Despite the simple plot and the lack of high tension, I still enjoyed this lighthearted romance. Naughty times are almost always guaranteed when the hero and heroine are snowed in together in a remote cabin.

Val was an easy-going hero with a good sense of humor. Sorrel was a very sensitive heroine who tried my patience a little. I liked her, but felt she should have outgrown her childhood fear a while ago. (view spoiler)

Very romantic angsty love story.
After reading quite a lot of heavy vintage HP's this one came as a real treat. It's fun, light hearted and the dialogue between the h and H kept me chuckling.

The H's family is expecting a visit from a distant Australian family member named Val. Everyone assumes that Val is a woman and due to circumstances they send Sorrel, the h, to stay with her at their uncle's uninhabited farmhouse.

Sorrel is alone and waiting at the farm when a surprise snowstorm hits bring with it Val. Only Val is not Vale

I will probably donate this book. The female character was too weak-minded and willed for my taste.

3.5 stars I enjoyed the story. I gave it a 3.5 as there wasn’t too much tension and angst (although the penultimate scene was a bit heart-wrenching whew! There’s your tension/angst right there! ) The story was not too convoluted. H was a sweetheart in that he wasn’t like other vintage alpha H’s Im used too hahaha. Other than him being rich and successful he wasn’t really mean or insulting or rapey to the h (although he was a tiny bit alpha I guess since he was doing what he did for h’s (and his) ...more

It was almost a 4- giving it a 3.5. Some of this was just silly as a back story and the heroine is basically unrealistic. However, she's still likeable and there was plenty of hot build-up tension. All that buildup and small details when it happens, but this seems typical with Harlequins. The hero is attractive enough and I like his joking, confident personality. He won't let the fiance part die though and harps too much on it. Personally I would have been extremely irritated with my family at t ...more

Love Penny Jordan. 4.5 There was a small part I felt uncomfortable with. so not a five. However The hero was great and The Heroine finally got some moxie . Yes it was probably somewhat far affected but fantasy can be good.

Penny Jordan most is király(nő) volt, mint mindig. Ismét sikerült egy olyan történetet alkotnia, ami a romantika mellett pörgős és humoros is volt (nagyon jókat szórakoztam, ahogy Val kitartóan makacsul és kedvesen pimaszul próbálta letörni azt a bizonyos falat ;)).

Once again another great one from Penny. I re-read this one, as I originally read it a few years back. I still liked it! I just can't get over why anyone would get engaged to a person who doesn't have their whole heart.

Another light, easy to read story. Likable character. Even though it is not a Christmas book, the winter setting and the feel good story makes it an appropriate book to read at this time.

I've read so many Penny Jordan romances now and yet it never ceases to amaze me that a woman who had 185 novels published within the somewhat restrictive requirements of the Mills and Boon publishing house should manage to come up with new and original storylines every time.

"Valentine's Night" is a wonderful example of this. The story relates how Sorrel, engaged to be married to the somewhat insipid Andrew, gets conned into looking after her cousin "Val" for a few nights. Due to lack of accommod

This was not what I was expecting out of this book but it was pretty good.

I usually love Penny Jordan's books. But this was unrealistic. I found myself shaking my head a couple of times and even found myself rolling my eyes. Conversations were kinda weird and unreal.
