Overview

Ladies' Man by Suzanne Brockmann

Reissue originally published in 1997

Ivy League college professor Ellen Layne and her two kids are spending the summer in NYC with her very famous uncle, the star of a late night TV talk show. Recently divorced, it's her summer of crazy indulgences-and when she meets Sam Schaefer, a New York police detective who's much too handsome, much too smooth, and much, much too young, she doesn't say no, thinking their steamy encounter in the back of a limo is one-and-done.

But Sam knows what he likes and he wants more. And when he keeps calling, Ellen's Oh, yes becomes a heartfelt No way-he's funny, and smart, and pretty damn perfect, and she knows it won't take much for her to fall for him, hard. He's too handsome, too smooth, and ridiculously young.

But when Ellen's uncle starts getting threatening letters from a clearly unhinged and dangerous stalker, the NYPD is called in and of course Sam's assigned the case. Ellen tries to avoid him, but he's around day and night, and sparks start to fly...

Set in 1997, Ladies' Man is a full length novel of 54K words or 215 pages, originally published in 1997 by Bantam Loveswept.

While waiting she starts a harmless flirtation with a younger man. ______________________ Detective Sam Schaefer, as a kindness to his author friend T.S. Harrison agrees to meet Bob Osbourne¿s Aunt Alma. Sam is drawn to Ellen but she is still gun shy from her painful divorce. _____________________ When Sam is made aware of threats to Ellen, the cop in him takes over. Can he convince her to trust him with her life as well as her heart? ___________________ Though Ladies Man was originally written in 1997, I didn¿t find it dated at all. It was a romance for any time. Its exceptionally written and a delight for any romance fan.

There she spies the ruggedly handsome man standing looking at books by one of her favorite authors. He tries a couple of pick up lines with her after being drawn to her.

Yale Professor Ellen Layne and her TV host Uncle Bob Osborne wait for her Great Aunt Alma to land in New York. Ellen goes to a bookstore where a handsome stranger suggests she read anything by T.S. Harrison before he asks for her number realizing he is ten years younger than her and that she had two teenage children, Jamie and Lydia, she refuses. Not long afterward, the man meets Bob, who thinks he is Harrison. Unable to get a word in otherwise, NYPD Detective Sam Schaeffer is introduced to Alma as her favorite author. Ellen gives him a ride in her uncle¿s Limo where Sam explains that T.S. is his best friend who could not make it, but neither Bob nor Alma would let him speak. Unable to resist, they make love in the back seat of the limo, but afterward she refuses to give him her number as she feels he is too young for her. --- T.S. explains to Bob what happened at the airport Bob still wants the writer to do his biography. Ellen mentions a security breach, death threat letters and obscene calls. T.S. asks Sam to assess the danger. Sam believes the threat is towards Ellen, whose commercial just aired on TV. Later Sam is stunned when he meets her two kids, but handles it gracefully as he becomes their escort while someone dangerous stalks her and her kids. --- The relationship between the lead characters is passionate and adding to the freshness is she is a decade older than he. The support cast is solid as the teens are adjusted and Bob and T.S. are caring souls. The climax though containing a delightful twist and a five degrees spin seems abrupt, but readers will still appreciate this fine romantic suspense. --- Harriet Klausner
