CHARACTERS Marrying WinterborneOtted the we were introduced to Winterborne in Cold Hearted Rake I mean he literally stole the story and from that oint onward I was anting for the next scene with Helen and Rhys And trust me this book far exceeded my expectations Rhys is the epitome of my kind of HR hero actually whatever genre of romance I m reading His character exuded confidence strength dominance but also Rhys was a really sensitive guy although he might not have dealt with his emotions in the same manner as gentleman of the eer would Let s not forget the fact that he is absolutely smitten with Helen I like my heroes smitten or besotted or bothNow about Helen I was retty sure her character would be overwhelmed by Rhys character yes her she had strength but it was understated in the first book But in this book she really blossomed I have to say I was very happy to note that her character was driven and she could be independent too Hers and Rhys interaction constantly kept me on my toes and yes in a state of arousal because lets be honest Rhys is incapable of keeping his cool around Helen These two made fireworks together they were assionate and just lain frenzied around each other but they did have moments of uiet when they would just bask in their mutual love Closing his eyes he ressed his jaw gently against her small ear A half minute The Art of Mary Beth Edelson passed before he could find his voice You ve read the fairy tales You know what happens to little girls who visit wolves About the supporting charactersPandora and Cassandra brought some comedic relief to the story but I will admit that Pandora isrobably my favourite and I am literally foaming at the mouth for her
book and lets not forget about who the hero is Iand lets not forget about who the hero is I know their book is going to be epic A special mention is needed for Dr Gibson my God lease tell me she s going to have her own book because seriously there s so much otential thereOnce again I wonder why it is that I took so long to join in the Lisa Kleypas fandom because she is everything Edit My goodnessthe.

M RATING THIS BOOK AHEAD OFrating this book ahead of because I already fell in love with this almost couple in Cold Hearted Fak OH MY GOD this has nothing to do with this bookBUTDid anyone else start making humming noises when Evie and Sebastian from Devil in Winter made an appearance in the teaser for the next bookDevil in Spring is going to be about their son Gabriel and my favorite twin from this book Pandora I can feel the awesomeness of this story unfolding and I just Ok ok okSo how was Marrying WinterborneHmmm Well the first book in Kleypas new historical romance series has had some retty mixed reviews I mean I wasn t all that impressed with it but at the same time it didn t exactly suck And after finishing Cold Hearted Rake I really was looking forward to reading about Rhys HelenProbably because I love reading about mismatched couples Now I thought that this would be one of those stories where they get hitched in the beginning and then have to sort out their feelings after they re already married I had no real basis for this butAnyway that s not how it happensThe entire book is basically one long courtship and they are both crazy about each other the entire time Now events from their asts that neither had any control over conspire to create drama secrets and misunderstandings that could otentially keep them apartBut this is a romance so you know it ll all work itself out Overall I thought it was a None Like Him: 10 Ways God Is Different from Us (and Why That's a Good Thing) pretty good story and far enjoyable than the first book in the Ravenel series Something about Helen and Rhys struck of a chord with me and I ended up rooting for both of them to make it work Plus were both decenteople Rhys wasn
T SAINT BUT HE WASa saint but he was about Helen and would do anything to make her happy And Helen was just a generous kind woman who did whatever she could for others So Yeah Cute couple sighStill the best thing about the book was the bonus chapter for the next oneI mean if Gabriel is anything like his father sueaksI m Puta prepared to have myanties melted off. 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 Winterbor. .
