She's an American heiress. He's a devilish earl. When these two collide, the sparks ignite a shocking scandal in USA Today bestselling author Laura Lee Guhrke's unforgettable Victorian-era romance.

Linnet Holland wants nothing to do with fortune hunters. No, she's determined to marry a man who loves her. But just as she's about to accept the perfect marriage proposal from the man she wants, the rakish Earl of Featherstone interrupts and ruins everything, including her reputation, with his smoldering kiss . . .

Jack Featherstone knows all about Linnet's "intended," and he's determined she won't fall prey to that villain as other women have in the past. But when his attempt to save Linnet ruins her instead, he knows he has to make things right. So he sets out to win this golden beauty . . . and prove to her that being ruined by him was the best thing that could have happened to her.

At times the characters were funny and entertaining but the end felt rushed and anti climactic. The main conflicts was the heroine getting past the inciting incident and learning to trust the hero but I feel like it didn't matter if the hero trusted her and given that he never shared the truth with her I feel like he didn't.

A delightful historical romance that was both realistic and romantic, Catch a Falling Heiress was a wonderful read. I really liked this book and I found it to be an enjoyable read. Linnet was a strong-willed heroine. She refused to march to anyone else's tune and was determined to do what was best for herself. She had doubts about her own judgement in regards to men, having been burned twice before, and that led to her to make inaccurate assumptions. But, that got better over the course of the book. I thought she was a likable character. Jack was great as well. He made a mistake, though not out of any maliciousness, and he was determined to make it up to her. He wanted to marry Linnet and he knew that he had to earn her trust before she agreed. He really was sweet, very loyal to those he cared about, and a likable hero in general. The romance was lovely. It moved realistically, with Linnet slowly coming to trust Jack. Their feelings grew along the way and the chemistry between them was constantly there. I thought they were great together. The plot was fast paced and I was kept interested the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was perfect. Catch a Falling Heiress was a fantastic romance that I really liked. It was a sweet, enjoyable read. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

I am an avid fan historical romance. Love them. Read popular authors, indie authors, self publish, upcoming... i have read them all. I have been disappointed with some in the past, usually do to poor writing and editing. However this "book" wasn't even worth finishing. I tried, for the simple fact that i spent money on it. I couldn't. 77 pages in, over 1/3 of the way in, you are still on the first scene and its just useless dribble. No substance to the story. When the setting finally changes, its the exact same scene all over again, just different place. I was truly disappointed with this book. It was just bland. You need more than just boy compromise girl, girl object entire book then miraculously fall in love!

Catch A Falling Heiress is my first read by Laura Lee Guhrke. I enjoyed Linnet and Jack's story. This book is well written with fantastic characters, drama, humor and sexy bits. I found myself sympathizing with Linnet and cheering Jack on all through the book. I look forward to reading more from Laura Lee Guhrke in the future. Catch a Falling Heiress is book 3 in the An American Heiress Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

3.5 Stars – A Hero Falls Hard Jack Featherstone is on a mission. A matter of honor sends the Earl to infiltrate the American Knickerbocker set. He sets the trap, destroys a villain, and finds the woman he wants to marry. Unfortunately, he’s a penniless noble and the heiress views him as another fortune-hunter. Never having had a bean to his name he thought marriage and family out of his reach, but that one kiss incinerated those hopeless thoughts! Jack will pursue her. She will see he is the best man, penniless or not!  Linnet Holland wants a love match. Not finding one in London brings her back to the States to a childhood friend that wants to secretly meet to ask her an important question. The Earl of Featherstone's interference alters the course for all parties involved and ruins Linnet. Since she can’t have marry for love she’ll outrun the gossip and return to London for a second round of matchmaking. If only Jack wouldn’t interfere with her efforts and arouse her senses. The heroine is compromised. It’s a classic historical romance trope. The emotions inciting the rakish hero into such a situation require flair and credibility. When Jack beholds Linnet across the crowded room he’s awed. This rake is drawn to her like a moth to a flame. But I didn’t feel the chemistry down to my toes. In the aftermath of Linnet’s ruin, Jack’s actions are practical and the romance fizzled a little bit. There’s also a plot device brought into play that I do not like. It may have tarnished this historical romance for me.  The bachelor want to marry. It’s a charming twist whenever the hero pursues his heroine. Jack's definitely in hot pursuit! Once Jack and Linnet re-encounter one another in England the plot takes a turn for the better. Jack isn’t shy. He wants Linnet to be his wife and family. He demonstrates how she matters to him. At this point, Catch a Falling Heiress the story is laced with witty dialogue, breathless anticipation, and heartfelt romance. Jack is funny and romantic. Jack woos Linnet. Linnet is the one whose heart and mind war with one another. This is the most riveting part of the story and why I love Ms. Guhrke’s writing. The ending felt abrupt for all the work that went into this couple's happily ever after. As the third book in the American Heiress in London, Catch a Falling Heiress can stand alone. The mitigating circumstances causing Jack to travel to the United States - which are linked to events in How to Lose an Duke in Ten Days - are explained in the opening chapter. Previous characters are present, but don’t distract by remaining in the background or interacting as part of this book’s storyline. While this is an enjoyable historical romance the slow beginning, predictable nature, and abrupt ending deprive this book of a four star rating, making this third installment the weak link in a wonderful series. I do anticipate the fourth book, which will feature Denys and Lola, the Moulin Rouge performer he can’t forget.  Digital RC compliments of Avon via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.
