This happens to be one of my all-time personally favorite historical romances and one of my all-time favorite romance authors. But this in particular is one of my favorites of hers. You have the story of Winifred Hathaway and Kev Merripen. It is the second book in Lisa Kleypas’s Hathaway series.
Basically, Kev Merripen was a Gypsy boy who was treated like less than a dog by his Gypsy tribe, and was left for dead. The Hathaway family took him in at a young age, and he was very angry and wanted to leave before he hurt them or made their lives miserable. However, when he met Win Hathaway, he felt like she was his soul mate. But he didn’t want to hurt her, so he always kept himself at a distance. Still, he made the decision that would never leave her side. Win basically became the center of his life.
This book in the series jumps back in time to when they meet and then travels forward to the current day of the story where Win is going away to get better because she’s been sick for a couple of years. Merripen does not want her to go, but she does anyway and then comes back two years later finally healthy. She wants to have relationship with Merripen and she wants him to finally admit that he’s in love with her so they can get married. He refuses to do it because he is convinced that all he is going to do it is hurt her.
What I Like About This Book:
The reason I love this book is because a third of this book has all this wonderful teen angst that we forget about as we grow older – that feeling that just seeing the other person is enough to make you happy. It’s got these two teenagers hovering around each other that don’t feel like they can be together, but they both want too. They’re a perfect match in so many ways but they’re also complete opposites.
What I Don’t Like About This Book:
The only thing I did not like about this book is the fact that it had to end because the whole story is fantastic. The whole story is filled with passion and Sizzle. The sex scenes are great, so if you don’t like sex scenes, don’t read the book. I personally don’t mind. And the ending is fantastic. Thankfully, since it is the second book in the series, you get to see some of their story before and you get to see their story after. But to put this book down with just them is probably the worst part of the book.
So – easy read. Great passion. Great sizzle. I highly recommend it. Five stars all the way. Definitely read this one if you like Historicals.
