5 Captivating Stars The stains on my soul are vast and permanent I don t deserve a woman like you It s been a while since we ve devoured a Historical romance and we re not sure why because we absolutely adore them This is our first book by this author, and the first time we ve experienced a story set in the Gilded Age period and didn t we just love it Joanna Shupe lured us into her world by vividly and beautifully capturing the essence of New York 1887 with her stunning imagery Thanks to the descriptiveness of her prose we not only experienced this journey with Emmett Cavanaugh and Elizabeth Sloane, we felt as though we had been transported back in time with them to live it.
and it doesn t get better than that New York City S Gilded Age Shimmers With Unimaginable Wealth And Glittering Power The Men Of The Knickerbocker Club Know This Than Anyone Else But For One Millionaire, The Business Of Love Is Not What He Expected Born In The Slums Of Five Points, Emmett Cavanaugh Climbed His Way To The Top Of A Booming Steel Empire And Now Holds Court In An Opulent Fifth Avenue Mansion His Rise In Stations, However, Has Done Little To Elevate His Taste In Women He Loathes The City S High Society Types, But A Rebellious And Beautiful Blue Blood Just Might Change All ThatElizabeth Sloane S Mind Is Filled With Than The Latest Parlor Room Gossip Lizzie Can Play The Stock Exchange As Deftly As New York S Most Accomplished Brokers But She Needs A Man To Put Her Skills To Use Emmett Reluctantly Agrees When The Stunning Socialite Asks Him To Back Her Trades And Split The Profits But Love And Business Make Strange Bedfellows, And As Their Fragile Partnership Begins To Crack, They Ll Discover A Passion Frenzied Than The Trading Room Floor Magnate4 StarsSet in New York during the Gilded Age, an atypical setting in this genre, Magnate incorporates many of the historical, social and financial aspects of the time, including the great blizzard of 1888 as well as the conflicts between the old money Dutch Knickerbocker families and the nouveau riche, who acquired their fortunes through industry and technology These together with the backdrop of the rail networks and the New York Stock Exchange successfully immerse the reader in the time period The heroine, Elizabeth Sloan, is wonderful Her determination and tenacity in achieving her goal of establishing her own investment firm is admirable as is her standing up to those members of her social circle who believe women should be nothing than adornments for their husbands.
The hero, Emmet Cavanaugh I purchased a print copy of Magnate by Joanna Shupe for a buddy read at Goodreads Thanks to Andrea, Ash, Bubu, Christina, Jill, Linda, Luli, Lyuda, Nefise and Oana for introducing me to this author and for the great discussion.
I was intrigued with the heroine who starts her own brokerage firm when women were expected to leave the financial world to men The modern day financial market isn t an interest, but I was captivated by the historical details in this book The Gilded Age isn t a time period I m normally drawn to, but Ms Shupe charmed me enough to anticipate continuing with her series.
Her high society upbringing didn t prepare Lizzie Sloane for business, but her aptitude with stock speculation influences her dream of opening a brokerage firm First, she ll need a man to front her business, and who bet Joanna Shupe showed a great deal of promise with her debut series set in Regency England, but this new series set several decades later in Gilded Age New York is in a class of its own.
I really enjoyed the introductory novella to this series, and had very high hopes for the first full book, Magnate I enjoyed it much, much than I expected.
The research, the world building and the believable characters make this one stand out from your average historical romance Every page felt like I really was in New York City in the 1880s, from the atmosphere, to the characters attitudes, to the little touches of everyday life that are so different to our own.
I really love the second half of the nineteenth century as a setting, because it is somewhere between the Regenc
