A Lady Unrivaled

A Lady Unrivaled (Ladies of the Manor, #3)A Lady Unrivaled by Roseanna M. White
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great finish to the series! I enjoyed seeing all the previous characters come back for a final appearance. “Ladies of the Manor” is definitely a series to read in the proper order. “The Lost Heiress” is first, then “The Reluctant Duchess.”

In “A Lady Unrivaled,” Lady Ella Myerston was devastated by the betrayal of her friend, Stella. She decides to compensate for her lack of judgment on that score by solving the problem of the Fire Eyes diamonds and their curse. Although dedicated to that cause, she can’t help but be drawn to Lord James Cayton. Despite his less-than-honorable reputation, well-earned as it was, she believes he’s not the man he’s thought to be. He has been, however, as poor a judge in friends as she was. When his friends come to stay, it’ll take all their cooperation to keep the diamonds out of the hands of those who would kill – again – to get them.

Plenty of romance and drama is this one. Perhaps a bit slower off the mark than the first two books, but well worth reading and what an ending! No spoiler here. Sit back and enjoy the countryside around Cotswold, England, in a time when so much was changing in the world.
