Fresh Fiction Review

Something in the Heir

Romance Historical | Romance Comedy

If you’re looking for something unique and humorous, then look no further! Suzanne Enoch has got your covered!

Enoch is no stranger to humor in his Historical Romance, but I have to say, I have never encountered a story like this one. It follows a couple of eight years who actually live apart. But when Emmeline’s grandfather invites them for his birthday and asks that he bring their children, they have no choice but to attend.

The problem is, that they don’t actually have children. So here comes the issue of how they are going to fool everyone. The romance is different because there are no explicit sex scenes like you expect. The humor is also different than Enoch’s typical style. In this book, it’s more of a slapstick comedy. I know this isn’t for everyone, but I do admire someone willing to try something very different.

There is a lot of repetition, which can slow the pacing down a bit and I wasn’t a huge fan of the conflicts of this story, so that also affected how much I enjoyed this book. Sometimes, I felt like the situations could’ve been solved easily if they had just stopped to explain things, but then again, that might be boring for some to read.

In the end, I admire the utter uniqueness of this story. SOMETHING IN THE HEIR is definitely one-of-a-kind!

SUMMARY

In Something in the Heir, smart, capable heiress Emmeline Pershing will do anything to keep her beloved home; and all it takes is an arranged marriage and a teeny white lie to fulfill her family’s silly inheritance rules! But now her little fib means that she and her completely unsuspecting husband are going to inherit big — and very messy! —trouble in this spicy, sexy delight from bestseller, Suzanne Enoch.

Emmeline and William Pershing have enjoyed a perfectly convenient marriage for eight years. Their relationship is a seamless blend of their talents and goals. They’ve settled into separate, well-ordered lives beneath the same roof, and are content to stay that way—or so Emmeline thinks. And if William has secretly longed for a bit more from the woman he adores, he’s managed to be content with her supreme skills as a hostess and planner, which has helped him advance his career.

Then when Emmeline’s grandfather, the reclusive Duke of Welshire, summons them both for his birthday celebration and demands they bring their two little angelic children, William is stunned to discover that his very proper wife invented not one, but two heirs to fulfill the agreement for living at Winnover. But surely if Emmeline and William team up and borrow two cherubs to call their own, what could go wrong? Enter George, age 8, and Rose, 5—the two most unruly orphans in Britain.

As the insanity unfolds, their careful, professional arrangement takes some surprisingly intimate turns as well. Perhaps it takes a bit of madness to create the perfect happily ever after.
