When I was a teenager, romance novels were all I read. I’m pretty sure I owned stock in Harlequin. My second favorite reads were murder mysteries. The Unwanted Heiress by Amy Corwin reminded me of how much fun a good romance can be, especially when combined with a murder and a scandalous scheme or two.

In Charlotte, Corwin provides us with a protagonist most of us have been, at one point or another. She has a great deal of moxy, but has been led to doubt herself due to repeated rejections. You ha

What a fun novel! Henry James broke my heart with Isabel Archer in "Portrait of a Lady," but Amy Corwin gives us the kind of heroine we love, ambitious, intelligent, outspoken, free-spirited and determined never to give up her independence no matter who seeks her hand in marriage. Not even the most charming, titled, sought-after bachelor in town will tempt her. (Of course, she *might* underestimate his sweetness and sex appeal...)

Unlike the famously ill-fated Isabel, this American heroine in Eu

What a fun novel! Henry James broke my heart with Isabel Archer in "Portrait of a Lady," but Amy Corwin spares us the tragedy while giving us the kind of heroine we love--ambitious, intelligent, outspoken, free-spirited and determined never to give up her independence no matter who seeks her hand in marriage. Not even the most charming, titled, sought-after bachelor in town will tempt her. (Of course, she *might* underestimate his sweetness and sex appeal...)

Wow! Ms. Corwin certainly knows how to take a difficult topic and turn it around for the reader. Who in the world wants to be unwanted? I was drawn to this heroine because of her "unwanted" status and was rooting for her all the way through to the end. And I also kinda "felt" for the hero who was reluctant at first to give this heroine a second look. I was cheered and definitely did cheer when Charlotte and Nathaniel took gradual, little steps toward a loving relationship that ended happily. I w ...more

This historical romance/mystery is delightful, witty, and full of suspense! The characters are smart and likeable, from the MCs to the supporting characters. One of my favorites is John Archer, who is similar to many of Jane Austen's matchmaking characters. The female lead is strong and intelligent without being obnoxious and the Duke is downright comical at times in his avoidance of persistent ladies. Absolutely adorable novel!

An American heiress and "bluestocking" who doesn't quite fit in and a Duke every woman wants seem a bit mismatched. Until a debutante is murdered and the Duke (Nathaniel) becomes a suspect. Then Charlotte comes to his aide and the two grow close. Three's murder, mystery, romance and some outrageously fun secondary characters.
