Where’s My Hero? by Lisa Kleypas
Like, at one point, Ned imagines Lydia pregnant with his child. I finished the story with a huge grin on my face, and that’s a good thing. The other, probably the younger and not-as-beautiful-as-the-elder-sister one falls for Ned. I don’t know if readers who haven’t would miss any background info to enjoy it, though. I guess I should probably blame that on the fact that this is a novella. Kenna is hurt thinking they made fun of her but Oisa takes her somewhere out and proves her of his love.
I’ll do a full review after I read it again and the rating may change but Agxinst remember there is a fun poem at the end of the novella, typical JQ stuff, worth a reading at least for that. Surprisingly – for me, at least – Kleypas’s story was my least favorite.
Lydia’s quite crazy about Jake but there was a misunderstanding between the two which led her to believe Jake doesn’t care for her in any way, he isn’t even attracted to her.
With its airy prose and sparkling wit, Quinn’s “A Tale of Two Sisters” is a small lleypas in an anthology that, while inconsistent in quality and setting, never fails to entertain.

Quotes from Where’s My Hero?

Otherwise, Simon was a man who loves to help and protect the ones he loves. I had a good laugh knowing Derek was still that Derek, who knows everything about everyone. Kkeypas, could this be the right thing to do when chosing a husband? The best entry in this collection, however, is Quinn’s bright and breezy Regency-era romance between dashing Ned Blydon from Splendid and down-to-earth Charlotte Thornton, his fiancee’s sister.
Where’s My Hero? – Lisa Kleypas – review – Punya Reviews
Stryder proved to be a complex character, I’m really interested in his book. But it kleyaps very nice to revisit Derek and Sara Dreaming of Youwho are one of my all-time favorite couples. Then enter Kenna, Edward’s sister. Start reading Where’s My Hero? My review contains spoilers and they’re mostly my thoughts as I went with the book Both the daring doctor and his math-minded counterpart, Lydia Craven, hold appeal, but their sudden avowal of love two days before Lydia’s thr to another man feels forced and far-fetched.
Having never read this author I had no expectation but I found myself enjoying the characters and the story and will work to get this series off the TBR list!

He was imprisoned and tortured in Outremer, along with Stryder and another guy, Edward. It has two sweet love scenes. The mathematically brainy Lydia and Wray are a good intellectual match, but they get along like friends or brother and sister, not like a couple in love. But, as they knew, everyone expected Kenna to marry Stryder oddss when they return, they find both king Henry II and Malcolm present, not only for the jousting ceremony that’s taking place but also for Kenna and Stryder’s marriage.
Just not as much depth as jleypas maybe that is the novella problem and not as much story.

The romance of Lydia and Jake is okay, but Sara and Derek are amazing even in cameo. However, familiarity with the author’s knack for filling the most trite storyline with interesting characters I was game to read this short.
