About the Book
Miss Harriet Hancock enjoys playing the role of eccentric heiress, using her wealth and influence to cleverly and anonymously better the lives of those in Newmarket. Though she keeps people at a distance to protect a years-old secret, when her friend pleads for help on a personal project, Harriet can’t resist.
Stable hand Jonas Fitzroy would do anything for his twin sister, even if it means seeking out the woman whose meddling ways have made him wary and suspicious. The last thing he expects is for Miss Hancock to request his help in writing a book. Intent on revealing her underlying plan, Jonas agrees.
As they work together, an unexpected friendship forms. But when things for once don’t go according to Harriet’s plan, she’s left wondering if good intentions might not be enough. Is there a way to mend the broken pieces of her life? And will Jonas give her another chance at his heart?

In My Opinion
I can’t decide if Harriet and Jonas are at odds because they’re opposites or because they’re so alike (they’re both fixers even though they approach problems in extremely different ways) that’s what creates the questions between them. Either way, Enchanting the Heiress by Kristi Ann Hunter was a delight to read.
Harriet’s got good intentions. She wants to help people, but she manipulates them to get there. Jonas is more straightforward, but the one person he’s been intent on fixing everything for is his twin sister who no longer needs him to fix things in her life now that she’s married.
I loved that Hunter used so much scripture in this book. It’s part of Jonas, and even though he doesn’t always use the Bible verses as intended, this part of his character shows me that he’s going to be a strong spiritual leader for Harriet who has a lot of growing in that area to do.
Readers also get a good number of cameos from people in Hunter’s previous books which is a fun surprise for those of us who have been fans since the Hawthorne House days, but they also aren’t so obvious that a new reader will be lost. Anyone in search of an engaging regency romance with a few laughs, some great banter, and solid character growth throughout cannot go wrong with this book.
