A Lady’s Guide to Scandal (Hardback)Sophie Irwin (author)
Perfect reading for all lovers of Bridgerton, the giddily irresistible sequel to the Regency smash A Lady's Guide to Fortune Hunting finds the formerly level-headed Eliza drawn to a spot of misbehaviour despite the promise of a fortune.
The captivating new historical novel from the author of the Sunday Times bestseller A Lady's Guide to Fortune-Hunting.
Recently widowed from her marriage of convenience, Eliza, now Dowager Countess of Somerset, is bequeathed a fortune, hers to keep as long as she can steer clear of scandal.
It should be simple - Eliza has spent a lifetime following the rules - but now that she is rich, titled and independent, misbehaviour is much more tempting...

‘Witty, enrapturing and deliciously improper – I was entirely seduced.’ Beth Morrey ‘A perfectly pitched blend of collar-tightening tension, hilarious societal rules and a will-they-won’t-they that echoes the golden age of the romcom. Sophie Irwin is a genius’ Ore Agbaje-Williams ‘It is just joyous. I feel bereft to have closed the pages and realise the characters are not real. Wonderful, warm, funny and joyful.’ Cesca Major ‘What a complete joy this was to read! Everything you could want in a regency romcom, written with real affection for the genre, intelligence, and style.’ Niamh Hargan ‘An absolute delight from beginning to end, immersing readers in a masterfully crafted Regency world brimming with loveable characters and laugh-out-loud wit!’ Felicity George ‘I absolutely loved this book. It gave me all the delicious feelings I want from a Regency romance, and more! I simply could not put it down till I was finished.’ Emma Orchard ‘Sophie Irwin continues to lead the charge for Regency revival with this fabulously witty, unputdownable and oh-so-swoonworthy follow-up to her debut. I adored Eliza’s story.’ Jessica Bull ‘This sparkling novel has all the elegance and charm you could hope for in a 19th-century romance – but also a very modern sensibility, it’s witty and fun, which makes it relatable.’ Adele Parks
