    • 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 h [...]


    • 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 lasts not wham bam, thank you ma'am stuff that you usua [...]


    • 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 [...]


    • 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 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.


    • 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 coupé. A little something for everyone.


    • "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 i [...]


    • 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 [...]



    • Interesting story this one. Especially enjoyed the ending when Dale took Vanessa to Auckland. They must've gone the long way around since they took three hours and stopped for food just outside of Huntly. (my hometown :) ) Huntly is an hour south of Auckland and Thames is East of Auckland. Normally you don't go anywhere near Huntly to get to Auckland from Thames but loved my little town getting a mention. Love books based in New Zealand.


    • Why 5 stars?Because the h/H are different from the generic. Because the author is a NZer. Because Susan Napier is a favourite in my Harlequin collection. Because I love the thrill of seduction. Because everybody deserves a Happily Ever After.
