Review: A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting by Sophie Irwin

Title: A Lady’s Guide to Fortune Hunting

Series: A Lady’s Guide #1

Author: Sophie Irwin

Follows the adventures of an entirely unconventional heroine who throws herself into the London Season to find a wealthy husband. But the last thing she expects is to find love…

Kitty Talbot needs a fortune. Or rather, she needs a husband who has a fortune. Left with her father’s massive debts, she has only twelve weeks to save her family from ruin.

Kitty has never been one to back down from a challenge, so she leaves home and heads toward the most dangerous battleground in all of England: the London season.

Kitty may be neither accomplished nor especially genteel—but she is utterly single-minded; imbued with cunning and ingenuity, she knows that risk is just part of the game.

The only thing she doesn’t anticipate is Lord Radcliffe. The worldly Radcliffe sees Kitty for the mercenary fortune-hunter that she really is and is determined to scotch her plans at all costs, until their parrying takes a completely different turn…

This is a frothy pleasure, full of brilliant repartee and enticing wit—one that readers will find an irresistible delight.

After the death of her parents and a broken engagement, Kitty sets off to London with her sister, Cecily, to find a husband to support her siblings.

I do absolutely adore a historical romance and this was so good! There was gossip, drama, trying to fit in, lies, deception and all the pomp of the Ton. Oh and also a slow burn romance that was delish!

I loved Radcliffe, he was tortured and delish!

I also loved Kitty. She was so devious but it was all for very good reasons!

Just to finish off, I was so happy to see Cheapside mentioned. It was where my employers offices first started off in 1810 so it brought back memories! Not that I was there of course!!!!
