*Starred Review* Lydia Eastlake has been the toast of the town, but that is about to come to an abrupt end. In retrospect Lydia realizes she should have read the letters from her banker more carefully, but she never thought her considerable fortune would ever run out. Now she is left with one option if she doesn’t want to learn how to economize: find a wealthy man to marry before word of her financial reversal gets out. After meeting kind and sexy Captain Ned Lockton, Lydia thinks she may have found her perfect match, but what she doesn’t know is that Ned, whose own family is rapidly draining the ancestral coffers, is hunting for a spouse, too, and only heiresses need apply. RITA Award-winner Brockway works her own irresistible brand of alchemy by taking superbly complex characters and an enthralling plot spiced with unexpected twists and deftly spinning the whole thing into literary gold. Delightfully witty and dazzlingly imaginative. --John Charles
