Once in a great while, a book comes along in the stream of tired, overworked romance series that blows away all hint of catagory: This is such a book. A strait-laced librarian, who supercedes the stereotype, falls in love with a male stripper who is both more and less than he seems. There is nothing superficial about this book. The story is told with a tenderness and honesty that made this jaded reader squirm uncomfortably, laugh, and cry. If you can find a copy of this book, get it.

The Loveswept Line was a treat for romance lovers. Many well know authors have come out of this line and it is a shame that it is no longer around. Lighnting That Lingers could possibly be the best book to ever come out as a single category romance.
This books is very sweet and telling of human nature and what we see is not necessarily what we get.
Jennifer is a very shy librarian who has just started out on her own. One night her co-workers go out for a night on the town. They go to a strip club where they salivate over stripper Philip. Jenny is just plain embarrassed by the whole situation, which Philip senses, but tries to help her enjoy herself by offering her a little kiss.
Philip is not only a stipper. He is from a very old school family upbringing, has a love for animals and is very very lonely. He needs money and the only way he knows how is to strip for it. He sees Jenny again in town and knows there is something special about her. Perhaps she can help erase his loneliness?
The Curtis duo have written Jenny and Philip in a beautiful way. Philip is described as drop dead gorgeous whereas Jenny is a little plain but also cute. Philip handles her like one of his baby owls. Jenny in turn allows herself to accept what Philipis offering.
These are just two people trying to find their place in life. Hopefully Jenny can get past Philip's job so they can build a life together.
Philip is a true gentleman in every sense and Jenny maybe a little nieve but when she is with Philip, she shines.
For adults and teens alike, this book will "Linger" long after you have finished.

This was one of the first romance novels I ever read, and these many years later (and after many, many re-reads), it is still one of the funniest and sweetest of all the romances! Tom and Sharon had a winning team and I can honestly recommend all of their books--buy them if you can--but this was my "first love" and still has the power to enchant and entrance!

When her friends suggested a night out at the popular Cougar Club, shy and timid librarian Jennifer Hamilton thought it would be fun and exciting. She had no idea just what sort of club it was until she stepped into the place and saw some of the merchandise sold in the gift shop. Any lingering illusions were dashed when the show started and the male dancer started stripping down to nothing. Fainting from the horrified embarrassment was a serious risk, especially when the one man who had caught her eye when she first sat down, a man she thought was a classically beautiful specimen of manhood...but just the sound man, turns out to be the headline act. Mortified and nearly undone when he tries to get a kiss from her as part of his stage show, Jennifer rebuffs his advances and struggles to make it through the traumatic evening.

Phillip Brooks was irresistibly drawn to the timid woman with the large, helpless eyes. He didn't know her name, didn't know where she lived, but among a sea of clamoring women, she was like an oasis of purity and that lure filled him with a deep desire to have her in his bed. It was pure happenstance that their paths crossed again mere days after the night he saw her at the club. Either that, or very good luck. Finding out her name and where she worked gave him every opportunity to pursue the desire and yearning that filled him from the moment their eyes met.

She is a unique and precious gift to a complex and guarded man, but their love may be doomed to failure. She is an innocent, and he, most assuredly, is not.

This Loveswept Classic Romance, originally published in 1983 and now being released in electronic format, is a beautifully written tale by writing pair Sharon & Tom Curtis. It is truly a gem in romance fiction.

Back in the 80's, I read a lot of Loveswepts, and liked them much better than Harlequin Romances. I found them to be truly as their tagline described as "Love stories you'll never forget, by authors you'll always remember." I had my favorites, and to this day remember most of them. This book, "Lightning That Lingers" still stands as far and away the best of the lot. It was the sweetest love story I've ever read, and featured a couple I could relate to and root for. I was thrilled to find it for the Kindle. The mark of a good story is it's timelessness, and this one wears its age lightly. It wasn't that hard to return to an 80's mindset, in fact I found it refreshing. It is rather short, compared to others in the line, but that is due to the gifted team of Sharon and Tome Curtis. Not one word is wasted, and each one is evocative and weaves its magic. Looking forward to revisiting other favorites!
