About the Author

There are bookworms and Bookworms. I am of the second species. Last winter, I decided to (finally) bring some order into the chaos my apartment is and I realized that it would mostly consist in piling all my books in only one room. I tried. I promise. But I simply can’t do it: I have books everywhere; novels, dictionaries even thesaurus lie on nearly each flat surface, including the laundry room. Go figure… Beside books, my house homes two plants which stubbornly refuse to die, an eclectic CDs collection and an even more random choice of DVDs. If I am not at the gym, checking my mail box or wondering where I’ll travel next, it means my restless muses set another attack on me. They tend to do so at the most inappropriate times, both a blessing and a curse. The only way to appease them is to surrender, and make mines Walt Disney words: “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates’ loot on Treasure Island.” Twitter me : ClaudeDancourt Visit the website http://claudedancourt.webs.com/

The author sold me 100% in the romance between the main characters. One reviewer is correct that this is not a 'love at first sight' kind of romance.
The heroine is quite likeable and passionate in her cause. I love that the author was able to make her three dimentional and was able to let me in her previlaged world. Her blind loyalty to her sister and almost passive blindness to her fault - though make sense - is a peeve.
The hero, *sigh* what can I say since he melts my heart one instant and made me want to knock his head the next. I am glad that this attitude was addressed immediately just when his mixed signals started to annoy me. He is presented as a burn-out playboy just ready to be roped in with just the right woman.
Watching the romance blossom between the main characters is like falling in love myself and I love that the author showed that. It's a treat considering a lot of the books I picked up lately adhered to the love at first sight kind of thing that this is a welcome change. The repeated sexual tension is great at first - and though it neatly made the hero a to-die-for man - it became frustrating *grins*.
Secondary characters are as memorable, the villain and friends alike.
A story worth reading mainly because it was well written.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a rather different storyline than usual. I loved the interaction between Arthur and Maya. Arthur's father was such a pig, I disliked him intensely. A very pleasant read. Will look forward to reading more from this author.

I enjoyed this book. There were several unexpected twists to the plot, not what I was expecting. This was a bit different and held my interest from page 1 to the end.

I enjoyed reading this book . Did I miss why Robert disliked Maya so much since he had loved her so much at one time?????
