Sugar Daddy ~ Lisa Kleypas

Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Pub. Date: March 2008
ISBN-13: 9780312351632



Liberty Jones has dreams and determination that will take her far away from Welcome, Texas—if she can keep her wild heart from ruling her mind. Hardy Cates sees Liberty as completely off-limits. His own ambitions are bigger than Welcome, and Liberty is a complication he doesn’t need. But something magical and potent draws them to each other, in a dangerous attraction that is stronger than both of them.


When Hardy leaves town to pursue his plans, Liberty finds herself alone with a young sister to raise. Soon Liberty is under the spell of a billionaire tycoon—a Sugar Daddy, one might say. But the relationship goes deeper than people think, and Liberty begins to discover secrets about her own family’s past.

Liberty Jones grew up enmeshed in poverty in a rural Texas trailer-park, the child of a widowed mother w/ a mysterious past & a parade of no-good boyfriends.

Liberty Jones took my breath away. She was an amazing character. I was Liberty Jones. I experienced every single facet of her life. Liberty Jones is one of my absolute favorite heroines of all time.

Blossoming Liberty is sharp, persevering & prepared to work fiercely to make her dreams come true.

Enter Hardy Cates ~ blush ~ the boy down the street who embossed himself firmly in Liberty's heart @ the tender age of 13.

Lisa Kleypas knows how to braid a story. Kleypas' plot is irresistible. It remains gripping from start to finish ~ even as it spans over a decade of metamorphosis.

Kudos to Kleypas for not skimping on a thing.

Lisa's gracefully possessed dialogue glints. The well designed characters surge from the page & electrify.

Sugar Daddy is romance @ its best. Liberty Jones's rise from the trailer park to life in a Texas mansion is one to savor.

Lisa Kleypas sparkles in her hardcover debut. Sugar Daddy is also her first foray into contemporary romance.

Sugar Daddy is a story to treasure. Don't forget the Kleenex!

  1. I've heard both good and bad things about this one so I'm wary but I think it may be good...

  2. Ladytink, I'm not into 1st person pov's but was sucked in. I saw some flaws, but she did a steller job.

    I have yet to read her historical romances, so I wasn't full of any hostilities she went to the "other" side. LOL.

    Grab it from the library & see for yourself.

    Happy Reading & enjoy your weekend = ]!
