I enjoy the animals most, as they make the story entertaining. It also cover the trauma of returning soldiers, and the Crimea War was particularly gruesome. Men were treat as cannon fodder, by inept officers and poor sanitary did the rest. So; yes a letter could be a lifeline, but to return to a world that was so petty, must have been hell. Despite the serious under-story it was entertaining.

this is a sweet story as regards romance novel no electric tension just sweet and accepting it started off very nicely later it stalled a bit with him brooding and her being patient she is surrounded by animals and he by nightmares if that connects nothing else there but ms kleypas always writes well !the only thing that just did not stick with me is the champagne in cold ice bucket just to modern for my taste in victorian countryside but an easy read good but not wow though

Another enjoyable Hathaway romp which completes the series nicely. This particular book has a lot to live up to but Kleypas manages to blend all the ingredients required to serve up a perfectly acceptable finale. Whilst it doesn't quite reach the high standard of a couple of its predecessors, it equally doesn't disappoint and a stalwart fan of Kleypas in this genre will find enough here to be content with.

A great series and a thoroughly entertaining family! I look forward to Ms Kleypas's next endeavour with anticipation. :)!

Beatrix Hathaway has always felt more comfortable outside with the animals than in a ballroom crowded with people. Despite that, she still yearns for the kind of love and passion that will sweep her off her feet yet no man has ever taken her breath away or even seriously courted her.

Captain Christopher Phelan is a dashing, handsome soldier who has plans to marry Beatrix's pretty, flirtatious friend, Prudence, when he returns from fighting in the Crimea. But life on the battlefield has darkened his soul and he fears he is no longer the man he once was. The only light in his life are the regular, witty letters he receives from Pru. So much so that he's beginning to fall in love with his correspondent. So when he returns from the war, determined to claim the woman he loves, he's confused as to why he feels nothing for Pru and so much for Beatrix. But who really is his letter writing love and what will he do when he finds out he's been duped?

This is the last in the Hathaway series of books following Mine Till Midnight, Seduce Me at Sunrise, Tempt Me at Twilight and Married by Morning (Hathaway Series). As with the other Hathaway books, you could easily read this book as a stand alone but you're more likely to understand the characters and the history of the family if you've read the other books before reading this one.

Review taken from my Blog Post (#63) in January 2011, after borrowing the book from the local library:

This is the 5th Book in the Hathaway series, and I found it completely enjoyable. With quite a few heart churning and breath catching moments in it. The story of the youngest Hathaway Sister, Beatrix, a free-spirited girl with a love of natural history and animals. She had a couple of Seasons in London, and whilst men seemed to like her, the unconventional lifestyle of the Hathaway Clan never managed to ensure that a suitable mate would offer for her.

Christopher Phelan once told everyone that she was more suited to the stables than the ton in fact, so how did they end up together?

Christopher planned to marry Beatrix's friend, Prudence when he returned from fighting in the Crimea, and had arranged to write to her via his Sister-in-law, Audrey. However, Prudence a shallow, conceited and self-absorbed lady really couldn't find any need to write back to him. Beatrix was horrified and begged her friend to let her reply on his behalf.

Somewhere along the way those letters turned into love letters, and Beatrix wrote breaking off contact.

Christopher eventually returned a war hero, and determined to claim the girl he had irrevocably fallen in love, but soon realises that the Prudence in the letters is far from the reality of Prudence the girl.

What began as an innocent deception turns into agony and unfulfilled love for them both.

A 4.5 ***** Star read if I could award half stars.

The whole "Hathaways" series has been a delight. The stories are wonderfully romantic and very interesting, but also contain some really funny moments (I have laughed out loud on several occassions which doesn't often happen with romantic fiction!). The way the family interract with each other is lovely and very true to life - they all have distinct, individual personalities with their own quirks (especially Beatrix who I just love!). The side-characters are great too, especially Medusa and Albert in this book - you'll have to read it to find out who they are. I would recommend the whole series - they are well worth a read.
