Dear Reader,The Heir first appeared as Lord Deverill's Heir all the way back in 1980. I have extensively rewritten this novel, giving it greater scope and depth, but most important are the changes in all the characters. They are now richer and fuller, brimming with life and passion.Justin Deverill, the new Earl of Strafford, is a military man who is strong, shrewd, stubborn, and very possibly one of the most handsome men to ever become an earl. As for his cousin, Arabella, whom he must wed or gain nothing but an empty title, she is more like him than either of them would like to admit. Faced with an order from her father's will to marry this man, she rebels. Since her father is dead, she has no other target except the new earl. In him, however, Arabella meets her match.These two flamboyant people do wed, despite the fact that Justin believes she has betrayed him before their wedding and thus, married or not, there is hell to pay.Who does the earl believe is his wife's lover? There is only one snake in the garden, the young and charming Comte de Trecassis, a relative visiting from France. The earl wants to kill him, but holds off because he knows the young man came for a reason. The earl wants him under his eye until he figures out why. He knows he is up to no good; he just doesn't know what the no good is.Justin and Arabella set off fireworks, both in thier anger and in their passion. I hope you enjoy The Heir. Do let me know what you think.Catherine Coulter

This is a very dated romance. The original published date is 1996 and it really doesn't hold up to modern standards in my opinion. The hero is extremely misogynistic and treats the heroine very badly. I reread books all the time and this is not one I'm likely to ever want to read again.

I read this book a second time, having forgotten the bulk of the story anyway. Once I started re-reading it I remembered that someone on a romance book website had been really angry about this storyline. Without giving away too much, I do have to agree that it is somewhat misogynistic. For a romance novel it isnt romantic at all.
