I absolutely LOVED this book. I found out some of the characters were in the "Wallflower" series (the one with seasons in the title) that Kleypas put out, so I am glad I read this beforehand.

I will continue to read this author!!!

I like L. Kleypas's books. Her heroines hold their own against their handsome, wealthy sexy yet need-to-be-taken-down-a-few-notches heros. This time around,its the story of Lady Aline and John McKenna. They were childhood loves of two different social classes that meet as children, fall in love as teens and are forced apart due to fate. Like all true star-crossed lovers, they do meet each other again as adults and pick up where they left off. Of course, its not so cut and dry as that...there is lots of flirting, romance, and intrigue.

This has got to be one of the best books Ms. Kleypas has ever written. Could not put it down.

This is one of the best romances I've ever read! I was completely cought up in the plotline (which was good and had be until the very end) and the sexiness of this whole book - I highly recommend it, my first by this author.

I feel the magic, again, in reading another awesome Lisa Kleypas book (sorry i had to say it). Again the Magic is not only a great romance about McKenna and Aline but throws in another entire story about Livia and Gideon. Kind of a two-for-one book. As always she combines great historical romance with hot love scenes and a real love story and great dialogue.

I became a Kleypas fan during the Hathaways series and have been kind of reading her books in reverse order. I loved Marcus when I read about him in the Nick Gentry book and then in the Wallflowers series. I was so glad to see him again in this book and learn about his family and sisters. (I guess technically this would be the introduction of Marcus, but like I said, reading them in reverse.)

I'm never that wild about romances that begin when the characters are but teenagers and then reunite as adults. Personally I would never date today anyone I dated in high school, hard to imagine finding your one true love at that age. But Kleypas can do no wrong and this story was as good as any of her others. A keeper for me.

LK is one of my favorite authors. That said, the premise of young lovers torn apart and revenge after XX years isn't one of my favorite themes. I enjoyed this and the tension between them was good but I kept having to get 'over it'

I really really liked this book. Alot. The bond between the two was amazing. And this heroine actually had, what I thought, was a good reason for turning the hero away. A great love story. I've been reading from All About Romance's top 100 romances, and I am actually surprised this isn't on there, as there are several of her other books on the list. Well, I believe it's made my top 100 list. :)
