Overview

A Woman Entangled by Cecilia Grant, Susan Ericksen

Kate Westbrook has dreams far bigger than romance. Love won't get her into London's most consequential parties, nor prevent her sisters from being snubbed and looked down upon-all because their besotted father unadvisedly married an actress. But a noble husband for Kate would deliver a future most suited to the granddaughter of an earl. Armed with ingenuity, breathtaking beauty, and the help of an idle aunt with connections, Kate is poised to make her dreams come true. Unfortunately, a familiar face-albeit a maddeningly handsome one-appears bent on upsetting her scheme. Implored by Kate's worried father to fend off the rogues eager to exploit his daughter's charms, Nick Blackshear has set aside the torch he's carried for Kate in order to do right by his friend. Anyway, she made it quite clear that his feelings were not returned-though policing her won't abate Nick's desire. Reckless passion leads to love's awakening, but time is running out. Kate must see for herself that the charms of high society are nothing compared to the infinite sweet pleasures demanded by the heart.

3.5 Stars…Exquisite Prose, Appealing Characters, and Humdrum Plot An exquisitely beautiful young woman and unacknowledged granddaughter of an earl – provoked by her family’s poor treatment within noble society – is willing to forsake love to marry an aristocrat. Kate Westbrook sets aside romantic notions for practical purposes. Now, her goal is within sight. Unfortunately, a family friend’s meddling may disrupt her plans. A few years ago, Nick Blackshear lost his head the first time he saw Kate. She bluntly nipped his courtship in the bud. Her conceit reduced his admiration of her; yet, over the years, this multifaceted woman behaved in other compelling ways to prove she is more than a pretty face. No matter. Nick has goals of his own. They may take some time to achieve due to a family scandal. Soon enough, those goals entwine with his friendship with Kate’s father and the ambitious woman herself. A Woman Entangled seems to conclude the Blackshear Family series. The characters were all I had hoped they would be: rounded, compelling, and conflicted. Again, Cecilia Grants’ gorgeous prose absorbed my interest until the lethargic plot had me putting down the book a few times. Ms. Grant has a talent for avoiding overused plot devices. This book continues with this trend, which I appreciate. Regrettably, the romance and family drama seemed inadequate. The straightforward plot needed more momentum, more energy. It’s a guarantee that Nick and Kate would have their happy ending. Their inner conflict - mostly family scandals - was sincere, but not strong enough to grip this reader. A Woman Entangled played out like the gentle music from a finely-tuned cello, but I was not expecting a lullaby. I give Ms. Grant a great big cheer for creating a seemingly shallow heroine. Kate Westbrook was anything but superficial. Kate used the tools available to improve her family’s lot in life for the time period. This book may not have resonated with me like A Gentleman Undone, but other readers may be positively moved by the classically played elegance in her writing. I continue to look forward to Cecilia Grants’ future work. Digital RC compliments of Random House Publishing via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

ABOUT THE BOOK: An ambitious beauty seeking a spot among the elite is thwarted by a most disruptive gentleman in Cecilia Grant’s witty, elegant, and exquisitely sensual novel. Kate Westbrook has dreams far bigger than romance. Love won’t get her into London’s most consequential parties, nor prevent her sisters from being snubbed and looked down upon—all because their besotted father unadvisedly married an actress. But a noble husband for Kate would deliver a future most suited to the granddaughter of an earl. Armed with ingenuity, breathtaking beauty, and the help of an idle aunt with connections, Kate is poised to make her dreams come true. Unfortunately, a familiar face—albeit a maddeningly handsome one—appears bent on upsetting her scheme. Implored by Kate’s worried father to fend off the rogues eager to exploit his daughter’s charms, Nick Blackshear has set aside the torch he’s carried for Kate in order to do right by his friend. Anyway, she made quite clear that his feelings were not returned—though policing her won’t abate Nick’s desire. Reckless passion leads to love’s awakening, but time is running out. Kate must see for herself that the charms of high society are nothing compared to the infinite sweet pleasures demanded by the heart. REVIEW: Wow! WOW! Ms. Grant doesn’t disappoint! This book was not only a page-turner, one I couldn’t put down, but the writing was as smooth as warm honey. Such a beautifully crafted story, told so well, that you will forget the characters are only fictional. You’ll fall in love with both, as you read their story toward a true quest for love. I loved the angst with this piece and the modern day turn on a historical romance. I think this is a piece that will have readers gripping the book and hopping in their seat. Ms. Grant has the ability to transform her stories into a majestic wonder for readers all over! Five out of five stars for a job well done!

