    The Cotswolds, Ralin Castle March 1913 Lady Ella Myerston is featured on the cover. The model beautifully captures the essence of the character, with her sneaky little smile and lovely red hair, though Ella would call it auburn (-smile). She has such a wonderful outlook on life and is very inquisitive. She chooses to find joy in the moment, be an explorer of her world, but is also fiercely protective of those she loves, as she proves by trying to unravel the mystery of the Fire Eyes diamonds in order to keep further harm from coming to her family. I really enjoyed her character from the get-go. Cayton was a bit complex, but never annoyingly. His great love of his 9 month old daughter, and his overwhelming desire to become a good and God following man for her sake were both charming and admirable. Ella does a wonderful job of breaking through his walls, and seeing past his masks. Paris, France - Kira, the prima ballerina, has made some bad choices in life, and her conscious will constantly remind her of it. However, it’s a very dangerous game she is playing at, in order to keep her Russian benefactor/boyfriend happy. In fact, so many people in this book play at being spies, certainly someone is bound to get caught, or worse. Lady Catherine, having suffered a terrible loss in book 2, is barely living, just a waif-like shadow of her former, blustery self. No longer inclined to be conniving and conspiring for the Fire Eyes with her brother, Lord Rushworth, she simply lets him steer her life. Lord Rushworth, however, has nothing else on his mind, and is quite determined to acquire them, no matter the cost, dragging his grieving sister from France, to the Cotswolds, where he believes the jewels are. It was unexpected, and fun to have three pregnant women all due at essentially the same time. Each woman shows remarkable strength and resilience when push comes to shove. While there were sad moments, they weren’t overly so. I never felt them weighing me down. There were many happy and amusing moments. And there was a bit of danger, which enhanced the story. Scriptural Reference: I was pleased to see faith beautifully woven into and throughout this story. Beginning of book, and again in Ch. 24 - “Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” –Romans 5:5 Tea Moment: Ch. 12 “The tea room wasn’t nearly as grand as the ones in London to which she was permitted to slip away unchaperoned – no orchestra, no dancing, no high-arching windows. But it was lovely, all fair, bright colors and copious amounts of light, …The waitress headed their way, wheeled cart before her and a casual smile upon her lips. Conversation halted while the girl set out their teapot and sugar and cream, the tiered tray filled to bursting with sweets. I definitely recommend this book. As the winner of a contest held by the author, I received an Advance Reading Copy for no compensation from BETHANY HOUSE PUBL. Some final edits were still in progress after I received my copy. My opinion is my own. Read: 06/10th&11th/2016 SERIES: Ladies of the Manor The Lost Heiress – Book #1 – 2015 The Reluctant Duchess – Book #2 – April 2016 A Lady Unrivaled – Book #3 – September 2016

    The Lady Unrivalled

    This was the perfect ending to this series. Roseanna obviously had done a lot of research which made the book so interesting as well as entertaining. I have loved the whole series of The Ladies of the Manor and am sorry that it has come to an end.

