He's a hired gunman with walls around his heart. She's a determined woman with trouble on her trail. They have a history they cannot deny, and an attraction they cannot control. With the ultimate battle looming, Caroline realizes she must risk everything to capture the love of a loner.

Emily March creates real characters. This book is part of the "Bad Luck" series, so it's nice to get to catch up with some of the characters I've already read about in previous books. This story is about Logan and Caroline. It's set in the 1800's. Logan has had a lot of tragedy in his life, but is considered very "Lucky". He has friends, but is basically a Loner. Caroline is someone from his past and comes to him for help when she has some trouble. There's lots of action in this story, which I really like. Seeing how these two come together and really get to know each other is entertaining. Caroline is very strong and independent, which are very refreshing qualities in the female lead. It looks like this is gonna be a series, so I'm excited to read the other books. I enjoyed this story a lot =) (less)

I thoroughly enjoyed the previous “Bad Luck Wedding” books and fully expected to enjoy “The Loner” one as well. This is book 8 of that series and book 1 of the “Good Luck Groom series”. This story absolutely met all my expectations and more. Logan “Lucky” Grey doesn’t believe he is lucky at all and is rather grumbly about it. He was dubbed “Lucky” after having survived a tragedy as a child. Caroline Kilpatrick knows Logan from a previous meeting which Logan doesn’t remember until she deliberately confronts him with it. Caroline has an agenda and all she has to do is convince Logan he has to help her. Twists and turns, murder and mayhem ensue as together they work their way through to a better understanding of what they really mean to each other. I was given the opportunity to get an advanced reader copy of this book in return for an honest review. I did enjoy this one just as I did all the earlier books. Emily March provides a fun and entertaining story, good reading!! Thank you

If you enjoy the American West, particularly Texas, during the late 1800s, then you’ll love THE LONER, Book 9 in Emily March’s The Bad Luck Wedding Series. Our hero Logan Grey rejects that title. He’s gained a reputation at the “luckiest man in Texas,” but Logan knows the truth — he’s a fraud. What others consider good luck, he considers bad luck in situations that hurt others. Caroline Kilpatrick hopes to use Logan’s luck to help her rescue the most important man in her life. Although sparks fly when Caroline is around Logan, she has no intention of having a relationship beyond her quest. Of course, the best laid plans rarely work out. Watching these two prickly characters come together was a delight. Their journey is not smooth, and March throws in plenty of twists. This book can stand alone, but you will meet characters from earlier books in the series. You’ll find yourself wanting to go back and read (or re-read) those earlier titles.

I totally enjoyed reading Logan and Caroline’s story in The Loner by Emily March; book one in her Good Luck Grooms series but book eight in The Bad Luck Wedding series. Logan Grey had lived a life full of tragedy and vowed to live his life alone. Despite all of the tragedy in his life Logan was called Lucky Logan Grey. Caroline Kilpatrick was not going to allow him to wallow in his thoughts when she confronts him, in front of his friends, and Caroline makes Logan an offer he will not be able to refuse. Together they will battle outlaws, danger, and desire as they seek treasure hidden within Black Shadow Canyon. Hired gunman Logan has built walls around his heart. Caroline is a determined woman despite trouble following her. They have a shared history, one they cannot deny as well as an attraction that is out of control. Caroline is willing to risk everything to convince Logan to stay with her and be a family. Logan is a loner and refuses to stay in one place; or is he? Caroline and Logan are both such strong characters that not much will stop them from pursuing what they set out to accomplish. Ms. March wrote a wonderfully sweet, emotional and moving story that is not to be missed. It was a story filled with sexual attraction, fun dialogue, and endearing characters giving Logan and Caroline a chance to discover they were meant for each other along with the possibility of a future together. I highly recommend The Loner to other readers and look forward to Emily March’s next book. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Logan "Lucky" Grey is afraid of loss after a tragedy in his early life left him alone. He chooses to live a life with very little to lose from that point on. Living the life of a hired gunman, always on the move, is a perfect way to avoid too many strong attachments. That goes well for a while, until a strong woman, Caroline, shows up needing his help. He cannot refuse her request and that might be the best decision he ever made. I generally do not read historical romances. I enjoy contemporary stories much more, but I did enjoy this story so much! I think the reason is that the woman in this book, of this time period, had to be strong to survive the lives they led. They did not wait for a man to be around to save them. They grew up knowing that they had to save themselves and as a result did not shy away from difficult situations. Reading this book has opened my horizon that I might have been missing some great stories and I will be exploring more out of my comfort zone. I want to thank Emily March for writing this great story, which will lead me to reading more historical western romance books. I was luckily given an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. My review, which is my own opinion, is not influenced by receiving the ARC.

I love reading books that are a part of a series as the story seems to go on forever. THE LONER is a book in the Bad Luck Wedding series. Logan was orphaned at a young age and lost a wife and child as an adult. He is afraid of being a part of a family that he might lose again. When he finds out that he is still married to Caroline (from what was supposed to be a fake wedding) and has a son, he can’t find it in himself to stay with his family. Caroline is a strong woman, determined to protect her family. I enjoyed reading as their relationship developed and Logan realized that he didn’t have to be a loner forever.

Read this while on vacation in the old west, how appropriate to feel like I'm right there in the time. Could hard put the book down to enjoy the scenery. Since a strong woman lead character and loved that the lead male had the angst and uncertainties in his life. Emily March never disappoints. Barb K

I've been a fan of historical romance as long as I can remember. Usually I go for the glamorous regency era, but this time I decided to try something new. The Loner rises above any expectations that I thought I had. Logan and Caroline take emotions on an adventurous route to romance. March intrigues with danger, tempts with passion and captures hearts with a whirlwind of emotion. I may just have to rethink my stand on western historical romance.

The Loner: Good Luck Grooms, Book 1 (The Bad Luck Wedding Series 8) by Emily March ...This was a wonderful series and thanks to Emily March and the publisher for letting me preview this book. Logan Grey(Lucky)....has a tragic past and works as hired gun sort of like a bounty hunter. Caroline Kilpatrick ..also has a tragedy in her life... She needs his help...there is murder, mystery, kidnapping, lies and half truths, laughter, love, tears(I shed a few) steam and none stop action all getting us to a very HEA. It was great to touch base with friends from the first three books ...but this can be read as a stand alone with no problem. Reasons I enjoyed this book: Action-packed Easy-to-read Entertaining Funny Great world building Happily Ever After Page-turner Romantic Steamy Tear-jerker Tragic Unpredictable Witty Wonderful characters

Very accurate historical details, exciting romance, not cheesey and the male/female dynamic is very balanced and both leads are so fun to get to know their stories.... This book is beautifully written, has amazing detail about the scene, characters, plot. I love the leads Logan and Caroline. Their romance is like a slow burn. I love the passion they share - their story line is humorous, sexy, and sweet. Highly encourage you to read this book if you encourage romance, history, the old west, suspense, and appreciate a quality story line!

I laughed, I cried and I was surprised at some of the plot twists but at no time did I ever put the book down until the final word. Lost sleep to finish it. The story of Caroline and Lucas kept me engrossed and it was nice to revisit old friends from the Bad Luck Wedding series. Thank you, Emily March, for another amazing story! Loved it!
