This is a historical romance in a medieval setting. Although marketed as part of the author's Song series, the only clear relationship is the time period and the occasional mention of characters from previous books -- none of them actually appear in this work, and thus the story can be enjoyed by those who have not read the full series. The Valcourt Heiress has some elements which will be familiar to fans of Coulter's work, with a plucky maiden heroine in disguise, a brave but conveniently clueless hero, an odd sprinkling of magical workings and a surprise twist at the end. The story is light and enjoyable, though not overly memorable. [Note, this review is based on an Advanced Readers Edition]

The is definetly not her best. This is not up to the standard that made me a Catherine Coulter fan. She really needs to go back to how she was writing when she wrote her classics like the Sherbrooke Bride series or the Star series those are the Coulter books that made me a hugh fan of Catherine Coulter. After reading The Wizard's Daughter and this book, I am very leary of anything she may write in the future. Catherine has lost her magic with the romance.

I love 'older' titles by Catherine Coulter, so was excited to see a new one. Sorely disappointed. This book wasn't worth my time to read. Characters are ridiculous, and I don't at all like the magic in the story line. Amazingly, there was little to no romance in this book.

More a romantic tale than anything else, the story plot adds intrigue, a "who done it" aspect, and well defined characters. I would hesitate to call it historical fiction, but it does take place in medieval England and some attempt is made to describe the times. Except for its length I would've called it a "young adult" book. Perhaps and "early 20s" book. I am retired, so maybe I'm regressing to my younger years, but I did enjoy it.
