Review of The Bride Who Got Lucky Janna MacGregor

Nicholas St. Mauer is the heir to a Dukedom that he wants nothing to do with.  He hasn't seen his father since he was 15 and was told by his father that he never wanted anything to do with him from then on.
From that point in his life, he vowed that he would never ask his father for anything ever and will make a fortune larger than his father. His friendship with Alex the Marquess of Pembrooke (The hero from the first book in the Series, "The Bad Luck Bride') is the only bright spot in his life, besides his businesses that have made him a very rich man.

Lady Emma Cavensham is a young lady on a mission.  She is determined to help young woman who has no one to turn to when they are at the mercy of an unscrupulous abusive man or in financial straits because of the laws of the land that do not allow a woman to control their own lives and money. She is mourning the death of a friend who was killed by her husband and is getting away with it because he is a Lord.  She will stop at nothing to bring him to justice. Emma decides to travel to her friend's town to find evidence to convict the murderer.

Nick finds out about what Emma is up to and follows her to keep her from getting hurt and being caught in a scandal.  Emma has no intention of ever getting married and putting herself under any man's control.  She wants to be an independent woman who will help other women by opening a bank just for woman so they will have the option to take control of their own lives.

This is a lovely emotional charged story of two people who believe that they are better single and concentrating on their individual goals for their lives.  Nick doesn't let anyone in.  He has always kept his feelings locked up so no one can hurt him.  Emma is afraid to lose her independence and her goal to help other women.

Janna writes a deeply touching tale of a love that will test Emma's and Nick's convictions that have made them who they are.  They are both stubborn and convinced that they are right.  Only when they are in danger of losing each other will they realize that they will only be truly happy together.

This book is a wonderful journey of discovery that will make you laugh and cry.  Janna is a truly gifted author whose writing is addictive.  Her characters are compelling, complex, and lovable.  This is a book that you will love.  I cannot wait for the next one in the Series.
