Set in the opulent world of the Gilded Age, each woman discovers that being an heiress just might cost her
everything–including the chance for true love.
I started reading Heiress on a whim. I quickly fell in love with it. I won’t say it was Downton Abbey but if you like that show, you may like this book. I loved the scandal and drama from that time. Once I really got going in the book, I didn’t want to put it down. What I really liked about this book is that it’s so full of drama and story that I kept gasping in…delight? intrigue? shock? at the turn of many chapters. I highly recommend giving this book a chance. I’m already looking forward to reading more books in the series.
