Summary

Katherine Vareck is in for the shock of her life when she learns upon her husband Meri’s death that, before the accident, he had married two other women. And you know how the saying goes: Hell hath no fury like a woman who married a man who married two other women. Or something like that.   

Christian, Duke of Ranford and Meri’s far more upstanding brother, has no earthly clue how to be of assistance. He spent the better part of his adult years avoiding Meri and the rest of his good-for-nothing family, so to be dragged back into the fold is…unexpected. Even more so is the intrepid and beautiful Katherine, whom he cannot be falling for because he’s emotionally closed off and all that nonsense. Or can he? 

With a textile business to run and a strong, early friendship forming with Meri’s two other wives, Katherine doesn’t have time for frivolities. But there’s something about the pained and compellingly taciturn Christian that draws her to him. When an opportunity to partner on a business venture draws them even closer, they’ll have to learn to face their past fears if they’re to live and love in the present. 

Contributor Bio(s): Janna MacGregor was born and raised in the bootheel of Missouri. She is the author of the Cavensham Heiresses series, which begins with The Bad Luck Bride. Janna credits her darling mom for introducing her to the happily-ever-after world of romance novels. Janna writes stories where compelling and powerful heroines meet and fall in love with their equally matched heroes. She is the mother of triplets and lives in Kansas City with her very own dashing rogue, and two smug, but not surprisingly, perfect pugs.

Slow middle

Started well and very interesting premise, but I thought a bit tedious in the middle. The notion of a female in trade being so well thought of socially by the members of the Ton does not chime with the time - modern sensibilities. Narration was excellent - Rosalyn Landor is superb.

Enjoyed it

Good story and excellent narration. If it's a book that is performed by Rosalyn Landor it's almost guaranteed to be very good and worth the money.

Not a repeat for me

Verrry verrry slow going. Not sure if it was author’s writing or the narrator’s interpretation, but the pathos was just too much. Depressing really.

What a fun storyline

I absolutely love the plot of this story. The three widows helping each other out and working together to figure out the unfortunate situation they were is was handled with finesse.

The introduction of the men that would feature in future books to the series left this reader anticipating the next book to the series.

The narrator did an amazing job with her wide age range or male and female voices.

Good Story

This was a bit of a different Regency romance, and one that I liked. I found the main characters’ chemistry a little under-developed which is the reason for the 3-stars. The narrator is a favorite and not the reason for their lack of connection. Check out Prince Charming and see the difference in writing. Overall it’s an enjoyable read, all tied up in a neat package.

A Duke in Time!

This was a cute story! The characters were well thought out as was the story. I just found it a little too slow for me. I like stories with a bit faster pace. Rosalyn Landor is a terrific narrator!

Too long

The story felt too long and made me loose interest. Still I finished it and liked the ending. Credit to Rosalind Landor for being such an amazing narrator.
