“A sweet and fulfilling snowbound romance.” −Publisher’s Weekly
“Graceful writing enlivened with plenty of dry wit, a charming cast of secondary characters, and a breathtakingly sexy romance between a perfectly matched couple make Bowman’s latest addition to her Regency-set Playful Brides series another winner.” −Booklist
Bestselling author Valerie Bowman returns this fall with the highly anticipated sixth installment in her Regency-set Playful Brides series.
In THE LEGENDARY LORD (St. Martin’s Paperbacks, November 1, 2016, $7.99), a fan-favorite bachelor finally gets his own story that readers have been clamoring for. Add in a blizzard and a sexy Scottish setting, and this twist on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion is sure to be a hit!
THE MAKING OF A LEGEND…
When Christian Forester, Viscount Berkeley, flees the stuffy ballrooms of London for his Scottish hunting lodge, the last thing he expects to find ensconced before his fire is an incredibly beautiful woman. But the plight of lovely young Sarah Highgate, who has run away from an unwanted betrothal, inspires an eminently practical exchange. He’ll safeguard her reputation with the town while she advises him how to best attract a proper bride…
As the undisputed belle of the season, Sarah has enchanted plenty of suitors. Still, she isn’t interested in marriage, especially not to the pompous bore her father has chosen for her. But her hasty escape seems reckless now that she’s estranged from her family and has no one to count on besides Christian. Turning the luckless lord into such a catch has another unplanned consequence for Sarah: Has he run away with her heart?

Valerie now lives in Jacksonville with her family including her two rascally dogs. When she’s not writing, she keeps busy reading, traveling, or vacillating between watching crazy reality TV and PBS.

I love Valerie’s Playful Bride Series!!!
It is as simple as that. This entire series in this reader’s opinion is not to be missed.
The scheming plots and antics of Lucy Hunt (Duchess of Claringdon), Cassandra (Countess of Swifdon) and Jane carry over into this story to make it riotously funny at times. Throw in a caretaker, Mr. Fergus and his little dog Fergus II ( description makes you believe he is a Scottish Terrier) to top off this very funny delightful story by a favorite author. It is impossible not to become totally engaged with the characters and storyline.
This romance has more of a sweet, funny plot than a sex filled one. You want to laugh more than cry. If you like your historical romance filled with humor rather than torrid sex scenes this is most definitely a book I feel you will enjoy.
I gave this new “Playful Brides” Book a solid 5 star rating for storyline and characterization. As always I look forward to more by this author.
