Baroness Adele von Mueller learns the sweetest love is forbidden….
Baroness Adele von Mueller
It’s 1903 and free-spirited 18-year-old Baroness Adele von Mueller has just arrived to live with her spinster aunt in New York City. After a previous impropriety tarnishes her reputation with the German nobility, her father sends her overseas to give her one last chance to marry into money and save the family’s name. Instead, Adele finds herself falling for charming and wickedly handsome Nick Mason, the foreman of a paper factory, who is as gorgeous as he is poor. As family secrets are revealed, Adele learns there’s much more riding on her marrying wealthy than just keeping the family’s name…
Nick Mason has a habit of falling in love with every girl he sees. An orphan, former newspaper seller and now a foreman at a paper mill, he’s nursing a bruised heart after being dumped by a laundry girl. But when he meets Baroness Adele disguised on a night out as a maid in her family’s house, he knows right away there’s something different about her. Once she reveals her true identity, he’s even more intrigued. Nick has fallen for white women before, but never one so wealthy, and never one he knew he couldn’t live without. With most people firmly against their love, he must visit her in secrecy to make their romance blossom.
Nick and Adele must stand up to a society and a family that won’t accept their love for what it is: true and enduring. Can they withstand the storm, or will they be forced apart by a deck that’s stacked against them in this steamy Victorian romance?
This historical interracial romance/Victorian romance novel marks Anya Silverthorne’s debut.
This book was such a fun and adorable and amazing read! I started it, stayed up late, kept reading some more, and finished it. I love when I get that in books! Because lately it seems like it takes me forever and a day to read a book OR I abandon all hope of ever sleeping and read it in one go. There has literally been zero in between. But The Baroness of New York obviously fell into the read in one go category.
Now, this book was so good that the first thing I said was how good it was instead of taking a second to appreciate the gorgeous cover, so I’m going to do that now. I just can’t help it! I see a pretty cover and I can’t not say something! It’s just one of those covers that’s just perfect for the book. Plus it’s a Victorian romance, and you just know how good those are! AND it adds in a class difference, which is like candy for me. Seriously, all of my favorite Victorian/Edwardian/whatever stories seem to have some sort of class struggle. But anyways, read this one!
I also have to say that I am so happy there is a second book coming out, because if there wasn’t I’d have been so upset! I mean, cliffhangers are like sweet cruelty. While I like books that come with everything neatly wrapped up with a bow, sometimes I want that cliffhanger that leaves me waiting for the next installment.
