NEW REVIEW: Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas


OUR REVIEW

Devil in Disguise
 is the first novel I've ever read by Lisa Kleypas and zomg! why haven't I read her before? I absolutely loved the characters in this novel and can only assume that many of the secondary characters have had their own novels.


Merritt, our heroine, is such a strong and progressive character who comes from a strong and progressive family. She's loved and supported in all of her 'unconventional' pursuits and the community at large seems to have nothing but respect for her. There are so many things to adore about her, but I think that I really loved how capable and calm she was in every situation that seemed to cross her path. She's astute, patient, kind, and wonderfully stubborn and therefore makes the perfect match for Keir. 


Keir, our lovably gruff Scotsman, is our hero and he's also easy to love. He's grumbly and surprisingly traditional even though he's open and accepting. His inability to resist Merritt is fun and his eventual capitulation is everything. 


Their love story was very easy to get caught up in and the dialogue, comedic banter, and, well, everything, made this novel hard to put down. I really can't wait to read more of Kleypas's backlist; I have no doubt I'll enjoy reading more of these characters.

SYNOPSIS:

New York Times bestseller Lisa Kleypas returns with an enthralling and steamy romance between a Scot with a mysterious past and strong-willed lady looking for adventure—and love. 

“The devil never tries to make people do the wrong thing by scaring them. He does it by tempting them.”

Lady Merritt Sterling, a strong-willed beauty who runs a shipping company, knows London society is dying to catch her in a scandal. So far, she’s been too smart to provide them with one. But then she meets Keir MacRae, a rough-and-rugged Scottish whisky distiller, and all her sensible plans vanish like smoke. They couldn’t be more different, but their attraction is powerful, raw and irresistible.

From the moment Keir MacRae arrives in London, he has two goals. One: don’t fall in love with the dazzling Lady Merritt Sterling. Two: avoid being killed.

So far, neither of those is going well.

Keir doesn’t know why someone wants him dead until fate reveals the secret of his mysterious past. His world is thrown into upheaval, and the only one he trusts is Merritt.

Their passion blazes with an intensity Merritt has never known before, making her long for the one thing she can’t have from Keir MacRae: forever. As danger draws closer, she’ll do whatever it takes to save the man she loves . . . even knowing he might be the devil in disguise.
