Publisher Description

"The Most Enchanting, Fascinating And Marvelous Love-Story Ever Written!"

So declared the front page of the New York Family Story Paper as it launched the fifth serialized novel by pioneering undercover journalist Nellie Bly. Rightly famous for exposing society's ills, from brutal insane asylums to corrupt politicians, she used the pages of the New York World to bring down all manner of frauds, cheats, and charlatans. 

What no one knows is that Nellie Bly was also a novelist. Because, of the twelve novels Bly wrote between 1889 and 1895, eleven have been lost - until now! Newly discovered by author David Blixt (What Girls Are Good For, The Master Of Verona), Nellie Bly's lost works of fiction are available for the first time! These are The Lost Novels of Nellie Bly!

Dorette Lover is an artist's model! Having secured employment at last, the beautiful Dorette is in high spirits now that she can support herself and her poor old, blind mother. But no sooner has she she accepted the modeling job for the famous painter Herman Van Dyke than she witnesses a terrible crime—a dead body, with a bloodied man standing over the corpse. Yet she feels certain the man is innocent of murder. As the only witness against him, she promises that she will never testify. In desperation he answers that she will have no choice, unless she becomes—his wife!

So Dorette Lover weds Wayne Webb, scion to an old family and fabulous wealth. Her mother vanished, Dorette has no choice but to join high society, enduring the snubs of the elite. But when Wayne is cleared of the murder charge, Dorette's misery is compounded. It was not she who saved Wayne, but the beautiful Cora Woodworth, Wayne's beloved, and now Dorette's rival for his love.

Unbeknownst to them all, a pair of villains vie for control of Cora's wealth and Dorette's secret inheritance. The two women form an unlikely bond, as they both struggle to remain . . .Wayne's Faithful Sweetheart!

Bonus feature: This volume includes Bly's New York World articles that inspired her novels!
