This smart, unrepentant and brave Victorian heroine will inspire and delight! When “Dollar Princess” Alexandra Atherton dares to defy her scheming mother’s plan to marry her off to a foppish British peer, she decides that her only chance at freedom is a total break from the restrictive confines of her privileged life, becoming a runaway heiress. Her ill-thought-out escape from London goes terribly wrong at every turn until she meets a handsome young man, Thomas Carlyle, who hires her as governess to his younger sisters. Unbeknownst to each other, they are both living double lives – she to facilitate her freedom – he to support his crumbling estate in Cornwall. What started as a business arrangement gradually evolves into something that neither expected. Being a big fan of romance stories set in 19th-century England featuring young ladies who defy social strictures, I was immediately attracted to the smart, unrepentant, and brave heroine, Lexie. Having the story set in Cornwall was also a plus for me and I enjoyed the lush descriptions of the manor house and gardens in which she resides with Lord Carlyle and his sisters. While the attraction of the hero and heroine was immediate, their romance simmered, growing into the most satisfying aspect of this delightful romance. I am happy to recommend it to those of you who crave a happily-ever-after escape. Resplendent with charm, romance and surprises, fans of Downton Abbey and Jane Austen will be enchanted. Laurel Ann -
