Can a woman who’s down on her luck find love with a dashing Duke-to-be? Find out in The Luck of the Bride, the next Regency romance in the Cavensham Heiresses series from Janna MacGregor. 

She's leaving nothing up to chance. Not even love…
March Lawson is an orphan who, for the past eight years, has struggled to raise her siblings on a meager allowance. Most women March's age would be picking out ball gowns for the upcoming season. But March's focus is not on finding a husband. First, she must devote her energies to just one man: the coldhearted skinflint who refuses to release her inheritance.
Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin, is not a heartless man. When he learns that Miss Lawson has been forging his name to procure funds, he can't bring himself to have her arrested—not when the bold-faced embezzler is so enchantingly beautiful. Instead, McCalpin agrees to visit her home to assess the situation more closely. March has no choice but to accept. But how can she manage the handsome trustee who controls her purse strings—when he tugs at her heart strings as well?

Vikki’s Musings

This the third book in the Cavensham Heiress series, so when I received an invitation from the publisher, via Net-Galley, I eagerly accepted since I thoroughly enjoyed the other two. I was not disappointed. This one is my favorite so far. My opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.

The Luck of the Bride is a delightful Regency romance with unforgettable charters and an intriguing plot. The pacing is excellent, fast when it needs to be and steady when I wanted to savor the emotions of the characters. It’s clear that Ms. MacGregor is well versed in this glittering period of history.

March Lawson’s character is a sweetheart. I fell in love with her from the start. She is so determined to do right by her siblings. She’s a nurturing character and wants to take care of everyone, sometimes, she does it so well, she overlooks her own wants and desires. 

The Marquess of McCalpin is a great hero, one I easily loved. He’s a big softie and is slain by March as soon as he sees her for the first time. He is a true gentleman who takes his responsibilities seriously, whether it’s for a family member or ones he inherited with his title. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the romance that quickly develops between March and Michael. One of my strongest reasons that I read historical romance is the sexual tension between the hero and the heroine, The Luck of the Bride exceeds my expectations.

If you enjoy Regency romances that allows one to enmesh themselves in that glittering world, then you will love this book as much as I. Not only are the main characters wonderful, the secondary characters are engaging as well. I fell in love with March’s brother. There is a scene early on where he tries to fire his housekeeper who is actually March because he detests beans and ham. That scene had me chuckling a lot. I can’t wait to read the next one is this great series. Happy reading!
