Let’s make one thing clear; this book is an HR duck. It looks like one, it talks like one, and it walks like one. Is it formulaic? Probably. Should I have enjoyed it as much as I did? Probably not. Am I giving it five stars anyway? Absolutely. Why?

Because fuck you, that’s why.

I should start posting disclaimers at the top of my reviews for HRs stating that my opinion probably shouldn’t be trusted.

For those of you who know me, you know how many literary pet peeves I have. For those of you who d

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐! Tempt Me at Twilight, (stand-alone). The wicked, ruthless & unforgettable Harry Rutledge sets his sights on Poppy Hathaway!

“In the fairy tale you mentioned last night, I would probably be the villain. But it’s possible the villain would treat you far better than the prince would have.”

Books in Hathaways series are stand-alone, but most enjoyed if read in order:
Book 1: Mine Till Midnight
Book 2: Seduce Me at Sunrise
Book 3: Tempt Me at Twilight
Book 4: Married By Morning
Book 5: Love

What can I say? I just love Lisa Kleypas's writing and, as far as I know, she can do no wrong. Okay, I haven't read all her backlist yet, but almost everything I've read so far was excellent. The only exception was Mine Till Midnight, but even so it was good enough and definitely worth reading.

Poppy Hathaway is in London for her third season and, as it has become usual, she's staying with her family at the Rutledge Hotel. As the story opens, she's chasing her sister Beatrix's ferret, trying to r

Ahhh....I don't even feel like writing a review for this one except to say "Move over Cam, and make room for Harry!"

I found out something about myself--I love a romance where the hero really needs for someone to love him, whether he realizes it or not. And handsome hotelier Harry Rutledge (early 30s), who both wanted and feared affection (due to a heartbreaking childhood)--he captured my heart. Yes, he started out as a manipulative, selfish devil, (the way he got Poppy (23) to marry him), but h

What can I say about this book? After reading the last pages of this novel, at approximately 1 am, I set it down, knowing I couldn't possibly be ready to write a coherent review. Reviews are like soups or dishes with tomatoes and hearty seasonings. They should sit and rest, letting the spices and the tomato paste mingle together, so that the flavor can be maximized. Accordingly, I let myself ruminate in a bovine fashion about what I would write in my review of the latest historical by one of my ...more

Relectura de uno de mi favoritos de Lisa Kleypas, en que encontramos al que es probablemente el más villano de sus personajes masculinos. Me gustó tanto como la primera vez.
****
Insisto! Lisa Kleypas nunca defrauda. La verdad, no tenía mucha expectativa con esta novela ya que Poppy es la integrante más “normal” de la familia Hathaway, sin embargo, me encuentro con una historia terriblemente original para el género, en que tal como se lee en sus páginas “el villano se queda con la princesa”.

Me enc

5++ stars – Historical Romance

“Her chances of a decent marriage were about to be dashed-and all because of a ferret.” And thus begins the wonderfully romantic third installment in the saga of the eccentric Hathaway family, Tempt Me At Twilight.

Poppy Hathaway loves her quirky family, but she yearns for a conventional, quiet, normal, stable, peaceful, predictable, albeit boring, life. She believes wholeheartedly that she’s found her true soul’s desire in her beloved Michael Bayning, who’s courted

(4.5 Stars - Edit: Revised on further consideration to 5 Stars)

I really enjoyed Harry and Poppy’s story. But I did feel there was a little something missing, hence the 4.5 Stars. (Edit: But now in looking back, I can't bear not to give 5 Stars to each and every Hathaway book, so while I acknowledge there was a little something "missing", I loved it and will definitely read it again!)

I especially loved how the description of Harry Rutledge conjured images of Richard Armitage. *sighs* He's so vill

Okay, there is something above adoration???
Because i can assure you that i'm crazy about the Hathaways and their mates.

Every book is a new apocalypse and i'm never satisfied...
I want more and more and more...


Is it possible every story to be loved more than the previous??? For me, it is!!!
The first book worked as an introduction for me and then i fell in love with Ken and Win and i thought that this couple was my favorite...
But now after this book i think my favorite couple is Poppy and Harr

Harry Rutledge was both a neglected child and an abused child. The only son of an aging hotelier, Harry wasn’t raised in a home where a youngster could run and play, laugh out loud and just be a kid. Even at 5 years old he knew the rules: The Guests come first. Stay out of sight. Don’t make any noise. Don’t do this, don’t do that, don’t…don’t… don’t. Is it any wonder that as an adult, Harry is so rigid, so disciplined and so aloof? One of the richest men in London and one of the most mysterious,
