Summary
1876. In the glittering world of Manhattan's upper crust, wives turn a blind eye to husbands' infidelities, and women have few rights and even less independence. The more celebrated the hostess, the more powerful the woman. And none is more powerful than Caroline Astor-- The Mrs. Astor. Alva Vanderbilt has recently married into one of America's richest families, but what good is money when society refuses to acknowledge you? Alva will do whatever it takes to have everything. Over three decades these women try to outdo and outsmart each other at every turn. And both will make surprising discoveries about themselves-- and what is truly at stake. -- adapted from back cover

Summary
"Meet the Society of Sirens--three radical, libertine ladies determined to weaponize their scandalous reputations to fight for justice and the love they deserve ... She's a Rakess on a quest for women's rights ... Seraphina Arden's passions include equality, amorous affairs, and wild, wine-soaked nights. To raise funds for her cause, she's set to publish explosive memoirs exposing the powerful man who ruined her. Her ideals are her purpose, her friends are her family, and her paramours are forbidden to linger in the morning. He's not looking for a summer lover ... Adam Anderson is a wholesome, handsome, widowed Scottish architect, with two young children, a business to protect, and an aversion to scandal. He could never, ever afford to fall for Seraphina. But her indecent proposal--one month, no strings, no future--proves too tempting for a man who strains to keep his passions buried with the losses of his past. But one night changes everything ... What began as a fling soon forces them to confront painful secrets--and yearnings they thought they'd never have again. But when Seraphina discovers Adam's future depends on the man she's about to destroy, she must decide what to protect ... her desire for justice, or her heart."--Provided by publisher.
