TITLE: Someone To Watch Over Me
AUTHOR: Lisa Kleypas
SERIES: I believe this is the first in the Bow Street Runner Series
REASON FOR READING:
I’ve heard great things about her historical romances so I wanted to check one out. It was a random pick off the bookstore shelves
SUMMARY: (From the Lisa Kleypas website)
She couldn’t remember who she was…
A temptingly beautiful woman awakens in a stranger’s bed, rescued from the icy waters of the Thames, her memory gone. Told that she is Vivien Rose Duvall, one of London’s most scandalous beauties, she finds herself under the protection of enigmatic, charming Grant Morgan. Her life is in his hands. Deep in her heart, she knows he has mistaken her for someone else…
He was the only man she could trust.
As one of London’s most eligible and unattainable catches, Grant Morgan is a man who has known every kind of woman. And the one in his arms now seems so innocent, so vulnerable, that he can’t help but be enchanted. And as his love for this mysterious beauty grows, he’s determined to unravel the secrets of her past and discover the truth — no matter what.
Although this book was a really slow start for me it ended up making up for it. I really liked Grant and even though he had a score to settle with Vivien he was still very kind and gentle with her.
“Vivien” I liked from the minute she opened her eyes after almost dying. She had strength as well as innocence and I think in this story that combination really worked.
I think all around their love story was good. I can’t imagine that trying to build a relationship while one party has no memory of her past is an easy thing to do, but Kleypas really did a great job with it.
Was the author new to you and would you read something by this author again?
Nope. I’ve read Sugar Daddy and Blue-Eyed Devil, but again my first historical by this author. I will definitely be reading more books by this author.
