After two disastrous engagements in which both her fiancés jilted her for other women, Grace Sheffield tried to reinvent herself socially and failed miserably. This left Grace no other choice (or so she thought) but to flee London and the gossip-fueled ton. Grace’s journey to a quiet new life of social obscurity in Scotland ends quickly, though, when an unexpected blizzard and a carriage accident leave her stranded in the Yorkshire countryside. Fortunately, before she can completely freeze to death, Grace is rescued by Michael Rainer, a former blacksmith who had recently inherited a nearby farm. Stranded at Michael’s farm, Grace not only discovers new skills she never knew she had, but she also finds herself slowly and irrevocably falling in love with Michael. Nash deftly infuses the superbly crafted, deliciously sensual romance between Grace and Michael with a generous soupçon of subtle wit, and the latest irresistible addition to her Wicked Widows historical Regency series is an exquisitely emotional, perfectly satisfying romance.
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."
I waited a long time to buy this book, because I wasn't sure I liked the character, Grace, but I definitely had a change of heart.Published 21 months ago by Michelle Bowen

I really liked this book. It was a nice end to the series.It's a typical historical romance though. Still enjoyable though.Published on December 13, 2012 by Saby2006
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
First half was good, yes. But then the second half was yawn city. And Grace was kind of...well, dumb. I didn't like her in Georgina's story. Read morePublished on April 15, 2011 by Not Telling
'Love with the Perfect Scoundrel' was a rather variable book. Our heroine, Grace Sheffey, seemed initially rather a weak and uninteresting woman, running away from two broken... Read morePublished on July 7, 2009 by Helen Hancox
