Marrying Winterborne by Lisa Kleypas

***** (5/5 stars)aa

I wish that I could give this book an infinite amount of stars because I simply adored it and I cannot say enough good about it. Without a doubt, the pages of this book will be worn out as I read it over and over again. I’ve invested in a hard copy forever edition after reading it on my Nook.

Characters such as Rhys Winterborne, are the reason why I feel in love with reading. They are also the reason why I have a few book crushes. And yes, Rhys is at the top of that list. Although this self-made millionaire was slightly rough around the edges, that hardness combined with his vulnerability while in the presence of Lady Helen, are what captivated me from the beginning.

Once again, Lisa Kleypas hit a home run with her newest series, The Ravenels. Marrying Winterborne is the second book in this series and can be read independantly. However, I’d highly suggest you read the first book in the series, “Cold Hearted Rake” which introduces the unexpected love affair between shy, bookish Lady Helen and ruthless businessman Rhys Winterborne.
