Aline and McKenna have grown up together, even though Aline's status as an Earl's daughter and McKenna's position as a stable boy should keep them apart. Never has Aline thought of loving anyone else. But when their romance is discovered by Aline's father, Aline must ensure that McKenna never returns to save his own life. Twelve years later, McKenna returns to Aline's estate a much changed man. Aline has secrets of her own that she never wants McKenna to discover but the strong pull of the bond between them is something no one can deny.

My first historical romance by Lisa Kleypas, I definitely enjoyed it. The characters are pretty well drawn and the romance plot (and sub-plot) are compelling. My only complaint is that the book just squeaked past on passing the Bechdel test. Usually romance novels are pretty good about having at least a couple paragraphs where two female characters discuss something other than the romantic lead but I think this book had all of two sentences. That aside, the book is well written and will satisfy fans of the genre. ( )

Lady Aline Marsdenová měla jako dcerka ze šlechtické rodiny jediný úkol, uzavřít výhodný sňatek z mužem z nejvyšší společenské vrstvy. Navzdory urozenému původu však dala svou nevinnost otcovu podkonímu Johnu McKennovi. Takovýto románek je ovšem v očích tradiční šlechty něčím neprominutelným. Mladí milenci jsou vystaveni mocnému hněvu Alinina otce, který hodlá podkonímu zničit život. Nakonec je John vykázán z panství a Aline je odpuštěno. ( )

Usualmente , leo estas novelas cuando tuve un día pesado , cuando estoy demasiado cansada para concentrarme en algo complejo o simplemente cuando quiero algo entretenido y nada de la angustia o la violencia que suelo leer .

Leo un romance y me quedo tranquila porque las historias son super predecibles y nada va a sorprenderme . Lo que busco es dormirme sin problemas . Soy una mina que duerme muy poco , me cuesta alcanzar el sueño aunque esté exhausta (y si lo logro duermo cinco horas o seis ), así que siempre cuando me acuesto me pongo a leer cosas Light para intentar no desvelarme .

En este caso , "Again the magic" no logró lo que yo esperaba . Me fue tan fastidiosa la lectura que no pude pegar un ojo .

A ver, yo me doy cuenta de que casi todos los romances históricos de Lisa Kleypas son una versión romantizada de Cumbres Borrascosas : todos sus protagonistas son Heathcliff .... pero las chicas carecen de la locura de Cathy y estas dos bobotas presentadas acá están más lejos que nunca de llegarle a los talones a la egoista Earnshaw . Las protagonistas son tan pero TAN Patéticas que pensé que la cabeza me iba a explotar de tanta ridiculez junta -

No me pareció nada romántico que la fulana aspirante a Catherine esperara durante años como una idiota a que volviera su Heathcliff . AÑOS quieta en su casa esperando y guardando su santidad a que llegara quien la había abandonado . Había muchas escenas que más que dulces eran irritantes y la dignidad de las dos hermanas se arrastraba por el piso .

Irritante novela , irritante y patética . Para dormirme, me puse a releer "Devil in winter" , que SI es entretenida y cuya heroína tiene un poco más de dignidad que estas paspadas . ( )

A stable boy wasn’t supposed to speak to an earl’s daughter, much less climb up to her bedroom window.

Book description
She gave him her innocence...
Lady Aline Marsden was brought up for one reason: to make an advantageous marriage to a member of her own class. Instead, she willingly gave her innocence to John McKenna, a servant on her father's estate. Their passionate transgression was unforgivable -- John was sent away, and Aline was left to live in the countryside... an exile from London society

... and he took her love.
Now McKenna has made his fortune, and he has returned -- more boldly handsome and more mesmerizing than before. His ruthless plan is to take revenge on the woman who shattered his dreams of love. But the magic between them burns as bright as ever. And now he must decide whether to let vengeance take its toll... or risk everything for his first, and only, love.
