If you thought the Hathaway series got off to a slow start I can assure you it is full steam ahead now. As far as I'm concerned this is the best of the series by far. Tempt Me At Twilight is one of the most romantic romances I have read in a very long time. Poppy Hathaway is up to bat in this one and she already has her heart set on the Honorable Michael Bayning. They have courted all season long and Poppy is just waiting for him to pop the question so she can live happily ever after.
Enter wealthy hotel owner Harry Rutledge. He owns the hotel where her family spends the season in London. If you follow this series you will remember Beatrice of the many animal menagerie? Her ferret, Dodger, is loose in the hotel and Poppy must catch him before a love letter he has stolen causes a scandal. This clever opening to the story will have you laughing out loud as Harry and Poppy definitely "meet cute." Beatrice approves Harry immediately when she finds out he has been...
Initially, I wasn't drawn to reading this novel. It's been a while since I read Seduce Me at Sunrise (which I definitely preferred over Amelia and Cam's book), and Poppy was the one character I couldn't really remember. However, my mind was quickly changed once I began reading.
Tempt Me at Twilight has your classic heroine: Poppy is your smarter-than-average female who has trouble fitting in with the British ton. Harry is the enigmatic and slightly villainous hero. The predictability ends there because this novel is full of surprises. Unlike Amelia and Win's marriages, Poppy and Harry's occurs quite early on and under very different and difficult circumstances. What I predicted to be a problem down the road for them was actually addressed on their wedding day. Also, Harry is quite evil (I say that with a laugh and a grain of salt). On a serious note, I believed him to be the anti-hero that Sebastian should have been in Devil in Winter (though I love that book as well). He...
At last!! Another Kleypas novel - now we all just have to survive the wait for the story we've all been waiting for: Leo and "Marks" (or Catherine/Cat, which we learn in this novel is her first name). I completely agree with the reviewer Luckee that this book was definitely satisfying and enjoyable, but there was just a little something missing. Is it worth rushing out to your nearest bookstore and buying though? Yes. Will you be left feeling giddy after you read it? Yes. And are there the classic characters we all love, the chemistry Kleypas excels at writing, and the humorous and witty scenes we adore? Yes. So basically: yes, buy it, steal it, whatever, but read it!
MAIN CHARACTERS, Harry Rutledge and Poppy Hathaway: Harry (early 30s) is a wonderful hero - the kind of bad-guy-whom-we-love-to-love hero that Kleypas creat
