Miss Jane Fairfield can't do anything right. When she's in company, she always says the wrong thing--and rather too much of it. No matter how costly they are, her gowns fall on the unfortunate side of fashion. Even her immense dowry can't save her from being an object of derision. And that's precisely what she wants. She'll do anything, even risk humiliation, if it means she can stay unmarried and keep her sister safe. Mr. Oliver Marshall has to do everything right. He's the bastard son of a duke, raised in humble circumstances--and he intends to give voice and power to the common people. If he makes one false step, he'll never get the chance to accomplish anything. He doesn't need to come to the rescue of the wrong woman. He certainly doesn't need to fall in love with her. But there's something about the lovely, courageous Jane that he can't resist...even though it could mean the ruin of them both. The Heiress Effect is the second full-length book in the Brothers Sinister series. It is preceded by The Governess Affair, a prequel novella, and The Duchess War, the first book in the series. Each book stands alone, but those who prefer to read in order might want to start at the beginning.

Love, love, love. It's like biting into rich, dark chocolate, and then finding that the inside is full of sweet caramel perfection. And then seeing that there's a whole box just for you and you get to eat it all without one calorie passing through your lips. The only thing I didn't like was that the book had to come to an end.

My favorite line: "Yes," he finally said. "I do things with stuff. How ever did you know?"

Can't wait to read the next book in this series.

Be prepared to meet one of the most interesting heroines in historical romance: Miss Jane Fairfield. A wealthy heiress, Jane is determined to remain unmarried until her younger sister comes of age, in order to protect her from the matchmaking their overbearing and misguided uncle. She has decided to do so by being as outrageous and unappealing as possible -- and ends up the subject of a wager between Oliver Marshall, the bastard son of a duke with political ambitions, and the marquess that can help make those ambitions a reality. Watching Jane and Oliver struggle against falling in love, and having to make difficult choices to protect what is dear, is an absolute pleasure.

Milan takes many familiar romance tropes -- the overbearing guardian, the woman of means who wishes to remain unmarried, the man who finds it difficult to choose between love and success -- and turns them promptly on their head, delivering a romance that is both fun, frothy, and fast-paced as well as heartbreaking. While all romance readers know the main characters will end up together at the end, the satisfaction that comes with the consummation of the pairing in this novel is truly delicious.
