The Bride Who Got Lucky (The Cavensham Heiresses #2) by Janna MacGregor

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Blurb:
 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.
 
 
If you have read The Bad Luck Bride, you might remember that Alex and Claire remarked on the probability of something developing between Somerton and Lady Emma. Claire was convinced that she saw something between those two whereas Alex was equally convinced that Somerton would never allow himself to get close to a woman. Well, The Bride who got Lucky might enlighten both of them, whose assessment was the more accurate...

At least, she might, when all is said and done because our hero and our heroine being as opposed to marriage as they are, both of them with good reason and due to their personal experiences, do not exactly have a smooth trip when they're trying to navigate the marital seas. Their courtship, if you could even call it one, is overshadowed by Emma's loss of a good friend, bad decisions, adversaries and the everpresent rumours of the ton. Considering the fact that, originally at least, none of them was even in the market for a spouse, well, things tend to change and to change fast, when love comes along.

I already loved Emma's family, the Cavenshams after everything they have done for Claire and how much they protected her at all costs at the time when she was The Bad Luck Bride. You can always feel that this is a family whose members care deeply for each other and who protect their own. Once again they prove how amazing they are, even if the Duke and his wife are getting a bit upset sometimes, in this book and, well, looking at Somerton and his lack of a loving and caring family, you can but be very happy to see him become a part of this close-knit family.

I also loved that Emma was not just talking about the injustice of the way women were treated and what rights they had, her attempts at getting justice for the death of her friend in a man's world but that she was also doing something about it and that her family was backing her up.
I already said that I loved this family, right?

Well written with lots of action, wit, and a well-plotted story, I really enjoyed reading this book and can definitely recommend it!
