Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Against the grit and glamour of London's crime-fighting Bow Street operation, Kleypas weaves an exceptional early-Victorian-era romance that is driven by much more than mere sexual attraction and sizzling loves scenes (of which there are plenty here). Political, social and familial conflicts heat up this story, and not all of the resolutions come easily. Ever since her younger brother died in prison, Sophia Sydney has had one goal in mindto find the magistrate who sent her brother to prison, worm her way into his office and his heart and then destroy him both politically and emotionally. Handsome Ross Cannon, London's most powerful and irreproachable magistrate, is not the hard-hearted devil she had expected, however. Known as the Monk of Bow Street for his celibacy following his wife's death, Ross is fair and forgiving, which Sophia soon learns when she takes up a position as his office clerk and housekeeper. The chemistry between the pair is palpable, but several obstacles stand in the way of their happiness, not the least of which is the shadow of Sophia's brother. With the exception of Sophia, who is given to histrionics, Kleypas's characters are well drawn and refreshingly levelheaded. Even her villain, a famed thieftaker, displays surprising dimensions. Through deft plotting and simple yet stylish prose, Kleypas distinguishes herself as a master of her craft.

I resisted this book for months because it seemed like it was everywhere - supermarket, bookstores and all over amazon. I usually avoid things with mass appeal and, not having read anything from this author before, I was worried it would be in the vein of Stephanie Laurens (whose style I just don't care for). But my trepidation was without merit - I really enjoyed this book!
I found this a story fast-paced, well developed and teeming with sexual tension from the first page! Sir Ross Cannon, seemingly so cool and aloof, but smolderingly sexy just below the surface. He's a good guy who works too hard and holds himself to impossibly high standards. He is also very lonely. Since his wife died five years ago he has immersed himself in his work as Chief Magistrate at Bow Street becoming one of the most powerful men in London. But as they say "all work and no play . . ."
Enter Sophia Sydney. Daughter of a viscount who's fallen on hard times she comes looking for a job. But she has an ulterior motive - to seduce and disgrace the man known as the "monk of Bow Street" for the virutal death sentence he imposed on her brother years before. She expects Sir Ross to be a portly old man but he is far from it. So much the easier for the seducing - then again maybe not. For she is as attracted to him as he is to her. Could become a problem . . .
Well of course it does resulting in some really steamy encounters along the way. And when Ross is wounded, her scheme is completely abandoned when she realizes that she wants nothing more than to care for him. She's come to see what a kind, intelligent, well-intentioned man he is.

What can I say about this book? I was filled with anticipation over Sir Ross Cannon's story!! The most fascinating love stories are always about the elusive, mysterious man. Sir Ross Cannon appears to be cold and aloof on the surface, but underneath this man smolders!!
Sophia is another bold Kleypas ingenue. She sets out to trap Sir Ross to avenge her brother's death, yet, as she learns what makes Sir Ross tick, she finds herself caught in a trap of her own making.
This book is sensual and passionate. The chemistry between Ross and Sophia shows from page one. Also present is the usual "Kleypas twist" that always keeps the reader guessing.
Overall, I give this book a 5. This book has everything that you could want in a romance. What I like most about Ms. Kleypas is her ability to weave a sensually rich story in the most simplistic way. I also like the fact that the characters spend more time exploring their attraction to each other than fighting it. Even though both characters have suffered in his or her own way, they don't dwell on it and are mature enough to love again.
I read this book in one night because I couldn't put it down!! I even had to re-read a few passages because I was so intrigued. Ms. Kleypas is always willing to explore romance and sensuality in a way that very few romantic authors are willing to explore. I always come away wanting more after reading a LK novel. If you're already a Kleypas fan, you won't be disappointed. If you haven't read a Kleypas book before, you are in for a treat!!!
I can't wait to read Nick Gentry's story!!

Since her brother was sent to a prison hulk for a petty crime and died there, Lady Sophia Sydney has thought about avenging his death and her loneliness. She hatches a plan to work for and seduce the man who sentenced him and therefore left her without any family. Once she succeeds in getting him under her spell, she plans to ruin him personally and professionally.

Sir Ross Cannon has been in charge of the Bow street officers who are in charge of keeping London safe. When the beautiful blonde walks into his office applying for the job of his assistant, Ross doesn't know what hit him. But when Sophia starts taking over his personal and professional life, neither of them are ready for their fiery chemical attraction.

When I read the first book in this series Someone to Watch Over Me (Bow Street, Book 1), I wasn't that impressed; I liked it OK but it dragged a bit for me. But quickly into the first chapter of this book I knew I was going to like it a lot more than the first. I found it refreshing and charming. Lady Sophia isn't a simpering virgin. She's strong willed but not hard, resourceful, determined, sweet and beautiful.

Ross is a widower who has made up his mind never to love or marry again and for the past 5 years that has been a non issue. He has found it easy to rebuff the ladies that fawn over him. But Sophia is different and it's an attraction he doesn't want to ignore. He is equal parts alpha and beta male and that made him an irresistible hero.

This story was fun and sexy and there are some unexpected surprises that have me eager to read the next book in the series: Worth Any Price (Bow Street, Book 3). Enjoy!
