Description

There isn't a woman in town who's immune to the legendary Chandler charm. So far single cop Rick Chandler has managed to fend off the marriage-minded advances of Yorkshire Falls' entire female population. A past mistake has taught him never to put his heart on the line... until he answers the SOS of a real-life runaway bride. In spite of her pearly gown and tiara, Kendall Sutton vows to never wed- — making her the ideal pretend lover who can ward off Rick's legion of admirers. When their passionate charade flames into the real thing, Rick is suddenly thinking about two words that spell forever after — but will Kendall ever say “I do?" Can a woman who's had it with weddings tie the knot with the town's most popular playboy?"

      • content: Carly Phillips, an attorney who tossed away legal briefs in favor of writing sizzling romances, has become a bestselling author with her Chandler Brothers series. William Dufris, the quintessential voice actor, overlays this story with the magic of his many voices, timing, and ability to present sensual overtones that are guaranteed to curl your toes, yet keep you listening. The relationship between Rick and Kendall is born of chemistry and nurtured into sweltering romance by Dufris's inflections. Even Hannah, Kendall's emotionally damaged younger sister, becomes the poster child for teenaged angst in Dufris's able presentation. Dufris is perfect for those who prefer their romances fast'n' frothy. His reading is pure afternoon delight. K.A.T. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine

        November 25, 2002
        In the first book of Phillips's trilogy (The Bachelor) about the irresistible marriage-resistant Chandler brothers of rural Yorkshire Falls, N.Y., footloose foreign correspondent Roman got hooked, thanks to the ingenious plotting of his matchmaking mama. This follow-up focuses on the middle brother, Rick, a loving but broken-hearted divorcee determined to resist both mom's marriage plots and those of his admirers—roughly every single woman in town. To do so, Rick employs a counterplot involving equally commitment-shy Kendall Sutton, whom the playboy policeman rescues from a car mishap as she's fleeing her own wedding. But will the independent twosome, feigning coupledom to remove themselves from the matchmaking game, foil themselves by genuinely falling for each other? Of course. In fact, there's little in the way of surprise or suspense herein. The characters express astonishment at certain plot turns, but readers won't, as all devious deeds are broadcast miles in advance. Still, the brothers' considerable charisma makes up for many sins of style and substance. Those who like their romances fast 'n' frothy may well find this lightweight tale an appealing afternoon's diversion. (Jan.)Forecast:Kelly Ripa picked
        The Bachelor for her book club last year, propelling it from #48,000 on Amazon's list to #2 in one day. Though Ripa may not pick
        The Playboy this time around, Phillips's sales will undoubtedly benefit from the prior exposure.
