London s fast-paced narrative is peopled with colorful characters Sophie s growth into a strong, admirable heroine is inspirational and not without its fair share of thrills. "Publishers Weekly"
Sophie is remarkably engaging. Bedeviled by her own insecurities and confused about what she wants out of life, she comes across as a real person. And when London pairs her up with a hero who knows a thing or two about being ostracized, then mixes in appealingly eccentric secondary characters, a bit of danger and suspense, and some nice touches of humor, the result is one delightfully imaginative romance. "Booklist"

Julia London is an excellent writer. I also enjoyed her other book The Devil's Love.
In The Secret Lover you are caught up in secrecy and love. The story of two people falling in love, one penniless and another a companion to a worldly French widow who has a scandal from her past.
I really liked Sophie's character because she stuck up for herself and Caleb is a great hero, dark, handsome and sexy.
The only thing about the book is I wished Ms London spent more on Sophie and Caleb rather than Honorine the French widow and Caleb's father.
Other than that this is a good book.
Lady Sophie Dane reluctantly returns to London to face her sordid past, only to find herself pursued by not one, but two handsome men. Common sense, her family, and society's expectations tell her to turn one way, but she cannot resist the lure of the darkly handsome and scandalous Caleb. Their attraction is instantaneous and magical, and they are totally powerless to resist each other despite the storm of disapproval they face. The love scenes are tender and romantic, their own insecurities and fears proving to be as big an obstacle as the interference of family and freinds.
Julia London has come up with a gripping story and some wonderfully colourful characters, in a story that kept me hooked from the beginning and brought tears to my eyes at the end. Wonderful!!
