Fanny Finch is a historical romance fiction author born in 1815 in London where she was named Francis Combe.

When she was just eight weeks old, she was left the child of a single mother after her mother had an affair with a footman and got pregnant but no marriage proposal was forthcoming.
According to most reports, she had once written a cross stitch sampler aged 15 in 1830 in which she said that her parents were from Africa but that she never knew them.

She was taken as an orphan at the London Foundling Hospital where she got an education, apprenticeship in household duties, and protection against slavery.

By the time she turned 22, she was an educated, literate, free, and experienced domestic servant. It was in 1837 that she was granted free passage as a laborer to South Australia, which was then a colony of England.
In Adelaide, she got a job working with Julia Wyatt an artist, author, and wife of the first Protector of Aborigines, and surgeon Dr. Willaium Wyatt.

Over about ten years, Fanny moved on from her job, married Joseph Finch a sailor, and began a new family.

By 1850, she was no longer living with her husband as she moved to Victoria where she lived during the gold rush operating a lodging house and restaurant.
By 1854, she moved to Castlemaine where she became one of the most recognizable residents as she ran a trendy restaurant.

Finch had a lot of business success and was known to dress in blue bright silk with artificial flowers in her black hair.

Robust and strong, she had a larger-than-life personality and never shied away from fighting injustice with her fists, her words, and her cooking.

Her conspicuousness and business acumen meant that the male Australians of her time were not very surprised when they saw her voting at the Theatre Royal, then known as the Hall of Castlemaine.
Nonetheless, their actual reaction was never recorded as all we know is that she walked in with no one stopping her, selected the candidates she liked, and signed her name.

However, her vote and those of two other women were later disallowed given that they were women and hence were not allowed to vote. Nonetheless, Fanny Finch got her wish as Walter Smith, for whom she cast her vote, was elected councilor.
Walter was a brewer and agent who arrived in the area a few weeks after Fanny did. There is very little known about what got Fanny to vote for Smith, but she had a clear determination to get the man into office.

Fanny Finch was a woman who never foundered under the weight of the very white and English world of commerce as she wielded her tears, sweat, and blood.

However, as a black woman living in a world dominated by white men, she had to deal with all manner of assaults on her success but refused to ever blend into the background.
One of these assaults came in 1855 when she was charged and tried for sly-grogging (illegal sale of alcohol) and was fined £50.

Despite the public slander and exorbitant fine, she refused to give up and represented herself from the conviction as she accused the authorities of injustice. It was soon after this that she cast her vote for the council seat which garnered a lot of attention.
Aged 48, she died in 1863 and left behind a legacy of a strong-minded woman with a tender heart who was ready to serve others without the slightest hesitation particularly when they were in distress.

“The Duke’s Cautious Cautious Governess” is a clean Regency romance that will have you enthralled from the first page to the last.

The leads are a duke who never had to take life seriously and an Earl’s daughter who had fallen from grace and crossed paths most unexpectedly.

Following the death of her father, Agnes Hubbard has to deal with the shame of her new status and find a job as a Governess with the Duke of Portsmouth just to survive.
When she arrives at the man’s home, she is shocked to learn that the man is much younger than she believed he would be.

Following his parents’ recent demise, he was left the Duke of Portsmouth and now has to take care of his four-year-old sister and a duchy with hardly any experience.

When Agness the governess arrives she is something of a godsend in the duke’s eyes. They have wildly different approaches to life but soon they start having feelings for each other.
As Agnes becomes more comfortable, she unexpectedly gets an anonymous letter with a shocking revelation that leaves her with a tough choice to make.

Fanny Finch’s novel “An Earl for Her Hopeless Heart” is the story of two lovers who met by accident and soon realized that they were meant to be together.

As the daughter of the Earl of Nottingham, Lady Hestia Stalwood finds herself with two choices. Driven by the wasteful spending of her father she can work as Lady Eugenia Culross’s companion or inherit the veritable pennies from her father.
She takes the first option but this means any hope of ever finding love is gone.

On the other hand, is the son of the Countess and Earl of Coventry Lord Leander Price who has to marry Miss Drusilla Sirey, the obnoxious daughter of a rich merchant in the county.

Since he is heir to his father’s title, he must make money and fast. When the two meet at a party, they have an instant connection and a spark is lit.

But what will happen when she finds out that the man she has developed an affinity with is engaged and is set to marry another? How will he react when he is forced to choose between his love for Hestia and his duty to his family?

“A Forthright Courtship” by Fanny Finch is another interesting addition to the “Tricky Courtships” series of novels.

When her father begins to realize that the weather in the Caribbean is not good for his health, he moves the family to London, enlisting the children of his best friend from childhood to help Maria navigate her first social season in the English capital.
Maria is a young girl who knows nothing about the confines of society and does not know how to socialize with people. But now needs to find a husband and polish her manners before the demise of her father, which may leave her with nothing.
She is determined to do her duty but it is a difficult task. Being taught by the Duke of Foreshire, Edward Reginal and his sister is the only way to set her father’s worries at ease and achieve her goals.

But will she be able to pull it off when everyone sees her as an outsider? Things only get more complicated when she realizes that she has fallen for the Duke who she thinks only thinks of her as a sister?
