Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A scintillating debut...as addictive as chocolate.--Mia Marlowe, author of Touch of a Rogue

Wanted: one husband, not too particular. Small dowry, several books, sundry furnishings, and elderly aunt included. Idlers, time-wasters, and gentleman without other attachments need not apply.--Miss Sophie Valentine

A SCANDALOUS LADY

Sophie Valentine knew placing an ad for a husband in the Farmers Gazette would bring her trouble-and she was right. When the darkly handsome, arrogantly charming Lazarus Kane shows up on her doorstep, the nosy residents of Sydney Dovedale are thrown into a gossiping tizzy. After all, it's common knowledge that Sophie is a young lady In Need of Firmer Direction. But even Sophie isn't so scandalous as to marry a complete stranger. .. is she?

SEEKS HANDSOME STRANGER

Lazarus Kane has been searching for Sophie half of his life. She may not remember him, but he could never forget her. But the past is a dangerous thing, and it's best if his remains secret if he wants to tempt Sophie with ...

A MOST IMPROPER PROPOSAL

Review:

"E-book author Fresina (Once a Rogue) moves into print with a Regency historical romance featuring lovable leads. When the impulsive Sophie Valentine turns 29, she decides that her obnoxious brother and his whiny wife are impossible to live with, so she scandalizes her family by advertising for a husband. Lazarus Kane caught a glimpse of Sophie on the night of her ruin a decade earlier and has been searching for her ever since, so naturally he answers the ad. He has faced life at its bleakest, knows what he wants, and goes after it with clever persistence that occasionally backfires. After spying Sophie with a naughty book, he proposes she teach him to read in return for love lessons. The hero's painful, decidedly nongenteel history grounds this otherwise fluffy story. Occasional outlandishness, remarkable coincidences, and reliance on well-rendered but sometimes stock characters are mitigated by Kane's eminently witty and readable prose.
