Seduce Me At Sunrise

Lisa Kleypas is a must read author. I love her books. I’ve read her contemporaries, which I’m not a huge fan of, but I love her historicals. Seduce Me At Sunrise is Lisa Kleypas’ latest historical novel.

Here’s the blurb:
Kev Merripen has longed for the beautiful, well-bred Winnifred Hathaway ever since her family rescued him from the brink of death when he was just a boy. But this handsome Gypsy is a man of mysterious origins—and he fears that the darkness of his past could crush delicate, luminous Win. So Kev refuses to submit to temptation…and before long Win is torn from him by a devastating twist of fate.

Then, Win returns to England…only to find that Kev has hardened into a man who will deny love at all costs. Meantime, an attractive, seductive suitor has set his sights on Win. It’s now or never for Kev to make his move. But first, he must confront a dangerous secret about his destiny—or risk losing the only woman he has lived for…

Kev Merripen and Win Hathaway are polar opposites. While Kev is strong, dark and very primal, Win is meek, soft and sickly. The one common that they both have is their love. A love that is forbidden by society. Kev is a Gypsy, and Win is the sister of a Viscount.

When Win comes back from France along with a surprise guest, her family think that it may just be the kick that Kev needs to make his intentions known. But Kev struggles with his feelings, he doesn’t think that he is a suitable choice, he feels that Win deserves a better man than he, she deserves a gentle man, not a hard one.

This is the second book of the Hathaway series, the first book Mine Till Midnight. I didn’t think it couldn’t have gotten better, but Seduce Me At Sunrise was such a wonderful book. It had it all, the tears (both happy and sad), it had laughter, it had surprises and it had the sizzle. It was hot! Loved it

Now I’ll wait “patiently” until A Wallflower Christmas comes out.

So you didn't much like her contemporaries? I haven't picked them because I'm not always of contemps...
