The modeling world called it the “Rana Look”—the exotic, one-of-a-kind allure that only supermodel Rana Ramsey could deliver. With her green eyes, olive skin, and wildly lustrous auburn hair, Rana posed for ad campaigns and strutted down runways all over the world, naming her own price to sell everything from cosmetics to women’s lingerie. 

But all of that suddenly ended one day when she looked her demanding mother-manager in the eye and said, “Enough.” That was the day Rana packed her things and left New York—and modeling—forever. Settling in Miss Ruby’s boardinghouse in Galveston, Texas, Rana finds success with her own business—and cultivates a new look to go with her new life. Now her beautiful eyes are shielded behind tinted glasses, her famous figure hidden under shapeless dresses, her trademark wild hair falling straight down her back. Rana knows she’ll never attract a man this way, and that’s just fine with her—that is, until Ruby’s nephew, football star Trent Gamblin, moves in to nurse his injured shoulder. Ruggedly handsome, charming, and undeniably charismatic, Trent is the kind of man that Rana finds irresistible—the kind of man she is certain would never look twice at a woman as ordinary as the new Rana.

But to her surprise, Trent seems unfazed by her plain appearance. He’s drawn to a beauty that Rana can’t hide and is determined to learn the mystery behind the elusive, reclusive boarder with the secret past. To do so, he proposes an unusual pact: they will only be friends, nothing more. As the days pass, Rana and Trent are drawn together in a sensual idyll unlike anything either of them has ever known. But the outside world cannot be kept at bay forever. And Rana fears that when Trent learns the truth about her past, he’ll feel betrayed and deceived. Even worse, he’ll never be able to see her as she truly is. Then an unexpected tragedy strikes, and the stakes seem higher than ever. Now they must look deep into each other’s heart to determine if their relationship is just an impossibly erotic dream—or a dream of love come true.

    " Oh poor, pitiful, perfect, beautiful me...Give me a break! I did find this to be sort of a cute read, because of Trent. He was adorable. Rana on the other had was just aggravating. Cute and predictable with no frills. 2.5 stars. Quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darcy | 2/4/2014

    " This was an older book that was a quick read. I really liked Rana right away, Trent was a little too much of a pig for me to really like, but they seemed a good match. I really respected Rana's choice to change her lifestly, but what I really loved was when she ripped Trent a new one, he deserved it and made a great point. "

    " Too silly by half! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/11/2014

    " Rana, supermodel attempts to escape her controlling mother and New York fast paced life by disguising herself as Ana, an unattractive clothes designer. Famous for her "Rana Look" she begins a new life in a small boardinghouse in Texas until the owner's good looking football player shows up. Rana isn't Trents type but he can't help but be attracted to her unaware that under the frumpy clothes and glasses she is exactly what he wants in a woman. This book was silly, sometimes sexy, outdated and unbelievable that a supermodel can hid her looks so well - quick read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/10/2014

    " A young woman makes the decision to become plain looking after having had a successful career as a supermodel. She moves to a small town and rents a room from the Aunt of a famous football player. Hero meets the model as plain Jane and feels confused about his attraction for her, as she is not his type. A cute story. "

    " Ternyata tidak ada istimewanya buku ini. Cenderung sangat datar dan tidak ada konflik. Sayang sekali, pdhl ada potensi utk dibikin greget seandainya alur konfliknya lebih diperdalam. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sannn~~~ | 1/5/2014

    " I don't know why I just didn't love this book. I simply like it but that's all. Maybe I lost the feel because of dragging it too long to finish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eva-chan | 12/13/2013

    " It is definitely suitable for someone who wants something light or simple... But I did like Rana and Trent. And the plot was just short and simple, nothing too complicated :D "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanne | 12/13/2013

    " Early Sandra Brown. Supermodel hiding out from the world as a frump. Predictable. "

    " Romance. That's all there is to it. =) "

    " A quick read, not that bad, not that good either. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Chan | 10/22/2013

    " suka dengan tema yg diambil, tapi bosen bacanya. not my favorite one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqueline | 10/16/2013

    " Enjoyed this oldie. Very typical of its time. One thing I was glad of was at the end when everything came out, the hero listened to her explanation and reacted rationally. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 9/15/2013

    " This was an ok read for a romance. I understand it being dated as it was written in the early 80's but the universal theme to be loved for who you are inside and not outside is timeless. So taking into account the dated clothes and hair I would still reconmend it for a quick read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara | 7/22/2012

    " I wouldn't say I finished this book... more like finished with this book. Well... I thought Sandra Brown might be good when I read Rainwater... but this one defines her as what she is... a formula writer. Oh well. I doubt I'll bother with her again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn Lawrence | 6/25/2012

    " Just bought a bunch of Sandra's early romance novels. Never disapointed with her books. Love that I can read them in one day. On to the next one! "
