Poppy Hathaway loves her unconventional family, though she longs for normalcy. Then fate leads to a meeting with Harry Rutledge, an enigmatic hotel owner and inventor with wealth, power, and a dangerous hidden life. When their flirtation compromises her own reputation, Poppy shocks everyone by accepting his proposal - only to find that her new husband offers his passion, but not his trust.
And she was everything he needed....
Harry was willing to do anything to win Poppy - except to open his heart. All his life, he has held the world at arm's length...but the sharp, beguiling Poppy demands to be his wife in every way that matters.
Still, as desire grows between them, an enemy lurks in the shadows. Now if Harry wants to keep Poppy by his side, he must forge a true union of body and soul, once and for all.

Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
So far Tempt Me At Twilight is my favorite Hathaway story. Although based on the reviews for book 4 that might change. I love the Hathaway family. They are witty and fun and always make me laugh. This is a fun/easy listen and Rosalyn Landor is excellent! I would suggest starting with book 1 first, but this would make a great stand alone story as well.
Easy read involving the eccentric Hathaway family, each family member with their own quirks and nuances. The dialogue can be very funny...which is a real plus with me. Simply an endearing series...read in order to fully appreciate the dynamics of the group.
I have read many romance novels.. Listened to anyway.. This is the perfect combination of romance, intregue & just fun. A Joy to Listen Too.
Harry Rutledge totally does it for me. Right up there with Sebastian Lord St. Vincent.
just read it.
She's incredible. Both male and female voices right on. Characters completely distinguishable and lovely to listten to.
I've listened to it twice so far. I like to savor them, if I can. But I did listen to this one pretty obsessively until it was finished.
This is the 4th lisa kleypas book i read and now i can say that i have become a huge fan
her books are all so well writen and interesting that from the moment you read the first page-(or hear in this case) you can't put the book down
it can be say about the book but also about the whole series that the characters are lovable even do some of them are deeply flawed
in this book specially you feel that the characters are real ,you want to help them you feel for them .
as every woman that now and then likes to read a good romantic novel knows usually most of the weigh of the book rests on the shouldersof the main hero
in this case harry delivers like no other
he is most definitely
not the typical
romantic hero and thats probably the reason no one can resist this "villain"
if i have to point out a flaw is that the book was way too short i wanted more
poppy -harry interactions( more of their love of if his grouth)
so to end my ranting i will only say that if you like good romance good writing some laughs and some great characters this is the book you should read : )
without a doubt my favorite kleypas book and harry is definitely one of my top romantic novel heroes ever
The love story between Poppy and Harry is a delight. Harry is smart, dangerous and full of wit. It is my favorite of the series. Lisa Kleypas did an excellent job.
Absolutely fantastic book. So far my favorite Hathaway novel.
The hero is a bad guy who has never known love, but has tons of sweltering sex appeal. The heroine is one of my favorite ever. She's strong and smart, especially in distress and under pressure. and incredibly full of love! Their relationship begins with a very unique set of circumstances, with the heroine to marry another man that she cares for. The "hero" interferes with the relationship in a conniving manner, and he seems impossible to redeem. There is lots of chemistry between the couple, and it is great fun to watch the story unfold.
The Hathaway family really shines in this book. I love everything about Tempt Me at Twilight. It reminded me why I love LK so much!
this should fit your mood, but it’s not a stand out story.
I enjoy the idea of the Hathaway family with their interesting and eccentric characters. There are five books in the series. If this were a standalone book, I would not have liked it as much. The series is what makes it better.
The two main characters had changes in feelings that were not well developed. Harry is wealthy and had many women lovers. He meets Poppy, has a short conversation with her, and all of a sudden he’s in love and does big things to make her his. Poppy can’t forgive him and despises him for a lengthy part of the book, but then all of a sudden she wants him.
I’ve listened to three Rosalyn Landor books recently and find the same thing. She does lovely female voices - like Julie Andrews. But she uses an odd voice for men. A worse problem is her emotional interpretation of men. There is nothing sensual or seductive about them. They are distant or angry. They sound like a brother, not a lover.
Genre: historical romance
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
Love you Hathaways. I adored the characters! the twist of events! Lisa well done :) and Thank you Rosalyn for such a perfect performance.
Ugh. The narrator read the male lead like she was doing a bad voiceover for a foreign film. There was nothing resembling a strong sexy male in that voice. I adore Lisa Kleypas' work, but this one was ruined for me.
