From the Back Cover
New York Times bestselling author LISA KLEYPAS delivers a scintillating tale of an unconventional beauty who finds passion with the spy who can’t resist her
A woman who defies her time
Dr. Garrett Gibson, the only female physician in England, is as daring and independent as any man—why not take her pleasures like one? Yet she has never been tempted to embark on an affair, until now. Ethan Ransom, a former detective for Scotland Yard, is as gallant as he is secretive, a rumored assassin whose true loyalties are a mystery. For one exhilarating night, they give in to their potent attraction before becoming strangers again.
A man who breaks every rule
As a Ravenel by-blow spurned by his father, Ethan has little interest in polite society, yet he is captivated by the bold and beautiful Garrett. Despite their vow to resist each other after that sublime night, she is soon drawn into his most dangerous assignment yet. When the mission goes wrong, it will take all of Garrett’s skill and courage to save him. As they face the menace of a treacherous government plot, Ethan is willing to take any risk for the love of the most extraordinary woman he’s ever known.

Highly recommend. So wonderful when a series stays compelling book after book.
Both hero and heroine are captivating. Secondary characters are vastly appealing, even if you haven't read other books.
Plenty of intrigue, romance, and tension. The sizzling scenes never seem like gratuitous additions. There is a feeling of escalating purpose to each that culminates in a lovely and enthralling romantic tale.
I love the (h) "Garrett" . She is a medical doctor-the only female in Britain who has fought her way to succeed. She is a fire ball, a fighter, brilliant, funny at times, naive, strong, confident, capable of protecting herself and is a just perfect! I truly loved her style and her ways!
The (H) "Ethan", oh my....I fell in LOVE with him! He is definitely an Alpha male, who has been in love with Garrett for years now. He is a undercover home office defective/assassin, dangerous, lonely, handsome, strong and Irish. And when he speaks with his Irish brogue....get your fan out!
When these two get together it's passion, love, adventure and romance!! There is a scene when Ethan is teaching Garrett how to fight. He's so gentle with her, he holds her hands, rubs his fingers under her wrist, it's just scenes like this that make this book soooooooo good!!
She's never been kissed and Ethan is so romantic, slow and patient, he gives her little love bites....oh my, I can't tell you how many times Ethan almost had me swoon. But it's not just the love story that makes this book good, it's the action, adventure and everything else that makes me love Lisa Kleypas books so much!!
Lisa did her research on this book! I'm in the medical field and hearing some of Dr. Garrett's terminology had me hooked to the storyline. It was like a movie, I just devoured this book in one day!!
Thanks Lisa Kleypas for this amazing book that I will read again!
Heat Level: Scorched my kindle, my bed and my drawers!!!
Hmmmm...where should I begin? Nothing will ever compare to the quick wit and great characters of the Hathaway series for me. I had high hopes for this book and a lot of it I enjoyed. However, I never really got the relationship between Garret and Ransom. Garret was so uninteresting to me and the love scenes could have been pasted and copied from any of her other books. I cannot read "crisp curls" again ...ever. I ever felt the connection between the h and H.
I was actually hoping for Ransom to die...I thought it would have been a great book if she had discovered she was an unmarried pregnant female doctor and ended up with the other Ravenal brother.
I do enjoy roaming through the victorian era landscape with Kleypas and love her attention to detail...I would so love her to break out of the more formulaic mold of her writing and take a few risks. She has the talent for it for sure.
Lisa Kleypas is one of my favourite historical romance authors. Her stories delight my senses and gives me the step back in time that I crave. It’s obvious that she does her research and I’m fascinated with her mix of facts with fiction. I will admit, there are times I think the heroine is a little too ahead of her times, but I guess, we’ll never know if that is what women thought and felt back in the day.
I loved seeing the strength in both Garrett and Ethan. Garrett uses her mind and confidence in her abilities to show her strength. Ethan uses his physical strength and ability to blend in, to get the bad guys. Both Garrett and Ethan are admirable in their protection and healing of people. Station in life plays no part, they want everyone to be safe and healthy.
One of the highlights of Hello Stranger would have to be West Ravenel. His humour and kindness make him lovable and quirky. I hope we get more of him in the future, I’m even guessing that he might be up next.
