No teenager or older sister or adult will be able to resist. If you’ve never enjoyed historical fiction before then try this. It will not disappoint.

Society’s elite: the glamour, the grandeur, the glittering parties, the most handsome beaux, the most beautiful debutantes… the rich girl, the humble boy, the forbidden love, the stolen glances, the whispers, the scandal, the mystery, the revenge. You are cordially invited to step into Luxe.
“A big, sumptuous tale of catty girls and dark secrets and windswept romance unfurls in this readable novel of late 19th century New York City socialites… Readers with clamour for this sharp, smart drama of friends, lovers, lies, and betrayals.” Kirkus Reviews
'Bursting with glam parties, beautiful debutantes and a good dose of scandal.' Sugar
