Product Description

Curious people want to know: is dashing millionaire Rory Kincaid about to resign his position as the "sexiest man in town"? If Rory decides to step down as the most eligible bachelor in America, millions of women will be left crying on his way to the altar...

Rory Kincaid has everyone talking...and the women swooning. After a lifetime of living down his family's scandalous past, the handsome public figure decides to take up the mantle of respectability. But first he must survive the scandal caused by a curvy siren named Jilly Skye.

With her snug, vintage clothes and free-spirited ways, Jilly can't quite discover why Rory makes her feel so....tingly. Though he's far from an antique, no one that tempting should appear so stodgy. When the two are caught on film in a distinctly compromising position, Jilly agrees to pose as his fiancee -- at least until his reputation gets back in order.

But neither of them counted on love...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nearly a Desert Isle Keeper! 6 Jan 2001
By Laurie Gold - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I always find it exciting to be swept away by a book I didn't expect much from, and this "forced engagement" romance didn't look promising in the year 2001. But author Christy Ridgway's THIS PERFECT KISS turned out to be the perfect book to kick off a new year of romance reading, and provided not one but two romances to savor.
Millionaire Rory Kincaid will be running for the Senate and has worked his entire life to separate himself from the scandals surrounding his parents and grandparents. Jilly Skye was raised by a grandmother whose daughter was nothing but a scandal; Jilly does not know that love can exist without pain and coercion. When the two meet and are forced into an engagement in order to prevent a new scandal from sullying the Kincaid name, the attraction threatens both Jilly and Rory down to the core.
THIS PERFECT KISS is an intense read. Both Jilly and Rory are fully-fleshed characters filled with internal contradictions. Rory's four year old...Aunt, who acts as catalyst to the story, both for Jilly and Rory and the secondary romance that develops between two other characters, brings both humor and pathos to the book.
I don't grant Desert Isle Keeper status very often - lately only once or twice a year - and this book was on the cusp. It settled on the B+ rather than the A- side because, as good as the story eventually became, it took just a little too long to fully engage me. Still, for readers looking for strong characters, terrific chemistry, and a strong balance between lighter and darker elements, I strongly recommend THIS PERFECT KISS.

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK Read! 11 Feb 2001
By Christine Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After thoroughly enjoying the author's previous novel "Wish You Were Here", I looked forward to "This Perfect Kiss". I was somewhat disappointed with Christie's latest effort. Although this book had its moments, they were too few. I felt the plot was weak and dragged on with a rushed ending. The main characters, who were adults and supported established careers, were too immature and naive for my taste and I felt the author missed some golden opportunities to write a few scenes around the webcam and Jilly's Victorian underwear. I thought this was an OK read and I would recommend it but felt it was not up to par for this talented author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect read! 12 Feb 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
THIS PERFECT KISS is a perfect read for those who love witty, wonderful romance. The characters are quirky, charismatic, and just plain fun, and the situtations they find themselves in are equally fun. Further, there's a wonderful secondary plot entailing the hero's 4-year-old aunt that simply warms the heart. THIS PERFECT KISS really is a book not to be missed--a perfect Valentine's Day treat as yummy as chocolate, but not nearly as fattening!

5.0 out of 5 stars An amusing but semi-serious drama 6 Jan 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Atherton, California software millionaire Rory Kincaid avoids scandal as if it is E-bola after observing the disreputable role models of his father and grandfather. Between the two older Kincaids, there were eleven known marriages while at thirty-two, Rory has stayed single. Still, the tabloids would love a hint of scandal associated with Rory. With the recent death of his grandfather, Rory becomes guardian of his four-year-old aunt.

Rory decides to clean out the family Caidwater mansion by ridding it of old costumes. He hires Jilly Skye, a vintage clothing dealer, to sell the items. However, Jilly arrives in a low cut dress that reveals her "ahems". Immediately attracted to the woman and not just her two puppies, Rory kisses Jilly, which could end his run as the Blue Party's candidate for US Senator.

At times amusing and at other times poignant, THIS PERFECT KISS works because the charcaters and their emotional baggage seem genuine. The story line is fun as Rory struggles with his growing need for Jilly vs. his political ambitions vs. his fear of sharing the genes of his sires. Christie Ridgeway writes an amusing but semi-serious drama that hinges on whether love can help two individuals overcome childhood trauma.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uptight Male meets Victorian Underwear Women - and sparks fly 30 Oct 2005
By cb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
`The Perfect Kiss' by Christie Rodgway is the story of Rory and Jilly and secondary story of Kim and Greg. Rory and Grey are the infamous Kincaid brothers who come from the pure Hollywood scandalous family. Rory plans to announce his adamancy for Senator when he returns home to settle the estate of his lecherous grandfather. Jilly owns a Vintage clothing store and agrees to sort through all his historian clothing and finds herself pretending his to be fiancé with special privileges. Grey and Kim fell in love when Kim was married to Greg's grandfather. Kim (Jilly's partner in Vintage clothing store) and Greg have not seen each other in over four years and sparks fly. I read this book in a day and enjoyed every moment. This author brings you humor, great love scenes and pure Hollywood weirdness.
