Published in 2012, The Autumn Bride is the first of the Chance Sisters books. The novel introduces Governess Abigail Chantry, the lead character who’s working to save her sister and two friends, Daisy and Damaris, from abject poverty. This great initiative will see her break into what she thinks is an empty mansion to find treasure only to stumble upon its bedridden and abandoned owner Lady Beatrice Davenham. Abby immediately takes charge and rescues the weak woman from her predatory servants. From that point, the four heroines, who had sworn to stay sisters although not by blood, are taken in by the senior woman. All is well until Max, the arrogant and dashing nephew of Lady Beatrice returns earlier than anticipated from his travels and finds the four women who he now considers imposters whose motives remain a mystery. His immediate plans are to send them away, and he does not see a romantic involvement with Abby coming up in the process. The fun, the sweet book paints the picture of passionate and stubborn opponents who might just end up on one side.

The Winter Bride (Chance Sisters #2)

The Winter Bride introduces Damaris Chance, the protagonist who exudes fairness, quiet strength as well as honesty, qualities that would endear anyone to her. Despite all these admirable qualities, her pain from the past has made her not entertain the idea of marriage. However, Lady Beatrice Davenham, her guardian will have none of it and convinces her to join the social scene by coming out despite her misgivings about marriage. She urges Damaris just to have simple, carefree fun. Things are going according to plan until the day Damaris finds herself in a very compromising position with Freddy Monkton-Coombes, the handsome rake. Faced with the situation at hand, Damaris agrees to marry him out of convenience. Little does she know that Freddy has his plans and wants to seduce her? Like Damaris, Freddy has had his share of heartbreaks, but in spite of them, he has a happy go lucky and effervescent personality. He was also facing pressure from his mother to get married, and this made them butt heads many times. The treatment of His parents towards Freddy also brings out the strong side of Damaris as she is not afraid to tell them off. Their unfavorable histories also create some connection between the two. The remaining question is will Freddy feel the same about Damaris once he learns her secrets that have stolen the joy from her? Will he help her overcome them?

Anne Gracie has outdone herself with the hilarity in the book while also expertly bringing out their pain and heartbreak.
