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!

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.

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!!!

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!

This is one of those stories that will make you laugh and smile throughout

Tom Brodie has been made partner in a very prestigious law firm he has worked hard to get where is he was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but when the other partners are away Tom is called out to help with one of the top clients and is shocked by what he is asked to do he must stop a marriage that appears to be going to happen to Emerald Carlisle Emmy as she is known to most this is going to be a fun journey for Tom and their first meeting will have you laughing out loud.

Emmy Carlisle is trying very hard to outwit her father she is an heiress and her father does a lot to keep tabs on her and stop her from getting into trouble, but when things go wrong right from the beginning of this plan, Emmy's journey is starting to be a very big roller coaster ride of ups and downs and the unwitting Tom Brodie is pulled into it.

This is such a fun fabulous story from start to finish talk about laugh and smile as Emmy and Tom journey across the UK and France falling just a little bit in love along the way there are many scrapes that Tom has to rescue Emmy from, Emmy and Tom are so alive and real you will feel like you are there with them, truly I can highly recommend this one you will not be sorry it will bring you a few hours of total pleasure and keep you smiling tis one is a total joy to read.

I have embarked on a challenge to read all of Liz Fieldings stories and am enjoying them immensely and lucky me I have a lot to catch up on.
