Where can I get myself a King?

Seriously. He might be my favorite so far and I never thought she would outdo Cross and Duncan West.

Read it. ( )

This book had everything I didn't know I needed in one book and I want to scream from the rooftops about how amazing it was. I'm slowly coming around to some historical romance thanks to Sarah MacLean and Julia Quinn. But Sarah is 100% my favorite.

Sophie is my now very favorite heroine from a historical romance novel and frankly, one of the best female MC's I've read lately period. She's intelligent, outspoken, funny and fiercely protective of her family. Frankly, she's everything you aren't "supposed" to be as a woman in her time. After standing up for her sister at a ball, Sophie ends up running away, yearning for the life she remembers before money became the end all be all of life.

Our hero, King, has quite the reputation for charming women and meets his match in Sophie. Full of witty banter, their relationship progresses, despite all odds and grows in to something neither one of them expected or wanted.

I had a smile on my face throughout much of the book and when I finished it, I was sad I would never read it again for the first time. If you've been on the fence about this one, I highly recommend you pick it up. I don't think you'll be sorry. ( )

What a fun book. :) I'm so happy I didn't give up after flouncing the horrible audiobook version. ( )

Not a lot of books make it onto my keeper shelf, but this one did. The dialogue between these two characters is fantastic, their adventures outrageous, and they had me cheering for them the whole way. I just cannot recommend this book enough. If you were a fan of Stephanie Laurens' original Cynsters, but would've loved a bit more humor, then get this book STAT! ( )

Book description
LADY SOPHIE'S SOCIETY SPLASH

The youngest of the infamous Talbot sisters scandalized society at the Liverpool Summer Soiree, striking her sister’s notoriously philandering husband and landing him backside-first in a goldfish pond. And we thought Sophie was the quiet one…

When she finds herself the target of very public aristocratic scorn, Sophie Talbot does what she must to escape the city and its judgment—she flees on the back of a carriage, vowing never to return to London…or to society. But the carriage isn’t saving her from ruin. It’s filled with it.

ROYAL ROGUE'S REIGN OF RAVISHMENT!


The Marquess of Eversley was espied descending a rose trellis—escaping an irate Earl and his once-future countess. No lady is safe from Eversley’s Engagement Ending Escapades!


Kingscote, the Marquess of Eversley, has never met a woman he couldn’t charm, a quality that results in a reputation far worse than the truth, a furious summons home, and a long, boring trip to the Scottish border. When King discovers stowaway Sophie, however, the trip becomes anything but boring.

WAR? OR MORE?

He thinks she’s trying to trick him into marriage. She wouldn’t have him if he were the last man on earth. But carriages bring close quarters, dark secrets, and unbearable temptation, and suddenly opposites are altogether too attractive…
