Lisa Kleypas has thrilled readers with her unforgettable love stories set in the glittering world of Regency London. Now, the author of Stranger in My Arms, brings her fans a story with all the promise, and oassion, of forbidden love.

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.

Publishers Weekly Review

May 03, 1999 – Untypically, this Regency features lower-class protagonists: a rough-around-the-edges Bow Street runner and a notorious, unlikable courtesan. Grant Morgan, once a poor orphan, has become rich in the service that was the precursor to London's modern-day police force. (Runners worked both for the Bow Street magistrates and as independent detectives.) When he rebuffs the advances of flame-haired beauty Vivien Duvall, she retaliates by spreading vicious, demeaning rumors. He then finds her half drowned, almost strangled to death and suffering from traumatic amnesia--and he takes revenge by convincing her they're lovers. This way, he can bed her easily while searching for her assailant. But is she really who he thinks she is? The questions of exactly who it is that he has slept with and who hates Vivien Duvall enough to try to kill her are quite intriguing. Kleypas (Then Came You) writes a spirited tale, clearly enjoying her characters, but she may unsettle fans of the genre with her willingness to stray from its conventions. Not only does she present a d class world, but Regency misses don't normally say "Ick!"

Someone to watch over me

Loved this book for those who enjoy sequels read this first,then Lady Sophia's lover followed up with Worth any price. I did not realize they all flowed together and read them out of sync. Loved all of them but sure wish they would tell you the sequence when purchasing on iTunes.

Movie please!

My favorite of all LK's books! Great storyline for a movie!!!!


LOVED the Wallflowers & the Hathaways series - devoured them in heaping helpings - less than a week for each series.

I have only made it halfway through this book after almost a week - its premise is disturbing & the characters unsympathetic - the 'hot' scenes warped, contrived & manipulated - am dropping it in spite of a general reader's commitment to complete what I start.

Again, 10 AWEsome books, but this one is, well, NOT.
