    Lisa Kleypas is so important to me as a fan of historical romance She was the reason I got into the genre in the first place and it was most of her books that became the standard by which I judged others The latter of course changed once I broadened my horizons and got acuainted with the works of Amanda uick Elizabeth Hoyt and Monica McCarty but LK is still definitely a legend in her own right That was why I

    I've hated main characters before and I'd feel absolute glee if some of Kristen Ashley's alpha assholes were slowly tortured and killed by a girl scout troop But this main female character is definitely on the very top of my most hated females list She is the biggest hypocritical self righteous bitch I have ever had the misfortun

    4 starsOkay so here it is A new Historical Romance by my ueen of Historical Romances I'm also a firm supporter and believer of her Contemporaries but yeah The Historicals right?

    If you like me enjoy a good piece of fluff every now and then you could do a lot worse than Lisa Kleypas' Cold Hearted RakeIs it perfection?I didn't think so Personal opinionBut like I mentioned at this pointI'm just in it for the fluffIn other words while I didn't fall in love with the hero or the heroine I have to say that Kleypas

    A ruined estate a depleted fortune and a woman he couldn't have Or better an inheritance he's too selfish and immature to appreciate not enough somebody else's money left for him to suander and how to bed a woman silly while carefully remaining the same jerk you were on page one and then wanting to pass off as a romance

    Not so cold hearted after allCold Hearted Rake was everything I hoped it would be Ms Kleypas has the remarkable ability to make you want to step back in time and live it You forget about the lack of modern conveniences medicine and rights of women You don't mind the idea of no phones or computers and instead have communication that takes hours or days instead of seconds to deliver It seems extravagant to have someone dr

    35 STARSIt's been a while since LK has written a HR She's among my top 3 fave authors and she writes beautifully I enjoyed this book but I didn't love it If I'm comparing it to other HR books she's written most notably The Wallflower

    Not what I expectedHad it not been for the fact that I couldn't warm up to the heroine Kathleen throughout the whole book I would have had no problem rating this one higher than 3 stars Apparently Cold Hearted Rak

Y and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction only one uestion remainsCan she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known. 35 STARSIt s been a while since LK has written a HR She s among my top 3 fave authors and she writes beautifully I enjoyed this book but I didn t love it If I m comparing it to other HR books she s written most notably The Wallflowers series then this isn t AS good WhyLet s get the good stuff out of the way The writing was flawless of course The descriptions the emotion the use of proseI enjoyed all that The hero Devon Ravenel was alright He was uite an asshole at the beginning but I like that since it opens up so much room for improvement He did improve but I wasn t always impressed by him When you have previous heroes that slayed me Sebastian St Vincent from Devil in Winter is the most notorious comparing Devon to him was like comparing a dandelion to a rose Really the whole lot of heroes from The Wallflowers series were amazing and memorable For me Devon was okayThe heroine Kathleen was the fiery and independent type She was headstrong and stubborn I don t mind that but I prefer my heroines like Evie from Devil in Winter or Daisy from Scandal in Spring I love the uieter heroines the Unlikely ones the underdogs I love how they accomplish what the stubborn ones do but effortlessly through their strength and merit I became annoyed with Kathleen many times and found her to be abrasive with her remarks As a couple Devon and Kathleen fought too much They weren t as convincing as they could have been The funny thing is I loved Helen and Winterborne Theirs was a secondary story line but the next book is devoted to them They reminded me of Evie and Sebastian Helen s shyness hides a passionate woman desperate for a chance to get out I think Winterborne is the man to help accomplish that with his unpolished nature and hard edges I honestly can t wait for their book Marrying Winterborne and I felt LK s trademark magic with those two as apposed to the main characters Anyways I did like this and am so glad LK is back Even not being a fan of the main characters you can t help but fall in love with the story and how it s written

