Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas

then came you,

No matter that outrageous and lovely Lily Lawson has scandalized her family to the point of estrangement, she’s decided to prevent her younger sister Penelope, from making the tragic mistake of marrying Alex Raiford, Earl of Wolverton when she loves someone else and well, everyone knows an Earl needs a wife and any will do plus she’s heard unsavory things about Alex.

Alex has determined his fianc√© wouldn’t be daring and he’d stand firm when she risked herself and most of all he wouldn’t love her. He’d settle for a timid, obedient and pretty woman to wife, someone suitable and Penny would never be demanding. Putting her plan in play, Lily arranges a glimpse of Alex and is shocked to discover she’d seen him at the water party when he looked at her with distain!

Lily and Alex both attract and repel each other. Alex was a man who loved too much and Lily was a woman who loved too little. They’re both attracted to and repelled by each other. The pair’s journey to love-land takes them through secrets, unsuitability issues, an attraction neither is willing to admit and a battle of wills neither is willing to concede.

The secondary characters added a different type of drama as they supported the leads and made the read more interesting. I confess, I had doubts this read would be to my taste at the outset, but in Kleypas fashion, it came through.
