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 never 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. And on her wedding day, no less.

Instead of saying "I do," Lucy flees and hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle plastered with offensive bumper stickers. She's flying into the unknown with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger.

While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up--and fast.

Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house. Here, she hopes to find a new direction . . . and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her. She'll also encounter a beautiful, troubled beekeeper; a frightened young boy; a modern-day evil queen; and a passion that could change her life forever.
