#Publication Day Push #Never Fall for Your Fiancee by Virginia Heath #Comedy #Romcom #Historical Romance @rararesources

Today I’m delighted to participate in the blog tour/publication push for Virginia Heath’s new historical romance Never Fall for Your Fiancee!

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 thoughts:

I tend to go for contemporary romance, while my mother is a big fan of anything historical- she has been trying for years to get me read her favourite authors. This time I can absolutely agree with her that historical romance can be utterly delightful and extremely entertaining. Virginia Heath’s book has everything I’m looking for in a romantic comedy- well-developed, funny characters, both main and secondary, a complex storyline (but not too complicated to make the reader feel they are literally ‘losing the plot’)and a great sense of humour, reminiscent of Oscar Wilde.

If the fake engagement trope is one of your favourites, you’re going to love the story of Hugh Standish, Earl of Fareham, who ‘accidentally’ invented a fiancee (called Minerva, a very wise choice all considered) to placate his well-meaning, interfering mother. She finally found love and is living her own HEA overseas, from where she is conspiring to do everything possible to make Hugh experience a similar marital bliss. It isn’t that Hugh doesn’t believe in matrimony – he just thinks that the philandering blood of his father runs in his veins and not wanting to break a poor woman’s heart, he doesn’t want to tie himself with marriage vows. Hence the invention of the mythical Minerva and this fantastic plan has worked so well for two years. But now that his mother is about to bestow her presence on Hugh, he has a slight problem- he needs to find a fake fiancee. He can’t believe his luck when he meets Minerva Merriwell, who is in a desperate need for means to support her two younger sisters. All she will have to do is pretend to be Hugh’s fiancee for a short time. You know how it is all going to end? well yes, but the young couple’s road to happiness is filled with so many delightful complications. Oh what a tangled web we weave….

I loved the connection, the sizzling chemistry between the protagonists and of course all the shennaigans of the supporting characters. The book was very entertaining and the narrative just flowed so easily to make it impossible to put down this fabulous romcom.

Highly recommended. I’m already looking forward to the next story in this lovely series.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC provided in exchange for an honest opinion.

Author Bio – When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Twenty-two books and two Romantic Novel of the Year Award nominations later, and it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
