"Delicious... her bawdy humour shines through at all times... almost like an old-fashioned comedy of manners - with dollops of sex... settle down and have a rollicking good time. Satisfaction guaranteed!" (Jackie Collins)

I have read the books previous to The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous and found that this fitted in nicely with those. I didnt, however, surpass them in anyway at all. In Riders you loathe Rupert and the way he treats people but by the time you have finished Rivals you realise how great he is; in Polo you just love him more. There are so many characters in the previous three that you really like or dislike so much that they make a huge impact all the way through the novels... Rupert for being so hideous in the first but changing, Taggie who is utterly lovable and Helen who is totally irritating all the way through; but I didnt feel that way about any characters in the book there wasnt anyone that made a huge impact on me in the way the previous books had. I found Lysander quite irritating at times, he really annoying in the way he falls in love three time in the space of a about 600 pages, Kitty is so wet.... you just want to scream LEAVE HIM!! the whole time, and the rest of the cast are so concerend with their looks is ridiculous, i dont think there is one normal sized, normal looking person in the whole of Paradise!
Jilly Cooper's novels are absolutly absorbing, all of them are (i have read Appassionata and am half way through Score! at the moment), but I do find with TMWMHJ that it is too flitty and the story is not a patch on the rest. i do recommend it though as it fits very well with the rest of the novels. It is best to read them in order though as you get to know the characters quite well and when there names are dropped in the next book you find yourself smiling at them getting on so well.
Keep up the good work Jilly, your novels have kept me entertained for weeks now. They are so great you find yourself constantly saying 'Just one more chapter and the lights definatly going off!!'

'The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous' is typical Jilly Cooper. It made laugh, cry, and will undoubtedly leave you wanting more. I have read it many times, and it remains a firm favourite. The tale gallops along, with noble horses, faithful dogs, beautiful women, and a hero to die for! Once agin, we are transported into a world that most of us can only imagine, moving in royal circles, with rock stars, composers, and beautiful people. In the centre of all this decadence, is our hero, Lysander Hawkley, a rogue with a heart of gold. This is a man who just can't say no - to women, wine, horses, and of course, money. I absolutely loved this book, and I recommend it heartily. Well done Jilly!

As an avid Jilly reader, The Man who Made Husbands Jealous has kept me entertained time & time again. Whilst still keeping us upto date with our old favourites like Rupert & Taggie, Jilly introduces us to some delicious new characters. Lysander Hawkley so obviously a man that any women would want to meet, surpassing even Rupert Campbell-Black, with his love of the opposite sex. Rannaldini the most fascinatingly evil character will surely run on & on, he obviously has a major story to tell.
All the female characters are well drawn too. Georgie Maguire, loved by fans worldwide but with as many problems & insecurities as any other women. Kitty Rannaldini downtrodden but so kind, I was longing for her well deserved happy ending. Hermione Harefields character just kept me laughing all the way through the story. Flora Seymour the teenager from hell & so real. A few minor gripes with the seemingly pointless Rachel Levistky character but overall this is Jilly Cooper at her absolute best.

If you're a fan of Jilly Copper and enjoy the Rutshire Chronicles, like Riders and Rivals, you'll should enjoy this. While the incorrigible Rupert Campbell-Black and his family feature, our hero is the irrepressible Lysander, who, after an encounter with a lady sadly neglected by her husband, discovers a talent for bringing back miscreant husbands to their wives. Rather than making a hobby of it, his best friend persuades him to make a career of it, and Lysander ventures forth, capturing hearts, losing his own and rattling husbands. While mending marriages in the most bizarre way ever, will Lysander find happiness for himself?

Format: Paperback
The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous probably does not follow the same formula as the three previous novels as it is not based around a particular subject- i.e. Polo, TV, Showjumping. If you tried to base it around anything, it would probably be classical music, but that is more what Score! is about. This does not defect from a hilarious tale of jealousy, adultery and sheer romance.

The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous tells the tale of twenty-two year old Lysander Hawkley, a ravishing young man who breaks hearts unintentionally and is not your typical Jilly Cooper ladies' man, in the sense that he actually shows compassion to everything and is genuinely nice to animals as well as people. Distraught after the death of his mother, whom he adored, he sinks deeper into promiscuity (and debt), much to the disapproval of his father, David.

So his fat best friend, Ferdie, comes up with an idea- why not pay off his debt and do something that comes naturally to him? Why not get paid to look after cheating husbands' wives, pretend to bed them and make their husbands jealous whilst getting paid a HUGE fee for it. One rule however : DO NOT SLEEP WITH THE WIVES. Lysander decides to ignore this rule.

The business runs smoothly, with Ferdie taking care of the more technical side and the stunning Lysander doing marvellously well at keeping Paradise's husbands interested in their wives. However, it is not all smooth sailing, and Lysander finds love and adultery in all the most unexpected places...

This book marks the return of Rupert and Taggie Campbell-Black, as well as a brand new legacy of characters, such as Ranaldinni (who becomes a main character in the next three books) as well as his wife Kitty and Flora Seymour.
