Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Readers who have enjoyed Phillips's writing in the past (Heaven, Texas) will be disappointed by her latest contemporary. In dire straits as a result of her irresponsible lifestyle, Daisy Devreaux is given an ultimatum by her outraged father?jail or an arranged marriage to Alex Markov, a broodingly handsome Russian handpicked by her father to teach Daisy the error of her ways. It's a thin plot that's kept going by a superabundance of sex. In better outings, Phillips's razor sharp wit might keeps things afloat, but there is nothing funny in the mean-spirited and abusive hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fairy Tale Magical Realism June 20 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As someone who suffered childhood trauma, I find this an exceptionally important book. It heals me. I've read it 5 times and I'm just beginning to understand it in a way I can articulate. It works like a fairy tale. Also it offers something like "magical realism" where what is bad is believable and the transformation to good is rather magical. Each of the characters has both strengths and weaknesses. Each has to learn how to become stronger in their areas of weakness, and use their strengths responsibly. They are tested and they go through trials. These are not realistically drawn characters--they are bigger than life and their transformations are improbable. I love them, as I would have as a child, including the animals who uphold the ethos of wildness and being true to our natures?a theme mirrored in the sexuality in this book. There is a little story within this book about Alex and Sheba that reminds me of "The Grand Inquisitor" in the Brother's Karamazov. The story stands on its own very well, but it also educates the reader for the rest of the book. The ideas in this story are a template that helps us understand other characters: different circumstances can cause similar traits; people can form strength in unhealthy ways especially in pride; and (mostly) people are not all good or all bad. All the characters attain redemption through doing things intrinsically difficult for them and thus becoming more whole. Note: Alex is not just being stubborn about love and children: he is dedicated to never allowing himself the chance to do evil by having a family without being able to love. He believes he cannot do it. He believes he is guided by a greater good when he makes things difficult for Daisy in order to discourage her love for him. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars April 21 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
**4.5 Stars **

I really enjoyed this book, I did knock off half a star due to the amount of times the hero referred to the heroine as ditzy, featherbrained, airheaded etc (even if it was only in his mind) it got kind of tedious. I wasn't drawn to the circus plot on the back of the book, but by now I know that most of her cover summaries don't intrigue me but the actual story does. The characters were fun and liked to see them evolve.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is not a new book Nov. 13 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One should not present an old book, reedited like new one,
plus it is not the best of this author.
I almost bought it twice, as it was presented as her latest,
and I like how she writes,

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read Sept. 2 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an awesome book with great characters and plot. I fell love with the characters and hated the book to end. This was my first SEP book but not my last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves you feeling all warm inside! Aug. 20 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A friend of mine recommended I read this book. While I had read and enjoyed other books by Phillips I was a little skeptical. I mean a circus? How good can a story set in a circus be? Very very good. This is now one of my favourite books. Alex and Daisy are great together. When you finish reading Kiss An Angel you're left with a warm feeling inside and a smile on your face. Read this book! You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it!!! July 28 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I agree with other reviewers that I wasn't sure I'd like the whole circus theme, but it was so easy to get wrapped up in the animals and Daisy's close bonds with them. I wanted to keep reading and even found myself shedding a tear or two at times. This was a heart-warming story that I found delightful.
