Produktbeschreibungen

From Booklist

Jack Walker has given up his playboy status and, much to his Machiavellian mother's delight, become engaged to a wealthy socialite. Now mommy dearest can go ahead with her plans to make him governor of Massachusetts. But the best-laid plans often go offtrack, and in this case the cause of the derailment is art conservationist Callie Burke. The minute Jack lays eyes on her, he forgets everything, including his politically acceptable fiancee. He hires Callie to restore a recently acquired John Singleton Copley portrait of one of his ancestors and moves her into his mansion so she can work uninterrupted on the $5 million art treasure, but both Callie and the painting conceal secrets. Bird, author of Heart of Gold [BKL My 1 03], presents another fine, emotion-filled romance about two people whose pasts stand in the way of present happiness. Readers who appreciate books rich in strong feelings, such as those by Barbara Freethy, Kathryn Shay, and Judith McNaught, will also enjoy this tale. Shelley Mosley

Kurzbeschreibung

Art conservator Callie Burke's new assignment is restoring a masterpiece owned by ruthless, wealthy, and sexy politico Jack Walker. When she's persuaded to move into Jack's sprawling estate to finish the job, a mere business proposition turns into something far more complicated-and passionate.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lest es, unbedingt! 24. Dezember 2011
Von star dust TOP 500 REZENSENT VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Eine Rezension zu diesem Buch zu schreiben fällt mir schwer, da es
mir so gut gefallen hat, dass ich meine Objektivität verloren habe und
meine Worte bezüglich des Buchglücks, es gelesen zu haben, nicht ausreichen.

Zur Story: zwei Menschen, wie sie unterschiedlicher kaum sein können,
treffen aufeinander. Jack Walker,38 Jahre jung, ein erfolgreicher, gnadenloser Business-
man, unwiderstehlich gut aussehend, ein womanizer, mit Ambitionen, in die
Politik zu gehen, stinkreich, umgeben von Luxus und Oberflächlichkeit,
aber auch von Macht, Neid und Missgunst.
Und da ist Callie, Restauratorin, 27 Jahre jung, sexy as hell, aber nicht im
herkömmlichen Sinn. Sie hat Persönlichkeit, ist voller Leidenschaft für ihre
Arbeit, ist mausearm, arbeitet in einen New Yorker Kunstgalerie, wohnt in einem
schäbigen Viertel, hat beide Eltern verloren und ein Familiengeheimnis zu hüten.

Diese beiden treffen aufeinander und zwischen ihnen herrscht sofort diese
Anziehung, die den Verstand ausschaltet. Beide versuchen natürlich sich
nichts anmerken zu lassen, doch ihre Reaktionen aufeinander, in vermeintlich
harmlosen Situationen, sprechen Bände. Blöd nur, dass Jack zwar sein Playboyleben
vor einem Jahr beendet hat, dieser Grund aber auch einen Namen trägt: Grace,
seine Verlobte.
Als Jack Callie zwecks einer Bildrestauration nicht nur anheuert, sondern auch
auf seinen Wohnsitz Nähe Boston bringt, geht das Gefühlschaos los.

Mehr möchte ich zur Story nicht Schreiben, da ich euch die Spannung nicht nehmen
möchte.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Vorgänger der Black Dagger-Serie 3. Januar 2012
Von Merle TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Der Schreibstil ist gekonnt und das Buch ist gut geschrieben, wie in Ward's Fantasy-Serie.

Die mausarme Bilderrestauratorin Callie Burke, illegitimer und versteckter Spross eines reichen und einflussreichen Vater, erhält den Auftrag, das Gemälde des Ahnen eines reichen und einflussreichen Playboys, von seinem Vater ebenfalls missachtet, zu restaurieren. Callies anfängliche Abneigung verändert sich, je näher sie ihn kennenlernt.

Wer Romance mag, dem kann ich das Buch wärmstens empfehlen, es gehört zu den Besseren. Handlung hat es recht wenig, es beschreibt vor allem die Interaktionen der beiden Protagonisten, dies gekonnt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Now it is Callie's turn for a story... 12. Februar 2004
Von Detra Fitch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The story begins the day after a lavish gala hosted by the Hall Foundation. Callie Burke is an art conservator who had just been handed a job offer that could easily make her career! Grace Woodward Hall introduced Callie to Jackson "Jack" Walker during the gala. Jack had just purchased back a famous painting that had been sold off by his own father years ago. Knowing Grace would not have introduced Callie to work on the conservation of the painting if she was less than excellent, he immediately offers the job. But Callie knows Jack's playboy background and knows danger when she sees it. Even so, she ends up accepting and travels to his mansion, Buona Fortuna, to work on the painting.
The attraction between the two is obvious to those around, including Jack's stuck up mother, Mercedes. Jack became engaged to a lady of his own class only three weeks prior and Mercedes could not have been more displeased to see how Jack reacted to Callie, so beneath him in class. But Jack always gets what he wants and he wants Callie from the moment he first saw her. He is even willing to break off his engagement to prove he prefers Callie.
But is he really a new, improved, socially responsible Jack Walker? Or is he still a playboy? And can he ever accept the secret Callie has kept hidden her entire life?
***** Callie Burke and Jack Walker were introduced in the romantic suspense book, "An Unforgettable Lady", which hit book stores only a few weeks ago. You do not need to read the previous book, which is Grace and John's story, to totally understand this one though. Both books easily stand alone. However, this story will mean more to you if you do read both books. Grace and "John" are secondary characters in this novel, along with another hot bachelor, Gray.
The author succeeds in giving each character their own personality, which is not an easy thing to accomplish! No suspense in this tale, but the plot rolls along at a wonderful pace and the reader never has time to get bored. Recommended to all! Now if only Gray could someday get his own story told. *****

