Katherine Vareck is in for the shock of her life when she learns upon her husband Meri’s accidental death that he had married two other women. Her entire business, along with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be a royal supplier, is everything she’s been working for and now could be destroyed if word leaks about the three wives.
Meri’s far more upstanding brother, Christian, Duke of Randford 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…problematic. Even more so is the intrepid and beautiful Katherine, whom he cannot be falling for because she’s Meri’s widow. Or can he?
With a textile business to run and a strong friendship forming with Meri’s two other wives, Katherine doesn’t have time for much else. But there’s something about the warm, but compellingly taciturn Christian that draws her to him. When an opportunity to partner in a business venture brings them even closer, they’ll have to face

Hello all my loves! It has been such a long time. What a weird feeling to physically not be able to read! My last pregnancy made me so nauseous any time I tried to read book. I had a sweet baby girl, who is my 4th. I’m pretty good at making cute little girl babies! Haha. Now I am trying to get back into reviewing because I genuinely like to share what I have been reading.
I was SUPER excited to hear that Janna MacGregor is writing a new series!! This is start of The Widow Rules. I don’t know about you guys but just the name of this series has me so pumped. I have read every book in her last series, The Cavensham Heiresses, and LOVED those. If you need a good romance with amazing characters and world building I HIGHLY recommend. I almost feel bad to say, that when I saw she had a new series I was not only excited but have high expectations.
Not to worry friends… Janna totally met all my expectations. The banter back and forth between the main characters was what I dream of. A witty female lead that is going against the norms of the time to make a name for herself and a Duke that is smitten with said female and supports her dream. Along with a group of female friends that show you just how important friendship is. The world building and cast of characters are well thought out and the storyline was interesting. I can honestly say I haven’t read one like it. .. and I have read my fair share of historical romance.
Well done Janna! I look forward to the next one. You can read her Cavensham Heiresses series while you wait for the June 2021 release of this one! Happy reading friends!
