Savage Courtship Vanessa Could Kick Herself It Had Been A Simple Misunderstandinghow Dared Benedict Savage Imply That She D Deliberately Set Out To Seduce Him The Very Idea Was Outrageous He Simply Wasn T Her Type No Matter That He Was The Last Word In Cool, Suave Sophistication He Was Also Her Boss, And A Formidable Sexual Predator In The Bargain But Vanessa Had No Intention Of Falling Prey To His Dark Charm Had Benedict Met His Match At Last I really enjoyed this story It was great fun with an unusual hero and distinctive heroine I really liked both characters and the back and forth between them I usually enjoy this author s stories She isn t afraid to have different heroes from the usual alpha jerks The courtship was very much a two steps forward, one step back with a lot of humour. I read this book atleast 10 years ago and I remember it made a big impact on me, not least for the fact that the hero is physically shorter than the heroine in all the books that I have read and I have read a LOT that s never happened 2 The butler did it but the butler is female I hadn t thought about a female butler 3 Guy wears glasses as someone who wears them too I loved that perspective 4 You can just tell its going to last.its not wham bam, thank you ma am stuff that you usually find elsewhere I highly recommend it Benedict Savage is a successful architect, going on 34 when that vague sense of dissatisfaction that has been plaguing him for quite sometime makes him seek refuge in Whitefield House, a property that he had inherited from an uncle who had left it to him, a property that had come along with his deceased uncle s female butler Vanessa Flynn.Finding a mystery woman in Benedict s bed is what kick starts the story, a woman who disappears by the next morning leaving Benedict flummoxed by the whole thing until he discovers who it is that had been gracing his bed that night Thus follows a series of twists and turns, a lot of advancing on Benedict s part and retreating on Vanessa s part which culminates of course in a happily ever after.Susan Napier has some very good Harlequin romances out there, in fact she is one of those Harlequin authors who is on my auto buy list The aspects that worked for me includes the hero his intensity is hard not to take notice of Then there is the novelty of a heroine who is taller than the hero in the story as most romance readers know, that is something that rarely happens in a romance.The sexual tension though was a vital presence in the story, I got a bit tired of the continuous back and forth drama that was happening and in the end skim read through chunks of the story later on Recommended for die hard fans of Harlequin romances Rating 3.5 5Caliber SEAL FAVORABLE READ 3.5 starsAnother fun read from Susan Napier This time the H fell for his butler, Flynn This causes a scandal and Flynn needed to be coerced into believing that there was true love between them There was a ghost maybe , a female butler, a H who was shorter than the h, an OW who really wasn t really an OW but wouldn t give up trying to win the H, lots of witty banter, and best of all, 1935 Duesenberg convertible coup A little something for everyone. I read this because it s on a few Best Harlequins type lists I wasn t impressed, but maybe I just don t like it when the heroine is ian and taller than the hero Though this book did have its funny moments. Savage Courtship is the story of Vanessa and Benedict.When Benedict returns back to the inn he owns, he never expects to find a nymph goddess sleeps on his bed, who he mistakes as a birthday gift from his friend She s gone next morning, and he relentless looks for her However he can t help notice that his demure housekeeper Vanessa is an efficient,strong woman and manages everything without a hitch.An unlikely friendship blooms while Vanessa tries to hide how she got drunk and collapsed in his bed, Ben s attraction to her grows At the same time she is also trying to woo her long time friend Richard.Soon Vanessa s past is revealed, and Ben tries to pursue her while fighting her demons.The first half was engaging but the plot drifted away in the second half to the point I felt bored I did like the reverse bed scene in the end though.Safe2.5 5 Vannessa was an extremely good Butler she had to take care of a great and alone house so she used to sleep in a different room each day as a way to mantein each room appropriately aired One night, her boss returned without telling her and fin a very sexy blond who he thought was his birthday present The next morning, he wanted to know who was the sexy blonde Afraid of his reaction, she keeped her identity as a secret.Benedict felt very confused He was sure he had a beautiful and unconscious woman in his bed that night but in the morning the Sleeping Beauty was missed He had to know who is she, and he was sure his butler had the answer I love the misunderstanding in the plot, but I whish her identity remain secret a little bit because was so funny Light fun read by Susan Napier I really enjoyed this because none of the characters were cast in the stereotypical mode It s been on my TBR pile for ages and something made me decide to pick it up this weekend I am so glad that I did The heroine was his butlertall, beautiful, buxom and very smart The hero was shorter with glasses, but sexy as sin She wants to hide all her secrets, he won t let her I liked the way the relationship developed and I found myself laughing out loud as she led him a very merry dance Great ending.with a hero who knows exactly what he wants. 4.5 stars
