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.
Wonderful conclusion to the story started in Cold-Hearted Rake. #romantsy
Loved this historical #romantsy quiet obedient Lady Helen has decided to marry a wealthy department store owner , Mr. Winterborne . He‘s so sexy ! 🔥🔥🔥. I‘m spending my free time reading these great Kindle books. Love 💕 my Paperwhite and HEA endings.
Just started reading this now @Linsy .. it‘s perfect for the next two #challenges because it shaping up to be everything a retelling of the #classic #Beauty and the #Beast storyline should be! ❤️☺️ Helen, the beauty and Rhys, the beast are spot on. I‘m only 29 pages in and I‘m already captivated! #CoolBooks
#Audiobook #Review: Marrying Winterborne by Lisa Kleypas with @HarperCollins. The narrator gave an excellent portrayal of these characters and I absolutely loved Reese Winterborne.

I'd been wanting to read this one for awhile since I've been reading about the Ravenels out of order, and it didn't disappoint. I enjoyed seeing gentle Helen take a stand and find happiness. #romantsy
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 😡
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
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
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
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!
Just got my credits from Barnes & Noble for the Apple ebook settlement. WOW! I feel like I won the book buying lottery! Maybe I can make a little dent on my wishlist. My settlement portion also confirms that I am a bookaholic!
Not gonna lie. This one - and several glasses of wine - is my entire weekend plan.
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.
