Beth Davis's fairy-tale days were over. Or so the single
mother of two thought! Then her matchmaking friends sent her
on a date with her very own Prince Charming. Millionaire
bachelor Todd Graham was sexy, eligible -- everything a woman
could want in a man. But Beth was a nearly-forty suburban
mom. Not exactly Cinderella material....
But somehow Todd saw the Sleeping Beauty within. Why else
would the Texas tycoon be wooing her with kisses that left her
trembling with longing? But Todd hadn't promised forever, and
a fairy tale like hers needed a happy ending. So Beth set out
to turn her handsome prince into a loving husband!

HASH(0xa26c7d44) out of 5 stars A WONDERFUL ROMANCE! Sept. 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In BETH AND THE BACHELOR, we meet Beth, a widowed mother of 2 teenagers. Coerced by her friends into going out on a blind date all in the name of charity, Beth is reluctant and nervous. Things get worse when she finds out that her date is a handsome millionare. Todd, the auctioned bachelor, is not looking forward to a mundane date with a middle-aged housewife. But one evening with Beth has the gorgeous entrepreneur's head spinning. Determined to have her, Todd sets out to woo her, but Beth isn't making it easy. Plagued with self-doubt and clinging to her late husband's memory, Beth finds herself afraid to commit to the man she now loves. But, fortunately, after a few "I could kill her!" mistakes, Beth comes to realize that Todd is her future. BETH AND THE BACHELOR is an excellent read that I know anyone with a heart will enjoy.

I think reading Susan Mallery's foreword first alerted me to the fact that this wasn't going to be another what people considered to be, a clichéd romance. Of course I knew Ms Mallery never writes any of those to begin with but this is most insight into her personal life I've ever got from one of my favorite authors. Beth's story turned out to be even more touching.
I may be a long way off from finding second love since I haven't even found first love but all the same, I related to the fear and at the same time, exhilaration, felt by both Beth and Todd at finding each other. What I liked about this book too, was a focus on the feelings of Beth's teenaged children.
Hug your significant other, hug your kids.
This is one great read.

HASH(0xa26c9504) out of 5 stars Sorry, but it was disappointing Feb. 22 2015

I always download a sample before I buy a book. When I read the sample, I thought the book had potential and decided to buy it. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to my expectations. Throughout the whole book, Beth is always so negative about herself. Anything related to possibility of a date or relationship with Todd is negative (her thoughts, her conversations with her friend and her kids). Then, her conversations with Todd are just sad. She's only ever been with her husband, so she knows nothing about the dating game. She gets so uncomfortable around Todd that she's blurting anything that comes into her head. And, she constantly mentions how she's not his type, as he dates only young and skinny girls...I mean uh women. She even had the thought that he would be more attracted to her 16 year old daughter than herself.
I can totally relate to Beth's character and understand her fears and insecurities, but it just didn't make sense how Todd could be interested in her.
Also, for those who care, there were a few typos.
Borrow it or buy it used and save your money.
HASH(0xa26c9414) out of 5 stars Good story; strong relationship building in a category romance Dec 13 2011
By AJ, The Original - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Quick and dirty: Beth's a widow with two teenage kids. Her friends buy her a night on the town with millionaire bachelor Todd. She abandons him on their initial date auction date, for which his assistant had booked a super trendy restaurant (per his norm). He is flabbergasted...and a little intrigued. He gets her to agree to another date, and he actually plans this one himself. Note: His assistant gives him the side-eye because he NEVER plans these things!

They're an older couple - he's in his early 40s; she's in her late 30s, if memory serves me correctly. After their date, Todd starts hanging out with Beth and her family.

This is a sweet romance (but there ARE open-door/intimate scenes) and has realistic relationship development when compared to most of these category romances.
