Because You're Mine (Capital Theatre #2)
"I don't care about your conscience. All I want is for you to kiss me again."
Lady Madeline Matthews would rather shame herself than sacrifice her freedom—which is why, to avoid a marriage to an aging, lecherous lord, she seeks out the company of Logan Scott. A torrid affair wi ...more

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
***Might be some general SPOILERS bellow.***
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:

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 loved this book so much! It was full of angst and love! Logan was such a tortured soul in need of love but just couldn't allow himself to love or be loved in return. Once he met Maddy, he was a goner but he fought against it. Poor guy, he was in desperate need of love and ughh! Yes, he was cruel to Maddy but she did break his trust and he had his own reasons for being the way he was.
Maddy, Maddy, Maddy.... I got so much second hand embarrassment from this one... She was such a na ...more

One thing you can guarantee and rest assured in when reading in the Romance Fiction genre is that you're going to get a happy ending. Just like watching a movie with a superstar cast, you know the headlining actors, whatever the story's direction, won't be eliminated before the end. So is a similar knowledge for the Romance novel. There will be love, passion and a happy ending. Thankfully, as I've seen so far, Lisa Kleypas novels have a bonus, a good story.

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
Perhaps I've read almost all books from Lisa Kleypas and this book in comparison is not her best. But the fact that some scenes really made me touched was undeniable.
I liked the times when she had to choose between her direction and Logan's life. I loved the character of Mrs Florence but I have issues on Andrew's ...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.
Lady Mad ...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

Logan is a charismatic character. Not just because his character is an actor. This is a hero that commands the scene. I really don't care whether the hero is rich or nobility. That is not what defines a man. What defines a man is his character and that, Logan ...more
First Read: 13 March 2016
I loved Logan. I ADORED Logan and Maddy together. They made a heavenly romantic couple. From the first book I knew Logan had to have his happiness. He needed love then and he needed love now. Maddy was a perfect cure for his aversion of love. Maddy was reall ...more

“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.”
