    1. I'm marking this one as read….unfortunately. I really wish I had my two hours back. What a waste of time, both characters were one dimensional, amoral, idiots. He's got the hots for his sister-in-law. Yet he can't help giving sister-in-law long lingering looks all the while he has his hands up heroine's skirt and his tongue halfway down her throat. She's tired of being a virgin and figures Mr. Stud Muffin can handle the "break-in" since he is uber experienced. She chases him constantly, beggin [...]


    2. 1.5 starsNot fine wineBefore reading this I had no idea a whole book could be about a "sheltered, naive, innocent" woman holding on to her virginity into mid-twenties because the proper thing to do is get married first but suddenly lose control of her body around the almost forty tall, dark, and handsome oil man after being "friends" with him for two years. The bonus part of this story? The storyline to get these two wacky kids together is that our "hero" wants Virgin (referring not to disparage [...]


    3. Gloriously bad, old-timey Harlequin romance that only Diana Palmer could pull off with a straight face. "Hero" spends pretty much three quarters of the book pining for his brother's wife and using doormat, TSTL, heroine as a decoy so he doesn't act on his impulse to bed his sis-in-law. When the play acting the lover's part with heroine gets too real, and too hot, and his guilty conscience prevents him from deflowering the virgin heroine, he oh so romantically proposes marriage to her since he ca [...]


    4. This book has a lot going for it. Friends turned lovers trope added to the H in ?love with his brother’s wife. How this lady escaped the sister/SIL zone into exchanging sad goo goo eyes with the H escaped me. The h is a sweetheart. I won’t want to change anything about her. I loved her parrot (cutest pet ever) and her parents (coolest parents ever). Lovely touches those. In typical DP style the chemistry is fairly scorching and she doesn’t even need the more explicit language or even the a [...]


    5. King and Elissa are friends who soon become lovers. Unfortunately for Elissa, King is or thinks he is in love with his sister in law. Elissa doesn't want to be second best so she rejects his marriage proposal even though she loves him with all her heart. King realizes what he feels for his sister in law is just brotherly affection and that Elissa is the woman he loves but is it too late? A sweet wonderful romance with an adorable heroine and a sexy hero. Sizzling chemistry great couple!!


    6. 4.5 stars, rounded to 5. The lowered rating because it wasn't as perfect as some other DP, even though I loved it beyond words.Boy oh boy. Diana Palmer is the queen of hot, steamy scenes with characters built up exactly the way I like them! I was trying to get myself calmed down so many times throughout the story! XDThis book was perfect, exactly what you expect from the Queen Diana Palmer. It definitely did not disappoint. It was a sweet, super-angsty story about two friends who find out they h [...]


    7. "Fit for a King" is the story of Kingston "King" and Elissa.King is an oil magnate, and Elissa is a fashion designer- both living at the secluded location in Jamaica. They've been unexpected friends for two years, until King asks Elissa to pose as his lover to Ward his sister in law Bess off, who's been coming on to King as her own husband Bobby ignores her, busy with work and trying to defeat King.Now my issue with this book was THE HERO WAS ATTRACTED TO THE SISTER IN LAW! He actually says the [...]


    8. Why do I keep reading Diana Palmer hoping for something different each time? I vacillated between liking and wanting to slap the characters. I also felt like flinging the3 book on occasion.


    9. Readable but ridiculous. I couldn't help but be taken aback by the introduction of the heroine, the virgin spinster fashion designer raised with strict morals by sheltering yet loving missionary parents and whose quirky, sexy designs are only sold by exclusive boutiques and have gathered enough success that she owns a second cottage in Jamaica wherein to rest and renew her artistic sensibilities when she's not living with her parents in their shared Miami home. All right, then; it's one of the t [...]


    10. It wasn't bad. But it wasn't good either. Just plain ridiculous! Around 70-80%, I thought I would end up liking this book since the relationship between the hero and heroine was looking much better, but duh, like usual the hero have to be a jerk first before they finally get to have their HEA. I hate the fact that he slept with the heroine but too caught up with his sister-in-law and left the heroine the minute the other woman called him. What a jerk! And to think that he just asked the heroine [...]


    11. I don't like this book at all. Kingston couldn't make up his mind and he hurts Elissa. He's too caught in Bess and left Elissa in instant when Bess calls him. What a prick. In the end, he didn't even felt guilty and make himself as the victim just because Elissa rejected him out of misunderstanding. I don't like Kingston at all. And Bess, no matter how I try to 'pity' her, I just can't. She's a selfish bitch. Wow.


