The Heir (Reid Family Series #1) by Johanna Lindsey

The many wondrous gifts of Johanna Lindsey -- her fiery and endearing characters, her enthralling stories, her ingenious blending of Passion, wit, and emotion -- are all on glorious display in this unforgettable tale about an unwanted title and an unexpected love.

Has anyone in London ever taken part in the coming-out season with less enthusiasm than Sabrina? Luckily, the most sought-after lady in the city has agreed to usher this young, lovely country girl through the perils and pitfalls of her all-important first season.

Dashing highlander Duncan Mac Tavish is even less keen to be in London. Having recently learned he is the sole heirof an English marquis, Duncan is now required to assume his grandfather's title and estates -- and to marry Sabrina's ravishing, viper-tongued guide, who has been heard to make scathing statements in public about her "Scottish barbarian" groom-to-be.

His unwanted betrothal, however, has brought Duncan into close proximity with the enchanting Sabrina -- a kindred spirit whose wit delights him ... and whose essence is the exquisite stuff of dreams. But duty, station, and a secret that dwells in the lady's past forbid Sabrina's and Duncan's desired union -- unless true love can somehow miraculously find a way.

I enjoyed this book. Not one of my favorites, but still a nice Lindsey. I have read many of her books and totally disagree with some of the other reviews. You cannot compare this book to Fires of Winter. Just remember that JL has MANY books and each one needs a different plot and characters. This book was sweet. Sabrina is a wonderful girl and Duncan such a gentleman. I agree that the passion is not as hot, but it was nice in its own way. Definitely recommend it ;0)

The Heir is a sweet story. It's not quite as passionate as some of Lindsey's other books but the characters are interesting and the plot has a lot of interesting turns. Sabrina has to be one of my favorite characters that Johanna Lindsey ever thought up. I would definitely recommend this book!

Sabrina and Duncan in this have a real relationship - based on friendship as well as lust. It's not nearly as passionate as Lindsey's others, where lust turns hatred or dislike to true love, but it's a great read. Especially for those who like to think relationships aren't just based on carnal desire - Sabrina and Duncan I can see living together in blissfull happiness till they die, whereas with some of Johanna Lindsey's characters I get the feeling the second they're too old to have a sex-life the relationship will die. In other words, a great read, but without that consuming desire one associates with Lindsey.

This is by far my favorite Lindsey novel to date. I have read three others, 'The Joining', 'The Pursuit', and 'Say You Love Me', but so far, none of them have come close. 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's cause, and hoping that Duncan would find a way to be with her in the end. Highly recomdended.

From the boring back cover to the lukewarm reviews, I was sure that this book would be a waste of money, but I was actually pleasantly suprised! The characters were all well developed, and the dialog was very witty. The supporting characters were especially enjoyable, and I look forward to a book with Rafe someday in the future. The description on the back cover is slightly confusing (or maybe I'm just dumb) so to clarify...Sabrina is on the marraige market, as is the girl Ophelia who Sabrina is hanging out with. Both are the same age, and Ophelia is trying to figure out a way out of the betrothal she is already in. It is not a book about Ophelia and Duncan not being able to be seperated because of the betrothal, which may come as a relief to some (and perhaps an inducment to actually buy the book?) Anyway, just wanted to say that it is much funnier and more enjoyable than it seems to be on the face of it.

I am a 20 year old that just recently started reading books to go to sleep, but when I read this book, I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen. I knew what I wanted to happen, but the suspense drove me crazy.

I have been a fan of Johanna Lindsey for many years now. I fell in love with her Malory series and was excited about the Reid series. I have to say I was extremely disappointed in this book. The story was completely uninteresting, the story line seemed poorly written, lazy and rushed. I couldn't connect to any of the characters because of this, and found myself checking to make sure this was really written by Johanna Lindsey. Definitely not a good book of hers. Not the mention the many typos and grammatical errors! As I said, I felt the story line and book were carelessly written.

Lindsey’s definitely done it again.  She had me hooked from beginning to end with this one.  I found the storyline to be intriguing and unforgettable.  I also appreciate the fact that she places her stories completely in the time period at hand.  She makes them enjoyable and accessible to modern readers without taking liberties with the history and conventions of the time.  The narrator for the audio version was brilliant.  She could make even the worst book enjoyable.  Paired with this entertaining story it became something unforgettable.   Above all else, this story was just plain fun.  I laughed out loud multiple times.  Lindsey even brought tears to my eyes a time or two. I enjoyed these characters from the get-go.  I also felt a real connection with the main characters.  They were vivid, fun loving individuals who will capture your heart, all the while making you question their rationale at times.  They were the perfect mix of fun and serious, real & dream worthy.  This couple was also the perfect pair, complementing and contrasting each other in turns.  This story found them surrounded by a number of entertaining individuals who definitely added a great deal to the story themselves. I had so much fun with this one.  It is definitely a great addition to Lindsey’s work.

A disappointment compared to most of the authors othe books. Weak hero and heroine and the story seemed to be more about the antagonist instead. The Scottish accent dialog was distracting as well. I kept reading in hope that it would picked up but it never did. I usually love Lindseys stories but this one was flat. Definitely NOT one worth rereads.
