It was refreshing to have the hero be the innocent one in the relationship. The hero was still manly and attractive and had alpha male qualities even though he didn't have prior experience. Good read!

This was a fun book to read. Clem is a nerd of epic proportions. After a humiliating experience as a teenager and discovering women ran a mile from his inept social skills, he has retreated behind his thick glasses and beard and remains a virgin at thirty-two. Of course I had to read this.

Martha is still recovering from a failed romance. She hasn't had much chance of education as she's been caring for family for years.

To Clem, she is the embodiment of every fantasy, to Martha he is a creepy axe murderer who can barely put two words together.

I really enjoyed watching these two get it together. Clem is adorable and Martha is just the right kind of person to bring him out of his shell. Not intimidating but not a walkover either.

A good little read and a fun premise.

Beginner's Luck by Dixie Browning
~ Silhouette Desire #517 ~ September 1989 ~ Man of the Month

This book gives us a delightfully different story. Our hero Clement is a nerdy genius and while he excels in the scientific world, he is a babe when it comes to the world of courting a woman. He's achieved the age of 32 and though he's kissed a woman, he's never made love to one. So Clem's Aunt Hattie decides it's time she do something about Clement. Off to Greece she goes, while Clem recovers from a bout of pneumonia at her retreat in the mountains. What she fails to tell Clem is that she's invited a dear friend, Martha, to come for an extended visit! Our Clem is a charming nerdy hero who is delightful in his shyness when it comes to women. But genius that he is, all it takes is the right stimulus -- Martha! -- to prove just what a quick study he is!

DESCRIPTION FROM BACK COVER

MR. SEPTEMBER

Specimen: Male; age 32; intense blue eyes hidden by thick glasses; gosh-awful beard; perpetual scowl; rear end worthy of the hall of fame.
Native Habitat: Laboratory; alone, bent over a microscope.
Mating Habits: Unexplored. Love: an unknown quantity -- no scientific evidence it exists.

Clement Cornelius Barto used scientific accomplishments and accolades to keep him insulated from the world. Women scared him speechless -- literally -- and he found it far safer to stay wrapped in his laboratory cocoon.

Until Martha Eberly appeared at his cabin. She was the most beautiful creature he had ever beheld in his entire uneventful life. Clem was about to discover a thing called love. And with a little beginner's luck it might be the breakthrough he'd been searching for!
