March Lawson has never had much luck, and in a desperate move to save her family, she’s been posing as the Marquess of McCalpin. But when she’s summoned to a meeting with the Marquess himself, March expects jail time…not to be bewitched by dark hair and sapphire eyes.

Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin and heir to the Duke of Langham, finds himself drawn to March despite the judgments from his peers. He isn’t sure he can trust March, especially since Michael has a secret that could ruin him and his family.

But society conspires to keep March and Michael apart, and when March is accused of not being who she says she is, will Michael toss her aside or fight for the woman he’s come to love?

Happy Birthday day to ME, Happy Birthday to ME, Happy Birthday dear WHITNEEEEEEEE! Happy Birthday to ME!
I couldn’t ask for a better birthday. There are so many new releases that I am looking forward to this month. The weather is perfect, warm but rainy and the flowers are blooming! Maybe turning 30 won’t be as bad I thought?
Today is the RELEASE of The Luck of the Bride. I was fortunate enough to receive the first two books of this series from the author and a book tour BUT I was also able to snag this beauty on NetGalley. Isn’t the cover GORGEOUS? And can I just say that it was everything I hoped it would be? Janna did another fantastic job of pulling me immediately into the story. The world and characters that have been created are so easy to fall in love with.  I honestly couldn’t put it down.
This book I felt focused more on family. In the other books you realize that family is important but this one you get the feel of how much Miss March has sacrificed for her family. When her parents die and she is left in charge until her baby brother grows into his Viscountcy, she gives up all of her dreams and focuses on her siblings. .. until the money is gone and the only money to be had is their dowries, which she can not touch. Or maybe she can, if she is okay with breaking the law and forging some documents. Maybe no one will notice? WRONG. He does notice. .. and then he notices EVERYTHING. He sees the poverty and all she has sacrificed and falls just a little bit in love with her. After Micheal takes the Lawson family under his wing things seem to be looking up until circumstances force Micheal and March to be honest and vulnerable with each other and they might not be able to do that. Or can they?
Like I said, I loved this story. March is a very strong young lady. She is brilliant with numbers and always looked after her family. The loss and struggle just had your heart breaking and the hope that Micheal would be able to trust her and take care of her just kept you reading till the very end.
I saw that there is another Cavensham Heiress book coming out in December and I am looking forward to it! I recommend this series! If you love a good romance, complete with deep and moving characters and a little bit of hot and steamy then read the first two books and then this one! I loved it!

ANNOUNCEMENT: MAY BOOK CLUB PICK IS….

ALEX & ELIZA by Melissa De La Cruz

 I am so excited this is our pick! I have already read it BUT I wanted to reread since the sequel Love & War comes out soon! Here is the synopsis:
Their romance shaped a nation. The rest was history.

1777. Albany, New York.

As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters—Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival that of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball.

Still, she can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can’t believe his luck—as an orphan, and a bastard one at that—to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.
