The Penniless DebutanteThe Penniless Debutante by Janice Preston

4.5 stars

The Penniless Debutante is book 3 of the Lady Tregowan’s Will series of historical romances. Three young woman are drawn together at the reading of Lady Tregowan’s will; they discover that they are half-sisters.

This is the story of Aurelia, the penniless daughter of a milliner. The timing of the will gives Aurelia opportunities she could only dream of; however, the will has stipulations for the inheritors which will test Aurelia to her limits.

Max Penrose, the Earl of Tregowan, has been crushed by the news that he won’t be inheriting from the will of the late Lady Tregowan. He had planned to use the money to pull himself and his estate out of debt while supporting his mother and sister. He’s left completely puzzled by the late changes to the will.

On a coach to London Max is distracted from his troubles by a young woman, but he believes that she has secrets about herself; these become very apparent when they arrive in London and Max is shocked by what he learns.

A lovely finale to this trilogy, I have read about Aurelia in the stories about her two half-sisters and I was eager to read her tale. She had quite a battle with her conscience before she settled with what made her happiest. I have enjoyed the whole series, and the stories are ideal books to read for a bit of afternoon escapism.

Almost destitute

When she inherits a fortune!

The will that sees Aurelia Croome become wealthy forbids her from marrying the new Lord Tregowan. That wouldn’t be a concern if the only man to catch Aurelia’s eye during her first Season wasn’t Maximilian Penrose—Lord Tregowan! Why is it that no one else has Max’s honor, wit or tantalizing good looks? The specter of being poor again haunts her—but the thought of sacrificing passion for comfort is just as terrifying!

The Cinderella Heiress (Lady Tregowan's Will Book 2)The Cinderella Heiress by Janice Preston

4 stars

The Cinderella Heiress is book two of Lady Tregowan’s Will series of historical romances. When Beatrice Fothergill is informed that she is one of three beneficiaries of Lady Tregowan’s will, it provides her with the means to escape from her ruthless and overbearing brother and his wife; no longer does she need to feel grateful for the roof that they begrudgingly provide for her.

Lord Jack Kingswood met Beatrice on the road when her carriage broke down. He escorted her safely home, but was concerned by her obvious fear of her family. Bad weather prevented him from calling on her and it was many weeks before the pair met again. Now Beatrice’s brother has found out about the inheritance and Beatrice needs Jacks’ help once more.

Janice Preston has created two very likable characters in Beatrice and Jack; both had obstacles they needed to overcome and I enjoyed their stories. Having read book one of the series I was already acquainted with several of the secondary characters and it was fun to read about some of the events from an alternative view to the first book. I now look forward to reading the third book in the series.
