Product Description

"Deliciously different... A good story, a believable and charming romance, and utterly delightful." Alyssa Lynn Palmer reviews

A feel-good, heartwarming modern-day Cinderella romance

Sophie Challoner made her dying mother a promise to look after the rest of her family. Sophie throws herself into her responsibilities, forgetting to enjoy her own life while caring for others. But when Sophie's French grandmother throws a party for her in Paris, Sophie meets Jean-Luc Olivier – and she does something reckless and brilliant.
It's a night Sophie never forgets...
Years later, Sophie and Jean-Luc are reunited, and Sophie realises her Prince Charming isn't the shallow socialite she thought. Jean-Luc is a force to be reckoned with…

"Unforgettable, powerfully intense and beautifully written" Caroline Barker, A Reader's Review

The Silk Romance is powerfully intense throughout. Every sentence reads like it was well thought out and Helena Fairfax has a great use of language in this beautifully written novel.

Although mostly told from Sophie’s point of view, the reader also has an insight into Jean-Luc’s mind as he regularly ponders over the delicate situation of Sophie. Many of the characters’ thoughts are highly emotive and the reader finds it incredibly difficult to pull themselves away. At times when I wasn’t reading, I couldn’t help but think of these characters and the predicament they are both in.

Sophie is old before her time in many respects. After the passing of her mother and the promise she made to take care of her father and brother, she works from a young age and makes no time for social activities. Sophie and her family reside on a poor estate in London, and she spends most of her money on debts that her father had accrued. It is only through a studying course that the opportunity opens up for her to gain some work experience, ending her back in Lyon with Jean-Luc. Although it is not a choice she is entirely happy with, it is one she needs to help her through and become successful, in order for her to support her family more.

An ex-racing driver and now owner of a successful silk factory, Jean-Luc has it all. He is a wealthy, handsome man, with his fair share of women and living-it-up lifestyle. However, he is also a dark horse with secrets of his own. Jean-Luc is controlling and manipulative, and yet he enchants the reader as well as Sophie! Helena’s description of his icy cold stares, for example, captivate the reader as if his eyes were aimed directly at them. His determination to get what he wants is matched by no other. And what he wants……………is Sophie.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Kind of Romance Book 18 September 2013
By Leona Pence - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Silk Romance by Helena Fairfax proves the old adage that opposites attract. Sophisticated race car driver, Jean-Luc, and the lowly college student, Sophie, could not have been more different except in their attraction for each other.

Sophie promised her dying mother she'd take care of her father and brother, a promise she intends to keep at all costs. For this reason, she convinces herself their romance has no chance.

It takes a while for Sophie to realize she's misjudged Jean-Luc's character, that he's not the playboy he used to be. Working at his silk mill gives her a whole new perspective on what motivates him, and allows Jean-Luc a glimpse into her life.

Helena Fairfax has a wonderful writing style and has written a page-turning romance book. The characters have depth, even her brother, Jack, endearing them to us.

I highly recommend The Silk Romance. Her next book is on my reading list.

This author has done what most authors nowadays fail to do. She has captured the essence of real old fashioned romance with the real (at least in my head lol) dark haired enigmatic hero who is totally in love with the h. Also she has pulled this off without the offensive profanities and drawn out sex scenes. If you are a fan of romance at all I would highly recommend this book. At first I thought it was historical romance but I soon realized it was not but again this author has captured my interest totally. I would buy her books again.

Well put together, with interesting characters doing interesting things. The s energy is not routine and the book has a comfortable feel. A little predictable but good
5.0 out of 5 stars Silk and love...what more could a girl want? 4 October 2015

A tender romantic tale, The Silk Romance, showcases a strong hero who balances his tendency to control his environment with his basic human needs for love and caring. Helena Fairfax once again gives readers a satisfying romance without relying on sex to sell the story. The history between the hero and heroine provides enough tension to make a satisfying read and the HEA ending with the full cast of characters will leave the reader smiling.
5.0 out of 5 stars like most romance novels has a predictable outcome 3 September 2015
By granny loves to read - Published on

The Silk Romance, like most romance novels has a predictable outcome. The measure of a good romance novel is the development of the characters and how we feel about them. In this one, we feel empathy for all the characters, even the supporting cast. I really wanted that happy ending and I got it. Great escapism in the printed word!
