Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

My Favorite Historical Romance of the Year (So Far)

Marrying Winterborne - Lisa Kleypas

What a phenomenal story! Marrying Winterborne was a historical romance with a lot of heart, some well done drama, and several exquisitely tender scenes between our hero and heroine that took my breath away.

 

There is just so much to love about this book that it’s difficult to know where to begin. First off, Lisa Kleypas’s writing was spot-on. I mean, I always love her stories but there was such a great flow to this particular one. The descriptions she used in each scene really created a vivid picture for us readers, especially where this was told from a few different POVs. It felt like we got to know each character quite well and could understand exactly where they were coming from.
