Publisher’s Description:

They call her Lady Unlucky…

With three dead fiancées, Lady Eva Hyde has positively no luck when it comes to love. She sets sail for New York City, determined that nothing will deter her dream of becoming an architect, certainly not an unexpected passionate shipboard encounter with a mysterious stranger. But Eva’s misfortune strikes once more when she discovers the stranger who swept her off her feet is none other than her new employer.

Or is it Lady Irresistible?

Phillip Mansfield reluctantly agrees to let the fiery Lady Eva oversee his luxury hotel project while vowing to keep their relationship strictly professional. Yet Eva is more capable—and more alluring—than Phillip first thought, and he cannot keep from drawing up a plan of his own to seduce her.

When a series of onsite “accidents” makes it clear someone wants Lady Unlucky to earn her nickname, Phillip discovers he’s willing to do anything to protect her—even if it requires a scandalous deal…

My Thoughts:

We have a Lady Architect and a very wealthy New Yorker as the main characters in this well written and engrossing Gilded Age Romance by Joanna Shupe.

I enjoyed the interaction between this pair with there being a wonderful flow to the story and also some exasperating moments.

This well written book has a can’t put it downess that makes it one for my keeper shelf.

I gave it 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a 4 of 5 flame rating for sensuality. The intimate scenes are very sensual.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher through Edelweiss to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

About the Book:

Katie Capwell is a bright and accomplished recent law school graduate, and she has her shiny future all mapped out. It’s brimming with courtroom victories and creating change. Ryan Brincatt is a tattooed and impossibly cool martial artist, and he’s mastered a fierce roundhouse kick.
Their paths never should have crossed.
But when Katie lurks outside the kickboxing gym where Ryan works as a trainer, she’s immediately drawn to his casual confidence and playful green eyes. Without making her usual list of pros and cons, she impulsively signs up to train with him.
She never imagined that one decision would change. Absolutely. Everything.

Following the marriages of three of her siblings, Polly Harrington can hardly wait to have a Season of her own in the hopes of finding the romance she’s always dreamt of. When the Earl of Yardley charms her with good looks and attentions, she ignores all warnings to stay away.

After losing his heart years ago, Lord Sebastian Taylor is determined to never marry again. Instead, he spends his time on his estate and assisting the constabulary with cases involving the nobility. When he learns of Lord Yardley’s scheme to ruin a young woman of the ton, he cannot stand idly by.

As he sets out to protect Lady Polly, Sebastian tries to deny his growing attraction to her, while Polly is confused by her feelings toward the stubborn man. Can they see beyond past hurts and their differences to find happiness with one another?

Publisher’s Description:

Dashing dukes with attitudes and kind hearts. Engaging earls with quick wits and empty pockets. Lovely ladies who want to find love. Social climbing, lavish lifestyles, and true love. You’ll find all of this, and much more in this huge boxed set.

The Duke’s Heart
Dorothea is content with her life as a governess. She lives on a manor in the countryside and the distance from the city suits her well. She loves her charges and her employer is understanding and kind. What more could a poor vicar’s daughter need?

The Marriage Arrangement
Damien is quite happy that his future wife is such a beautiful girl. What he doesn’t like is the condition she places on their marriage. He hadn’t planned to give up his womanizing ways, yet now he wondered about that logic.

The Baronet’s Daughters
Sophia and Elise Richmond need to marry well. They come from modest wealth, but their father is trying to look out for them. They aren’t in line for any inheritance, so the perfect marriage for the girls will involve money. The sisters did want to marry, but they both wanted to marry for love. Neither would settle for less.

To Marry for Love
Viviana has met the man of her dreams. He is perfect in every way. Gwendolyn, her overprotective guardian, disagrees. Viviana is forbidden to see Nicholas again. She wants to ignore the directive, but she hears that he has taken up with another woman.

Rival Cousins
Louisa’s family has had a run of bad luck. Her widowed mother sends her to stay with her aunt and cousins. She’s fitting in well with everyone, except her haughty cousin, Caroline. It seems like all the issues will blow over or be ignored. Until the man Caroline has her eye on notices Louisa.

Falling for a Second Son
Charlotte Fraser was finding the season uninspiring. She knew the importance of marrying well, but she worried that her father might force her to marry someone she didn’t even like for all the wrong reasons. But she wanted to marry for love. Only love.

The Earl’s Choice
Julia Powell is in mourning. She’s lost her husband-to-be and she’s trying to enter society again. It’s time. She meets the dashing Lord of Loxingham and she’s taken with him. It seems as if he’s intrigued by her, as well.

The Jilted Earl
Isabella was entering her third season and was growing more than tired of the process. It wasn’t that she didn’t want a husband, she just hated the crowds and false joy of the parties. And then when she finally met a man she knew she could love, he was quickly taken by another. She knew she was unremarkable compared to the other young women in society, but she still managed some hope that she would marry for love.

The Earl’s Unconventional Bride
Lady Amelia Grey is smart. This isn’t typical of the women in her circle. She’s not satisfied with the men she meets. They all want silly, uninformed women who take them at their word. Her mother is constantly reprimanding her for reading too much and developing too many opinions.

Their Second Chance
Emily Haddington had not recovered from the heartbreak and embarrassment of being jilted by the man of her dreams. She was the daughter of a clergyman and marrying the wealthy, handsome, and desirable Hugh Warren. She could not wait to be his wife!

The Captain’s Lost Love
Anna-Maria and Captain Laurence have a past. A past that she remembers fondly every day. Back then, she naively believed that he would choose her for his very own, but that hadn’t happened. Why would the son of a duke marry a lowly tenant farmer’s daughter, anyway?

The rest of the titles in the set are:
Changing the Earl’s Plans
A Rogue’s Transformation
The Duke’s Big Surprise
All She Wanted
A Lady’s True Fortune
The Duke’s Happy Holiday
The Earl’s Yuletide Surprise
The Earl’s Christmas Spirit

Publisher’s Description:

Charity Greves has the gift of healing. So when a naked bleeding Highlander materializes out of the air into her kitchen, she does what any rational free-thinking herbalist under the same circumstances would do–she heals him. She didn’t expect to be drawn back to the 13th Century where a dangerous whacked-out witch holds the handsome Highlander captive.

Nor is she prepared to be drawn so strongly to him that she’ll do whatever it takes to save him.

Imprisoned by the witch, Toren Limont the High Sorcerer and Protector of the Fae’s magic, uses the last of his magical reserves to go forward in time and find a healer the witch doesn’t have any influence over. He merely seeks the small respite a healing can give him in order to continue to withstand the witch’s tortures long enough for his clan and siblings to flee.

Until Charity falls with him through time as either his salvation or his entire clan’s downfall.
