THE HEIRESS HUNT by Joanna Shupe
Joanna Shupe’s new series The Fifth Avenue Rebels is off to a great start with The Heiress Hunt.
Harrison Archer has been in love with his childhood best friend Maddie for years. He has recently returned to NYC from Paris to destroy his family who exiled him and to marry Maddie. He is determined to get everything he has always wanted.
Madeline Webster is the belle of the ball in Gilded Age New York and Newport. She has achieved her dream of playing lawn tennis at a national tournament and is soon to be betrothed to an English duke. She thinks she has gained everything she ever thought she wanted, until Harrison shows up after a three year absence.
When one reads many romance books you begin to anticipate what will happen next while reading. This book had surprising story turns which kept it interesting.
I love Joanna Shupe. Her books are always such sexy fun and her knowledge of Gilded Age New York and now Newport is evident in all her books.
There are so many great characters from both Harrison’s friends and Maddie’s friends that Shupe has a multitude of options to choose from for the rest of this series. I greatly look forward to reading them.
