“The Heiress's Homecoming is the fifth book I've read by Regina Scott and, while I enjoyed all of them, I think this is my favorite so far! I loved getting to read Samantha Everard's story. After being introduced to her in the previous "Everard Legacy" books, it was great to see where life took her and if she got a happy ending.
I loved the characters! Some of my favorites were Will, Samantha, Samantha's cousins, and Mrs. Dallsten. One of my favorite things about The Heiress's Homecoming was how Jerome, Richard, and Vaughn were a part of the story - it was great to see how life was going for them.
There was some suspense in The Heiress's Homecoming and while I did guess who the "bad guy" was, it was still great to be "on the edge" of my seat during some scenes.
Overall, I loved The Heiress's Homecoming and recommend it if you enjoy historical romances. I think you should probably read the previous books in the series first so you know the complete background story - though Regina Scott did a good job of giving the reader the pertinent details. Great read!

“The Heiress’s Homecoming by Regina Scott
Book 4: The Everard Legacy
This story takes place in 1813 in Cumberland, England. William Wentworth never planned on being Earl of Kendrick, he was a second son after all. The murder of his brother and the death of his father left him without a choice. It was time to return and be a father to his son as well. And then the night of his son’s seventeenth birthday party Will laid eyes on the most beautiful woman. A woman his son was besotted with.
Samantha, Lady Everard had many secrets in her life. One was about the murder of Will’s brother. A secret that had to be kept to protect so many people she loved. Her other secret was what would happen if she wasn’t married by her twenty-fifth birthday. Which she wouldn’t be. She knew that love and marriage was something she would never have in her life, no matter the other costs.
This is the fourth and last book in the series and I would suggest reading the previous books; The Rogue’s Reform, The Captain’s Courtship and The Rake’s Redemption to help understand Samantha’s past and her future. This story has the fear of the past holding the characters back from a joyful future. The fear of making the mistakes of those before them and who to trust, as people aren’t always who they seem to be. An exciting story line with characters who come alive. A series worth reading.
