Lady Sophia's Rescue

Kindle Romance

Author - Cheryl Bolen
Price   - $0.99

Lady Sophia's Rescue
Lady Sophia enters her new bridegroom’s country estate and he begins to whisper in her ear what await her later that night. Lady Sophia recognizes she has made an appalling blunder. There’s only one thing she can think of. She must flee.

On-the-run she is rescued by the handsome William Birmingham who believes she’s called Isadore. He’s one of the richest men in England, but she takes him for a common criminal. Since she’d rather be dead than wed to her despicable bridegroom, Sophia pretends to be Isadore and take her chances with the provocative William. But how could she have known that her deception would bring the gallant William into danger from the depraved man she married? How could she have known her mysterious rescuer would ignite passions she never knew she had?

This is a rather unsophisticated story and it is sometimes a struggle to keep turning pages. Cheryl Bolen does a reasonable job with description, and romantic conflict, but at times some of the scenes seemed a bit unconvincing. It is a light, quick read.

Baby Bonanza

Kindle Romance

Author - Maureen Child
Price - $0.00

Baby Bonanza The disclosure that his affair with Jenna produced twin boys was almost impossible to grasp. Nick never thought of himself as the domesticated type, yet now that fatherhood has been thrust upon him, he is determined to give his sons his name. However, Jenna isn't about to let him back into her life... at least not without three little words that Nick never used.

Baby Bonanza is a feel good story. The writer depicts scenes that make you feel you are there.

If all you want from a book is to sit, relax and not challenge your intellect then Baby Bonanza is just the book. Let’s face it, sometimes, that’s all you need. However, if you favour a convoluted, tear-jerker, pick another book.
