Publisher's Summary

Desperately seeking a husband....
Suzette is not like other heiresses; she wants a poor husband, a gentleman who will be so grateful for her dowry that he will allow her access to it so that she can pay off her father's gambling debts. When this alluring beauty encounters Daniel Woodrow - handsome, titled, single, and even more impoverished than she could have hoped for - it seems Suzette's wildest dreams have come true.
But Daniel has not been truthful. Tired of being accosted by an endless stream of vapid coquettes and their fortune-hunting mothers, Daniel has decided to plead poverty to stop them in their tracks. Yet here is a most refreshing and delectable lady, who claims to be thrilled by his penury. Now all Daniel has to do to find true happiness is to keep a little white lie alive... while avoiding a villain who's determined to prevent this union by any means necessary.

Fleeced by Sands!!!

What would have made The Heiress better?

The Heiress is a copy of The Countess for more than 1/2 of the book. I am so disappointed. Why would Ms. Sands, her editors and publishers think it was okay to tell the same story in two different books with the same characters???

Has The Heiress turned you off from other books in this genre?

No - historical romance is my favorite genre.

What three words best describe Faye Adelle’s voice?

I can't think of three words, but I think her narration was okay. It isn't the best, but it also isn't the worst I've ever listened too. I won't completely turn away from books narrated by Faye Adelle, but they may not be my first choice either.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Heiress?

I would cut more than half of the book because it's a near copy of The Countess. The Countess is a much better book although when you get to the part of the book that isn't a copy of The Countess, it's actually pretty good.

Any additional comments?

I can't decide if I'll listen to more books by Ms. Sands or not AFTER I finish listening to The Husband Hunt. I really want to finish the series and here Lisa and Robert's story.

Well if you already purchaed The Countess then don't waste your $$$ on the Heiress because the author basically made two books from one. She narrated The Countess with Dickey a/k/a Richard and Christiana and The Heiress with two other characters but basically told the same story. The Heiress tells the the story from Daniel and Suzette's characters. The Heiress Part 1, I basically skipped through and a good portion of Part 2 until they got to the part where Daniel and Suzette were running off to marry.
