5 STARS I received my copy today in the mail and was going to just read a few chapters and ended up reading till 1:00 am when I finished. I liked Sophia more and more as we got to know her. I also liked the rest of the characters too. Except for one. The story is a regency romance, that is full of the ton and High Society. It is drama, romance and a clean read. The plot Sophia inherits a sum of money, a house in London by her Grandmother who she has never met. Sophia wants to have a season. Her Aunt agrees to host her. She is caught asleep in a gentleman's couch and is rushed into marriage. Sophia Spenser is eighteen and raised by her father a Doctor in the small village of Tissington. Sophia loves to ride her horse. I was drawn right into the story and wanted to see what would happen next to Sophia. I thought the pace of the book was good. I loved the ending. I would love to read another book by Paula Kremser in the future. I was given this book to read so I could give a honest review of it and be part of Sophia's blog tour.

Sophia is a total delight that you'll want to read again and again... Sophia    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

First of all, there have been many times when I've wished I could go back in time to England past! I was aware before, but Sophia's situation really made me extra aware of the rigid lines of society in those days - maybe not as much fun as I'd thought, but definitely entertaining (and I'd still love to visit). Sophia was a very entertaining book that kept me wanting more. When I first read the description, I was intrigued. I mean, not many books have a synopsis where the main character falls asleep in a grumpy unknown guys room, then is forced to marry them! Match of love every time - not, but in this case maybe! Sophia was a character whom I could relate to, personality wise at least. She was kind, funny, naive, loved horses, and was thrilled at the prospect of having a season in London. She grew up with her father, a country doctor, whom was very kind and gave in to many of her whims possibly causing her to be slightly spoiled, yet really down to earth. Making the best of her inheritance, Sophia traveled to London to stay with her not so kind aunt, buying nice dresses, and attending balls. With all of that work, one is sure to get tired. Alex was very upset about the predicament at first. To be the unsuspecting target of a scheme? Well, it's enough to make even the sweetest of gentlemen explode! Then as we got to know him better, I really liked his personality. He was kind, honest, hardworking, and funny yet serious. As they get to know each other, Sophia and Alex come to find that there is more to the other than first appeared. When Sophia starts to fall in love, wonders if she will ever know whether or not Alex really wants to marry her, or if she'll always be a burden in his eyes. There were also some other likable characters, some shallow ones, some cruel ones - I'm not giving away who is what though. There were many humorous moments withing the pages of this book, as well as some heartbreaking ones. All is not soft and fluffy at all times, when dealing with forced engagements! I received a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are solely my own.

Sophia is such a down-to-earth girl. She was raised as a lady, yet grew up as a country doctor's daughter. When her grandmother passes away and gives her a hefty inheritance, she makes her way to London to have a season. Under the care of her aunt, she spends a lot of time whirling around society. After only a few days, she finds herself completely exhausted and ends up taking a nap at a ball--in a man's room! Caught in a compromising situation, she soon discovers that there are only two options--marriage, in order to protect her reputation, or a ruined reputation. I loved watching Sophia discover the world of London. Things in the city are so much different than the country. Lady Anne was a great friend and an entertaining character. She was instrumental in helping Sophia ultimately figure out how to handle her situation and I loved the part she played and the way she played it. Alex was great! He was a victim of this situation, but was determined to handle things well, especially after his initial outburst. I loved the message that things aren't always as they seem, because there was plenty of that in this story. The story had the hint of a mystery, yet was fun and predictable, with a lot of great characters. Content: nothing of note. Good, clean fun!
