Publisher’s Description:

Can a woman who’s down on her luck find love with a dashing Duke-to-be?

Find out in The Luck of the Bride, the next Regency romance in the Cavensham Heiresses series from Janna MacGregor.

She’s leaving nothing up to chance. Not even love…

March Lawson is an orphan who, for the past eight years, has struggled to raise her siblings on a meager allowance. Most women March’s age would be picking out ball gowns for the upcoming season. But March’s focus is not on finding a husband. First, she must devote her energies to just one man: the coldhearted skinflint who refuses to release her inheritance.

Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin, is not a heartless man. When he learns that Miss Lawson has been forging his name to procure funds, he can’t bring himself to have her arrested—not when the bold-faced embezzler is so enchantingly beautiful. Instead, McCalpin agrees to visit her home to assess the situation more closely. March has no choice but to accept. But how can she manage the handsome trustee who controls her purse strings—when he tugs at her heart strings as well?

 

 

My Thoughts:

This is book number three of The Cavensham Heiresses series.
I never read book #1 but I did read Book #2 and found it to be mediocre at best. This one, however blew me out of the water. I couldn’t put it down. Having not read the first book I can’t label this one as the best one of this series, but it is the best one that I have read. It was a pleasurable and heart wrenching tale from the prologue on.

I only put it aside for brief breaks for meals and other necessities. I wanted to know what would happen next!

Struggle is the only thing March Lawson has known since the death of both of her parents. The oldest of four children the raising and care of her two sisters and baby brother have been left to her. With uncaring guardians and people in charge of their monies, how are they to survive?

Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin has never even met the Lawson family. He has virtually inherited the care of their inheritance with the death of his uncle the former Marquess.

When he learns that March has been embezzling from her inheritance he can’t find it in his heart to have her arrested. Instead after seeing the state of their finances and home he brings the whole family to London to live with his family and give the young ladies a season.

Will Michael’s attraction to the forger and embezzler lead to an everlasting love or will his trust in her end badly?

I gave this sometimes humorous but mostly tear jerking romance 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. Both of the main characters appeared briefly in book #2 of this series but nothing could prepare me for their well deserved Happily Ever After.

The sensual rating I would give this book is 3 of 5 flames. The intimacy is brief but has an impact on this story.

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

Publisher’s Description:

Miss Margery Derrington and her dear aunts are in dire straits. Their discovery of a rare manuscript will hopefully stave off their creditors—if it’s worth what they hope. Margery reluctantly allies with a reclusive scholar to use the book to pursue a treasure that could solve their woes. Only, the irresistible desire she feels toward her partner is neither expected nor wanted.

Rhys Bowen can’t believe he has his hands on the elusive de Valery text. Solving its hidden code and unearthing its legendary treasure would establish him as one of Britain’s leading antiquaries, finally casting him out of his brilliant late father’s shadow. But when a centuries-old organization convinces Rhys of the perils of disturbing the past, he must choose between his conscience…and the captivating woman he’s sworn to help.
