Ted Beaudine is a VERY Irresistible Hero!
Susan Elizabeth Phillips blog along!

Heroes Are My Weakness the newest Susan Elizabeth Phillips release is almost here! Oh the anticipation. I posted last week on one of my favorite SEP heroes, Dean Robillard from Natural Born Charmer.

This week I am here to discuss one of her most irresistible heroes.... none other than, Ted Beaudine from Call Me Irresistible- Wynette, Texas Book #6 (commence the swooning ladies!)

R.S.V.P to the most riotous wedding of the year...

Lucy Jorik is the daughter of the former president of the United States.

Meg Koranda is the offspring of legends.

One of them is about to marry Mr. Irresistible- Ted Beaudine- the favorite son of Wynette, Texas. The other is not happy about it and is determined to save her friend from a mess of heartache.

But even though Meg knows that breaking up her best friend's wedding is the right thing to do, no one else seems to agree. Faster than Lucy can say "I don't," Meg becomes the most hated woman in town- a town she's stuck in with a dead car, an empty wallet, and a very angry bridegroom. Broke, stranded, and without her famous parents at her back, Meg is sure she can survive on her own wits. What's the worst that can happen? Lose her heart to the one and only Mr. Irresistible? Not likely. Not likely at all.

My Thoughts:
Born the son of Francesca Day and Dallie Beaudine (Fancy Pants), Ted Beaudine was destined to be irresistible. He is the perfect son of legends and she is the adopted daughter of the first female president of the United States. Ted and Lucy have a relationship made in PR heaven.. until their cancelled wedding becomes the town scandal!

Ted Beaudine is the epitome of your classic romance hero, classically sexy, this guy knows how to do everything right.. he was doing it straight from the womb... or so say the people of Wynette. When Teddy walks down the street everyone sighs, he is a very swoon worthy hero.

Ted and Lucy have a comfortable relationship, but Meg sees that the passion is missing and when she points this out to Lucy... on her wedding day...the little doubt Lucy had been feeling multiplied, and she bolts, leaving Meg behind to endure the fallout.

Meg finds herself financially cut off from her parents and stuck in a town where everyone blames her for the breakup of their very own first couple. Ted's treatment of Meg from the start is a little un-hero like. The more time these two spend together the more sparks fly- proving true that opposites do attract.

Ted is fine with the situation when he is the one causing Meg distress, but once he sees others are also targeting her, in very heroic fashion his protective instincts come to the forefront. Meg may want to get out of Wynette, but after a few weeks with Mr. Irresistible her heart may have a different itinerary.

I gave this book 5 STARS the first time I read it and 6 STARS  (on a 5 scale) the second time around! I love a book that never gets old, no matter how many times I've read it and this book is certainly fits into that category for me. (PS >>>I highly recommend also listening to the audio version of this book, even if you've already read the book. I love the voices that the narrator gives to these characters!)

  1. Ted is my favorite SEP hero, too! I have read the book a couple of times. I would not throw Dallie back, either! That whole Wynette, Texas series is great. :)
