I read the first book in this series a while a go and it was one of the few Lisa Kleypas that I didn’t fall in love with, which is why it took me so long to get started on this book, that and the cover where it looks like the woman is being strangled to death!!!! This was a mistake, I adored this book!We met Sir Ross Cannon fairly briefly in previous book, Someone to Watch Over Me, and he seemed staid and slightly cold with his wintery grey eyes, that just goes to show you that it is always the quiet ones! As we see Sir Ross come out of his shell under the care of Sophia we find out that he is a passionate but lonely man, who has crushed all his human desires under his massive pile of work. Sophia was also a great heroine, originally she has come to Bow Street to try and destroy the man who she believes responsible for the death of her younger brother, Sir Ross Cannon, but as she gets to know the man she is finding it more difficult to carry put her plan of revenge.

Once again LK has managed to write a love story that is both sweet and caring but also hot as hell, you could feel the tension between the two characters from the first moment they laid eyes on each other, and I thoroughly enjoyed Ross’ wicked thoughts about Sophia when he first saw her across his desk.

There was also a small mystery, but I thought Sophia’s “stalker” was fairly obvious but I don’t mind that too much, honestly I was so enthralled watching Sophia and Ross together that it paled in comparison. But having said that, it has made me look forward to the next book very much.

Favourite Sir Ross Quote:

“I am not overbearing,” Ross countered evenly. “I merely happen to know what is best for everybody.”

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
