Heiress by Susan May Warren

About the book: Heiress

They can buy anything they want—fame, power, beauty, even loyalty.

But they can’t buy love.

The beautiful and wealthy heiress daughters of August Price can buy everything their hearts desire. But what if their desire is to be loved, without an enormous price tag attached? When one sister betrays another for the sake of love, will she find happiness? And what happens when the other sets out across the still untamed frontier to find it—will she discover she’s left it behind in the glamorous world of the New York gilded society? What price will each woman pay for being an heiress?

Set in the opulent world of the Gilded Age, two women discover that being an heiress just might cost them everything they love.

Here's my review of this amazing novel:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Susan May Warren and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Heiress" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

In her latest novel, “Heiress”, Susan May Warren whisks her audience immediately into the lifestyle of two high society debutantes at the end of the 19th century. Elegance and propriety drip from the opening pages of this story about the daughters of a New York newspaper magnate. Esme and Jinx Price have very different ideas about what their dream lives would look like.

Jinx, the youngest sister, desires a family and a household to manage within the New York high society she knows. Sadly, she cannot hope to marry until her older sister, Esme, is settled down with the right man. Unfortunately for Jinx, Esme dreams of being a published author rather than a dutiful society wife. This engaging story has it all: romance, betrayal, wealth and adventure.

I cannot wait for the release of “Baroness”, book two in the Daughters of Fortune series.
