Description

“Sophie Irwin is an exciting and original voice. She's a must-buy author for me.”―Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Carrie Soto Is Back
Internationally bestselling author Sophie Irwin brings us another delightful, escapist historical romance, led by an audacious heroine who has suddenly inherited a fortune—but it has strings attached…

When shy Miss Eliza Balfour married the austere Earl of Somerset, twenty years her senior, it was the match of the season—no matter that he was not the husband Eliza wanted.
Now, ten years later, Eliza is widowed. Suddenly, she is left titled, rich, and, for the first time in her life, utterly in control of her own future.  She’s always lived by society’s conventions, but now, Eliza has resolved to do as she wants.  And what she wants is to head to Bath with her cousin Margaret, pursue painting, learn to drive, and flirt with Bath’s most alluring new resident, the infamous Lord Melville.
But when the ripples of Eliza’s behavior reach her late husband’s nephew—who broke Eliza’s heart, years ago—Eliza will learn that freedom does not come without consequences. The only way to ensure she can keep her fortune is to avoid all scandal—but where’s the fun in that?

fullDescription
“Sophie Irwin is an exciting and original voice. She's a must-buy author for me.”―Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Carrie Soto Is Back
Internationally bestselling author Sophie Irwin brings us another delightful, escapist historical romance, led by an audacious heroine who has suddenly inherited a fortune—but it has strings attached…

When shy Miss Eliza Balfour married the austere Earl of Somerset, twenty years her senior, it was the match of the season—no matter that he was not the husband Eliza wanted.
Now, ten years later, Eliza is widowed. Suddenly, she is left titled, rich, and, for the first time in her life, utterly in control of her own future.  She’s always lived by society’s conventions, but now, Eliza has resolved to do as she wants.  And what she wants is to head to Bath with her cousin Margaret, pursue painting, learn to drive, and flirt with Bath’s most alluring new resident, the infamous Lord Melville.
But when the ripples of Eliza’s behavior reach her late husband’s nephew—who broke Eliza’s heart, years ago—Eliza will learn that freedom does not come without consequences. The only way to ensure she can keep her fortune is to avoid all scandal—but where’s the fun in that?

        May 1, 2023
        A widow gets caught in a love triangle in Irwin’s light and enchanting sophomore historical romance (after A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting). Before the start of the book, Lady Eliza’s parents forced her to jilt her first love, Oliver Courtney, and marry his uncle, the Earl of Somerset. After her husband dies, Eliza is finally free—but his will stipulates that she will lose her inheritance if she ever brings scandal to the family name, something that will be arbitrated by the new earl, Oliver. Eliza hopes that they will finally be together again but worries that Oliver will use his power to seek revenge. To get away from watchful eyes and experience new things, she and her cousin travel to Bath, where she meets Lord Melville, a famous author with an infamous reputation. Despite this, Eliza is drawn to Melville’s adventurous, nonjudgmental nature, and soon finds herself torn between the familiar and the new. Though Eliza’s love interests are polar opposites, it’s easy to understand what she sees in each of them, and Irwin does a fantastic job making even the characters’ flaws appealing. It’s a fun, unexpected ride from city ballrooms through country gardens, with a diverse cast, witty repartee, and plenty of laughter to go along with the love.
