Book Description

May 1 2007 Bed & Breakfast
Hurt one too many times in the past, Sloan Fairchild isn't interested in love. Instead, she pours all her energy into running her elegant bed-and-breakfast inn. But when her best friend asks her to house her fiance for a month, Sloan opens the doors of Fairchild House to Carter Madison...and meets a man who turns her world—and her concept of herself—upside down.

Sloan tries to ignore the feelings this handsome man stirs in her...tries to stop herself from dreaming dreams that can never be. Yet when Carter reveals his own desire, Sloan will find herself facing a heart-wrenching decision: to love for the moment, to walk away forever, or to fight to have it all.

Product Description

From Amazon

Sloan Fairchild has made a rousing success of her elegant San Francisco bed-and-breakfast inn, but her love life has suffered--until her best friend's fiance comes to stay for a month. Should Sloan betray her friend, or deny her heart? A deeply romantic story of a woman forced to examine her conscience and make a hard decision. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Library Journal

While this novel won't likely be confused with Breakfast at Tiffany's, Brown's popularity is irrefutable. In this hardcover reissue of a 1991 romance, a woman is torn between loyalty to her best friend and lust for the friend's fiance.

Heard the taped version of Sandra Brown's BREAKFAST IN
BED . . . written back in 1983, this appears to be one of her
earlier books . . . she was strictly a romance novelist then . . . Brown subsequently shifted gears to write mystery thrillers, many of which I have enjoyed (especially since they are almost always different) . . . what seems to have happened: when she became so popular, her publisher took to reissuing her earlier works in both paperback and cassette versions . . . this surprisingly engrossing tale is about a woman, jilted by her boyfriend, who directs all her energy into running an elegant
bed-and-breakfast inn . . . everything is safe and
comfortable until a successful author appears on her doorstep
to finish his latest project . . . they naturally fall in love; however, the author also happens to be her best friend's fiance . . . I must admit that several steamy love scenes also helped keep my attention . . . Richard Poe's narration was excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Romance with a Conscience Jan. 30 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sloane Fairchild has been hurt many times in her life, and has locked her feelings deep inside her, pouring all her energies into opening a bed-and-breakfast inn near San Francisco. Everything she is as a woman is channeled into the inn, which she perfects down to the last detail.
All is going perfectly. Sloane is able to successfully deny her more sensual needs, and take pleasure in her growing business. Until an incredible guest shows up--a man who literally takes her breath away, fight it as she will. Carter turns out to be a best-selling author who needs a hideaway to escape his hectic life and meet the looming deadline for his next book. Sloane is viscerally attracted to him, but fiercely fights it down. Not only is she afraid of involvement, this man is strictly off limits. He is her best friend's fiance.
As the attraction between Sloane and Carter grows despite their best efforts, so does their guilt. Carter is not a lothario, but he is engaged for all the wrong reasons: his fiancee and her two small children have been left behind by the death of his best friend. Lending support and assistance, he found himself offering more. Now that he has met Sloane, he sees the error he has made, but it is too late. He feels he must honor his commitment.
Sloane, now desperately in love, feels the same, and it is almost unbearable. When the two finally make love, having lost their battle to stay apart, the reader is torn as well. Obviously, Sloane and Carter belong together, but is that fair?
The reader is kept on tenterhooks until almost the last page, and the ending is not predictable. This is a lovely romance, one with a conscience, and I recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and Intense !! Dec 3 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Breakfast in Bed" is very special; because to me, the way these relationships always end up is in misery and all those bad feelings.
Sloan Fairchild is the owner of this elegant bed-and-breakfast inn, and it's called Fairchild House. Sloan focuses all her energy into Fairchild House and in a way Fairchild House is her sanctuary from the outside world, because in the outside world, Sloan has been hurt too many times and she's sort of hiding from it. Sloan promises her best friend, Alicia to let Alicia's fiancé live in Fairchild House for a month. It was a big mistake... because as soon as Sloan opened that door to let Carter Madison into that house, Alicia's fiancé, there was instant sexual tension.
Carter Madison came to Fairchild House, to work on the last chapter of his book. What he didn't expect was to feel the passion and desire for his fiancée's best friend.
Sloan and Carter try to ignore the mutual passion and desire, because of Alicia, but it's very hard. The time comes when Carter ahs to leave, to marry Alicia, but would Carter be able to leave and fulfill his wedding vows to Alicia?
I love this book because of the strong will power Carter and Sloan shows, to restrain themselves of their passion and desire. I think it's really magical and it's really good. I stayed up until very late to finish "Breakfast in Bed" and it was worth it.

Sandra Brown's Breakfast in Bed enchants with its ravaging poignancy and emotional crests Ms. Brown raises with her heroine Sloan Fairchild. This book starts with her running a breakfast-in-bed inn in San Franscisco and Amelia, her best friend has introduced her boyfriend, Carter for a stay.
Sloan, with her chilling vulnerability and a woman at heart attracts Carter like no other. Desperately she fights this magnetic attraction for this writer, refusing any form of betrayal. She feels protected and loved in the arms of Carter yet they have to keep their attractions at bay. Sloan is going to find that letting him go is not as easy anymore...
The moral dilemma is handled with professional narrative by Ms. Brown and she has created two memorable characters who decide their path of love together. Her stories are simple with stunning truths - that love is a healer and also cuts in both ways.
Ms. Brown is one gifted writer capable of producing savagely tender stories that grip the readers. Her passionate love scenes is done with exquisite poignancy and sizzling desires. It has no frills but sweeps the readers in a lulling mode with the simplicity. BREAKFAST IN BED is definitely a romance that will be etched in your heart with its cutting poignancy.

I thought the tape was excellent! I loved the characters. I have listened to my tape at least 5 times. I also loved the follow-up tape, "Send No Flowers".
