When I first started out reading romance, only paranormals and historicals made my to-read list. That was until I finished all of Lisa Kleypas’s historical romance series and was left wanting more. So I went onto her website and read her FAQ page. And much to my surprise, she revealed that Blue-Eyed Devil was probably her all-time favorite. Which made me stop, literally scratch the side of my head, and give an audible, “hmmph.”
Maybe I shouldn’t be so narrow-minded with the sub-genres that I read. So off I went to the local library, made my way to K, and there it was, staring at me. Blue-Eyed Devil in a hardbound copy. Did I think to also check out the other Travis books in the series that were on the bookshelf? Nooo. Of course not. Because I was determined to dislike contemporary romance. In particular, one that features a modern-day Texan renegade. But it was Lisa Kleypas…so I was willing to give it a shot. And am I ever glad I did. Because it had me sobbing, blushing, seething, talking to the characters—because, you know, they can hear me—and then breathing a sigh of relief that the HEA I knew was coming actually occurred. Of course, the next day I went back to the library to pick up Sugar Daddy and Smooth Talking Stranger.
This was immediately followed by a thorough scouring of the internet, trying to investigate when Joe’s story would come out. Months then years went by and *finally* a release date was given.
Now that the date is rapidly approaching, to celebrate the final Travis story, I rate the four couples from this most excellent series.
