These cousins set out to claim their inheritance—and find love is their greatest reward
I have been excited about reading the saga of The Everard Legacy as they were published and the fact that I just had not gotten around to it yet is all bad on me because this is a fabulous read. The Heiress’s Homecoming is a great romance and adventure. Regina was definitely able to take a story that I knew how I wanted it to end, but was not sure how it could possibly get to that point. She did it and entertained me along the entire way. While this is the fourth book in the series it can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone and as a matter of fact reading it first will really provide a desire to go back and read all of the rest of the series to understand the full background of each of the couple characters.
This cover is absolutely gorgeous and has to be my favorite for the whole series and of all Regina’s Love Inspired Historical titles so far. It’s gorgeous and makes it difficult not to just snatch the book up and read it right then. This heiress is a beauty, but she is spunky and her own independent woman and watching her struggle to do what’s best for everyone else as well as for love is an interesting emotional adventure that goes right along with the suspense of what make come in the end as well. Definitely a worthy read.
While this Love Inspired Historical is a mass market paperback and if you know me you know that size is not my preference, however gladly in this day and age they are available as eBooks as well. So if you’re like me and in the past have steered away from Love Inspired Historicals because of the size, you can now also read them on your Kindle, Nook or otherwise! Yay!
*Thanks to Regina for providing a copy for review.*
Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998).
Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens), which are now featured in electronic book form as Be My Bride. Her novels have been translated into Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese, and Lord Borin’s Secret Love has been issued in a hardcover, large print edition. Many of her works are also available as electronic books through Belgrave House’s Regency Reads line.
Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in southeast Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born in 1959 and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents were excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician, now retired. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.
Regina Scott is a devout Christian and a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has been known to impersonate an independent consultant specializing in risk communication.
