The privileged members of the Knickerbocker Club can never climb too high up the social ladder. But for one charming New York bachelor, does the ascent take precedence over love in the Gilded Age?As owner of a well-respected national newspaper, Calvin Cabot has the means to indulge his capricious taste for excess—and the power to bring the upper crust of society to its knees. So when a desperate heiress from his past begs for his help, Calvin agrees . . . as long as she promises to stay out of his way. Except, like the newsman, this willful beauty always gets what she wants . . .
Lillian Davies lives a life brimming with boundless parties, impressive yachts, and exotic getaways. But when her brother disappears, Lily knows that blood runs thicker than champagne and she'll spare nothing to bring him back alive. Unfortunately, the only man who can help her is the one she never wanted to see again. Can Lily keep Calvin at arm's length long enough to save her brother and protect her name . . . even when the tenacious powerbroker turns out to be absolutely irresistible?
I have heard amazing things about the Knickerbocker Club series , so when I got the chance to read Mogul early I was thrilled and I dived into this story as soon as I could . I love it ! Mogul was such an amazing read.
In this book we follow Calvin and Lillian these two have a past and I just love it when characters have a past because with that you get all the back story that goes along with that .Calvin and Lillian once ran away together to get married however when we meet them in the beginning of this book they are separated and the only reason Lillian is seeking him out is because the situation she is currently dealing with is dire and she really has no other place to turn. Watching Calvin and Lillian romance reignite over the course of this book was just wonderful, every moment we spend with them weather they are fighting , having a sweet moment or a sexy one was just wonderful and I am so happy with how everything turned out of these two . The romance that Joanne Shupe writes in this was so very swoon worthy and filled me with all the happy ever after feels . We spend a lot of this book trying to find out where Lily's brother disappeared to and let me tell you this story took some twist and turns that I did not see coming and I loved that.The setting was just so wonderful I have not read many Historical Romances set in the america so setting of this story also added something new to the table.With a fiery romance , a unique cast of character and the setting of New York City during the Gilded age Joanne Shupe creates an excellent story with Mogul
I cannot wait to see what Joanna Shupe will write next. I know it is going to be fantastic just from reading this book if you love all these things in your stories then you should defiantly pick up a copy of mogul when in comes out January 31 , 2016
