Because You're Mine (Capital Theatre #2)
Young, high-spirited Lady Madeline Matthews is expected to wed an aging, lecherous lord. But she would rather shame herself in the eyes of society than sacrifice her freedom, and resolves to render herself unmarriageable by indulging in a torrid affair with Britain's most acclaimed actor and notorious womanizer, Logan Scott.

I was very surprise to see this book sitting on my TBR shelf and it being a Lisa Kleypas book to boot! The horror! But it was worth the wait as like all of Lisa Kleypas works, I was quickly drawn into the story....more

I wasn't disappointed in this story at all. It was entertaining and engaging. But the characters! They brought me no end of grief. I just couldn't empathize with either of them!
I kept judging them over and over.
Here's all the terrible things I thought of Madeline:
You might not think that the last one is an insult but in this case it is. Her...more
I love that she does an excellent job of showing the different class structures. She also seems to be meticulous about accurate details, which add authenticity to the story line. I also like the fact that all the women in her book have a backbone. They dare to go outside the social norms to do what is best for them. This book is a perfect example. Madeline Matthews runs away from boarding school after she is forced into a betrothal with a disgusting older man. She decides to ruin herself b...more
Kleypas has written maybe 40 books...I've read at least 25 of them, and I've yet to find two that are alike. No wonder the We Love Lisa Kleypas gro...more
The second half is a whole different story. The "hero" Logan became such an ass that I could barely finish this book.
I know I'm alone on this according to the Goodreads ratings but I do not enjoy forcing sex on someone in the name of romance no matter what his true feelings are and even if her body betrays her and she enjoys it in the end. I found the whole thing t...more
I think my favorite thing about this novel is how early on the couple commits to one another.
I love Logan. Love him. There's something very compelling about his strength. Especially once he falls in love with Maddy. All that protective masculinity focused in one place...hot.
Maddy was somewhat misguided in the beginning, but she was the perfect match for Logan. I loved how she made herself vulnerable to Logan...more
I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
Lisa Kleypas really caught the feel of the theatre and what life as an actor was like.
Back in the regacy or Victorian era, being an actor wasn't really considered a great thing as it is today, by the upper class such as the dukes, lords and ladies.
Logan Scott, a famous actor, has strived to be in with the ton
for years, having been abused as a child to a poor tenant farmer, he always hide his feelings and kept a cool, undaunted apperence.
The reason I like this book so much is because Logan tries so very very hard to re...more
Gimana tidak, walaupun angkuh, nyebelin, penuh kuasa dan juga superior dari luar, tapi perasaannya sangat rapuh. Dia terlalu takut kehilangan Madeline hingga lebih rela bersikap keras dan kasar hanya demi mencegah hatinya terikat dengan wanita tokoh utama kita. Memang cara yang digunakan Madeline untuk mendekati Logan salah pada awalnya, niat yang salah, tetapi kepolosan dan juga kebaikan hati dari Madeline mampu meluluhkan kekerasan Logan. Padahal...more

I'm not going to lie, what drove me to this book was the new edition covers. I am starting to become a fan of Lisa Kleypas, because she writes so beautifully and is very detailed. She brings in this atmosphere of romance and resistance that is seen between the main characters of Maddy and Logan, and the tension between them is like...more
An engaging and sweet romance between two people, who in normal circunstances would never get to know one another.
Presenting the naive, but determined heroine: At eighteen, Madeline Mathews wants more of life, than to be married to a fiftiesh and lecherous lord, as her parents intend to. So when she sees a portrait by London's famous actor, Logan Scott, she decides, to embark in an affair with him, (in order to become ruined at society's eyes), in order to avoid the dreadfull marriage....more
Maddy was spirited...and so sweet. She was shocked when she decided on her bit of rebellion...but there was no way she could marry the creepy old guy that her parents were forcing on her.
She decided that the gorgeous owner/actor/director of the Capitol Theater would be a good choice to ruin her.
Logan is attracated to her but fights it.
Her plans fall apart when she falls in love with him.
Lots of things for them both to overcome.
A very fun j...more
Logan was quite hard to understand and love because he can be quite harsh to be a true English gentleman. But when he started to fall for Maddy, I started to fall for him.
An absolute wonderful read!

“It used to be love.” He brushed his lips over her closed eyelids. “Now there's no word for it.”
“You once told me that you thought love was a weakness.”
“I was wrong,” he whispered, kissing the corners of her mouth. “I've discovered it's my only strength.”
