However, from the start Sophia finds Sir Ross is nothing like she expected. She thought she would find an old portly employer but Sir Ross is lean and virile and as is revealed is a kind, thoughtful widower. There is instant attraction between the two, Sophia tries to fight it so as not to fail her brother. But this is where the story is so delicious and where Kleypas does her best work in creating a romantic hero that isn't a million miles from reality. Ross cares for Sophia and his character has enough confidence to show it. It's not a weakness, he's clever enough to know that Sophia is up to something in wanting to work for him but he's curious enough not to mentioned aroused by her to find out what.
I'm a big enough fan of Kleypas' that I've even read the bad ones. This isn't one of those. I love the way she writes of their developing sexual relationship. The sex scenes are many and varied and necessary to their blossoming romance which is one that is full of passion and eventual declaration of love.
This is one of the more tightly edited pieces I've read by Kleypas and the lack of a hard villain doesn't hinder the plot a bit. It's fairly obvious who it is after all from the beginning. But other machinations are afoot because after the unveiling of the villain more than halfway through, Sophia still has to decide how much trust she should place in Ross, who she's become afraid to lose and she makes a mistake.
This is a wonderful book. I don't think I've done it justice. Give it a chance and this is one of the books that actually deserves its five star rating. However, one huge complaint is the number of spelling mistakes encountered in Kleypas' kindle books is deplorable. Come on surely some one can deliver a proofed version for publishing??
