Catherine VanDorn Is No Thief
An American heiress and widow of a rakish English earl, Catherine has returned to New York high society determined to make amends for the scandal she caused when she crossed the Atlantic to elope with her best friend’s suitor and win the title of Lady Bisterne. But a ruined reputation isn’t the only thing that’s followed her home: Lord Tristram Wolfe, the rightful heir to the Bisterne estate, has vowed to track down his family’s stolen jewels—gems he’s certain Catherine stole.
Catherine has more to think about than charming, handsome Tristram and his accusations, even if he’s beginning to change her mind about never returning to England. Back at her family’s Tuxedo Park estate, she resolves to restore her honor by earning the forgiveness of her best friend and protecting her younger sister from other fortune-seeking Englishmen with dubious titles, all while abiding by the etiquette of the Gilded Age.
Yet when Tristram’s quest takes a dangerous turn, she must decide whether to follow the rules or save her accuser’s life.
Revised edition: This edition of The Honorable Heir includes editorial revisions.
This is the first time I had read anything by this author. I found this short novel to be very well written and full of intrigue rather than sexual content. If a bit of mystery and a sweet story is to your taste I think this book is for you.
Although the passion consists of only a few heated kisses this story flowed very well and kept my interest.
I would give this book 4.25 stars and will look for more by this author.
My heat rating is 1.
I received a complimentary Digital ARC to read of this book which in no way affected my opinion.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Award-winning author Laurie Alice Eakes wanted to be a writer since knowing what one was. Her first book won the National Readers Choice Award in 2007, and her third book was a Carol Award finalist in 2010. Between December of 2008 and January of 2010, she sold thirteen books to Barbour Publishing, Avalon Books, and Baker/Revell, making her total sales fifteen. Recently, she added two novella sales to that collection, as well as having her first book with Baker/Revell, Lady in the Mist, picked up by Crossings Book Club, and six of her books chosen for large print editions by Thorndike Press. She has been a public speaker for as long as she can remember; thus, only suffers enough stage fright to keep her sharp. In 2002, while in graduate school for writing fiction, she began to teach fiction in person and online. She lives in Texas with her husband, two dogs, and probably too many cats.

Miranda Fenster was known as the Fairy Tale Miss during the one disastrous London season that convinced her she would never have a happily-ever-after. But when her brother’s elopement is thwarted by the stubbornly proper Duke of Kerstone, Miranda sets off to convince the duke to champion her brother’s cause for love. Unfortunately, he is too proper to consider love, or any matters of the heart, a suitable reason for marriage, and too proper not to marry Miranda when they find themselves compromised. Now, Miranda is an unexpected duchess caught up in a marriage-of-convenience with a man she has loved from afar. The new duchess is sure of only one thing: she has a second chance for happily-ever-after, if she can uncover her new husband’s darkest secret, and make him believe that fairytale endings can be real.

PRAISE FOR THE NEXT BEST BRIDE
“This was, by far, the best book in the series so far. I loved it, and the ending was so sweetly perfect!” — Tammy, Goodreads.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Kelly McClymer fell in love with Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White as a child. Her most prized possession is her copy of The Complete Tales of the Brothers Grimm. These are the stories which gripped our ancestors as they huddled around the fire at night, which taught countless children to persevere through hardship and succeed against the odds. Her favorite fairytale remains “The Six Swans” — where a young sister must not speak a word for six years in order to save her brothers from their stepmother’s evil spell.
