Overview

Heiress Lucinda Hollander is in something of a bind. After being proposed to by a man in a Bozo the Clown suit—who jams a ring on her finger the size of Gibraltar and then disappears—she's accused of a murder she didn't commit and is forced to go on the lam. Although she's never touched a dust mop, never mind used one, she hides out as Lucy French, housekeeper, on an elegant estate far from the scene of the crime. Hey, she knows her way around big houses, and making floors sparkle sure beats making license plates.

She finds more than she bargained for in the servants’ quarters, however, not the least of which is Max Hogan, the car guy. He’s gorgeous and sexy, and, wow, does he know how to work with his hands. But he’s more than a little silent about his past, which makes Lucy wonder what he’s up to—and what will happen when he discovers her own secrets. Throw in a fiery nanny, a scandalous horse breeder, and a lonely little girl, and Lucy has more than enough to take her mind off her troubles. Until one of those troubles becomes falling in love with Max. How will she ever be able to put things to rights?

And how can she get that darned ring off her finger...?

    Poorly formatted

    This eBook is a complete mess. Not professionally produced. I guess you get what you pay for.

    Bevarly's Sexy Tribute to Romantic Classics

    The Ring on Her Finger, Elizabeth Bevarly's Valentine to the romantic comedy films of the 1930's and 1940's, is a winner! She blends humor and sexual tension with deceptive ease and treats the reader to two sets of appealing heroes and heroines in this entertaining romance set in the Kentucky horse country. The list of characters: Lucy Hollander, a dyslexic heiress on the run from a bum rap, and Max Hogan, a retired race car driver with a misguided commitment to self-denial, go from smoldering looks to burning up the sheets. But their respective secrets can't stay hidden forever. Rosemary Shaughnessy, a sweet Irish nanny, and Nathaniel Finn, the "Bad Boy of the Thoroughbred Racing Set," come together through a gambling bet reminiscent of the classic romantic musical, "Guys and Dolls." Rosemary is the perfect woman to reform the "Bad Boy," but will she abandon the task once she learns about the bet? Elizabeth Bevarly's clever wordplay makes the book a fun read, and her characters make it a keeper. If I could change anything about the book, I would have a different cover, possibly a cartoon cover -- one that highlighted the fact that this is another of Bevarly's wonderful romantic comedies. If you can't get enough of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers musicals or Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy comedies, this book has the happy ending for you!

    wild contemporary romantic suspense

    Bored at the Wemberly Masque even with four police cars entering the driveway, Lucinda Hollander searches for her beau Archie Conlon. To her surprise, Archie, in his Bozo the Clown wardrobe places a ring on Lucinda¿s finger. Before she can regain her equilibrium and remove the too small ring, Archie jumps through a window. The police arrest Lucinda for the murder of George Jacobs, though she insists she has never heard of the man. Rather than do the rationale thing and go with the cops, Lucinda jumps through the same window that her fiancé used as his exit. Lucinda who has never worked in her life disguises herself as Lucy French, obtaining employment as a housekeeper to a wealthy Kentucky family. However, if her poor work habits don¿t unmask her, her growing feelings for Max ¿car guy¿ Hogan will for she is falling in love with the racing car driver. Readers who enjoy a wild contemporary romantic suspense with the emphasis on laughter will clearly want to read THE RING ON HER FINGER. The story line never takes itself serious even when Lucy finds herself in trouble and on the lam. The secondary characters provide the fullness that enable fans to appreciate the antics of the lead female character and the bewilderment of the prime male hunk who feels as if he was hit by a vehicle at a 100 MPH upon meeting Lucy. Though their relationship takes a secondary seat to humor and the murder subplot, Elizabeth Bevarly provides a fun frolic for fans of the sub-genre. Harriet Klausner
