What a fun novel! Everything about Nolan Price’s life changes when he learns that he is not the stable hand he had always thought but the son of his employer – especially his plans to marry sweet Hannah Burnham, a kitchen maid on the estate. Now Nolan is suddenly forbidden to have anything to do with her because she is deemed to be beneath his station. And that is where the fun begins.

The author has created a romantic tale filled with surprises and unexpected twists as well as several wonderful characters in addition to the hero and heroine. One character especially seemed to step onto center stage several times and I was delighted by her bold and often humorous approach to life. I was never quite certain how everything would turn out for Nolan and Hannah. Even when it looked like things might go their way, they tended to get in the way themselves.

“A Most Noble Heir” is a wonderful tale filled with faith, humor, love, and reconciliation. You won’t want to miss this one!

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 once their marriage is sanctioned by God that 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 farther and farther away. With Nolan’s new life pulling him irrevocably away from Hannah, it seems only a miracle will bring them back together.
