Love At Any Cost by Julie Lessman
He’s looking to take care of his family. She’s looking to take care of her heart. Trouble is . . . love’s looking to take care of them both.
Cassidy McClare is a spunky Texas oil heiress without a fortune who would just as soon hogtie a man as look at him. Jilted by a fortune hunter, Cassidy travels west hoping a summer visit with her wealthy cousins in San Francisco will help her forget her heartache. But no sooner is she settled in beautiful California than Jamie McKenna, a handsome pauper looking to marry well, captures her heart. Can love prevail when Jamie discovers that Cassidy is poorer than he is? And can Cassidy ever learn to fully trust her heart to a man?
Bestselling author Julie Lessman brings the delectable Gilded Age to life in this sumptuous new series. Join your favorite romantic storyteller as she moves to the hills of San Francisco for more romance, passion, and surprising revelations.
Fans of Julie Lessman will delight in her newest book, Love at Any Cost, which is the first book in her new series (The Heart of San Francisco). Unlike her previous books that all centered around the passionate O'Connor's in Boston this series moves over to San Francisco and tells the stories of the McClare cousins.
I really found this book fun to read, it is a lot lighter than her previous books but the character development is still great and the attention to details is great. I enjoyed the setting of San Francisco, especially since I was just there this past fall. Cassidy really makes this story fun and I thoroughly enjoyed her. I am looking forward to reading about the other cousins in the coming books and know waiting for them to each release will not be fun.
This book I would recommend to fans of Julie Lessman and those who love historical romance with a flair for drama!
*I received this book from Revell for the purpose of this review.
