Reviewed by Martina Bexte
ophie Fortin knows full well she's forbidden to speak to the scandalously devilish Lord Jack. Their families have been mortal enemies for generations. She's determined to go through with an arranged marriage; it's the only way to get her family out from under their always generous, but high-handed dowager aunt's thumb. Still, when Jack insists on pressing forward with a breathtaking seduction, even Sophie can't resist his pirate-like enthusiasm.
ack's lovely cousin Skye has at last managed to coerce him into setting his romantic cap for Miss Sophie. Jack isn't ready to settle down any time soon (what would be the fun in that?) but one passionate kiss from Sophie changes his mind. He decides to play Romeo and casts Sophie as his Juliet, determined to save the sensual, fun-loving young woman from what he knows would be a boring match to a stuffy old duke.
hat a fun read! Jack and Sophie light up the pages as they dance around each other, and then fall headlong into their own version of one of the Bard's most beloved tales. It doesn't take long for their flirtation to become much more than just a game. Crisp dialogue, various plot twists, and even a few secrets keep you turning the pages of
Lover Be Mine
