Book Blurb

Almost destitute

When she inherits a fortune!

Lady Tregowan’s Will story. The will that sees Aurelia Croome become wealthy forbids her from marrying the new Lord Tregowan. That wouldn’t be a concern if the only man to catch Aurelia’s eye during her first Season wasn’t Maximilian Penrose—Lord Tregowan! Why is it that no one else has Max’s honour, wit or tantalising good looks? The spectre of being poor again haunts her…but the thought of sacrificing passion for comfort is just as terrifying!


I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I was so excited to read book 3 in Janice Preston’s latest trilogy; Lady Tregowan’s Will. This trilogy has completely captivated me and I was a little intrigued by the premise of the storyline, you can find my reviews for books one and two here:

The Penniless Debutante is Aurelia’s story and I think it might be my favourite story of the three but maybe that might be because it feels like a wrapping up/conclusion to this wonderful trilogy that the author has created.

Aurelia I feel is the most spirited and vivacious of the three young women who have recently been thrust together in a world far from their own upbringings. I do feel reading all the books in order will enhance your experience as the characters lives do progress and you also witness how each individual girl copes with the news of their surprising inheritance. One of the conditions of the will is that they must not wed the current Lord Tregowan, no reason has been given to this but if any of the conditions are not met then the recipient will forfeit their portion of the estate. Ironically, Aurelia by chance meets Lord Tregowan on the day that changes her life forever and she’s not quite sure what to make of him as her reaction creates quite a stir within her emotions. Understandably, Lord Tregowan is upset and angry that his inheritance is no more and he’s perplexed to how three complete strangers are now in possession of what he thought was intended for him.

We follow Aurelia as she comes to terms with the changes in her fortune and how she learns more about the mysterious benefactor and also Lord Tregowan.

I loved Aurelia’s character, her feistiness, her beauty and her stubbornness to obey protocol. However, she hid her vulnerability regarding her upbringing and this side of her character gave her doubts concerning men in society. Lord Tregowan was certainly a mystery to begin with but his softer, less sure of himself side was adorable.

A gorgeous Regency romance that was a fitting finale to a glorious trilogy.
