Happy US publication day to Sophie Irwin, whose Regency romance novel A Lady’s Guide to Scandal publishes in paperback in the US today with Pamela Dorman Books.

A Lady’s Guide to Scandal is the sequel to A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting. It follows the recently widowed Eliza, who is bequeathed a fortune on the condition that she steers clear of scandal. She doesn’t expect to be torn between two men: a face from the past and a roguish poet.

Sophie Irwin’s debut novel, A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting, was published in 2022 and was a Sunday Times Bestseller.
