Lisa Kleypas…Back in the Land of Historical Romance

If you thought my four month-ish break from blogging was something…then what do you have to say about Lisa Kleypas‘ FIVE YEAR break from historical romance…what?

Five years!

But what I’ve been hearing and reading of her upcoming novel, Cold-Hearted Rake, seems to have made the wait worth it (though it’s not officially over till October).

A twist of fate . . .

Devon Ravenel, London’s most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl’s three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon’s own.

A clash of wills . . .

Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny-and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:

Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she’s ever known?

I did read somewhere that the heroine’s name was Diana, but my reviewer site (which has yet to let me down) and this blurb is officially calling her Kathleen…but anything could happen till October I guess.

Did I mention that this book releases in October?

    • I tried reading her contemporary romances, but I wasn’t really into them. I kept waiting for her next HR, and next thing I know, 5 years has passed. o.O
