This was a very nice surprise Fixsen has written a cracking unexpected gem of a book But I feel I must set out the major issue with the book right up front it's not very romantic Our Hh Sophy and Tom don't meet until 28% into the novel and even after that they don't spend too much time together The heroine spends time with another male character Alistair who intrigues me enormously and is the hero of the next book I believe Even though there's a lack of space dedicated to the romance I did buy it I knew this in the scene when Sophy sees Tom for the first time since their first meeting on the arms of another woman and is horrified It's a scene which conveys so much and it didn't matter that Sophy hadn't appeared to give much thought to Tom in the 30% or so of the book that had passed it was abundantly clear she had carried him with her the entire time The conflict at the heart of their romance was a little hard for me to buy Tom's anger about Sophy's lie didn't uite hang together but I still loved the way it worked out and it was good that it didn't just fall into a neat little resolution with Sophy's familyStill the paucity of the romance should probably have been a deal breaker for me I should have been tapping my foot waiting impatiently to get to the Main Event of the Hh But I wasn't because Fixsen has written a great book with some wonderful characters and simply put I wanted to know what was going to happen to everyone Sophy is the star of the show This is Sophy's book before Tom has his moments but Sophy the illegitimate plucky decent girl trying to make her way amongst the Ton in London is inherently endearing She deserves a happy ending and I was rooting for her Alongside Sophy Tom is almost her polar opposite the son of a merchant; his father's last hope for respectability and he wants nothing to do with any of it Then there's a whole cast of secondary characters who were all interesting in their own rights Alistair I have spoken about Jasper Sophy's bitter brother Sophy's father desperate for a relationship with a daughter born from a loving relationship and the only reminder of her mother he has left Sophy's step mother who could so easily have been a caricature of eeeevil but came to love this new addition to her household Tom's gaudy new money laden mother who cannot shake her roots After a while I realised that all the characters sort of lacked any bite with the exception of Alistair Perhaps everyone was a bit too good Fixsen sketches relationships and characters with an economy of words and a concision of vision which is admirable and readable Watching her husband silhouetted against the window she stitched with martial calm letting her displeasure fill the room like smoke Breaking the silence he returned to her bowing and bringing her hand to his lips You are very good to me Madam I know this is an imposition Thank you Lady Fairchild packed up her embroidery frame once he left She might have to take in the brat but she had driven William from his library letting him know he would pay for her complianceYou even get to know the very very secondary characters Euphemia Lynchem set the letter aside and dashed off notes to her particular friends miss Myra Bowles and Miss Honoria Sykes telling them the expected missive had arrived She could count on them to spread the word Her staff she economised unnecessarily limiting herself to a cook and a maid knew better than to touch the luncheon she would carry up to her brother Euphemia had convinced him he had a delicate stomach and that only she understood properly which morsels of food he could partake of and liveAnd then there's the writing some of which is just magnificent A thousand words choked him Eight made it out The came Charing Cross and Piccadilly and Mayfair and their destination a townhouse on Park Lane pinched in a tight row with the others The tall windows looked down on her disapprovingly This is a great description of West London there's a lot of space pinching and disapproving even now She stopped him with a light touch on his arm Had she thought the sun warm It was nothing to the warmth inside her Her mouth seemed made only for smiles her feet for nothing but dancing I thoroughly enjoyed this book If of Fixsen's gaze and her writing had focused on the Hh and she had injected the romance with some of what was apparent in the other aspects of the novel this would absolutely be five stars Definitely picking up the next in the series

Jured soaked and shivering she stumbles to a stranger’s door Tom a blunt edged merchant from a family of vulgar upstarts Mistaking Sophy for the genuine article he takes her in Sophy can’t resist twisting the truth Soon she’s caught in her own snare and it might just be a noose. I couldn't decide if it was a 3 or 4 star but I really like the writing and style of this book and did enjoy it even tho there were things that I wanted different This had some great characters I read the third book in this series first and so knew some of them already and reading about them was great I so enjoy that this is a family story and you have so much going on with each character It seems like everyone has a story to tell and they are all engaging and well done WHat I didn't like was how little the two main characters in the story interacted and had dialogue together this normally brings a story crashing down for me and I end up not liking the book so that says something for the talent of this writer The end scene was so great it was like the North and South scene at the train station; This is a clean regency with a mention of a grabbed bum and a nice bosom made by some of the rougher element in the story

Good English families all have a house in the country with a deer park a trout stream and an army of gardeners They should have a son and if it can be managed he should be handsome Cleverness isn’t important Daughters in limited uantities are fine so long as they are pretty Bastards are inconvenient and best ignored It's not a big problem unless you are one Unfortunately Sophy is Fairchild was yet another really good clean historical romance that I got for free from The characters where very well drawn and I couldn't help but love Sophy I did feel like Sophy and Tom's feelings for each other happened kind of sudden but the secret meetings and glances at each other were uite fun I just wish we had gotten a little of those in detail The book was mostly focused on Sophy but I felt the author did a great job of introducing us to Tom and fleshing his character out despite the limited amount of time we spend with him in the book This was such a sweet romance novel There is a companion novel Incognita about Alistair one of the other character's from this book that I immediately wanted to read and I ended up enjoying it almost just as much Review also posted at Writings of a Reader
