St. George (the To Wed a Viking series) delivers a new twist on a love triangle in the addictive introduction to her Gilded Age Heiresses series. Evan Sterling, Duke of Rothschild, is drowning in debt left by his irresponsible father and must make a wealthy match if he hopes to provide for his mother and sisters. His mother arranges for him to marry American heiress Violet Crenshaw—but Violet’s heart belongs to another, and her bluestocking older sister, August, makes it her mission to save Violet from the match. When August encounters Evan, she realizes she’s met him once before without knowing his name—and the two shared a blistering kiss. Though August loves her work at her father’s company and is uninterested in marriage, Evan is captivated by her strength, wit, and willfulness, and switches his suit from Violet to August, setting off a seductive game of emotional tug-of-war. When their attraction deepens into a true connection, Evan struggles with guilt over knowing that August does not want to be married, while August feels pressured to choose between love and career. The result is a fun, fresh historical romance that gives both formidable characters their due. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, the Seymour Agency. (Jan.)
