That Inevitable Victorian Thing, Paperback / softback Book

That Inevitable Victorian Thing Paperback / softback


Victoria-Margaret is the crown princess of the empire, a direct descendent of Victoria I, the queen who changed the course of history.

The imperial tradition of genetically arranged matchmaking will soon guide Margaret into a politically advantageous marriage.

But before she does her duty, she'll have one summer of freedom and privacy in a far corner of empire.

Posing as a commoner in Toronto, she meets Helena Marcus, daughter of one of the empire's greatest placement geneticists, and August Callaghan, the heir to a powerful shipping firm currently besieged by American pirates.

In a summer of high-society debutante balls, politically charged tea parties, and romantic country dances, Margaret, Helena, and August discover they share an extraordinary bond and maybe a one-in-a-million chance to have what they want and to change the world in the process. Set in a near-future world where the British Empire never fell and the United States never rose, That Inevitable Victorian Thing is a surprising, romantic, and thought-provoking story of love, duty, and the small moments that can change people and the world.
