Being the daughter of the former president of the United States isn't easy - and not nearly as much fun as it might seem. No one knows this better than the perfect Lucy Jorik. A dutiful, responsible daughter (so unlike her best friend, Meg Koranda!), Lucy has always done the right thing: attending the right school, earning the right grades, landing the right guy. But on her wedding day to Ted Beaudine - a.k.a. Mr. Irresistible, the pride of Wynette, Texas-Lucy did the impossible. She took off, leaving the would-be groom at the altar. While she's thrilled that Ted and Meg have found true love with each other, Lucy is more than ready for an adventure of her own. Still, when a menacing-looking stranger on a motorcycle offers her a ride, should she really say yes? In this dazzling follow up to "Call Me Irresistible", Susan Elizabeth Phillips tells Lucy's story - a rollicking road trip full of hilarious mishaps, unexpected fun, and sizzling romance in which a young woman breaks free of her proper life to discover what she really wants-and dares to find it!

"No one tops Susan Elizabeth Phillips" -- Jayne Ann Krentz "...intelligent, funny and hot enough to make you sigh." -- People "With her latest flawlessly written romance, Phillips delivers the kind of complex, realistically complicated characters and richly emotional love story her fans have come to expect. Fueled with incendiary sexual chemistry, and deliciously witty, The Great Escape is another jewel from one of the genre's most incandescent stars." -- Booklist (starred review) With brilliant dialog, sassy humor, and laserlike insight into what makes people tick, Phillips gifts readers with an engrossing, beautifully written romance that satisfies on all levels. Another winner from a stellar writer who never disappoints. -- Library Journal (starred review) Phillips' signature mix of complicated characters, sexual chemistry and emotionally compelling writing is irresistible. -- Chicago Tribune

The dazzling sequel to Susan Elizabeth Phillips's beloved bestsellerCall Me Irresistible

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.
