About the Author

Georgette Heyer novels formed Sophia James’s reading tastes as a teenager. But her writing life only started when she was given a pile of Mills & Boons to read after she had had her wisdom teeth extracted! Filled with strong painkillers she imagined that she could pen one, too. Many drafts later Sophia thinks she has the perfect job writing for Harlequin Historical as well as taking art tours to Europe with her husband, who is a painter.

The Cinderella Countess by Sophia James is book Three in the Gentlemen of Honor Series. This is the story of Annabelle 'Belle' Smith and Lytton Staines, Earl of Thornton. I haven't yet read the previous books, so for me this was a standalone book. Belle lives with her her Aunt, a lady that took her in and they live in London's extremely poor neighborhood. Bell has become a well known healer in her area. Lytton sister has been very sick and no doctor has been able to help her. When he learns of Belle healing skills he goes to her for help. This thrust her into his world and they build a friendship along with stronger feelings. But Belle's life is put in danger in his world and they go forward to find out why and who Belle may really be. Enjoyed their story.

London - 1815 Annabelle (Belle) Smith is 31-years-old, and an herbalist. She is being called upon by Lytton Staines, the Earl of Thornton, age 35. Lytton is seeking help for his sister, Lucy, who appears to have a wasting sickness. The doctors have not been able to help her, and having heard Belle’s good reputation with the medicines that she makes, he needs her help. She agrees to see his sister the next day. Belle had lived in France with a woman who took her in from the nuns at a nearby church. She was also an herbalist and Belle calls her aunt. She does not know where she came from but has memories of fancy dressed people in large homes. When Belle visits Lucy, she does not feel that she is truly ill, but is hiding a secret she does not want to face. So, Belle befriends her in a way that she hopes will get her to open up. Lytton is quite taken with Belle and enjoys her company. She’s intelligent and is well read. Her perfect speech and knowledge of both English and French show she is of an aristocratic heritage. When Belle is struck and injured by a carriage obviously owned by someone of wealth, she realizes someone from her mysterious past has recognized her and wants her dead. Lytton cares for her safety and hires someone to guard her. When yet another near-death disaster strikes, Lytton is determined to get to the bottom of these events and find out who is trying to kill Belle and why.
