Come on Tour with Sophie and Dan… Visit the most romantic city in the world (or so they say)
Who says that the road towards true love is straight and even? Sophie is certainly discovering that it is anything but.
So she has finally found the man of her dreams! Well… she knows who he is, even though she hasn’t actually quite met him yet. But she misses her opportunity, and then her life goes crazy. Rock star and ex-fiancé, Dan, keeps getting in the way of her new romance—even if he is just trying to be helpful. A fire, an impromptu mini-trip with Dan, and a dreaded wedding later, Sophie is still struggling to meet the love of her life. Then, just as she is getting it together with her perfect man, best friend Rachel commits an act of unspeakable betrayal.
Sophie has had enough. Confused and distraught, she decides that it is time for radical change. Surprising herself and shocking her friends, she embarks on a secret journey and eventually gets her life back on track.
Sophie’s Run is now available in Kindle edition from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, and in Paperback edition from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. You can also get the paperback at Barnes & Noble, or download Sophie’s Run onto your Nook (coming soon).
Hi! My name is Nicky Wells, and I am the author of Sophie’s Run, Part 2 in the Rock Star Romance Trilogy. A little while ago, Sophie and Dan took a fateful and very romantic trip to Paris. It didn’t quite work out as planned, but they still talk about it even now, two years later. And they certainly both remember it, each in their own way….
Excerpt from Sophie’s Run: Sophie recalls ‘Paris’
I fiddled with my necklace. The necklace. The half-engagement-ring pendant with the beautiful sapphire that Dan had had made for me after I turned down his proposal on the plane back from Paris. He usually wore the other half—a kind of symbolic “we’re not really together, but we’ll always be together” gesture that summed up our friendship perfectly. To me, the pendant had become a good luck charm, and it reassured me now.
Excerpt from Sophie’s Run: Dan, too, remembers ‘Paris’ very clearly….
That was what she had told him in no uncertain terms in Paris. She was right, of course, but that hadn’t stopped him wanting, and regretting. So in secret, and without really being aware of it, he had formulated his cunning grand plan.
Arc de Triomphe
So… what happened to Sophie and Dan in Paris?
Jardin des Tuileries
Excerpt from Sophie’s Turn:
Suddenly I realized that we were in the Jardin des Tuileries. Far from deserted, it was heaving with people. The big Ferris wheel loomed at the back, every carriage brightly lit up. But in addition, there was some kind of Christmassy funfair going on. There were little stalls selling food, and the scent of crêpes and roasted almonds filled the air with a powerful sweet perfume. There were also stalls selling arts and crafts. And there were proper funfair entertainment contraptions, bumper cars, a small roller-coaster, and a merry-go-round.
“Let’s start with the Ferris wheel,” Dan suggested, eagerly pulling me forward. […]
“Sophie,” Dan eventually shouted.
“What?” I shouted back.
“Sophie, would you marry me?”
See? My Goodness, what fun they’ve had. If you’ve already read Sophie’s Turn, you’ll probably share their wistful memories. Come and join them on the next part of their journey over in Sophie’s Run when you have a moment!
