Never Fall for Your Fiancée written by Virginia Heath, publisher Headline Eternal, is available NOW in ebook and paperback format.
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’

Never Fall for Your Fiancee by Virginia Heath is book one in a new trilogy called The Merriwell Sisters, published by Headline Eternal an imprint of Headline publishing.
Virginia Heath is known for her great characterisations with fabulous leading ladies and gentleman creating duo acts with quick witted banter and sizzling chemistry. With this new series we are treated to what the author does best and the leading lady, Minerva, is a perfect match for our leading man, Hugh, it’s just that they don’t know this yet!
Hugh has a dilemma, he’s trying to think of ways to stop his lovely but interfering mother play at matchmaking. Hugh doesn’t want a wife, he doesn’t think with his lineage that he has the right qualities for a husband. He doesn’t want to upset his mum so invents a fake fiancee! All was going well on paper but when his mum intends to visit soon to meet her future daughter-in-law panic sets in.
On his latest trip into the city of London Hugh helps a damsel in distress and when he discovers her name is the same as his fake fiancee he can’t help but plot a scheme to keep his ruse alive.
Minerva Merriwell has been struggling for a few years providing shelter, food and warmth for her sisters and herself since their no good father left them. So when a gentleman offers to pay her a princely sum to act as his fiancee for a few weeks she feels like all her prayers have been answered.
What follows is a crazy couple of weeks were life for all is definitely not the norm. Lies and acts are in abundance and it’s hard to learn what is real and what is not. Hugh’s simple, advantaged life is about to become confusing and chaotic but when he starts to feel emotions he’s not felt before he questions whether he is feeling quite well.
A myriad of characters in a comical, calamity filled adventure for all. I did kind of feel sorry for Hugh at times as he was digging himself a hole that was becoming deeper each minute! Fun, entertaining and filled with a glorious romance.
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.
