Lady Emma Cavensham refuses to bow to men or marriage, especially since no one will listen to her about women's rights after her best friend is murdered by her abusive husband. When Emma travels to gather the evidence needed to bring the killer to justice, she is caught in a compromising position with Nicholas St. Mauer, the reclusive Earl of Somerton, and the husband-averse lady is forced to marry the wife-averse earl.
Scared from a public humiliation as a young man, Nicholas only cares about amassing enough wealth to surpass his father. But Lady Emma is proving to be a pleasant complication. Just when Emma and Nicholas think they have love and marriage all worked out, their plans collide, putting them at odds with each other. Will their love be worth more than their ambitions?
In the second Cavensham Heiresses book, Janna MacGregor takes listeners on a fun, romantic ride with a quiet, sexy lord who meets his match in a woman far ahead of her time.

The dramatic Prologue shattered my heart
Narrator - 3.5 STARS
Narrator Rosalyn Landor does a fine job of narrating but I would have liked her to talk a little faster. I tried changing the speed of the narration in the application but it went too fast then. The differentiation between male and female characters though good were a little distracting for me. I needed the line between them more defined. None of this took away from the audible book but compared to reading the book it did stand out in my mind as a slight bother.
Book Plot - 4.5 STARS
The dramatic Prologue shattered my heart and I was heartbroken for Nicholas. It is hard to imagine how anyone can treat a child the way he was treated. But it was a genius move on the authors part to draw this reader into the plot of the book.
Emma and Nicholas, the primary characters, were very robust and multi-faceted but at times I was frustrated with both Emma and Nicholas for being so tunnel visioned in their beliefs. The author handles this delicate area with finesse and the reader will be rewarded with the display of many emotions and the cracking of their individual hardheadedness and stiff beliefs.
Claire and Alex from The Bad Luck Bride book 1 of the The Cavensham Heiresses series play an important role in this book and it was lovely seeing how their life evolved years later. Their assistance for both of the primary characters created the additional meat to this story.
This book is full of beliefs and values that form who Emma and Nicholas are deep down to their core. It doesn't stop there though. The author takes the reader further into the story creating the question; "When does one beliefs become an obsession that is more detrimental than life preserving?"
At the end of the book the readers will see that sometime forgiveness is the greatest reward one can have or give. That money and integrity are not enough for happiness.
This book deserves a healthy 4.5 STARS because of the authors ability to hit woman's rights, abuse, revenge, forgiveness and love in a meaningful manner.
