Grant Morgan, London’s most eligible bachelor, insists the temptingly beautiful woman he rescued from the Thames is the notorious Vivien Rose Duvall — but she’s not so sure. Now her life is in his hands, and he’s determined to unravel the secrets of her past, no matter what. She couldn’t remember who she was…A temptingly beautiful woman awakens in a stranger’s bed, rescued from the icy waters of the Thames, her memory gone. Told that she is Vivien Rose Duvall, one of London’s most scandalous beauties, she finds herself under the protection of enigmatic, charming Grant Morgan. Her life is in his hands. Deep in her heart, she knows he has mistaken her for someone else…

He was the only man she could trust. As one of London’s most eligible, and unattainable catches, Grant Morgan is a man who has known every kind of woman. And the one in his arms now seems so innocent, so vulnerable, that he can’t help but be enchanted. And as his love for this mysterious beauty grows, he’s determined to unravel the secrets of her past and discover the truth–no matter what. (Taken from GoodReads)

Normally I am a huge fan of Lisa Kleypas, I adore her Wallflower series and it has remained a favourite of mine since I first read it. However, this book has not lived up to my expectations. For some reason the characters seemed to lack that spark that makes Lisa Kleypas books so brilliant. Although I liked them I didn’t fall in love with them.

The romance between the two characters was good, but I couldn’t help getting frustrated with Grant’s treatment of the heroine and I kept wondering when his supposedly amazing sleuthing skills were going to realize that perhaps there was something a bit more then amnesia going on. As for the heroine of the story, well it is always harder for me to like a heroine rather then a hero, and well she was okay kind of standard historical romance fare!

This all makes it seem like it was a bad book, but it wasn’t, infact I am not sure if my high expectations of Lisa Kleypas had perhaps brought it down a feather but neither was it outstanding.
