Book Description

Jan. 1 2011 Gambler of Craven’s Series
Reckless, wild, and beautiful, Lily Lawson delights in shocking proper London society – and now she is determined to rescue her sister from an unwanted impending marriage to the notorious Alex, Lord Raiford, by fair means or foul. But while she succeeds outrageously, Alex is a master gamesman who is not to be undone. Alex has lost one bride, yet he is enchanted by this remarkable lady who is willing to break any rule to flaunt her independence. When Lily offers him only scorn, he counters with kindness, and he parries her blistering barbs with gentle words and a soft, tender touch. The spirited miss will pay dearly for her interference – with her body, her soul, and her stubborn, unyielding heart. But will Alex's own heart be the prize to be won in this sensuous game of love?

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Sizzles the Second Time Around!!! Nov. 20 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this most excellent read by Lisa Kleypas, you are introduced to one of her more endearing heroines. Lily Lawson, sometimes referred to as Lawless Lily is known as a true eccentric and outrageous young woman. She gambles, swears, rides astride in pink breeches and seems to delight in shocking escapades. She wasn't always that way but after being jilted at the altar by her fiancé and her subsequent escape to Italy --- what had once been termed adventurous behavior was now termed outrageous! When an old and dear friend Zachary, Lord Stamford comes to her pleading that she intervene for him to save her sister Penny from marrying the harsh and cold Lord Alex Raiford, Earl of Wolverton, she finds that she couldn't refuse his request and travels to investigate herself how unsuitable a match this earl would be for her sister.
Alex's impression of Lily was that she was no better than a demimonde - he'd heard the rumors of her association with the gamester, Derek Craven and her outrageous behavior only reinforced his opinion. The fact that he was seriously attracted to her only further enraged him as he saw through her charade in attempting to bring Zachary, the man her sister Penny was secretly in love with back together. After Lily successfully engineered her sisters elopement she knew that Alex would be out to punish her, but she never dreamed that the punishment would be so satisfyingly sensual!
I first read THEN CAME YOU some years back and even knowing the story, I thoroughly enjoyed every single dialog and sensually sizzling scene all over again! Lily, is a heroine that will both shock you with her antics and tug at your heartstrings with her hidden heartbreak of losing her daughter.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lovely Lily Lawson was jilted as a young debutante because she was too intelligent, too independent, too much of everything to ever fit the description of a demure, passive Regency deb. She did attempt an obedient, maidenly facade with her fiance, but her bubbly nature bubbled over, and she lost him. Brokenhearted, she left England with her wealthy maiden Aunt Sally to travel on the Continent. While in Italy, Lily was seduced by an Italian scoundrel. After a regrettable night of painful, humiliating and totally passionless sex, she vowed off men and sex as an impediment to her life, as she would live it. Then she discovered that she carried a bambino - a souvenir from her Italian stallion. Her aunt, from whom she must have inherited most of her gene pool, was delighted and reassured Lily that they would live their lives in a villa in Italy - a perfect family of three.
Complications arose after the beautiful baby, Nicole, was born. Aunt Sally died, Nicole was kidnapped, Lily was blackmailed for lots of money to insure the safety of her daughter, and she had to return to London to be able to make the money she needed. Now, Lily gambles, almost nightly, at her Cockney friend's infamous gambling club, the only woman permitted to do so - and has a seemingly endless lucky streak. She is called Lawless Lily for her reckless ways; wildly riding in breeches to the hunt, drinking, cardplaying, etc. Ironically she is supposed to have had many lovers - in truth, there has been only one, once...and that was plenty for her.
Lily's younger sister Penelope is engaged to marry the arrogant Earl of Wolverton, in a loveless, arranged match. Lily, determined to save her sister so she can marry the man she loves, marches to the rescue...

5.0 out of 5 stars my new #1 author Feb. 21 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my first Lisa Kleypas book. It was on the shelf for the longest time before I picked it up. Gosh! I was NOT disappointed. The first chapter of the book had me hooked, I couldn't put it down! The main charater Lily was beautifully portrayed, and her troubled story made her character bold, beautiful and courageous. I was a little put out with the hero Lord Alex and his over bearing attitude, but I realized that the clash between these two made the book flow. I loved the sex scene in the apartments of Derek Craven, Ms. Kleypas writes the sex scenes with a passion that is not trashy or "fake", she knows how to engross you into the lives of the characters. The plot fits so beautifully together so that when the book ends, it leaves me feeling content that this was truly a beautiful love story!
I hope that Ms. Kleypas writes a story about Derek Craven, even though he had a thing for Lily, I believe that his story is one that would be worth reading! I loved his "bad-trouble boy" image and I believe he would light the pages up! Heads up Ms. Kleypas! Beautiful work!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first book. Oct. 22 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I picked this book up by chance one day. I've never read any of her books before, and I was pleasantly surprised, and pleased with this book. Lawless Lily as she was known to men and all of England was a rebel,who shocked her society with her wild ways. She gambled and took dangerous risks. She was bound and deterimed to stop her sister Penny from marrying Lord Alex Raiford a powerful and rich man. Alex on the otherhand thought Lily was a fascinating woman to him, and he was determined to tame her and bend her to his will. There was a lot more to Lily that really made her endearing to me and to find out you will just have to read the book. The side characters were also excellently portrayed, just all-around fun read. Now I'm off to read the sequel called Dreaming of You.
