Interview and signing with Sophie Irwin - 4/9/23

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 behaviour 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?

About the author:

Sophie Irwin grew up in Dorset, England; after university, she moved to London to work in publishing. A Lady’s Guide to Scandal is her second novel.

Sophie has spent years immersed in the study of historical fiction, from a dissertation on why Georgette Heyer helped win World War Two, to time spent in dusty stacks and old tomes doing detailed period research when writing this book.

Her love and passion for historical fiction bring a breath of fresh air and a contemporary energy to the genre. Sophie hopes to transport readers to Regency London, where ballrooms are more like battlegrounds.

Sophie will be interviewed by fellow romance author, Lulu Taylor, on Monday, 4th September 2023, 6.30 for 7pm at the Butterfly House, Castle Gardens, DT9 5NR

Tickets £2 redeemable against the book.
