Publisher's Summary

Kev Merripen has longed for the beautiful, well-bred Winnifred Hathaway ever since her family rescued him from the brink of death when he was just a boy. But this handsome Gypsy is a man of mysterious origins - and he fears that the darkness of his past could crush delicate, luminous Win. So Kev refuses to submit to temptation...and before long Win is torn from him by a devastating twist of fate.

Then, Win returns to England...only to find that Kev has hardened into a man who will deny love at all costs. Meantime, an attractive, seductive suitor has set his sights on Win. It's now or never for Kev to make his move. But first, he must confront a dangerous secret about his destiny - or risk losing the only woman he has lived for...

    "Not for me but will work for others"

    Listened for Fun (Audible)
    Overall Rating: DNF

    Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)

    DNF Reasons: Seduce Me at Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas wasn't horrible (despite my DNF) but it wasn't my favorite romance troupe. I know that in most romance the hero never feels "good enough" for the leading lady but this one was a little too much of that. I listened to 3 hours and then fast forwarded to the end to listen to the last hour. I did really like the side characters and look forward to their stories. This just wasn't for me!

    Narrated By Rosalyn Landor / Length: 9 hrs and 45 mins


    Rosalyn is hands down one of my favorite historical romance narrators! She is just all around excellent!

    Story
    "Not my fave, but you'll appreciate the info."

    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.

    "Eh, it's okay."

    I enjoyed the first Hathaway book enough to look for the second. Unfortunately I found it a bit tedious. The best parts were with Amelia and Rowan from book one. The Kev and Win story just seems contrived with roadblocks of their own making. I finished the book, but only because I paid for it.

    "Decent read"

    Considering that Lisa Kleypas is one of my favorite authors this one was disappointing to me. I wasn't crazy about the gypsy sub-plot and found the male protaganist to be surly and unattractive. My disappointment in this one will not discourage me from buying other selection by this author.

    "Keep reading, the rest of the series is wonderful."

    Kev is not my favorite hero, and this was a rather frustrating book.

    The next three books of this series are amazing. So keep reading!!! :)

    "I love this series"

    I always expect great things from Kleypas and this series does not disappoint. The characters are strong and entertaining and their interaction with each other builds a good story. I don't agree with other reviewers who did not like Kev. Considering his background he is believable. For him to move from point A to point B would have been difficult and how he did so made sense.

    I look forward to continuing this series.

    Ms Landor is one of my favorite narrators.

    Story
    "A lively romp with funny characters"
    What did you love best about Seduce Me at Sunrise?

    A little bit soppy with interactions between Merripen and Wen. But the lively interactions between other characters provided needed dilution.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Loved that revelation of relationship between Cam and Kev.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favorite comes to mind.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Wen and Leo returned from Paris.


    Any additional comments?

    Typical Kleypas style with interesting characters and spicy love scenes.
