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 dramatic Prologue shattered my heart and I was heartbroken for Nicholas. It is hard to imagine how anyone can treat a child the way he was treated. But it was a genius move on the authors part to draw this reader into the plot of the book.

Emma and Nicholas, the primary characters, were very robust and multi-faceted but at times I was frustrated with both Emma and Nicholas for being so tunnel visioned in their beliefs. The author handles this delicate area with finesse and the reader will be rewarded with the display of many emotions and the cracking of their individual hardheadedness and stiff beliefs.

Claire and Alex from The Bad Luck Bride book 1 of the The Cavensham Heiresses series play an important role in this book and it was lovely seeing how their life evolved years later. Their assistance for both of the primary characters created the additional meat to this story.

This book is full of beliefs and values that form who Emma and Nicholas are deep down to their core. It doesn't stop there though. The author takes the reader further into the story creating the question; "When does one beliefs become an obsession that is more detrimental than life preserving?"

At the end of the book the readers will see that sometime forgiveness is the greatest reward one can have or give. That money and integrity are not enough for happiness. 

This book deserves a healthy 4.5 STARS because of the authors ability to hit woman's rights, abuse, revenge, forgiveness and love in a meaningful manner.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

My Reviews Of The Cavensham Heiresses Series

The Bad Luck Bride #1 ~ My Review Buy at Amazon
The Bride Who got Lucky #2 ~ My Review Buy at Amazon 

Janna MacGregor was born and raised in the bootheel of Missouri. She credits her darling mom for introducing her to the happily-ever-after world of romance novels. Janna writes stories where compelling and powerful heroines meet and fall in love with their equally matched heroes. She is the mother of triplets and lives in Kansas City with her very own dashing rogue, and two smug, but not surprisingly, perfect pugs. She loves to hear from readers. The Bad Luck Bride is her first novel.
