My Last Duchess by Daisy Goodwin

Large softcover in good condition.

Headline Review.

2010.

468 pages.

Cora Cash has grown up in a world in which money unlocks every door. Her coming-out ball promises to be the most opulent of the gilded 1890s, a fitting debut for New York's 'princess'. Yet her fortune cannot buy her the one thing she craves — the freedom to choose her own destiny. For Cora's mother has her heart on a title for her daughter, and in England — where they are bound, to find Cora a husband — impoverished blue bloods are queuing up for introductions to American heiresses. But the aristocracy is a treacherous realm. When Cora loses her heart to a man she barely knows, she soon realises that she is playing a game she does not fully understand — and that her future happiness is the prize. Daisy Goodwin's sparking debut brings the fin de siecle romance between England and America to exuberant life.

The Fortune Hunter by Daisy Goodwin

2014.

506 pages.

 

In 1875, Sisi, the Empress of Austria is the woman that every man desires and every woman envies.

 

Beautiful, athletic and intelligent, Sisi has everything - except happiness. Bored with the stultifying etiquette of the Hapsburg Court and her dutiful but unexciting husband, Franz Joseph, Sisi comes to England to hunt. She comes looking for excitement and she finds it in the dashing form of Captain Bay Middleton, the only man in Europe who can outride her. Ten years younger than her and engaged to the rich and devoted Charlotte, Bay has everything to lose by falling for a woman who can never be his. But Bay and the Empress are as reckless as each other, and their mutual attraction is a force that cannot be denied.
