Our current featured book is Lisa Kleypas’s The Devil’s Daughter, “a delightful cross-over between the Wallflower series and the Ravenels. There’s no need to read any of the previous books, but they’re all fun. This one is light, amusing, deliciously sexy, with a young widowed mother trying to break free of her staid and controlling in-laws with the help of her husband’s childhood enemy. The characters are relatable – the bad boy hero is a hard-working manager of his brother’s estate, not an effete lord, and the widow is doing her best to raise her two charming young children. There’s a nice twist when the hero, who believes he’s not worthy of love, avoids there heroine, and she’s the one who deliberately seduces him and wins him. The dialogue around their first kiss is laugh out loud, and the entire book is a treat.” -Guest Review from bestselling local Romance novelist Anne Stuart
