March Lawson has never had much luck, and in a desperate move to save her family, she’s been posing as the Marquess of McCalpin. But when she’s summoned to a meeting with the Marquess himself, March expects jail time…not to be bewitched by dark hair and sapphire eyes.
Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin and heir to the Duke of Langham, finds himself drawn to March despite the judgments from his peers. He isn’t sure he can trust March, especially since Michael has a secret that could ruin him and his family.
But society conspires to keep March and Michael apart, and when March is accused of not being who she says she is, will Michael toss her aside or fight for the woman he’s come to love?
Title: The Luck of the Bride
Series: The Cavensham Heiresses #3
Author: Janna MacGregor
Genre: Regency Romance
Published: May 1, 2018
Publisher: St. Martins Press
My Rating: 4 stars
A dire and desperate situation often calls for desperate and perhaps even deceitful actions. Yet when, for no known reason, the funds that their guardian was supposed to be managing and dispensing to her family stopped, March took matters into her own hands… or a signature that wasn’t actually hers to write. When your siblings are hungry and your home falling apart around you… well, you will do what is necessary for your family to survive even if it goes against your nature.
I enjoyed The Luck of the Bride very much. March and Michael worked well together, well, eventually. There is a definite spark between them but there are also misunderstandings, a vile villain who tries to ruin March, and some moments when Michael’s hero halo slipped quite a bit. There was also all the drama, balls, political action and the beauty of the time period as well. I had fun stepping back into the world of the Cavensham Heiresses once again. If you enjoy Historical or Regency Romance then I believe you’d enjoy this tale. Although I’ll always suggest reading a series from the beginning, if you cannot then The Luck of the Bride can be read on its own without confusion.
