Amazon.com Review

Sloan Fairchild has made a rousing success of her elegant San Francisco bed-and-breakfast inn, but her love life has suffered--until her best friend's fiance comes to stay for a month. Should Sloan betray her friend, or deny her heart? A deeply romantic story of a woman forced to examine her conscience and make a hard decision. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Library Journal

Richard Poe gives an expressive reading of this popular romance novel set in San Francisco. Sloan Fairchild has buried herself in running her bed-and-breakfast, afraid to open herself to more hurt after neglect by her parents and abandonment by her fiance. Carter Madison, her best friend's fiance, arrives, looking for a quiet place to finish his novel?and they find their attraction for one another impossible to deny. Finding happiness for themselves without betraying Sloan's friend seems an impossible dilemma. But never fear, the author will work it out. She gives us credible characters, a good many erotic love scenes, and the atmosphere of a seductive city. Poe handles emotionally loaded dialog and sexy scenes with grace and style, and has a deep, suggestive voice. An excellent production; recommended for fiction collections.?Melody Moxley, Rowan P.L., Salisbury, NC

Sloan Fairchild has spent her entire life feeling worthless. It happens with her family and anyone else she loves. She decided to put herself into her B&B. She was content until Carter Madison came into her life. He was trying to finish his novel, and needed some peace and quiet to complete it. They both felt the attraction, but he was her friend Alicia's fiancé. As they both try to fight their feelings, they fight a losing battle.

This is one of the first Sandra Brown books I read, and find myself pulling it out to reread it again and again. It is a classic story.

Sloane Fairchild has been hurt many times in her life, and has locked her feelings deep inside her, pouring all her energies into opening a bed-and-breakfast inn near San Francisco. Everything she is as a woman is channeled into the inn, which she perfects down to the last detail.
All is going perfectly. Sloane is able to successfully deny her more sensual needs, and take pleasure in her growing business. Until an incredible guest shows up--a man who literally takes her breath away, fight it as she will. Carter turns out to be a best-selling author who needs a hideaway to escape his hectic life and meet the looming deadline for his next book. Sloane is viscerally attracted to him, but fiercely fights it down. Not only is she afraid of involvement, this man is strictly off limits. He is her best friend's fiance.
As the attraction between Sloane and Carter grows despite their best efforts, so does their guilt. Carter is not a lothario, but he is engaged for all the wrong reasons: his fiancee and her two small children have been left behind by the death of his best friend. Lending support and assistance, he found himself offering more. Now that he has met Sloane, he sees the error he has made, but it is too late. He feels he must honor his commitment.
Sloane, now desperately in love, feels the same, and it is almost unbearable. When the two finally make love, having lost their battle to stay apart, the reader is torn as well. Obviously, Sloane and Carter belong together, but is that fair?
The reader is kept on tenterhooks until almost the last page, and the ending is not predictable. This is a lovely romance, one with a conscience, and I recommend it highly.

This is actually the first book I've thrown away. The characters were shallow, the plot was silly, just no substance. They were ready to jump each other right when they met! I just didn't get it, thought it was really a soft porn story, way too much sex!

"Breakfast in Bed" is very special; because to me, the way these relationships always end up is in misery and all those bad feelings.
Sloan Fairchild is the owner of this elegant bed-and-breakfast inn, and it's called Fairchild House. Sloan focuses all her energy into Fairchild House and in a way Fairchild House is her sanctuary from the outside world, because in the outside world, Sloan has been hurt too many times and she's sort of hiding from it. Sloan promises her best friend, Alicia to let Alicia's fiancé live in Fairchild House for a month. It was a big mistake... because as soon as Sloan opened that door to let Carter Madison into that house, Alicia's fiancé, there was instant sexual tension.
Carter Madison came to Fairchild House, to work on the last chapter of his book. What he didn't expect was to feel the passion and desire for his fiancée's best friend.
Sloan and Carter try to ignore the mutual passion and desire, because of Alicia, but it's very hard. The time comes when Carter ahs to leave, to marry Alicia, but would Carter be able to leave and fulfill his wedding vows to Alicia?
I love this book because of the strong will power Carter and Sloan shows, to restrain themselves of their passion and desire. I think it's really magical and it's really good. I stayed up until very late to finish "Breakfast in Bed" and it was worth it.
