Bestselling romance novelist Erin Nicholas has her fingers on the pulse of what a girl wants—at least in terms of steamy romantic fiction—and Totally His is a bouyant love story with a refreshing maturity at its core.
Local theater-owner Sophie lost her mother when she was only two, leaivng her under the care of her manipulative father, Frank. Frank bounced his young daughter from stepmother to stepmother, women he used for sex, free food, cable TV and a warm place to live. With this turbulent upbringing, it’s no wonder that Sophie has difficulties with trust and love. She is sure that every good thing that comes her way in life will come to a swift end.
Responsible, self-assured cop Finn Kelly was raised by a single mother after his father’s death. Though the extended Kelly clan can be loud and sometimes cloying, they have given Finn absolute confidence in himself and reinforced his worthiness to be loved. He adores his mother and is both a protector and a “fixer,” traits which draw him to Sophie.
While respondng to a a fire at the local theater, Finn spots a young woman in hot pink underwear running back inside the burning building. More than a little curious, Finn sees it as his duty to find the girl and rescue her. He carries her out of the building and doesn’t stop wanting to protect her.
Finn tries to fix everything in her life, but Sophie wants more from him than that. She wants him to love her for herself, and to trust that she is mature enough to manage her life. Will Finn keep trying to come up with a solution to change Sophie’s difficult relationship with her incorrigible dad, or can he learn something from Sophie, too?
In Totally His, Erin Nicholas has woven a sweet and sexy tale set against the backdrop of a lively community theater and a noisy, rollicking Irish pub that readers won’t want to leave behind.
