Book Description

Fairchild by Jaima Fixsen

The Indie Book of the Day for 30th of January, 2014!

Genre: Romance, Historical

Truth or dare? Good English families all have a house in the country with a deer park, a trout stream, and an army of gardeners. They should have a son and if it can be managed, he should be handsome. Cleverness isn’t important. Daughters in limited quantities are fine so long as they are pretty. Bastards are inconvenient and best ignored. It’s not a big problem, unless you are one.  Unfortunately, Sophy is.  Sick of her outcast role, she escapes her father’s house, only to fall from her horse during a spring storm. Injured, soaked, and shivering, she stumbles to a stranger’s door—Tom, a blunt edged merchant from a family of vulgar upstarts. Mistaking Sophy for the genuine article, he takes her in.  Sophy can’t resist twisting the truth. Soon she’s caught in her own snare—and it might just be a noose.

Read Sample

I was born in Alberta, Canada, and I’ve lived here ever since. I attended the University of Alberta, choosing a ‘practical’ degree in health sciences, and married my husband, Jeff, along the way, just after my twentieth birthday. Marrying young was the best thing I ever did.

At thirty I had three busy children and one busy husband. I decided it was time to take a break from my common sense career. Since I was chucking practicality anyways, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to write fiction. I’ve counted fictional characters among my best friends since my mother gave me Pierre Berton’s The Secret World of Og for my sixth birthday, but this was the first time I let myself invent my own characters and take them past the first few chapters. If I had known writing would be this addictive, I might have shied away. I do love it.

So far, I’ve only written historical fiction, but I love mysteries too and someday might try my hand at one of those. The biggest downside I’ve found to writing is that I have less time to spend immersed in my favorite books.
