About the Author
Lorraine Heath wrote her first story at seven, and it involved a fisherman who fell in love with a mermaid. She has since moved on to writing about sexy cowboys and dashing English lords--sometimes, cleverly, within the same book. Publishers Weekly says she is a ""master of her craft."" She is, indeed, and along with being a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, she has won the Rita Award and three RT Reviewers' Choice Awards, as well as the RT Career Achievement Award.--This text refers to the audioCD edition.
"...a lively, heartfelt, entertaining read.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“…the fifth superbly rendered addition to RITA Award-winning Heath’s Sins for All Seasons series is new proof of her gift for transforming insightful characterization, solid storytelling, boundless passion, and bold sensuality into sigh-worthy romances.” (Booklist) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

During my first read by Lorraine Heath I was immediately entranced by these Trewloves, and while I remembered learning a different story for Fancy’s father than the one she was told about, I was curious to know how will she respond or not to her family’s expectations.
So far I have only read Aiden’s story, and it was a tale about more mature characters, when Fancy and Matthew are both younger.
Fancy was pampered and protected by her siblings, she lived the life of a well-bred miss but being illegitimate and coming from the rookeries, she also is aware of the struggles of the weakest and poorest, why in her pwn way she tries to better their life with her available means, education.
This journey teaches her a lot about herself, while she learned to be confident and sure, she will discover sides of herself she didn’t know, and when faced with a choice, it will be the new Fancy that must make a choice.
Matthew knows who he is but he has always taken everything around him as granted. Even if he was tricked and found himself brought to the altar without a second glance by his bride-to-be, he now views women as actresses with only schemes in their mind. So when from her grave, his late wife made him a fox hunted by all the debutantes, he decides to run away from the marriage part and hide. Thus when he meets a young woman who checks all the boxes, he keeps his identity secrets and slowly lower his guards to trust her.
So as they get to know and slowly fall for one another, I wondered when the second shoes will drop and how Fancy will react to his deceit even if it was unintentional at the beginning. Fancy wants to please her kin, when her heart calls her outside the ballrooms, Matthew wants to be chosen for him and not the title tagged on the man. Both have a long way to extricate themselves from the web of their heart and desires to seek what they finally really want.
I was granted an advance copy by the publisher Avon through Edelweiss, I preordered my own.
Here is my true and unbiased opinion.
As for the story, I was sold from the beginning, as the heroine/Fancy was a bookseller who held literacy classes for those less fortunate. She even got the hero/Marcus to help teach, not knowing he is an Earl. Fancy's family, the Trewloves support her in everything she desires and we learn a lot more about Ettie Trewlove, the mother's story. I shouldn't have read this story in the night because it gave me a heart palpitation or two when Fancy found out about Marcus' title, but all is well in the end after a couple of twists and turns. Good read!
Love all the page time they had together. Their getting-to-know each other in Fancy's bookshop, a fantasy world, was so captivating. It was a place where Matthew could be just a man, not an earl. This love story was exactly what I needed right this moment. I needed a sweet, strong, passionate, as well as compassionate heroine, and yes, a book lover like Fancy. Loved that Matthew knew she fell in love with and chose him, not his title.
I've already started rereading this super gorgeous story and will keep rereading many more times.
Fancy and Matthew's story is endearing and sexy. So enjoyable to read.
