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.

3.0 out of 5 stars What fun... being served Breakfast in Bed! March 17 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Want a fairly quick read full of sizzling romance- this is it! Single, Sloan is trying to make a go of her Bed & Breakfast. Carter is trying to get his lastest book written before it's deadline. He is to marry his deceased best friend's widow when he is through. Alicia, Sloan's best friend and Carter's fiancee, suggest that Carter get away for a while in seclusion so he can finish his book and they can get on with their lives. Alicia and Carter's relationship is not one of passion and love- oh, there's love there, Carter's love for his best friend's widow and sons who need a father figure and Alicia's love for deceased husband Jim's best friend to fill a void now in her life. But passion, no!
So Carter arrives at the B&B only to discover love at first sight and the same goes for Sloan. But how can Sloan and Carter pursue their unspoken passion for each other with the thought of betrayal to Alicia hunging in the air. Sweet, sweet romance!

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't like the abridged audio tape version! Feb. 19 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
I bought the abridged audio tape because I like the actress who reads it, I have seen her on several different soap operas and TV guest appearances and I have always though that she was a good actress but I'm disappointed with her reading of this book she sounded flat and unemotional and used the same voice for each character and I like it when they use different voices for all the different characters so I was just not happy with the audio tape at all and promptly gave it away! I see the unabridged audio tape version is read by someone else but since I didn't like the abridged tape version I definitely will not buy the unabridged tapes!

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the best! Jan. 5 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
I listened to the audio cassette recording and I just didn't care for the story or the characters and I only finished the tapes to see what would happen with the guy named Carter Madison and the lady named Sloan Fairchild and this is not something I would listen to again and was not a keeper!

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.