    A Lady Unrivaled by Roseanna White

    A Lady Unrivaled #3 Ladies of the Manor Series***** by Roseanna M. White A Lady Unrivaled is book 3 in the Ladies of the Manor Series. Set in 1913 England, The Cotswolds, Ralin Castle where Lady Ella Myerston is visiting her good friend Brook—Duchess of Stafford. Ella has very specific reasons for visiting Brook and is determined to keep her reasons to herself...for now. She had me chuckling when she was...well, sneaking around the castle to get to the massive library (ooh, what a library it is!) unnoticed. Now why would she want to get to the library unnoticed?...she—I am not saying. I love Ella's heart—full of love for her family, friends and God—overflowing on all she does, her optimism in all situations, gentleness and grace, loving and compassionate, joyfulness, ready smile and laughter, brave and oh so mischievous. I think her optimism and smiles bothered some, which may be why she is thought to be unaware of what is going on around her. However, she has chosen to find joy in all things and is far more aware of things than others realize. She is also determined to keep those she loves out of danger and from more tragedy—a danger that seems to follow the mysterious gems...the “fire eyes”. Oh so handsome James Azerly—Earl of Cayton lives not far from Ralin Castle with his nine month old daughter, Lady Adelaide—or Addie. Addie is a precious little girl that captures the hearts of those around her—she certainly captured mine. James is a complex man, his past is not one he is proud of. However he is a changed man after giving his heart and life to Jesus, he—with God's help—has changed his way of life to a godly one, but his past won't let him be and he has questions. I appreciate that we can see how he struggles with the “old” man he once was and the “new” man he is now. I love his heart, integrity, love and devotion to his daughter. I especially love the interaction between Ella and James! It was great to revisit many of the characters I fell in love with in the first two books and learn of their lives since then. Plots get more dangerous with even more daring attempts to obtain the mysterious “fire eyes”. I had my suspicions as to who actually was responsible for the evil lurking about, the escalating dangerous situations Ella, James and their loved ones found themselves in. Certain characters are not who they appear to be, to their own advantage of course. Surprise developments in the storyline, twists and turns, and unexpected dangers kept me reading—holding my breath at times, just one more chapter and then another chapter. At certain parts of the story I found myself laughing and crying at others. I appreciate the inspirational elements woven throughout the story—learning to trust ones-self and God, redemption, intrigue, forgiveness, joy, suspense, danger, love, betrayal, faith and a surprising ending. The descriptions of the era are such that I could envision the country-side, castles, walking alongside Ella as she strolls in the woods and the clothing—I felt as if I walked among the characters. I appreciate the list of characters and their relationships in the front of the book. A Lady Unrivaled is a gripping, heartwarming story that will stay with the reader—this reader at least—long after the last page. ~I received a copy of the book from the publisher, (no monetary gain were exchanged), this is my honest review~

    Third book in series!

    A Lady Unrivaled by Roseanna M. White is the third book in Ladies of the Manor series. Lady Ella Myerston wants to help her family with the matter of Fire Eyes. Lady Ella needs to find more information on the red diamonds and gets herself an invite to the Cotswold’s. Her friend has an extensive library and Lady Ella is sure she will find the information she is seeking. Her brother has always protected Ella, but now Ella wishes to help him (since his wife is expecting). Ella runs into Lord James Azerly, the Earl of Cayton. He is staying nearby with his daughter, Addie at Anlic Manor. James’ reputation proceeds him, but he has changed since the birth of daughter (and death of his wife). Unfortunately, Lady Catherine “Kitty” Pratt, her brother, Rushworth, and Kitty’s maid Kira arrive. Rushworth wants Fire Eyes and is willing to do anything to get them. Lord Pratt, Kitty’s husband, had promised them a buyer and had even taken an advance payment for the diamonds. Rushworth is pressuring James into helping him by using Lady Ella. Unknowingly (at first), Lady Ella has the red diamonds and wears them in front of Rushworth. Mayhem is sure to ensue at they try to keep the red diamonds out of Rushworth’s hands. I decided to describe the mystery and intrigue portion of the novel instead of the romance (which was very expected). I found A Lady Unrivaled to have a slower pace than the first two novels in the series. A Lady Unrivaled can be confusing if you have not read the first two books (The Lost Heiress and The Reluctant Duchess). The book does contain the requisite, predictable romance. Actually, more of the novel is devoted to the developing romance between Ella and James than to Fire Eyes. The writing is good, but I found the ending to be anticlimactic. I give A Lady Unrivaled 3.5 out of 5 stars (It was okay). I just did not think A Lady Unrivaled was as enjoyable (interesting, entertaining) as the first two books in the series. I did find the tale of Fire Eyes to be fascinating. I received a complimentary copy of A Lady Unrivaled in exchange for an honest review. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.
