Stars: 3 / 5
Recommendation: If you are into period setting novels with romance and mystery along-side, this book is one to try for sure, although I feel that the crescendo of the trilogy ended in a slightly low tone.
Heiress for Hire is the first book in the Duke's Heiress series by Madeline Hunter first published in April of 2020. The first of the trilogy revolves around Minerva Hepplewhite - a woman on the run to escape her past - and Chase Radnor - one of the nephews of Duke of Hollinburgh and a private investigator.

The stories revolve around these three women; how the Radnor men, Duke's nephews, entice them; how the men and women come together to justly use the inheritance while finding love, future and happiness.
