He would do anything to protect her. Even marry her…
The son of a cold-hearted duke, Nicholas St. Mauer isn’t one to involve himself in society…or open his own heart to anyone. But driven by honor, the reclusive Earl of Somerton feels obliged to keep a watchful eye on Lady Emma Cavensham. She possesses a penchant for passions unbecoming a woman that finds Nick in constant peril of losing his well-structured solitude. She even dared kiss Nick once—an utterly unladylike, and delightful, lapse…
Emma can’t deny the appeal of the earl’s attention, and occasional affection, but she has no need for a man. There are worse fates than spinsterhood, as Emma knows too well. She still mourns the loss of her dear friend Lena, and is determined to prove Lena’s husband responsible for her death before he lures another innocent woman into a brutal marriage. But as Emma pursues her prey, a compromising moment upends all her plans. Now, with gossip swirling and her reputation in tatters, Nick may be the only man brave enough to join in Emma’s cause. . .and fight for her heart.
The Bride Who Got Lucky is a sweeping Regency romance from Janna MacGregor in her Cavensham Heiresses series.
Praise for Janna MacGregor’s THE BAD LUCK BRIDE
“Full-bodied romance…with intelligence and heart.”—Cathy Maxwell
“Sparkling.” —Publishers Weekly
“Will leave you swooning.”—Sabrina Jeffries
Intelligent heroine with strong beliefs meets guarded, kind hero
I received an advanced review copy of this book.
Emma, the heroine of this story, had very strong beliefs and convictions. I liked that she challenged those around her with her ideas. She was intelligent and was knowledgeable as a result of her interest in books. At times though, for someone who seemed aware of the world and her position in society, she took actions that put all of that in jeopardy. Her behavior sometimes seemed naive and immature for someone as intelligent as she came across.
Nick, the hero, guards his heart and avoids getting close to anyone. Despite trying to keep himself isolated, his kindness and caring comes through in his interactions with others. He wrestled with himself in certain situations and I liked that he would think things through and was willing to change.
I enjoyed this story. This is the second book of the series but it is a standalone book.
Mesmerizing & Exhilaration!
This is the first story of Janna MacGregor’s that I have read and I can’t wait to dive in and read the rest. There is so much going on in this book. Ms. MacGregor has created complex characters with such distinct personalities. Her writing manages to bring you right into the scene with the characters. Her descriptive use of the language make each scene very realistic and the emotions the characters are feeling believable. I couldn’t put this down. I found myself so entranced by the passion and beliefs of these characters that it was exhilarating to read. Loved how the author dealt with issues of this time, expressing vulnerability and emotion as well as passion. This was so much more than a historical romance and I felt truly blessed to read this Fantastic story! This is a must read! Loved it!
I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
