Description

Perennial New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips now provides her fans with The Great Escape from ordinary women's romantic fiction.

One of today's most beloved writers, the incomparable Phillips follows up her utterly beguiling hit, Call Me Irresistible ("Phillips at her very best. Romantic, funny, sexy, and poignant" -Kristin Hannah) with a sequel that's equally impossible to resist. Returning in The Great Escape are some of Phillips's most adored characters, including headstrong, impetuous ex-president's daughter, Lucy Jorik, who's just abandoned her fiance, Ted "Mr. Irresistible" Beaudine, at the altar. Now she's looking for adventure-and perhaps a little romance-embarking on a wild and hilariously unpredictable road trip that begins on the back of a rather menacing-looking stranger's motorcycle. The winner of more Favorite Book of the Year Awards than any other romance author, including Nora Roberts, Susan Elizabeth Phillips offers her fans an Escape to remember, and they'll certainly want to come back for more!

Back cover copy

Lucy Jorik is a champ at not embarrassing her family--not surprising since her mother is one of the most famous women in the world. But now Lucy has done just that. Instead of saying "I do" to the most perfect man she's ever known, Lucy flees the church and hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough-looking stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. At his beach house on a Great Lakes island, Lucy hopes to find a new direction . . . and unlock the secrets of a man who reveals nothing about himself. But as the hot summer days unfold amid scented breezes and sudden storms, she discovers a passion that could change her life forever.
