The Cavensham Heiresses, Book 1
I heard about this debut novel on Twitter from Eloisa James, one of my favorite authors. So I bought the ebook and thanked her – it’s a terrific read.
Lady Claire is cursed. She’s been engaged four times, and hasn’t made it to the altar yet. The gossip about her is widespread and damning.
Lord Alexander Hallworth, the Marquess of Pembrooke, has a sworn enemy in Lord Paul, Lady Claire’s latest fiancé. When he sends her a note, breaking off their engagement, Pembrooke is there to break her fall from grace. He offers for her hand, and feels that he has finally gotten his revenge. Of course Claire knows nothing about any of this – yet. But she will, and it will get ugly.
This was a fun read with interesting characters and an unusual plot line. The next book in the series is The Bride Who Got Lucky, and comes out Oct. 31. I’ve already read it (I couldn’t wait!) and it’s terrific. I will be posting a review around the publication date.
