|Mass Market Paperback, 28 December 2021||
"Kleypas is a romance gem, a queen among a vast royal court of historical romance authors." --Entertainment Weekly
A stunning new reprint of a classic Lisa Kleypas love story about a man whos decided to forgo all romantic entanglements... until he meets a beautiful woman with a secret...
They call him the Monk of Bow Street
Sir Ross Cannon, magistrate and head of the Bow Street Runners, has spent the past few years apprehending the most dangerous criminals in London. He's driven and disciplined, a man to be feared. His personal needs have been set aside, his days and nights consumed by the determined pursuit of justice.
Until Lady Sophia Sydney, a beautiful young woman with a tarnished past, comes to ask for employment. Ross knows a woman like Sophia doesn't belong in the rough-and-tumble world of Bow Street, but he gives in to temptation and hires her as his assistant. Day by day the attraction between them grows, until neither of them can ignore the power of their mutual desire.
But Sophia has a secret . . . and when Ross discovers the tragic link between their pasts, any chance of being with him will vanish. All they have are a few nights of pleasure, before Sophia will be forced to leave the man she's fallen hopelessly in love with.
What she doesn't count on is how much Ross is willing to risk for the sake of a woman who's awakened his heart.

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??
