Review: Married by Morning by Lisa Kleypas

54778462From the back of the book:

He is everything she wants to avoid…

For two years, Catherine Marks has been a paid companion to the Hathaway sisters – a pleasant position, with one caveat. Her charges’ older brother, Leo Hathaway, is thoroughly exasperating. Cat can hardly believe that their constant arguing could mask a mutal attraction. But when one quarred ends in a sudden kiss, Cat is shocked at her powerful response – and even more so when Leo proposes a dangerous liaison.

She is not at all what she seems…

Leo must marry and produce an heir within a year to save his family home. Catherin’s respectable demeanor hides a secret that would utterly destroy her. But to Leo, Cat is intriguing and infernally tempting, even to a man resolved never to love again. The danger Cat tried to outrun is about to separate them forever – unless two wary lovers can find a way to banish the shadows and five in to their desires…

I love all of the Hathaways and Leo in particular. His story has intrigued me since the beginning. Of all the Hathaway siblings, Leo has had the most growth and change throughout the series. In the beginning he was broken and hurting due to the loss of his fiance, then thrown into his title he became wild and unmanageable. By the time Married By Morning starts Leo is settling down and has overcome most of his turbulent past. But he definately isn’t looking for love or even a flirtation. Catherine Marks is someone that Leo can’t seem to get around. She doesn’t like him and he doesn’t like her, yet he is repeatedly drawn to her. I loved the way these two fought their attraction to each other and how electric it was when they came together! Marks is the perfect woman for Leo. There are lots of appearances by the other Hathaway family members and Dodger the ferret (who is a major player in Leo and Cat’s story). I can’t wait to read Beatrix’s story next!

the book girl gives MARRIED BY MORNING a 5/5!
