Helpful Score: 3


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]
