When a holiday blizzard brings together a pair of reluctant lovers, the result threatens their reputations … and may cost them their hearts.
Feisty and independent American heiress Violet Howard swears she'll never wed a crusty British aristocrat. Will, the Earl of Merlton, is determined to salvage his family's fortune without succumbing to a marriage of convenience.
But when a snowstorm leaves Violet and Will stranded and alone, their sudden chemistry will challenge good intentions. Seized by a desire that burns through the night, they'll toss reservations aside in favor of the heat found in each other's arms.
Will their passion survive the storm? Will they realize they've found a love to last them through all seasons?
An Heiress For All Seasons by Sophie Jordan is a smart, sophisticated historical with a holiday touch. Violet Howard, an American heiress, is in Great Britain to catch a husband – much to her annoyance. Her mother orchestrated her season and wants her to marry into British aristocracy. Violet is stubborn and convinced that her parents will some day relent and allow her to marry her father’s assistant. Violet doesn’t want someone to marry her simply for her fortune. Will is a likable fellow and you can see him falling for Violet though not quite understanding why he is feeling that way. I liked him a lot and found myself rooting for him throughout the story.
I really enjoyed this novella and it was a quick read for me, as I had to know what happens to Violet and Will. The ending was a bit abrupt, though I think that is because I want more from these two characters! I would love to spend more time with them. Their story was both sweet and sexy and well written. I definitely want to read more in this series from Sophie Jordan!
