Full review on Faithfully Bookish
Fans of Downton Abbey, upstairs-downstairs, and rags-to-riches romance… brace yourselves, this story is about to knock your stockings off!!
Nolan Price is a determined and hard-working (inescapably handsome) young man of faith, integrity, and loyalty. He’s also completely and entirely blindsided when his world is turned upside down by his mother’s final confession (who wouldn’t be?!).
Hannah Burnham is a humble kitchen maid and devoted sister. Struggles with insecu ...more
I really enjoyed this book overall. :D I can definitely see some of the romance being too much for some, but otherwise I’d recommend it. Full review to come.
Her best book yet!
I'll admit it took me awhile to get into this story. I'm not really sure why, but for quite a few chapters I wasn't sure I was going to love it. Then something clicked and I was totally hooked. I was really impressed with the versatility of Mason's writing in this book. Becasue it included so much more than what you traditionally find in a historical novel. The romance was wonderful. Like her best yet! And I loved that there were elements of suspense too! Mason is also known fo ...more

I think I squealed when I saw this in the bookstore and my heart did a little happy dance but I played it uber cool as I made my purchase. That lasted until I got out the door whereupon I skippedy-dooed my way to the bus stop and pulled out A Most Noble Heir and commenced reading. And missed my bus but I didn't even care because, well, I had a new book friend to pass the time with until the next one came. And my, did that cover get a lot of comments from fellow passengers once I finally settled ...more

Wow, this was my first book by this author but if all are as intriguing and well written as this one, it will not be my last!
Solid and intense plot to keep readers awaken 'til late at night; there’s much more than a simple life-changing event going around here. A hint of mystery, a lesson on true love, and a good amount of tenderness builds the backbone of this story.
This intricate story draws many sides of the characters. Start from the title "The Noble Heir", you expect a constancy in the mai ...more
