The Fortune Hunter

Daisy Goodwin

The bestselling author of The American Heiress (2011) returns with a historical novel featuring a dramatic love triangle. England, 1875. Less-than-beautiful Charlotte Baird is the heiress to her family's fortune. When expert horseman Bay Middleton arrives for hunting season, Charlotte can’t help but wonder if he is yet another poor suitor after her fortune. Their budding relationship is disrupted with the arrival of married-but-bored Empress Elizabeth of Austria, who appoints Bay as her guide on the hunts and soon sets her eye on him. "An enchanting, beautifully written page-turner,” writes Publishers Weekly.
