Marrying Winterborne by Lisa Kleypas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lady Helen Ravenel wants more than anything to marry Rhys Winterborne, unfortunately certain circumstances got in the way and their engagement was broken. As the Ravenel daughter least likely to cause a scandal it comes as a great surprise when Helen takes it upon herself to go to Mr. Winterborne, unescorted, to tell him how much she cares for him. As their engagement is renewed Helen finds out a secret about herself that might just throw that into jeopardy again.
As with everyone else in Helen's life, I saw her as a backburner character in the first book of the series. Not really taking her into account because she was the 'good' daughter and paled in comparison to the twins. That opinion certainly changed after reading this book. I grew to like Helen as her own character and she had much more of a backbone than she previously let on. As for Rhys, while I did not dislike him in this book, I liked him a lot more in the first book.
