Three men. Three very different relationships.
Jonathan, the illustrator who touches her soul yet remains a stranger who might or might not love her.
Bradley, her father’s wealthy protégé who doesn’t touch her soul but offers her marriage and security.
Or Max, a man who attracts her, supports her and her dreams, but carries secrets he won’t share.
What does she want most?
Stranger? Security? Secrets?
Which man will be perfect for her? Her soul mate? The one? Which man will inspire her to say, “He’s my imperfect Valentine?”

“I loved it. No one’s perfect. The main characters are flawed but loveable. I sat down and read this straight through. The dilemma Amanda finds herself in is real life. She questions her decisions, her choices, her judgment. She’s totally relatable. The ‘bag’ lady is a delight. Max is yummy in so many ways. Amanda had a pretty cool promotions idea for her store. I would have liked to read about her other promo ideas…and attended her Promo event. =)
I could go on and on about all the things I like about this delightful story, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. Pour a cup of hot chocolate curl up in your favorite chair and settle in for a sweet, feel-good story.” ~L.Root

She also supplies a great element of suspense and will leave one guessing how it will all turn out. The story is about finding the right relationship where one can be honest, supportive and respectful after past relationships only left pain and suspicion. In addition, separating from ones mother is not easy, but this story shows how it can be done with respect and honesty.
