Enchanting the Heiress (Hearts on the Heath)

We rated this book:


A meddlesome heiress who likes nothing more than making others’ business her own. A stablehand who relies on the words of the Bible for comfort even as he shuts out other human connections. How could sparks (of both sorts) not fly between the two? When Miss Harriet Hancock hires Jonas Fitzroy to help her write a book, it’s a recipe for either disaster or romance.

The plot may sound a little contrived, but Enchanting the Heiress has had two books leading up to this meeting, and the results are so charming that I only scoffed a little bit, and even then, it was fondly. Harriet and Jonas are delightful at getting past one another’s shells and getting under one another’s skin, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them alternately needle one another and draw closer despite their own better judgment.

The one thing keeping this from being a five-star review was that the pacing of their secrets and their inner selves didn’t quite match the rest of the plot. While I enjoyed the book (and will definitely look up the other two in the series), I found it slow at points.
