    Do you like Regency setting romances? If so this book is for you. I enjoyed the main character of Cassandra; I thought she was written to have an interesting personality. Her interactions with the other main character, Geoffrey, were fun to read. The backdrop to the story pertains to ballooning. The author does a splendid job of incorporating this into the love story of the two main characters. I thought the author wrote an entertaining story and that is why I gave the book 5/5 stars. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in books with Lords and Lady's. It really was an easy read and I cannot think of anything negative to say!

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    A flight into romance

    Nobody can write Regency England Romances better than Laurie Alice Eakes. And her latest in that series, Flight of Fancy, is just like the title suggests---a delightful, fanciful flight into romance. The main character Cassandra Bainbridge---of the Daughters of Bainbridge series----is a real hoot. She made me laugh. Oh my goodness, she made me laugh.

    I loved Cassandra's somewhat imperfect nature, her slightly less than perfect looks, her mildly uneven temperament. I get so tired of perfect heroines with stunning looks. Instead, I love a heroine that rises above her disadvantages, and Cassandra Bainbridge is all that.

    Deep down Cassandra is a really sweet girl and quite pretty, but bless her . . . she wears spectacles. And thanks to a tragic accident, walks with a painful limp throughout the book. Now this is a character I can relate to.

    Due to this accident, Cassandra isn't thinking as clearly as she used to. To give her sore heart a rest, she rejects the man who wants to marry her, and she escapes into her private world of academic and dangerous interests, including the fanciful one of ballooning.

    Throw in a truly wonderful hero, Lord Whittaker, her former fiancé, who is also not perfect, and you have a romantic romp that takes you away from your worries for several hours. Lord Whittaker doesn't know how to handle his spirited but wounded love, Cassandra, but he tries so hard, and wins my heart as well. At the same time, he is trying to save his mills and his workers' livelihoods, as well as his mother's reputation.

    I loved this story for its fun, purity, its story where I just want to see the two characters together. The author uses the brilliance we've come to expect from her, as she weaves historical detail into the plot, adding depth without pulling the reader out of vivid scenes. At times I really felt like I was up in the clouds in a balloon with Cassandra and Lord Whittaker.

    Another big thumbs up to Laurie Alice Eakes for a delightful romance that I recommend for female readers between the ages of 13 and 89.

    A Delicious Regency Romance Wrapped Up in Suspense

    A delicious Regency Romance wrapped up in suspense. What more could a reader ask for? That it be written by Laurie Alice Eakes, of course! A divine read with so many captivating plots and subplots. Not to mention the characters...and an epic complicated love story.

    Eakes' words have the ability to transport me through time. I love how she brings the Regency period to life. A Fight of Fancy is seeped in history but not weighted down by it and it was easy to get lost within its pages. I love that kind of escape read.

    The second in The Daughters of Bainbridge House series, you don't need to read the first book to enjoy this one -- but if you did read A Necessary Deception, you will already be acquainted with Cassandra and her renegade ways. Feisty and daring, but still every inch the lady, Cassandra makes an endearing if frustrating heroine to Geoffrey's hero. Both share an impetuous and passionate nature but are at odds with so many other things in their lives that it's a wonder Eakes managed to get them together at all! Throw in all the intrigue and mystery and the result is a riveting read you won't want to put down.

    Misunderstandings and blackmail abound in this thrilling regency romance!

    Cassandra and Geoffrey are happily engaged, when tragedy strikes leaving Cassandra scarred to the point where she calls off the engagement. Geofrey agrees to go undercover, and he begins to worry that he might be the reason that Cassie is being targeted, making Geofrey determined to keep her safe. Is it possible that these events can bring them back together instead of tearing them apart?

    This was a fun regency read, filled with suspense and misunderstandings. Having not read the first book in the series I was happy to find that it was for the most part stand alone. There were times when I didn't totally understand the characters' motives for not speaking up sooner, but I loved hot there was alot of intrigue and suspense going on.

    Overall, this was an entertaining read with plenty of action and a thrilling climax!

    I received this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. Thanks!

    If you like Regency novels, Laurie Alice Eakes is your go-to author. I'm giving Flight of Fancy five stars for several reasons: top-notch storytelling, impeccable historical integrity, believable characters, rich sensory immersion, and fascinating details, especially related to hot air ballooning. If you want to lose yourself in a story, and feel smarter at the end of a novel, pick up this novel, and any of this author's other works.
