Booklist Reviews 2008 March #2

Hardy Cates, introduced in Kleypas' Sugar Daddy (2007), kisses Haven Travis in the dark at her brother's wedding. She thinks she is kissing Nick Tanner, who she truly loves, and nothing—not even a sexy blue-eyed devil whose soul-searing kiss Haven can't forget—is going to stop her from marrying Nick. Two years later in Houston, a recently divorced Haven runs into Hardy again. The last thing Haven wants is to be involved, but Hardy is determined to prove that he truly is the only man for her. Kleypas' second poignant, passionate, and perfectly written contemporary romance is richly emotional and sinfully sexy. Copyright 2008 Booklist Reviews.

Hardy Cates is back, ready to sweep bruised but rebellious heiress Haven Travis off her feet. With a one-day laydown on March 25; national tour. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

PW Reviews 2008 January #4

Scenes of domestic abuse and the journey to recovery make Kleypas's modern romance anything but fluff. A Wellesley grad and daughter of a Houston energy baron, Haven Travis is an unlikely romantic heroine until her brief but ardent encounter with a man who turns out to be Hardy Cates, the East Texas roughneck from Sugar Daddy who worked his way up from poverty and then outmaneuvered the Travis clan in a business deal. Haven's engaged to Nick Tanner—a man her dad thinks is unfit for her—and though she and Hardy have a charged interaction, she elopes with Nick, and her father cuts her off. Nick turns out to be a bad guy, and a beaten and bruised Haven returns to Houston, where Hardy's still at odds with her family. Their passion proves as fervent as ever, but demons from Haven's recent past—as well as strife with her family and troubles at work and in bed—stand in the way. Kleypas isn't a literary stylist, but she delivers a page-turning, formula-breaking romance that takes on social issues and escalates passion to new heights. (Mar.)
