Never Fall for Your Fiancée

The trouble with lies is they have a tendency to catch a man out.

 The last thing Hugh Standish, Earl of Fareham, wants is a wife.

But since the only way to keep his mother’s matchmaking ways at bay is the promise of

impending nuptials, Hugh takes the most logical action: he invents a fake fiancée.

It’s the perfect plan – until Hugh learns that his mother is on a ship bound for England to meet his ‘beloved’. He needs a solution fast, and when he collides with a mysterious beauty, he might just have found the answer to his prayers.

Minerva Merriwell is desperate for money to support her sisters, and although she knows that posing as the Earl’s fiancée might seem nonsensical, it’s just too good an offer to refuse.

As the Merriwells descend upon Hugh’s estate, the household is thrown into turmoil as everyone tries to keep their tangled stories straight. And with Hugh and Minerva’s romantic ruse turning into the real thing, is true love just one complication too many?

‘Filled with fabulously British banter, wit, and heart,

this delightful book is one of my must-read rom-coms of the year’

My Review:

Never Fall For Your Fiance is the first book in Virginia Heath’s new series, The Merriwell Sisters. I am such a huge fan of historical romance novels and pair it up with a “fake romance/fiance” trope and I most definitely will need to read it. Heath kept me up all night just so I could finish this wonderfully hilarious story.

Hugh Standish, Earl of Fareham has pretty much sworn off all relationships at least of the marrying sort. He is content to sow his oats with a dalliance here and there, but his mother has other ideas. She wants Hugh married and pronto. So, what does a desperate earl do to keep his mother at bay? He creates a fake fiance, named Minerva! But, when Hugh’s mother decides to sail across the ocean to welcome his fiance into the family, Hugh has to think fast before his lies become apparent. Lucky for him, he saves a damsel in distress who happens to be named Minerva! Add in an actress and Minerva’s sisters and you have one laughter filled story in your hands.

I have to say, I really enjoyed this book and found myself laughing at quite a number of scenes. Hugh really got himself really in deep with his ruse and between him and his friend Giles, they painted a very odd and laughable story including a few err….poems all centering around Hugh and Minerva’s love match. I had to shake my head after laughing over the things these two did and said. Minerva, on the other hand, is like a breath of fresh air. ZShe is a struggling artist taking care of her two younger sisters. They are not technically orphans, but they may as well be. So, when Minerva meets Hugh, his offer of playing his fake finance could not have come at a better time. I loved the sparks between these two and the witty banter back and forth. It was easy to see that Hugh was going to fall and fall hard for Minerva.

If you love a fun story, full of laughter and romance, then you definitely do not want to miss Virginia heath’s Never Fall For Your Fiance.
