    Historical Romance

    March Lawson’s life changed in the blink of an eye. With both of her parents dead she, at the age of sixteen, had to take charge of her one year old brother as well as sisters who were ten and eleven. With a guardian unwilling or unable to do the job she was forced to scrimp, save and work hard to keep the roof over her siblings’ heads and food in their bellies. With the help of two staunch friends a bit older she did her best and then had to resort to a bit of forgery to keep caring for her family. When a new guardian is named his interest in the family is equally disdainful until someone brings to his attention the fact someone might be stealing funds from the March family’s coffers. So, off he goes to check things out and then the story truly begins. Finally feeling somewhat secure, settling into a safe haven, having enough food in their bellies and being truly happy the March family relaxes and enjoys. Little does March know that her life will not be smooth sailing and there will be rough seas to flounder through before she is able to have a HEA with the man she falls in love with. This story tells of family love, caring and sharing. There is an evil relative that causes trouble and needs to be dealt with. The hero has difficulty with numbers floating around and not taking shape so when embezzling occurs he is at a bit of a loss and rather defensive. There are secrets and lies and mean-spirited people but also there is warmth and camaraderie and so much more. I was rather frustrated with Michael a time or two but he did make things right in the end and there was a HEA for him and March and also her family. It was nice to catch up with the couples from the first two books in the series and I now wonder who will star in book four. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    Luck of the Bride

    I totally enjoyed reading The Luck of the Bride by Janna MacGregor, book 3 in her Cavensham Heiresses series. I will warn that I needed the tissue box close by while reading this wonderful story. March Lawson did not deserve all the struggles or neglect that she had to deal with during the eight years since losing her parents. From the time she was seventeen, March raised her siblings on a meager, if not underfunded, allowance; this meant no debut season or searching for a husband. All of her energy was spent on the coldhearted skinflint who would not release her inheritance. Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin, was really not a heartless man, more likely unaware of his duties to the Lawsons. Michael is surprised to learn that the beautiful March has been forging his name to access funds from her trust. Instead of having her arrested he decides to visit her home to assess the situation more closely. The demands on March have made her a strong and resilient woman. The love and care she gave to her siblings was evidenced in the way they handled themselves as well as how the ton received them. McCalpin was an intelligent man with a secret; he could not handle or deal with numbers. Fortunately for him his younger brother assisted him with this duty. March was the perfect match for him as she was a whiz at numbers. I loved the flirting and conversations by these two. McCalpin was attracted to March but he also respected her, which is so important in a relationship. I loved how he took over guardianship of the Lawson children and provided for them to live the life they deserved. Michael’s parents were also wonderful with assisting him in helping the Lawson girls enter London society. This couple was also helpful in bringing March and Michael together in the end. The one person I disliked immensely was the Lawson’s cousin Rupert. He was cruel to one of March’s sisters and wanted to marry the other in order to get his hands on their money. I couldn’t understand why his family did not offer help to March once her parents died. This book was quite enjoyable and I had trouble putting it down. Ms. MacGregor wrote a wonderful story which drew me in, making me forget the world around me and did not let me go until I turned the last page. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    A tear jerker

    It's 1:30 in the morning, my eyes are red & my nose running. I've cried through 90% of this touching tale. I couldn't stop until I'd reached the happy ending. March & her Michael have such a long hard battle to reach happily ever after. I hate to give too much away but each is flawed & desperate in their own way & perfect for each other. It's a story of loyalty to family & friends. Of doing any & everything to keep loved ones together. Of believing the worst & fighting to believe the best in yourself is true. Do yourself a favor & get your hands on this book. Read & keep a box of tissue close at hand. I'm so happy that an arc was sent my way, I might have missed this wonderful journey otherwise.

    Bennet stole the story for me!

    Closer to 3 1/2 stars. I LOVED the first 3/4 of the book. I had literal tears running down my face close to the ending. But the last 1/4 of the book, everything was rushed to be tied up. I hated how quickly one was forgiven of such a hurtful episode, things like that should have taken a bit longer to forgive instead of instant forgiveness. March was such a strong willed sister, taking care of her family from such a young age with tons of responsibility. Michael was a nice hero, although I liked his brother almost better. Bennet, I have to say, stole the story for me! Thank you NetGalley for the advanced copy to read!

    Amazing Love Story

    Sigh.. Be still my heart!! This story just wrapped around my heart and once I started I could not put it down. Janna MacGregor's well drawn characters came to life with her descriptive prose and I could actually see them in my mind. The hero Michael Caversham, heir to the Duke of Langham has a secret and has been hiding it since he was a child. He has been fortunate that his brother has stood by his side and helped him through the years. March Lawson has a secret of her own. Her family has been living hand to mouth since her parents passed away and she was left in charge of her three siblings years ago. Although there was money left in trusts, she has not been able to access the funds. She finally catches the attention of Michael as he has become her guardian and she has been breaking the law to protect her siblings. As he summons her to his home and the two meet.. Well all I can say if there are so many wonderful emotions in this story. March has only looked after her siblings for years and never thought of herself. Michael had no idea of her existence until recently. Then there is the evil cousin who hopes to gain it all. I could go on and on about this story because I loved it so much. But I do not want to give it all away and I know you will feel the same!! This is the first story in this series I have read and it can be read as a standalone. But trust me, I intend to go back and read everything this author has written. It was that amazing. Yes, yes it was...
