I just re-read "Again the Magic" by Lisa Kleypas and was blown away. The intensity of the love between these two characters was greather than any other relationship I have ever read. Can anyone please recommend books that have this and are as good?

Also, I have not read the Wallflower series. Do McKenna and Aline appear in any of Klepyas' other books?

Recommendations can be contemporary or historical.

Also, I seem to remember reading in this forum someone mentioning a book that was just like "Again the Magic" plot-wise. But I can't remember the title. Anyone?

Aline's brother, Lord Westcliff, appears in Worth Any Price as a secondary character, and he gets his own story in It Happened One Autumn: Wallflower Series #2. You NEED to read the Wallflowers' series! :-) You should also read the Hathaway Family series, especially Seduce Me at Sunrise, but they are all keepers.

Note: There may be a mention of McKenna and Aline, but it's brief. They don't appear even as secondary characters.

kindred spirit ~ yeah, unfortunately Aline and McKenna never show up in person again in later Kleypas books. But they are mentioned a couple times quickly in her brother, Marcus & Lillian's book: It Happened One Autumn.

Although my kindle search results show "Aline" is mentioned 17 times throughout his book, most are not important. The only really major references to them is when Marcus mentions a gift (stereoscope) he receives from Aline from New York. And when Marcus announces to their mother news that Aline gave birth to a baby boy named John Mckenna the second.

I read this book once a year since I've found it years ago. I almost memorized the scene where he begs her to marry him, saying he loved her enough for the both of them and he'll take anything she can give him ::sigh::

I think the one mentioned often that has the similar plot is Meagan Mckinney's When Angels Fall

My other angsty go to books -
Flowers from the Storm
The Outsider

Response to all: Thank you! I appreciate all these recommendations and comments. I have read Perfect and Paradise by McNaught, Seduce Me at Sunrise, and Flowers from the Storm. I loved all of them. I am intrigued by all your other recommendations. Thanks.

I wish that Aline and Marcus's sister...Lily?? had her own book with Mckenna's American friend Gideon?? Sorry, I'm can't for the life of me remember their names, but I loved their secondary story and really wanted to know more.

ETA, lol, the sister for sure isn't Lily-that's Marcus's wife!! The sister's name starts with an L...I think...

PinkiexLi, Aline's sister's name was "Livia." And you're right, wasn't Livia and Gideon's story great? I thought this was one of the rare cases when the secondary couple was just as strong and interesting as the main couple. And with a couple like Aline and McKenna, that's saying something!

Gideon and Livia are my favorite LK couple - they really deserved their own book.

Again The Magic was a ***** read for me. The sweetness of the romance between Livia and Gideon balanced out the angst and darker romance of Aline and McKenna. You got two great couples for the price of one. I would have loved to see more of Aline and McKenna in the next books too.
