I have read eveyone of Lisa's historical books. Each is wonderful in its own way but tops on my list is this story. Amanda is celebrating her 30th birthday when she meets Jack. Both characters are wonderfully written, are true partners in their relationship and the sex scenes are very steamy - even for Lisa. Great story. A must read.

This novel has a readable style compared to most romance novels, but what makes it stand out are the plot and characterizations which are about as far away from the conventional historical romance as you can get--in good ways. The heroine, Amanda Briars, is a women of independent means in Victorian England who makes her living as a novelist. She arranges for a male prostitute to come to her on her 30th birthday because she's tired of being a spinster virgin. Except what the madame sends is a man she thinks might be Amanda's match--Jack Devlin, a young publisher. And that's about as much I can tell you without it being a spoiler, except this breaks other romance conventions--which is the reason this was among my favorite reads on a romance reading list I recently worked through. I also think I find Jack just about the most appealing hero among the romance books I've read--he's a real entrepreneur, an ambitious self-made man and I for one find that a thousand times more attractive than a title.

Scoundrels, Rakes, Rogues, galore when reformed they become MAGNANIMOUS MEN, & ENTICINGLY APPETIZING HUSBANDS. This novel, Lady Sophia's Lover, & Devil in Winter, are by far the greatest erotic novels written by Lisa Kleypas, I've read thus far. Yes, it can be overwhelming explicit at times. And yes, I did blush & became embarassed; however, the revelation discoverd at the conclusion by Jack & Amanda is GROUNDBREAKINGLY EXQUISITE, well worth the read. Every single novel written by Lisa Kleypas, is overwhelmingly surprising, and I'm intensely infacuated with them. All the characters within in LK's series are basicly interlaced with each other, therefore, to fully comprehend them you should start with the first novels that were written. Don't do as I have, I started with Mine Until Midnight. And, I've been working backwards since; however, I'm extremely enthused with discovering the triumphs of the characters who have been mentioned. AS USUAL LK DESERVES A 5 STAR & BEYOND RATING!!

I loved this book. I loved how the characters could not get it together and then finally find that peace. I also loved how modern thinking Jack Devlin was and how he pushed Amanda to do more. My very favorite part was that Jack was 5 years young than her. Love it, since my husband is younger than me.

Her best Novel! A MUST READ! I love everything I have ever read by her. And don't have to read the back cover , to decide if I want to buy it. Now, as much as I enjoy them all & keep them in my nook or library to read again. The Hathaways Series being my favorite... followed by the Wallflowers Series. And as great as I think every novel she writes is. I still stand by the previous being the best! Well I stand corrected! This has now become my FAVORITE! I don't have one complaint... I loved the entire novel from the beginning to end & could not put it down! Loved the characters, the story & the interactions between them. I LOVED the rapport between Amanda & Jack... I could go on & on & be saying the same thing! You just can't go wrong with a Lisa Kleypas Novel!

A well written romance novel. The main and most side characters are fully developed and interesting. Unlike a lot of romantic novels I've read, the couple are completely developed before everything gets hot and heavy in their relationship. There's a lot of sexual tension between the main couple, but it's not thrown in your face constantly and they get to know each other for half of the book before anything really happens between them. We see why they want each other, which has rarely happened in romantic novels I've read. It's usually sex for the sake of sex. No real reason why they want or need that person. But in this novel, it is made completely clear. My issue with the novel is the last third of it. After such a wonderful set up of the relationship, the writer decides to make this wonderful novel into something ordinary. Once the couple finally does the deed, we literally hear of nothing else. The sex scenes became so numerous and so monotonous, that I ended up skipping over most of them to get to the end. I also felt that once the couple "found" each other, the story puttered out. It seemed a bit thrown together, which was surprising since the rest of the book is so good. Other than that, I would recommend this novel because the writing and the character development in the first half of it is so wonderful and surprising for a romantic novel. It's completely all around predictable but a definite feel good read, even with it's flaws.

This Lisa's best work; it's the epitome of all things that make romance great:  anxiety; attraction; lust; friendship and ultimately love as one person has to release his fear to embrace joy while the other has to be brave enough to risk everything for a great passion and love. The fact that Jack is younger then Amanda, and that  he supports her dreams and pushes her to be successful in a man's world well ...it just doesn't get any better.

This was a really good love story. Very sexual and not for under 18. Jack is one of the most romantic and sexy heros ever and it was a wonderful period romance with a wonderful ending. I will read more by this author. Phyl p

Kleypas never disappoints! From the unique beginning to the age old dance of love, hate jealousy this book has it all. Loved the fact that the heroine was an independant successful author! Sexy, sensual and crackling with sexual tension!

Jack Devlin is the perfect man. I think he is my favorite hero of all of Lisa Kleypas. This book is sexy and unconventional, yet mostly within the realm of possibility. I love the way he brings out the best in her. This is a theme LK has developed in many of her novels from her very first rough book. How one plus one is greater than two.

I read most of Lisa Kleypas books and this one is also a good story to read. I found the characters to be really like able and their build up for their romance to have just the right amount of drama. The story is not slow placed and their are some real memorable squeal worthy scenes. Not my all time favorite but if your like me and have read a bunch of Romance novels for the actual romance, then this is a good story to have under your belt.
