The Heiress’s Homecoming by Regina Scott

Terms of the Will:  To keep her cherished childhood home, Samantha Everard must marry by her twenty-fifth birthday. Yet she refuses to marry on a whim, not even to save her fortune. When she returns to Dallsten Manor to say goodbye, the last person she expects to see is her handsome, disapproving neighbor William Wentworth, Earl of Kendrick.

Will is certain the scandalous Everard family is nothing but trouble. He shouldn't care about Samantha's predicament, but her feistiness and kindheartedness intrigue him—as does her refusal to wed. He wants to help, especially when he perceives the threat that surrounds her. Soon his greatest wish is to persuade Samantha that her true home is with him.


Lady Samantha Everard returns to Dallsten Manor after being away in London just shy of nine years.  Samantha is feeling pressure from everyone close to her in regards to her will and saving the family home. Samantha does not want to marry just anyone on a whim. She knows that if she does not marry by her 25th birthday, she risks loosing her home and inheritance. She has had several offers of marriage, but because of an incident in her past, she decides early on that she will never marry. 

What she does not count on however is the curiosity and attraction she begins to feel towards William Wentworth, The Earl of Kendrick who just happens to be her younger childhood friend’s father. There is a bit of mystery to the story as Samantha reveals that her home in London was broken into and someone went through all of her belongings. She worries that whoever did that might have followed her to Dallsten Manor.

Final Thoughts:

The Heiress’s Homecoming was an entertaining read. The Romance was clean and sweet. I actually liked it more than I had anticipated which is always a good thing. I admired Samantha’s strength and determination to do what she felt was right regardless of what her family wanted her to do. This is the fourth book in the Everard Legacy Series and can be read as a stand-alone novel if you choose. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy Inspirational/Christian Historical Fiction.

Rating: 3½ out of 5.

**I received this book from Harlequin Books in exchange for nothing but my honest opinion. Thank you.**
