Because the Dream...

Young, high-spirited Lady Madeline Matthews is expected to wed an aging, lecherous lord. But she would rather shame herself in the eyes of society than sacrifice her freedom, and resolves to render herself unmarriageable by indulging in a torrid affair with Britain's most acclaimed actor and notorious womanizer, Logan Scott.

Because the Heart...

He is legend in the footlights and in the bedchamber. But when the curtain falls, Logan is an intensely private, guarded man still tormented by past betrayals that cut deep into his pride and his heart. Now a forward little minx who seems completely out of place in the bright, sophisticated world of the London stage is disrupting his orderly existence with her constant presence, her unspoiled beauty and vibrant charm. And what begins with an onstage kiss threatens to blossom into something more rapturous and real. But first Logan and Madeline both must drop the masks they hide behind...and reveal their true selves in the golden glorious light of love.

After reading the first one in this series, I hoped I would like this one better and fortunately I did, although it still wasn't up to LK's usual standard, IMO. I was intrigued by Logan in the 1st book, but he didn't entirely live up to it in this book. Nice read, but nothing special.

I really liked this book even though the hero was a bit of a jerk most of the time! ( )

We finally get Logan Scott’s story and it is all that I could hope for and more. The heroes that tell one and all that they will never marry are the ones that seem to fall the hardest. I was a little disappointed that this had a “big misunderstanding” plot. I am not fond of that type of story line. Logan finds his match in Madeline Matthews a/k/a Madeline Ridley. He tries so hard to ignore how she makes him feel. He fights for all he is worth to keep his nice quiet life that has few emotions attached to it. Logan is in for some shocks though and not just from loving head over heels in love with Madeline. There are times that I feel sorry for him and others that I would like to take him out and spank him. He can be so stubborn and hard headed. For all the dispassionate man that he lets the public see Logan is a caring and compassionate man with those that are truly friends. I love how he enacts with Julia and Andrew and Madeline. He is good to his servants and cares very much for his acting company. I loved how he handled Madeline’s parents and her jealous older sister. Logan comes around in the end and turns into a loving husband.

Madeline is a strong willed and stubborn young woman that is determined to find a way to make her undesirable to the man that he parents are forcing her to marry. She doesn't plan on falling in love with Logan but she is very attracted to him. Madeline does everything in her power to convince Logan to seduce her. Madeline, of course, is more than a willful young lady. She is caring compassionate and hard working. She is one of those people that draw others to her. She makes people feel at ease around her. Madeline is also very forgiving and more than a little innocence. She has a rough road in the beginning of her marriage to Logan but she is patient and caring. It takes a threat of leaving to finally bring Logan around but he knows that he can’t lose her so he falls in line.

There are a lot of things happening in this story and I am surprised that Logan does as well with all the shocks that he receives as he does. This story introduces Lord Andrew Drake. He appears in a novella “I Will” which is part of an anthology titled WISH LIST. We also get to see Julia and Damon and their two children. As always Ms. Kelypas writes a wonderful story that moves along quickly. Her characters continue to be lovable for the most part. She is a credit to the historical romance genre. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380781441, Mass Market Paperback)

“I don’t care about your conscience. All I want is for you to kiss me again.”

Lady Madeline Matthews would rather shame herself than sacrifice her freedom. To avoid marrying an aging, lecherous lord, she seeks out the company of Logan Scott, for a torrid affair with the notorious womanizer would surely condemn her in the eyes of good society.

In truth, Logan is an intensely private man tormented by past betrayals. Now a forward little minx, completely at sea in London’s sophisticated whirl, is disrupting his life with her vibrant charm and unspoiled beauty. But when what begins with a kiss threatens to blossom into something more rapturous and real, will Logan and Madeline have the courage to drop the masks they hide behind in the name of love?
