(Terra's Thoughts) Be careful what you wish for as it just may come true especially when you advertise for it. This story is quite cute. It's a bit slower romance than some but if you like the story of a young lady who just can't seem to do anything right but embarrass her family and cause scandal without batting her pretty little eyelashes then this is for you.
Sophie Valentine is rebellious, speaks her mind without thinking of the consequences and just seems to be in the right place at the wrong time no matter what. Now that her long ago scandal has been all but forgotten brings about another made from a rash decision in anger that may just bite her in the behind. Who would of thought one person could have so much bad luck?
Lazarus Kane is tall, dark and handsome and comes to town with hopes of answering an inquiry about a woman looking for a husband. He lands in a very small town with an overly large population of gossip mongers that are drooling at the mouth for even a tidbit to fuel the fire so to speak. Will he be able to handle the gossip mongers along with one very stubborn, opinionated woman and her surly brother and self possessed sister-in-law?
A cute romance but not too much action. Lots of ole fashioned country traditions and and one tempting woman from the past make this a story worth reading. It's just a cute laid back tale that is sure to please a true romance seeker.
