Three word describe Nick Gentry very well. Dangerous. Intense. Haunted. Lisa Kleypas manages to bring all of this out of the page and made me fall in love with Nick right along side Lottie, the heroine of this book.

It has been a while since I have read a Lisa Kleypas novel and I can’t believe I had forgotten the experience of failing head long in to the book and being so involved with all the characters, making me feel their trials and tribulations, happiness and elation right along with them. I thought this book was particularly good, Nick is a fantastic character, a reformed villain with a tortured past living recklessly and dangerously with nothing to lose. Until Lottie comes along. Lottie was strong willed and brave and I liked her a lot, although her character isn’t as memorable as Nick’s I thought they made a fantastic couple, they both got different kinds of security from the relationship and they had chemistry. They had a LOT of chemistry the love scenes between them were hot and steamy and may have left me panting a little!

Although this book had a plot involving Lottie and Nick’s past this mainly focused on the relationship between Nick and Lottie, so if you are looking for a fast paced book this is not it. But if you want a sweet but slightly erotic book about two people falling in love this is definitely the one for you!

I am a little sad this series is ended, although the first book Someone to Watch Over Me isn’t a favourite of mine Lady Sophia’s Lover was excellent and in fact my favourite in the series, Sir Ross is delicious, and it ends on a high note with this book. So if you haven’t read this series yet I highly recommend you give it a go!

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
