Review: Stranger in my arms by Lisa Kleypas

Title: Stranger in my arms
Autor: Lisa Kleypas
Publisher: Avon
Genre: Historical Romance
Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
Description (Goodreads)
One year after Lara thought her husband was dead in a shipwreck, he returns home to her. But is he really her husband or an impostor? Although the evidence is inconclusive, this new Hunter Hawksworth is very different, and much improved, from the first. Not given to introspection, Lara is willing to put her doubts aside for this man who embodies all her dreams, and desires her with a ruthless and seductive persistence that overcomes her considerable sexual fears.
I found this book in my own library. I thought I read everything ever published by Lisa Kleypas but obviously I missed at least one book. I should really check if there are more unknown publications of her out there. Lisa Kleypas is one of my favorite authors. Normally I just inhale her books. Therefore I was quite happy to discover this novel.

The story is about the young Lara, which discovered her independence as a widow. As her marriage was not a happy one she is quite distressed when her husband Hunter suddenly arrives one year after his supposed death. First she isn't sure if the man is really her husband as he look and behaves slightly different. But he knows facts only her husband could know. They resume their married life but Lara doesn't trust him and don't want to share any intimacy. More and more Hunter proves to be a worthy human being and Lara falls in love with him. Just at this moment she gains evidence that her returned husband is indeed a stranger who took over the identity of Lord Hawksworth. Now it is up to her to decide if they should continue living a lie or if the false Hunter should be prosecuted.

The book is writing in a very descriptive style and easy to read. Though I like the story I was a bit annoyed with the heroine, her motives and her occasionally almost childish behavior. This is one of the early books of this author and I think she evolved since then. All Lisa Kleypas books I read before are characterised by the clever dialogues which I did miss here. The blot was more interesting than expected and I really wanted to know who this new Hunter is. There were quite a few indices that he is another man altogether but there were no apparent hints who his instead. inIt's a nice and lovely romance but nothing more.

I loved the review! I actually used to own this book but I never got a chance to read it because I had so many to read. Now I don't have it anymore because all the books I owned got thrown out :( maybe one day I'll get to read it.
