Breathing Room by Susan Phillips

Breathing Room

Susan Phillips

A light hearted novel with some lovely descriptive passages. An easy escapist sort of read for all you romantics out there.


'Remind me never to piss you off. Oh, wait, I already did that.' He resisted the urge to destroy that silly hat. Women like Isabel shouldn't wear hats. They should go about the world bareheaded, with a sword in one hand, a shield in the other, and a chorus of angels singing the 'Hallelujah Chorus' behind them.
