About the author:
Jeanette Watts couldn't help but notice that all American romances seemed to be set in the South or the West. A staunch Yankee girl, she asked what is unromantic about the North, or the East? After living for four years in Pittsburgh and falling deeply in love with southwestern Pennsylvania, she found it the perfect location for a love story.
Besides writing, she is also a dance instructor, costumer, the artistic director for several dance companies, an actress, and a history buff.
Brains and Beauty
The last thing a proper Victorian woman says - is what she's really thinking.
Regina Waring seems to have it all: a loving husband, a successful business, and the most expensive wardrobe in town. But nothing is as it appears. Her husband is critical and demanding, the business teeters on ruin, even the opulent wardrobe is a clever illusion.
Regina's life is a delicate high wire act; one misstep and she will plunge to her doom. Attempting to keep her equilibrium, she appeases the husband, dresses the part, and never, never says what she's really thinking. That would get in the way of getting things done. And if there's one thing Regina does really well, it is getting things done.
Enter Thomas Baldwin: young and handsome and completely off limits. Regina is smitten at first sight. To her joy, and despite her caution, he becomes her safety net. Torn between her fascination with him and her desire not to ruin a marvelous friendship, she tries to enjoy each moment as it comes.
If only that were enough.
The eagerly demanded sequel to Wealth and Privilege is a carefully researched historical novel about life and love among the upper class of Pittsburgh.
