Product Description

When Ruby Runyon's hot date turns out to be mob-connected and married, her only chance of escape is to crash a swanky party aboard a luxury yacht. The next thing she knows, she's on her way to the Bahamas with nothing but the little black dress on her back. It doesn't help that she's going to be turned away from every port without proof of citizenship, which just didn't quite fit into her electron-sized cocktail bag.

Enter Cary Grant wannabe Keaton Hamilton Danning the III, former chief adviser to kings, present babysitter of a recalcitrant prince. His job is fixing problems, and Ruby's shouldn't be too big a challenge. But it isn't long before she's turning his well-ordered existence on its head. She's sexy and sassy and just right for passion. But can they possibly jibe the two very different worlds they come from? How can they find their way to each other when they can't even get Ruby home?

Synopsis

Fleeing her date, who, unbeknownst to her, is both mob-connected and married, Ruby Runyon crashes a posh party for the rish and famous and finds herself drawn to the handsome Keaton Hamilton Danning III, the chief adviser to one of the world's most snobbish royals. Original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The main characters are ok. What you will really love is the story between Gus the bartender and Arabella. I found myself more involved in their story which I loved and that is why I gave this book 5 stars. It is worth the read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Over-the-top plot and too-trying humour 1 Jun 2002
By Desmond Chan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Just when I expect Ms. Bevarly's sense of humour to be witty and droll - her latest novel Take Me, I'm yours only shows the ineptitude of the plotting in the novel that renders it a colossal disappointment. Ms. Bevarly's narration is full of hyphenated repetitions and long (and I do mean - long) names that spells tiresome and banal. Her story which involves Ruby Runyon, a waitress aspiring to be an actress meets a mob-related boyfriend Jimmy and when she knows he is married, she is eager to escape and lands herself on a ship Mad Tryst commandeered by Prince Reynaldo of Pelagia. She meets the deliciously handsome Keaton Danning who is the advisor to Reynaldo and Countess Arabella of Toulaine and heads for an adventure...
It is slow-paced and flat-out predictible. Even Ms. Bevarly writes in her novel that readers will call her plot insubstantial. While the saving grace is the chemistry between Keaton and Ruby and a much more interesting secondary romance between Arabella and the bartender Gus, the tale of choosing freedom over obligations is too far-fetched to become palatable. The humour is just too over-the-top-and-too-trying and it really takes a lot of patience to get through the first part of the book which most reader regrettably don't have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth Bevarly once again delivers wonderful romance! 5 Aug 2002
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Keaton Hamilton Danning III is getting fed up with his `wonderful' job. Working for an overthrown-uh, abdicated-Prince Reynaldo, Keaton has spent the last year being basically a cruise director to bunches of Reynaldo's spoiled, rich friends. He'd always seen himself becoming Prime Minister in the small country he'd served as chief advisor in for years. But when the Prince gave the county their independence, he'd chosen to go with Reynaldo-and now he spent all his time fighting with the kitchen help, catering to snobs...he was bored, and ready to move on. Then he meets `Babs', a woman who claims she is a guest at one of Reynaldo's bashes. Keaton can't help but find her sexy...
When Ruby Runyon has to make a run for her life from a disastrous date turned worse, she finds herself crashing a party on the Mad Tryst, a boat that just happens to be conveniently close. When she finds herself face to face with the hunky Keaton for the SECOND time, she's so startled she spills her drink all over him. She can't believe she's found a boat with such a hunky guy-her luck must be turning. It's not long before she finds herself heading out to sea on the Mad Tryst, and the fireworks exploding between her and Keaton. Keaton is on a mission to find out Ruby aka Bab's real name, and why she lied about it-twice, so far-when another guest verifies her! This leads to a hilarious ride on the Mad Tryst.
Ruby is a wonderful heroine, spunky and courageous. She's never reached her dream of becoming a movie star in California, but she's pulled herself up from her trailer park beginnings that she can't get over being
Embarrassed over, and works hard at succeeding. Keaton is such an aristocrat, it's hard for him to even imagine how Ruby has gotten to the point she's at, and they're from two so totally different worlds.
Elizabeth Bevarly did a fabulous job of creating a fairy tale romance-the Cinderella meets her fair-haired Prince. And although Keaton isn't a Prince, compared to where Ruby comes from, he might as well be. A wonderful story, with hilarious lines starting on the first page, this book flies by in a fun romp. This is a not to be missed Contemporary Romantic comedy!

4.0 out of 5 stars amusing contemporary romance 2 April 2002
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Miami waitress Ruby Runyon feels as if a miracle has occurred when Jimmy Golden takes her out on a second date. Ruby gets a lot of first dates, but never seconds because her companions expect her to jump into their bed based on her background, but when she refuses they never return. Dreaming of becoming Mrs. Golden and escaping the trailer park, Ruby learns that Jimmy is married and has mob connections. Needing to flee her date, Ruby crashes a yacht party that leaves for the Bahamas.

On the yacht is Keaton Danning, a former advisor to a King and now garbage control expert to the egotistical hedonistic exiled Prince of Pelagia. Keaton finds the stowaway charming and humorous as she spouts nonsense. As they become acquainted on the sea voyage, Ruby and Keaton fall in love. However, he is a blueblood who can trace ancestors forever while her blood contains trailer fumes making genealogists fear what is in her tree. This makes anything permanent seem impossible.

TAKE ME, I'M YOURS is an amusing contemporary romance that fans of jocular tales will enjoy because of the warmth and humor of the charcaters. The key cast members sailing on the yacht feel genuine particularly the bantering between the lead duo mindful of a modern day Gable-Lombard. The support cast, notably the Prince's fiancee, provide a unique look at them. Elizabeth Bevarly provides her readers with a wonderful tale that never takes itself seriously even the romance.

2.0 out of 5 stars My first and last from this author 8 Sep 2008
By s.a.h.momma - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Elizabeth Bevarly has a different kind of sense of humor. For the most part, I happen to like it. I thought most of her comedic attempts were pretty funny. What was not funny was the absolutely boring way she went on and on about things that didn't need any elaboration.

This book has 2 love stories. The main being about "trailer-trash" Ruby stumbling upon a stuck-up, well-to-do man, Keaton, who works for a prince. Can they get over their different pasts and paths to end up together? The second story is similar but reversed roles. A hoity-toity young girl, Arabella, who is soon to be a princess, tries to fight her feelings for an ordinary run of the mill bartender, Gus, who is head over heels for her.

Over all the point to the end of the story was a great one- it doesn't matter what your past is or what you think you're made of, we're all the same. Status in the world's eye doesn't actual give or take away value from your life. We're all equal. But even with a good point to be made, I couldn't get into this book.

I had to force myself to read this book. I so wanted to get to the end in hopes that it would make it worth it all. It didn't. Although there was one surprise that spiced it up just enough for me not to give this only one star.

The phrase "beating a dead horse" is not even close enough to describe the moments Bevarly would go on and on about people's backgrounds or feelings. I would skip paragraphs because i couldn't stand the redundancy. But even with writing so much... there didn't seem to be much depth to her characters.
It's no the worst book I've ever read, however I will not read anything else from this author.
