Her characters are believable and smart. She relies on good sense and excellent story telling to forward the plot and I can ALWAYS relate to the situations. Susan Johnson ALWAYS puts a delicious tension in her plot that you know will lead to a hot conclusion, but it leads there because that's where the story logically goes. In short, you will enjoy every page - no skipping ahead.

I thought the plot was predictable, which is not a "sin" as long as the journey with the characters is enjoyable, but I didn't like the characters either. Fitz, The Duke of Groveland, is an enterprising, scheming, selfish, entitled aristocrat who is used to getting his way, no matter what, or how much it costs him. Money is no object for him, and morals do not exist. He uses coercion, deception, manipulation..anything, even his own body, to win. Rosalind is a widow who is on the forefront of the suffragette movement. She is progressive, independent to a fault, stubborn and self righteous. When Fitz and Rosalind first meet sparks fly (but not in a good way). Love and Hate are definitely two sides of the same coin for Fitz and Rosalind. I was a little put off at the beginning because of this, but thought that maybe their dialogue and actions towards each other would change as they fell in love, but they didn't. Fitz calls Rosalind a "bi**h" throughout the book, and not in a playful way, but in a derogatory way. Other than their attractiveness to each other I failed to understand what compelled their almost obsessive behavior to have an affair that eventually led to their "falling in love", and I use that term loosely. Their entire relationship is based on sex. I could not comprehend how two people who acted the way they did, used, and treated the other person the way they did, fell in love. Both characters were flawed, and their story lacked any kind of intimate passion. I felt they each had a lot of room to grow, and was willing to accept them as they were written at the beginning, hoping that they would redeem themselves by the end, but it just didn't happen. This book reviewed for Seductive Musings.

Susan Johnson is one of those writers that you either hate or you just love. Not to mention that even if you love Susan Johnson's book, some of her books you just hate or you just love. "Georgous As Sin" is one of those books, I just abso-smurf-ly LOVE. This book is a great book to show case Susan Johnson's ability to write sexy, senuous and funny books. The heroine, Rosalind St. Vincent, is a widow who owns her own sucessful book store in London. This is already unique about his woman. And in the typical, off-beat Susan Johnson book--Rosalind earns additional money by writing porn for the local magazine! How funny is that! This side job plays a big part in the novel. Our sexy handsome Alpha Male is Fitz Monckton, Duke of Groveland. Of course he is a Duke, of course he is sexy, and of course, he always gets his way except when it comes to Mrs. St. Vincent, and her bookstore. You see, she won't sell her store that sits on a very valuable piece of real estate about to become a big development for Groveland. So finally, they meet and the sparks fly albeit neither want to accept it internally. I loved this book because I enjoyed watching Groveland slowly begin to realize that he was in love this woman. He fought it. Boy, he gave it a good try, but in the end, Mrs. St. Vincent won his heart, and vice versa. The entire book is romantic! Yes, it has extremely sexy scene--and hey, I admit it, that IS one of the reasons I love to read a Susan Johnson book--but this book is a winner because it stayed true to its genre--extremely romantic story. If you have never read a Susan Johnson book, this is a great one to start with because she is at her best in this one!!
