She was determined to secure the succession, he was in it for the pleasure. Falling in love was not part of the arrangement.
When dashing twenty-five-year-old Stephen Cranborne arrives at the estate he will one day inherit, it's expected he will make a match with his beautiful second cousin, Araminta.
But while proud, fiery Araminta and her shy, plain sister, Hetty, parade their very different charms before him, it's their mother, Sybil, a lonely and discarded wife, who evokes first his sympathy and then stokes his lustful fires.
As Stephen introduces Sybil to every pleasure she's been deprived of, duty and passion become a deep and mutual love. But with the unexpected arrival of a contender to the estate, Sybil realises that what she's set in motion to save the family might have tragic consequences.
Her Gilded Prison is Book 1 in the Daughters of Sin series, a Regency-set 'Dynasty' that follows the love story of Viscount Partington's wife, her two nobly-born daughters, and the rivalry between them and the viscount's illegitimate daughters as they compete for love during a London Season.
Her Gilded Prison starts the aristocratic saga of several generations, with the pursuit of a traitor within their midst and a strong espionage theme. It can, however, be read as a stand-alone.
What Readers are Saying:
"This pairing breaks many a stereotype, pushes the envelope repeatedly but even though you see the obvious trainwreck coming, it's hard to turn away from. Her Gilded Prison is the reason guilty pleasures are so addictive."
"This was a totally unique story. The characters were well developed and the plot was one I had never seen and thoroughly enjoyed."
