about

Sharon Page sparkles in this poignant and irresistibly entertaining follow-up to her breakout novel, An American Duchess 

Lady Julia Hazelton is the most dazzling among 1920s England's bright young things. But rather than choosing the thrill of wanton adventure like so many of her contemporaries, Julia shocks society with her bold business aspirations. Determined to usher the cursed Worthington estate into a prosperous, modern new era, and thus preserve her beloved late fiancé's legacy, the willful Julia tackles her wildest, most unexpected adventure in Cal Carstairs, the reluctant new Earl of Worthington. 

The unconventional American artist threatens everything Julia seeks to protect while stirring desires she thought had died in the war. For reasons of his own, Cal has designed the ultimate revenge. Rather than see the estate prosper, he intends to destroy it. But their impulsive marriage—one that secures Julia's plans as well as Cal's secrets—proves that passion is ambition's greatest rival. Unless Cal ends his quest to satisfy his darkest vendetta, he stands to ruin his Worthington wife and all her glittering dreams.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Good As Maybe Even Better Than An American Duchess "The Worthington Wife" past expectations for me. I was expecting a fluffy historical romance but it was more than that with mystery and suspense. Julia Hazelton, the heroine, is energetic, kind hearted but also a risk taker. As the new Earl of Worthington, Cal Carstairs defiant character also fit naturally into the story but he did brood a bit too much about his past mistakes. Julia and Cal struggle to see eye to eye. Julia wants Cal to take on his new role as Earl and make some much needed changes to his estates and tenants. Cal wants to sell off the estate and pay back his relatives for the poor treatment he received growing up. Between their very different personalities and upbringings, Julia and Cal struggle with their obvious chemistry, each trying to win out their own agenda for the other person. The book was longer than I was anticipating but it kept me engaged and had a good pace. I did wish Zoe was in the plot a bit more as she connects the reader to the last book "An American Duchess". Julia's desire to help widows by funding small business was admirable but could have been developed throughout the plot in more detail. I give it a 5 star because I was captivated throughout the entire novel and didn't find any major faults. I would definitely recommend this book!
