He's Her - This book shines with fun, love and magic!!


He's Her is not like any other paranormal romance. It's quirky. And the romance is all in the heroine's head. No, that's not quite right. The hero. He's in the heroine's head. And he's not happy to be there!!

"Reading the story of how they straighten out the mess was hilarious at times, poignant at others and kept me enthralled to the end." ~ reviewed by Charlotte

"Really Really enjoyed this Book. Fantastic book. Amazing story line, found it hard to leave the book, Couldn't wait to read next Series. Wow love this Book! ~ reviewed by Marie E. Price

Editorial Reviews


Fallen Angel Review
He's Her lends a new definition to the term "cerebral love," since the two main characters fall in love while cohabitating in one body. This is a sweet romance with just a touch of sensuality to it, and all love-making is mental and "spiritual" instead of physical. Perhaps I am somewhat jaded, but the spiritual aspect of the love-making didn't really work for me and reminded me just a little too much of the series romances of the 70s and 80s. The relationship between Rhett and Carrie is still very enjoyable to watch unfold, and Ms. Barbour has done a very effective job making their interactions both interesting and entertaining. Rhett professes to be selfish and abrupt, yet he shows surprising insight when dealing with Carrie and her issues. Carrie is a very repressed character, but with Rhett acting as her coach and mental cheering section, she finally grows a backbone. Romance fans are bound to enjoy this novella. Assuming that there will be a third story in this series, I personally am curious as to how Ms Barbour is going to continue the theme and whether she can keep it as fresh and unique as He's Her undoubtedly is.

From the Author

This is the second book in The Vicarage Bench Series. The story came to me as I watched an older couple sitting together on a bench, holding hands. I wondered what it would be like to loose someone you loved after living a lifetime with them. Then of course it came to me. What if his spirit lived inside you. Then you'd never be alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharing the Love April 11, 2012
By TinaR
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second novella in The Vicarage Bench Series and it did not disappoint, I only wished it was longer.

It's 1967, in a small town in England where Rhett Parks has promised to bring his father's body from America to his final resting place near his childhood home. Due to his lonely upbringing Rhett is not a man who cares for anyone, and does whatever he can as long as he can benefit from it.

Carrie Temple is a lovingly, shy school teacher who takes people just as they are as she tries to find something good in a bad situation. She never has a negative word for anyone and takes criticism without a thought to defend herself.

As Rhett is sitting on the bench outside the vicarage trying to get past the last few days Carrie approaches heading for the rose bushes behind him. He doesn't want to be bothered with anyone right now. He hears a whimper behind him, but tries to ignore it. As Carrie tries to sit from dizziness he acts the gentleman and picks up the rose she dropped, sticking his finger with the rose and goes unconscious.

Carrie comes to and soon realizes she is now sharing her body with this unhappy man. They are not getting along and sharing her body with this man is not working at all, but as time goes on their feelings start changing and they get closer with each other.

Can Rhett teach her to start sticking up for herself and tell people what she really thinks? Can Carrie teach him what it is to care for someone other than himself and learn to love?

Join Rhett and Carrie as they try to figure out what happened and try to fix it so he can return to his own body and see if they can have a real relationship while not sharing the same one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome May 20, 2012
By Nancy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to agree with a previous review I wished it was longer. I actually like this second book in the The Vicarage Bench Series more than the first. I loved when the he part realized how unfeeling he was of others when he started seeing compassion from within a woman. I even cried when he realized was in love. Now onto the third book in the series and I don't think I will be disappointed except it will be the end of this series. I hope the writer can figure out a way to do another series like this. And I am sure I will check out other books she has done.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun addition to The Vicarage Bench Series May 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Casino owner, Rhett Parks, is sitting on a vicarage bench in the small village of Bury in England when a young woman decides to snitch a few roses from the bush behind him. One thing leads to another and they both prick themselves with the same rose. His body ends up on the ground out cold while his spirit winds up inside the silly girl.

Reading the story of how they straighten out the mess was hilarious at times, poignant at others and kept me enthralled to the end.

Ms. Barbour has had numerous compliments on her characterization skills and after reading "He's Her" I have to agree.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Terrific Vicarage Bench Series Novella May 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This delightful second novella of the Vicarage Bench Series, He's Her, is a perfect follow up to the first, She's Me. Ms. Barbour takes us from the present and sweeps us back to the 1960's when Carrie and Rhett prick their fingers on a rose in the vicarage garden. This time it's the unhappy, handsome casino owner, Rhett Parks who is transported into the body of shy, sensitive, easy-going school teacher, Carrie Temple. It's not only confusing and frustrating for both, but more than hiliarious and down right sensuous. Rhett doesn't simply invade her privacy, but is determined to teach her to stand up for her rights and speak her mind. Carrie in turns tries to heal his bruised heart so he can learn to love others. But will Rhett ever be able to return to his own body and act on his feelings? And will Carrie be strong enough to see all of it through? Read the book and find out. Like I said it's a delighful read. Treat yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nicely done July 6, 2012
By Nela
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very quick read that was well done. It made me think about rose bushes a bit differently, though even though it's pure fiction the writing was realistic and flowed well. The plot didn't linger or make me want to just skip paragraphs or pages at a time. Rhett was an interesting character that ends up doing a bit of time in Carrie's head and they both learned positively from the experience. I liked this book though it didn't "wow" me.
