Bubbles99 | 1 comments I have been on goodreads for several years but didn’t know there was a LK group! :)

1. Name: Rathika

2. What are your favourite LK books?

It’s so hard to choose only a few since I LOVE most of LK’s historical romance novels. The following stories hold a special place in my heart & I’ve re-read them as well.

- Dreaming of You
- It Happened One Autumn
- Worth Any Price
- Suddenly You

3. Who’s your favourite LK hero & heroine? Couple?

Do I have to choose only one hero? ;) .......not sure if that’s possible :p LK writes such wonderful men. If I must choose then it’s probably tied between Derek Craven & Marcus (Lord Westcliff).

Fav heroine is Evie & fav couple is Sara Fielding & Derek Craven

4. What do you like about LK books?

Just everything. ;) Her writing style, her ability to effortlessly make one see & feel what is happening. I don’t ever have to try imagining anything because I am always magically transported there. Her characters (both hero & heroine) are just amazing. They are all different yet I always manage to connect with them in some way. And they aren’t perfect. They all have faults & issues to work through just like any of us. I love that her heroines are always strong even if they have gentle / quiet personalities. And the heroes are just amazing - passionate, intelligent & strong. And the stories are so romantic. Plus, she writes great love scenes. And with most of her books I’m still thinking about the characters days after I’ve finished the book. They become so real to me. LK is my #1 favourite historical romance author. :)

2. Love in the Afternoon, with Marrying Winterborne as a close second.
3. Hero: Cam (I think..this is not an easy question), Heroine: Evie (so many good ones though), Couple: Beatrix & Christopher
4. I don't recall the first one I read of LKs, but it didn't make me a believer then. I would come back to LK when I needed a good, reliable read. I read the Wallflower series and liked it quite a lot, but still not in auto-buy for me. Then I read the Hathaway series, and it floored me. Loved those ones so much, and it made me appreciate her genius in earlier reads. I have not read her contemporaries, because I rarely read in that genre, but do keep them in the back burner for when I need a good read.

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments Welcome, Dakota! Lisa Kleypas is an auto-buy historical romance author! Love her books!


message 1640: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 4720 comments Welcome to WLLK, Dakota. Yeah, it is hard to pick just one couple as a fav.

Dakota (queendakota) | 12 comments 1. Dakota
2. My favorite Lisa Kleypas books are Dreaming of You, Secrets of a Summer Night, Devil in Winter, Again the Magic, Seduce Me at Sunrise, and Suddenly You. I absolutely love almost all the books by Lisa Kleypas.
3. My favorite Lisa Kleypas couple is Kev and Winnifred, well maybe Derek and Sara, or perhaps Annabell and Simon.
4. I love Lisa Kleypas characters. They all have different personalities and different challenges, but underneath that they are all basically nice people. The romance in her books is so romantic:) I love that the characters in her books fall so completely in love with each other that they would do anything for them.

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments Hi, Evelyn! Lisa Kleypas is one of my favorite historical romance authors, and I'm thrilled that she has started writing more historical romance. Welcome to the group, we're glad to have you with us!


message 1633: by Evelyn (new)

Evelyn (Evelyn29) | 12 comments 1. Hi my name is Evelyn!

2. My favorite Lisa Kleypas books so far..... are
- Secrets of a Summer night (Wallflower series)
- Only with your love (Vallerands #2)

I also like "Devil in Winter" and "Tempt me at Twilight"

3. My absolute favorite Lisa Kleypas couple would have to be
Simon and Annabelle Hunt ! I adore this couple. They are from the first book of the Wallflower series.

4. There are many things I like about this Author. She is amazing! I like that at the end of the story you get the feeling that her couple is truly in love and there is a satisfactory ending.

I absolutely love self-made heroes!! and so many of Lisa's heroes are self made!

Ola | 1 comments i know i came here too late with this thread completely inactive but i feel like responding anyway. so hello to whoever's listening.

1. Name: ola.

2. What are your favorite Lisa Kleypas books: if i had to answer that question at gunpoint, you still couldn't make me choose. i love all my children equally.

3. Who's your favorite Lisa Kleypas hero and heroine? Couple: right now, simon and annabelle immediately come to mind. i do love sebastian/evie, derek/sara, joe/avery, zoe/alex, lara/hunter... but something about simon and annabelle has always stood out to me the most. they're somewhat underrated too, aren't they? :( i love all of lisa's couples though and find something special and unique in each relationship. which is the beauty of lisa kleypas' books. and admittedly, i still have some lisa kleypas books i haven't read yet, so give me time.

4. What do you like about Lisa Kleypas books: lisa kleypas has a certain power over me. no one comes close to her level, they just don't. i read her books just when i began my reading obsession around the age of 15, so she has a permanent place in my childhood memories and has shaped much of my own ideas on romance. her writing style is so poignant and elegant and makes me want to get inside her damn brain so i can look further into her world. i respect many of the personal ideals and values she expresses in her books and makes me believe she's a beautiful person inside and out. ugh i just love her.

Christiana | 1 comments Hi,
I am Christiana and I love historical romances. Lisa Kleypas is somewhat new to me as I started with Cold Hearted Rake and have only read 2 other of her works to date (Dreaming of you & Seduce Me at Sunrise)... I had heard of her writing but was intimidated by the ginormous backlist and how many books were in each series, but I'm challenging myself to read/listen as many of her books in the new year.
I loved Kev Merripen in SMaS and was astonished at the number of beefcake images that appeared when I googled his name!

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 3735 comments Welcome new members! We're still here. The mods have been busy with life challenges, so that's why the group hasn't seemed as active. If you're interested in coordinating a monthly challenge, it's not strictly relegated to moderators. Let me know if you want to give it a try for a month or two.

Hi Sharlene!

I love The Wallflower series! Have you read her Hathaways? I like the Travis series, Blue-Eyed Devil being my favorite. OMG Dreaming of You and Derek Craven. I remember crying buckets of tears while reading that book.

I haven't read Stranger in My Arms but I'll be adding it to my TBR list.

Pamela, I'm also looking forward to Cold-Hearted Rake coming out in October. It seems an age since her last historical.

Regrettably, it looks like it, Sharlene.

Sharlene (SWegner) | 322 comments Hi Honeyee! Not sure how active this group is anymore. I kind of just joined a few months ago to do the monthly challenge & get through some of the older books on my shelf. I finally read The Wallflowers & loved that entire series! I had read the Travis series before any of her historical romances & loved that series, too! And Derek Craven! The ultimate tortured hero! Have you read Stranger In My Arms? That was really unique & also excellent! Carol, I guess the monthly challenge has gone by the wayside?


Carol *Young at Heart Oldie* | 2118 comments Welcome to the group, Honeyee.

2. Again the Magic! The first one I read. :)
3. Favorite hero? McKenna, Simon Hunt, Sebastian
Favorite heroine? Lottie, Evie
Favorite couple? Aline and McKenna, Simon and Annabelle
4. Book-hopping characters and the Wallflowers series. I love getting to know the characters and become familiar with the settings. It starts to feel familiar, like its own world I can get lost in.
