This is definitely one of the sweetest romance novels you'll encounter because the deep love that resonates between Win & Kev isn't based on lust, but an innocent love they built during childhood. It's very easy to cheer for these two lead characters. Win has to do the impossible because not only does she have to convince Kev that her childhood illness is in the past, but she also has to convince him that despite differences in background, he is worthy of her love. But, what makes this story (& the whole series) absolutely delightful is the nontraditional Hathaway family. This loving & hilarious family don't care what society thinks of them. More importantly, they will do anything to keep each other safe and happy.
As usual, Rosalyn Landon does an excellent job as narrator.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Seduce Me at Sunrise is the second book in the Hathoway's series, and it is a book you will not want to put down. I would definitely recommend it to any of my adult friends.
Lisa has a gift for developing very likable characters, that as a reader, you begin to invest your time in getting to know. I love this family of misfits! They are precious, and funny, and loyal. They love each other as a family should, with "warts and all".
You will definitely want to begin with the first book in the series, "Mine Till Midnight", where you will first be introduced to the Hawthorn family, and learn the story of Amelia, the oldest Hawthorn sister and Cam, a wonderfully exotic man who is half gypsy, and half Irish. Their story will capture your attention, and lead you to Seduce Me at Sunrise, where we learn about Winn, Hawthorn sister #2, and Kev. I just downloaded the third book in the series and plan to begin tonight.
Rosalyn Landor is always an amazing performer. I have downloaded several books (including those by Lisa Kleypas) based on the fact that Rosalyn would be the reader. Her voices are amazing and realistic. I have enjoyed each book I have downloaded where she read.
This series of books will provide a full well-rounded experience of emotions. The reader is immediately captivated by the clearity of the descriptions, whether it be a character or setting, and with each word, the books are more difficult to put down.
DOWNLOAD THIS BOOK...DEFINITELY WORTH THE CREDIT!
The characters were well developed
The ending, it was very romantic
She's a great performer. She develops them all and you feel like you are there as things happen, but if I had to pick I would say Rohan is my favorite in all five books in the series
It evoked both emotions in me depending on the part of the story
You must read them all and the order does not matter.
Say something about yourself!
I started to skip this book because of the review I read. I would have missed an important part of the Hathaway story as well the times I laughed out loud. This book is an intergral part to the Hathaway series not just a
Finding the family they had searched for in Noah.
How do you pick a favorite from an ensemble cast?
I held my breath when Cam's life was threatened.
I love books in series and this is one of the best to me because the characters are involved in each book, not just mentioned as in some series. It didn't distract from the main characters but enhanced them. I was also delighted that the Wallflowers flowed into the Hathaways series.
It is mindless entertainment to listen to while driving around. Comparable to all the Lisa Kleypas books with romance, mild sex, a tragedy, and a predictable ending.
Any of Lisa Kleypas Hathaway books. Someone had said it was less interesting, but I found it the same as the others.
It would give away the book if I said this- but near the end.
An Unlikely Match
The two main characters were so thoroughly developed earlier in the series that it was truly cathartic to see them finally come together. This story is very romantic, sweet, passionate, and compelling. I wish all novels were written so well. Love the narration too! I will probably listen to it again!
I liked this story best out of all the stories in the Hathaway's series. The main character torn by his past and not feeling good enough for his love, made the story sweet and it engrossed me into wanting more.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: London & Hampshire, 1851, but with back story
Genre: Early Victorian romance.
Narration: Once again, Rosalyn Landor does an excellent interpretation of the characters. I enjoy her work.
This is the second book in the Hathaways series, and focuses on the second sister, Win. There's also a lot back story, mainly having to do with Merripen, but also some history of the family members. The back story also shows the development of his relationship with Win. My biggest problem is with the shift in Merripen's character when Win goes to the clinic in France. He becomes bitter and more uncommunicative than he was before. Why? It seems terribly selfish of him to ask her not to go, when he has no intention of carrying their relationship further. I think he must have been the most difficult personality for LK to write, because you're supposed to root for him but, at least for me, there really wasn't much growth in the character. He never really gives me the warm fuzzies. The really great part of this book is the interaction with the Rom, and, oh yeah, the doctor in the wardrobe scene. Win becomes back from France pretty kick-ass. And blood thirsty.
Worth the time and credit? Yes, but do try to catch it in a BOGO, or some other sale.
