Lisa Kleypas week

Lisa Kleypas Week!

We will start this post by saying: Lisa Kleypas is one of the best romance novels writers out there and one of our favourites. Her stories are well-written and well-researched but above all, her stories have heart. It is hard to find a romance reader who does not include at least one Lisa Kleypas’ book in their top 10 or one of her heroes as their pick for a desert island escapade. She has written over 25 historical novels and recently started, very successfully, to write contemporaries. She has two new books coming out in September and early October and we were able to get our greedy hands on Advanced Reading Copies and when the opportunity to interview Lisa Kleypas presented itself we just couldn’t pass up the chance to dedicate a whole week to this amazing writer and have another one of our infamous Appreciation Weeks.

We hereby roll out the red carpet and declare opened the Lisa Kleypas Week (A.K.A. It’s a Lisa Kleypas Madness!!!).

This is what you can expect:

Monday – Back to the Past:

We go back in time and read one of the most loved romance novels of all time. It is one of Ana’s Favourites and she dared Thea, the non-romance reader of the duo, to read it – and she loved it! She will tell all in her review of …Dreaming of You.

Tuesday – Contemporary Day

First up is our dare review for September (where we dare another blogger to read a book our of her/his comfort zone). CJ from The Thrillionth Page will be reading and reviewing Sugar Daddy

Then Ana, will post her review of Blue-Eyed Devil – one of her first contemporary romance reads and one that will make her top 10 of 2008.

Wednesday – Kev and Win day!

Ana will do an early review of the eagerly awaited book 2 of the Hathaway Sisters series, Seduce me at Sunrise (release date 30th). Will Kev and Win’s story live up to the expectations created when they stole the show in Mine Till Midnight?

Thursday – A Wallflower Party

Next up is a special post by both Ana and Thea chatting about the best of the Wallflowers’ series in preparation for yet another Powerpuff Girls’ early review with KatieBabs – this time, of A Wallflower Christmas, the new book in the Wallflower series

Friday – Interview and Giveway.

And to wrap things up, we will publish an exclusive interview with the one and only Lisa Kleypas! We will be talking about her new series, old favourites, her writing process, her decision to write contemporaries and of course, her answer to the one question that it’s in everybody’s minds: If she were to pick one hero, which one would she pick – Derek Craven or Sebastian St. Vincent? Come back next Friday to find out! (And for a chance to win a copy of Seduce me at Sunrise.)

And to finish: while searching the net to find the covers for this post, we came across….

The Cover of her next Contemporary! And with that we bid you adieu…..until tomorrow!

    Love Kleypas, but had a weird reaction to the cover of Smooth Talking Stranger. I saw the picture before the words:

    Me: “Huh, that’s an awkwardly photographed love scene – waitOH GOD HE’S HOLDING A BABY.”

    Lillian Bowman is the best heroine of the wallflowers. I love the scene where they play baseball in their knickers.
