"Tonight is the night" I am going to finish this book. I can't believe I have spent too much time to finish it. I have just 38 pages left and all I want to do is this:

I hope to finish it as fast as I can ñ_ñ


FINALLY I finished this book!!!! Oh Lord! I was tired of it. I think I am going to take a break for a while with Lisa's books and historical romances. This story left me overwhelmed :(

Alec Falkner, duque de Hamilton acude a la casa de un amigo suyo, William Sakville para una cacería, allí conoce a la misteriosa amante del lord Mira Germain por la que sentirá una especial atracción. Alec está dispuesto a conquistarla pero Mira esconde secretos que quiere ocultar a toda costa.
Tengo que decir que no me suelen defraudar los libros de Lisa Kleypas, eso sí hay algunos que me gustan más y otros menos, éste quedaría entre dos aguas. En cuanto a ambientación y forma de narrar la autor

This one is easy to sum up: very sweet with a hint of mystery.

Kleypas’s first novel, Where Passion Leads, had a rape scene in the second chapter so I was teensy bit hesitant to read this one (her second novel), especially since several of the characters from WPL made a reappearance in this book. But fortunately, nobody got raped and there wasn’t even a hint of violent behavior directed at the heroine by the hero. There were misunderstandings galore (of course!) and several biting remarks made b
i truly have NO idea why is this book not popular! i guess thats because the beginning is pretty confusing and not really likable... (view spoiler) it is a little bit hard to get through first 30-40 pages maybe a little less... BUT after that XD oh what comes after that :D

the hero of the book is Alexander (Alec) Faulkner hes a duke of something xD but who cares about his dukedom!!! the man is eve

There are times I wanted to hate Alec....there are times I wanted to choke Mira for refusing to share things with Alec....but in all what is wonderful about characters that Kleypas writes is that you fall in love with them despite their flaws...I loved the book although it lacked the polish of her later had the refreshing quality only a novice writer can pull only complain was that she didn't resolve Leila's disappearance....does anyone know if she did it in ano ...more

This is the second book from the Berkley-Faulkner series, one of Lisa Kleypas's early works and I liked this better than Where Passion Leads, the one about Rand and Rosalie.

Reading about this made me anxious and tense, but it also made me happy. I've mentioned time and again that all LK novels end with a happy ending. Some characters develop and some don't. Comparing this with the previous one, which was more character driven, this book focused more on the story, the mystery about Mireille, who'

Creo que es uno de los primeros libros publicados por Lisa Kleypas pero, para mi sorpresa, me gustó mucho!! Hay cosas del estilo de escritura que han cambiado con el tiempo pero la esencia está presente y los personajes (en especial el masculino) son adorables

Mira Germain is posing as a rich, influential, and elderly lord's mistress when she literally bumps into Alec Faulker. Immediately a sizzling attraction begins, though Alec feels disdain for Mira’s ‘occupation’. Unable to resist this petite Frenchwoman, Alec and Mira begin sneaking away to spend time together. Secrets from Mira’s past eventually tie them together in such a way that might jeopardize their happily ever after.

This is the second book in the Berkley-Faulkner series by Lisa Kleypas one of the Queens of HR. I think its better to read in order, that way you can understand the relationships between people. I didn't read in order and I had no clue who Rosalie and Randall Berkley, and the connection they had with Mira, until later on. There were parts in this book that I went ohhh~ she should have put this in but its not my story to tell but it seriously would have been better if those parts were fixed. This ...more

My second oldie by Lisa Kleypas, and I have to admit that this one was much more to my tastes than the other one I've read so far, Love, Come to Me.

It's clear that this is an early book by LK, seeing as there are some aspects that are underdeveloped and in need for a drastic new version. But still, I'm glad LK hasn't gotten to the task yet to rewrite these stories, as I find it particularly interesting to see for myself how the writing style of such an seasoned author can change over time.

I have read more than 9 books of lisa Kleypas , & I had only good words for her ..... until I read this one ...
I get it ,its some of her earlier works , & she improved a lot since than , and I am very glad , she has turned out to be one of my favorite authors , and I had so much faith in her , that I decided to read some of her less reviewed work & I can see why its not in top list.

The story is about a dominating man, who always gets what he wants & a strong woman who tries to su

Mmm...sukaan ini deh drpd book 1-nya, meski d bagian2 akhir si Mira bikin jengkel coz mau2 aja diperas sama Guillaume and ujung2nya minggat dari rumah. Apa susahnya jujur sih?

Ooooohhh...ya, di buku ini lumayan banyak pesta dansanya, tapi kok gak menjemukan kyak bikinan pengarang lain ya? Asik-asik aja bacanya.

OUR HERO is a Duke and prominent architect who basically has the ton at his feet and he can come off as arrogant, judgemental and very straightforward in his manners. He can be nice or he can be brutal towards the people he socialises with, especially women. He attends a friend's hunting event and meets Mira who is so unlik

En mi opinión, el peor libro de Lisa Kleypas. Me encanta esta autora, pero este libro es una pesadilla. No he podido terminarlo. Los personajes son interesantes, pero la historia es muy lenta. Se me ha hecho eterno. Más largo que un día sin pan.

In her previous life she was Mireille Germain, the girl who helped Lord Berkeley with his now wife Rosalie and became her friend against all odds. But when her brother Guillaime betrayed them all, Mireille ran away yet again and struggled until Lord Sackville rescued her, and now out of gratitude she pretends to be his mistress so he can save face in society.

Ini adalah salah satu karya Lisa K yang paling saya suka. Memang suasananya rada “gloomy”, dan perjalanannya terasa suram, tidak seperti novel2 bergenre sejenis yang dipenuhi letupan2 perasaan cinta.

Yang menjadi sorotan saya adalah sang Hero, si Alec, yang benar seperti perkataan ibunya, ia adalah tipe orang yang selalu ingin segala sesuatu dalam hidupnya merupakan kualitas yang terbaik. Begitu pula untuk calon istri. Alec mendapati dunianya jungkir balik ketika mendapati dirinya jatuh cinta pad

Mira dan Alec melakukan permainan tarik ulur yang berbahaya,dibutuhkan kesabaran; konsentrasi; kegigihan; sedikit kekonyolan dan kekuatiran agar semua terlaksana dengan lancar. Alec dalam hal ini benar2 pribadi yang arogan tetapi munafik. Menyadari ia sangat menginginkan Mira tetapi tidak mau menjadikan Mira sebagai istrinya karena kedudukan Mira yang lebih rendah dibandingkan dirinya yaitu seorang Duke.

Tetapi ketika Alec melamar Mira sungguh mengejutkan kalo Mira mengindahkan lamaran karena ala

"Muito bom, acho que foi um dos primeiros livros da Lisa Kleypas e o segundo de um dueto. Quem aprecia a autora não deixará de gostar dessa leitura. Lorde Alec é um herói magnífico, a heroína é encantadora, um tanto teimosa...A primeira parte é uma explosão de sensualidade, depois o livro abranda, fica um tanto monótono, na reta final ganha aquele esperado toque romântico.

I enjoyed reading Mira and Alec's story, and as usual, I liked the male more than the female lead.

Mira tends to run away from her problems, whatever they may be, and that's something I find annoying in general. Add to that her habit of making assumptions and she loses some cookie points. Alec, on the other hand, also makes assumptions from the moment they meet, but learns from his mistake as they go. I enjoyed their banter and chemistry, but their story, like most, had its ups and downs and the
