"Filled with fabulously British banter, wit, and heart, this delightful book is one of my must-read rom coms of the year." - Evie Dunmore, USA Today bestselling author of Portrait of a Scotsman

/> "Virginia Heath's fun characters and situations will have you laughing out loud! Don't miss this wonderful read!" - Sabrina Jeffries, New York Times bestselling author


The first in a new historical rom-com series, a handsome earl hires a fake fiancée to keep his matchmaking mother at bay, but hilarity ensues when love threatens to complicate everything.

The last thing Hugh Standish, Earl of Fareham, ever wants is a wife. Unfortunately for him, his mother is determined to find him one, even from across the other side of the ocean. So Hugh invents a fake fiancée to keep his mother's matchmaking ways at bay. But when Hugh learns his interfering mother is on a ship bound for England, he realizes his complicated, convoluted but convenient ruse is about to implode. Until he collides with a beautiful woman, who might just be the miracle he needs.
Minerva Merriwell has had to struggle to support herself and her two younger sisters ever since their feckless father abandoned them. Work as a woodcut engraver is few and far between, and the Merriwell sisters are nearly penniless. So when Hugh asks Minerva to pose as his fiancée while his mother is visiting, she knows that while the scheme sounds ludicrous, the offer is too good to pass up.
Once Minerva and her sisters arrive at Hugh's estate, of course nothing goes according to his meticulous plan. As hilarity and miscommunication ensue while everyone tries to keep their tangled stories straight, Hugh and Minerva's fake engagement starts to turn into a real romance. But can they trust each other when their relationship started with a lie? The first book in the Merriwell Sisters series, Never Fall for Your Fiancée is a hilarious, sparkling historical romantic comedy from Virginia Hea… (més)

Excellent!

What can go wrong with hiring a lady to play as your fiancé when your mother (who is determined to see you married) is coming for a visit? Hugh Standish, the Earl of Fareham, is about to find out. Hugh hires a young lady named Minerva to act as his fiancé, but little do either of them know that their fake engagement will start to feel real.

I really enjoy reading the "fake engagement turns to real love" trope and regency era novels. The characters felt real and relatable. However, I adored the butler, Payne. His name suits him greatly as he is at times a pain to his master with his sassy and often insubordinate ways, yet was still appreciated by the Earl and his mother. He doesn't hold back on telling Hugh precisely what he thinks, he has a dry sense of humor, and yet he supports Hugh and Minerva throughout the story.

I found this book to be humorous and fun, and often found myself laughing out loud. A great start to a series of novels following the Merriwell sisters.

DNF after 50%; too slow and nothing was happening; skipped to the end ( )

I did adore the mother. Otherwise, maybe this is my own fault for picking this up--past the first 30% or so everything felt predictable and done before. ( )

Amusing historial romance. I think I expected something different from the summary, perhaps more enemies to lovers than what I got.

The series needs more queerness. ( )

Never Fall for Your Fiancee by Virginia Heath is a 2021 St. Martin’s Griffin publication.

Romantic comedies overwhelmingly land in the contemporary category these days, it seems, so when I saw this book was marketed as a historical romantic comedy, I had to check it out.

Hugh, the Earl of Fareham, is in a panic. He is not marriage material in his opinion, but his mother, who married for love, is determined to see Hugh happily married. To prevent her constant matchmaking, he invented a fiancée, named Minerva. But when his mother announces, she is coming to meet his intended face to face, he fears the jig is up.

When he comes to the aid of a young woman in a heated argument with a man who owes her money, he learns to his utter disbelief that her name is Minerva! He offers her a job posing as his fiancée and because this kind of money could help her care for her two younger sisters, she agrees.

Naturally, deception rarely works out as planned. Hugh and Minvera’s plans go terribly awry when Hugh’s mother arrives early, and their plans to ‘end the engagement’ is unavoidably delayed…

A breath of fresh air!

The premise is not a new one in the world of romance, by any means, but Heath freshens the trope by adding droll humor and a non-stop comedy of errors. (The butler is hilarious) This is just the kind of book I needed right now. The light tone, the delicious scandals, and humor kept me thoroughly entertained from start to finish!

Overall, if you need a mood enhancer or just want to enjoy a nice, easy and fun story for a change, this is the book for you. I can’t wait to read the next installment!
