Lady Sophia's Lover by Lisa Kleypas

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.
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...

Isabel Says: *originally posted 01/12/06*
I normally don't like revenge plots. It's usually:
Woman has grudge against man. (usually it's they kissed before and the man disappears)
Woman plots to make man fall in love with her and then leave him. (you know to get even)
Woman falls in love with man.
Woman learns truth as to why man may have been a jerk before.(Usually man is a spy or has a family obligation.)
Woman still follows her revenge plot.
Therefore dragging the story of the book.

This didn't happen. Lady Sophia fell in love with Ross. She admitted to her plan. He forgave her and they got married. Of course, there is always some plot twist to spice things up. Which, I didn't mind too much. Also, the love scenes were a bit spicy and naughty. Not that I mind, but it caught me by surprise with this author. (the chamber horse scene. WOW!)

To sum it up. I enjoyed this book. I liked it a lot better than Someone To Watch Over Me.
This is the second book in the Bow Street Runners Series. If you like to read in order, you gotta read the first book. The characters from the first book are mentioned in this one. I give it a B+

So the order so far:
Someone to Watch Over Me
Lady Sophia's Lover.

Holly Says:

Dude, I missed this one, somehow. Either that or I just totally forgot everything about it, because I read it this weekend and it was like reading it for the first time!

In any case, I loved it. LK has always been a favorite of mine and she didn't disappoint with this one.

I loved Sophia and Ross and seeing the more evil side of my favorite Nick was great! Like, Isabel, I don't usually like a revenge plot, but this one was great!

4 out of 5
