Julia Elliston is caught between two powerful men: her husband and an aristocrat whose protection she is forced to accept. Thrust into Victorian London society as the Emerald Heiress, Julia realizes that she cannot escape the power of her estranged spouse, Chance Macy, nor can she forever live under the protection of Lord Roy Pierson. Not knowing whom she can trust, Julia finds every step she takes is a leap of faith. She falls in love with Edward Auburn, a childhood friend and now a vicar, and discovers that the path to true love is rife with danger, intrigue, and blackmail. But her faith, faltering at points, brings her through the many challenges she must overcome to have the life she was meant to live. VERDICT This dark, dramatic second series entry (after Born of Persuasion) is a brooding and atmospheric tale that may appeal to readers who enjoy Charlotte Brontë.
