5.0 out of 5 stars Warm and fuzzy, 25 Sep 2013
Lucy Felthouse (Derbyshire, UK) - See all my reviews
I very much enjoyed Stranded with the Tycoon. I loved that the lead female was a history buff, and some of the references made me smile. The writing style is easy and engaging, the characters fun and likeable - despite their faults - their back stories worked for me, too. Overall, a very romantic tale which left me with a warm and fuzzy feeling. I look forward to more from Ms. Pembroke.

4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect winter romance to curl up with!, 17 Dec 2013
If you're looking for the perfect romance to curl up with on a cold winter's night, then look no further than Sophie Pembroke's fantastic debut novel for Harlequin Romance, Stranded with the Tycoon.

After a long and exhausting day attending a mind-numbingly dull conference, all Dr. Lucinda `Luce' Myles wants to do is go to her hotel room, take off her shoes and have a long soak in the bath. However, on her arrival at The Royal Court Hotel, Luce is stunned when the snooty blonde receptionist behind the desk tells her that they cannot find her booking! As if trying to find somewhere to sleep for the night isn't bad enough, Luce has to contend with a barrage of phone calls and text messages from her hopeless family members who are all expecting her to organize the perfect Christmas for them! But just when she thinks that things cannot possibly get any worse in waltzes a face from the past Luce would much rather forget - Ben Hampton, who just happens be the owner of The Royal Court Hotel!

Luce and Ben had been at University together and they couldn't have been more different. Ben had been the life and soul of the party. Laid back, charming and drop dead gorgeous, Ben had every single female on campus lusting after him - including Luce! However, Ben was more interested in her flatmate than in her and had spent most of the time teasing her for always having her nose in a book and for being unable and unwilling to let her hair down and have some fun. Although many years have passed since the last time the two clapped eyes on one another, Luce immediately realizes that despite the designer suit and bulging business portfolio, Ben Hampton is still the same charismatic playboy who had broken every girl's heart at university. He is the last man Luce wants to be beholden to, but when Ben offers to share his suite with her for the night, the workaholic historian has no got other choice but to accept his offer.

Luce is nothing like the women Ben is usually attracted to. She is buttoned up, restrained and takes everything way too seriously. Yet, Ben cannot help but be intrigued by her. He is sure that beneath her reserved exterior lies a passionate and exciting woman whom he cannot wait to get to know. As luck would have it, the two of them end up stranded together because of a snow storm giving Ben the opportunity he has been waiting for to breach the walls which Luce has built around herself and knock down the defenses which she had constructed around her heart.

Falling madly in love had not been part of Luce's plans, but the more time she spends with Ben, the more she realizes that she has lost her heart to him all over again. Will she find the courage to admit the truth about her feelings for him? Or will Ben's reluctance to commit end up spoiling this last chance of happiness for them?

Sophie Pembroke has written a heart-warming, tender and gripping contemporary romance which I found impossible to put down. Written with plenty of panache, elan and sensitivity, this charming romantic tale about two polar opposites finding love when they least expected it is sure to tug at your heartstrings and bring a tear to your eye.

Sophie Pembroke's characters spring to life from the moment they arrive on the page and you are sure to love smart, intelligent and perceptive Luce and fall in love with suave, sophisticated and sexy Ben!

Stranded with The Tycoon is an outstanding tale that I highly recommend and I'll make sure to look out for more wonderful stories from Sophie Pembroke's very talented pen!
