Publisher's Summary

Nick Gentry is reputed to be the most skillful lover in all England. Known for solving delicate situations, he is hired to seek out Miss Charlotte Howard. He believes his mission will be easily accomplished – but that was before he met the lady in question.
For instead of a willful female, he discovers one in desperate circumstances, hiding from a man who would destroy her very soul. So Nick shockingly offers her a very different kind of proposition – one he has never offered before.He asks her to be his bride.
And he knows that this will be much more than a union in name only. For he senses what Charlotte does not yet know – that her appetite for sensuality matches his own. But what Nick learns surprises him. For while London’s most notorious lover might claim Charlotte’s body, he quickly discovers it will take much more than passion to win her love.

Great job S Duerden

Any additional comments?

I believe the narrator can add so much to the fondness of a book as I am sure most people do as well. The way this narrator lowers her voice to perform as a man actually helps her give the character a sexy sound. Loved the story especially since I have personally been involved in a similar circumstance. I believe Lisa did a great job showing the character's susceptibility and fears all the way. However, where she falls short is at the end trying to tidy all. Abusive men usually take the one they obcess about first and then their own. But I feel that did not take away from the story. I highly recommend this book.

Gotta love Lisa Kleypas!

The 3rd book in the Bow Street Runners series does not disappoint. This book is all about the relationship of Nick Gentry, reformed (or is he?) former thief taker and current Bow Street Runner, and Miss Charlotte Howard, on the run from the disgusting man that her parents promised her hand to. Full of romance, steamy sex scenes, fun dialog, and plot twists, I found this book really fun to listen to! I am so disappointed that there are no more stories in this series. Thanks to Lisa Kleypas for another fun historical romance.
