Don't stop to ask questions, just kick back and ENJOY!! This is one funny book. Maggie Davis aka Katherine Deauxville is a charming lady and a wonderful artist, and both show in the warm and funny tale of 29 year old Dr. Peter Havistock who announces to the world he is a virgin looking for a wife. When he was not yet 15, the plane carrying his parents and him crash land in the jungle of New Guinea. For the next 14 years, he lives with the tribe that rescued him. However, since they deemed him their 'golden god' they would not permit him to marry within their tribe. Also, they had high moral standards, so he is now nearly 30 and a virgin.
He is a profession of anthropology and in on a book tour of college campuses to promote his story and the lives of the tribe that raised him. And he has a very attention catching style that is fanning the flames of press and women alive.
Leslie Wimberly is in charge of handling the book tour. A beautiful 34 year old divorcée, she is finding the Professor a bit more than she can handle. From his G string demonstration of authentic native gab, to defending him from mobs of women, to the announcing he has never been kissed before, leaves her running in circles.
It is fast pasted, funny and absolute laugh out loud riot. Only thing I find fault with is I wish she spent more time between the two main characters instead of Leslie talking about him to everyone else. Peter is so CUTE!!!
So if you need a pick me up...a cheer to your weekend....this is the tonic!!!...

I really, really disliked this book for one main reason, although there were others: was there a hero in it? It's hard to tell. The putative hero, Peter something-or-other features almost as a secondary character. Now I know that when I read the words that an author has put into a male characters' voice or head, that I am not really getting insights into the male pysche - it's a woman writing it, after all. I like the illusion though. It lends balance to a story that otherwise ends up as the neurotic meanderings of some woman we don't know, and can sound so juvenile ("Does he like me? Do I like him? Oh, he must think..." ad nauseum).
If you enjoy reading 20 year old Mills & Boons, then you might enjoy this book. If you like the more modern romance genre, where the hero actually gets a say-so and isn't reduced to merely responding to whatever the girl is doing, except for maybe 10 lines at the end of the book to explain all, I wouldn't bother.
The other thing that turned me off of this book was the heroine, Lesley. She had no spine, a rich little girl working in daddy's Foundation in a position of authority she was patently unable to cope with (or even realistically achieve).
The only thing that ran true about the story was Lesley's dependance on her ex-husband Brent, but then the severing of that tie was abrupt, unexplained and vague - like a decision to quit smoking as you stub out the cigarette - she'd just finished an unsatisfactory call with said ex, and she suddenly realises that she doesn't need him any more - yeah, wait till the next flat tire, and see who the first person you call is, love.
I haven't read any of Ms Deauxville's other books, and won't be, but perhaps I am doing her a dis-service, and her historicals work better. Can't be asked to find out, though.

This book was so much fun! The premise was very original. A boy and his parents are in a plane crash in the Outback, the parents die, leaving the boy to fend for himself. He is found by a local tribe and they accept him as their golden one from the sky - a god. Since he is a god, they will not permit him to marry into the tribe, so the poor lad must remain unkissed! The tribe finally send him off to get an education and find his way in the modern world. He is very bright and is able to get a good education, except where females are concerned. Pete is so cute!
He is making a tour of US promoting his book on his life with the aboriginals, and Leslie is assigned to "hold his hand" as PR person. However, it turning into PR nightmare, because Peter doffs clothing to show off true ceremonial gab - g string with feathers. Uptight Leslie is about to pop a cork, but the madness is only starting. Pete announces on Larry King to the world that he is a virgin and wants a wife. The ladies queue up to apply. Only, Pete has eyes for Leslie.
I love how Poor Leslie is so stuffy - coming from her background you would expect that. But slowly she learns to let loose and find the magic with Pete.
This book is really getting a lot of attention again and justly deserved. It was 2003 RIO Award of Excellence winner for best Contemporary Romance. And when the Reviewers vote a book good, then you know you have a real winner for you. I see a lot of the "chick lit" books around now, but Maggie Davis aka Katherine Deauxville was leading the way.
