Well I passed the halfway mark for #25infive, finished two books including the tagged book, and read a bit more of a third. Calling it a pretty successful readathon! One of these days I will actually make the goal time...

I enjoyed Marrying Winterborne - the Ravenels are fun and it's great to have a light read for a readathon, especially during a busy and stressful time of year.

CoverToCoverGirl Lisa is awesome! Love all her books but I think this particular one is my all time fav. 😊 10mo
Purplerosiepage @CoverToCoverGirl I think Devil in Winter is my favorite... but this was pretty darn good. The moment when Rhys tells Helen he doesn‘t care about who her father was amazing. I can‘t wait for West‘s story! 10mo

#Audiobook #Review: Marrying Winterborne by Lisa Kleypas with @HarperCollins. The narrator gave an excellent portrayal of these characters and I absolutely loved Reese Winterborne.

Not very impressed with this book. I'm not a fan of the "F" word and it wasn't appropriate for the time period of this book.

Any other NY/PA people having issues because of this storm? We've got trees down all over - including one in the neighbor's yard which took down a power line... thankfully I have a fully charged kindle! I just hope the power company gets things fixed before I have to throw out an entire fridge full of food 😡

Bostonmomx2 Ugh. This is the never ending winter isn't? I'm out west but it's been a long one for sure (but that actually makes me happy, I hate summer). Hope you get your power back soon 😊 2y
Johanna414 @Bostonmomx2 you aren't kidding! We've had such bizarre weather this past year- in the fall our tiny creek out back flooded and our whole street got evacuated. First time in 40 years. Now this storm has trees down all over town. Fortunately, the power company got it fixed just in time for me to turn everything off and go to bed! 2y

Well written and with a good flow. I enjoyed the characters and how they interacted. I'm glad that Rhys proved a better man than Helen expected and loved her regardless of the Secret she held. I'm curious to see what will happen in the future of the characters as they were fun and engaging.

??⭐⭐⭐
Much like Cold-hearted Rake, I really struggled with the romance in this one, although I didn't enjoy the story quite as much as CHR. I love a romance where you get to explore the characters falling in love but the characters were essentially in love already, it was about the impending "doom" preventing the wedding. Just not my sort of romance, it lacked the kind of depth I've come to expect from LK. #romansty #osrbc

brownem I hadn't thought about the fact that the H/h were in love at the beginning of this story. Nice to see another point of view. 3y
Deebee @brownem I adore reading the unfolding of a romance and pay particular attention to how an author grows it and builds the emotions. I felt that LK just didn't dig deeply enough into the emotions of either character on this one. Particularly Winterborne. I finished it and didn't feel like I knew him that well - his soul hadn't been bared to me. 3y

Cold-hearted Rake and Winterborne have been spotted with stuff like this, which is just bizarre from such an accomplished and polished author. It feels like these have been earlier works that have been pulled from the bottom drawer and dusted off. Curious to see how Winterborne turns out.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 stars... I loooved this book!! Adore Rhys in every way there is...one of my top 5 H. There is another bit in this story that I wanted to post but I don't want to spoil to much....let's just say it's a letter Rhys writes to Helen. I just melted. I enjoyed this alot more than Cold Hearted Rake only because I didn't like Kathleen much as there were times she grated on my nerves. #osrbc #romansty

monicab50 Just a note that there are so many lol moments in this book! The one liners are excellent. Love Pandora, I'm sooo excited for her story as I've recently noticed that it links with the Wallflower series 💜💜 3y

This is my current favorite romantic historical. Rhys is a gruff businessman who says and does incredibly romantic things for Helen. Helen is a quiet, shy aristocrat who overcomes these traits to grab love with Rhys. #romantsy #romance #keeper

EloisaJames I absolutely loved it too. Lisa is a great friend and she worked like a fiend on the book--I think all her revisions paid off! 3y
MommaBeja I don't know if she made Rhys so lyrical because he was a Welshman or if she made him poetic to offset his gruffness. Either way it was endearing 3y

I will have to say this again and again. Lisa Kleypas knows how to write non-aristocratic characters! Marrying Winterborne did not disappoint! I was initially apprehensive going into this book because of what Rhys did in Cold-Hearted Rake, but he ultimately redeemed himself! Helen also turned out to be quite a strong woman! I love the character transformations here, and of course, the romance! #AvonAddicts #AvonRomance #LisaKleypas

Very enjoyable romance from Lisa Kleypas! A bonus was that she put women in professions that were rare for them to be in for this time period. I loved Dr. Gibson. I hope she shows up in future books!

I feel like this couple stole the show in Cold Hearted Rake only to be eclipsed by other side characters in their own book. Lady Berwick and Pandora's on going face offs as well as a cool female doctor were the most interesting elements to me. High hopes that Devil in Spring (book #3) is great.

Treatyoshelf Ha. So true about them getting eclipsed. I'm hoping West and Lady Doc hit it off down the line. 3y
Otherworld_Library @treatyoself I'm starting to think setting up new couples in another couples book is a mistake. The focus and tension seems to get diluted. 3y
