The Luck of the Bride: The Cavensham Heiresses by [MacGregor, Janna]
Can a woman who’s down on her luck find love with a dashing Duke-to-be? Find out in The Luck of the Bride, the next Regency romance in the Cavensham Heiresses series from Janna MacGregor.

She's leaving nothing up to chance. Not even love…
March Lawson is an orphan who, for the past eight years, has struggled to raise her siblings on a meager allowance. Most women March's age would be picking out ball gowns for the upcoming season. But March's focus is not on finding a husband. First, she must devote her energies to just one man: the coldhearted skinflint who refuses to release her inheritance.
Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin, is not a heartless man. When he learns that Miss Lawson has been forging his name to procure funds, he can't bring himself to have her arrested—not when the bold-faced embezzler is so enchantingly beautiful. Instead, McCalpin agrees to visit her home to assess the situation more closely. March has no choice but to accept. But how can she manage the handsome trustee who controls her purse strings—when he tugs at her heart strings as well?

I liked both of the main characters but I have to give extra credit to March for her perseverance and love of her family.  She was just a teenager when she stepped up and took on huge responsibilities that she was not prepared for.  But it was all about survival.  

Michael did what he did to survive although it was in a totally different way.  Although it was somewhat different for him because he had a loving family to help and didn't have to wonder where his next meal was coming from.  He did have a secret that he found humiliating but you can see in the story that it made him more understanding of some people's flaws.  It also caused him to develop other strengths that had helped others and himself.  His brother, mother and father were also people who added to the story.

I enjoyed March's brother and sisters and how close she was to them.  She practically raised her brother like he was her own child.  She was the only mother that he knew because he was a year old when their parents died. 

I was happy to see as it got towards the end of the book I started to see more action and things got more interesting for me.  When her cousin Rupert publicly humiliated her at a ball that's when it all hits the fan more.  And things start to get more intense.  

I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley and this is my honest opinion of it.