    12. It has been a long time since I've read anything by Diana Palmer and I had "Fit for a King" on my shelf, so I decided to give it a try. I really wish I hadn't. There was absolutely no character development, the plot was almost nonexistent, and I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out what the point of the book was except for some fairly graphic sexual content. I would not recommend this book to anyone and I'm not sure I'll pick another book up by this author. Two thumbs down!


    13. Elissa and Kingston. This is my first book by Diana Palmer and I really enjoyed it. It had an 'old school romance' feel to it, but with more modernized sentiments. Elissa and Kingston have known each other for a couple years as aquaintance/friends in Jamaica, but I guess Kingston never talked much about his family. Elissa had no idea about his brother's wife, Bess, until things had gotten out of hand. The book starts with her in Kingston's bed in a negligee as he strolls in with Bess. There's a [...]


    14. Elissa Dean is a successful designer of sports clothing, and spends her time between her parents’ home in Florida and her cottage on the beach in Jamaica. When she moved into her cottage she took it upon herself to take care of her neighbour Kingston Roper. King is a loner and he didn’t take kindly to Elissa barging in on his solitude, but he soon found she grew on him and they became good friends. That is, until King needed Elissa to pretend to be his lover in order to discourage his sister [...]



    15. King un tanto retorcido el amor, ilusión o gusto que le provocaba la otra mujer que escapaba, me pareció de mal gusto



    16. Another great oneDiana Palmer is one of my favorite authors. I can get lost in one if her books within the first page. Her characters are always believable, sometimes I would like to reach not the pages and give them each a good shake now and then. But she always brings them to heel eventually.


    17. Well i loathed Bess the weak ninny who is married to Kingston's brother, she is vapid, needy, whiny, boring, inept, unskilled moron, whose only good quality is she is beautiful thats it and we are supposed to think King is in love with herElissa is so much more than that she is funny and pretty and smart and independantshe is friends with King and he includes her to help him keep his sniveling sister in law away from him he is weak over her.e cow eyes and the lingering agonizing looks last the e [...]


    18. Elissa would do anything for Kinston Roper as evidenced by the fact that she was lying in his bed awaiting his arrival. They were not lovers so she found it odd when he called her not long ago requesting that she go to his house and look like she had been waiting for him to resume their tryst. When she heard the door open to his bedroom she was more than surprised to see a beautiful woman come into the room with King closely behind. After knowing King 2 years, she finally was coming face to face [...]


    19. Me gustó el romance, una historia tierna y con personajes que tuvieron una buena química. Es una lectura ligera para leerse en un ratito libre. Lo malo fue la bipolaridad del protagonista masculino y es que King por momentos parecía una mujer histérica e indecisa. Espero la autora haga más creíble la actitud de sus chicos, porque sinceramente a veces parecía la mujer en la relación.Sin embargo se disfruta el libro.


    20. Great chemistryThe characters are well developed, their strengths and weaknesses are believable. All the characters are likeable, even Bess, though I found her to be annoying. Glad she finally grows up. The chemistry between Ellisse and King increases throughout the book and kept me glued down to the last word. Good modern day romance.


    21. I really think this was a good book but there were points that made a tough King, I don't know, Kind of out of character I guess. Anyway to Me this is a Diana Palmer work that everyone should read. I may have read it a long time ago but this is one of the few books I can clearly remember everything that happened and still have the urge to read again.


    22. An oldie Diana Palmer but a goodie. I loved the smart-mouth heroine Elissa, a financially independent fashion designer with a sassy talking parrot and lovely ex-missionary parents. When her friend Kingston (who ranches and also is 'in gas and oil') asks Elissa to distract his sister-in-law from himself, Elissa doesd the old friends to lovers trope kicks in. Catnip for romance readers.


    23. Not my favorite of Diana Palmer, but not bad. Kingston is just confused and a little lost. Elissa is a up and coming 20 something, and isn't sure what is going on. Worth the time, but again there are better.


    24. I loved the book up until (spoilers start here) until King runes out for his sister in law after that it was justah well. And at the end their speech or more his end of the speech was to sweet for the bad boy that he was written he was. Nevermind me


    25. WOW! ONE OF THE BEST DIANA PALMER BOOKS I HAVE READ!!There wasn't the usual amount of angst she writes with in this one, but rather a gentleness can be seen to grow throughout the book. A gentle, yet teasing romance;)5+++ stars! and a definite keeper for me!!


    26. Diana Palmer was an exceptional writer even in 1987. Her writing keeps the interest from the beginning to the end of the novel.



    27. The story line was interesting enough, but a lot of repeated information. Once or twice is fine but, over and over again is too much
