    Fantastic

    I LOVED this book. I found it extremely touching, romantic, and thrilling. I have enjoyed the entire Bow Street trilogy, and I think this one might just be my favorite. I wanted to give the hero a great big hug! I loved how Nick is NOT a gentleman and makes no apology for the fact, and I love how Lottie accepts and loves him the way he is. This is very much a keeper for me, and one I will no doubt be re-reading in the future.

    Exciting Read

    This book has a swoon-worthy romance, a wonderfully tortured hero, and a heroine with the strength to heal him while standing firm against her own demons. It's a delightfully engaging story that kept me riveted and on the edge of my seat.

    Even readers who don't usually read historical romances will find a multitude of reasons to enjoy themselves. There's not a lot of stuffy language and the dialogue is easy to relate to. Nick's reasons for being the bedeviled soul that he is are heartbreaking and tragic. Lottie's reasons for running are typical but her perseverance and cleverness isn't. She'd rather die than face what her parents have in store for her. She's like a willow, she'll bend but won't break and that holds her in good stead throughout this tale.

    Ms. Kleypas has a way of reaching a reader's emotions and bringing her characters to life. She sets up the hero's point of view with a unique and interesting opening sequence. I enjoyed the brief wisdom from Gemma and how it plays out later in the book. In fact, it's what makes this story so hot and passionate. The legacy of that temporary character brought many moments of enjoyable lovemaking and scenes that I wanted to read again and again. Not because of what Nick and Lottie do, but the sentiments behind them, and the feelings that drove the hero and heroine are what made them memorable. Not to mention their coming together in all those unique places and positions, and those seductive whisperings that tantalized my imagination. From innocence to loving debauchery, all was well done and it mattered to the plot. And because Ms. Kleypas wrote such endearing characters, I cared whether or not they found happiness.

    The villain generated a couple of different feelings from me. As first, I feared his power, not unlike Lottie. But towards the end, I felt pity. He was a man who truly didn't know what love was. He was a twisted and manipulative person with some serious mental issues that prevented him from being the man he could have been. Being a peer and rich couldn't buy happiness. I actually felt sad for him. On the other hand, Lottie's parents were whacked. I think they were worse and should have the villainous label attached to their behavior. How dare they! And their reactions to Nick's offers made me fear for the rest of Lottie's siblings. When her father finally opened up his mouth, I rolled my eyes. Too little, too late. Thank goodness she had Nick.

    Other secondary characters were important. Sophia, Nick's sister, and her husband Sir Ross were instrumental in moving the plot along. So too was Sir Grant. In fact, some of the more amusing and adorable scenes and dialogue occur with them interacting with the hero and heroine.

    There is light drama and action and a bit of suspense to keep a reader flipping the pages. The burgeoning romance between Nick and Lottie was sweet in its tentative steps but when they finally got over the initial hurdles, the author allowed a reader to explore Nick's emotional depths and needs. I even liked the part when he tied up Lottie and introduced her to his other kind of desires. It certainly made an impact and was one more good reason to not put the book down until the end. The epilogue showed Sir Ross in a different light during his dialogue with Nick. It was cute and when Nick realized exactly what Sir Ross meant, it was really funny.

    definitely worth any price!

    I just finished reading this one and I loved it. To the people that gave this book negative reviews, may I ask why? This is a historical romance, it was very romantic with the main charecters sharing a deep love for each other. It also contained interesting historical facts about the time period. What else where the negative reviews looking for from this book?
    Ignore the negative reviews, this was a very sweet touching book. Its an easy read that will take you back in time, to 'another world'. You will defintely become absorbed in the love between the two main charecters, and will probably be sad to see the book end. I definitely was! If you like romance, you'll love this one! a lisa kleypas all the way!

    Worth any price

    L.K. has outdone herself. I have read all of the Bow Street series and I am in love. The characters are 3 dimensional, the guys ate hot, and the love scenes are to die for. I have become a fan and hands down Nick and Lottie are my favorite couple.

    She manages to catch you up in every book.

    Even when you really do't want to be involved in the story you get pulled in. You end up loving the people in it and hoping they do wonderful things.

    I have read this at least twice as it is on my keeper shelf alon

    I have read this at least twice as it is on my keeper shelf along with all her books. My favorite of the series because the hero is not of the cookie cutter variety found mass producted in so many historical novels.

    A Good Pastime on a Cold Winter Day

    Once again, just read my comments about all the other Kleypas books. I just thoroughly enjoy them. They might not appeal to all rfeaders. I can only speak for myself. I admit that I am a committed Kleypas fan.

    If you enjoy a good romance novel in a Victorian Setting, you have to buy this book.

    I have read many of Lisa Kleypas books and she adds a great deal of history to her love stories. This book hit home for me because the main character, a woman with physical scars, doesn't feel that she will be attractive to her one true love. I have an ostomy and had a great deal of difficulty accepting this physical change. I felt I was ugly. I can relate to this book personally because of this. Certainly one of this author's best books that isn't part of a series. Enjoy.

    Awesome book!

    I am not usually a big fan of romances though I do sometimes read them, but I read this book years ago and it is the only romance ever to really stick in my mind enough to want to come back to. It was intense and definitely worth reading again!

    WOW.

    This book was GREAT! I got it because I really liked 'Someone to Watch Over me,' another one of the Bow St. Runner books. But this one was the BEST. The characters are great, the writing is wonderful, the love scenes make a girl wish that Nick was real...

    LIsa Kleypas is Amazing

    I really enjoyed this book. It is my favorite out of the Bow Street Runners Trilogy. I Really enjoyed that Nick Gentry started the book as a virgin which is so strange in a historical romance novel. The reason he was just made him more realistic.
