Rating: 5/5 stars

Lisa Kleypas is by far my favorite romance writer. She has a gift for storytelling, for sweeping her readers off their feet, and for making Regency England come alive so much so that you wish you could go back in time and experience it yourself. You want to fall in love while dancing a waltz with a man who’s wearing a cravat and pantaloons and brooding over the fact that he can’t rip off your corset then and there and “take” you. (Or maybe that last bit is just me.) With all the romance novels out there today, you would think the genre would have become stale and too predictable by now; not so with Ms. Kleypas. Her stories are fun, absorbing, and also character-driven. This last is the major reason why her books are so successful: her heroines are women you root for and admire, strong yet vulnerable, independent but passionate.
