When a holiday blizzard brings together a pair of reluctant lovers, the result threatens their reputations … and may cost them their hearts.

Feisty and independent American heiress Violet Howard swears she'll never wed a crusty British aristocrat. Will, the Earl of Merlton, is determined to salvage his family's fortune without succumbing to a marriage of convenience.

But when a snowstorm leaves Violet and Will stranded and alone, their sudden chemistry will challenge good intentions. Seized by a desire that burns through the night, they'll toss reservations aside in favor of the heat found in each other's arms.

Will their passion survive the storm? Will they realize they've found a love to last them through all seasons?

MY THOUGHTS

An Heiress for All Seasons is a novella based on the Debutante Files by Sophie Jordan.  This story follows shortly after A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin (4/5 Hearts) and is about Will, the Earl of Merlton (Declan’s cousin) and American heiress Violet Howard as they find love during the Christmas holidays.  Violet and her mother are invited to the Earl of Merlton’s estate in the hopes of making a match.  Violet, on the other hand, has other ideas.  She wants to marry for love and in fact, wants to marry her father’s man of affairs that she has left behind in America and vows to hate the Earl.  Things do not go as planned when Will seduces her and she falls helplessly in love with him.

As with novellas, this was a very, very short read.  In fact, I felt it was too short that I felt the “falling in love” was just too fast for my liking.  It really felt like the characters were falling in LUST with each other.  There was a twist at the end which sort of made the readers see that their love was true but it really did not change my impression of their love.  I felt that this plot would have been better developed had it not been a novella.

An Heiress was an OK read.

    I liked this book, it was likable and had some good moments, but most novella's I have a hard time with because they always feel too rushed for me.
