I have never written a reveiw, but I just loved this particular book and wanted to share my thoughts with others. Besides Devil In Winter, I don't think I have enjoyed a romantic novel as much as this one. True, some of the lines in the book were a little cheesy, but the narrative was wonderfully descriptive, and the story, sweet and loving. For once a hero is not brooding or denying his feelings, but embraces his nature and the heroines. Thumbs up all round.

So here it is! The long awaited romance of "Marks" and Leo! I know I'm not alone when I say that by the end of the second Hathaway book, SEDUCE ME AT SUNRISE, I was sensing that they would be matched up in the future and was already anxiously anticipating it.

Many readers have been counting down the days till this book came out, and that same pressure and excitement also made me nervous - would it be able to live up to our expectations? I'm very conflicted on what my answer to that question is and cannot give a straight yes or no (hence the middling rating of 3.5 stars). One thing I will say is that I don't think this book should be read on its own, for two reasons: 1) reading Hathaway Books 2 and 3 will allow you to enjoy the Marks and Leo relationship *that* much more, and 2) see my CONS section.

SUMMARY:
Catherine Marks (23) has been the governess and now-companion for the two youngest Hathaway girls for three years and during that time, the antagonistic relationship between Cat and her employer, Leo Hathaway, Viscount Ramsay, has only grown stronger. Leo (30) has changed from the drunken wastrel that he became following the death of his fiancee, however he is still irreverent and enjoys nothing more than a good argument with the pinch-faced eyeglass-wearing "Marks" (as he so "affectionately" calls her). They are like night and day: the relaxed, charming, devil-may-care facade aristocrat and the closemouthed, rigid (though NOT unkind!), somewhat stern governess.

The normal routine of their relationship - one of constant fighting and teasing - changes drastically one afternoon when Leo finally gives in to the urge and kisses Cat ... and she kisses him back!

Thank you Lisa Kleypas for another excellent book.

You know the plot: she's a spinster governess with a bad attitude and a mysterious past who longs for TLC. He's an accidental aristocrat who hides his massive capacity for love behind self-depreciating wit and naughty behavior. In short they are both hard candies with soft gooey centers.

The story takes place over several months while the actual romance has been building for a year as seen in the two previous novels. That said, the plot arc does get stretched (as others have noted). There's no question H & H will have their HEA. That predictability is one of the reasons I enjoy romance so much. But it's always interesting to see what plot devices the author will use to complete the book. Although we learned about Cat's mysterious past pretty early on, the actual resolution of her past and resolution of the story was unexpected. Each character had to face his/her daemons to get to the HEA.

SPOILER: Interestingly, they each had to deal with the issue of prostitution. Hers was the literal meaning of prostitution via her history of family prostitutes and his via the aristocratic marriage to secure either money or land. Both of them resisted and showed that neither of them was "for sale" in spite of the outward persona they represented.

Some other reviews have commented on the fact that Lisa Kleypas uses kidnapping a lot as a plot device. This is totally true. But what they aren't pointing out is that Lisa manages to create new characters and a new and unique love story in each and every book. Also unique loves scenes. Amazing. I think this is a huge accomplishment given that she's had to have written more than 20 books.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I liked Cam and Amelias story, i LOVED Kev and Win's story, Harry and Poppy were ok, i LOVE Leo and Marks! The banter between the two was so refreshing and it wasn't at all overdone. The sweetness of Leo and the wickedness of him blended so well. He is a very close second to Kev for me. I was pleasantly surprised that they were able to overcome their issues with each other early in the book. So that we could enjoy amusing banter but not hurtful or malicious. Loved this installment in the series. Lisa Kleypas never disappoints!

I loved Leo and Cat..........it was a beautiful story and I was afraid that it would be heavy on the I hate yous right up until the end given their history. However, it was not once they realized they liked each other the hostility went away and left a beautiful story.

I very much enjoyed this book. Leo and Marks are two unique, rounded characters who could step off the page. The only fault I find with the book is that I would like to see more of Amelia, Cam, Merripen and Win. They seemed a little backdroppish, which I know is inevitable, since this was Leo's and Mark's story, but still ... I'd take incidental conversation here and now, or a moment of them with their children.
