Book Description

Hot shot legal eagle, Tom Brodie, has been landed with an assignment to test any man to his limits - do whatever it takes to prevent headstrong heiress Emerald Carlisle from marrying a fortune-hunter. He is not happy about it, and when Emmy stows away in his car, his day goes from bad to worse, but since she's the only one who knows where to find the man in question he has no choice but take her along for the ride.

It's a bumpy one!

Emmy is not a woman to sit back and let things fall as they will. She has a plan and she keeps Brodie on his toes in a rollercoaster chase across the UK and France. He's more than up to the challenge, but falling in love with Emmy along the way is always going to end with his heart in pieces.

This story is a delightful romp from start to finish. Emmy is a sparkling heroine who is never short of ideas and the impulsive panache to carry them out. - A Pleasant Book Blogspot

5.0 out of 5 stars i want a special name for this kind of romance June 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I haven't known where to look for this kind of story. Under "romance" there are a lot of heavy-breathing storylines with explicit sex which are uncomfortable for me to read partly because they are so cliched and not because I am a prude. I certainly don't want to argue with all of the people who like this formula. However, I love romances with fun and wit and surprise and well-developed reasons for believing in the characters' attraction. I'm very happy to have found my first book by Liz Fielding, and I look forward to reading more of her stories. I just wish I could remember by which book-recommendation-path I found her!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun and enjoyable read May 13, 2012
By Fiona
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is a delightful romp from start to finish. Emmy is a sparkling heroine who is never short of ideas and the impulsive panache to carry them out.
Tom Brodie is the very opposite of the wayward heiress. He's worked his way up from a very different background with ambition to burn. Someone like Emmy is the last kind of girl he'd be interested in.
Until he ends up on a road with with her and discovers that there is a whole lot of woman under the madcap society girl.
The road trip takes them across England and France by road, rail and road, involves one stolen and one borrowed vehicle, (a brightly coloured VWBug), damage to a hired car and destruction of another vehicle. A violent storm and a violent passion pretty much round off a very enjoyable journey full of witty dialogue and well drawn characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a fun, fast read that I thoroughly enjoyed! March 5, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a charmingly witty romance that was a delight to read. Emerald is often underestimated and having once at 18 made a terrible mistake of the heart, her father fears her impulsive nature will only lead to more heartache. When Emmy announces she's going to marry her starving artist friend, her father jumps and calls his lawyers to pay off the prospective groom. Emmy expected as much but she hadn't gambled on Tom Brodie, the newest hotshot attorney to make partner in the firm to be given the nasty job. Tom instantly recognizes Emmy's craftiness and knows that it will take all of his wits to keep up with her. These two are adorable together! I loved that Tom knew he was a goner and that Emmy had she really tried could have had him wrapped around her little finger. This is a fun, fast read that I thoroughly enjoyed!

Eloping with Emmy by Liz Fielding
~ Harlequin Romance Subscription #396 ~ October 1998

From the back cover...

A funny thing happened on the way to the wedding...

Emerald Carlisle knows her father would go to any lengths to stop a wedding between her and her penniless friend Kit Fairfax. Announcing their engagement seems a surefire way of helping Kit raise some cash!

As her father's lawyer, Tom Brodie knows his duty is to buy off the groom and bring the daughter to heel. Unfortunately Emerald is as beautiful as she is charming. She's even managed to get Tom to help her "elope" on the grounds that the easiest way to follow a runaway heiress is to take her where she wants to go! But after spending time with Emmy, Tom soon realizes she could persuade him to take her anywhere...even up the aisle!

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't care for the heroine June 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like a quirky, zany, madcap romp with a spoiled, self-centered, selfish rich girl/woman, then you will love this one. Frankly, I could not stand the heroine. Bad childhood or not, no sympathy for her.

Tom is a young lawyer in a big firm, he gets, by default, the job of keeping Emmy from eloping with an artist that her father thinks is after her millions. It is obvious from the first of the story that she is not in love with this guy but is using him for some scheme of Emmy's. You get the impression that he doesn't care.

She starts out breaking out of the second story of the house where her father has locked her in a room. Ok, you have some sympathy here. But she starts out stealing Tom's car. Leaving him in a restaurant many miles from London to get home on his own. She lies, cheats, you name it. No regard for anyone else or anyone's property, why bother since Daddy will pay for anything she destroys. He falls for her, WHY? I have no idea. I only wanted to choke her.

I really tried to finish this book but I just couldn't. She was so immature that I could not see her falling for him and having anything lasting, except sex. She says she was a "child" at 18 when she tried to elope with her first "love", the one Daddy bought off and he promptly bought a new car with the money. She felt like he should have held out for more money, obviously he was as stupid as she was. However, at 23 she now knows everything. Try as I did, I just could not find one thing to like about this girl. I just gave up, she was off on another of her "madcap" adventures leaving our hero to look like a fool, and that was it for me. I just couldn't see myself really liking this chick in the time it would take me to finish the book--no matter what her reasons were. I really thought Tom deserved better!!!

Eloping With Emmy

ELOPING WITH EMMY is from author Liz Fielding.

Tom Brody, an upcoming young lawyer just made partner in a prestigious and traditional law firm, is called by an important client in the absence of his more senior partner. The client wanted Tom to find out the man whom his daughter wanted to marry and offer him money to go away. This was not Tom's normal duty and he was irritated to find that he couldn't refuse the client.

Emerald Carlisle was locked up in a second storey nursery by her dad to stop her from marrying. She escaped by going down the drainpipe and hid in Tom's car. What will happen when Tom will discover her? Will he take her back to her father to be locked up again?
Before Tom could do much, Emmy steals his car and runs away. But Tom is determined to catch up to her.

Tom took her with him to go and talk to her fiancé. The journey to South of France is full of adventure and fun! While on the way to meet her fiancé to get married, Emmy falls in love with Tom. And despite his misgivings about Emmy being a tiresome heiress, Tom is attracted to her. Later he discovers that Emmy is not really engaged. He also finds out that Emmy is a bright, sexy woman with a mind of her own. Her father had seriously misunderstood her.

ELOPING WITH EMMY is full of witty dialogue and funny anecdotes. It was a fun, light read and a good escape. I loved the characters and the growth and progression of romance between them was exquisitely rendered. But then this is expected from the master story-teller Liz Fielding.
