Truly different Victorian romance

on 4/27/2010

Those who have read Kleypas' Wallflower and Hathaway series may think you know how this book will go. Although set in the same time frame, as her other books, it is vastly more "modern" in plot. Amanda Briars, 30 and firmly a spinster, has decided to hire a man for her 30th Birthday as a gift to herself. The man who arrives, Jack Devlin, is not who he seems. And although the hired man does not fulfill his hired obligation (nor could he as he was not in fact hired to deflower) they cross paths again and again. She is a writer of some notable fame and he a very accomplished and successful publisher (and acknowledged bastard son of an Earl). Their longing, their interactions, their restraint, and their passion is better written than most of Kleypas' novels. She is no shrinking virgin and he no overly experienced rake. They are both individuals with notable insecurities and emotional baggage. Very good story. Read More

Author Info
Lisa Kleypas
Lisa Kleypas would not look out of place on the cover of one her own books; the popular romance writer is also a former beauty queen. Kleypas was born in Temple, Texas, to Lloyd Kleypas, a successful real-estate developer, and his wife, Linda. The family later moved to Massachusetts. One of two children, Kleypas began reading romance novels as a teen and became determined to write her own. As a high-school senior she entered the America's Junior Miss Pageant, finishing fourth at the national level. With the $10,000 college scholarship she won, Kleypas attended Wellesley, where she studied political science. In 1985 she won the chance to represent Massachusetts in the Miss America Pageant but failed to make the top 10. (She has told interviewers that her participation earned her disdain from her feminist classmates at Wellesley.) Undaunted, she focused on her other ambition, and within a few months of graduating with her bachelor's degree in 1987, she had published her first novel, the Regency romance WHERE PASSIONS LEAD. She has since written numerous other romances, both historical and contemporary, and is a frequent honoree at the Romance Writers of America's RITA Awards.
From the Publisher
Editors Note She was unmarried, untouched and almost thirty, but novelist Amanda Briars wasn't about to greet her next birthday without making love to a man. When he appeared at her door, she believed he was her gift to herself, hired for one night of passion. Unforgettably handsome, irresistibly virile, he tempted her in ways she never thought possible...but something stopped him from completely fulfilling her dream.Jack Delvin's determination to possess Amanda became greater when she discovered his true identity. But gently-bred Amanda craved respectability more than she admitted, while Jack, the cast-off son of a nobleman and London's most notorious businessman, refused to live by society's rules. Yet when fate conspired for them to marry, their worlds collided with a passionate force neither had expected...but both soon craved.