This is book 3 in the Blackshear Family series. Kate Westbrook's family has been snubbed by the ton ever since her father's marriage an actress.  Kate feels that if she can just marry the right man, one with lord in front of their name, she will make life easier on her sisters.  Kate finally has the opportunity to find that husband when her friend Nick Blackshear keeps popping up. Kate's father has asked Nick to keep on eye on Kate when she goes out to each evening's entertainment. Nick would do anything for Mr. Westbrook, even watch over the women that scorned him three years ago. Nick acts like his torch for Kate is gone, but spending more time with her just shows him that it isn't. Because of a scandal with Nick's brother, he must marry into a family with no blemishes. Kate want to help her family finally find acceptance.  Can they put aside their wishes to find the desire in both of their hearts? I really enjoyed this story.  Kate and Nick had developed a friendship (other than his initial declaration at the start of it) before trying to make it more.  They had more to build their relationship upon that the normal physical attraction that you find in books.  I don't know if there are going to be more books in the series, but I'd really love to see the story of Louise and Lord Barclay as well as the stories of Kate's sisters.

Being a historical romance lover this was a wonderful read. I know personally and I am sure there are plenty of people in the world who have had the battle between what they THINK they want and what thier HEART decides they need. It isn't easy to go through but as the saying goes "always follow your heart" and that is exactly what Kate ends up doing. So if your interested in seeing how a women back in the 18th century tries to help bring back her families good name, and struggles with her thoughts and her emotions then grab this book. You will not regret it.

Ms. Grant continues to amaze me with her beautiful writing, her deeply drawn characters and her humorous, heartfelt stories. I particularly love that, in this third in the series, she relied on her characters, their inner struggles and thoughtful responses to challenges, to carry the story. While I loved the ingenious plots of her two prior books (as well as the characters and writing), I found myself really captured by beautiful way Ms. Grant depicts the very human dilemmas which Kate and Nick face without resorting to excessive drama. Their struggles grow out of the strictures of their society and their solutions grow out of their hearts, as they each come to understand themsrlves and each other more deeply. I look forward to more by this fabulous writer

Oh how I wanted to hate Kate.  She has the eye of every man yet refuses to allow them to pay suit as she has her grand plans to repair the family name by marrying a respected member of the Ton.  But every time I was ready to go aha! she would do something incredible sweet.  This is a wonderful tale dealing with the class systems and those of family as well.  Cecilia Grant is a new to me author but I will be checking out her backlist and will look for her future titles as well.  This was a well written story and I am thrilled to have been offered the opportunity by Bantam via NetGalley to read and review in exchange for my honest opinion.  If you enjoy historical romance read this book you won’t be disappointed.

Cecilia Grant has written a wonderful book. It is a Recency story but set at the end of the Era. The rules and mores of the era are beginning to loosen up. It begins with two families who are estranged from all their relatives. Nick stepped away from his family because his younger brother who came home from the European Campaign fought a duel for for a friend's mistress. He wound up marrying her. Totally unacceptable. Kate was determined to bring her estranged family together so she and her sisters could have a better life of life. She has spent years sending notes to her father's brother's wife. Her father was shunned due to marrying a lady from the theater. Finally she receives an invitation to call on her aunt. They go to balls and routs so she can be accepted as a Ladies Companion. However she still has plans on finding a Lord to marry. She and Nick have been close for three years. It was fun and  sad to see how everyone settles their lives. This had a totally real believable feel. Not everyone was rich . Not everyone married rich. But you still could have a good life. I enjoyed reading this book and laughing and crying with these marvelous characters. This is definitely a reread book. Please add this one to your shelf.
