Cold-Hearted Rake: The Ravenels, Book 1 Kindle Edition
Mass Market Paperback
Preloaded Digital Audio Player, Unabridged, Import
Lisa Kleypas is back with a stunning new historical romance!
Readers have long waited for the return of New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas to historical romance—and now she's back with her most breathtaking yet.
A twist of fate . . .
Devon Ravenel, London's most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl's three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon's own.
A clash of wills . . .
Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:
Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known?

I simply cannot wait to see where Kleypas goes with the next three books. I also need her to write them faster. SERIOUSLY FASTER. I'd recommend this book for anyone who likes their happily ever afters to involve corsets, their sexual tension to involve witty banter, and their books to end with the promise of more. ― Romance and Smut --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Having said that, I enjoyed the book and have already preordered the next one - I think shades of Winnifred Hathaway meets Harry Rutledge, perhaps, characters from two different books in the Hathaway series.
It is so difficult for an author's new book NOT to be compared with earlier books, especially in a series. 'Devil in Winter' is a great favourite of mine, so everything else I read by Kleypas is inevitably judged by that standard, which isn't really fair to the author, whose other books and series are very very good indeed. Read, enjoy and look forward to more by this excellent writer
