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 she?

Our customer reviews

I haven't read a romance book in a while and I have never read this author before, so I thought I would give it a try. It was really cute, although I found myself wishing it would hurry up and end. I think romance novels should be no longer than 300 pages in length. If I ever get the chance I will probably read a book from this author again. Sophie was fun, and exactly how I like my heroines to be, spunky and Though at times the way she acted you would have thought her to be younger than almost thirty. Though a part of my can not fault her for climbing trees as I myself am a tom boy of sorts. It just seem to not befit the person she was trying to be, though every time she tried to be proper she always seemed to do something improper, like send an ad off in the paper for a husband. Still I did like Miss Sophie Valentine. Lazarus Kane, is pretty much a common man disguised as a gent. He had fell in love with Sophie a long time ago when he seen her on a balcony. He was only around fourteen at the time and he has been looking for her ever since. He has had a rough life but in the end it all led him back to his balcony angel. He is sexy, charming and wicked. You can't help but love him! James Hartley is a scandrel if there ever was one, pretending to be so sweet and proper behind his gentleman's clothing! I think he was mainly put there just to ruffle Kane's feathers a bit when it came to Sophie. I despised this man. Sophie has been known for her indiscretions, she is known around town as a falling woman. So one of the things that really made me mad through out the whole novel was the fact that Sophie didn't stand up for herself more. She could stand up to Kane, push off James Hartley, but when it came to the gossip in town about her she just let it happen. She even let her family talk about her with her right there in the room. That drove me crazy, I guess I would have never made it back in those Over all I felt that the novel could have wrapped up a little quicker as I started to get tired of the back and forth seduction between the two main characters. But besides that I really did enjoy the novel and I liked the two main characters, I really enjoyed Sophie's Aunt Finn as she was a riot! If you enjoy romances then I would recommend you give The Most Improper Miss Sophie Valentine a try and judge it for more
