New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath pens another richly satisfying romance in her Sins for all Seasons series.

She’s looking for a nobleman to wed…

Though born out of wedlock, Fancy Trewlove is determined to fulfill her mother’s wish that she marry into nobility. Fancy’s keen intellect and finishing school manners make her the perfect wife for any gentleman—if he’s willing to overlook her scandalous lineage. But Fancy’s plans are thrown into chaos when an intriguing commoner begins visiting her bookshop—and she finds herself unable to stop thinking about him.

He’s looking to escape his title…

Widowed just a year ago, the reclusive Matthew Sommersby, Earl of Rosemont, has been besieged by women hoping to become his next wife. Desperate for anonymity, he sheds Society life to search for the peace that eludes him. Fancy’s shop is his one refuge, until the night their passion erupts into a kiss that nearly leads to her ruin—and leaves both longing for much more.

Together, they discover an unlikely love…

As Fancy finds herself torn between her family’s expectations and her growing feelings for Matthew, secrets are exposed—secrets that force Fancy to question if she can trust her heart’s desire...

So first of all, this is a series that can also be read as standalones. This is kind of the way I'm reading them, I guess. Because I've only read the previous book, The Duchess in His Bed, which is book #4 (because of Gen's beautiful review on her blog Whispering Chapters) and now The Earl Takes a Fancy, which is book #5. I haven't read the first three books but I really want to because this series has easily become one of my favorite historical romance series. I love it so much!

This book was so much fun to read. It had everything I love in a historical romance or even just romance in general. It was like my eyes were glued on my Kindle screen and could hardly stop reading. And I just know that this story and especially the heroine who's name is Fancy will speak to so many readers who have a love for books and reading like I do. Also, how awesome is this title? I love it!

The Earl Takes a Fancy was a wonderful and beautiful love story. This is only the second book I've read by Lorraine Heath but she definitely has gotten a new fan in me. This story was one I just couldn't help but totally adore. It had a bookworm heroine (who has her own bookshop!), a cynical but oh so swoonworthy hero and togeter they hot some blazing hot chemistry together. I loved the romance so very much.

About the author:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases for a publicist, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. When she read a romance novel, she became not only hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She's been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards including RWA's RITA(R).

  1. A fun read is what I am here for these days! I love that the books can be read as standalone stories. ;)

  2. I recently read a historical fiction romance last month and it reminded me of how much I love the genre and should really get back to it at some point. Happy this was another instalment in the series you could enjoy ^.^
