Forever My Love (Berkeley-Falkner #2)

"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 :(
I didn't write a review of this book when I finis ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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' ...more
“Fate is the malevolent little jester sitting up in the heavens and pondering over how ridiculous we humans are and he does his best to make fools out of all of us. And sooner or later he succeeds.”
Libro publicado originalmente en 1988.
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 ...more
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.
Alec, our hero had quite a bit of magnetism. He was a bit more inte ...more
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 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 ...more
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 ...more
Buku ke2 seri Berkeley-Falkener
Kalau seorang wanita dari kalangan rakyat biasa/bawah yg miskin menjadi simpanan seseorang disebut pelacur, apa sebutan bagi wanita keturunan bangsawan dan istri para bangsawan kaya dan berkedudukan, memiliki kekasih atau beberapa kekasih yg meniduri mereka diranjang suami mereka sendiri???
Jangan menilai pribadi seseorang hanya berdasarkan status, kedudukan dan harta, lihatlah berdasarkan ketulusan hati dan jiwanya. Dan jangan menghukum seseorang hanya kar ...more
Akhirnya kelar baca! :D
Buku ini kuharap mampu melebihi buku pertamanya yang telah kubaca pertama (lihat reviewnya di sini). Dan harapanku tidak mengecewakan. Kisah Mira dengan Alec jauh lebih oke dari pada kisah Rosalie d ...more

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...more

"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. Trecho: ------ —Te amo. —Mira arqueó el cuello cuando el placer la atravesó en cálidas oleadas. De pronto logró ...more
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 ...more
