In downtown Orlando, Hannah Quarles races out of a church almost knocking over passerby Morgan Webber, who thinks she is a runaway bride as she apologizes and races across the street while car horns explode. However, he reappraises his first impression when no one races out of the church. She takes something from her car and runs back into the church. He follows only to see the elderly bride Miss Beverly needing her pills due to angina. Unable to resist, Morgan is in love although two minutes earlier he would have scorned the notion of at first sight.------------- Morgan begins to court Hannah, but though she seems to like him too, she hides her feelings behind a veneer of cynical acerbic humor. Eventually he gets her to admit she loves him too. They become engaged, but she suffers from commitment phobia so they go for premarital counseling, but will that and his love be enough to persuade Hannah not to become a runaway bride.-------------- Tying heat with jocularity, Janice Maynard provides an engaging contemporary romance in which the hero knows what he wants from their first nudging encounter while the heroine fears what she wants. These two protagonists, supported by a strong secondary cast mostly the energetic geriatric generation, make for a fun time in Orlando.---------------- Harriet Klausner
The latest book by Janice Maynard is By Appointment Only. This is a very hot, erotic read which has been done within an unusual but interesting concept.**********Hannah Quarles and Morgan Webber meet in a very unusual way, but the heat and sparks are evident from the very first. Even though on their first meeting Hannah has told Morgan she doesn't think much of the institution of marriage, Morgan is intrigued with her. After coming to know her he can well understand her reasoning, but feels like he has been handed the world when she agrees to become his fiancée. Getting her to set a wedding date becomes another thing altogether.**********Morgan will do anything to prove to Hannah that things are not always the way her preconceived notions have led her to believe. When Hannah suggests they attend new cutting edge premarital sexual counselling, he is reluctant, but agrees. It is at the initial group meeting that we are introduced to two other couples who each have their own problems and reasons for coming to counselling. The reader is taken on a sensual read as each couple works through their problems, which is an added bonus.**********Hannah has so much baggage entering into this relationship that the reader is pulling for her to realize that she really loves Morgan and that each person is different and she should take a chance. There are bumps along the way, but the question is can they weather Hannah's fears and will she realize that marriage is what you put into it. The secondary characters of the couples add more spice and heat to the book. Hannah's elderly friend, Elda is another secondary character that the reader can't help but love, and someone that Hannah can always count on.**********This is an interesting, hot read from beginning to end. Janice has woven many facets into this story, and I am sure it will appeal to her many readers.
