Marrying Winterbourne by Lisa Kleypas (Review)

Okay, I bought this when this first came out, because I LOVED the first book. I loved the fact that Lisa was bringing a new family, and each of the character brings dynamic to the story. At the end of Cold-Hearted Rake Kathleen does something that pretty much pissed off Rhys Winterbourne, and the wedding is called off. At the time Helen was extremely confused, and not sure how she should feel. By the start of Marrying Winterbourne we see Helen do something ballsy, and she changes the course of her life. However, in Marrying Winterbourne we find out some deep dark secrets about the Ravenel which involve Helen. Actually, the secrets that lie in this story explain why Helen is the way she is.

Rhys is definitely ambitious, and he's willing to take down anyone who gets in the way. In some aspects he scares Helen. She truly fears that his ambition will be the reason they won't get married, and there's more to her fear. Helen is an extremely sweet, shy girl, and she's falling everyday in love with Rhys. However, she has a fear that once he learns the truth about her past, he's not going to want anything to do with her. It's a huge burden for her to carry, and she carries it through most of the book. I love how Rhys softens a little for Helen, because she needs that. After all she never really received that as a child. There parents were special. 

Overall, Marrying Winterbourne is still a pretty good read. I love that see the whole family throughout the story, but at the same time they are in the background. However, the Ravenel's do know how to bound together in a time of need. I can't wait to see how the other children behave.
