Kev Merripen has longed for the beautiful, well-bred Winnifred Hathaway ever since her family rescued him from the brink of death when he was just a boy. But this handsome Gypsy is a man of mysterious origins—and he fears that the darkness of his past could crush delicate, luminous Win. So Kev refuses to submit to temptation…and before long Win is torn from him by a devastating twist of fate.

Then, Win returns to England…only to find that Kev has hardened into a man who will deny love at all costs. Meantime, an attractive, seductive suitor has set his sights on Win. It's now or never for Kev to make his move. But first, he must confront a dangerous secret about his destiny—or risk losing the only woman he has lived for…in Seduce Me at Sunrise, the second book in the Hathaways series by beloved author Lisa Kleypas.

I thought Seduce Me at Sunrise was an awesome book. Ever since Lisa introduced us to Cam Rohan in The Devil in Winter, I was hoping for a book about him. And we got an excellent one where we met Amelia, Win, Merripen, Poppy, Leo, etc. After Mine Till Midnight, I was fascinated by the Hathaway family. During the reading of that book I could tell Win and Kev were destined for each other and I was anxiously awaiting the release of Seduce Me at Sunrise. I was not disappointed in the least. I highly recommend this book to historical romance fans and to Lisa Kleypas fans. Now I am awaiting a book about Leo and Miss Marks.
Go read this amazing book if you haven't already and if you have, read it again. I know I will! I re-read many of Lisa's books because they are absolutely a pleasure to read.

but certainly not the best romance I've ever read. It was entertaining and held my interest. However, I've read much better. Would recommend though for anyone who likes historical romance with brooding men that can't express their emotions. HA!

I enjoyed reading Mine Till Midnight and loved the chemistry between Cam and Amelia. I looked forward to SMaS and Merripen and Win's story. In SMaS I could feel the struggle Merripen experienced about his feeling for, and interactions with, Win.
My only issues with the story is I'm a stickler for details. In the beginning, the story starts off a couple of months after MTM ends; year 1848 (MTM takes place fall 1848). In SMaS there is a good part of Merripen's background revealed in several chapters which are dated "12 years earlier"; that would be 1836. However, in MTM, when Amelia is recollecting the past about Merripen; he had lived with the family for 15 years; which would be 1833. Also, Merripen's Romany tribe used him as a fighter in bets against others; because of his size and brute strength; according to SMaS. But in MTM, Amelia says Merripen was rescued by them as a "small and rather slight lad". I get hung up on little details like that.

I adored the first book in this series and was afraid that the second book would not live up to my expectations. I am happy to report that Seduce Me At Sunrise did not disappointed and I fell in love with the Hathaways all over again. My heart went out to Merripen in the first book. Haunted by a dark and violent past, he’s resigned himself to never having the one thing he wants most in life - Win. He’s afraid to hurt her, afraid that the violence he did in his youth will come out one day and harm her. He’s the very definition of a tortured hero. He is intense and moody but also extremely loyal with a great capacity for love. He’s also the most infuriatingly stubborn man I've ever met! He kisses Win passionately one moment and pushes her away the next. His mixed signals were enough to drive any girl a little batty. Luckily, Win is a persistent woman who knows what she wants. I like that she isn’t cowed by Merripen and stands up to him. Even when Merripen made me want to throw up my hands and give up, Win holds her ground. She has a quiet inner strength that anchors the entire family. I am also happy to say that we see more of Cam and Amelia in this one. They are one of my favorite couples and seeing them as a married couple only solidifies my love for them. Cam and Merripen also find answers to the mysterious origins of their tattoos. I won’t spoil it but let’s just say that the revelation is a big one that has great significance for both of them. I really can’t say enough about this series. I thought I was fully invested after the first book but now I am totally addicted. These characters are so well developed that I feel like I actually know them. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

Why no ebook? Hard to rate something I haven't read yet. I prefer to download from b&n but since they have no ebook, I will have to buy this from someplace else. Fortunately, I have a netbook and can download from any source.

There's something about the Hathaway's and their love interests... They are quirky and intriguing. I was looking forward to this book and found it to be very enjoyable. I love Kev. His character is dark, understandably so. He feels a love so powerful and deep that he is willing to deny it. Does that make sense? It didn't to Win either. He will do anything to protect her, even denying himself what they both long for. Her love has been thwarted for years by Kev's demons and the onset of Scarlet Fever. It left Win with weak lungs. Win's arrival back from the clinic that made her well results in a passionate encounter with Kev. However, Win also brings a potential suitor. This sets off a fiery set of events culminating in passion and discoveries for multiple characters. The only thing that left me a bit dissatisfied was the fact that the point of view switched back and forth from character to character (major and not so major). I was satisfied as Cam and Kev's pasts were revealed, but I did not really enjoy the multiple views. Also, Leo is introduced to the new governess. His POV on her is necessary for the following books, but it tended to distract me from the main storyline. Overall it is a good book. If you enjoy the Hathaway series, read this.

This is a truly sentimental book with characters that grew over time. As a reviewer suggested, it may be best to read the prequel as I was wondering about the supporting cast. However, once I started reading I did not want to put the book down. The chemistry between the two leads was "wow'. I felt that it was love grown over time and not the sudden type which made the hero/ heroine more poignant. This book paints a picture of that love flourishing over time and its lasting impression on the hero and heroine. Good read.

In 1836 the English attack a Gypsy camp. The youngster Kev Merripen tried to fight, but was knocked in the head by the butt of a rifle and stabbed in the back by a bayonet. His tribe fled leaving him behind to die. A hated Gadjo the Hathaway patriarch saves his life though Kev¿s disdain would have someone think otherwise. Filled with gypsy superstitions, Kev is raised in the home of a rationalist. However, his host¿s daughter Winifred softens his hostile outlook. Kev loves Win who is sent to France to recover from an illness. ------------ A dozen years later she comes home only to find her childhood friend angry and nasty towards her and seemingly everyone else. He tries to drive her away even as she only shows him kindness. Win knows she loves her gypsy and considers seduction to win his heart. However, she begins to give up on him leaving room for other suitors as Kev struggles between his desire for Win and his belief that a Gadjo and Romany cannot unite even in love.------------- Lisa Kleypas¿ latest Victorian romance (see MINE TILL MIDNIGHT and THE DEVIL IN WINTER) is an engaging tale starring a wonderful extremely tolerant female and a somewhat self defeating hero. Kev is the posterboy for the self fulfilling prophecy as he assumes the worst of others so takes no chances on his heart. Readers will appreciate the determined Win trying to persuade the obstinate Kev they belong together although his stubbornness can become a trifle frustrating.------------ Harriet Klausner

I loved this book immensely. I loved Kev, Rohan, and Leo. This book made me feel so connected to Win, who is my favorite Hathaway female. Even in the first book in which she was sickly I could feel her strong spirit and connection to Kev. I liked the way the author went back into the history of the characters lives in order to clarify why characters behaved or thought a certain way. This story gave details about the love between Win and Kev that was introduced in book 1. I loved all the referenes to the gypsy lifestyle and beliefs.

Merripen is an intriguing character similar to Sin in "Born in Sin" by Kinley MacGregor. They both have deep resonating personalities and values.
