Genre: Historical Fiction
Feisty, independent heiress Winifred de la Coeur has never wanted to live according to someone else’s rules—but even she didn’t plan on falling in love with a bank robber.
Winifred is a wealthy, nontraditional beauty who bridles against the strict rules and conventions of Victorian London society. When she gets caught up in the chaos of a bungled bank robbery, she is thrust unwillingly into an encounter with Court Furor, a reluctant getaway driver and prizefighter. In the bitter cold of a bleak London winter, sparks fly.
Winifred and Court are two misfits in their own circumscribed worlds—the fashionable beau monde with its rigorously upheld rules, and the gritty demimonde, where survival often means life-or-death choices.
Despite their conflicting backgrounds, they fall desperately in love while acknowledging the impossibility of remaining together. Returning to their own worlds, they try to make peace with their lives until a moment of unrestrained honesty and defiance threatens to topple the deceptions they have carefully constructed to protect each other.
A story of the overlapping entanglements of Victorian London’s social classes, the strength of family bonds and true friendship, and the power of love to heal a broken spirit.
“Magnificent! Where Your Treasure Is leads readers through a labyrinth of heart-straining love and mind-splintering tension. Bunn’s attention to historical detail nails the time period, and the characters are as fully fleshed and vivid as reality. Treasure stayed with me long after I reluctantly finished reading it, a rare delicacy to linger over as long as possible. Bravo, M. C. Bunn!” – Parris Afton Bonds, NY Times Bestselling Author of The Texicans series
“M. C. Bunn’s storytelling makes for a thoroughly immersive read, transporting readers to 19th-century England, Italy, and beyond.” – Erin Knightley, USA Today Bestselling Author of the Prelude to a Kiss series
”In Where Your Treasure Is, characters are driven by passion. They fight to attain their heart’s desire or struggle to resist it. Beautifully drawn characters. I loved it!” – Dr. Vana Nespor, Bellastoria Press
