Review: The Heiress’s Daughter

What a charming read this was! I hadn’t read anything by Anne Gracie previously and the first couple of chapters moved a bit slowly. I quickly came to realize, however, that Gracie’s writing had drawn me in and her characters had won me over. Clarissa wants to find a life partner, but is certain that Lord Race “Rake” Randall can’t possibly be the one for her. Race is determined to show her that he is committed to courting her. The tension grew throughout the story and Gracie did a wonderful job pacing it all delightfully. I loved this one and read it in one sitting!



A dashing rake must prove he has changed his scandalous ways to win his one true love from the arms of another, in a witty new Regency romance from the national bestselling author of The Rake’s Daughter.

Heiress Clarissa Studley yearns to be loved for more than her fortune. Warmhearted, but plain and shy, she wishes to marry, but has two firm rules: no rakes and no fortune-hunters — her father was both, and she’ll never forget the misery he caused.

So, when Race, Lord Randall, starts to pay Clarissa attention, she knows she must keep him at a distance. Attractive and charming he might be, Race’s reputation precedes him and she’s observed first hand his flirtatious ways with London society beauties. But Race sees a beauty in Clarissa that others cannot, and for the first time in his life, he is truly in love. And when a rival for Clarissa’s affections appears — a handsome, wounded war hero, heir to his great-aunt’s fortune — Race becomes desperate as Clarissa seems tempted to make a safer, tamer choice.

Can Race convince Clarissa that his love is true and that she can trust him with her heart? And can Clarissa put aside her unhappy past, and follow her heart, despite the risk of loving a rake?
