"Love at Any Cost" is book 1 in Julie Lessman's exciting new The Heart of San Francisco series. This is a historical romance series that is set in the early 1900's and the reader will be transported back into time to this exciting time period. Cassidy is an oil heiress, but does not have a fortune, and is therefore jilted by a fortune hunter. Cassidy leaves Texas for a summer visit with her relatives in San Francisco and she is hoping to forget all about her broken heart. Cassidy is hoping to spend time with her family and never expects to fall for someone; however along comes Jamie. Jamie is trying to move up in society and he believes that marrying well will not only secure his place, but also provide much needed help for his mother and sister. Is Cassidy ready to give her heart to Jamie and if she does will Jamie only end up breaking it when he finds out that Cassidy does not have the means he believes her to have?
This is such a fun and fast-moving read that I was immediately drawn into the story as it has a fun storyline and also excellent characters! Cassidy is a great main character who is spunky, fun-loving and entertaining, yet also real so that she is easy to empathize with. Jamie is a character who you cannot help but love as well! Caitlin and Logan have their own story alongside Cassidy and Jamie as well and their relationship is one that is filled with love, tension and emotions. This is an excellent start to a series that any historical romance fan will not want to miss out on!
