[Here are my reviews of the other books in the series.]

Content Note: (critical treatment of) racism, ableism

Plot:
Jane Fairfield has one mission in her life and that is to remain unmarried for about another 500 days, for the sake of her sister. Since her considerable inheritance may entice men to propose to her though, Jane has to make herself as unattractive as she possibly can. And she is damn good at it, wearing the most outrageous dresses, saying the wrong thing always and generally making a nuisance of herself. Oliver Marshall, on the other hand, has spent his entire life making himself fit in with the rich and powerful, despite being the bastard son of a duke, hoping for a career in politics himself. When his paths cross with Jane, he may have to choose between his ambition, and both of their honor. And Jane really doesn’t make the decision easy for him.

I loved The Heiress Effect in general, and Jane and Oliver in particular. It’s a glorious book the biggest faul of which is its cover that hides the fact that Jane is fat.
