    Paranormal fun in the Alaskan wilderness!

    Rachel Wood has inherited a B&B from her Great Great Aunt Gertrude in, of all places, the Alaskan wilderness. Working as a muralist in LA and living paycheck to paycheck, Rachel decides she¿ll go to Alaska and check out the B&B, see what is has to offer maybe even sell it. Rachel thanks her lucky stars that her best friend¿s brother, Kellen McInty, was able to go with her. After a harrowing, white-knuckled arrival in a float plane, and being left in the middle of nowhere by a pilot who apparently believes that a successful flight means landing with both wings intact, Rachel and Kellen hike their way to the B&B. The strange characters and even more strange happenings eventually push Rachel and Kellen together, and once Rachel begins to see things as she never has before, she begins to wonder why she has never seen Kel for the man he truly is.***** Kellen has loved Rachel for what seems like forever, and being thrown together with her in such close quarters in the plane and later in her aunt¿s cottage, is almost more than he can resist. He is determined to keep her at arms¿ length, no easy feat given how she in all of her glorious girliness, is afraid of her own shadow and is constantly plastering her gorgeous self to him. Kel doesn¿t know what to think about the weird goings-on at the B&B, the two on-site caretakers and two visitors who put the s-t-r-a-n-g-e- in strange, but he¿s determined to get to the bottom of their bizarre behavior.***** Rachel and Kellen are so wonderful for each other that readers will be crossing their fingers for them to get together. The secondary characters and their motives are questionable to say the least, but you can¿t help but care for them and want them to all be happy. Excepting the bad guys that is ¿ but with that being said, who would ever have expected pirates to show up in the middle of Alaska?***** Jill Shalvis has outdone herself with the humor in this book - and as for first person writing? I¿m a full-fledged convert and will never reject another book written in this style.

    Funny and sexy romance

    Out Of This World by Jill Shalvis is a wonderfully funny and wickedly sexy tale. ________________ Artist Rachel Wood has inherited a B & B from a distant relative. Problem is the place is in Alaska of all places. Rachel enlists the help of her best friends brother Kellan McInty to go with her to check the inn out. Hideaway B & B is deep in no mans land and for a city girl like Rachel it¿s a shocker. ___________________ Rachel and Kellan decide to explore around the place and something very strange happens. Rach can now see through things and Kel has gone all supermanish. Getting to the bottom of these bizarre goings on test their patience. Plus all of sudden these two friends can¿t keep their hands off each other. ___________________ Out Of This World delivers a funny, quirky and hotter then hot romance. Both Rach and Kel give their take on things and that really made it an enjoyable read. Added to this mix are the employees, guests of the inn and some out of this world pirates that really up the laughs. This book was such a treat to read, made me laugh out loud so many times. The romance is top notch and it¿s a joy to watch friends become so much more.

    Late Great-Great Aunt Gertrude bequests her Hideaway B&B to Rachel Wood. That would be a nice windfall for the Los Angeles resident as it is just outside a preserve only this inn is just outside the Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska. Still though Alaska is cold, Rachel decides to see her new holding, but needs someone to hold her hand while she does so. Her best friend Dot McInty cannot leave her day job so she sends her brother Kellen, a dolphin trainer at Sea World who communicates better with animals than humans.--------------- At the Hideaway, Rachel finds a competent staff awaits her starting with a chef who cannot cook and a tour guide who gets lost easily. Whether it was the lightning that hit Rachel or the moose that tried to hit Rachel, she suddently finds herself attracted to Kel, her brainac hero. To her shock he reciprocates proving he knows how to communicate one kiss at a time.---------------- This novel is a zany Alaskan romance with a touch of the supernatural to enhance the tale. The story line switches perspective between the lead duet so that the audience obtain varying he said she said viewpoints on the same event. Though that tends to slow down the plot, Jill Shalvis rules with this way OUT OF THIS WORLD tale.--------------- Harriet Klausner
