Overview

When Ruby Runyon's hot date turns out to be mob-connected and married, her only chance of escape is to crash a swanky party aboard a luxury yacht. The next thing she knows, she's on her way to the Bahamas with nothing but the little black dress on her back. It doesn't help that she's going to be turned away from every port without proof of citizenship, which just didn't quite fit into her electron-sized cocktail bag.

Enter Cary Grant wannabe Keaton Hamilton Danning the III, former chief adviser to kings, present babysitter of a recalcitrant prince. His job is fixing problems, and Ruby's shouldn't be too big a challenge. But it isn't long before she's turning his well-ordered existence on its head. She's sexy and sassy and just right for passion. But can they possibly jibe the two very different worlds they come from? How can they find their way to each other when they can't even get Ruby home?

    Good book

    It was hard to get into at first but the book was good. The female characters were strong willed. The story ended with love winning out but not without some drama.

    Love on the High Seas

    Elizabeth Bevarly's latest romantic comedy, Take Me, I'm Yours, pays tribute to the irresistible cinematic comedies of the 1940s while offering her 21st century fans the sensuality they've come to expect from her popular novels. The unique setting, a perpetually cruising luxury yacht owned by a dispossessed and dissolute prince, gives a new meaning to the phrase 'Love Boat' and features an eccentric and amusing cast of characters, including one unforgettable canine. The heroine, waitress and aspiring actress Ruby Runyon, sneaks aboard this floating party to avoid a menacing boyfriend. The hero, royal troubleshooter Keaton Hamilton Danning III, attempts to fight his attraction for the intriguing stowaway until he can get her on a plane back to Miami. Together they are reminiscent of Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn, combining the sophisticated sexy bantering of The Philadelphia Story with the laugh-aloud humor of Bringing Up Baby. A secondary romance between Countess Arabella, the prince's unhappy fiancee, and Gus, the yacht's sexy bartender, steams up the pages. Arabella has been reconciled to her destiny -- a loveless marriage with the reprobate prince -- since her parents arranged the marriage when she was a toddler. Gus gets past her icy reserve to the woman beneath and tempts her to break free of her obligations and taste passion for the first time. Once again Elizabeth Bevarly has created a cast of characters who will tickle your funny bone and stay in your mind long after you've finished the book. And her clever word-play makes reading each sentence a joy. This book is a keeper!

    amusing contemporary romance

    Miami waitress Ruby Runyon feels as if a miracle has occurred when Jimmy Golden takes her out on a second date. Ruby gets a lot of first dates, but never seconds because her companions expect her to jump into their bed based on her background, but when she refuses they never return. Dreaming of becoming Mrs. Golden and escaping the trailer park, Ruby learns that Jimmy is married and has mob connections. Needing to flee her date, Ruby crashes a yacht party that leaves for the Bahamas. <P>On the yacht is Keaton Danning, a former advisor to a King and now garbage control expert to the egotistical hedonistic exiled Prince of Pelagia. Keaton finds the stowaway charming and humorous as she spouts nonsense. As they become acquainted on the sea voyage, Ruby and Keaton fall in love. However, he is a blueblood who can trace ancestors forever while her blood contains trailer fumes making genealogists fear what is in her tree. This makes anything permanent seem impossible. <P> TAKE ME, I¿M YOURS is an amusing contemporary romance that fans of jocular tales will enjoy because of the warmth and humor of the charcaters. The key cast members sailing on the yacht feel genuine particularly the bantering between the lead duo mindful of a modern day Gable-Lombard. The support cast, notably the Prince¿s fiancee, provide a unique look at them. Elizabeth Bevarly provides her readers with a wonderful tale that never takes itself seriously even the romance. <P>Harriet Klausner
