Back of the book:
Coming of age in the turbulent Roaring Twenties, two daughters of fortune can have anything they possibly want—except freedom. Expected to marry well and take the reins of the family empire, Lilly and Rosie have their entire lives planned out for them. But Lilly longs to flee the confines of New York City for the untamed wilds of Montana. Her cousin Rosie dreams of the bright lights of the newly emerging silver screen. Following their dreams—to avant-garde France, to dazzling Broadway, to the skies of the fearless wing walkers—will demand all their courage.
When forced to decide, will Lilly and Rosie truly be able to abandon lives of ease and luxury for the love and adventure that beckons? At what cost will each daughter of fortune find her true love and a happy ending?

If you like stories about strong women you are going to love not only this book, but this series. Baroness is book two in the Daughters of Fortune series that will be followed up by a third next year. This book can be read as a stand-alone, but I would recommend that you treat yourself and read them in order. The author has done a great job of balancing giving enough background information for those that haven’t yet read Heiress, to not giving too much information that would just bore readers of the series.
Heiress is the story of sisters, Esme Price Hoyt Stewart and Jinx Price Worth. Baroness is the story of their 19 year old daughters, Lilly Hoyt and Rosie Worth. The story begins with the two cousins and their exploits in 1920s Paris. At first it appears that Rosie is wild and Lilly is reserved. Yet Lilly is the one that actually ventures out of her comfort zone.
The trip to Paris is cut short when tragedy again strikes the family. Once back in the states Lilly continues to long for her beloved ranch in Montana. Rosie desires to become a famous star of the silver screen. The men that they meet along the way bring great heartache and overwhelming happiness.
I enjoyed being transported into the Roaring Twenties. Ms. Warren did a wonderful job on describing the culture of the day. In the acknowledgments in the front of the book, Susan says that her daughter Sarah asked her to not write just another book about flappers. This book fulfills that wish and more.
