Review by Library Journal (2012-06-01)

After Miss Sophia Valentine is caught in a compromising position with James Hartley on the billiard table at the London home of her relatives, James proposes marriage, but isn't that the expected thing? Sophie hates being constrained by expectations. Better to leap into the unknown than to settle for less than her warrior hero. And so she does. Ten years later, nearing 30, the still unwed Sophie lives in her family home in Sydney Dovedale with her brother and his shrewish wife.

The scar across her face from her fall from the balustrade makes her a subject of derision among her neighbors and her family. In a fit of temper, she advertises in a local newspaper for a husband. Dark and mysterious Lazarus Kane arrives in the village in response to Sophie's advertisement. In truth, he has finally found his fallen angel from that night in London, the woman who saved him, and he has come to return the favor. Unfortunately for Lazarus, James has also seen the ad.

Verdict: Fresina (Seducing the Beast) has drawn her protagonists with impeccable skill, making readers root for our unconventional heroine and her equally flawed hero. Stylish, witty dialog entices as this seemingly odd couple discover a present and the possibility of a future that far outweigh their turbulent pasts. Romance fans will happily enjoy this valentine.
