One of Publishers Weekly's Top 10 Romances of the Fall!

New York Times bestseller, Suzanne Enoch takes a delightful new path in her joyful historical romantic comedy, 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.

Emmeline and William Pershing have enjoyed a perfectly convenient marriage for eight years. They've settled into separate, well-ordered lives beneath the same roof, and are content to stay that way--or so Emmeline thinks. If William secretly longs 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; while Emme has been able to keep her beloved childhood home.

Then when Emmeline's grandfather, the reclusive Duke of Welshire, summons them both for his birthday celebration and demands they bring their angelic little 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, predictable relationship takes some surprisingly intimate turns as well. Perhaps it takes a touch of madness to create the perfect happily ever after.

A native and current resident of Southern California, SUZANNE ENOCH loves movies almost as much as she loves books, with a special place in her heart for anything Star Wars. She has written more than forty Regency novels and historical romances--including the Scandalous Brides and Scandalous HIghlanders series--which are regularly found on the New York Times bestseller list. When she is not busily working on her next book, Suzanne likes to contemplate interesting phenomena, like how the three guppies in her aquarium became 161 guppies in five months.
