"A delightful romp"
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 characters. 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.
