About The Bride Who Got Lucky

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 who 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.

My Thoughts

I fell in love with this beautiful historical romance with two main characters that you have never quite seen the likes of before.

Emma is not like the other young women in her time. She is fiercely independent and feels no need for marriage. She loves her life the way it is, with no man telling her what she can or can not do nor controlling her finances. Her views are cemented when her closest friend passes away – which she does not feel was due to natural causes. Instead she feels the death lays at the hands of her best friend’s husband. In a time when women were viewed as property and allowed to be beaten as punishment, she may just be right. Emma carries guilt over not protecting her friend and vows to uncover the secrets and bring justice for her.

Nick is a young man whose childhood has influenced his adulthood. His Father was cold and cruel and is a man who Nick refuses to be like. His Father cuts him off from the family wealth and Nick’s main goal in life is to gain more wealth than his Father.

These two very opposite and independent individuals are drawn together over the death of Lena, Emma’s best friend. There is a lot of attraction between the two of them but neither can really let go of their own goals – Nick to gain wealth and Emma to bring justice, equality and fairness to all women.

This is a beautiful romance novel that is very well written. I loved the very different plot with our female character being so different than many characters during this time period. She draws attention to the plight of women and really helps drive home how far we have come as women in equality. This is a definite must read!

You can purchase a copy of this book on Amazon.
