Summary

Lady Ella Myerston knows of the danger that haunts her brother, and she intends to put an end to it. While visiting her friend Brook, the true owner of the Fire Eyes diamonds, Ella accidentally gets entangled in an attempt to blackmail the dashing, newly reformed Lord Cayton. Will she become the next casualty of the alleged curse?

Lady Ella Myerston can always find a reason to smile - even if it's just in hope that tomorrow will be better than today. All her life everyone has tried to protect her from the realities of the world, but Ella knows very well the danger that has haunted her brother and their friend, and she won't wait for it to strike again. She intends to take action, and if that happens to involve an adventurous trip to the Cotswolds, then so much the better.

Lord Cayton has already broken two hearts, including that of his first wife, who died before he could convince himself to love her. Now he's determined to live a better life. But that proves complicated when old friends arrive on the scene and try to threaten him into a life of crime. He does his best to remove the intriguing Lady Ella from danger, but the stubborn girl won't budge. How else can he redeem himself, though, but by saving her - and his daughter - from those dangerous people who seem ready to destroy them all?

Amazing

I grew up reading Grace Livingston Hill, even though she was from a generation 40 years ahead of head me. My grandmother introduced her to me.
Roseanna M White is a Ms Hill for the current generation. Full of faith, Gods love, fun, mystery and true love between a man and woman.
I have loved every book I’ve read so far.
Liz Pearce is one of the best narrators I’ve heard. Her tonal inflections and abilities to give the characters different voices the same familiarity in every book is wonderful
Thank you.

Incredible Series Ending

Would you consider the audio edition of A Lady Unrivaled to be better than the print version?

While I haven't read the text completely, I did listen to the entire audio edition. I love the way the narration immerses me in the story. At times, I would listen to the audio while reading the text. I would have to say that the audio edition is every bit as good as the print version and for me just a little bit better.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I adored Lady Ella. She was so overly positive that her few moments of irritation and frustration were very entertaining.

What does Liz Pearce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Liz Pearce gives each character a unique voice and I love her accents. Since so many of the characters have distinct accents, it made it all the more enjoyable.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed aloud many times while listening to this audio edition. I also found myself wanting to yell at the characters when they were being particularly dense or obtuse.

Any additional comments?

Such a wonderful audio edition. I only wish that Recorded Books had created an audio edition of the second book in this series - The Reluctant Duchess. That is the only flaw. We have the first (The Lost Heiress) and the third (Lady Unrivaled) books, but not the second book in the series.

This wrapped it up!

I loved getting to know Cayton and Ella better. As well as all the little ones, some newcomers, and some more beloved servants.
One of the things I loved best about this particular installment of this Ladies of the Manor series is the redemption of so many hearts, souls, & lives. Things were not always as they seemed, and Roseanna M. White wrote those revelations convincingly.
Liz Pearce, the narrator, has impressed her name upon my memory due to her incredible performance throughout this series, though I did find myself confused a few times in this story as to whom was speaking. It is no wonder, though, with so many characters converging from all 3 stories, and some Russian added to the mix!
All in all, I enjoyed this series. This final installment was not my favorite, due to the necessary evils, but there could have been many more & I'm thankful for all the good that prevailed!
I will gladly read any and all novels crafted by Roseanna M. White! (I especially love A Heart's Revolution, and the Culper Ring Series!)

Wonderful story, wonderful series!

In this book and the other two in the series the author has woven together deep characters,intrigue,romance,history and a wonderful story. The three stories together would make a great mini series! Enjoyed very much and the narration is excellent.

Loved it! Loved the whole series.

This series was one of my very favorites. Loved the storyline and characters. The narrator is amazing. So many accents and the voices she used for the men were better than most other narrators. Wish the series wasn't over.

Storyline was NOT supported by intelligence

So as audiences we are to believe everyone was so afraid of one man and his accomplice that they were crippled by fear? Really? When we have two Dukes and an Earl? The entire premise was not supported by logic and hence it made the hero and the Duke appear as weak men. The logic was definitely in short order and I am sorry I got as far into the story as I did hoping it would turn around for the better. Do NOT waist your time with this story.
