Publisher's Summary

Miss Jane Fairfield can't do anything right. When she's in company, she always says the wrong thing - and rather too much of it. No matter how costly they are, her gowns fall on the unfortunate side of fashion. Even her immense dowry can't save her from being an object of derision.
And that's precisely what she wants. She'll do anything, even risk humiliation, if it means she can stay unmarried and keep her sister safe.
Mr. Oliver Marshall has to do everything right. He's the bastard son of a duke, raised in humble circumstances - and he intends to give voice and power to the common people. If he makes one false step, he'll never get the chance to accomplish anything. He doesn't need to come to the rescue of the wrong woman. He certainly doesn't need to fall in love with her. But there's something about the lovely, courageous Jane that he can't resist...even though it could mean the ruin of them both.
The Heiress Effect is the second full-length book in the Brothers Sinister series. It is preceded by The Governess Affair, a prequel novella, and The Duchess War, the first in the series. Each story stands alone, but those who prefer to read in order might want to start at the beginning.

Beautifully Crafted Story,

I stumbled on the First Brothers Sinister book while looking for books narrated by Rosalyn Landor and enjoyed it, so when this book released, I bought it. I was floored. The characters touched me in ways I didn't expect. If you read romance, you know pretty early on in a book who ends up with who -- it is just a surprise to follow the lead characters' journey. The journey for Jane and Oliver was rough and rocky. They have struggled throughout their lives to be accepted and to fit in, and feel that following their hearts will make their struggles meaningless. Reading about how they come to terms with what is really right for them -- not giving up their dreams, but redefining their dreams -- was moving and touching and just plain lovely. I read a good part of this book while on the train commuting to/from work, and had a hard time hiding my red weepy eyes. I believe this is a fabulous book and I expect it will be one I will listen to again and again.

Rosalyn Landor was outstanding with the delivery of the story

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

A humorous start and a serious ending!!!

A good read but the heroin was certainly eccentric. Perhaps in books it’s easy to find a man with the hero’s qualities to fall for someone this different from himself but in real life I find it hard to believe this can stand true. This is the one aspect I did not like about the book because I found it hard to relate to. Aside from that I liked the way the two love stories got presented and their timing. I would have liked to give this book a 3.5 but again since I can not, I gave it a four star rating.