3.0 von 5 Sternen NOT QUITE IRRESISTIBLE 16. August 2010
Von Buggy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Written in 2004 An Irresistible Bachelor is the companion book to Jessica Bird (JR Ward's) AN UNFORGETTABLE LADY. Each can easily be read as stand-alones however you'll get much more out of this one if you read them in order. Having said that I should also tell you that while I loved Grace and particularly John from the first book, Jack and Callie's romance here was a major disappointment and has turned out to be my least favourite Bird/Ward book to date. Unfortunately I just couldn't ever get a feel for them as a couple, and without the suspense factor from the last book or any real notable sexual tension this time, the dreary storyline involving art restoration, family secrets and multi-billionaire businessmen running for governor just wasn't enough to hold my interest.

However this is still Ward writing, so while the plot never grabbed me it does of course have its moments, they're just few and far between. For example I learned everything I ever (didn't) want to know about restoring art. Thankfully there are some great secondary characters; like Jack's meddling mother, a one armed chef and Artie the dog. My wannabe boyfriend John Smith shows up again although he doesn't get to speak and we meet Gray, who had me wondering if he was the same Grayson Bennett from The Moorehouse Legacy book (His Comfort And Joy?) Speaking of which we also get a brief cameo from Spike (A Man In A Million) In the end though when you care more about a little dog and cameo spotting then the heroes you know you're in trouble and it was with a lot of eye rolling that I finished this book.

Callie Burke is a struggling art conservationist so when she's given the chance to restore a world famous painting she of course jumps at the offer. This job could make her whole career however she probably should have also considered that's she'd be working with its owner too; multi-billionaire (really!? Multi Billionaire?? Is that much money really necessary, what's wrong with just a plain ole millionaire?? Anyways Callie's going to be working alongside the notorious womanizer Jack Walker. She's determined to keep things strictly professional, after all he is engaged but he's also just so damn sexy. Now she just has to make sure he doesn't learn her secret. Dun dun dah...

Jack Walker is a practical man (who BTW was way more interesting in An Unforgettable Lady) He runs his life and fortune effortlessly and except for the occasional fight with his interfering, live in mother and some bad driving skills doesn't foresee anything changing. That is until the moment he sets eyes on Callie. He wants her like he's never wanted anything before and the more he gets to know her the more he also realizes what his life is missing. This isn't just infatuation and to prove it he's willing to end his engagement even if that damages his chances of becoming a mayoral candidate. Will he ever be able to overcome his former reputation and convince Callie that he really loves her? And what the hell has she done to his painting; she was supposed to be a professional

5.0 von 5 Sternen And the story continues...... 24. August 2006
Von Hoosiergirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is great. This book answered the questions that were left unanswered in "An Unforgettable Lady". The story moves on, and fills in what you wonder about from the 1st one.

I fell in love with Jack. I kinda disliked him in the first book because of his playboy ways, but then he redeemed himself when his own story was told.

Great read. Buy it today!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is why I read romance books 14. Januar 2010
Von J. Enyeart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I had not liked a book I read for quite a while now and was starting to think it was just me, until I read this book. This book was fantastic!! It's what I love about romance books. I read this author under her other name, JR Ward and I love those books as well. She is just a very talented writer that develops great characters and stories. I didn't want this one to end. All of her books either written as JR Ward or Jessica Bird are worth reading and you will truly enjoy them. The sexual tension she builds causes tingles and the love scenes are just right, the hero makes you swoon. The heroine is likable and you could see why he fell in love with her(unlike some books where the heroine is so shrewish you wonder what the appeal is). I am downloading the rest of Jessica Birds books on my kindle. I don't even care what they're about. :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jessica Bird creates An Irresistible Bachelor 2. Dezember 2011
Von Kathy Davie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Second in the Unforgettable Lady romance series revolving around a group of friends and their families on the East Coast.

Another warm and intelligent romance from Bird between two people one of whom combines the artistic with the scientific while the other is ruthless in business. It explores the insecurities of a woman fed up with secrets yet unable to throw off a lifetime of keeping them while it delights in a man's first experience with love. No real surprise there after reading of his parents!

Ward continues to use misperception between Jack and Callie to create the greatest tension although Callie's accident with the painting incorporated a good bit of fear. What I don't understand is why Jack didn't throw his mother's origins back at her?! Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! Nor why Callie didn't get on the phone to Grace a lot sooner.

I appreciate Ward not insulting us or her intelligent characters' understanding of the realities of political campaigning. I also adored Jack continually stepping up to defend Callie!

The cover definitely gives off that playboy air with Jack Walker looking out at us, his shirt unbuttoned to display a gorgeous chest and his bow tie undone as he stands at the foot of a curving staircase. Jack definitely has the look of a determined and sexy man with that five o'clock shadow and his assessing gaze.

The title sums up what An Irresistible Bachelor Jack Walker is as well as an indicator of the reputation he must overcome with both Massachusetts and Callie.
