He was everything she'd sworn to avoid.
Poppy Hathaway loves her unconventional family, though she longs for normalcy. Then fate leads to a meeting with Harry Rutledge, an enigmatic hotel owner and inventor with wealth, power, and a dangerous hidden life. When their flirtation compromises her own reputation, Poppy shocks everyone by accepting his proposal - only to find that her new husband offers his passion, but not his trust.
And she was everything he needed...
Harry was willing to do anything to win Poppy - except to open his heart. All his life, he has held the world at arms's length...but the sharp, beguiling Poppy demands to be his wife in every way that matters. Still, as desire grows between them, an enemy lurks in the shadows. Now if Harry wants to keep Poppy by his side, he must forge a true union of body and soul, once and for all...
The third installment of the Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas was without a doubt the best so far in my opinion. I loved it!
I loved getting to know Poppy better. In a family full of eccentric individuals Poppy is the only normal one. Although she loves the craziness of her family she craves normalcy. She falls in love with a proper gentleman and he with her, but when he does not get the approval of his father he breaks her heart. But waiting in the wings there's the mysterious Harry Rutledge, a self proclaimed villain, our modern day bad boy. Their chemistry was amazing, there were several times that I needed to take a break and fan myself, wow.
I inhaled this book in one day! It was a perfect Sunday read.
You can find my thoughts on Mine Till Midnight, here. And Seduce Me At Sunrise, here.
