This one is an oldie but a goodie. Enjoyed it very much! I’ve almost read all of the Lisa Kleypas historicals now. It’s been hard to find other HR books I adore as much as these. Jul 27, Linds rated it really liked it Shelves: I was looking forward to this book because I thought that Vaallerand was the most engaging character of the previous Vallerand story, though he was only sixteen.
This book has more adventure and pirates than is normal for a Lisa Lisz novel. The reason it has four stars is that Kpeypas felt the tone in the novel was really aggressive and borderline uncomfortable.
I think this had a lot to do with the fact that this is a romance from the early 90’s.

Even though they are wed, he has yet to bed her. And then pirates attack their ship. The book begins with some exciting scenes as pirate Dominic Legare kills the men and takes Celia captive as a present for his brother, Andre. Of course, he has to kill a few pirates to get her but he manages that quite nicely.
Only with Your Love (Vallerands, book 2) by Lisa Kleypas
As it turns out neither brother acted much the hero when it came to women. And then a tangled web is revealed as Celia and Justin clash while fighting the pirates together. I have to say that this heroine came across a bit inconsistent and, at times, cold and indifferent.
Kleypas writes well, of course, and there are some good surprises, but her fans might find this one a bit different than her usual Regencies.
Though set in the Regency period, it’s does not take place in England and the heroine is French. When Strangers Marry is the first book in the 2-book series. View all 3 comments. This is the second and final book about the mighty Creole family the Vallerands.
Here we find him a notorious, dangerous and well known 3. I really liked him and felt the nice guy got the shaft! I believed he was dangerous, he was sufficiently dangerous, and he certainly had a devil-may-care lifestyle. I loved that he fell so completely for Celia. She was believable in all of her emotions of hatred, passion and then love with Justin. It was a nice progression. He made a wonderful transformation as a hero though.
He started out not caring for anyone but himself really and in the end he was willing to give it all up for Celia. They had a strong chemistry between the two of them.
She wrote that rather well in this book.
The steam factor was really good here as well. It was sufficiently steamy, but not as steamy as I know Ms. That said, I did feel the fierce intensity that they felt for one another and the driving NEED that they had for each other. That kept the pages turning quite nicely! I will give it a 5. In the end, I did prefer this book over When Strangers MarryI seem to recall Lysette getting on my nerves a bit in that book and she really got on my nerves in this book.
On valleerand side note, you might like to know that Max and Lysette in this book have two little girls and one little boy. I felt this book flowed a little faster for me. I just wished for a bit more sparkle in this book. Ultimately a slightly above average read for any other author and an average read for a Kleypas book.
Now, for some very brief spoilers: I felt that it was sort of the easy way out of things and it just threw me for a loop for awhile. Thankfully, and conveniently she was a virgin.
How bad is that??? I think Kleypas managed to handle it well and as delicately and quickly as possible. It was very short and natural, and was rightfully included in the story, but the whole time I was pisa are you for real?? Hadiah dari Chiko hehehehe.
P tp ternyata Celia blm diapa2in sama Philip, dia bilang si takut tp dlm hati aku legaa. P well, Justin Vallerands kl udah baca buku 1 nya pasti tau lah sifat-sifatnya Justin itu kek apa, mungkin memang bener ya. Justin itu lebih mirip Max dr yg me Hadiah dari Chiko hehehehe. Justin itu lebih mirip Max dr yg mereka sadari.
Celia, awalnya gw kaga suka banget sama ni cewe hahaha Philip Vallerands aka adeknya sendiri. Pokoknya Justin minta bayaran kr telah nyelametin Celia dr si bajak laut jahat itu dgn tubuhnya, Celia ngga mau lau jelas, sama Philip yg suaminya aja dia takut apalagi sama Justin kwkwkww tp ttp si kejadian juga dan Justin sempet ga percaya kl Celia istri Philip, secara masih V gitu: P abis itu celia di balikin ke New Orleans, dan yaahh.
D trus ada kapten entah siapa namanya yg cari kapten Griffin aka Justin, dan mo nggantung kepalanya.

Only With Your Love (Vallerands, #2) by Lisa Kleypas (4 star ratings)
This one was a vxllerand toned down because the hero didn’t do the initial capturing – he steals her from a really bad pirate to save her because Of course the assumed dead husband isn’t really dead and of course the assumed dead husband was too virtuous to take his wife’s maidenhood on the high seas so she’s able to only ever be with the hero who reforms his wicked high seas ways for her and comes back to embrace the family fold.
The heroine also has liza oh so lovely silvery blond hair that used to be so common on heroines but sadly seems to have fallen out of favor. This is the closest I’ve come to the older romance novels that I cut my teeth on and enjoying it as much as Kpeypas did, well it makes me really annoyed at all the toned down fluffy crap they churn out now.
Justin is a character quite fascinating all on his own, but the fact that he’s a Valleyrand, Max’s son, makes the story that much more interesting. The storyline is good, with Justin rescuing Celia, Phillippe’s wife, from a vicious va,lerand right after Klyepas is killed by the pirate. Justin falls for her in the course of returning her to the Vallerands, and his self-inflicted exile is compromised by his desire to be with her.
Sebenernya aku suka karakter Justin di buku yang ke Cuma pas di buku ini, aku ga terlalu suka Memang sih dari buku ke01 juga udah diceritain kalo Justin dan Phillipe suka rebutan 1 cewe, tapi ngerebut isteri saudara kembar Makanya 3,5 aja yah bintangnya.
Fairly well written but my gosh, the plot made me chortle a bit. New valleraand lost at sea, presumed dead? Never fear, his identical twin brother is here to rescue and ‘comfort you’. Presumed dead hubby reappears at inopportune moment? Cue never before mentioned convenient ex girlfriend to console him so that you and his identical twin brother never have to feel any guilt whatsoever.
