The second in Susan May Warren’s Daughters of Fortune series, Baroness picks up several years after where its predecessor, Heiress, left off. Esme’s daughter Lilly is spending time in Paris with her cousin Rosie, Jinx’s daughter, but not of her own free will. She’d much rather return to Montana, a place she feels that her mother has long forgotten. Rosie, in the meantime, is longing for fame on the silver screen. But when both jump into relationships with men they barely know, will their broken hearts prevent them from pursuing their dreams?
From the streets of Paris, to the lights of Broadway, and to the wild west, Susan May Warren’s Baroness takes readers on a journey they won’t soon forget. A wonderful follow-up to the story of Esme and Jinx in Heiress, this tale creates unique heroines in Rosie and Lilly. Lilly’s untamed nature is part of her charm, but is it destined to lead her to trouble? And Rosie wants to create a life of her own, apart from her mother and stepfather, but it leads her, and the man she loves, onto a dangerous path.
I loved that this story allowed its new heroines, Lilly and Rosie, to shine, but it also provided an update on the lives of Esme, Oliver, Jinx and Bennett, which I very much enjoyed. And with just the right amount of romance and drama, you can’t go wrong. If you liked the first installment of the series, you’ll love where the second book takes you.
