Ever since reading The Countess, I’d been anxious to find out what was going to happen between Suzette and Daniel.
Suzette is an heiress. She and her two sisters have inherited ...more
REDUX=It is a Latin word that means "brought back" or "revisited" and "The Heiress" is Suzette and Daniel's story told from their point of view and happening at the same time as "The Countess". To those who read the first one, the first 210 pages will defenatly feel redundant, and like me, they'll skim through those pages, especially the dialog. I wasn't in the mood to read over the same conversations so there was a lot of skimm ...more
Bizarrely enough, this story could have actually worked if the characters did n ...more
Suzette needs to marry quickly to pay off her fathers gambling debt but wants to find a land rich, money poor husband so that he will al ...more
Suzette needs to find a husband quickly. Preferably a gentlemen who is down on his luck and in need of a wealthy wife. She has no other way of getting her dowry - which is much needed in order to pay off her father's gambling debts and save the family from scandal and ultimately ruin.
Daniel Woodrow seems the perfect candidate. He has a title, he's single, he's handsome and he's broke. Or so he says. For Daniel hasn't been completely honest with Suzette. He tells a white lie about his lack of for ...more
I did not expect this book to be a rehash of The Countess. Once I realized this, I thought, "Why not?" I had enjoyed Julia Quinn's Mr. Cavendish, I Presume despite the poor and sometimes scathing reviews so I thought that The Heiress and I would get along fairly well. Imagine my disappointment, then, when it basically summarized or repeated The Countess for nearly 2/3 of the book ...more
This is book two in the Madison Sister’s trilogy and it began at about the same place and time frame as book one so whilst there is a lot of ‘retelling’ its go great to read it from a different point of view and see the story further progress book 1.
Daniel and Suzette are so cute together. Both weary for marriage and love they find each other tossed together. But soon passions are unable to be controlled and t ...more
The Heiress (Madison Sisters #2)
by Lynsay Sands
This is the Second book in the Madison Sisters Trilogy and just a tiny bit weaker than the first book “The Countess” which was fabulously funny and romantic.
This is a comedy of errors since Suzette wants a poor husband, one that she can manage and manipulate. She thinks that she has found it with Daniel Woodward, a close friend of her sister the Countesses husband. However, what she does not know about him can really throw her plans in the rubbis ...more
Suzette meets Daniel at a party and comes on quite strong about marriage, so he pretends he is poor, even though it is the opposite. He is then very surprised that she wants to marry him even more.
Daniel decides to marry her pretty much because of the ...more
Heiress doesn't just do a recap in the first capter the whole first half of the book is retold. What was Lynsay thinking? She has done a grave disservice to her readers with this stunt.

When stephenie laurens did this with the black quartet she did it really really well. but while the four books happened at the same time, which took talent. they happened in different parts of the world except towards the end of each book as characters joined each other.
this book was the exact same story as the countess only told from another characters point of view, so i felt up until the last few chapters, i'd already rea ...more
