THE MOST IMPROPER MISS SOPHIE VALENTINE
Fresina shows a decidedly humorous, as well as sensual, side that is sure to enchant readers. Her delightfully improper heroine and sexy and mysterious hero, as well as an assortment of delightful secondary characters, round out a true charmer of a read.
When Sophie Valentine places an ad for a husband in the Farmer’s Gazette, she shocks the entire village of Sydney Dovedale, but, then, she has shocked them before. When handsome Lazarus Kane arrives, the town is thrown off balance. No one knows that Lazarus has actually been searching for Sophie. When he acquires a nearby property, he jumps at the chance to return. Lazarus is in dire need of reading lessons; Sophie can teach him. He uses this to his advantage. Soon Sophie is falling head over heels for a man she knows nothing about. But once the past rears its ugly head, and truths are revealed, their love is tested. (SOURCEBOOKS, Jun., 370 pp., $6.99)
