Meet the Author



In 2004, Sofia Harper began her writing career as a romantic suspense author. A bit problematic because she couldn't write anything mystery-like to save her life or even her characters. On a whim, she penned a contemporary where there was no dead body or explosions to save her from the dreadful middle slumps of a book. It was only the characters and what they had to deal with. She hasn't looked back since. She continues to write contemporary romances, mainly under a different pen, filled with sassy heroines and unlikely heroes. These stories are filled with one-liners, but heartfelt and sexy.


Outside of writing, Harper works as a mail clerk for the federal government, has a paralegal certificate (that she has more use for as a dust pan) and is a mother of two rambunctious children. She lives in California where the wine is good and, despite popular belief, is not always sunny. Harper plans to spend the rest of her days writing, raising her children and drinking good wine. Occasionally she'll brush her hair and get dressed, but that's optional.

    This book was okay.  I liked it for the most part, but what brought it down was Leah's immaturity.  At least to me she seemed extremely immature.  It was a good attempt, but to me it just fell a little flat.

    the chemistry and the heat was there...

    Okay this is my first time reading anything from this author and it won’t be my last. There’s something special about reading a book and being pleasantly giddy and surprised, and that is how I felt reading “Hot Knight in Paradise”. From the beginning pages of the book when Leah and Marshall met, I felt the chemistry and the heat was there.

    You think romance, boy meets girl and bam they’re in love. But a special writer makes in believable with the development of the characters. The characters were given layers to show instead of tell the reader who they were. She was able to take her time with the physical aspect of the relationship and continue to develop the characters and their emotions. I felt there was no need to rush because when that moment came she was going to deliver and it was delivered beautifully.

    Leah goes on vacation and misfortune befalls her so she has to rely on Marshall’s help. She doesn’t want his help and he doesn’t want to help, so the stubbornness of both of them leads to some laugh out loud moments while they battle their past demons and their growing attraction to one another. During this time they’re given opportunities to find out about each other, what made them who they are, revealing fears, anticipation and believing that they deserve one another. Although the relationship with Leah and Marshall is less than a month old when the story ends the writer wrote it in a way to tie it up beautifully. She was also able to close the storyline without any unnecessary fillers that made it appear realistic.

    I would recommend this book, I would also like to hear more about Leah and Marshall in the future. I couldn’t get enough of them.

    I thought this was entertaining. It seemed as though there was a lot of inner monologues going on.

    It starts with Leah, who's plane has just landed in St. Lucia. She desperate for some peace and quiet and decides to hire a driver to take her to her hotel. As they go down a quiet road in the middle of the jungle, her driver stops, and robs her. Money, passport, everything.

    Marshall, comes out of the jungle towards the robbery in progress. Leah thinks he's an accomplice and figures she's done for. She's more than surprised when he actually helps her. She just doesn't understand why. Marshall's not really sure why he did either.

    The story follows to very jaded people, getting away from their lives and their problems.

    I enjoyed some of the banter between the two. I think I would have liked it better if it were longer and went a little deeper and took a little longer to resolve. To me that's a compliment to the author that I was sucked in enough to want more.

    This is the story of two people running away from the tragedies

    This is the story of two people running away from the tragedies in their lives. Leah was vacationing on St. Lucia and Marshall was living there. He was walking through the jungle just in time to save Leah from getting shot or worse while getting robbed by her chauffeur. With no I.D., no passport, and no money Leah is reluctantly in need of Marshall's assistance and that's when things start to get interesting.

    The storyline was good but I felt like I was reading in monotone. There was no excitement. Even when Leah was getting robbed it should have been a pulse pounding moment and it wasn't. I think the author wrote a good story but could have written certain scenes with a little more enthusiasm.

    One thing I must mention is that the character of Marshall was written perfectly! Amazingly sexy!

    Her vacation in paradise is not what Leah expected. She is robbe

    Her vacation in paradise is not what Leah expected. She is robbed of her money and passport. She is stranded! Marshall saves her and they go to his bar, the Rum Shack. He is an Alpha male who has a dark secret, but Leah has her own heartbreak. The area may be remote but is full of characters. Delores, a neighbor at a nearby plantation, worked with Marshall in his past life. She is the mother of his heart. What does her leaving mean for him? Leah gets no help from her family. How will she get money to get home. Marshall gives her a job and a place to stay. They learn to trust and care for each other. Their desire grows. Where will this lead? Sofia Harper has written a romantic story that tells of forgiveness and second chances. Marshall and Leah both are damaged. Guilt and hurt have control of them. Will they take this chance at happiness. Their story grabs your heart and you feel their pain and their bravery. I couldn't put this book down. The writing is beautiful and the story was wonderful.
