For review

This was slowbuilding romance where they learned to know each other, become friends and then more. They talked a lot, and with these two I did believe that they knew each other, loved each other and could have a happy life together.

Fancy's mother took in bastards for money, and they all made splendid matches and made lots of money. Now they want Fancy to do the same, but she is happy in her bookshop. Still, she will have her season.

Matthew's wife tricked him into marriage. Then she died, and now there is a letter in the paper from her. A final revenge that will have all mamas and daughters flocking to him. So he goes to another part of town, get a flat and tries to be normal.

They meet, they become friends, attraction builds. But he is weary cos he thinks all she wants is a title. And of course she does not know he is an Earl. He really should know her better though, she would never trick anyone. All she wants is to please her family.

I must admit that the end went on forever. There were like 10 endings. I like a good conclusion, but more and more come. Not that I complain, but still it was strange how the book never wanted to end, lol.

A good narrator. Distinct voices. She got the tone of the book. I keep hearing good things about her fantasy narrations, but that's just me to try her romance then :D And she was great

Though born out of wedlock, Fancy Trewlove is determined to fulfill her mother’s wish that she marry into nobility. Fancy’s keen intellect and finishing school manners make her the perfect wife for any gentleman - if he’s willing to overlook her scandalous lineage. But Fancy’s plans are thrown into chaos when an intriguing commoner begins visiting her bookshop - and she finds herself unable to stop thinking about him.

He’s looking to escape his title....

Widowed just a year ago, the reclusive Matthew Sommersby, Earl of Rosemont, has been besieged by women hoping to become his next wife. Desperate for anonymity, he sheds Society life to search for the peace that eludes him. Fancy’s shop is his one refuge, until the night their passion erupts into a kiss that nearly leads to her ruin - and leaves both longing for much more.

Together, they discover an unlikely love....

As Fancy finds herself torn between her family’s expectations and her growing feelings for Matthew, secrets are exposed - secrets that force Fancy to question if she can trust her heart’s desire...
