2.0 out of 5 stars Better for reading 14 Dec 2010
By Mrs
Format:MP3 CD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book many years ago and was excited to receive this audio version.

I gave 2 stars as, unfortunately, I did not enjoy the audio reading.

I found that it made the story weak and tedious to the point where I began to actively dislike the characters.

Other people will, hopefully, disagree and thoroughly enjoy the audio reading. I will stick to reading the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY FAVOURITE! 13 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Fit for a King was the book that made me look out for Diana Palmer's other titles. It talks about the touching friendship between Kingston Rouper and Elissa Dean who started out as friendly neighbours for two years then started developing feelings for each other. Their chemistry was superb and the way Diana described their change in relationship from friends to lovers was fantastic - the confusion, the frustrations, the jealousy, the quarrels and the made-up.....! This book also mentioned the couple Meredith and Blake Donavan featured in Reluctant Father so you should read this book as well if you are the type who loves the 'connections' between couples featured in other titles!

5.0 out of 5 stars I have to defend this book! 14 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Did the others who trashed this book read the same one I did? I found it to be very sweet and romantic, and Kingston to be a terrific hero. Yes, he desires his sister-in-law, but I bet many men secretly do in the real world, too. She wanted him, too, so if he was that bad a guy he would have jumped at his chance with her. But he doesn't - he comes up with a plan to discourage her, and it leads to a wonderful romance with a dear friend. King is strong and sexy, yet so tender in the love scenes that he truly seems like the perfect man. If you don't want to buy this book because of the other reviews, fine, but if you are a Palmer fan at least look for it at the library and judge for yourself. If I loved this book, many others will, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT romance! 3 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was really disappointed in this book. It was a shame, too, because I really like romances about good friends falling in love. The beginning, when we see how the heroine coaxes her grumpy bear of a neighbor into friendship, is the only good part of this book, though. In this case, friendship was about all the jerk-hero deserved - and I wouldn't have been his friend after the way he treats the heroine, either.
Showing Kingston giving longing, wistful looks at his sister-in-law put me off right from the beginning, and he didn't endear himself to me one bit as the story unfolded - and only marginally during the last scene of the book.
This is not my idea of romance. There was no mention of the fact that this bizarre relationship with Bess (or is it Beth?) is not only adultery-in-the-making, but really sleezy behavior on both King's and Bess's parts. And King, although seemingly surprising himself when he feels desire for his "good friend," hung onto those lustful, longing feelings for his sister-in-law much too long for me.
IMO, to be a real romance, the heroine should've held a much bigger role in his thoughts than she did. King, though, simply used her for his own convenience ("Hey, honey, help me out here. Let's get married so I can't boink my brother's wife. I really care about her, but I kinda like you, and I'll bet the sex will be great, so surely that's enough for you, right?") He keeps up this form of "courtship" right up until they consumated the relationship, then - HEY, PRESTO! - instantly he's in love, and why doesn't she realize he now wants her instead of Bess, dammit?
King thinks what's-her-name should marry him, because that will definitely stop him from acting on his lust for his brother's wife. Really? Why should we believe that, when the fact that Bess is married to his own BROTHER doesn't seem to be a deterent?
Bess being catty to ...(what WAS her name?)... because she thinks she's taking her BROTHER-IN-LAW away from her (huh? what about your HUSBAND, dear?)-- and then later in the book we're supposed to like Bess simply because King's housekeeper did???
I'm sorry, but it will take more than the author using the housekeeper to tell me they're all good people for me to find anything likeable in any of these characters (and the heroine became such a doormat-twit in my eyes I seem to have erased her name from my memory!)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great from Diana Palmer 14 Aug 2006
By Krystal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One of my favorite books from Diana Palmer. Ive read my share of Palmer's books and this one i believe was very good. Not too many characters, straight to the point from the beggining. The storyline did not lag. There were no loose ends. A perfect combinination of sex, emotion, and the usual jealously. A great by the author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please skip this book... 24 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read all of Diana Palmers books, but this one was terrible and not up to par with her other stories. I agree with some of the other reviewers that Kingston Roper stinks as any kind of romantic hero and his affair of the "mind and heart" with his own sister in law left a bitter taste in this readers mouth. I think what really made this so nasty and tacky was the fact that the sister in law Bess was married to his own brother! If I were Elissa, I would have steered clear of this obviously disturbed man and found a real one somewhere else. Also, I wanted to cringe during Kingstons reasonings for marrying Elissa so he could free his guilty conscience and keep away from Bess and her "unwanted" attentions. I say that loosely because he sure didn't put up much a fight or let Bess know he wanted nothing to do with her. I felt the sex scenes were forced and contrived and once again Kingston's way of proving that he could forget Bess and use Elissa instead. When I read a romance, I want to read about romance. This book lacked it and more.
