Tess Taylor already lost everything once. The last thing she needs is another failure. Long days of scooping ice cream for a living are long behind her. If she can prove successful in Mergers and Acquisitions, she'll never have to worry about money again. But no amount of hard work has prepared her for Mitch Morgan. He's the kind of distraction she doesn't need and the banker she's supposed to destroy.
Mitch Morgan III may bear his father's good looks and his name, but he certainly didn't inherit his father's trust. Born the child of a torrid affair, nothing was handed to him and no one wants him to succeed. When the rep from Morgan Enterprises storms through his door, he knows he's in for a challenge, but nothing in life prepared him for how hard he falls for Tess.
They were supposed to be bitter enemies. Love wasn't part of the deal. Now, they're forced to make a decision neither could have imagined.
Will Tess choose job security over love? Is Mitch willing to abandon his vendetta in favor of love everlasting?

I really enjoyed reading this book. . A great romantic love story and a story of family love, loyalty, deceit, secrets, and betrayal, This book hooked me from the very start and kept my interest until the last page. The story is well written full of drama, excitement, mystery, long kept secrets, romance, and humor. The characters are engaging and likable, the twist and turns as well as the family dynamics will keep your interest. I can truly recommend this book. I look forward to reading more of the series.
I am in love with this series. Can hardly wait for the next one
Illicit affairs, failed romances, and millionaires; everything you need to steam up the pages. That's what you get with Victoria Pinder's latest release, Secret Heir. There's tons of attraction between Tess and Mitch from the very moment they meet. There's little time to court as they dive headfirst into a relationship over a funeral and a potential merger. That attraction is so strong from the beginning it had me concerned that the story would lose its believability. That type of attraction rarely occurs in real life. But the characters were well written and the story keeps you guessing with all the twists and turns, keeping the believability factor high. I was hoping for a little more conflict when the two matrons of the House of Morgan meet. It just seemed that there were so many issues that they would be in disagreement over. Yet, everything works out and the HEA is good. It's also what I describe as a "clean" romance in that there are almost no descriptions of sexual activity amongst the main characters. After reading so many books that are explicit in the descriptions of sexual activity, it's a refreshing change to read a romance with all the heat but implied action. Secret Heir is a good read and I enjoyed it very much. Rating: 4 stars
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT: In Secret Heir, the reader finds Mitch Morgan III, born on the wrong side of the blanket, and Tess Taylor, an employee of The House Of Morgan. Mitch was born from a long-term affair between his mother and Mitchell Morgan II. I felt so sorry for Mitch; he's a man who does not understand that love does not have to hurt. After seeing the hurt, pain, and humiliation his mother suffered, to say he has relationship issues is an understatement. Then you had Tess, vulnerable, insecure, and determined never to fail again. Tess found herself fired and losing her fiance, Kevin, on the same day. Kevin told her she is a failure and his name could not be linked to her inability. He walked out of her life leaving her heart broken. With her heart torn and her failure fresh, her mother gets her a job with Peter Morgan. Peter's from the legitimate side of Mitchell Morgan II's family. Tess receives a critical assignment, and she knows failure is not an option. Meanwhile, Mitch is determined to achieve revenge on the legitimate Morgans by cold-blooded use of Tess. However, fate has other plans for Mitch and Tess. Oh my, the family dynamics of this story are awesome and terrible. Two separate families, born from the same selfish man; with one family legitimate and one illegitimate. The products of an evilly greedy man who thought only of himself; he's willing to do any despicable act to keep each family. He's a man and father beyond contempt. What a piece of work Pinder created in Mitchell, II. Victoria Pinder kept the emotions and suspense at a high peak, as Mitch and Tess begin an emotionally intense relationship. The attraction between them steams and rolls off the pages. Although the love scenes are not erotic or explicit, they are very passionate and emotional. Pinder skillfully developed each character in Secret Heir and provided an intriguing mystery with a startling revelation. Pinder filled this story with emotion, mystery, and suspense. I found her scenes transitioned smoothly and her writing flowed well. Pinder included a wealth of family dynamics and an unbelievable antic by one character. I can not name the character without giving away spoilers. Pinder kept me glued to my E-reader; I read this book straight through. I could not stop until I knew the what, when, and why of this story. The reader learns more and more background in each book of the Morgan Families. Secret Heir is an excellent addition to The House of Morgan Series. I received this book from the author and chose to review the book with an honest book review voluntarily.
