The Plot Thickens: A Review of Suzanna Lynn’s “The Heir”

Goodreads.com Description: “When Baylin and Luana find out she is with child, they are certain the worst is behind them. As Luana and Baylin’s relationship grows stronger every day, the entire Kingdom of Grasmere celebrates the prospect of an heir to the throne. However, the arrival of the royal family from Mirstone not only brings the chance of another deadly troll war, but also the prospect of an arranged marriage of the Kingdoms.

In the midst of it all, Baylin is forced to choose between his love for Luana and his fealty to his father and the Kingdom – knowing that his decision could potentially set the Keld Kingdoms against each other during a savage war.

Will Luana and Baylin be able to overcome the demands of the Kingdom and find happiness? Or will they be forced apart by duty, bloodshed and strife.”

My Review:

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Recommended for Mature Readers 18+ due to sexual content.

The Heir was another great installment in the Bed Wife Chronicles! The action increased and the plot thickened. Two things that are not usually expected in a historical romance novel.

Lynn, however, doesn’t write the atypical romance novel. The Heir read more like a magical fantasy couched in a historical romance story. She added intrigue with new characters–fairies, elves, and a set of questionable royals.

I loved the development of the main characters, Luana and Baylin. We met this young, innocent girl in The Bed Wife. Well, say goodbye to innocence. Luana has always had a backbone, but now she’s brave enough to show all her spunk. She’s even gained a little wisdom to go along with it. Baylin is even more admirable. He’s nothing like his father, the King. He has a heart and a great sense of what is the right thing to do.

Every story needs good villains and you’ll find them in The Heir. Lynn gives nothing away with this bunch. You’ll have to read the next installment to find out their true motivation.

I really enjoyed reading The Heir. Look for my review on her latest novella, The Queen, tomorrow!
