Review: Desperately Seeking Suzanna by Elizabeth Michels

Sue Green just wanted one night to be the pretty one. But a few glasses of champagne and one wild disguise later, she's in some serious trouble. Who knew the devastatingly handsome face of Lord Holden Ellis would get in the way of her foot? And how exactly did all that high-kick dancing start in the first place? At least she blamed it on her new persona—Suzanna—so Society's most eligible bachelor will never find out the truth.
All Holden wants is the truth. Who was that vixen who seduced him so thoroughly, then disappeared? The only one who seems to have any answers about Suzanna is Miss Sue Green. She's promised to help him find his mystery woman, but she's not being all that helpful. And the more time Holden spends with Sue—witty, pretty, and disarmingly honest—the more he realizes he may have found exactly what he's been looking for all along...

Sue Greene is one of the most interesting and appealing heroines I have come across between the pages of a book. She is so easy to relate to, (klutzy women need to unite) and so darn amiable. After all how can you not like a young lady who seeks out the dessert table before scanning her surroundings for eligible bachelors? I wholeheartedly disliked Sue’s mother and felt my heart ache for the way she treated her eldest daughter. Sue deserved not only kindness from her family but love and acceptance as well and I was so glad when Lord Steelings opened his eyes to see the wonderful woman in front of him. Even when I wanted to cuff him in the back of head for his ignorance I fell under the same spell Sue did. This is the second book I've read by this author and I'm a huge fan, she is definitely going on my must-read list as she writes with passion, humor and a heartfeltness that I couldn't help but get lost in. I'm looking forward to reading the adventures of many of the other characters I've met in this and the previous book.


  1. BBL I love the review. In many ways I like this one better than Must Love Dukes. It is a tough call but E. Michels was obviously not a one hit wonder. I can't wait to get my hands on the third one in the Tricks of the Ton series.

  2. Thanks Amber! We try to give the readers as much as we can on books. Even one we don't care for, lol.
