    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    Sexton St. Croix lives the life of the privileged and wealthy. He works hard as the heir to the St. Croix fortune, spearheaded by its Cruise Line. He plays even harder-women aren't hard to come by when you're good-looking, charming, and ungodly rich. <BR/><BR/>For Bree Emery, living the life of a gifted psychic isn't always charmed. She works a lot, plays a little, and her dwindling bank account forces her to take just about any job that comes along. That's how she ends up on the SS Majestic, walking into the owner's suite to meet a man wearing nothing but boxers adorned with hamburgers and french fries, and the word supersized emblazoned on the fly. <BR/><BR/>Some girls might be shocked. Some guys might be embarrassed. Sex and Bree, who are anything but the embarrassingly shockable type, take it all in stride. <BR/><BR/>There's a ghost haunting the SS Majestic, and it's not your average, run-of-the-mill type ghost. Oh, no. This cruise ship is haunted by one Miss Daisy Alton, a woman who died long before her time in the swinging Jazz era of the early 1920's. <BR/><BR/>Daisy was a flapper, a gay-hearted, outgoing, exuberant woman who performed at small-time clubs and speakeasies to her hearts content. But aboard the SS Majestic, Daisy met her match in a wealthy man who vowed to love her for eternity. Although it was sure to invoke a scandal, she agreed to marry her love, only to be gunned down, along with the regal Randolph St. Croix, by a cunning killer. The murder of St. Croix was staged to look like a love triangle gone wrong, and Daisy was branded a murderess. No way was this feisty flapper going to leave this ship until everyone knew the truth. <BR/><BR/>For Sexton, that means hiring Bree to rid his cash cow of the flamboyant ghost. For Bree, it means helping Daisy prove that she didn't murder Randolph, and setting her soul free. <BR/><BR/>The passion, romance, tempers, and arguments that ensue, only add to this delectable story of ghosts and passion that refuses to be denied. CRAZY FOR YOU is a delightful story that will have you laughing out loud, and wishing for all you're worth that Daisy gets the justice she deserves. And if Bree and Sex do a little investigating into that blatant claim of supersized along the way, it just makes the story even more devilish.

    Three great romances in one outstanding high seas adventure

    Kate Angell has quickly become one of my ¿old¿ favorites, with her mesmerizing romance Crazy For You. Expecting the love affair between Sexton St. Croix and Bree Emery, I was taken on a slow and sultry cruise through the oftentimes rough waters of their passion, attraction and a past that consummated their present with a wave of lies and love denied¿but that is just one of the three powerful romances on board this ship. Clever boxers, a great body, heart and soul bared naked for the world to see is what ¿Sex¿ has to offer the only women to hold his interest outside a bedroom. Bree, a clairsentient, has her own hands and heart full when she discovers that Sex¿s experience with women would qualify him as a sensual psychic, although he doesn¿t believe a word she tells him about his resident ghost, Miss Daisy Alton. Sex and Bree¿s shipboard romance is no fling on the high seas and they quickly find out how murder, power and wealth can hinder a heart¿s desire when the Majestic¿s sordid past starts to unravel in front of them and the other passengers. Miss Daisy has finally found a friend among the living, but will Bree be able to stay alive long enough to clear the flapper-ghost¿s name? Sex¿s hatred of the ghost stands between and Bree like a line drawn in the sand, but will he accept the truth that could negate all that he has been raised to believe? Daisy might be dead, but she¿s still quite lively and has plenty of spunk and sass left to help inspire a few others enjoy what she was denied so many years ago. Refreshing, powerful and filled with a wonderful sense of ¿who done it,¿ Angell¿s Crazy For You has made me crazy for more of her stories. Beautifully told, delightfully scripted and creatively woven in such a way as to remind us that great romance is a thing we should all seek to find, enjoy and celebrate...even if you¿re dead.

    Great book!

    I had purchased this book with the idea of reading it over my summer vacation. Then I made the mistake of opening it, and the next thing I knew, I'd finished it one day! I loved it. A wonderfully written story about love lost and found. Three love stories roll effortlessly with a terrific blend of humor, passion and grace. Awesome!

    Outstanding!

