This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.
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...in Tempt Me at Twilight, the third book in Lisa Kleypas's Victorian romance series.
I never submit reviews beyond assigning a star value, but I loved this book. The plot was new, refreshing- and the characters (Harry/Michael/Leo) had so many more layers in this book than previous (with the exception of Cam IMHO). I’ve enjoyed each of the previous books immensely- but something about this one! It has the humor- actual laugh out loud moments-, along with the drama and happy endings... but maybe it’s my personal preference for anti-heroes who evolve into heroes, I adored Harry! Cam is the wonderful light and Harry is the decadent dark- I am looking forward to Leo’s story next!
Only complaint... I guess? Poppy is a little dull, but is lovely nonetheless. 5⭐️
Disappointed in the characters
I love this series but this book was disappointing. I could never get over Harry’s meddling and Poppy’s lack of empathy for Michael.
Amazing author, amazing stories
I just discovered Lisa Kleypas. She is one of the most gifted romance novelists I have ever had the plv, the amount of of history and customs of the period is nothing short of astonishing. Most importantly, for those of us whose guilty pleasure is the reading of romance, she spins the loveliest takes. One you read one you must read them all.
