Well? How did you like Blue-Eyed Devil? It was a hard read in the beginning, but the Haven's healing phase with Hardy was so beautiful. Would love to know what you thought.

Burbanista | 20 comments Hi!
I am SO ECSTATIC to have found this group. Gotta preface this by saying that I discovered Lisa Kleypas via her contemporary novels . I also recently saw that she got her start with historical romances, but I LOVE her Travis series. I was looking for kindred spirits because Gage & Liberty from "Sugar Daddy " are my absolute favorite couple. I don't understand why they haven't gotten more press.

So my questionnaire answers:

Name: Trudy
Favorite LK Books: Sugar Daddy!! , Blue-Eyed Devil!!
Favorite LK Couple/ Characters: Liberty Jones, Gage Travis, Hardy Cates, Haven Travis,
What do I like about LK books: The wit in the dialogue between her characters; the inherent sweetness of her story lines, the tight writing (nothing seems redundant or overwrought) and oh yeah...the sex is hot, but not gross!!!

I would love to hear from other folks who love Liberty & Gage. I had read the book twice, then ordered the Audible copy. I had really liked Gage & Liberty before, but once I heard Jeannie Stith narrate the Audible version, I was in love.

Sugar Daddy is one of my all-time faves. I read a lot and still they outshine everybody else.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 3735 comments Hugs back at you, Autumn. I am praying for you!

Autumn   (sweetdenial) | 1625 comments Aww, Thank you girls for all that love! Words can`t describe how much I missed the camaraderie of this place.

It`s been a very challenging past year. It all started with a banged-up knee, then anemia.Not too long after that, we got hit with Sandy. And now It seems my blood pressure is always dropping, so I`m had extensive cardiovascular tests to find the culprit of my never ending maladies. *sigh*

Anyway, we can always hide in a good story or have a ball with your GR friends when RL gets too much to handle; no social skills required. Whats not love about it ;)? lol

(((((((huggs))))))))))))

Hope we can see more of each other here.

Oh, can't I pick them all!?!?! I've truly enjoyed all of them so far :). My latest obsession being Married By Morning & Sugar Daddy!

3. Who's your favorite Lisa Kleypas hero and heroine? Couple?
I'm going to go with Leo and Cat from Married By Morning... I just loved their story :) ((But then again I love all the couples in The Hathaways Series))

4. What do you like about Lisa Kleypas books?
What's not to love? She writes amazing historical romance & contemporary in my opinion. Her writing is easy to read and keeps me entertained for hours =)

Edan Marie Esquibel (mariedan11) | 4 comments When i first found this group (w/c was quite recently) o was like: OMG!!!! i have sisters out there, drooling over LK's men, like me!!
hahaha...
hi all! I'm Edan Marie, just Marie will do..
I have read Devil in Winter countless times, and still, I fall in love with Sebastian over and over again :D I really like Smooth Talking Stranger, Sugar Daddy, A wallflower Christmas, Forever my Love, Somewhere I'll Find you, waaaa... can't i just say them all? :D
St. Vincent and Evie are like.. *hands down. *no words required. :D i sometimes wish i could find my inner evie and be swept away by my sebastian :P i also like cocky Alec Faulkner :D All the Travis brothers, i want them all. :D
LK's novels make me believe in love again (i know, i know, too much drama). Hey, for someone who has a past/ doesnt have any, it really boosts up morale... or something. its like, even if i'm not in love today, as in, in reality, at least i have my fictional love stories and i dont think anyone would take that away.:D
I love it how LK portrays the heroes, all mighty and all, struggling for their feelings. gives me hope that men might actually be like that :D and they're sooooo adorable when they can't contain their love. :DDD
i'm fangirling here!!!!
who's with me? :D
I also love her series since she lets us take a glimpse of the lives of previous characters. i know you understand me, dear sisters. i mean, who wasn't excited when Evie was mentioned during the Hathaways? :DD

i look forward to interacting with you, dear co-fans :D

a toast to our romantic selves :))

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 3735 comments Welcome, Cerian. I am glad you found us. In case you have noticed it yet, I am definitely a St. Vincent and Evie fan! Love the ruthless heroes as well!

Cerian (rookieromance) | 1 comments Hi! I'm Cerian, and I can't believe it's taken me so long to find this group!
Some of my favourites are Devil In Winter, Dreaming of You and Because You're Mine. Although Devil In Winter is my absolute favourite!
So obviously, my favourite couple is Sebastien and Evie. He's utterly divine, and she has a wonderful quiet strength to her that makes them perfect together :)
I've been reading Lisa Kleypas books for years, and I can re-read most of them, over and over. I think I love them so much primarily because of the heroes. Especially the ones who are more ruthless, and need that special woman to love. Actually, all 3 of the books I've said are my favourites have very ruthless heroes lol

Anywhos, happy to be here!

Grace Cieleen (Graceyco) | 10 comments 1. Grace Co (I'm from the PH yey!)
2. Love in the Afternoon, Tempt me at Twilight and Blue eyed devil
3. It's Beatrix and Christopher Phelan!
4. What I like about her books is the way Lisa builds up the characters to be extremely love-able that you can't resist knowing more about them and once you do, you know you're hooked and there's no turning back.

I love how LK builds up her romance, the introductions, the tension and that overflowing passion that only her can masterfully deliver. I often end up melting and exploding to sugary feelings whenever I dedicate myself to reading one of her books. I have never encountered an author so perfect in delivering romance stories with the right amount of wit, humor and a chunk of love.

Lisa Kleypas is my kind of PERFECT author. I adore her.

2. The Hathaways and The Friday Harbor Series.
3. Love Cam and Amelia- great chemistry.
4. I love that Lisa Kleypas' books are not your typical romance novels. They are humorous, witty, and not always predictable even though we know everything ends well.
