Meet the Author

Sophia Nash’s first ten novels won thirteen national awards including the prestigious RITA Award and two spots on the American Library Association’s “Top Ten Romances of the Year.” Sophia was born in Switzerland, raised in France and the United States, but says her heart resides in Regency England. Her ancestor, an infamous French admiral who traded epic cannon fire with the British Royal Navy, is surely turning in his grave. Before pursuing her long held dream of writing Historicals, Sophia was an award winning television producer for CBS, a congressional speechwriter, and a nonprofit CEO.

    *Moments good...mostly not, though

    Needed better editing. Fully half the book is skippable. I reread the one amorous bit a second time, just because I thought I missed something, but it remained confusing and prosy and vaguely dreamlike, like it was imaginary ... yikes.

    The relationship between the main characters was stilted and strained throughout -- and I couldn't decide if they were both lacking intelligence or if I was, for trying to figure out a plodding plotline and unbelieveable characters.

    I just didn't buy the characters and shouldn't have bought the book.

    Perfect for a rainy afternoon.

    Widow Jane Lovering refuses to allow her father to wed her to another old man for money. She flees to the small town of Littlefield to reside with her spinster aunt, Clarissa Fairchild. It is there she meets Rolfe. At first she thinks he is a stable hand on a runaway horse. She quickly learns he is the obnoxious arrogant, and short tempered Lord Graystock. ........................ Rolfe Fitzhugh St. James, the Earl of Graystock, has never met a woman like Jane before. She remains unbowed before his temper and even goes so far as to offer her help in training his stallion! Rolfe decides to marry her instead of strangle her. But while Rolfe goes behind her back with her knowledge to her father to make arrangements Jane is deciding her own future. By the time Rolfe returns, Jane has met up with a childhood sweetheart Harry who has his own marriage proposal. ....................... As for Aunt Clarissa, it is just her luck that Rolfe's visiting friend, Sir Thomas Gooding (previously his subordinate officer in the military), happens to be one of her suitors from years ago. ................................ ***** There are two, sometimes three, sets of romantic suits going on at once in this deliciously scandalous romance novel. Jane is often coming up with wild plans and attempting to follow through without really considering the consequences of them, or of what her heart tells her. The story is not set in London with all the balls and parties, so no vicious gossiping from anyone in the Ton to speak of. But readers know the tongues in London are blabbing away. This story is the perfect way to spend those rainy afternoon hours. I look forward to Sophia Nash's next release. *****