    Back in 1925 Randolph St. Croix, owner of the luxury liner 'SS Magestic', jilted his fiancé for a poor flapper named Daisy Alton. History claimed Daisy killed Randolph, within her cabin, before committing suicide. The family heirloom, a six carat fire opal encircled by diamonds, that Randolph had recently presented to Daisy was never found. Nor was the gun Daisy supposedly used for her ghastly crime. Since that cruise, no one would book passage due to Daisy's ghost. The ship was put into dry dock ... for eighty years. .............................. Sexton St. Croix was putting the ship back out to sea. However, Daisy kept scaring off the guests and the crew. In an attempt to rid his haunted liner of Daisy, Sexton has billed a cruise as a five day psychic cruise. The only reputable clairsentient aboard is Bree Emery. Sexton settles Bree into Daisy's cabin, 7001, on the seventh floor. (It is the only part of the ship that no one could seem to renovate.) ............................ Sexton despises Daisy for killing his great-great uncle and refuses to believe the ghost is innocent. But Bree knows upon contact that Daisy did NOT kill Randolph. In order to set Daisy free, Bree must figure out who killed the star-crossed couple and then prove it. Hard to do when Bree gets visions from touching, because every time Sexton barely even touches her Bree is set aflame. ............................................. ***** Author Kate Angell has created a romantic comedy with paranormal activity to liven up the scenes in this outstanding novel. Daisy is a ghost that you cannot help but love! There is a great sub plot romance with Sexton's sister and his bodyguard as well. Then there are all the other 'psychics' on board to stir up some trouble. This gem is not to be missed! Outstanding! *****

    Sensational ¿ Kate Angell Shines!

    Already known for her sizzling hot and highly original tales, Angell outdoes herself with Crazy For You. Pulling in her readers from the very first line, she weaves a web of brilliantly-spun magic that enchants and captivates. A romantic adventure at sea, this is the story of Sexton St. Croix, a man who has everything except the one woman who makes life meaningful and Bree Emery, an endearing and uniquely talented heroine whose special gift lets her unlock not only the mysteries of the past but also Sexton¿s well-guarded heart. Sexy, hilarious, and deeply touching, in Crazy For You, Angell skillfully tells not one but three beautiful romances, each one intrinsically interwoven with the others to create an incredibly satisfying reading experience. Filled with love, passion, dark secrets and the charm of the paranormal, this winner is fast-paced and brims with walk-off-the-page characters so real you¿ll feel you know them and so much lush and authentic tropical atmosphere you¿ll be persuaded to call a travel agent and book a cruise on Sexton¿s Majestic. You may also want to join me in encouraging the author to start up a sideline designing men¿s boxer shorts, an endeavor that would surely bring her a mint. But above all, it is Daisy, the 1920¿s flapper, who will steal your heart and have you rooting for her - even long after you've read the last line. As someone who rarely has time to read for pleasure, I must say that Crazy For You consumed me. Made me laugh out loud and cry. This is definitely one to put at the top of your must-read list! Go Daisy!

    Crazy for You

    My little sister sent me Angell's CALDER'S ROSE and DRIVE ME CRAZY and insisted I read them. I did and what a delight. She didn't have to send me CRAZY FOR YOU because I was waiting for this one, now being a die-hard Angell Fan. All three books are special and have their own 'personality', but CFY is special. All are keepers, but this book is so much fun, so sexy, with secondary characters as strong and compelling as the hero and heroine. But the one who steals the show is Daisy the Flapper! This is a 'feel good' book that delivers and and leaves you smiling and happy at the end. My only complaint is we get one Angell book a year it seems, so I will have to wait another year for a book from a very talented writer!

    Crazy for You

    I really liked Calder's Rose, but then I read Drive Me Crazy and I loved it even more. Well, I just finished Crazy For You and I have to say I love it even more than Drive Me Crazy! Angell has a beautiful way of constructing a story, letting you really know her characters. The characters act in a logical fashion, as if she breathes life into her creations and then stand back and lets them come alive. This book really stole my heart. I love 'Sex' and Bree, but the story also has his sisters and his right hand man having one really hot romance, too! But Daisy is the heart-stealer. Her gentle spirit made this book a keeper. One I will read again.

