Books by Susan Andersen

Be My Baby

A Retro Review originally published on February 23, 1999   And to think I almost put this book down because one of Beau Dupree's first lines is: "The minute Jose Lee's out the door though, I'm picking it up right where I left off. First thing I'm going to do is find me a little blond with ...

Some Like It Hot

Easily digested, warm and engrossing, Some Like It Hot by Susan Andersen is one of the best of this year's light summer reads. Second in the Razor Bay series, it follows the romance between hunkalicious deputy sheriff Max Bradshaw and itinerant philanthropist Harper Summerville. H ...

That Thing Called Love

Talented authors can make readers forgive almost anything and there is no doubt that Ms. Andersen is a talented author. I accepted without a qualm a hero who ignored his son for thirteen years but now wants to do the right thing – even if that is taking him away from the only home he has ever know ...

Burning Up

Susan Andersen used to be one of my auto-buy authors, but in the last few years her books have been hit-or-miss for me. Her latest wasn't a total miss, but it definitely doesn't rank as good as many of her previous books. Macy O'James couldn't wait to get out of small-minded Sugarvil ...

Bending the Rules

Bending the Rules is the second in Susan Andersen’s trilogy about three school friends. These three are fixing up an old mansion full of treasures that was left to them by Miss Agnes, the wealthy and eccentric matron who befriended them when they were young. Jane Kaplinski’s story was told in ...

Cutting Loose

For years now I’ve looked to Susan Andersen as one of the more reliable authors out there, with a deft hand with a contemporary romance on which I could rely. In other words, if I needed something for the beach, a book by the author would always be a good choice. Based on this first entry in her ...

Just for Kicks

If Just for Kicks isn’t quite Susan Andersen at her best, it’s still a fun and largely satisfying read. Las Vegas showgirl Carly Jacobsen doesn’t have much in common with her next-door neighbor, the ultra-straitlaced Wolfgang Jones. To make bad luck even worse, the man who complains repeat ...

Skintight

Susan Andersen’s latest offers a twist with its unconventional occupations for both the hero and heroine. No spy, cop, architect, or powerful businessman here - the hero is a professional gambler. And breaking new ground for me is this heroine’s occupation: she is a Las Vegas showgirl who, I q ...

A
Exposure

Does your significant other wonder why you are so fond of romance? Is he a fan of mysteries and suspense and would not dream of reading a romance novel? Do the covers of romance turn him off? Well then, slip him a copy of Susan Andersen's Exposure, a wonderful romance novel in suspense novel's cloth ...

Hot and Bothered

Let's get it right out on the table: Susan Andersen builds her plot around one of those extraordinarily impossible coincidences (but, heck, haven't we all experienced one of those "impossible" coincidences at least once in our lives?) and, yes, there is a secret baby (okay, something most of us have ...
