A Highstakes Tale


If you love historical novels, especially those set in the gilded age of America, you will not want to miss this new book by  Elizabeth Camden, Hearts of Steel. This is book three in her series The Blackstone Legacy. 

 Camden wraps up this dramatic series in a highstakes tale with themes of corruption and injustice alongside humor, romance, and a heartfelt sense of community.

Maggie Molinaro survived a hardscrabble childhood in the downtrodden streets of Manhattan to become a successful businesswoman. After a decade of sacrifice, she now owns a celebrated ice cream company, but when she offends a corrupt banker, she unwittingly sets off a series of calamities that threaten to destroy her life's work.

Liam Blackstone is a charismatic steel magnate committed to overhauling factory conditions for the steelworkers of America. Standing in his way is the same villain determined to ruin Maggie. What begins as a practical alliance to defeat a common enemy soon evolves into a romance between two wounded people determined to beat the odds. A spiraling circle of treachery grows increasingly dangerous as Liam and Maggie risk their lives and fortune for the good of the city. It will require all their wit and ingenuity to navigate the dangerous waters ahead, but their crusade could cost them everything.

Return to New York City for another dramatic and romantic story from the enchanted pen of bestselling author Elizabeth Camden.

"A sweeping saga of a historical romance, enhanced by complex characters and riveting period detail."-- Mimi Matthews, bestselling author on Written on the Wind.

Elizabeth Camden is best known for her historical novels set in gilded age America featuring clever heroines and richly layered storylines. Before she was a writer, she was an academic librarian at some of the largest and smallest libraries in America, but her favorite is the continually growing library in her own home. Her novels have won the RITA and Christy Award, and she lives in Florida with her husband who graciously tolerates her intimidating stockpile of books.
