Throwback Thursdays

Kiss an Angel
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Released Feb 1st, 1996
384 Pages

Pretty, flighty Daisy Devreaux can either go to jail or marry the mystery man her father has chosen for her. Arranged marriages don't happen in the modern world, so how did the irrepressible Daisy find herself in this fix?

Alex Markov, as humorless as he is deadly handsome, has no intention of playing the loving bridegroom to a spoiled little feather-head with champagne tastes. He drags Daisy from her uptown life to a broken down traveling circus and sets out to tame her to his ways.

But this man without a soul has met his match in a woman who's nothing but heart. Before long, passion will send them flying sky high without a safety net... risking it all in search of a love that will last forever.

Oh My....Talk about a TEAR JERKER......I bawled while reading this book.  It was so emotional, and heart wrenching.  You know its a GREAT read when your chest is tight and you are physically hurting for these people....It was one of those.

Love, LOVE Daisy!  She is innocent, without being stupid.  And she is no pushover...that's for sure.  You can say she GROWS UP throughout the book.  She truly finds herself, and starts respecting herself, demanding respect from others as well. 

And Alex.....Oh Alex, our sexy Russian.  I so enjoyed watching him fall in love and let someone love him back (well....he kinda screws that one up at first).  I love how much Daisy gets under his skin, at first, just annoying him with her spoiled behavior, but then with her stubborn head.  There relationship was explosive at times....BUT SOOOOO worth the read, and the reread...over and over.

This is one of my TOP S.E.P books of all time!!  So y'all need to pick it up, download it...TODAY!!

 Her Shoulders slumped, and he knew he'd won, but he felt no satisfaction.

"I don't love you anymore, " she whispered. "I don't love you at all."

His throat closed. "It's all right, sweetheart. I love you enough for both of us."

I love Throwback Thursdays!

I've read KISS AN ANGEL so many times and still I sob my heart out in several scenes. Another one of my badly dog-eared well-loved keeper books!

I really love SEP's and Kiss An Angel is such a fun story.

Have you read "Honest Illusions" by Nora Roberts? Like "KAA," it is also a sweet and fun romance. Instead of the carnival/circus, the leads are magicians.
