I have been excitedly awaiting the release of “A Gilded Lady” ever since I finished “The Spice King” (the first book in Elizabeth Camden’s “Hope and Glory” series). It was everything I hoped for and more! I can’t wait for Bethany House to release the third and final installment in the series – I’m hoping it’s sooner than later. . .
“A Gilded Lady” continues the drama of the Delacroix siblings, this time telling the story of Caroline and her dramatic role as secretary to the First Lady of the United States. Nathaniel Trask is the head of the Secret Service team for the president, a challenging job as mounting threats against the president and his wife leave little room for anything else in his life – even his growing attraction to the lovely Caroline.
With secrets from their past threatening to destroy their future, Caroline and Nathaniel are swept into a dangerous plot that is filled with heartbreak, sacrifice, and hopeful trust that everything can still turn out right in the end.
I adore the master storytelling, sweeping plots, vivid characters, and epic romances that fill the pages of Elizabeth Camden’s books. “A Gilded Lady” was one of my favorites from this talented author – so that tells you just how much I loved it! It can be read separately from “The Spice King” and you will still totally understand it, but to fully enjoy the overarching storyline I do recommend reading both in sequence. Then you will join me in cheering for the final “Hope and Glory” story to be released asap – I am holding my breath to discover what Luke’s story will have in store for us!
