The Heiress Series

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a fortune must be in want of a husband…


It’s the late Victorian Age, and the trans-Atlantic marriage market is in full swing.  Rich, ambitious American heiresses–many of them snubbed by hidebound, old-money society at home–have descended upon England and the Continent in search of titled husbands. The union between New World money and Old World lineage will preserve the aristocracy for another generation, change the composition of high society forever, and– for a fortunate few–lead to the love of a lifetime…

Now she’s the toast of Europe, desired by countless men but unwilling to commit to any of them. Then Robin Pendarvis walks back into her life …  Four years ago, Robin had hoped to make Sophie his bride, but secrets from his past forced him to let her go. Seeing her again revives all the old pain–and all the old passion. It might be against every rule, but somehow, some way, he will bring them together again…

“May I have this dance?”


Aurelia wasn’t hiding exactly. She just needed to get out of the crush of the ballroom—away from the people staring at her scar, pitying her limp. She was still quite enjoying the music from the conservatory. And then a complete stranger—dashing, debonair, kind—asked her to waltz. In the strength of his arms, she felt she could do anything. But both would be leaving London soon… When they meet again a year later, everything has changed. She’s no longer a timid mouse. And he’s now a titled gentleman—with a fiancée. Is the magic of one stolen moment, one undeniable connection enough to overcome a scandal that would set Society ablaze and tear their families apart?
