      Lisa Kleypas follows her Texan Travis family in her latest book “Smooth Talking Stranger”. In this story I fell in love with Jack Travis, the second brother of the Travis family. Jack Travis is wealthy, self-made and a ladies man.

      When Elle Varner got a telephone call from her estranged sister, she knew that it wasn’t good news. Apparently her sister got pregnant and delivered a baby boy and after a few days run off leaving the baby alone.

      choice Elle stepped up to take care of the baby until her sister returns. She also hunts down the father of the baby which her sister claimed was Jack Travis.

      Upon meeting Jack Travis, Ann was disconcerted to discover the handsome and wealthy man is not the baby’s father. But that didn’t stop Jack Travis in getting attracted to Elle.

      Jack admired Elle for taking care of a baby not her own. With the help of Jack, Elle was able to ...

        Jack didn’t extend his kindness to lodging but also helped Elle in dealing with her sister’s problems. Because of they often crossed path, Jack began to fall in love with Elle and Elle was trying to chalk it up to lust.

        Jack has always been easy going especially with the ladies and meeting Elle, he finally realizes the woman of his dreams. I love how the author develops the love between Jack and Elle trying to tie them up even with their imperfect characteristics.

        Both characters are flawed and that made the story more believable and poignant when the two characters finally stop sidestepping the love and lust between them. As usual Lisa Kleypas delivered a winner in this latest book.
