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.

I'm thrilled to be reading the next installment of The Ravenels! Who is the new historical romance series by the amazing Lisa Kleypas, in fact, I just "might" have made a whole Instagram story of me getting it out of the package.... Yep! Totally fangirling.

In Hello Stranger we finally get to find out where Ethan Ransom fits in with the Ravenels, and why he seems to avoid them as much as he can. But we also get to spend more time with Dr. Garrett Gibson! Not only as the only women physician in England, but we get to see her awareness of Ethan!

But no true love runs smoothly, especially when an assassin is out to get Ethan, and those he thought were allies, were the ones plotting his death! But then push come to shove, will Garrett be able to save him?

I have never made it a secret that I absolutely love Lisa Kleypas, her writing is what made me fall in love with Historical Romance in the first place, and for me, Hello Stranger gives me that same excited vibe. I really enjoyed the characters, and plot, the only draw back for me was the cover, and while I'm not a big fan of it, the actual story is marvelous! So in this for instance, DO NOT judge a book by its cover.

I give Hello Stranger 5 stars!
