Overview

From Rhonda Woodward, a writer with “sparkle and heart,” comes a beloved Signet Regency Romance—available digitally for the first time.
Luck has always eluded Celia Langston. When her parents passed away ten years ago, she had to make her own way in the world, forsaking a come-out Season in London—and any chance at marriage. But Celia, now a governess, has never been one for self-pity. Rather, at the age of six-and-twenty, she has accepted the lot Fate has dealt her—that of a spinster…
With his handsome face, reputation for bravery in the war, and princely fortune, the Duke of Severly has never suffered for want of female companionship. The crème de la crème hang on his every word. So when he takes notice of his nephews’ governess—for even the plainest of gray dresses cannot conceal her regal poise and delicious curves—Severly surprises even himself. For one, he has never admired a woman below his station, let alone a governess. For another, Celia seems to hold a grudge against him. But her rejection of him only fans the flames of his desire, and Severly knows he’s in for a long and difficult chase…

    weights on my eyes

    this is the worst book I have ever read. Boring, Boring, Boring! Never got my attention. I skipped pages, nothing helped. I will not buy any books by this author again.

    Loved it! Loved it!

    Celia Langston was a sixteen-year-old orphan. Her father had been the vicar of Harford, so she was considered to be well-bred. She took a position of governess, offered to her by Imogene. But Imy's husband, Philip, had died and left Imogene's brother, Drake (the Duke of Severly), half guardianship of their two sons. Drake did not feel Celia to be up to the task of caring for the boys. However, he would give her a chance. If she proved able to care for Henry and Peter, she could keep the position. Ten years later, 1816 Celly had always been intimidated by Drake and avoided him whenever he visited Harbrooke Hall (in Kent). This time, however, Drake would be staying for quite awhile. Celia could not avoid him all the time. She tried though. Drake saw Celia with different eyes this time. She was lovely. It was obvious how much his mother, Imogene, and the boys governess, except that she seemed to go out of her way to avoid seeing him. The chase began ... Major David Rotham was Drake's close friend from the military. When David came back from Scotland, Drake invited him. A romance began to bloom between him and Imogene. ***** That is as much as I can tell without giving anything vital away. I found the story so well done that I read the entire book in one afternoon! Then I went to several on-line book stores to purchase he previous releases. Unfortunately, it looks as though this is Rhonda Woodward's first novel to be published! I have found myself a wonderful new author to keep an eye on here. If Signet is wise, they will get a long-term contract on this author - FAST! ***** REVIEWER: DETRA FITCH

    Original, witty and touching tale!

    This title caught my eye and boy am I glad it did! A Spinster's Luck is a delightful, fun read. The heroine is one of the most intelligent and likeable I have come across in a long time. The hero is handsome and arrogant without being chauvinistic. What girl who had come to terms with her spinsterhood would not have her head turned by a yummy guy like this. Yet Celia refuses to settle for less than no holds barred love.
