I absolutely love Lisa Kleypas, she is a very talented novelist and I think she just excel’s at Historical Romance, The Bow Street Runner’s Series was the first I read from Kleypas and I do think these are the best she has done. They are rich atmosphere, the plot’s are wonderful and so easy to read, the character’s are equally brilliant and so well drawn up that they do seem so real. Unlike a lot of Historical Romance novel’s you don’t get bored after a few page’s and end up falling asleep, which I have done in the past and these book’s do stay with you a long time after you have put them down. So definitely worth a read.
#1 Someone to Watch Over me
This is the first one and it is a great introduction to the Runner’s, this first one we get to know Sir Grant Morgan, a cynical charismatic giant of a man who has pulled his self out of the slum’s of the London gutter to be one of the highest respected Runner’s. Grant is called out in the middle of the night to attend a drowning at the river Thames but on getting there is find’s out that the victim is someone he know’s, someone who he not only despises but he attracted to. The victim has lost her entire memory and she is told that she is the highly prized, scandalous courtesan Vivian Duvall and she find’s herself under the protection of Grant Morgan who she believe’s he has mistaken her for someone else.
#2 Lady Sophia’s Lover
Can lady Sophia seduce the most eligible man in London?
The second one in the trilogy and we meet Lady Sophia Sydney and Sir Ross Cannon, she would do anything to ensnare the unattainable Sir Ross her goal is to ruin his reputation and cause scandal that would be the talk of all London. So she charm’s her way into his life by gaining his trust and living in his house. But can her charm’s work on the Monk of Bow Street? unfortunately she can come across as cold and heartless until you get to know her and then you see she that everything she doe’s she doe’s for a reason. Like the first it is a good read and as we go along we are learning more and more about these charming character’s.
#3 Worth Any Price
What is the price of love?
Ex Crime Lord and Bow Street Runner, Nick Gentry is reputed to be the most skillful lover in all of England, Known for solving delicate situation’s. He is hired to seek out Miss Charlotte Howard, he believe’s his mission will be easily accomplished – but that is before he meet;s the lady in question for instead of a willful he discover’s one in desperate circumstances, hiding from a man who would destroy her very soul. The last Installment of the Bow Street Runners Series doe’s not disappoint in fact in my view this is the best of the three, it is fast paced, stunning and very sexy there is a lot of sizzling vented up emotion’s from the beginning, by far the best character’s in the entire trilogy is Nick, on one hand he is charming and caring and on the other he is ruthless and vindictive such a fascinating character and just one in a truly fascinating series’.
