Esme and Jinx are the wealthy daughters of newspaper magnate, August Price. In the golden age of New York, the two women are expected to marry, and to do so advantageously.

One of the sisters has no desire to bow to the conventions of high society. Instead, she longs to become a reporter, following in her father’s footsteps. But when August rejects her dreams, she decides to make a way for herself on the American frontier. Will freedom in the west bring her the success and romance she’s longed for, or just another string of disappointments?

The other sister marries well, but will it be everything she’s expected? And when she finds herself attracted to another man, will she be able to resist temptation?

The first in the Daughters of Fortune series, Heiress is a well-written novel that is sure to impress fans of historical fiction. Susan May Warren creates complex characters in both Esme and Jinx, and a compelling cast of supporting characters. Though some events were a little too easy to predict for me, I still enjoyed this book immensely, and would recommend it to anyone who’s in the mood for a good romance novel.

Rating: 3.5/5
