"An Heiress at Heart" by Jennifer Delamere is a wonderful, well-written story that grabs the reader's attention and holds it to the very last word. The Prologue takes place in New South Wales, Australia, in 1846 and introduces Lizzie Poole, her brother Tom and Edward and Ria Smythe. However, Chapter One moves the story to London five years later with Lizzie taking center stage and Geoffrey Somerville introduced as her intense yet appealing male counterpart.
"An Heiress at Heart" is a tale of mistaken identity, true love and British aristocracy with strong characters who have plenty of flaws and conflicts. The juxtaposition of good and evil is heightened by the well-defined characters. Delamere weaves intrigue, mystery, humor and family through the story to make it a must read in the "sweet" category. No graphic sex here, but the characters are well aware of it.