    crazy paranormal romantic romp

    In 1925 on the luxurious SS Majestic that he owns, Randolph St. Croix breaks off his engagement to Eloise Hogue to propose to flapper Daisy Alton. She accepts his family heirloom, a six carat fire opal in the center of diamonds, as an engagement gift. Not long afterward, Daisy allegedly killed Randolph and committed suicide. No gun was found and the SS Majestic went into mothballs as no one wanted to ride a vessel allegedly haunted by the killer ghost. --- The great nephew of Randolph, Sexton St. Croix, takes the SS Majestic out to sea on a five day psychic cruise that he figures will end the nonsense. He brings with him one supposedly reputable ESP whiz, Bree Emery, who resides in Daisy's cabin, unchanged since 1925. Though attracted to the skeptical Randolph especially after viewing his homage to the Big Mac, following contact with Daisy, Bree believes the ill fated dancer and her beloved were murdered by a third party. To free the ghost, she must solve the homicides while other psychics dance the high wire of shams. Randolph scoffs at her firmly convinced Daisy murdered his relative. --- No one does crazy romantic romps that have readers laughing one moment and feeling the passion the next than Kate Angell does. Her latest tale is a fabulous paranormal romance with a wonderful historical who-done-it. The story line is hilarious and ardent from the Big Mac to the ghostly high wire as a cruse ship has not ever been quite as majestic as this one. Fans will treasure the modern day romance between the clairvoyant and the skeptic, and the love story that transcends time.--- Harriet Klausner

    one of the best romances for 2005!

    In Calder Rose, Kate Angell's bright and charming debut book, we were treated to the hero's t-shirts with zany slogans. With her newest novel, Crazy For You, readers are enchanted with an even more laugh provoking device - the hero's silk boxer shorts! Bree Emery is nearly speechless when she's first brought aboard the cruise liner, Majestic, to meet the owner, one sexy Sexton St. Croix. The super stud darling of the paparazzi, they'd dubbed him 'Sex' at the age of sixteen and he's done everything to live up to that reputation. There he is, standing in a pair of brown boxers with images of McDonalds' fries, Big Macs and Cokes all over his boxer shorts and the words 'Supersize Me' on the fly. From that point on, Angell is in firm control of this utterly funny, laugh out loud book that is also very well crafted with strong research, vivid characters that leap off the pages, and an underlying poignant touch that marks this book as one of the best for 2005. The premise is wonderfully charming. Sex St. Croix owns a whole fleet of cruise ships, but the Majestic was special. It was also haunted. Put into dry dock after the murder-suicide of Sex's uncle Randolph by a Roaring Twenties flapper named Daisy, everyone now firmly believes Daisy haunts the ship - why it was put in dry dock after the sensational deaths years ago. Everyone claimed Daisy was still around and not above pitching a hissy fit now and again, which sent guests running. On the anniversary of the St. Croix line, Sex is determined to either exorcise the ship or have it cut up piece-by-piece for salvage. To that end, he's scheduled a five-day cruise for psychics and has offered a one hundred thousand dollars finder's fee to the one who chases Daisy away. Originally, he hired only Bree, since she was the 'real thing', but Sex's sister Cecelia opened bookings to any Tarot toting self-proclaimed paranormal pundit. What makes this book work so well is the writer's no-nonsense belief that Daisy indeed haunts the Majestic and Bree is a true psychic. By stating that clearly and up front, Angell permits the reader to go into that story with the same unshakable foundation. Bree and Sex instantly shoot sparks off each other, but Bree, whose primary input is the sense of touch, refuses to touch Sex with a ten-foot poll - well always with something between their skin! Bree soon is captivated with the funny, but poignant spirit of the beautiful flapper Daisy, and becomes convinced the tales about her being a gold-digger and a murderer is erroneous. Setting about to prove to Sex Daisy was wronged causes problems between them since Sex is convinced Daisy killed his great-great uncle and wants her ghost gone. A secondary romance between Cecelia and Sex's Man Friday, Jackson Kyle also heats up the pages. Cecelia has been in love with Jackson for ten years, but the man has stubbornly tried to keep his distance, believing the beautiful heiress too high above his working man's status. Their battles for and against their love is as heart stealing as Bree's and Sex's coming to terms with what's happening between them. Backing up the vibrant hero and heroine and secondary characters, is the wacky 'cast' such as Sex's great-great grandfather Ramsey St. Croix, his role-playing sex-crazed nurse Mimi, Zara with her Ouija board predictions and Shay the crystal ball psychic scammer. Angell shows a strong, deft craft in creating these well drawn people, characters she thoroughly understands, breathing life, love and quirkiness into their souls. The writing will have you amazed at the strong research into the flapper era, breathless at the passion not only between the two couples, but the gentle growing love shown in flashbacks between Daisy and Randolph, and have you laughing so hard it hurts. It's a ballet dance upon the high wire done with the incisive genius of this rising star in Paranormal Romance. It just does not get any better than this.
