H&H Reads: Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas (Part 5 of 6)

Part 5 of H&H Reads Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas is available exclusively on Heroes and Heartbreakers to members. Please log in or register at right to read the rest!


Lisa Kleypas recently announced that the next book in the Travis Family series, Brown-Eyed Girl, will tell the long-awaited story of Joe Travis (!!!!!). Clearly a reread of where it all began is in order, right? And obviously nothing beats being able to read (and discuss) a book together! So with that in mind...

Today, we're excited to present the brand-new program, H&H Reads, with part five of the Travis story that started it all—Sugar Daddy!

Every Wednesday and Sunday from now until September 1, we'll be posting Sugar Daddy in six easy-to-read (if not so easy to wait for!) parts. Right before each new part goes up, we'll be taking down the previous one, so make sure you don't miss a single piece of the book. Whether you're a long-time fan of the book or completely new to the Travises, we hope you'll read along and then come discuss each section of the book with us!

Liberty Jones has dreams and determination that will take her far away from Welcome, Texas—if she can keep her wild heart from ruling her mind. Hardy Cates sees Liberty as completely off-limits. His own ambitions are bigger than Welcome, and Liberty is a complication he doesn’t need. But something magical and potent draws them to each other, in a dangerous attraction that is stronger than both of them.

When Hardy leaves town to pursue his plans, Liberty finds herself alone with a young sister to raise. Soon Liberty is under the spell of a billionaire tycoon—a Sugar Daddy, one might say. But the relationship goes deeper than people think, and Liberty begins to discover secrets about her own family’s past.

In about forty-five minutes I returned to the condo with two bags of groceries. Gage was nowhere in sight. As I followed a trail of wadded-up tissues toward the bedroom, I heard the sounds of a shower running, and I grinned as I realized he had taken my suggestion. I went back to the kitchen, picking up tissues along the way, and deposited them in a garbage disposal that looked as if it had never been used. That was about to change. I took the groceries out of the bags, put about half of them away, and rinsed a three-pound chicken in the sink before setting it in a pot to boil.

Finding a cable news channel on TV, I turned up the volume so I could hear while I was cooking. I was making chicken and dumplings, the best cure I knew of. My version was pretty good, although nothing came close to Miss Marva’s.
