Product Description

About the Author

Sophia Nash was born in Switzerland and raised in France and the United States, but says her heart resides in Regency England. Her ancestor, an infamous French admiral who traded epic cannon fire with the British Royal Navy, is surely turning in his grave.

Before pursuing her long-held dream of writing, Sophia was an award-winning television producer for a CBS affiliate, a congressional speechwriter, and a nonprofit CEO. She lives in the Washington, D.C., suburbs with her husband and two children.

Sophia's novels have won twelve national awards, including the prestigious RITA(tm)Award, and two spots onBooklist's "Top Ten Romances of the Year."

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Grace Sheffey, Countess of Sheffield, is a widow at the young age of only twenty-seven. In the past twelve months she has been jilted by two fiancés and London's upper elite are having a delightful time chewing up and pitting out her reputation. No longer capable of holding her head up high or maintaining an unconcerned image, she flees London. Grace intended to return to the Isle of Mann, where she spent her childhood. Instead she found herself stuck in a blizzard when the carriage tipped over. Her driver and traveling companion go for help. It is only then Grace realizes she is injured, losing blood, and quickly freezing to death.

Michael Ranier has been a fugitive for years. He spent those years in the colonies (Virginia). He returned to England because he inherited property from a friend. En route to his new property (Brynlow) he found an angel dying in the blizzard. While tending to her injuries, with the help of a lad named Timmy, he does the worst thing possible - he fell in love with her. Too bad he could not possibly keep her.

***** I learned years ago that whenever I intend to begin a story written by Sophia Nash that I had better make sure the pizza has already been delivered. Otherwise the members of my family will have to eat cold cereal or sandwiches. This tale is no exception. The author begins with a strong willed lady in distress and then the tender roots of romance begin. From there the author builds tension that only seems to increase with each page turned. Within these pages you will experience pure romance at its very best! *****

" Love With The Perfect Scoundrel is sexy and sensual; a lush Historical Romance that sizzles off the page!" BCM March 19 2009
By Bobbie Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Love With The Perfect Scoundrel had me at hello. Seriously though, I was instantly drawn into the story and enjoyed every single minute of it. I have read hundreds of Historical Romance novels from the Victorian era and I have to say that THIS book, is in my top 10! With a story and plot that is more creative then many I have read, the Author takes advantage of the weather, social strictures (or lack there of) and with a genuine humanity, creates the distressing and ultimately delicious situations that Grace and Michael find themselves in. I immediately felt the heart-pounding attraction between the main characters and this beautiful, sensual love story. Though it is set in the Victorian era, this story had a fresh feel that amused and entertained as much as it titillated. The Author has an exceptional talent for writing and her distinctive story writing talents will, if they have not already, set her apart from many of her peers. This delightful book left me with a big smile on my face and a light feeling in my heart. It is just what I have been waiting for; kudos to you Sophia Nash.
I very highly recommend this book!

(10 out of 10 Diamonds) - Absolutely LOVED it!!

First-half works, second-half had me working to finish it. Too bad. March 29 2009
By Mrs. Baumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Plot Summary: A man with a past, Michael Ranier, travels from the Colonies to England to claim an inheritance left by a friend. On the road to his modest new home, he encounters a lady freezing in the snow. The Countess of Sheffield was fleeing London's wicked gossip mongers when her coach overturned. Michael takes her in, stitches her wounds, and climbs into bed buck-naked with her, because that's the only way to keep her warm. Huh. Grace's aristocratic friends track her down, and Michael has a million reasons why he won't make her an honest woman. Since this is the third time Grace has been jilted, she doesn't take it too well.

It's been a while since I've read a regency romance, so instead of picking up my usual choice of paranormal à la mode, I reached for good old fashioned vanilla. Too bad it wasn't all that sweet. I totally enjoyed myself for the first 150 pages of this novel, and then it lost all that delicious tension and became bland like puréed baby food.

Beautiful, wealthy, aristocratic ladies who find themselves widowed while still in their twenties do NOT have problems finding new husbands. Sorry, I can't choke that premise down. Maybe if Nash had made Grace an impoverished countess, I could believe it, or maybe if she gave Grace the face of a pig. Instead Nash gave our heroine every gift imaginable and then asked us to believe the improbable, if not the impossible.

Michael has more secrets than a teenager who sneaks back home at 3 a.m. I don't want to blow the story for anyone, but trust me, once his `biggest' secret comes out, it's nearly as hard to choke down as Grace's predicament. It's a shame that the plot is like a bunch of hot air balloons ready to pop, because the relationship between Michael and Grace was plenty interesting in the beginning. I won't write off all of Nash's books, because with a more realistic premise, she can probably spin a good yarn.

The Perfect Romance March 24 2009
By Bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I just finished reading "Love with the Perfect Scoundrel" and I think it's Ms. Nash's finest work yet! From the very first page you are swept into Grace's stormy life and into the arms of the hero right along with her.

But even though Grace was helpless to keep from falling under Michael's spell, I never found her to be weak or the sometimes jelly-kneed heroine we often get in a romance. I was also proud of the choices Grace made. Choices that even a modern woman could applaud.

All in all, I think Ms. Nash has done a wonderful job of creating a story that is extremely inviting and intensely invigorating. She has also managed to create a romance heroine in a period known for its meek, doormat females that is at once true to the period and also strong enough to speak clearly to modern women who are considerably more emancipated.

Not my favorite of this series... March 16 2009
By cb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed the first part of the book when Grace, Countess of Sheffield was healing from accident with Micheal (with mysteries past). Then all the old characters from Widows Club previous showed up and took over the book. At time I wished I had read the books back to back to really enjoy the nuances of the characters. This book held my action but I am glad I borrowed it from the Library.

Check out the whole Widows Club series; A Dangerous Beauty (Widows Club, Book 1) , The Kiss (Widows Club, Book 2). I just check online you will next guess the characters in Book 4 due out 2010 Elizabeth Ashburton and Rowland Manning (the villian in this book...can't wait)
