Something in the Heir

A novel by

In Something in the Heir, clever, competent heiress Emmeline Pershing will do anything to keep her beloved home; all it takes is an arranged marriage and a teeny white lie to fulfill her family’s silly inheritance rules! What could go wrong? She and her completely unsuspecting husband are about to find out, when they inherit big—and very messy!—trouble in this charming romantic comedy by New York Times bestseller, Suzanne Enoch.

Emmeline and William Pershing have enjoyed a perfectly convenient marriage for eight years. Their relationship is a seamless pairing of their talents and goals and they’re quite happy in their well-ordered, separate lives—or so Emmie thinks. If Will 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.

But when Emmie’s grandfather, the reclusive Duke of Welshire, summons his entire family 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 Hall. Emmie and Will are convinced they can solve any problem together…even producing an instant family! Surely they can borrow two orphaned cherubs to call their own for the occasion! Enter George, age 8, and Rose, 5—the two most unruly orphans in Britain.

As insanity unfolds, their careful, professional marriage of convenience takes some surprising turns as well. Perhaps it takes a bit of madness to create a perfect happily ever after.

"Grab a cup of hot tea and a delicious scone because Suzanne Enoch has written a sparkling, fresh new book. SOMETHING IN THE HEIR will delight fans of both Julia Quinn and Jane Austen with its witty banter, rich family dynamics and scintillating humor. This book is going straight to my keeper shelf!"—Karen Hawkins, New York Times bestselling author of The Book Charmer
