Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it still the second time around I recently re-read this book. Lisa Kleypas is such a wonderful author. I love it still the second time around...maybe even more so than the first time! Now I just have to go back and re-read the first novel from the Capital series...Julia's story...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So Beautiful. So Sweet......So Disappointing Madeline Matthews, in an attempt to escape an arranged marriage to a wrinkled, old, and all around gross nobleman, runs away from school and into the heart of London, fully intending to ruin herself. She obtains a job at the Capital Theater and meets Logan Scott and he becomes the target of her misguided seduction. Logan suffered extreme physical abuse as a child and is now a hardened man and believes himself impervious to all emotion, especially that of love.....until Madeline. Madeline is shocked that not only is she physically attracted to Logan, but also that she believes herself to be fully in love with him. Logan fights his own attraction to Madeline tooth and nail. But eventually he succumbs to his emotions and accepts her love, and is willing to provide love for her. But Madeline's family tracks her to Logan Scott's home and her duplicity is revealed. Logan believes that Madeline has betrayed him and used love for her as a tool for her own advantage. He shuns her completely. The first two hundred pages of this book were SOOOOO GOOD! I was turning pages like a crazy person. Logan was dark and repressed, and so unnervingly sexy. Kleypas does a remarkable job of displaying his slow realization of his love for Madeline. This book COULD have been perfect. I was utterly enraged when Kleypas decided to bring an unwanted pregnancy into the picture. I can't stand it when authors do this. It FORCES the characters back together rather than actually allowing them to work it out for themselves. Not to mention that Kleypas turned Logan into a complete tool. He treats Madeline with such utter disrespect and coldness that I felt was undeserved. It is true that she betrayed him but that does not excuse Logan from becoming a misogynist. Not cool. Lisa Kleypas is a wonderful writer and I adored the first two hundred pages of this book. But I could not stomach Logan being so oppressive towards the end, or Madeline being so submissive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable til the end After being disappointed in the first book in the Capital Theatre Series, I was hesitant in reading this one. The only reason why I decided to read this one right after was the dark and brooding character of Logan Scott. This novel had passion, yearning and a twist that had me turning the pages for more.
