He's also a powerful member of the Bow Street Runners, and when he's called to the waterfront late one night to investigate a drowning victim, Grant is stunned to recognize the face of Vivien Rose Duvall, a well-known woman of the night.
He's even more startled when he realizes that she's alive. With no one to care for her, Grant carries Vivien to his home and revives her, only to learn that she is suffering from amnesia. Vivien hesitantly accepts her handsome rescuer's claim that she is his mistress, despite her misgivings about her true identity. Nevertheless, she can't deny the marks on her throat that prove her near-drowning in the Thames was not an accident, and now she must trust the man who claims her as his paramour, for her life is in danger.
As Grant searches for Vivien's attacker, the two find themselves falling in love, all the while struggling to stay one step ahead of the evil forces that will stop at nothing to see Vivien dead.

This book reminded me of the time when my prostitute twin sister let me be mistaken for her when I had amenesia after being attacked by her angry john and father of her unborn baby. I was saved by an angry policeman who thought I was the hooker that once spurned him no amount of money in the world! Not for every loose Canadian coin in the couch, etc.
Luckily, he had seen Overboard with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn a classic film and let me think we had a relationship where he wore the pan This book reminded me of the time when my prostitute twin sister let me be mistaken for her when I had amenesia after being attacked by her angry john and father of her unborn baby.
Luckily, he had seen Overboard with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn a classic film and let me think we had a relationship where he wore the pants and I wore the lingerie. When we were kids, we'd have to apologize and kiss and make up to solve fights. That solution works very well for what hero Grant did to his heroine. Real life isn't that easy. Not for all the tea in china, or the Boston harbor either, would I have forgiven Grant that easily.

To his surprise an "She was sore in places she had never been sore before. To his surprise and delight it is Vivien — most expensive and most desired courtesan of London. And Grant has a bone to pick with her, so he takes her to his house where he intends to have his little revenge.
She also appears very shy, modest, weirdly into books and absolutely mortified when she finds out she is supposed to be this high flying prostitute. Anyone who has ever seen at least half an episode of any soap opera knows damn well that amnesia goes hand in hand with people having secret twin siblings.
Only Grant has never seen any soap opera so he is convinced Vivian playing some silly game. And, of course, how will he find out how wrong he was? So yeah, a bit out there, non? But probability is not what I want from my girly porn. Neither do I want historical accuracy. If I wanted historical accuracy I would read Dickens. It is something like Middle-earth, if you like. Hey, wanna go down on me again? For pages. View all 3 comments.

It has an interesting plot — a courtesan with amnesia being pursued by someone who is trying to kill her and the man who saved her life and is now protecting her, bent on revenge for some wrong she did him in the past. There were only a couple of instances when I wanted to skip through some of the foundation details and get back down to the nitty-gritty of the story. That statement brought a surprised laugh from her. I wish we had been given more candid peeks into the man who is Grant Morgan. He is one sensual, sexual man. View all 18 comments. OK, the "big twist" was obvious as was the "bad guy".
Maybe I have read too many Romantic Suspense books over the years that I can pick up on these things! I loved Grant, a commoner, vowed never to wed I am really interested in the next book. Sir Ross Cannon sounds like an intriguing character. So, he gets a Daniel Craig. I mean he goes tearing after the bad guy, beats said bad guy up and is torn between giving said bad guy his final look at the world. Yea, he's alpha hot. Don't be fooled. Anyway, H finds h and think she's one person when it turns out view spoiler [she's not hide spoiler ] but he continues to treat her that way wanting to make her pay for some previous slight.
The rest of the book is about discovering view spoiler [who she is and who is trying to kill her and why hide spoiler ]. Heroine : Let's just call her V for now. You know, she's pretty awesome. She might have a few less than bright moments, but she maintains who she is and that quiet strength throughout the entire book, never once breaking character as it were. THAT is good writing.
And he can't get away from his ego need to mollify his hurt little feelings by doing something mean to the h. Someone call the guy a whaaaaaambulance. Of course, he atones for his sins and somewhere in there falls in love and realizes he really is a good person. Why it did or didn't work for me: Yea, it worked. I am going to assume a lot of people can't get away from the hero's sh!
I mean he really is a d! Mean, mean, mean. Be he truly atones for his misguided meanness and I don't think the heroine is going to let Grant backslide. It was a good read and I'm glad I picked it up. Here's to reading groups pushing you to read beyond your boundaries. Although, let's admit it, my book boundaries are few. She continues to blame the heroine for her situation despite the heroine only responding to her sister's beck and call. I'm sure Kleypas wanted us to react that way. It just makes the most sense. Time to watch Meet the Press and all. View all 8 comments.
Jun 17, Duchess Nicole rated it liked it Shelves: e-pcs , self-contained , genre-historical-romance , 3-star-read , read-in , sigh-worthy. I wasn't sure I'd like a story about a famous London hooker. I'm not one to be very forgiving of overly promiscuous leads, especially females. Those midwestern roots of mine are showing!!
But this heroine won me over very quickly. She was a nice little mystery to unveil. The hero wasn't as charismatic as Kleypas' other men, so maybe that's why the story didn't grab me as much.
Still, a nice HR with a great 3. Still, a nice HR with a great message She creates some secondary characters that are not imminently likeable, and yet her heroes and heroines are supremely tolerant of their sins and oddities. I like the books all the more for it. This is my first historical romance book by Lisa Kleypas. I found a certain ease about her writing and I have to say I rather enjoyed it.
Even though Grant was a bit of a brut sometimes I found him to be charming. And Vivien was sweet and kind. A perfect match for him. It had an interesting plot and I loved the ending!! I'm certainly looking forward to reading more of her historical romance books. View all 28 comments.
I've been in a reading funk with a medeocre dragon series. Thank Goodness for Lisa Kleypas coming to the rescue!! Vivian Duvall Vivian is the most sought after courtesan. How unfortunate that she and Grant don't get along. What an Amazing twist and a wonderful love story!!

