please refrain from writing a book's synopsis or summary and giving away what happens in the book. it really kills the expectancy of reading something that you were looking forward to its like when you go to the movies, you're waiting to get your ticket and the person in front of you blurts out whats gonna happen.

So Beautiful, So Sweet......Such a Disappointment

Madeline Matthews, in an attempt to escape an arranged marriage to a wrinkled, old, and all around gross nobleman, runs away from school and into the heart of London, fully intending to ruin herself. She obtains a job at the Capital Theater and meets Logan Scott and he becomes the target of her misguided seduction. Logan suffered extreme physical abuse as a child and is now a hardened man and believes himself impervious to all emotion, especially that of love.....until Madeline. Madeline is shocked that not only is she physically attracted to Logan, but also that she believes herself to be fully in love with him. Logan fights his own attraction to Madeline tooth and nail. But eventually he succumbs to his emotions and accepts her love, and is willing to provide love for her. But Madeline's family tracks her to Logan Scott's home and her duplicity is revealed. Logan believes that Madeline has betrayed him and used love for her as a tool for her own advantage. He shuns her completely. The first two hundred pages of this book were SOOOOO GOOD! I was turning pages like a crazy person. Logan was dark and repressed, and so unnervingly sexy. Kleypas does a remarkable job of displaying his slow realization of his love for Madeline. This book COULD have been perfect. I was utterly enraged when Kleypas decided to bring an unwanted pregnancy into the picture. I can't stand it when authors do this. It FORCES the characters back together rather than actually allowing them to work it out for themselves. Not to mention that Kleypas turned Logan into a complete tool. He treats Madeline with such utter disrespect and coldness that I felt was undeserved. It is true that she betrayed him but that does not excuse Logan from becoming a misogynist. Not cool. Lisa Kleypas is a wonderful writer and I adored the first two hundred pages of this book. But I could not stomach Logan being so oppressive towards the end, or Madeline being so submissive.

    Captured the emotion!

    My boyfriend bought me this book and I never read a historical romance other than the Peer and innocent girls trying to catch a husband etc. But this book set on the theater back ground, eventhough i love phantom of the opera so much but i never really like this kinda book. I thought it's gonna be dull, but apparently it was very refreshing. And the way Lisa Kleypas put the emotions of the characters through words really touched me and it felt so real.

    Will Dazzle the Mind

    This book, though wonderfully written, was not Kleypas' best. She has amazing skill and the book shows that. Her rapid progression in this well written novel is not quite to my liking. I like her style and the events, for the most part, but I feel it was lacking in some areas I was not suspecting. I do feel that it is a magnificent piece of literature and do suggest that one would read it, despite it's minial flaws. Not her best, but definitely better than most.
