A Lady Unrivaled by Roseanna M. White
Back Cover: Lady Ella Myerston can always find a reason to smile–even if it’s just in hope that tomorrow will be better than today. All her life everyone has tried to protect her from the realities of the world, but Ella knows very well the danger that has haunted her brother and their friend, and she won’t wait for it to strike again. She intends to take action . . . and if that happens to involve an adventurous trip to the Cotswolds, then so much the better.
Lord Cayton has already broken two hearts, including that of his first wife, who died before he could convince himself to love her. Now he’s determined to live a better life. But that proves complicated when old friends arrive on the scene and try to threaten him into a life of crime. He does his best to remove the intriguing Lady Ella from danger, but the stubborn girl won’t budge. How else can he redeem himself, though, but by saving her–and his daughter–from those dangerous people who seem ready to destroy them all?
My Review: I’ve heard of Roseanna M. White for awhile now, but I had never actually read any of her books until I got this one.
I used to think that I didn’t like historical romance… but then I just realized I only like good historical romance. 😉 (I’m sure you’re thinking… of course??)
This is definitely one I would classify as good.
I wasn’t sure how I felt about it at first, there were three different point of views and… I can get overwhelmed when there are too many. At first I thought they weren’t all necessary, but as the story progressed and finished– each of the characters does add something to the story, and they each grow and change during it.
A Lady Unrivaled is the third book in a trilogy. I think I would have appreciated the story more had I read the others– I still really enjoyed this one.
Ms. White wrote an engaging and original story with romance and mystery. The characters were real (and I especially liked Ella) and the story while I wouldn’t say it was suspenseful (the whole time) it certainly kept my interest.
I would give this book five out of five stars. And I look forward to what book of hers I might pick up next!
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
