I loved this book and just spent the whole of my day off reading it when I had a million other things to do. I really have not much enjoyed the first two books in this series but with this one I think Lisa Kleypas is right back on top form. Harry Rutledge is a gorgeous hero. Apparently ruthless and determined to get his own way but with such a damaged past which becomes clearer as you read that he is also desperately vulnerable - for me a fatal combination. Poppy is also charming and she is just perfect for him - her and her family are just what he needs. I love a romance where the couple get married early on and you see them forced into intimacy, getting to know each other and falling in love and that is what you get with this book. I enjoyed the Hathaway family much more in this book than in the others and their part in the story was well done and didn't feel in any way gratuitous. I can't wait for Leo's story now. He became much more interesting during this book as well when previously I had thought him rather weak and spoilt. The romance in this book is slightly darker and less straightforward than in the previous two Hathaway books but it makes for more emotional intensity and drama and a more satisfactory outcome. Loved it.

Mine Till Midnight (Hathaways 1), the first book in this series, introduced the reader to the Hathaway family: sisters Amelia, Win, Poppy, Beatrix and brother Leo and gave us the love story of Amelia and Cam Rohan. The second book in the series, Seduce Me at Sunrise (Hathaways 2) delivered the second instalment of love, this time for Win and Merripen. Mine Till Midnight did a lot of scene setting for the subsequent books and whilst you don't necessarily have to have read it, it does give you insight into the Hathaway family's current place in Society and their very close and loving bond - made stronger by the fact that both Cam and Merry are of Romany birth and 'family' is all to them, too.

This book is the continuation of the Hathaway family's matrimonial adventures. This time it's Poppy's turn. Poppy is the bookish one. A little more pragmatic than the rest, but as we start reading the book she's madly in love and awaiting a declaration from a young aristocrat, Michael Bayning, who has declared, in private, his undying love for her. Her family are delighted for her and want the match to go ahead because it will make her happy. But, while the family reside for the Season at the Rutledge Hotel in London Poppy encounters Harry Rutledge, the mysterious owner of the hotel and he immediately determines to make her his own. His method is to destroy Bayning's chances by having Bayning's father declare Poppy beneath his son's station and threatening to disown him if he marries her.

I looked forward to this after loving books 1 and 2 but i have to admit i was disappointed.I think it was because i had got used to the two gypsy types and to go back to having a rich city man was a bit of a let down! the first two had a unique aspect with the romany traditions and kev and cam's invlovement. This one seemed a little dull.
Now i hate to say that on a lisa kleypas book review because i love all her historicals but i felt this book lacked something. I never really got to know Poppy in the other books and i feel the other characters are so great that she being 'normal' meant she got pushed aside somewhat.
The prompt start to their relationship took me by surprise and i disliked the hero on occasion, though you do start to warm to him if you read on. I felt a little sorry for Poppy at times!
However some parts measure up to the other books and i love the scenes with the animals and when the hathaways are all together, including Leo! The book drops hints about future stories making you want to read on and on. I admit i was left wanting book 4 immediately so something was okay!
But on the whole when reviewing this not much came back to mind and that is a first for a Kleypas novel. Usually i remember most of the book but certain things arent being recalled as well. Anyway, as a fan of the series, it will be kept on my bookshelf and i will continue to buy her novels as even my least favourites of hers are better than most!

Best Hathaway book from the one family member I always saw as completely unnecessary. It seemed that each Hathaway had an important role - Amelia the leader, Leo the lovable sexy wastrel, Win the beauty and Bea the baby of the group. Poppy seemed to be the Kitty Bennett - really, what's the POINT of her?

Lisa Kleypas just near made her my favourite, and Leo was a given anyway. Since his book's not out till next year, let's just go ahead and say this has been my favourite one yet.

Poppy is brilliant - her inner voice is fun without being annoying, and she has the guts to follow up on things she says. There's no bluffing, and she is perfectly able to live with rejecting Harry despite loving him - I didn't realise what a breath of fresh air this would be after the desperate passion of Win and Merripen's book, but it really does work. Her loyalty to Bayning is quite speaking of her tenacity - she doesn't just throw aside previous feelings because the hero crooks his finger. She's wonderful, what a sense of purpose this girl has, I adored her.

I often find the liveliness of one the main characters in a romance novel overshadows the other, even in a Kleypas sometimes, either the hero is one note and too perfect, or the heroine is bland and archetypical (read: spunky! Ugh!). I LOVED Harry, and Harry and Poppy together are gorgeous. While his appearance is quite Kleypas (tall, dark haired and green eyes), he possesses the ruthlessness of Prince Nicholas and the entrepreneurial energy of Jack Devlin but the anguish of his own inner dialogue shows how much he is preoccupied with his love for Poppy which gives him a humanity Nicholas seemed like he lacked.
