    "BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY!"

    I love Lisa Kleypas. She is probably one of my favorite romance writers. This story is one of her best. It is an unconventional love story and one that crosses racial/cultural lines (especially in that time and place). Kev is big, rough half gypsy with a past that would have crippled a weaker man. Win is a lovely, but fragile girl who is part of a very unconventional family. They fall in love a first sight during their teens when Kev is rescued and adopted into Win's family. They are obviously soul mates destined to be together, regardless of all the travails and roadblocks thrown their way.

    Story
    "Meripen finds his peace!"
    Any additional comments?

    Despite the "predictiveness" of this story given the long history of Meripen and Wynn, the author manages to infuse the plot with unexpected twists and turns that keep you attentive until the very end. I am giving this book four stars due to some issues I have with Meripen's personality, which is too "primal" and monosyllabic for my taste, but the author managed to justify some of that by revealing his early childhood.

    Wynn wins your heart (try saying this three times :) almost instantly and makes you vouch for her passionately throughout her ordeals.

    Story
    "This book got me through rush hour!"
    If you could sum up Seduce Me at Sunrise in three words, what would they be?

    Intense Thrilling Romance


    What other book might you compare Seduce Me at Sunrise to and why?

    Mine Till Midnight (The Hathaway book 1)
    It's just I great but we get to see even more layers unfold and more questions answered. Merripen's story is crucial to the Hathaway family history. The romance is just as intense and there are some thriller perilous side stories.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This one is just as great as the others. She is my favorite narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was feeling the emotions as they were being expressed. I definitely snickered a bit.


    Any additional comments?

    Rosalyn Landor is great at expressing emotions, desperation, and romance scenes.
    The romance scenes are detailed but not grotesque. They express the passions we all hope to experience with love.

    Story
    "2 ½ stars. Wasn’t fun."

    Too much anger and rejection for me.

    I liked the character definitions. When Kev was a boy he was treated like an abused pit bull trained for fights. He is emotionally damaged and refuses to act on his love for Win. He thinks he must never have her, but he doesn’t want anyone else to have her. The beautiful Win loved him from the moment she met him. After years of being rejected by Kev, she finally gives up and agrees to marry another.

    The story didn’t work for me. I didn’t feel fun anticipation of a developing romance. Most of the book has Kev being angry at everyone. Although he changes at the end I didn’t feel good. Part of it may have been the narrator’s interpretation. Even during sex, Kev did not sound warm.

    Kev and Cam have identical tattoos which was mentioned in the previous book. That mystery is now solved, and it’s a good story.

    NARRATOR:
    Rosalyn Landor has a lovely voice for females, but she is not good for men. It sounds like they are holding their breath. Her emotional interpretation for men is reserved and harsh. It lacks warmth or desire. I compare her to the narrator Susan Duerden. Susan is sensual, passionate, sexy, seductive, and shows desire when reading a man. She turns me on. Rosalyn has none of that.

    Genre: historical romance

    "Can I bash Merripen pver the head ?"

    I know I must be among the minority but I could not finish this book ! That's a rarity for a LK book . Merripen seems just stupid and stuborn , I couldn't get the chemistry between Win and him. They seemed estranged for most of the book. The beginning of the book was sweet and touching but goes downhill from then on.There is too much interference from the rest of the family . I swear literally everyone in the family has had a one on one intervention session with Merripen ! Also the story seems contrived .There is some wierd sexual banter between Marx and Leo while Cam is literally on his death bed .
    Leo and Marx's story is the most entertaining of this story followed by that of Beatrice and Poppy.
    Sorry this was a letdown but won't stop me from reading more LK.

    "Hooked on the Hathaway's"

    I first discovered Lisa Kleypass when listening to her modern romance novels which are a must read/listen. I normally enjoy more of the modern romance books but tried seduce me at sunrise on one of the sales audible was having, and, well… leave to Lisa Kleypass to hook you right in. I really enjoyed the Hathaway's series.

    "If you enjoy the "formula" you might like it..."

    This is just another typical Kleypas novel. Same basic plot, only the names have changed. This time, instead of the two main characters "hating" each other while really being mysteriously attracted to each other (usually the females act like raving beotches), this hero denies the obvious and throws up ridiculous barriers to love. As usual there is about 20 mins of interesting story. Unfortunately there is more eye-rolling silliness, and people behaving so stupidly, you want to scream at them.

    "Narrator fail"

    Narrator Landor is the worst choice I can imagine for Kleypas' historical romance. I love the books but the audio is unbearable. Kev as written by Kleypas is a wonderful hero, not the barking old man portrayed by Landor.
