New York Times best-selling author, Catherine Coulter, has earned enduring popularity for drawing lush historical settings in her richly layered romances. Rewritten for the 90s, The Heir is a scintillating tale of a couple's love amidst treachery in early 19th century England. When the Earl of Strafford dies, he leaves startling instructions in his will that will force Justin, his distant nephew, and his headstrong daughter Arabella to marry. Their fiery union of convenience mires them in a web of deceit that threatens to destroy them and the love that is beginning to spark in their lives. With a masterful touch, Catherine Coulter creates heroes and heroines that burst from the page, filled with life, excitement, and emotion. Add Steven Crossley's stirring narration, and this moving tale becomes a breathtaking experience.

"The handsome, dark-haired hero on the cover of The Heir is a dead ringer for a current soap opera heartthrob. The story, set in the early 1800's, is a bit soapy, too, full of secrets and lust. Mainly, however, it's Romance, complete with an arranged marriage, a haunted mansion and a mysterious half-sister. Read in the crisp British accent of Steven Crossley, the unabridged version is absorbing listening--if you're willing to wait out the sluggish start. Although Crossley is an expressive reader, a female narrator would be better for this book's multiple points of view. Crossley is too squeaky as the heroine, making a character already presented as "spoiled" even harder to like. M.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
