Editorial Reviews



“Has plenty to keep readers turning the pages: Wit, suspense, secrets to learn and, of course, lots of love and passion…”—The Monitor

“Each member of the family is a delight to meet, and the depths of emotions and love they have for each other is shown magnificently...a spectacular story that continues the saga of the Hathaway family.”—Romance Reviews

“Lushly sexy and thoroughly romantic…superbly crafted characters and an intriguing plot blend together brilliantly in this splendid romance.”—Booklist

From the Back Cover

From the New York Times bestselling author of Mine Till Midnight and Seduce Me at Sunrise comes a stunning novel about two opposites in every way—except when it comes to desire…


He was everything she’d sworn to avoid.

Poppy Hathaway loves her unconventional family, though she longs for normalcy. Then fate leads to a meeting with Harry Rutledge, an enigmatic hotel owner and inventor with wealth, power, and a dangerous hidden life. When their flirtation compromises her own reputation, Poppy shocks everyone by accepting his proposal—only to find that her new husband offers his passion, but not his trust.

And she was everything he needed…

Harry was willing to do anything to win Poppy—except to open his heart. All his life, he has held the world at arm’s length…but the sharp, beguiling Poppy demands to be his wife in every way that matters. Still, as desire grows between them, an enemy lurks in the shadows. Now if Harry wants to keep Poppy by his side, he must forge a true union of body and soul, once and for all...

“Splendid romance.”—Booklist

Customer Reviews

It just seemed to delay the end of the book.
Harry's everything Poppy doesn't want: ruthless, manipulative, and seemingly incapable of love.
M. Nix
The Hathaways series by Lisa Kleypas is one of the best romances I have ever read.

If you thought the Hathaway series got off to a slow start I can assure you it is full steam ahead now. As far as I'm concerned this is the best of the series by far. Tempt Me At Twilight is one of the most romantic romances I have read in a very long time. Poppy Hathaway is up to bat in this one and she already has her heart set on the Honorable Michael Bayning. They have courted all season long and Poppy is just waiting for him to pop the question so she can live happily ever after.

Enter wealthy hotel owner Harry Rutledge. He owns the hotel where her family spends the season in London. If you follow this series you will remember Beatrice of the many animal menagerie? Her ferret, Dodger, is loose in the hotel and Poppy must catch him before a love letter he has stolen causes a scandal. This clever opening to the story will have you laughing out loud as Harry and Poppy definitely "meet cute." Beatrice approves Harry immediately when she finds out he has been ferret approved. She is even more impressed when she finds out Dodger chewed a hole in his chair and Harry didn't even blink. The rest of the family is not so easily impressed.

In fact the entire family wants to murder him when they find out just how far he'll go in order to have Poppy for his wife. Believe me, he is a very bad boy. Oh, but to have a man love you like he loves Poppy? Yes, ladies, we would all give a favorite body part for a delicious man like Harry Rutledge. This is some of the best writing I have seen from Lisa Kleypas ever. It is truly a romance where we aren't just told that A loves B, we SEE it. In living color we see and hear the hero lose his heart to Poppy. I fell in love with Poppy too. She really shines in this tale and is perfect for Harry in every way.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Initially, I wasn't drawn to reading this novel. It's been a while since I read Seduce Me at Sunrise (which I definitely preferred over Amelia and Cam's book), and Poppy was the one character I couldn't really remember. However, my mind was quickly changed once I began reading.

Tempt Me at Twilight has your classic heroine: Poppy is your smarter-than-average female who has trouble fitting in with the British ton. Harry is the enigmatic and slightly villainous hero. The predictability ends there because this novel is full of surprises. Unlike Amelia and Win's marriages, Poppy and Harry's occurs quite early on and under very different and difficult circumstances. What I predicted to be a problem down the road for them was actually addressed on their wedding day. Also, Harry is quite evil (I say that with a laugh and a grain of salt). On a serious note, I believed him to be the anti-hero that Sebastian should have been in Devil in Winter (though I love that book as well). He manipulated people into getting his way, but what was refreshing was that Poppy is able to handle him on her own terms. There are also introductions to interesting side characters who I hope play a part in later books, including Harry's assistant.

For those of you, like me, who were disappointed that Leo's story wasn't next after Win's (they had plenty of chemistry in her story), you won't be sorry that LK skipped them for the time being. Our favorite sparring couple has plenty of fun scenes that further develop their tempestuous relationship. We also learn a lot more about Miss Marks' mysterious past and Tempt Me at Twilight even ends on a cliffhanger for the two.

Why did I give Tempt Me at Twilight 4 stars? I felt a small bit unsatisfied with the development of Poppy and Harry's relationship.

At last!! Another Kleypas novel - now we all just have to survive the wait for the story we've all been waiting for: Leo and "Marks" (or Catherine/Cat, which we learn in this novel is her first name). I completely agree with the reviewer Luckee that this book was definitely satisfying and enjoyable, but there was just a little something missing. Is it worth rushing out to your nearest bookstore and buying though? Yes. Will you be left feeling giddy after you read it? Yes. And are there the classic characters we all love, the chemistry Kleypas excels at writing, and the humorous and witty scenes we adore? Yes. So basically: yes, buy it, steal it, whatever, but read it!

MAIN CHARACTERS, Harry Rutledge and Poppy Hathaway:
Harry (early 30s) is a wonderful hero - the kind of bad-guy-whom-we-love-to-love hero that Kleypas created for Dreaming of You, The Devil in Winter, and Where Dreams Begin. Harry is ruthless, complex, very emotionally closed-off, and will stop at nothing to get what he wants - which usually comes very easily to him now. However he's also fair, humorous, extremely hardworking and intelligent, intense, passionate, loyal, and can be extremely tender and sensitive.

Here LK has created a "hero" à la Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent (from DEVIL IN WINTER), because as Harry himself says in the scene that was being used as the teaser-excerpt: in this story, it's the villain of the fairy-tale who gets the princess, not the prince.
