Product Description

Product Description

Boston heiress Sophia Vanderwahl has come to realize her fiancé is a rotten philanderer. Looking for retribution, she sets out to find the wastrel to give back his engagement ring, hiring an old rival of his to take her to Mexico.

Although suspicious of her motives, Jack MacCauley needs the money to finance his expedition. In this light-hearted seafaring romance, Jack and Sophie learn to trust each other as lovers and friends.

Review from Publisher’s Weekly: Crosby (On Bended Knee) stays true to form in this lively late-19th-century romance about Sophia Vanderwahl, a Boston heiress funding her delinquent fiancé, Harlan Penn, who has gone off to explore the Yucatan and, as it becomes apparent, the joy of native women. Looking for retribution, Sophia sets out to find Harlan and give back his engagement ring. She hires Jack MacAuley, an overbearing adventurer–and old rival of Harlan’s–to take her to Mexico. Though suspicious of Sophia’s motives in using him, Jack needs the money to finance an expedition of his own. Jack is convinced that Sophia is out to sabotage his boat, but before long, angry sparks turn into romantic ones. Gradually Jack and Sophia each learn to trust the other as both lover and friend. The entertaining banter of Crosby’s characters will keep readers engaged in this humorous romance. (Nov.)

From RT Book Reviews: Once again, Tanya Anne Crosby gifts readers with a love story to cherish. Her amazing gift for spinning a colorful yarn will enthrall as the reader is swept away on the waves of Jack and Sophias heartwarming voyage of discovery.

Synopsis

When Sophia Vanderwahl learns her fiancee is two- and three-timing her, she hires adventurer Jack MacAuley to find him so she can confront him once and for all, but Jack's dreamy voice and golden eyes could soon make her forget her wayward lover altogether.

More About the Author

Put a menu in front of me and I immediately don't know what I want. Fried green tomatoes with grits? Yep, OK. Fish? Sounds good, too. So what are you having? Maybe I'll do that too. When it comes to shoes--forget it. I end up buying nothing because I can't make up my mind. Thank God I have a husband who has great taste or my closet might be empty. I'm one of those people who suffers from acute ambivalence given too many choices, but when it comes to what I wanted to do with my life, I've known that since the age of 12--and probably long before then. It all began once upon a time after a tonsillectomy, when the doc advised mom and dad they should reward me with anything I wanted (the key word here being anything). All I wanted was dad's typewriter. I got it, of course--a black, sporty Olympia I immediately set out to wearing the letters off the keys. So here I am all these years later, with sixteen books under my belt and a new one on the way ... still wearing the letters off keyboards ... and loving every minute.

Unforgettable and entertaining. The characters are easy to connect with and the writing style is amusing. Not your typical historical romance

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to know there are Happily Ever Afters 3 Dec 1999
By "dfischet" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While I have enjoyed most of her books, Ms. Crosby scored a hit with me with 'Happily Ever After.' The author has drawn her romantic pair as warm, funny and, well... just plain sweet. Jack, the hero, was a NICE hunk and Sophie was a beautiful woman (who didn't know she was lovely) coming into her own. I really thought it was a nice touch at the end of the book to have Sophie writing her parents with her recipe for happiness. If you want a really enjoyable read that will make you laugh and make you cry(and not because it is sad), don't overlook this book. It's well worth the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happily Ever After 20 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my first Tanya Anne Crosby book and I loved it! Sophia came from a rich, refined family, with a father that gave very good advice. Although she lived the easy life with servants to do everything for her, she had the determination to stand up for herself and her dreams and go on an adventure to tell her unworthy fiance she knew of his unfaithfullness and she wasn't going to stand for it! She pitched in to help on her journey, ending up dirty and smelling bad, but she was still a beauty in Jacks eyes. This was a great book, I highly recommend it

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful romp 7 Dec 1999
By L. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've never read a Tanya Anne Crosby book before but after this one, I definitely will read others. I found the book as a whole quite fun with a delightful hero and heroine. I always enjoy a hero who is more than the stereotypical brooding he-man with too much brawn and misery for the author to bother to make him charming or likable. Jack is likable. Though he has moods he isn't some relentlessly dark and brooding male.
Jack is a turn of the century anthropologist trying to debunk late Victorian academic fashion (and truthfully a rather racist belief) that Mayan and Aztec societies would have had to have been founded on Western cultures believing that "native" cultures would be too backward to develop so extensively on their own.
Sophie is a woman bounded by the era within which she lives. While she dreams of adventure and higher education, she was raised to be nothing more that a decorative wife and mother whose intellect and ambitions not only need not be taken seriously but are not expected to exist at all. When Sophia discovers her philandering fiance (Jack's rival in research)is simply using her and her father for grant money for his so-called "research expedition," Sophie is suddenly liberated and off on an adventure (and a little revenge since she is determined to dump her fiance in person. . .even if it means venturing to Belize to do so).
I found Jack to be likable, believable, and charming, and I liked Sophie. While I can quibble that I would have preferred more development on Jack's past, his theories, and his history with Sophie's ex-fiance not to mention an explanation for Sophie's seeming blind spot near the end when she cannot understand why Jack is upset about her upcoming reunion of her fiance (the author never gave what I thought was a reasonable explanation for an otherwise bright heroine to be so inexplicably unobservant) the book as a whole still worked for me.
I always find it preferable when you can imagine the characters liking each other as well as falling in love with each other, and Sophie and Jack seem to have that aspect to their romance. They could easily be friends, and with their shared intersts it's possible to envision a "happily ever after" for the two of them.
I thought the book was quite enjoyable as a whole.

1.0 out of 5 stars How to abuse the term "happily ever after"... 30 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sophia Vanderwahl is the beautiful yet empty-headed heroine of this novel, who, after discovering her fiance's philandering tendencies, concocts an ill-thought out plan to confront him with the aid of an adventurer she doesn't know, one Jack MacAuley. And that is just about the sum of this puerile plotline.
Sophie manages to irritate the reader throughout the novel with her foolish behaviour, which the authour tries unsuccessfully to convince us is for the sole purpose of the heroine freeing herself from the societal strictures imposed upon her. She also has a propensity for causing stupid accidents - the scene where she manages to fire the ship's cannon into the air only to land safely by going through her stacked chests of clothes stretches the limits of credulity.
Jack MacAuley's words to her early on sum up her character succinctly when he tells her "you're a spoiled rotton brat used to getting your own damned way", yet this promising sign of intelligence from him quickly fades as physical desire becomes synonymous with love in his head. However, to be fair to a hero who is not given much of an opportunity to develop in this story, his mental faculties would certainly be called into question if he came to desire her intellect, or more accurately, lack of, as well as her physical form.
If you must read this novel, do yourself a favour, borrow it from the library, and imagine a more fitting ending, one which includes a plank-walking scene, perhaps...

5.0 out of 5 stars Tanya Crosby's Writing At Her Best 6 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely LOVED this book. I could not put it down. Jack Macauley was a great character as was his friend, Kell. I'm hoping Kell gets his own book soon :) Sophie was also great! I loved the way she was traveling all that way and took such a risk, considering how she was bred and that she was alone, just to tell her boyfriend off! She finally stuck up for herself and it was Amazing! The chemistry between Jack and Sophie is explosive and this was, by far, Tanya Ann Crosby's most sensual work I've ever read. The love that they felt for each other was impressive. The way Jack was going to such extremes to not confuse or hurt her. It was a wonderful story and I recommend reading it.
