Lady Sybil expects Stephen, her husband's heir, to marry her beautiful eldest daughter, Araminta. But when Sybil and Stephen meet, a forbidden passion erupts between the two in this steamy Regency romance.
Despite proud, fiery Araminta and her shy, plain sister, Hetty, parading their very different charms before him, the young viscount-in-waiting is drawn to the quiet, unassuming Lady Sybil who has been trapped in a loveless marriage for twenty years while her husband spends most of his time with his mistress.
As Stephen introduces Sybil to every pleasure she's been deprived of, duty and passion become a deep and mutual love.
But with the shock arrival of a contender to the estate, Sybil realises that what she's set in motion, initially to save the family inheritance, might have tragic consequences.
Expect the unexpected in this Regency-set 'Dynasty' where true love triumphs in a world of ambition, dynastic rivalries and the pursuit of wealth.
Her Gilded Prison is Book 1 in the Daughters of Sin series, however it can be read as a stand-alone.
Surprises abound in this steamy, suspenseful Regency-set drama where each nobly-born Partington sister will win the husband they truly deserve.
What Readers are Saying:
"Oh my! What a great read. The characters were extraordinary and believable. I couldn't put it down..."
"This is a good story of misalignments and couples trying to make the best of bad situations. Twists and turns abound as this impossible romance blossoms and you really cheer for this couple as things work themselves out."
"It's refreshing to read a Regency that doesn't remind me of others, and I found the heroine to be very relatable. It's also nice to get an older female lead, and I really enjoyed the family dynamics."
"Talk about risqué! Keep the fans close to cool you off. A tale of lust and love that is sure to curl your toes."

Needs a good Proofread
The plot is unique and compelling, the writing decent, and the pacing fine. The text, however, has many typos. A missing letter here, misuse of punctuation there, several places where the sentence could use commas... I recommend the book because it’s quite a fun read, but I wish it had been proofread beforehand! Errors are quite distracting, and there aren’t just one or two.
Interesting start to a series, look forward to more
This was a different and intriguing romance. Stephen struggles to pay his mother's debts and suddenly he is an heir. He visits his benefactor and family, and things get interesting. Stephen realizes what he wants and aims to get what he wants. Sybil is not the heroine you expect but she has lived a very miserable life, and I was glad she got some happiness.
I received a copy of this book through Candid Book Reviews in exchange for an honest review.