Jun 27, Laura the Highland Hussy rated it liked it. Lisa Kleypas did in fact pull it off, but not to my satisfaction. I did come to like him, but with all the descriptions of him as being large, hulking, a lummox, a thick pelt of fur chest hair , having large hands, I just pictured him as Robert, the brother from Everybody Loves Raymond. I couldn't help 3. I couldn't help myself! He came to mind no matter how I tried to give the hero those beautiful green eyes, or the gorgeous abs of steel I got Robert every time.
The prostitute storyline was very bold, especially with the revenge plot thrown in-that was my dislike for the hero, the vengeance he wanted. And even though he fell in love with Vivien before he knew the truth, I still had the same doubts Vivien view spoiler [Victoria, actually hide spoiler ] had. I feel Lisa Kleypas did a good job on the plot, but I felt that the actual murderer came out of left field. Well, the man who hired the murderer did. We could all see the actual murderer from a mile a way. Anyways, I enjoyed it, but felt at some point a bit more remorse on Grant's part would have helped me, and a bit more fire and anger from the heroine would have helped me with her.
View all 49 comments. Apr 24, Zoe rated it it was amazing. I read this book many many years ago and loved it. It is a wonderfully written book, definitely one of Lisa Kleypas' classics. Bow Street Runner rescued the virgin sister of a famous courtesan. The attraction is steamy and the lead characters very likable.
What I find a bit unsettling is I never really knew whether the hero liked the heroine or her sister.
The mistaken identity is naturally the big plot in the book. It did make me wonder, is he attracted to the heroin, really? Or it is her sister I read this book many many years ago and loved it. Or it is her sister that he lusts after and the poor girl was just a replacement? Overall a very entertaining story. I would still rate it 5 stars. The characters are extremely lovable and you just want them to be together. They are not members of aristocracy and overcoming the issue of her being a prostitute should have been a problem then.
The Runners are great choice. After Grant Morgan takes Vivien to his home to recover, remembering how she spread gossip about him two months ago because he refused her, all he wants is revenge. He doesn't expect Vivien not to remember who she is nor that she is completely different person from manip 2. He doesn't expect Vivien not to remember who she is nor that she is completely different person from manipulative liar he met before. And that brings me to the bad: the solution for all this is plain lazy. After reading the blurb and the moment Grant and Vivien meet at the ball for the first time, I realized they have a real problem on their hands.
I wondered how their relationship would be solved. There is no misunderstanding her character at that ball - she is a terrible person, she manipulates and lies. Grant showed her how not special she is and got two months of gossiping behind his back. That doesn't excuse his behaviour towards a woman who had been hurt later on. Vivien doesn't act the way she is supposed to and Grant doesn't know what to do. Yes, he still wants to get back at her, but the woman who is his guest is the opposite of everything he saw before.
I wondered how she would act when her memory comes back, when she sees just how bad she has been and I am not talking about her being a prostitute. Vivian truly was a bad person. However, there was no solution. The author took the laziest way out. With that the story lost all the depth.

I know I marked this as a spoiler, but I won't write what exactly happens. I really didn't like the solution nor some of the actions of Grant Morgan even if I think he is an extraordinary character. Later, he gets better. Here, I love the idea of Bow Street Runners being at the centre and I will read the rest of this series. Feb 03, Dina rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-romance , to-review. Im a fairly new reader of LKs books and Im yet to read a bad one. The "big mystery" involving the heroines identity was pretty easy to figure out, but I enjoyed following the hero try to solve it.
I loved Grant, a working-class hero who was a welcome "breeze of fresh air" among the usual Lords that dominate historical romances. Crazy Credits. Alternate Versions. Rate This.