A twist of fateDevon Ravenel London's most wickedly charming rake has just inherited an earldom But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities and than a few surprises His estate is saddled with debt and the late earl's three innocent sisters are still. I ve hated main characters before and I d feel absolute glee if some of Kristen Ashley s alpha assholes were slowly tortured and killed by a girl scout troop But this main female character is definitely on the very top of my most hated females list She is the biggest hypocritical self righteous bitch I have ever had the misfortune to read in HR I hope she dies of a minor feverThe story is about a guy Devon who inherits a title and land from his jackass cousin who dies from a fall from a horse The horse hated him and it seems that his bitchy widow Kathleen hated him just as much They were married for a total of three days before his death Maybe he just realized what a shrew he married and fell off the horse on purpose I wouldn t blame himDevon s inheritance is actually a giant money pit because the estate is in debt the house is in disrepair and the whole thing is a money bleeding mess He thinks he may just sell the whole thing and cut his losses It is definitely the wise choice Oh but the widow of three days Kathleen won t have it She freaks out and blames Devon for all of the problems of the estate that he barely knew existed until days ago Of course it s his fault How dare he not come in and take on all the problems and debts of a cousin who hated him and by the way he wasn t even invited to the wedding I m sure his invitation just got lost in the mail right A beloved family member who will inherit everything would certainly be an important guest on the big dayFor a completely unknown reason Devon crushes on Kathleen Because bitchy widows who constantly preach about how horrible someone is must be irresistible Therefore he decides to try and fix the house and make things work out He also allows Kathleen to continue living in HIS house as well as his female cousins who lived there He s a pretty nice guy for doing this Does Kathleen appreciate itWell let s see He decides to fix up the house that has floors literally falling apart and she is pissed off that there are workers in the house He has indoor plumbing installed so they no longer have to pee in bowls and use an outhouse and she freaks out I won t have it is her reaction to the plumbing being installed Oh so it s YOUR house and YOUR decision Um no Plus for someone who was supposedly sooooo concerned about the welfare of others she doesn t give a shit if servants have to cart around her shit in a bowl Not her problem It s inconvenient for her to have plumbing installed in not her house As a matter of fact even though she guilted and cajoled him into keeping the place she bitches complains and freaks out about everything he does to try and make things better It is exhaustingAnd then midway through the book we find out that she has been lying the whole time Mrs Self righteous Bitch is the biggest hypocrite ever She has even less moral ground to stand on when it comes to everything Her marriage of three days her mourning that makes everyone miserable her staying around this house as a parasitic shrew it s all a bunch of bullshit When this was revealed I was done She was bad enough before the big secret was revealed but when it was Um no I hated her with as much passion as Devon mysteriously has for herThe romance was so not believable that it was a joke Devon decided he loved her within minutes of seeing her It was literally ridiculous He hated his cousin and his cousin had bullied him when they were younger I think his real motivation is to screw his cousin s widow and have the last word in that battle And if he had said that I would have actually believed the romance and kind of liked him for being nefarious But for me to believe that any actual male would be attracted to this bitch No not buying it I got than halfway through this frustrating read and then just skimmed the rest for mentions of Helen Winterborne and West

Occupying the house along with Kathleen Lady Trenear a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon's ownA clash of willsKathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to den. 4 starsOkay so here it is A new Historical Romance by my ueen of Historical Romances I m also a firm supporter and believer of her Contemporaries but yeah The Historicals right I loved this story not necessarily because it was spectacular or breath taking but because this is the second opportunity this year where Lisa Kleypas takes us on a ride to her romance land again And from the oil rich high society in Joe s Brown Eyed Girl we come to Hampshire the motherland of the Hathaways and Lord Westcliff It s not necessary to summarise a detailed plot since it s a fairly simple formula Cold hearted Rake Devon inherits an earldom and has to take on the responsibility of a title with all it entails being in debt The widow of the late earl Kathleen doesn t want Devon to interfere and to leave her and her three sisters in law alone Huh think again Kathleen The story doesn t start off very smoothly since there s a lot of tension between Kathleen and Devon Both hate each other uite fiercely and it got to a point where I was suirming in my seat because I feared that it would break any chance for them to develop tender feelings But it turned for the better before I got frustrated so everything was fine And then for the biggest body part of the novel I downright loved it Loved it in a way that reminded me of my dear old favourite author and her characters her narrative voice and her sheer talent when it comes to creating a rounded up well developing story Her humour has developed in a nice way over the last few years with the result being a laid back smooth and simultaneously enticing humour And above all else the secondary characters were what held my interest the most and kept the entertainment level very highWeston He starts off as an overweight drunk who hasn t a care in the world except well his next drink And because this is not the first character in Lisa Kleypas re per toire who starts out as a drunk or nearly drunk I can emphasize that it s a beautifully optimistic process to watch them take a turn for the better Weston turns out to be a funny hardworking man with high scruples and a way of charming himself out of every bad situation I can t wait for his story since there s still much of the cynical man behind the smooth talking comedian and this author certainly knows how to write about those heroes Kathleen s sisters in law were adorable There are the hellion twins Pandora and Cassandra and the slightly older and uiet and demure Helen I connected to them all instantly to both twins with their endearing uirks and their never ending flow of conversation stuff but even a bit to Helen She s shy doesn t talk very much and stands mostly in the background but there are some progresses in this novel where I think that she is really well matched already view spoilerWinterborne and Helen please hide spoiler
