The grandson of a Scottish clan laird, Duncan MacTavish is shocked to learn that his other grandfather was an English marquis whose title and London estate he is now required to take on. Worse still, he is engaged to a stranger who has mocked him in public. But his bride-to-be, Ophelia, has been guiding a lovely and witty, if dreadfully inexperienced, country girl named Sabrina through the latter's all-important first coming-out season. The enchanting Sabrina enthralls Duncan much more than his own intended does, and she shares his passionate feelings as well. But duty and circumstance - plus a scandal in Sabrina's family past - have made it impossible for her and the dashing highlander to be together . . . unless true love can somehow, miraculously, find a way.

Listener Opinions

    " A large part of enjoying a novel or a movie for me is that I can identify, or at least empathise, with the main and secondary characters, and in 'The Heir', this was the case. The storyline is fairly typical of romance novels, but Lindsey writes well and makes her characters interesting. I also enjoyed the secondary characters in this one: Ophelia, Raphael, Duncan's grandfathers, Ophelia's sycophants. A nice read. "

    " Lots of twists and turns. This book is an easy and fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonja | 2/11/2014

    " Ok, it was pretty cheesy. And writing out the Scottish brogue gets a little old. But the characters were cute and the plot was amusing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Violet | 2/8/2014

    " Typical romance book, nothing really outstanding. Reading a Scottish accent was a bit distracting at times. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sherri | 2/7/2014

    " I couldn't get past three chapters of this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lady Danielle aka The Book Huntress | 1/26/2014

    " This was an enjoyable book. It was a different type of book for Lindsey but had her familiar and enjoyable writing style. I was getting a bit worried because it seemed like it took a while for things to get going between Duncan and Sabrina, and Ophelia was annoying the heck out of me. That's why I put it down...for quite a while. An online reading buddy encouraged me to continue it and I am glad. It was a comedy of manners and dealt with the machinations of Duncan's grandfathers to get him married off so he could give them great-grandchildren and to see him settled. It also showed how silly society can be. The feted beauty Ophelia has the personality of an ugly crone, yet Sabrina, who is considered plain, is the nicest, sweetest, most interesting person you could know. Unfortunately her marriage prospects are nil because of family scandal (which is really silly when you read what the scandal is). I would not say this is the best Lindsey book, but it's a good one, and it won me over in the end. Read it when you want to read a book that's Austenesque but is written by Johanna Lindsey. "

    " It was a nice change this book the way they fell in love but it was way too slow and almost silly the problems they face. Nice entertainment but not the best book. Also I don't know why it is part of the REid family I guess for Ofelia) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cyndy | 12/16/2013

    " Meh, predictable. Something to read while my library requests came in. Kind of a nice break from something a little more meaty. The best part is talking in the Scottish brogue whilst 'no readin' :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 'yossra Inadrakh | 12/16/2013

    " i loved every detail in this book !! , i adore this passage: he did gather her in his arms, though to thankher for trying, and it was like heaven and hel for those few moments, savoring the feel of him, yet knowing it would ever be that close to him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 11/26/2013

    " Read this before reading "The Devil that Tamed Her" it will make more sense. The heir Duncan is suppose to marry Ophelia but falls hard for Sabrina. A sweet love story of friendship and discovering true love. Nice historical romance! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 11/6/2013

    " pure smut:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 10/27/2013

    " Another Author i'm constantly impressed with. Absolutly love this book! You can never go wrong with a Johanna Lindsey book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Manju | 10/19/2013

    " My My...a story can twist and turn so much. literally as if just for the purpose of having a thick novel, the author put up so many obstacles in the way of the marriage between the main characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danette Steward | 9/24/2013

    " This was mostly boring. "High schoolish" plot and no steam. Lindsey's Malory series is so good and the rest of her books are hit and miss (mostly miss) for me. I'm beginning to believe Lindsey has schizophrenia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kara | 9/10/2013

    " Ehhhh romance was only okay. And since that's kind of the point of this type of book...not good. Also kind of irked me that people were constantly "bursting out laughing" at things that weren't that funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toni | 7/7/2013

    " Fun light reading Predictable but enjoyable. A nice quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Poppy Fields | 6/24/2013

    " Amusing, predictable, but entertaining despite the worst narration I have ever heard on on audiobook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Chan | 5/11/2013

    " not bad. yaa, Duncan itu agak naif. haha "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shweta choudhary | 5/5/2013

    " I dint like it that much..there was no spark in the romance..the storyline for me was week.. I was left unsatisfied after reading it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 12/9/2012

    " I pretty much liked Rafe Locke the best! But I am worried about reading his book because I heard his wasn't as good. Ah well. I always find Lindsey's books to progress a little too rapidly, but I did enjoy this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 9/23/2012

    " Read for the 2nd time 10/10/2010 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy Parsons | 5/14/2012

    " Gotta love a Highland Scott transplanted in England. More so with the accent on audio. But the machinations to keep them apart were lame. "We're friends only." (But wow can he kiss, not to mention what happened in a carriage)Still enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martine | 3/31/2012

    " An entertaining read for anyone who wishes to break up some monotony and enjoy some romance. Who doesn't love a Scottish Rogue? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 2/23/2012

    " Could not put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 5/1/2011

    " Duncan & Sabrina have a genuine relationship that makes sense!! They do not fall in love after just one brief meeting, nor is their relationship based on sex and attraction.
    I found myself rooting for Sabrina, hoping that Duncan would find a way to be with her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/2/2011

    " Surprisingly, I didn't want to throw this book @ a wall. Lindsey is far better suited to historicals than scifi. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Randyy | 12/17/2010

    " I read this book but I don't even remember the content. Not one bit. That tells you its bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zignema | 12/8/2010

    " It was a nice change this book the way they fell in love but it was way too slow and almost silly the problems they face. Nice entertainment but not the best book. Also I don't know why it is part of the REid family I guess for Ofelia) "

    " Who doesn't love a highlander from Scotland! I love this little story from Johanna Lindsey it kind of reminds me of a Walflower Christmas that I enjoyed so much! I look forward to reading more from this author! Nice Romance!!! "

    " karena lebih duluan baca yg Ophelia, jd ngerti banget knp dy bitchy bgt dsini
    itu cuma topengnya dy aja
    yg pasti Raphael jg lebih mencuri perhatian drpd Duncan McBoring dsini.. huff "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adeodata | 9/19/2010

    " Different with other Johanna's novels, this story begins with friendship and ends with love...
    the story is slow and not aggressive as usual, so sometimes can be boring.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly | 8/30/2010
