Spotlight: An Heiress at Heart by Jennifer Delamere + giveaway!

A youthful indiscretion has cost Lizzie Poole more than just her honor. After five years living in exile, she’s finally returning home, but she’s still living a secret life. Her best friend, Ria’s dying wish was for Lizzie to assume her identity, return to London, and make amends that Ria herself would never live to make. Bearing a striking resemblance to her friend, and harboring more secrets than ever before, Lizzie embarks on a journey that tempts her reckless heart once again . . .

A committed clergyman, Geoffrey Somerville’s world is upended when he suddenly inherits the title of Lord Somerville. Now he’s invited to every ball and sought after by the matchmaking mothers of London society. Yet the only woman to capture his heart is the one he cannot have: his brother’s young widow, Ria. Duty demands he deny his feelings, but his heart longs for the mysterious beauty. With both their futures at stake, will Lizzie be able to keep up her fa├žade? Or will she find the strength to share her secret and put her faith in true love?



Isn't this book just gorgeous?! I read it this past week and it's really a wonderful story and was so fun to read. 



It had a storyline I'd not read before and found very interesting. Lizzie, the heroine, has returned to London to fulfill her best friend's dying wish: Taking over her friend's identity and mending the broken relationships Ria had left behind years earlier when she fled London to be with the man she loved.



An Heiress at Heart is Jennifer Delamere's debut novel and I gotta say she's one I'm really looking forward to reading again. I loved the characters, the premise and how things all came together.

  7. I'd love to be someone more interesting than I am! I tend to be really shy and inhibited, so for me, the idea of being someone else is really intriguing :).

    The book sounds great, and you are right, the cover is really pretty!

  9. I don't think that I would hide my identity, you only get caught lying in the end. Anyway, this storyline sounds really interesting. Thanks

    1. Isn't that the truth. I wouldn't mind giving it a try if it was just for fun for a night or two but not in any real situation. I'd be terrible at it too and would totally get caught ;)

  10. I am not sure I would ever hide my identity. When I was in high school, I knew 2 girls (identical twins) who by choice went to separate high schools, and they would switch up and go to the other's school for fun occasionally.

  11. Hi,
    This sounds like an awesome read. I like the cover as well :-)
    If I could be anyone else I'd be a private investigatior and do undercover work. Or maybe a princess who disguises herself as a wife and a mother of 6 ;)

  15. I suppose I might if the circumstances called for it, and who I'd be would depend on those circumstances. Basically, though, I'm happy being me.
