"A Woman Entangled" is the third novel in Cecilia Grant's Blackshear Family series and in it, we follow the path to true love followed by Nicholas Blackshear, the middle brother and London Barrister whom we have glimpsed previously in both "A Lady Awakened" and "A Gentleman Undone".

Nick has his eye on a future career in politics, and has been doing quite well in his chosen profession, until, that is, his younger brother Will made rather a scandalous marriage (as told in "A Gentleman Undone") and caused a scandal that has had repercussions for Nick. The briefs are no longer coming his way as thickly as they used to, and knowing this, his friend and mentor, Charles Westbrook, gives Nick's name to a recently ennobled baronet who is looking for someone to tutor him in the art of argument and public speaking.

The Westbrooks are also the subject of society's censure owing to the fact that Charles Westbrook, the son of an earl, married an actress against the wishes of his family, who immediately cut all contact with him and have not acknowledged him or his family ever since. But Westbrook and his wife made a love match; Mrs Westbrook is shown to be a woman of sense, intelligence and more good-breeding than many of the matrons of the ton, and their children, too, do not feel as though they have lost anything by being ignored by their father's noble relatives.

All of them except the eldest daughter, Kate. Well aware that finding husbands for her three younger sisters is going to be difficult without the Westbrooks having either money or consequence on their side, Kate has determined to restore her family to its rightful place in society by using the most powerful means at her disposal. Herself.

A tour de force 4 Sept. 2013
By Claire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book. Everything is wonderful about it: the writing, the story, the romance. I loved it.
One of the many reasons I am a Cecilia Grant fan is that her stories are always interesting: they are about people who live on the fringes of the society usually portrayed in regency romances, and it is a pleasure to read about people who are NOT dukes and earls, who are NOT enormously rich and entitled, but who live in the same "space" and under the same social rules.
This book is a shining example (in a good way) of why historical accuracy matters: the whole story works because the author understands (and conveys) the attitudes and constraints of society at the time. This is not 21st century attitudes and language dressed up in 19th century costumes. In this story both the Hero and the heroine are very flawed but there are good reasons for them to be this way (given society at the time) and it is fun to watch them develop and find their way towards each other. The obstacles to their HEA make total sense.
Finally, Jane Austen fans will enjoy Ms Grant's nods to that great author, not only in the obvious references to P&P and Emma but in more subtle ways throughout the story.
Ms Grant occupies a place all her own in this genre and is well worth reading. This is the third in a series and is the best by far - I think it also could stand alone very well. I can't recommend it enough.

3.5 Stars...Exquisite Prose, Appealing Characters, and Humdrum Plot 25 Jun. 2013
By Anna (Bobs Her Hair) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

Deliberate and Decidedly Right 29 Jun. 2013
By B. Proczko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When I first read Grant's first book, "A Lady Awakened," I found it novel but somewhat standoffish - rather like that story's heroine. Yet I found myself reading it twice more in the subsequent months and enjoying, appreciating really, the careful writing.
When I read "A Gentleman Undone," I immediately loved that unique pairing of characters as well as the real sense of consequence, good and bad, to their choices.
This third installment of Blackshear romance is almost a perfect hybrid. I read it slowly - unusual for me - and thought it rather average, if amusing, for at least half the book. But then... I was crying with Kate. I sympathised with and smirked at Nick. And I found the ending well-earned and surprisingly, entirely satisfying.
Like Courtney Milan and Sherry Thomas, Grant chooses protagonists on the fringe of polite society and gets a richer angle for it. Highly recommended.

mixed feelings 4 July 2013
By CA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Cecilia Grant's heroines are always so unique and she tackles some nontraditional situations - nontraditional for the historical romance genre - that's why I enjoy her books. I liked this one - however, I am in a quandary, as I really didn't care for the main characters in this book.

Kate was incredibly shallow and pretentious in her single-minded motivation to snare a husband with a title, believing it was her right of heritage. She is ashamed of her family - her parents having married for love rather than for advancement (her mother was an actress - horrors!), and her motivation for advancement is supposedly a selfless desire to improve the prospects of her sisters, but I still thought her methods rather heartless. I was stunned that she could be so capable of such lack of faith in her own family.

Nick is only slightly better - I wanted to like him, but because his brother married a courtesan, he callously breaks off all connection with him, afraid that his brother's marriage would tarnish his social standing and prohibit any possibility of advancing in his own career. Unfortunately, both Kate and Nick, despite Nick's long-standing attraction to her, treat each other as good friends, but as obstacles to their goals in life. This would have been tolerable if it hadn't been carried through almost to the end of the book.

Perhaps these two were made for each other. But I had difficulty feeling any concern for either of them. Kate is repeatedly described as being drop-dead gorgeous, and apparently stops men dead in their tracks with her dazzling smile - and she knows it. She prides herself in her meticulous manners and conversational prowess. We are repeatedly reminded of this. She uses her skills to be manipulative and calculating in everything she does, and although I waited very patiently, I found no redeeming qualities in her behavior - I thought her fairly insincere.

So why 4 stars? I think Cecilia Grant is a phenomenal author, and could probably write a book on agriculture and make it fascinating. This book is worth the read to indulge yourself in beautiful writing and delicious prose. Although I didn't really connect with the H/h, I was still moved by the story-telling. It is slow- going - a lot of talk, a lot of thought, not a lot of action - but I wasn't bored for a minute. The secondary characters are fascinating - Kate's sister, Viola, is marvelous, and truthfully the more interesting of all the characters. She is the antithesis to Kate - she's brainy, outspoken, fearless, unpretentious and nonjudgmental -my kind of gal. I am crossing my fingers that she gets her own story. Louisa, who befriends Kate against all social mores, is also worthy of mention -she shows Kate what it means to be a true friend despite the threat of social rejection. In fact, now that I think on it, most of the secondary characters had far more redeeming qualities than Kate.....

I would give this 5 stars for the writing and 3 stars for the H/h - thank god they weren't real - averaging 4 stars.

This book gave me chills.... 28 Jun. 2013
By Bitten By Love - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.
