****4/5 stars- loved itmagnate by Joanna Shupe

Tycoon is the first in the Knickerbocker Club Series set in the unique Gilded Age. And you’ll love it.

Recommended readers:

  • If you’re looking for not-your-typical setting: Gilded Age
  • if you like Candace Camp, Jane Feather and others
  • and if you like a super-quick and steamy read

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall


The first in a new series by Joanna Shupe, Magante is fabulous, quick reading historical romance. You’ll jump right into the Gilded-Age action as Elizabeth Sloane tries to make her way in a man’s world. Lizzie has secretly traded stocks with amazing results and wants to go out on her own, but being of the upper class the results could be damaging to her reputation. The advancing times of the late 1800s make the setting unique for a historical romance – and very refreshing. I loved the historical lifestyle details and challenges of travel during that time, not to mention the steamy romance. With Magnate and Tycoon (the prequel novella), I’m hooked for the full series.
