London is said to be the glittering jewel of society, a world unto itself—but to Julia Elliston it is a city of shadows. Her life is swiftly dissolving into scandal. And in Victorian society, even a whisper of scandal—substantiated or not—can be the death of a young woman’s reputation.

Now under the watchful eye of Lord Roy Pierson, one of most influential men in England, Julia begrudgingly accepts his protection. But Chance Macy’s power is far-reaching as well, and he is eager to assert his claim over her.

Thrust into society as the Emerald Heiress, Julia is the toast of London, a celebrated curiosity. But in reality she’s trapped between the clutches of two powerful men. Aided only by a gentleman whose intentions she prays she can trust, Julia must finally take control of her own fate—but outwitting one’s foe rarely goes according to plan.
In the second book of the Price of Privilege series, Dotta has brought forth the complicated world of high society England and makes it understandable to readers. Her characters are charming, but she throws in a few scoundrels to even things out.

SUMMARY: Julia Elliston looks at London as the city of shadows. Her life is slowly coming apart due to scandals, most of which are not by her hand. She learns she is the daughter of Lord Roy Pierson, an influential man in England, and he uses her as his pawn to bring down Chance Macy, who appears to have married Julia some time ago. Julia suddenly finds herself thrust into society as the Emerald Heiress. There is one man she hopes she can trust to help her outwit both Lord Pierson and Macy, so she can be in control of her own life.
