Book Description

A COMPLETE AND UTTER HOYDEN

A famed Egyptologist's niece, the beautiful, outrageous Jezebel Montclair has her future all planned out--and those plans don't include letting her arrogant, sinfully handsome new guardian boss her around. Determined to remain free, she refuses to leave Egypt and submit to the life of a staid, proper English lady. So when Rafe tracks her down in Cairo, despite her nearly uncontrollable attraction to him she knows she must escape, or risk the madness she's always feared.

TWO WORLDS COLLIDE

From the sun-baked deserts of an ancient land to the ballrooms and bedrooms of Regency London, a battle of wits, wills and glorious passion ensues. Yet only when it is nearly too late will this pair of defiant lovers realize that when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, their only choice is surrender--body, heart, and soul. . .

5.0 out of 5 stars The Belles & Beaux of Romance Reviews MARRYING JEZEBEL... 18 Oct. 2000
By "bellesandbeauxofromance" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hillary Fields has the same freshness and sensual sparks in MARRYING JEZEBEL as she did in her pirate adventure THE MAIDEN'S REVENGE. I enjoyed every moment of my adventure in Cairo and London in 1817-1818 with Jezebel and Rafe, two larger than life characters that make the pages sizzle with romance.
Jezebel Montclair's uncle, an archeologist in Egypt, has died and made arrangements in his will for Raphael Sunderland, the duke of Ravenhurst, to be her guardian, something he had agreed to years ago and had forgotten all about. When Jezebel doesn't show up on the packet from Cario, Rafe is worried, thinking anything could have happened to a young girl left on her own in Egypt. The duke, being the kind of man who is very responsible and a man of his word, sets off to see if she has run into any harm.
Imagine his surprise when Jezebel is pointed out to him in a hotel bar conversing with two men, dressed in male garb. He is shocked beyond all, and at the same time he sees the most beautiful woman in the world when he approaches her table and she turns her gaze on him. She in turn sees a commanding figure of a man well over six feet tall, with glorious golden curls and very penetrating eyes. He demands that she go back to England with him and she refuses saying she has work of her uncle's to complete. As it turns out they can't get passage back to London for a while so Jezebel takes Rafe on a tour of the favorite spots so she can investigate some of the tombs and search out the information she needed. Jezebel is a very unusual woman and she leads the magnificent Rafe a merry chase.
It's not too long before the attraction between Jezebel and Rafe turns into a burning desire and watch out for the fire! The two are always butting heads and there is a lot of misunderstanding between them between some periods of intense desire. Getting Jezebel out of Egypt is a lot harder than Rafe ever dreamed, and marrying Jezebel is almost impossible! I loved this story and want to read it again since I flew through it so fast the first time, and there are so many choice passages that I want to savor once again.
The dialogue is snappy and fast-paced and the scenes in Cairo are magical. Rafe and Jezebel are strong characters who light up the pages of the book with fire and humor. The secondary cast is clever and entertaining. I'd especially like to see a book for Rafe's best friend, Damien, Lord Marksley, a man who will make an excellent hero! All in all, this is an adventure of the heart and mind.

"Hillary Fields is an author to watch! Her characters are golden and shiny bright, just like her writing. Don't miss this author."

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, warm and funny 7 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It takes an extraordinary romance novel to actually make me cry, but "Marrying Jezebel" did just that. Just when the dramatic tension get too intense, Ms. Fields makes the reader laugh as well. It was nice to see the heroine plagued by inner demons this time, instead of the usual angst-filled hero. But Jezebel is a great character and who could ever resist Rafe. This is a great feel-good novel by an exciting new talent. Check out "The Maiden's Revenge" as well. I can't wait for Hillary Field's next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! 13 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Marrying Jezebel is even better than Hillary Fields' The Maiden's Revenge. The setting is really out of the ordinary -- Egypt in the early 19th century -- and features lots of local color and interesting information on archaeology.
Most appealing of all, of course, is the steamy burgeoning love affair of Jezebel Montclair and her unwished for guardian, Rafe Sunderland. Ms. Fields once again introduces a strong-willed female heroine who is ultimately matched with a male opposite worthy of her regard.
This book is even better-written than her first, and I am anxiously awaiting Hillary Fields' next venture.

5.0 out of 5 stars MARRYING JEZEBEL sizzles with romance and passion! 12 Dec. 2000
By astrid kinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
MARRYING JEZEBEL is filled with characters of depth and substance whose lives are lived as if every day is their last. Although the chemistry between Rafe and Jezebel burns a hole through the pages, there is much more to their relationship than physical attraction, and it is a treat to see how they bond emotionally and intellectually as well. The reader will also be captivated with the beautiful settings and vivid imagery Ms. Fields took such pains to create. A well-crafted adventure that sizzles with romance and passion, MARRYING JEZEBEL is entertainment at its best!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd better make more room on my bookshelf! 30 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Although I have never had the privilege to read this author, I am quite willing to say that I was hooked from the start. This story reaches out and grabs your attention from the beginning and holds it deliciously through to the end. The characters have great depth and emotional reality, which made it very hard to set the book down. Here's the major idea The duke of Ravenhurst has inherited an unwanted ward. He expects a reclusive, simpering ninny and instead comes face to face with a firebrand (Jezebel), who doesn't want anything to do with anyone who would clip her wings. The pair have quite a few wonderful confrontations written so well, I couldn't decide who to root for! I finally decided to just ride out the wave. From the anguish of love unrequited, to the joy of love realized, the book did not disappoint in the least! If this is an example of Ms. Fields' writing style, I'd better make more room on my bookshelf! -- Charlene Hess, THE OLD BOOK BARN GAZETTE
