The Heir from Nowhere was a decent read nothing great. The characters didn't really pull me in that much and Dominic was bit of a snob and judgmental in the beginning but he did get a shock that due to the clinic's mix-up he is about to become a father. His dead wife Carla wanted a baby badly but she had issues with weight and stuff so when he sees a really thin Angie he is not impressed and she is nearly destitute and comes from the same poor neighborhood as him.

Angie never really wanted a chil

This is the forth time I have read this book, and I loved it just as much as I did the first time I read. Not sure how, but I still managed to get tears in my eyes in one emotional part. Any book that can make me cry, is a good book.

Dominic learned a hard lesson. All the money in the world can't save the people he loved. He and his wife wanted to have a baby. she died before they had one. He is broken inside. His world is turned upside down when Angelina contacts him to tell him the clinic made

After having read The Accidental Birthright by another author, Maisey Yates, and enjoying it thoroughly, I decided that I needed to see if there were any other HP’s that contain IVF mixups, and stumbled across this one.

This was my first book by Trish Morey and I will look for others by this author. It was a great read, and I found I couldn't put the book down. The author did a great job of taking a topic that was a little far-fetched and making it very real. Angelina Cameron is in a terrible marriage. She decides to go forward with invitro with the hopes that a child will fix their marriage. Unfortunately she finds that she has been impregnated with the wrong embryo and is carrying another man's child. Dominic ...more

I looooved this book! I simply couldn't put it down. From beginning to end, I was drawn into the story. It had lots of twists and turns that I didn't expect. *I haven't read a Trish Morey book yet that I didn't like.

I always enjoy Trish's books and The Heir from Nowhere is really good. I looooved the opening scenes and wondered how on earth the hero and heroine were going to get together.

I enjoyed this book. Read it in one sitting as I was pulled in. I didn't care for Dominic's judgements of Angelina, especially since it was revealed that he grew up in an area close by. It made him come off as a snob and he was very harsh (especially his thoughts about him not wanting to slum- OUCH). Especially at first when he seemed to kind of relish kicking the woman who clearly from appearance looked like life had put the wringer. Despite all that, he did win me over with his apologies and r ...more

WHY COULDN'T THIS HAVE BEEN LONGER!!!!??!? It was amazing and one of the best third person books I have read in a long time. It had an amazing and very unusual plot but that made it all the more different and unique. You don't see many I'm having your baby even though we've never done it or even met books. At least not that I've seen or read.

This was a phenomenal book and I just wished it was from first or second person perspective because either could have been so much better! There was

"Tu non mi conosci, ma io ti darò un erede..."
Il preciso, luccicante e ordinato mondo che Dominic Pirelli ha impiegato una vita a costruire crolla improvvisamente nel momento in cui una donna mai sentita prima pronuncia al telefono quelle incredibili parole. Sebbene diffidi delle intenzioni di questa sconosciuta, Dominic acconsente a incontrarla: suo figlio, quel figlio che ha sempre sognato di avere, non può crescere lontano da lui! Ciò che non immaginava era di restare ammaliato dalla forza e
I wasn't sure why I added this book to my to-read list. I guess I was intrigued how the hell she could be pregnant with his child if they do not know each other. I wonder how he didn't sue hospital for that? Or how her greedy husband didn't think about that?
The story is ok. I missed the way the fall in love with each other. I guess that was love from the first sight. And I also need to say that I expected more from his assistant. She was so envious in the beginning that I though they must be sl

I enjoyed the basic plot and the writing was really good. I just didn't like the plot pacing. Spoilers below!!!!


Obviously her and Shayne got divorced, but there was almost no mention of that after she moved in. I felt that was on opened side plot that could have been closed in a conversation. I'm not sure why the character Simone was introduced, unless it was a play to expose Angie's feelings towards him...?

I liked how it turned out in the end but one question I couldn't get why Angie get IVF in first place and that she was poor to give what ex-husband wanted. I do get why Dominic's deceased wife Carla couldn't get the end, I am little confused whether Angie is able to conceive after the birth. Anyway, I am glad it turned out a wonderful ending.

This book flowed so well and I just loved it. Dominic and Angelina are perfect for on another but it took an accident for them to find each other. I loved the fact that the child was born at the end with love. I am glad that the secretary was no interference like I thought.

An ok read. The fertility clinic thing was not done believably. A near poverty couple and an extremely wealthy billionaire couple going to the same clinic? The heroine had too much self-pity. Lot of inconsistencies like this which made it a very ok read.

When you read a Harlequin book, you gotta suspend a bit of reality. Yes, this book is about the billionaire that swoops in and the poor girl who becomes pretty, but they do build a relationship. I enjoyed it for a quick read. I hate, hate, hate the cover though!!!!

Was just okay, the story was decent, but I didn't feel the chemistry between the H/H. Felt like something was lacking.

trish morey is kind of hit or miss for me so this was a very pleasant surprise--i really liked it. and with today's technology, the premise is no longer so far fetched as it once was.
she was married and husband left her because of the mix up This is not the one that is good in this trope.
