Will gaining the world cost him everything he holds most dear?
When stable hand Nolan Price learns from his dying mother that he is actually the son of the Earl of Stainsby, his plans for a future with kitchen maid Hannah Burnham are shattered. Once he is officially acknowledged as the earl’s heir, Nolan will be forbidden to marry beneath his station.
Unwilling to give up the girl he loves, he devises a plan to elope–believing that once their marriage is sanctioned by God, Lord Stainsby will be forced to accept their union. However, as Nolan struggles to learn the ways of the aristocracy, he finds himself caught between his dreams for tomorrow and his father’s demanding expectations.
Forces work to keep the couple apart at every turn, and a solution to remain together seems further and further away. With Nolan’s new life pulling him irrevocably away from Hannah, it seems only a miracle will bring them back together.
This book had been on my to be read list since it came out, and I finally got to get it from the library. The blurb only gave an idea of the first third of the book which is highly disappointing to me since I dislike blurbs that don’t give more information on books without giving anything away. The characters were at points, I guess, forced … I was going to say weak but they truly aren’t weak just forced. I like the story well enough but it just lacked something perhaps development. A Most Noble Heir is an intriguing premise but lacked real passion on the author’s part though I could see/feel her passion for the story. Sadly, I believe there was a lot that could have been improved. It had potential.
