The Earl Takes a Fancy A Sins for All Seasons Novel
Matthew Sommersby, Earl of Rosemont, has disguised himself as an ordinary man to avoid remarriage. Fancy Trewlove, though born out of wedlock, was raised with the expectation that she would marry well. After so many of her siblings have, she surely has no excuse. The two meet at her bookshop and are instantly drawn to one another. One chance encounter leads to another, and soon the two are making excuses to find each other again and again.
I jumped into this book without having read any others in the series, and it only made me eager to read more about the Trewlove siblings. So many historical romances are about those already rich and wealthy, and it’s refreshing to find a book which comes closer to showing how the other half lives. Fancy herself has not struggled overmuch, but she works with those who have, which gives delightful depth to her romantic nature. Matthew’s cynicism about love makes him the perfect complement, and the interactions between the two are downright delicious.
I will say the attraction between the two at times seems forced, and I would have preferred to see it grow more naturally over time, but that’s a matter of personal taste. Overall, this was a wonderful book to sink into, and it left me eager for more.
