Wow. This was great! When I read the description on the back, I thought I knew what it was about. I was wrong. It was better. You go through a range of emotions reading this book and I couldn't put it down. Ignore what your gut tells you when you read the title. This is definitely one of those "you can't judge a book from its cover" types.

I did not want to like this book. I bought it at a buck-a-bag booksale and left it sitting on my shelf for months. I picked it up out of boredom, and then (sigh),I couldn't put it down. I thought about it while I was at work, I read a page or two at stoplights, and I found myself turning off the American Idol finale just so I could finish the book. This story is different from what I have been reading lately--sweet and memorable. It reminded me of the best of Dorothy Garlock, with that little underlying edge that only Kleypas could write. I found myself caring about Liberty, Hardy, Gage, Churchill, and Carrington more than I have cared about other characters since I read my first Kathleen Woodiwiss book. 4 Stars!!

OH MY OH MY... I originally got this book from the library, HOWEVER, after reading chapter 7, I knew it was going to be a favorite and purchased it. Lisa Kleypas is such a gifted writer. This is my first book of hers, and I can't wait to read more books by her, historical or contemporary.

I wasn't sure I would enjoy reading a book in first person, but I did. I felt everything Liberty felt, anger, frustration, butterflies, pain, tiredness and tears. This story was especially enjoyable, as I could appreciate all that she went through.

If you have not read this story, it's in paperback now, GO GET IT.

This is Kleypas' first outing in the contemporary market. She does not disappoint.

I won't say what the book is about, but it's not what you think. Give yourself plenty of time to read it because you are not going to put it down. It's a really great book and I truely hope that one character gets his own story.

This was an awesome book. I couldn't believe how quickly I read this! I don't read a lot of romance because you typically get some mushy, sex-ridden book with no plot. This book had just the right amount of romance with lots of content and character building. Loved the closure at the end and of course the very happy ending. Great read and looking forward to Blue-Eyed Devil!

If you enjoyed this book you might also like Lucky's Lady by Tami Hoag. I really enjoyed it.

First off, this was a really good book. No question. But it was a lot more than a romance, somebody told me it was more chick-lit, but I don't agree with that either. There was just a lot going on in this book. Liberty is an incredibly strong person and I admire her tremendously. I really did not undertsand the relationship with her sister and mother, and probably never will. But, that's okay. Gage was incredible too. I wish there was more detail in how their relationship began. That's always the sweetest part of any love story. Then there's Hardy, a lot of people said they didn't get him in the end. I did. It wasn't really hard to understand for me. I loved him in Blue Eyed Devil, and nothing's changed for me, I still liked that book better.

I read Blue-Eyed Devil fisrt and I adored it, it was one of the best books I've ever read. This was a great book but I can't give it as high of a review just because I like the next one better. Lisa writes heart wrenching and warming stories, I love the drama, the heat and the realism of her contemporary series. I highly recommend this series, even if you don't read them in order!
