I sidled up to this one with a bit of caution -- initial reviews were not glowing. Imagine my delight to discover not only is this a great book (Kleypas, duh) -- but it's a new kind of Kleypas novel. In fact, it felt more like a Jennifer Ashley "Mackenzie" novel, without the Scots twist, but with a seriously sexy hero, and a challenging love story.
I love reading reviews on here, and reviewers have saved me from some stinkers, but the initial reviews on this book -- in hindsight -- are perplexing. I'd say if you like either of those authors, give it a try.
Mary Jane Wells was wonderful here, as well. Her voice for Devon was a steamy revelation!
Highly Recommended -- by me!

This was a sweet story. Devin is a jerk with a loser brother, Weston. Devin inherits the Ravenell estate even though he and his loser brother dont want it. The estate, however, saves the loser brother and gives him purpose as well as making Devin see a softer side of life. Kathleen and her three sisters in law are anticipating being abandoned, however the werent, and got much more than they thought. I always enjoy a book where the main couple is working towards a relationship without a bunch of chaos getting them there... this was one of those. There were obviously obstacles, but nothing thst made you feel pain.
I also really like how in this one book, we can so clearly see all the potential upcoming stories. I hope we'll see Westons story as well as the girls' stories. I am actually going right into the next book &quot;Marrying Winterbourne&quot; which is something I very very rarely do.
It always takes a bit to get used to the narrator, no matter if theyre new or familiar. MJW was new to me and her reading style even newer. She is the first narrator that I can recall actually 'acted' as well. She would sigh when the character sighed, or whine, or cry or be angry... It took a little over halfway for me not to cringe. She obviously put in a lot of effort, and once I got used to it, I quite liked it. She did a great job on the various voices and keeping track to not mix them up. (I would love to know how the narrators do that so well!)
