End of a Ridiculously Scandalous and Angst-y Era

Price of Privilege

Jessica Dotta

     Having finally discovered the truth of her birthright, Julia Elliston is determined to outwit Chance Macy at his own game. Holding a secret he’d kill to keep, however, is proving more difficult than she imagined.

     Just when Julia thinks she’s managed to untangle herself from Macy’s clutches, he changes tactics with a risky ploy. As the scandal of the century breaks loose, drawing rooms all over London whisper what so far newspapers have not dared to print: Macy’s lost bride is none other than Lord Pierson’s daughter—and one of the most controversial cases of marital law ever seen comes before Victorian courts.

     Though Julia knows Macy’s version of events is another masterful manipulation, public opinion is swaying in his favor. Caught in a web of deceit and lies, armed only with a fledgling faith, Julia must face her fiercest trial yet.

     I couldn’t find an excerpt for this one, but you can find samples through amazon and Barnes and Noble. Although if you’ve gotten this far in the series you have a pretty good look at what this one will be like and you’re probably too invested in the series to give up now. If you haven’t read the other books, stop now and pick up the first one.

     Price of Privilege  was a fantastic wrap up for the series. It exemplified everything that the series had been building up, and it summed up all the values so perfectly. It was actually really surprising, and gave me an oddly fulfilled feeling.

     This story is bookended by Julia’s adult self looking back on the events that the books detailed. It was a tad confusing, so I had to make sure to be on top of it. I loved how everything unconventionally turned out. It is a fantastic sequel, and one any fan wouldn’t want to miss.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest and complete review.
