Feed your downtown Abbey addiction with New York Times Bestselling Sharon Page’s an American duchess
Sharon Page delivers a compelling story centered on a young heiress who must fight convention to win the love she deserves.
With its poignant romance, high drama, sweeping scope and exquisite period detail reminiscent of Downton Abbey, AN AMERICAN DUCHESS by New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Sharon Page will transport readers to a time when anything seemed possible—if only one was fearless enough.
Headstrong and brazen, but bound by her deceased father’s will to marry before she can access his fortune, New York heiress Zoe Gifford arranges for a brief marriage to Sebastian Hazelton, whose aristocratic British family sorely needs a benefactor. But when circumstances compel Zoe to marry Nigel Hazelton, Sebastian’s austere older brother, she does so for love, he for honor. With Nigel unwilling to change with the times, Zoe may be forced to choose between her husband and her dreams.
Celebrated for her “sensuous and captivating” historical romances (Publishers Weekly), Sharon Page ups the ante in AN AMERICAN DUCHESS with a breathtaking account of the Roaring Twenties that spans two continents and sees two families and two hearts clashing in the post-war world. Sharon’s riveting plot will appeal to fans of Daisy Goodwin, Natasha Solomons and Lucinda Riley, and this searing tale will only whet readers’ appetite for more.
Downton Abbey fans will love this nod to the era and be impressed with Page’s thorough research and authenticity in the details. AN AMERICAN DUCHESS is the enchanting story of love hard fought and hard won in a changing world full of possibility and spirit.

I really liked this story. I don’t read a lot of historical romance stories but I’m glad i read this one. this story starts off with an American, Zoe arriving at the home of the her new fiance who she is going to marry in order to receive her money and help her mother or if debt. plus Sabastian who she is going to marry will get some money to help his family and his brother the Duke. then after a little time they would divorce and she can move on with her life. zoe didn’t expect to meet and have some feelings with the Duke. she found out that she didn’t want what sabastian was offering since he had led to her and broke off the engagement. then the Duke came to her and asked her to marry him with the same offer she was giving his brother. she agreed and they got married. within the first year they had a lot happen and eventually the Duke pushed zoe away and she ran back to new York and her mother. it was hard on both of them but eventually the Duke came to his senses.
