One of Publishers Weekly’s Top 10 Romances of the Fall

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.

Something in the Heir by S. Enoch, published by St. Martin's Press, is a pure delight.
Emmeline and her husband William have settled in their marriage of convenience for eight years. Everything is peachy, both are happy with their arrangement whne a family member wants to mmet the whole family. The non-existing children included. So what to do??? Easy peasy lemon squeezy, just borrow some orphans and everything should go swimmingly perfect. Yes? Of course - not.
This is a witty and fun read, excellent written, unputdownable. A read in one sitting cover to over read.

This book is full of absolutely delightful and lovable characters!! The storyline is something you would expect from a different era in time which makes it funnier. At one moment You will laugh at so many of the things that Rose and George do and say but in the next moment your heart will be breaking g for what they have experienced. The adult characters are good also but the kids really steal the show throughout the book.

I absolutely loved the entire thing and read till it was almost daylight so I could finish it. But then I was sad I was done. You don’t want to miss these exceptional cast of characters. A must read.

Thanks to St Martin’s Group via NetGalley for the invitation to read this ARC. I needed a good laugh in my life right now.
