Format: Mass Market Paperback
What a brilliant book! This is the first book that I've read of hers and I will hunt the earth to find all of Ms Kleypas' books. The story is brilliant from page 1; hot romance, a true hero and a heroin with very human qualities. The story of McKenna and Aline is very believable and shows a lot of depth of character. The second love story between Livia and Shaw is also heartwarming and adds to the story line in my opinion. This book brought a lump to my throat at times (quite rare with most romance novels)and truly just wants to make me read more and more. The fact that Aline has her own human deficiencies (and not some skeleton in the closet but a true imperfection) makes her rejection of McKenna very understandable (after all, there is nothing more difficult for a true beauty than to lose one's beauty). McKenna's plight, his struggle to rise above his working class background is also very realistic. All in all a truly excellent book - one that every lover of a great romance tale should not miss!

McKenna and Aline grew up together. He is a stableboy, she is the daughter of an earl. They have been best friends since Aline was 8 and the housekeeper introduced the lonely little Lady to the lost little boy. As they grew older, their friendship gradually changed to something more, something deeper... The love they share is so deep and profound that when Aline's father, the earl, discovers his daughter is having a "sordid affair" with a lowly stableboy and threatens to destroy him completely, she does the only thing she can think of to help him. She sends him away.
Years later, McKenna is no longer a simple stableboy. In America he has made something of himself and is now determined to make Aline pay for what she did 12 years before. He hates her with a passion that equals the love he used to feel for her. Or so he thinks. Because the moment they meet, the pull between them is as intense as it was before and they are both breaking apart inside, trying to regain equilibrium without the other one noticing.
I finished reading Again the magic this morning at around 2.30 am and I've been tossing and turning all night. I feel like crying. I HAVE been crying. There's this huge lump in my throat that doesn't seem to want to go away any time soon. My heart was breaking again and again every couple of pages and I don't think I'll recover for a long time to come.
When I got up this morning, the first thing I did was clutch this book to my heart, scowl at everyone and start reading again from the beginning.
This is an intense read that will tear you apart if you let it. PLEASE let it!! Books like these, that grip you by the throat and don't let go, don't come around that often. Emotions are broiling and there is so much love it will make you wish you were loved like that! Try it, you will put Lisa Kleypas on your auto-buy list (if you haven't already)!

This was my first Lisa Kleypas book, and I have just ordered another set after reading this.
This book was just amazing. I could not put the book down once I started, but obv due to work I had to and all I could think about was how much I wanted to finish this book off.
McKenna was just an amazing character, at times I couldn't believe he was being so cruel towards Aline but in a way it was almost understandable.
Aline was also a terrific character, I understood why she felt she couldn't tell him her secret but towards the end your thinking "OMG just tell him!"
I also felt the story between Gideon Shaw and Livia was very good, both of the characters were well written and very likable and you end up wanting the best outcome for both of them.

Lisa Kleypas is a terrific writer and I cannot wait until Amazon deliver the next set of her books to me, I wish I could rate this book more than 5 stars. If you love these kind of books, definately buy this. This is one that will remain on my bookcase to read again.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Wow, what a wonderful writer and what a great story. I loved it. I am not going to give a review, so many have done a great job, but I will give my thoughts on it.

I loved John Mckenna, for me he was almost right up there with Derek Craven.
From stable boy to one of the richest men in NY. JM came back with every intention of revenge against the woman who spurned him, or so he thought, but he loved her too much to go through with it.
In the begining, you feel the heroines loneliness, and the vacuum that she lives in to numb her devastating loss. Then she meets Mckenna again, after 12yrs, and the shell cracks. She tells her best friend, Adam, she doesn't know if she'd survive this time after Mckenna leaves.
But later on you tend to feel a deeper empathy for the hero, especially at the end, when he's in so much pain, after he humbles himself for the woman he loves,
only to get shot down, once again.
Sigh, that was bad.

When Mckenna realises he's lost Aline, who spurns him once again. He cannot bear the pain. He seeks out, Mrs Faircloth, the housekeeper, (the only mother he's known, from the time he was a little orphan boy.)He just stand there staring at Mrs Faircloth,devastated, knowing he had no where else to go. She opens her arms to him and he quietly weeps on her shoulders.
Oh god, that was heart-wrenching. You have to have read the story to know what I'm talking about!
I wanted to yell at Aline. What was wrong with that woman?!
Really, this man loved her beyond forever and she couldn't tell him the truth about her 'illness/accident' It had to take her long suffering brother, Marcus, to show her the ways of her stupidity!
