Seduce Me At Sunrise (The Hathaways, Book 2)

Seduce Me At Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas (2008)

Pages: 360

ISBN: 9780312949815

Description: 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…

Review: This story begins just after the ending of Mine Till Midnight. Win has left for the clinic to make herself better and Kev is utterly devastated to be without her. Time warp forward two years and Win returns healthy (for the most part) and anxious to hear about Kev who was silent during those years. Kev has turned hard without Win, but when he sees her the old feelings come back. Naturally, there is another love interest involved as Win is a beauty. Secrets are finally told and much drama ensues.

Will they - won't they? That sums up the majority of this book. We learn a bit more about the history between Win and Kev and why there are all of those smoldering looks. Kev wants Win but doesn't think the is good enough for her. However, he has issues with anyone else wanting her. We are left to sift through hundreds of pages in order to find out if they will finally get over it and get together. Once nice thing about this book is that we finally learn some long awaited answers to burning questions began in earlier books. I didn't enjoy it as much as Midnight, but I still enjoy this series and can't wait for the third book.

Score: 3.5 out of 5
