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

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'

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

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.

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

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

lebih mending dibanding buku yg pertama, tapi tetep gak suka" amat, klo bisa sih pengennya cuma ngasih 2,5 bintang, biz lagi" tokoh cwnya menyebalkan. Plin Plan banget, n doyan bgt lari dari masalah, d kya koruptor indonesia aja, demennya cuma kabur. Dari buku pertama, kabuuuuur terus kerjaannya. Bener" pengecut bgt. Klo ga salah n bukan lo yg berbuat knp takut sih, bikin org sekitarnya jd bgg nyari diakan jadinya. Tokoh yg aneh. N kenapa tiap tokoh cw yg bgini slalu dpt tokoh cowo yg sabar bgt. ...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

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.

Tertarik dengan karakter Alec Falkner yang tidak mudah ditebak. Membuat selalu menunggu apa yang akan ia katakan atau lakukan selanjutnya. Membuat halaman berikut dan berikutnya menjadi debaran yang sangat mengasyikan. Alec adalah sosok yang Sangat sarkastik dan keras tapi sangat lembut dibeberapa keadaan. Diimbangi dengan karakter Mira, yang entah mengapa melihat sosok mereka berdua sangat mirip namun berbeda. Meskipun sudah dapat menebak alur cerita, kejadian seperti apa yang akan terjadi dan ...more

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

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

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

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

Omg,I never dislike a heroine just like I dislike mira.
Tarik ulur cerita ŋ karakter mira hampir bikin aku pengen stop baca.
I just don't get it!!
Dia ninggalin org yg dia cintai hanya krn abangnya uda menyakiti *langsung/tdk langsung* org yg dicintai.
Well,di WPL,kekna msh bs aku trima ketika dia putuskan untuk ninggalin rose,krn abangnya yg mengkhianatinya.
Krn itu pertama kalinya dia mrasa 'yeah,this is where are I belong' after masa lalu yg kelam.

The hero is not one of Lisa Kleypas's best, but is clearly built with the same mold. His rake reformation is rather entertaining to read and I liked him, even in his bad moments, or maybe also because those exist.

The heroine, Mira/Mireille, on the other hand is very difficult to apprehend and to like. I kept wondering what horrible secrets she kept hiding to realize later on that it had already been more than half uncovered without any repercussions; I really hate it when someone keeps making mo

Mysterious
There's a glimpse of the talent that Lisa Kleypas really comes into later in her career. But only half of the equation is here. I liked Mireille, found her sympathetic and coherent as a character; problem is, she's badly matched with a nobleman (and a duke, no less). I would have loved to see Mireille fall in love with an upstart from the merchant class, or someone like half-gypsy Cam Rohan (hero from Kleypas' "Mine Till Midnight"), or even a country squire with a spot of rebellion in his past. ...more
