Sophie’s Voice by Helen Hardt
This was a very hot read, set in a historical period (1800s), with a lady of the peerage and a theatre owner/performer. He's worldly and experienced; she's innocent, shy, and naive. Their attraction is palpable and every encounter will get you hot - TMI, it got me hot. There's also suspense, drama, and subterfuge. It's a fun weekend read that will keep you on the edge of your seat, possibly one-handed reading material. [February 2016]
If you like the Phantom of the Opera, you’ll like the little homage Helen writes into this hot historical story about a shy woman with the voice of an angel and the theater owner who falls in love with her. Then we have the added suspense of someone trying to make our heroine, Sophie, their private singer forever. Both Sophie and Zach try to fight their attraction to each other, but each encounter becomes hotter and goes further. And if you like a good spanking, so does Sophie. [February 2016]

Lady Sophie MacIntyre has the voice of an angel, but due to her timid nature, no one ever hears it. After losing a bet to her conniving sister, Sophie auditions for the new musicale at the Regal Theatre run by handsome actor Zachary Newland. Though distracted by Zach’s elegant masculinity and her own nerves, she sings well and earns a role in the production. Zach is a confirmed bachelor, and his taste in women leans toward the glamorous and uninhibited…until he meets the demure Sophie. Her delicate soprano and understated beauty captivate him. She responds to his inappropriate kiss, but quickly dismisses the heat between them. She’s a lady of the peerage, after all, and not one to associate with a rake like him. Zach, however, is not so easily dissuaded. He gets what he wants, and he intends to help Sophie find her true voice…in more ways than one.
