Someone to Watch Over Me by Lisa Kleypas

My Lisa Kleypas adventure continues. Because I am a bit pedantic about reading books in order, I got this book because I am working my way up to Worth Any Price. Next up is Lady Sophia's Lover and then I should be ready for Worth Any Price which has been highly recommended!

She couldn't remember who she was...

A temptingly beautiful woman awakens in a stranger's bed, rescued from the icy waters of the Thames, her memory gone. Told that she is Vivien Rose Duvall, one of London's most scandalous beauties,she finds herself under the protection of enigmatic, charming Grant Morgan. Her life is in his hands. Deep in her heart, she knows he has mistaken her for someone else...

He was the only man she could trust.

As one of London's most eligible and unattainable catches, Grant Morgan is a man who has known every kind of woman. And the one in his arms now seems so innocent, so
vulnerable, that he can't help but be enchanted. And as his love for this
mysterious beauty grows, he's determined to unravel the secrets of her past and
discover the truth--no matter what

I pretty much liked both of the main characters, but that is as far as I can go. I liked the idea of Grant (Bow Street Runner, self made man) much more than I liked the way that he turned out in the book, and as for Vivien, I think that perhaps I am not a big fan of the amnesia plot, because whilst it was obvious early on that she wasn't who everyone thought she was, I didn't much care who she really was. Neither of the main characters were quality, which is an interesting change in a Regency, and as a twist should have been enough to keep my interest, but it just wasn't in this case.

This is the first Kleypas book that I could have put down and not worried about picking up again. I comfort myself by thinking that this was an early book, and that it will have been worth it by the time I get to Worth Any Price...hopefully.

Rating 3/5


  1. I was meh about this one too. It's OK but not one of her best. Unfortunatley you have my least favourite coming up (although many people really like LSL) But you do get to meet Nick Gentry - so it's worth it anyway.

  2. I haven't read this one. I am pretty sure I have read WAP but it doesn't sound familiar. I am going to have to work it in for a reread ;).
