New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas delivers a scintillating tale of an unconventional beauty who finds passion with the spy who can’t resist her
A woman who defies her time
Dr. Garrett Gibson, the only female physician in England, is as daring and independent as any man—why not take her pleasures like one? Yet she has never been tempted to embark on an affair, until now. Ethan Ransom, a former detective for Scotland Yard, is as gallant as he is secretive, a rumored assassin whose true loyalties are a mystery. For one exhilarating night, they give in to their potent attraction before becoming strangers again.
A man who breaks every rule
As a Ravenel by-blow spurned by his father, Ethan has little interest in polite society, yet he is captivated by the bold and beautiful Garrett. Despite their vow to resist each other after that sublime night, she is soon drawn into his most dangerous assignment yet. When the mission goes wrong, it will take all of Garrett’s skill and courage to save him. As they face the menace of a treacherous government plot, Ethan is willing to take any risk for the love of the most extraordinary woman he’s ever known.

My ThoughtsI consider historical romance to be my escape books. Whenever I'm having a tough week or just need a break from life, I escape into the pages of the past and settle in for an enjoyable story. Lisa Kleypas has written over twenty books and knows how to lure her readers with fierce women and the handsome men.
Dr. Garrett Gibson is a determined woman bucking the conventions of the day. She's a physician in London and damn good at her job. And while she loves her life, her friends wonder if all work and no play is taking its toll on Garrett's life. Then she meets Ethan and her life goes from safe to dangerous in about two seconds.
Ethan was captivated with Garrett from the moment he met her. And though he lives a dangerous life, he can't seem to stay away. He works for a dangerous man and is involved in a plot that could take down the government. Inadvertently, Garrett gets involved and is herself a target. And then it gets crazy good from there.
"A woman who defies her time" and "A man who breaks every rule" is the perfect combination. I love a romance book that has the perfect mix or romance with an exciting plot. This book filled all my expectations. If you're looking for a book to escape, Hello Stranger is just the book you need.
