Is Sarah Ferguson’s debut novel based on herself? Historical romance Her Heart for a Compass delves into British royal life – but are there any steamy love scenes?

  • Victorian-era protagonist Lady Margaret is based on Fergie’s ancestor, and the real-life Queen Victoria and Scotland’s Dalkeith Palace make an appearance
  • Bridgerton fans might be disappointed by the lack of sexual tension as the novel’s ‘romance’ is more Shakespearean – but it’s an excellent coming-of-age story
