Sophie Randal loves her husband Jason more than anything. When her bitch step-sister tells her that Jason only married her out of pity, she leaves before he can’t her worse when he leaves. When he tracks her down and drags her home, she decides she is going to find and do everything in her power to make him fall in love with her. But her step-sister wants Jason’s money and step-mommy dearest will do whatever she can to put wedge between the couple. Good thing Jason refuses to let Sophie go.
I read this book a while back and when I saw it in my library, I just couldn’t help myself. I know I have my oversized reading list but I have been dying to read an Elizabeth Lennox book again, so here we are.
I really love this story but unfortunately the star rating won’t be showing that today with all the inconsistency I came across as I read. Funny thing though, I don’t remember all those editing issues the first two times I read this book hmmm. So now I have a few questions I need answered like how can Sophie be walking around a room when she just sat down? Why did she say she can’t drive when at the beginning she was in possession of a work truck and working alone? And what is the name of the Randal’s driver Tim or Michael? There a few typos and Jason even had a brief sex change and some missing quotation marks. Please, don’t get me wrong, I do like The Billionaire’s Runaway Bride but I think that Elizabeth could do better in the editing department.
Book Cover Rating
The cover is nice but Sophie has red hair so explain how the bomb bombshell fits into The Billionaire’s Runaway Bride.
Sophie Randal had loved her husband, but had to run away from him. He was simply too wonderful and she loved him too much. Unfortunately, she knew that he’d married her only out of pity after her father died and her heart ached to be so in love with a man who barely tolerated her.
She just forgot one little detail about her husband. He didn’t like to lose. Anything.
Jason Randal had searched everywhere for Sophie after she’d left him. He couldn’t believe it when he found her in a tiny village working as a gardener! Bringing her back was easy enough. The real challenge was showing her that he loved her.
Could Sophie trust in herself and Jason’s love? Was she strong enough to be the woman he saw underneath her shy exterior? She certainly wanted to try!
