Review: MOST IMPROPER MISS SOPHIE VALENTINE by Jayne Fresina

About the book:

SCANDALOUS LADY

Sophie Valentine knew placing an ad for a husband in the Farmer’s 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. The night he first laid eyes on his wayward angel is burned into his memory, 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

MOST IMPROPER MISS SOPHIE VALENTINE is a delightful historical romance. The characters aren’t the usual peers and the story doesn’t take place in ballrooms. Lazarus is a former soldier and a man with a turbulent past. He has spent a long time trying to find Sophie – a woman he once saw on a balcony in London. Sophie is a handful. She acts without thinking and lets her opinions known to anyone who is close enough to hear. I loved her spirit. The relationship that develops between Lazarus and Sophie is romantic and at times funny. They begin their acquaintance with Sophie up a tree and Lazarus getting hit over the head with a dirty book. The secondary characters are all against Sophie, except her Aunt Finn. They try to make her someone she isn’t and Lazarus is the only person who really appreciates her for who she is. MOST IMPROPER MISS SOPHIE VALENTINE is sweet, funny and sexy.
