Publisher's Summary

He is everything she wants to avoid….

For two years, Catherine Marks has been a paid companion to the Hathaway sisters—a pleasant position, with one caveat. Her charges’ older brother, Leo Hathaway, is thoroughly exasperating. Cat can hardly believe that their constant arguing could mask a mutual attraction. But when one quarrel ends in a sudden kiss, Cat is shocked at her powerful response—and even more so when Leo proposes a dangerous liaison.

She is not at all what she seems….

Leo must marry and produce an heir within a year to save his family home. Catherine’s respectable demeanor hides a secret that would utterly destroy her. But to Leo, Cat is intriguing and infernally tempting, even to a man resolved never to love again. The danger Cat tried to outrun is about to separate them forever—unless two wary lovers can find a way to banish the shadows and give in to their desires.

Spend some more time with the Hathaways.

    Story
    "Wow, this is different!"

    This is the story of Leo and Cat, who have been circling each other for a couple of books. Everyone knows they secretly are intrigued by each other, but it becomes more important to address it now that there's the possibility that the family might not get to keep their home due to a legal snag unless Leo produces a legitimate male heir within a year. Some really interesting things are discussed in this story like Leo's drug addition and how he has dealt with it. I'd say it wouldn't have been easy to kick an opium habit in those days. I'm impressed with the development of this story and how Leo and Cat overcome tremendous emotional barriers on both sides to love. Well done, as always. The dangerous twist in end of this story was an important one. It was quite shocking to me, too. I did love the brother angle (one who always saves his sister, one who never did). It was a nice touch.

    I love this performance, except there was one line that was supposed to be either Poppy or Cat and it was delivered as Harry. It was funny as I have never had that happen before!

    Story
    "Leo is guaranteed to entertain you in this book!"
    If you could sum up Married by Morning in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, sensual, intriguing!


    Any additional comments?

    Leo is guaranteed to entertain you throughout this book!!!

    The story of Leo's past, his mourning, self distraction, rescue and finally remake of a better self was showcased in the prior three books and is well understood at this point. What comes with the fourth installment is the unravelling of all his defenses from his pursuit of the unrelenting Cathrine Marx. They are long time enemies and as they circumstantially get to know each other, piece by piece, they have to fight the unavoidable pull between them while fighting their own demons.

    Jovial banter between a highly moral Kat and a self deprecating Leo is thoroughly exhilarating!

    "Great story for Leo & Catherine"

    This was Leo Ramsey and Catherine Marks HEA. If you remember, Cat is the governess to Leo's sisters. She is uptight, proper and a mystery. Leo is a rascal, having list his way after his fiancée passed away in his arms.
    In this book, a widow came to claim the Ramsey estate unless Leo got married and produced an heir. And Cat's past was quickly catching up with her. This was a case of Leo and Cat saving each other. Vintage LK. Great writing, witty characters, loving fam. A great read by Rosalyn Landor. She just brought this book to life!

    "Loved the whole series"

    The Hathaway family is completely charming, and I recommend reading the entire series in order. These are some of Kleypas's most lighthearted stories and characters, though there is plenty of drama and suspense. Plenty of humor in the witty clash between Leo and Cat.

    "If you love witty dialogue this is it!"

    Some of the best dialogue in a romance I have ever read - a terrific story line and all wrapped up in a touching romance. This is a must read and an all time favorite!

    "My favorite of the series"

    Definitely my favorite book of the series. But I'll admit that I"m oddly not really interested in reading the last book after devouring the last four. I guess my obsession with the Hathaways ended with Leo.

    "Lisa Kleypas is the BEST!!"
    Where does Married by Morning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed the story line.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Married by Morning?

    When Leo tells Kat how he really feels about her.....I am a hopeless romantic


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    I loved Leo's character.

    "Another GREAT one by Lisa Kleypas!!!"

    I love the Hathaway series and of course wicked, wicked Leo is my favorite. I love the way the Leo and Marks bicker constantly. There are so many instances in this book where I laugh or smile. I love the team of Lisa Kleypas, as writer, and Rosalyn Landor, as narrator. They never fail to deliver on all accounts.

    Rosalyn Landor is my very favorite narrator. She can do many accents and varieties of both male and female voices. She is THE BEST!

    Lisa Kleypas always writes great love stories with witty repartee, a little bit of intrigue and convincing friend and family bonds. I love her stories, the descriptions of the country side, carriages, clothes and houses is always fascinating. You can also tell that she does a lot of research for most of her books as she tries to capture something historically significant.

    I have to say that she is probably my favorite historical romance writer. I've only listened to one of her current day romance novels and I wasn't too crazy about it. BUT - if you are looking for GREAT, FANTASTIC, and ENJOYABLE historical romance - Lisa Kleypas is the way to go.

    Happy listening!
