Product Description

From Booklist

Chapman continues the story of the rough and tough Knight family from The Seduction of His Wife (2006). Anna Segee is back, working in her hometown at Loon Creek Mill and living at the old, isolated place her grandfather left her without anyone knowing her identity. She runs a tight ship as the foreman of Loon Creek Mill in northern Maine. When the new man causes an accident, she fires him, which has nothing to do with the fact that he punched her in the face. Ethan Knight has never hit a woman before, and when he returns to the mill as the new owner, he has to deal with Anna and his remorse. As for Anna, she is determined to prove herself in a man's world. Nothing is going to stop her, not even Ethan, who was her knight in shining armor as a child. Chapman tells a thoroughly enjoyable tale of a modern-day knight and his feisty ladylove set in the rugged mountains of Maine. Patty Engelmann

HASH(0xa6b6be88) out of 5 stars Great follow up to "Seduction of his Wife" March 12 2007
By Tracy Vest - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The daughter of the town tramp and one of her many lovers, Abby Fox was shipped away to live with her father at 11 after being attacked by some local boys. Her savior, Ethan Knight was beat up and never got the chance to say goodbye. Fast forward 18 years, and Abby is now Anna Segee, daughter of a Canadian lumber baron and currently the foreman of the Loon Cove Lumber mill. She has inherited the old sawmill ranch owned by her estranged grandfather, and keeping her identity secret, she tries to reconnect with gramps (whom she feel abandoned her) by reading his many journals.

Anna has always had a crush on Ethan, so when he steps out in front of her loader, she dumps her load in order to protect him. On his first day at the mill, he doesn't make a good impression - Anna fires him. When he returns weeks later as the owner/manager, sparks continue to fly, particularly since his father has arranged for him to bunk in one of the vacant cabins on Anna's property (and Ethan discovers what she wears under her work clothes). As the two start to fall for each other, they discover that someone wants to do harm to Anna, and the culprits have broken into her many outbuildings in search of who knows what...

Chapman's second in the Knight family of Maine is a fun read from cover to cover. When the mention of a ghost appeared in the first chapter, I almost tossed the book at the wall, but thankfully there was no paranormal crud to be found. Ethan and Anna are a great and charismatic couple - definitely equals in a battle of the sexes. The secondary characters, including her four burly French-Canadian lumberjack brothers, keep the story grounded.

HASH(0xa6b6bedc) out of 5 stars Ethan and Anna will win your heart... March 28 2007
By D. Malone - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In the sequel to The Seduction of His Wife Janet Chapman focuses on Ethan Knight. Ethan is set to take over the family's new acquisition, a sawmill. After being fired by the mill's foreman for a stupid accident prior to the sale of the sawmill, he is holding a small grudge. Not only does he end up keeping the foreman, but unknowingly rents a cottage on her property as well.

Anna had a huge crush on Ethan when she was young and he saved her. Her grandfather shipped her off to her father after "the incident." He did it for her own good, but Anna is just now figuring that part out, after his death. She's gotten past her childhood traumas, but can't get past her crush on Ethan. The fact that he keeps saving her doesn't help.

A great story, and a beautiful addition to the series.

HASH(0xa63a9330) out of 5 stars The Stranger in Her Bed Jan. 29 2007
By S. Evans - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As with any book by Janet Chapman, I find myself reading some, then checking to see how much of the book is left---I just hate to see the pages go by! You want her books to last forever, and The Stranger in Her Bed is no exception! Janet Chapman hooks you from the first few words, and this book is fun, and full of people you'd like to know in real life. I would recommend it for any day rain, shine, or in between.

HASH(0xa63a96f0) out of 5 stars Somewhat of a letdown, but not too bad June 15 2007
By JJN-1313 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Like the first book in this series, this book is a nice light read. It's not quite what you'd call a beach-book, but it's nothing terribly gripping either. Just a nice romance with a little action thrown in on the side. And like the last book, I waited too long again to write my review so I've forgotten half of what I was going to say.

A couple of criticisms...there seemed to be a few inconsistencies between this book and the first one. I can't remember what they were, but there were a few details that didn't match up. I didn't like how Chapman handled Ethan figuring out who Anna really was. It was kinda like - don't you think, Abby? (the heroine's real name) And that was it. We didn't get his thought process or much of a reaction and that was disappointing. Another thing I hated was the sanitized language. You can only read so many "holy smokes!" or "goshes" before you want to smack your head. Maybe it's just me, but if you're going to write a sexually explicit scene, you should be able to curse. I'm not saying there had to be 5-star swear words all over the place, but a couple of the less objectionable ones wouldn't have hurt. Or even just some variety in the "pretty" swears would have been nice. I just got really tired of read "holy smokes" every couple pages.

I think the most disappointed aspect of the book was realizing that Chapman wasn't going to do a story for the third brother, Paul. She married him off in this one in few pages and that was that. It just seemed a bit lame after building up this thing with three bachelor brothers in the first book. I was looking forward to a third story.

Overall, I liked the book enough. It was a cute romance, nice chemistry and characters, and a solid storyline. But I wouldn't say it was utterly fabulous. It was just a solidly slightly above average read.

HASH(0xa63a97d4) out of 5 stars So-so at best. Sept. 18 2007

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Strong woman turns into wimp.
Man overbearing, arrogant, sexist jerk.

Anna being the foreman was a big part of the plot yet Ethan fired her for something anyone else would have gotten away with, at most, a reprimand. She barely raises a fuss and she still keeps seeing him and letting him use her. I hate books like this where the tough, independent woman turns into a doormat.

Inconsistencies. EX: Anna could hear a whispered conversation from over 300 feet? Not unless she has Superman ears.

Why didn't Paul's get his own book? His story was covered in a few pages. I'm not sure if this is the end of this particular series or not. I like Janet Chapman but this book just didn't do it for me. A 3 is kind.
