Book review- Seduce me at Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas




Seduce Me at Sunrise is the second book in the Hathways series. It potrays the romance of Winnifred- the frailest of the Hathway sisters who suffers from lung problems and Kev Merripen- a gypsy who was adopted by the Hathway family.

The story begins with Winnifred leaving home and going to France to seek medical help for her problem. Kev has always been in love with Win, but he is afriad of hurting her because he was raised as a fighter in his tribe and is afraid that he still harbours violent tendencies. He thinks their relationship cannot work out. Win loves him and pleads him to admit that he loves her, if he wants to stop her from going to France, but he doesn't. She leaves.

The rest of the story shows how their relationship sparks off again when Win comes back from France. Kev is unable to reject her for long. The book also throws light on Kev's mysterious past. Cam is actually is brother! (Sorry for spoiling the fun but I am sure many of you already suspected it). I was surprised that Kev was the ELDER brother and Cam was the YOUNGER brother. Cam alwasy seemed more reasonable and logical, and I had expected him to be older.

More revealations are in store at the end of the book, too. Reading Seduce me at Sunrise after Mine Till Midnight wasn't a great idea because of how similar they are. Still, Cam's character is much better than Kev's. Kev tries to hard to deny his feelings which got on my nerves after a while.

There is also a villian in this story (not too hard to guess who it is once you start reading the book). Still the book was above average. If I was giving stars, I would give it three.
