Love in the Afternoon continues the Hallaways series by Victorian romance author Lisa Kleypas. As a lover of animals and nature, Beatrix Hathaway has always been more comfortable outdoors than in the ballroom. Even though she participated in the London season in the past, the classic beauty and free-spirited Beatrix has never been swept away or seriously courted...and she has resigned herself to the fate of never finding love. Has the time come for the most unconventional of the Hathaway sisters to settle for an ordinary man—just to avoid spinsterhood? Captain Christopher Phelan is a handsome, daring soldier who plans to marry Beatrix's friend, the vivacious flirt Prudence Mercer, when he returns from fighting abroad. But, as he explains in his letters to Pru, life on the battlefield has darkened his soul—and it's becoming clear that Christopher won't come back as the same man. When Beatrix learns of Pru's disappointment, she decides to help by concocting Pru's letters to Christopher for her. Soon the correspondence between Beatrix and Christopher develops into something fulfilling and deep...and when Christopher comes home, he's determined to claim the woman he loves. What began as Beatrix's innocent deception has resulted in the agony of unfulfilled love—and a passion that can't be denied...

Married by Morning continues Lisa Kleypas's Hathaways beloved series set in Victorian London. 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 mutual attraction. But when one quarrel ends in a sudden kiss, Cat is shocked at her powerful response—and even more so when Leo proposes a dangerous liaison. Leo must marry and produce an heir within a year to save his family home. Catherine'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 give in to their desires...

A chick lit classic first published in 1985, The Secret Life of Eva Hathaway returns, hilarious and wicked as ever, for a new generation of fans. "I love my husband. The man married me when he didn't even have to. Then he set me up in a huge house to domesticate the kinks out of my system while he ran his computer company." So begins the saga of Eva Hathaway, the randy heroine who leaves a raft of heartbroken suitors when she elopes with entrepreneur Martin Weaver and moves from New York to Boston. Martin's frequent road trips provide Eva with the calm necessary to pursue her stellar career as Fanny May Tingle, award winning composer of hymns. Despite the lingering disapproval of her blueblood mother-in-law Ruth, who would love a grandchild, Eva's marriage to Martin succeeds for four placid years. She assuages her homesickness for Manhattan with visits to Richard Weintraub, who designs artwork for her hymns, and Lionel Boyd, a high school confidante now a gay Broadway costume designer. As Martin's absences become prolonged and a void grows inside, Eva manages to stay on the straight and narrow by composing nonstop, working out, and parrying the ravings of her alcoholic mother Chuck. Eva's formula seems to work until, one snowy afternoon, she goes to the Y for a course in self-defense. Instructor Paul Fox, a moonlighting tenor, at once identifies his new pupil as half insane, half genius, and 200% nymphomaniac. After several false starts that would make The Taming of the Shrew look like a christening, Fox and Eva connect...to put it mildly. Conscience, lust, guilt, and that odd duck, joy, clash in a bawdy and hilarious comedy, a moving love story, and a social satire that continues to reverberate with today's reader.
