Description

Jack Travis leads the uncomplicated life of a millionaire Texas playboy. He makes no commitments, he loves many women, he lives for pleasure. But no one has ever truly touched his heart or soul. Until one day, a woman appears on his doorstep with fury on her face and a baby in her arms. It seems Jack is the father and this woman is the baby's aunt. The real mother has abandoned the child to her more responsible sister. And now, Jack is being called upon to take responsibility for the first time in his life. With delicious romantic tension, characters so real they walk onto the page and into your heart, Lisa Kleypas delivers the kind of novel that makes you laugh, love; cry and cheer ...in Smooth Talking Stranger.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 02, 2009 – Ella Varner grew up with a troublesome mother and an insecure sister, but she has managed to come out of it reasonably sane, with a good (if vegan) boyfriend, Dane, and a job as an advice columnist. All of this gets turned upside down when her sister disappears and sticks Ella with her newborn, Luke. Determined to find Luke's father, Ella tracks down a likely suspect millionaire playboy Jack Travis. The encounter results in Travis and Ella unexpectedly engaged in an irrepressible attraction. Meanwhile, Ella grows fond of baby Luke and fears what will happen when Tara returns. As Ella grapples with conflicting desires, she learns some important lessons about love and trust. Though Kleypas has trouble breaking her male characters out of archetype and the arc is familiar, Ella's familial dysfunction distinguishes her from other heroines, and her self-awareness draws her out of a stereotypical shell. This will please romance fans, even if it hews a bit too closely to genre conventions.

Customer Reviews

Read this series, you won't be able to put these books down!!!

I absolutely ADORE Lisa Kleypas! I picked up Sugar Daddy on a whim, started reading it and couldn't put it down-- it made me laugh, made me cry, and (most surprisingly) made me keep wanting more... I've since bought several copies and given them to friends and everyone has loved it just as much as I did!
I had Blue Eyed Devil waiting when I finished Sugar Daddy and I loved it too! In fine tradition, this book keeps the laughs (and occasional embarrassed blushes) coming!

I liked it.

I liked the book but I kind of wish this was Tara's book.

Loved!!!

I started the series a little backwards I guess! This was the 1st I've read & LOVE it! I want to read it again & again!! Long time fan of Lisa's but have been skipping these because the titles threw me off. So Glad I downloaded STS!
