Romance Rewind: Travises by Lisa Kleypas

Romance Rewind: Trailing the Travises

It would be a travisty (haha, see what I did there! *pats self on back*) if you haven't read this excellent series by Lisa Kleypas. This was her first venture in to contemporary romance after writing many many amazing Historical Romances, some of the best in the genre in fact, and we are pleased to say we thought it a resounding success! If you haven't read this series here is the reading order and one of our favourite quotes from each each to entice you!

Book 1- Sugar Daddy

“The span of three or four minutes is pretty insignificant in the scheme of things. People lose hundreds of minutes everyday, squandering them on trivial things. But sometimes in those fragments of time, something can happen you'll remember the rest of your life.”

"I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.”

“One glance and I knew exactly who and what he was. The classic alpha male, the kind who had spurred evolution forward about five million years ago by nailing every female in sight. They charmed, seduced, and behaved like bastards, and yet women were biologically incapable of resisting their magic DNA.”

I actually used the UK covers to show this series as I think they are so much prettier! I hope we have tempted you to give this trilogy a try!

I adore, adore this series, both in print and audio, so glad you you're bringing it to the front, maybe those that haven't discovered yet would give it shot.
Great introduction to the contemporary genre.
First Mine Till Midnight and now this.. I feel a Lisa Kleypas marathon coming soon.

Oh! I am so glad that you posted this. I won a copy of the third book during the hop and had no idea that it was part of a series.

It does sound good, but now I will start at the beginning.

This is one of the best series I have read so far this year. I adore it. Blue Eyed Devil was my absolute favorite. I hooked my 75 year old mother to it.
