TITLE: Tempt Me at Twilight
AUTHOR: Lisa Kleypas
SERIES: Hathaways, Book 3
SETTING: Victorian, London and Hampshire
THEMES/TROPES: “heartless” hero, entrepreneur/self-made man, coerced marriage

OVERVIEW:
Poppy Hathaway, fourth child of an unconventional family, just wants a normal, quiet life. The dream seems within reach as her relationship with a viscount’s son grows, but there are a few problems. First, his father doesn’t approve. Second, the mysteriously hotelier, Harry Rutledge, has decided that he wants Poppy for himself. And Harry Rutledge gets what he wants.

With a sharp mind, an isolated childhood, and a ruthless drive, Harry is not well-equipped to provide Poppy with the sweet affection and close companionship she’s always desired, but he’s not about to give up on what he wants. While Harry learns to navigate Poppy’s strong will and her zany, protective family, Poppy learns to see beneath the many masks he wears.

PROS:
Harry is probably my favorite thing about this book. Not only does he fall into the category of heartless, careless, need-to-be-reformed heroes that I love, but he’s also subtly developed. Early in the story, there are plenty of moments where he’s being an outright villain, and then there’s just a hint of proper feeling in him. Poppy is also a delightful character; she’s sweet, loving, reasonable, and patient without being weak. She pairs perfectly with Harry because she’s so willing to love and to teach him to love, and she has the will to show him he can’t just have his way all the time.

The progression of sex in their relationship is also written well to reflect where they’re at emotionally, particularly in terms of trust. And even when the scene ends in frustration, there’s no lack of sexiness. At the same time, there were moments where the question of consent made me a little uncomfortable, but it makes sense for the characters and time period.

The supporting cast is also top-notch. The hotel staff are a lot of fun, with plenty of hilarious observations about Harry and his marriage. Poppy’s family are even better (as one might expect since they’re the main characters of the series’ other books). Poppy’s brother, Leo, is particularly hilarious (and lovable) in this book, which made me really glad that I wasn’t reading these books when they originally came out because I’m so happy to move on to Leo’s story right away.

CONS:
I can’t think of much I disliked about this book, and those are only slight.

Harry’s character development feels a bit quick, but I put that down to the nature of the genre, where most love stories go from zero to sixty in a matter of weeks.

The plot could have had a little more interest, but it was solid. I was getting close to the end of the book, thinking that the plot was lacking a little when I reached another bit of plot intrigue that finishes the story off well. Having a more intense heroine up against Harry could have created more drama and intrigue, but the story wouldn’t have been as sweet or believable.

RATINGS:
Writing: 5/5 Always great from Lisa Kleypas.
Characters: 5/5 Well-rounded and well-developed.
Plot: 4/5 Solid, but not as dramatic as expected.
Setting: 5/5 Kleypas writes in great historical detail.
Romance: 5/5 A sweet redemption story.
Sexiness: 4/5 Matches emotional story well.
Humor: 5/5 Omnipresent humor, especially when Leo comes in.
Average: 4.71 Well-Written Characters, Sweet Romance

OTHER INFO: This is the third book in Lisa Kleypas’ Hathaway series, which stars one of the five Hathaway siblings in each book. The preceding two books are the stories of Poppy’s older sisters, Amelia and Win, and their husbands, Cam and Merripen, all of whom we see in this book. Cam appears previously in Kleypas’ Wallflowers series, and the first book in the series sees quite a bit of some of the leads from the Wallflowers (though none of them appear in this book). This story includes a lot of setup for the following book in the series, which stars Leo and the Hathaway governess, Catherine Marks.

Tempt Me at Twilight is the third book in The Hathaways Series. The series features the lives and trials of the Hathaway family. Each book can be read as a stand-alone. Set in 1852 in London, Tempt Me at Twilight is the love story of Poppy Hathaway and the mysterious Harry Rutledge.

Poppy has been a loyal sister to her family. Working hard to be a lady, she has been secretly courting an Englishman in hopes that his family will be willing to accept her and he can take her as his wife. When Poppy accidentally meets Harry Rutledge, the owner of the hotel her family is staying in, Harry sets his sights on Poppy. In order to win her over, he will do whatever it takes to make her his. As Poppy is placed in an impossible position, she knows her only choice is to accept Harry's proposal and leave her love behind. Harry is an impossible man who has always been able to solve any problem. When the problem he needs to solve is winning over his wife, the predicament proves to be more than he could have ever imagined.

Told in dual POV, Tempt Me at Twilight is a romantic tale set back in time where reputation is everything. The plot is complex as Poppy must learn what it means to be a wife to a man who has never experienced love. I adored her spunk and tenacity throughout each and every moment. Poppy and Harry are stunning together and the dynamics between the push and pull they both experienced was intense and quite enjoyable. The relationships between the Hathaway family is truly remarkable as they love and protect each other fiercely. I was so taken by all of the characters, I decided that I must invest more time in this world immediately. The picturesque setting is described in such detail that I felt as if I had been transported back in time. One might assume that passion did not exist back in those times and yet, Harry and Poppy, I feared, would set my Kindle on fire! Lisa Kleypas has created a beautiful world with unforgettable characters.

Overall, I never imagined myself to become a fan of Historical Romance and yet Lisa Kleypas has made me a believer! I am so thankful to my friend SueBee who introduced me to Harry and Poppy. I look forward to reading all of the Hathaway Series. A trip back in time has never been more sexy and sweet!

Poppy Hathaway thinks that she wants to live an ordinary life, removed from the eccentricities her family is known for. With her third London season drawing to a close she thinks that she may finally be getting her wish, until her sister's pet ferret steals a love letter and gets loose in the Rutledge Hotel. In her effort to capture the ferret and retrieve her letter, Poppy meets the reclusive owner of the hotel, Mr. Rutledge. I really liked this story. Poppy and Harry aren't a conventional couple, although their circumstances were probably
more common at the time . Of all the supporting characters, I believe that I liked the hotel staff the best. Their quiet caring for Harry, even when they knew that he would be angry if he knew was priceless.

I've read many of Lisa Kleypas novels, but this has to be the best one!! It's funny and poignant, with much depth to the characters. And what characters there are in this book, each with his or her own oddities. I love the Hathaway family, they're so quirky and lovable, but especially in this book. The dialogue is wonderfully alive between the sisters and Harry and Poppy as well. So many wonderful quotes from this one that i needed to read a second time, just to savor them. Along with this wonderful writing is a hysterically funny exchange between the hotel staff about whether the two newlyweds had 'done the deed' (using vegetable names instead of proper names for the various body parts). I highly recommend this book.
