have too many books as it is.

    5. How funny, I didn't like Take A Chance on Me at all, but I loved Public Displays of Affection and He Loves Lucy. Oh, nevermind, I loved TACOM, but I hated that other one..uh, has a pink cover...Something about feet. I didn't even finish that one.

      I'll be buying this one. I love SD.

    6. Huh. I ordered that book. And another book by her. I forget the title. If they suck, can I blame you and kick you in the shins, Syb?
