I have to say that Walking On the Moon is one of the strangest, most outlandish romances I have ever read and yet it is so well written and the characters are so wonderful that it turned out to be a wonderful, fast paced read. Imagine that you are a world famous chef and you have come to Greece on vacation when one day you are captured by aliens from the future. Do they capture you for your good looks? NO, they capture you because they saw your cooking show on TV and are starving because none of them can cook. This is the situation that Claudia Cameron finds herself in. She in outraged when she is kidnapped by drunken aliens and taken to the mother ship, yet some how she eventually is charmed and then falls head over heels in love with one of them. Who can ever figure love out? Deny Duchamp is head of a secret engineering project when his space ship secretly lands on earth to re-supply and his miners get shore leave- read big mistake here! When they return to the ship Deny discovers Claudia has been kidnapped. Unfortunately, it is too late to return her to earth so Claudia is along for the ride. Good thing she can cook. Together Claudia and Deny are tortured by the author as the two of them are thrown together in situation after situation.

Susan Sizemore’s newest romance is a laugh out loud riot, which left me breathless. While at times a tad unbelievable, this book was full of interesting characters including a supply officer that is a bunny and a grumpy captain that is full of surprises. The plot is a little slow at times but really turns the tables on traditional romance- it is not often that the woman gets to save the day. What a wonderful departure from the norm. This book was sensual but not too sexy and was a very enjoyable read. I felt the relationship between Deny and Claudia was well developed and the ending was a true surprise. This book ends with a bang no one will see coming. If you love to read quirky romances that deviate from tradition put Walking on the Moon at the top of your list.
