Someone to Watch over Me

1, Bow Street

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Someone to Watch Over Me is a classic tale from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas. In this Regency romance, Kleypas, the author of Seduce Me at Sunrise, tells the story of a scandalous beauty with no memory of who she is and the man determined to unravel the secrets of her past.

From Publishers Weekly

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

Very easy but exciting reading, I find the books I have read hard to put down. I always am eager to pick them up again to read.

A wonderful change...

I found the deviation from the aristocracy to more attention to the layman very interesting indeed. I could relate to the hero/heroine. Real people without all the restraints of 'Lord This' and 'Lady That'. Fewer privileges but also fewer requirements or expectations... a bit of a break from the usual is ever intriguing and unlike some of the other reviewers I did not find the ending rushed at all. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.


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.
