By Paula Kremser
Sophia is a delightful story that fans of Jane Austen and Regency Era Romance will love. This is a book that you won't be embarrassed to be caught reading (it is garbage free).
When Sophia is left an inheritance by her estranged grandmother Lady Atkinson she is delighted at her sudden good fortune, And when she has an opportunity to experience a London season she is almost beside herself with anticipation.
But when an innocent mistake traps Sophia in a scandal that could destroy her reputation, she is forced into an engagement that she never sought nor desires. But is there another way? Sophia is determined to find it even if it means living with a ruined reputation.
But does Sophia truly realize just what a ruined reputation will mean? And what of the gentleman to whom she is expected be married? Alex Huntley is determined to change Sophia's mind not for her sake alone but his too. His honor is on the line as well for Sophia's mistake. But to change Sophia's mind he needs her to fall in love with him. But is Alex's heart as unaffected by Sophia's simple charms as he thinks? Only time will tell and it is about to run out...
I really loved this book and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a clean historical romance. This is the perfect book to curl up with in a cozy out of the way spot!
I was provided a digital ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review and tour participation.

About the author:
Paula Kremser focused on a career in science for several years after graduating from Brigham Young University. DNA purification and Affinity Chromatography were always interesting, but when she moved to England, Paula seized the opportunity to focus on her love of the Regency Era. The enchantment of the aristocracy and the fascinating stories from every stately home she visits have been both research and inspiration for her first novel. Paula lives with her husband and four children in a charming village nestled in the Chiltern hills in Buckinghamshire.
