I have been so excited to get my hands on “The Last Heiress”by Mary Ellis!
And may I just say… this one is different!
Mary Ellis made a fan out of me with the very first story in this series… ironically enough a FREEBIE novella – and I’ve been hooked ever since!
In the first two novels of this series, we see women who had lost everything because of the war – money, home, family…
The Last Heiress is somewhat the opposite. Amanda Dunn is what the name implies – an heiress. She is every inch the lady and she is in America for one reason and one reason only.
She could never have expected what happened and once she finds herself in the inconvenient position of having fallen for someone who is most certainly not the kind of man she might have expected – she has some choices to make.
Those decisions are made even more difficult by her well-meaning family and the man in question himself.
Not only has Mary written another terrific story, she has introduced even more about the Civil war era that I don’t remember from history class!
Oh if only we’d had these kind of books in high school…

And here’s a bit more about this wonderful book from Harvest House:
Bestselling author Mary Ellis (A Widow’s Hope) presents The Last Heiress, a new romantic standalone that intertwines the lives of a British manufacturing heiress and an American merchant caught in the turbulent time of the War Between the States.
Amanda Dunn set sail from England for Wilmington, North Carolina, hoping to somehow restore shipments of cotton for her family’s textile mills, which have been severely disrupted by the American Civil War. But when she meets Nathaniel Cooper, her desire to conduct business and quickly return to England changes.
Amanda’s family across the sea deems the hardworking merchant unsuitable for the lovey and accomplished heiress. And when Nate himself begins to draw away, Amanda has her own battle for a happy future on her hands.
As the War Between the States heats up, Nate’s brother, a Confederate officer, comes for a visit. Nate begins to think about joining up—not in support of slavery but to watch his brother’s back. Yet will this potentially life-changing decision put the union between him and Amanda she so wishes for in jeopardy?
