The Toffee Heiress (Rare Confectionery #2) by Sydney Jane Baily. Historical Romance. My Review.

Add To

Step into Rare Confectionery on New Bond Street, where three talented sisters create treats as delectable to the tongue as they are appealing to the eye. One taste is all it takes to be captivated…

Greer Carson needs a wife, and not merely any wife, either. She must be a titled British lady so he can claim his inheritance—a country estate all but abandoned for a generation.

Beatrice can make treacle toffee without a doubt, the best in London! Yet sometimes she dreams of doing more with her life. When a handsome American comes into Rare Confectionery seeking assistance, she grabs hold of the opportunity for adventure with both hands.

Join Beatrice and Greer as they infiltrate the highest ranks of London’s aristocracy searching for spouses. As they each get closer to their goal, oddly enough, only the impossible choice becomes the most appealing one.

Engaging characters, attention to period detail, and heartfelt romance — you’ll find it all in the stories by USA Today bestselling author of historical romance, Sydney Jane Baily.


Miss Beatrice Rare-Foure makes beautiful treacle toffee in her family's confectionary.  They tend to keep her in the kitchen because she's not very good with some of the snooty customers.  This time though she's on her own because one sister is on honeymoon and the other has the sniffles.  Trying to keep her toffee from burning and serve someone who has no idea what they want is not best for her temper.
Greer Carson is a newly arrived American.  He needs to marry a titled Lady to qualify for his inheritance. Although he has more than enough money, the house and land in Scotland calls to his heart.  He has a lot to learn before any "Lady" will even look at him.  
This is a sweet historical romance filled with fun loving characters.  Our misfits have a connection that will let them have entry to events of The season, but will they be able to do what they want.  
This is the second book in the series,  and while it is better to read them in order you can read each on it's own.  
Great fun.


Sydney Jane Baily completed her first novel at the tender age of 17. Thankfully, that manuscript currently resides in an undisclosed secure location. She went on to get B.A. degrees in English literature and in history, and an M.A. in literature with a concentration in Romanticism. During her career while continuing to write stories, she has been a copy editor, cat snuggler, proof reader, production editor, mother of two, website developer, indexer, and dog walker, among other things literary and not. 

While writing historical romance, she firmly believes in crafting happily-ever-after stories for an already challenging world. Born and raised in California, she currently resides in New England with her family—human, feline, and canine.
