LADY SOPHIE'S CHRISTMAS WISH
Lady Sophie Windham, who considers herself on the shelf, has schemed to get several days to herself in her family's London mansion, before she must travel to Kent for a family Christmas. Unfortunately, one of the maids deserts her baby in Sophie's care, and Sophie, who knows nothing of babies, is forced to accept the aid of a kind gentleman, Wilhelm "Vim" Lucifer Charpentier. Vim, who is to one day inherit his uncle's estate, has been traveling abroad for years and has returned to help set the estate to rights. Unfortunately, some bad memories have made Vim reluctant to return to the estate, and a baby in need and a snowstorm are good excuses to delay traveling to the estate in Kent.
LADY SOPHIE'S CHRISTMAS WISH is a heart-warming, regency romance with endearing characters. Let me just state, upfront, that I love the characters of Vim and Sophie. They are made for each other, and the fact, that they are thrown together and, slowly, fall for each other, made it all the more delicious. Sophie is the sensible one with the heart of gold, who takes in strays. Vim is a great understated hero--not the usual over the top alpha-- but he still can hold his own, if need be. Vim can't stand to hear a baby cry, which makes me love him all the more.
All in all, LADY SOPHIE'S CHRISTMAS WISH is the perfect feel-good, sigh-inducing romance read for the holidays--or anytime for that matter.
NOTE: I was given this book in return for an impartial review.
