About the Author
Sophia Nash was born in Switzerland and 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, Sophia was an award-winning television producer for a CBS affiliate, a congressional speechwriter, and a nonprofit CEO. She lives in the Washington, D.C., suburbs with her husband and two children.
Sophia's novels have won twelve national awards, including the prestigious RITA® Award, and two spots on Booklist's "Top Ten Romances of the Year."

Michael Ranier has been a fugitive for years. He spent those years in the colonies (Virginia). He returned to England because he inherited property from a friend. En route to his new property (Brynlow) he found an angel dying in the blizzard. While tending to her injuries, with the help of a lad named Timmy, he does the worst thing possible - he fell in love with her. Too bad he could not possibly keep her.
***** I learned years ago that whenever I intend to begin a story written by Sophia Nash that I had better make sure the pizza has already been delivered. Otherwise the members of my family will have to eat cold cereal or sandwiches. This tale is no exception. The author begins with a strong willed lady in distress and then the tender roots of romance begin. From there the author builds tension that only seems to increase with each page turned. Within these pages you will experience pure romance at its very best! *****

It's been a while since I've read a regency romance, so instead of picking up my usual choice of paranormal à la mode, I reached for good old fashioned vanilla. Too bad it wasn't all that sweet. I totally enjoyed myself for the first 150 pages of this novel, and then it lost all that delicious tension and became bland like puréed baby food.
Beautiful, wealthy, aristocratic ladies who find themselves widowed while still in their twenties do NOT have problems finding new husbands. Sorry, I can't choke that premise down. Maybe if Nash had made Grace an impoverished countess, I could believe it, or maybe if she gave Grace the face of a pig. Instead Nash gave our heroine every gift imaginable and then asked us to believe the improbable, if not the impossible.
Michael has more secrets than a teenager who sneaks back home at 3 a.m. I don't want to blow the story for anyone, but trust me, once his `biggest' secret comes out, it's nearly as hard to choke down as Grace's predicament. It's a shame that the plot is like a bunch of hot air balloons ready to pop, because the relationship between Michael and Grace was plenty interesting in the beginning. I won't write off all of Nash's books, because with a more realistic premise, she can probably spin a good yarn.
But even though Grace was helpless to keep from falling under Michael's spell, I never found her to be weak or the sometimes jelly-kneed heroine we often get in a romance. I was also proud of the choices Grace made. Choices that even a modern woman could applaud.
All in all, I think Ms. Nash has done a wonderful job of creating a story that is extremely inviting and intensely invigorating. She has also managed to create a romance heroine in a period known for its meek, doormat females that is at once true to the period and also strong enough to speak clearly to modern women who are considerably more emancipated.

This series and author is on my must read (and reread) list. It was funny, steamy and even made me cry in places. Highly recommended!Published on June 23, 2012 by Cameravixen
I did not even finish this book. The premise was promising, but it just did not go anywhere. The dialogue and situations both seemed stilted. Read morePublished on June 23, 2011 by Bellini
