Overview

Following the death of their father, Beth’s brother Richard returns from the army to claim his share of the family estate. However, Beth’s hopes of a quiet life are dashed when Richard, dissatisfied with his meagre inheritance and desperate for promotion, decides to force her into a marriage for his military gain. And he will stop at nothing to get his way.

Beth is coerced into a reconciliation with her noble cousins in order to marry well and escape her brutal brother. She is then thrown into the glittering social whirl of Georgian high society and struggles to conform. The effeminate but witty socialite Sir Anthony Peters offers to ease her passage into society and she is soon besieged by suitors eager to get their hands on her considerable dowry. Beth, however, wants love and passion for herself, and to break free from the artificial life she is growing to hate. She finds herself plunged into a world where nothing is as it seems and everyone hides behind a mask. Can she trust the people professing to care for her?

The first in the series about the fascinating lives of beautiful Beth Cunningham, her family and friends during the tempestuous days leading up to the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, which attempted to overthrow the Hanoverian King George II and restore the Stuarts to the British throne.

Join the rebellion of one woman and her fight for survival in...

The Jacobite Chronicles.

I liked the story very much but was so disappointed when I see I can't get the rest of the series on my nook. Barns and Noble please don't push a book that is part of series and not put the rest of the series for us to read.

I loved this book and would happily buy the rest of the series but they are not available on my nook. Very disappointing

Do not fault the author for striving to craft an entertaining book that also includes the portrayal of life as it was for woman and the lower class during prior centuries. Thankfully our history includes many women who like Elizabeth were willing to speak their mind and believe in greater equality for women. While I did enjoy the book I was, like other readers, disappointed that I could not purchase other books in the series on my nook.

Really enjoyed this story. Liked the way it progressed. I think the heroine was a little shallow however was very happy that the story wasn't based on sex.

Well developed main characters, with a good feel for the times. I look forward to the sequels.

Characters remind one of the Scarlet Pimpernel, but most enthralling read

This was an interesting historical view of King George's reign from afar. I loved the characters and especially Elizabeth. She was such an intelligent free woman for her time period. The tension between her and her brother was definitely real. Her divided feelings about Sir Anthony were complex.
