I'm also looking forward to reading Kate Brian's new series, Privilege. You can read the first chapter here.

Description from MOST GIRLS WOULD DIE FOR A LIFE OF PRIVILEGE....SOME WOULD EVEN KILL FOR IT.Ariana Osgood ruled exclusive Easton Academy -- until she was arrested for murdering Thomas Pearson.

The first chapter of Anna Godbersen's Envy (January 27, 2009) is also available here.

Description from Two months after Elizabeth Holland's dramatic homecoming, Manhattan eagerly awaits her return to the pinnacle of society. When Elizabeth refuses to rejoin her sister Diana's side, however, those watching New York's favorite family begin to suspect that all is not as it seems behind the stately doors of No. 17 Gramercy Park South.

Farther uptown, Henry and Penelope Schoonmaker are the city's most celebrated couple. But despite the glittering diamond ring on Penelope's finger, the newlyweds share little more than scorn for each other. And while the newspapers call Penelope's social-climbing best friend, Carolina Broad, an heiress, her fortune—and her fame—are anything but secure, especially now that one of society's darlings is slipping tales to the eager press.

In this next thrilling installment of Anna Godbersen's bestselling Luxe series, Manhattan's most envied residents appear to have everything they desire: Wealth. Beauty. Happiness. But sometimes the most practiced smiles hide the most scandalous secrets...
