Small-town Sophia Spencer can’t believe her luck when an unexpected inheritance allows her to experience London’s social scene. But her happiness disappears when she is caught napping in a grumpy gentleman’s room—and forced into an engagement to protect her reputation! Personalities collide and love blooms in this stunning debut novel.
I was pulled into this book right away, but oddly enough, not because I liked Sophia. I kind of found her spoiled, selfish, and immature. However, by the end of the book I liked her a lot better. She grew a lot in this novel. I enjoyed Alex a lot in this novel. His actions made sense, even if I didn't agree with all of them.
No matter how many regency books I read it just kills me how strict they were with certain things (and all with the women...no problems for the men).
This book was interesting to me because even though the "bad guy" isn't hard to figure out, it's the "why" that gets you. I spend a lot of energy trying to figure out why in the world this was set up the way it was :)
If you are looking for a quick (it was only about 200 pages) light, clean, regency era romance, Sophia is worth the few hours it will take you to read it.
