Overview

Proper Boston Brahmin Juliet Rose Astor Lowell doesn't want her body guarded by anyone while she's in New Orleans for the grand opening of Daddy's new hotel—especially not by macho cop Beau Dupree. He's too big, too pushy, too virile, too . . . everything! His shameless, hungry-eyed gaze shakes her carefully cultivated decorum. But Juliet is a Lowell—and there's no way she's ever going to lose control!

Beau has more important things to do than babysit a beautiful Yankee rich girl. By driving the well-mannered socialite beyond the bounds of her good-girl restraints, he figures he can get himself pulled off of the assignment. But who would have thought that real passion sizzled beneath Juliet's polish—or that when she lets her hair down, she just might prove to be more woman than Beau can handle?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this contemporary romance, Juliet Rose Astor Lowell hopes to leave behind the social constraints of her blue-blooded Boston upbringing when she heads to New Orleans to open the Garden Crown, the newest hotel in a chain owned by her family. Shortly after her arrival, the prim 32-year-old receives a life-threatening letter. She refuses, however, to let the letter put a damper on her opportunity to experience real freedom--at least until, at her father's insistence, NOPD officer Beau Dupree is assigned as her bodyguard for the duration of her stay. Dupree, who spent the past decade raising three sisters after his parents' untimely death, is equally unhappy about the situation and has better things to do than baby-sit a grown woman, especially a snobby Yankee. Andersen (Baby I'm Yours) captures the undeniable attraction of opposites in Dupree and Lowell's steamy relationship. (Mar.)

Read an Excerpt

A wily fox uses his formidable cunning to outsmart three feeble-minded farmers, who resort to extreme tactics to protect their chickens in director Wes Anderson's animated adaptation of the popular Roald Dahl children's book. For 12 years, Mr. and Mrs. Fox (voices of George Clooney and Meryl Streep) have lived a peaceful life in the wilderness with their son, Ash (voice of Jason Schwartzman). Shortly after their young nephew Kristofferson (voice of Eric Anderson) arrives for a visit, Mr. Fox's long-suppressed animal instincts begin to take over and the faithful family man resorts back to his old ways as a cunning chicken thief, endangering not only his family but the entire animal community as well. When evil farmers Boggis, Bunce, and Bean force the animals underground in a desperate attempt to capture the audacious Mr. Fox, dwindling food supplies force the frightened animals to band together in one last attempt to fight for the land that is rightfully theirs. {|Bill Murray|}, {|Michael Gambon|}, {|Willem Dafoe|}, and {|Owen Wilson|} provide additional voices.

This book was wonderful from to finish. Very strong and keeps the pace going all the way through until the end. I loved all of it. Susan Andersen really is a great author and I look forward to reading some more of her books.

I would not recommend this book. I did not like the southern dialect and had to reread some paragraphs since it did not make sense. The main characters and storyline is easily foregettable. There was only one character who is not forgettable and that is the "panty snatcher". If it was not for this character I would have given the review 2 stars.

Our hero had a problem remembering our heroine's name, so he called her "Honey chil." It made me want to scream. The plot was thin.

I really like Susan Andersen because her books usually have a good balance of humor, romance, and action. But, this one just didn't do it for me. I liked how she developed the main character and how opposites were supposed to attract, but I still felt like their chemistry was somehow lacking; maybe she developed the main character too well and made the story seem a tad boring and cliche. I adored the relationship with between the main male character and his family, but I was not as drawn to his relationship with the female character. The sexual tension in Susan Andersen's other books were so much hotter. Overall, this book was okay. I wouldn't miss or remember it.
