Kiss an Angel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
My first SEP novel and it was oh soooo good!!!! Normally contemporary romance novels from the 90’s aren’t really my thing, but this was compared to The Unwanted Wife by Natasha Anders so I had to read it.
Kiss An Angel is the story of Daisy who gets roped into an arranged marriage to a man who seems to despise her. Alex works for a traveling circus and seems to find a lot of pleasure in assigning Daisy to tasks which would humiliate her. As time goes by, sparks fly between the two and they give in to their attraction. But Alex will never love anyone, and he makes it clear he will never love Daisy.
This book started out a bit rough for me, I almost threw in the towel and I pushed on. I’m so glad I did because after 20% or so I was unable to put down this book. Then 70% hit and it was angsty AF so of course I was vomiting happy rainbows out of my mouth. I’m such an angst whore, I swear. I really liked Daisy and Alex, I liked them even more together. Another highlight for me was the relationships developed with the circus animals because I am a giant softy for animals.
I cannot wait to discover more by SEP!
