A Bright Young Thing
Astra Davies finds herself in rather a tight spot when her parents die suddenly, leaving her with a heap of debts and damaging family secrets to sort out. Unwilling to enter a loveless marriage with a wealthy suitor, she instead makes the audacious decision to make her own way in the world.
But the road to financial independence is a rocky one, and it’s made all the more difficult when her business partner turns out to be a fool who threatens to ruin her reputation along with their company. As if that weren’t enough, Astra also catches the attention of the extremely eligible (and extremely irresistible) Earl of Dunreaven. Which would be fine, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s as hard up as she is. Their flirtation also puts Astra directly in the crosshairs of her longtime nemesis, the wealthy, influential Lady Millicent, who’s now hell bent on bringing Astra down for good.
Astra will have to dig deep and call on strength and skills she never knew she had if she’s going to prove to herself and the world that she is more than just a pretty Bright Young Thing.
