The Cavensham Heiresses Series by Janna MacGregor

November 2018




I was contacted to review Janna MacGregor's first story in her Cavensham Heiresses series. The title, The Bad Luck Bride intrigued me, as did the story, so I accepted. I am so glad that I did.

I loved the characters, both the main couple and so many intriguing secondary ones. I wanted each to have their own story. Even more impressive was the emotion Ms MacGregor infused from cover to cover.

This month, the fourth book in the series, The Good, The Bad, and The Duke is released. I have asked Ms. MacGregor if I could ask each of the heroines of her first three novels a question. She graciously agreed to contact the three ladies. Below is her reply with their answers. Ms MacGregor has also offered a prize. Just be a member of my newsletter as of Nov 30. Winner will be pulled Dec 1 or later from members as of Nov 30.

3 Q&A

Reply from Ms MacGregor: Okay, these are some pretty tough questions, but I managed to track Lady Claire Pembrooke, Lady Emma Somerton, and Lady March McCalpin down. They invited me to a lovely tea at Langham Hall. It was a completely informal affair, but they were delighted that their readers wanted to know more.

KRC: How lovely to have had tea with these amazing women. I should have thought to ask if maybe I could have met them for this interview... maybe next time. We do have their answers to my questions. The first was for Lady Claire Pembrooke, heroine of The Bad Luck Bride. She may have been a cousin to Emma, Michael and William, but it is obvious that she is as close as a sibling. How did she adjust from being an only child to being part of such a boisterous clan as those three must have been as children?

Reply from Clare: Claire tucked her napkin neatly in her lap, then gently placed her tea cup on the matching saucer. "It wasn't that difficult as I'd always wanted to have brothers and sisters. However, I will tell you that as a child, it was a little overwhelming at times. When the teasing and the boys' boisterous play became too much, my Aunt Ginny made certain that I had an oasis to retreat to when I needed it." She gave a smile of contentment. "Not that I'm shy, but I am more reserved than the other Cavenshams. My aunt had a special sitting room created just for me in an alcove of the library. Of course, Emma would always join me. Even as a child, she loved to read." Her gaze turned serious. "But at other times, I craved the love and conversation that were so unique in our family. All of it was created by my Uncle Sebastian and Aunt Ginny. I was lucky to have them when I was growing up."

KRC: She is so lucky to have such an amazing family. And of course her cousin Emma is Lady Emma Somerton, the heroine of The Bride Who Got Lucky from whom I wanted to know as a woman determined to help other women stand on their own, what is the most important piece of advice she could offer another woman? Any advice she would offer a man?

Reply from Emma: "Hmm." She tapped her chin with her index finger. "Let me think. Oh, I know." She leaned close and lowered her voice. "Women need to know their own strengths and not be afraid to show the world their talents, even if it intimidates a man. Only men who appreciate a talented and self-sufficient woman should garner your interests. They'll support your endeavors because they believe in you and your success." She leaned back with a knowing smile on her lips. "My advice to men is simple. Marry a woman who loves to read. She'll not only be intelligent, but in all ways that are important, she'll be your equal."

KRC: Excellent advice. And the perfect segue for the final heroine, Lady March McCalpin, who meets her hero, Michael Cavensham, in The Luck of the Bride. She has proven to be very adept to succeeding in whatever she has put her mind to, both with academics and the workings of the estate. I wanted to know which did she find more difficult to master? Mathematics or Sheep Shearing?

Reply from March: "Oh, that's an easy question to answer." She straightened her shoulders. "Sheep shearing. I'm proud to say that I'm quite quick at the task. It makes it easier on both the sheep and me. But when it rains?" She shook her head. "The little buggers slip right through my hands." Claire and Emma joined March in her laughter. After the giggles grew quiet, March continued, "However, I do find differential equations a little bit of a challenge at times. If only there was a way to erase your work. I hate to waste paper."

KRC: And that concludes my 3 Q&A for November. I'm now glad that I didn't send a question for Lady Daphne Hallworth, heroine of the next story The Good, The Bad, and the Duke. Perhaps I'll be able to ask to meet her for tea myself!

Boy Meets Girl, They Fall in Love, and the two of them live Happily Ever After. This is the content for any book I believe is a true Romance Genre novel. The books that I recommend, or have reviews posted for will follow that format, unless I note otherwise. Granted we may know the outcome of a Romance Genre Novel, but it is the journey the characters take that is the reason we read these books. The Happily Ever After doesn't mean they're all vampires... Just means that the future is open to them, even if it is set 500 years in the past - we don't need to know their final chapter in life. At times I have have Recommend Reads by visitors to this site - I cannot guarantee that they meet my criteria for a Romance Genre Novel.
