A favorite Regency romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens…
Jack Lester seeks the perfect bride—one who is attractive and kind but who also loves him in spite of his wealth. Which is why he keeps this trifling detail hidden. But when Sophie Winterton enters his life, believing he must marry into wealth to run his family's estate, how will he convince her that she is the woman he desires—and that he can be the husband she deserves?

A lady of expectations
I bought this book based on my past positive experiences with Stephanie Laurens' novels. This one failed to hold up Laurens' legacy due to its lackluster plotline and heroine, Sophia. Love interest, Jack Lester, provides a desperately needed injection of spice and attraction, but ultimately cannot save this predictable and trite story. Sophia is one of those protagonists that you feel like shaking and saying stop being intentionally stupid in order to fill your author's quota of novels. Save your nickel and don't purchase this one, but still reach out to Ms. Laurens in the hope that you fall upon one of her other novels that truly reflect her gift for crafting multi-dimensional characters.
