A ruthless tycoon

Savage ambition has brought common-born Rhys Winterborne vast wealth and success. In business and beyond, Rhys gets exactly what he wants. And from the moment he meets the shy, aristocratic Lady Helen Ravenel, he is determined to possess her. If he must take her virtue to ensure she marries him, so much the better…

A sheltered beauty

Helen has had little contact with the glittering, cynical world of London society. Yet Rhys’s determined seduction awakens an intense mutual passion. Helen’s gentle upbringing belies a stubborn conviction that only she can tame her unruly husband. As Rhys’s enemies conspire against them, Helen must trust him with her darkest secret. The risks are unthinkable… the reward, a lifetime of incomparable bliss. And it all begins with…

Marrying Mr. Winterborne

The first book in this was good, but this is why Lisa Kleypas should never stop writing historical romances. And the next book?! My favorite characters from my favorite book are coming back.

This felt a lot like an older Kleypas book. I reminded me a lot of Tempt me at Twilight and Secrets of a Summer Night. She really knows how to write a social differences story. And I'm a real sucker for those.

Helen and Rhys are both great characters and they are an enjoyable couple to read about. Rhys is a very well written alpha male. She explores whyhe is that way instead of it just being an alpha-hole. Helen is also fantastic. She is so gentle and kind, but isn't just a push over.

Seriously, if you haven't read a Lisa Kleypas book you need to.

Thanks for reading!
