What A Character! - Sophia from Behind the Courtesan

Today we have Bronwyn Stuart's character from Behind the Courtesan being interviewed.

Please welcome  Sophia Martin – Courtesan.

Character Questionnaire

1.What is the worst thing that has ever happened to you?

My father sold me to a Duke for a neighboring farm when I was just 14 years old. I was forced to flee into the night, broken, beaten and battered. That one event made the nightmares that followed seem more like pleasant daydreams.

2. How would you describe yourself in one sentence?

I can do it in one word. Resilient.

3. Do you have a secret?

As a courtesan I have plenty of my own secrets but more of the men of the ton’s than they’ll ever comprehend. It’s always good to have a backup plan in the form of an indiscretion or crime committed. It’s interesting what men will confess to one they think is loyal to only them.

4. On what occasion would you lie?

On any occasion that it saves my own neck.

5. What is your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement is that I lived. I’m a survivor and no one will take that away from me.

6. What is your greatest fear?

I have so many but the greatest is that I will never be accepted. I fear I’ll never find a place in my world where I actually fit and can be content.

Thanks, Sophia!


When courtesan Sophia Martin returns to the village she fled as a young woman, she knows it won't be a happy reunion--but she can't refuse her brother's request to attend his expectant wife. Trapped until the baby arrives, she must navigate the social rift she caused when she left to pursue a disreputable life--and keep the true reason for her departure from the man she once loved, the bastard son of the Duke who ruined her.

Blake Vale has never forgotten Sophia, but he can't accept the decisions she made, the courtesan's life she leads, or the fact she's cast aside her true self. Plain old Sophia has to be inside this hardened woman somewhere, and he's determined to make her see she doesn't need rich men to be happy, and that their future has nothing to do with the past.

When the dukedom suddenly falls within his reach, Blake must come to terms with his own past and his birthright, and what that means for his future...and Sophia
