Technically faultless, but disappointing in content. Both plot and characterisation were a little two-dimensional and some of the historical background seemed a little dubious. I'm assuming that Ms Kleypas or her fact-checkers did their homework on the history of the Bow Runners, but the story didn't generate enough interest for at least this reader to explore the factual background.

I just wasn't crazy about this one. The story was alright I just could not connect with the characters for some reason. A good book just not great! ( )

rabck from bluesneak; sizzling, explicit regency romance. Sophia believes that Bow street magistrate, Ross, is responsible for her brother's death. So she gets hired as his assistant, determined to find something to bring him down. But she doesn't expect to fall in love with him. Ross's sworn enemy is Nick Gentry, the leader of thieves...only he's no really Nick Gentry....he's really Sophia's brother, who's not dead after all. So, now that Ross has Nick in his custody - and he certainly is guilty enough to hang for his crimes, what is Ross to do? He loves Sophia and doesn't want to hurt her. So, how to get out of this tangle? ( )

Lady Sophia's Lover
4 Stars

Lady Sophia Sydney is out for vengeance against the man she holds responsible for her brother’s death: Sir Ross Cannon - Chief Magistrate and leader of the Bow Runners. Sophia’s plan is to seduce Ross and destroy him both personally and professionally. However, a wrench is soon put into these plans when Sophia realizes that Ross is not the man she thought and finds herself falling in love with him.

The first 2/3 is simply spectacular. Ross is an incredible hero - intelligent, kind hearted, honorable and a born leader. He starts out quite stoic but softens as Sophia gets past all of his defenses and he realizes that she is everything he never knew he always wanted. Sophia is an engaging heroine and her chemistry with Ross is off the charts sensual. Their growing emotional and physical attachment makes for entertaining reading.

Unfortunately, the plot takes a slight turn for the worse toward the end when Sophia undergoes an a disappointing character reversal - keeping secrets, telling lies and being all round weak and insipid. Where did the strong willed, independent and caring heroine of most of the book disappear to?

Despite this shortcoming and the fact that the twist in the tale is rather obvious, Lady Sophia’s Lover is a well-written and enjoyable read. Looking forward to the last book in the trilogy. ( )

Sir Ross is a magnificently seasoned alpha with the highest morals and standards. A widow now for five years, he remains heartbroken and lonely. His self-imposed celibacy becomes impossible to maintain when Sophia arrives at #4. She, unbeknownst to him, is a calculating temptress who's spirit is broken by the loss of her brother John. Sir Ross is to blame and her mark for revenge via seduction and betrayal. Her own hardness and hatred diminishes as she gets to know him. Her plans get muddled and fuzzy. She begins to fall for him. He's too good to hate and too magnetic to deny.

Sir Ross unleashed is insatiable and passionate. He feasts upon her like a starving beast but with finesse and tenderness. He becomes her protector, champion and devout lover. ( )

Book description
Why is Lady Sophia looking for a lover?
And could she seduce the most marriageable man in London?

Lady Sophia Sydney would do anything to ensnare the unattainable Sir Ross Cannon. Her goal -- to ruin his reputation and cause a scandal that would be the talk of all London. So she insinuates herself into his life by gaining his trust and living in his house.

Every morning, her lush presence tempts him beyond all reason...the way she bends over the table to serve him the meals she has prepared...the way her hands oh, so gently -- yet sensuously -- brush against him. Every night, she promises with her eyes -- and her body -- that the hours before dawn could be spent in unbridled passion instead of restless sleep -- if only he'd let her share his bed.

She knows he is falling more in love with her each day. But she never counted on falling in love with him. And she never dreamed he might very respectably ask for her hand in marriage...
