Third Son’s a Charm By Shana Galen $1.99
Third Son's a Charm (The Survivors) - Shana Galen

Ewan Mostyn thinks a job as a duke's daughter's bodyguard will be easy—but Lady Lorraine has a few tricks up her sleeve that spark an undeniable passion


Fiercely loyal to his friends and comrades, Ewan Mostyn is the toughest in a group of younger sons of nobility who met as soldiers and are now trying desperately to settle back into peaceful Society. Ewan trusts his brawn more than his brains, but when he's offered a job watching the Duke of Ridlington's stubbornly independent daughter, he finds both are challenged.


Lady Lorraine wants none of her father's high-handed ways, and she'll do everything in her power to avoid her distressingly attractive bodyguard—until she lands herself in real trouble. Lorraine begins to see Ewan's protectiveness in a new light, and she can only hope that her stoic guardian will do for her what he's always done—fight for what he wants.

Third Son's a Charm by Shana Galen
Third Son's a Charm (The Survivors) - Shana Galen

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I had so much fun reading this historical romance! I have to admit that the cover of this book is what first grabbed my attention. I am always a sucker for pretty covers and the cover of this book is simply gorgeous. I have enjoyed Shana Galen's work in the past and this sounded like a good story so I knew that I would have to read it. It turned out to be a very enjoyable read that was really hard to put down.

Ewan knows his place in life. He is the third son of an Earl and is therefore rather useless to his family. He has been a solider and is known for some of his brave acts but that hasn't changed his father's opinion of him. Many see Ewan as a dimwit because he has been unable to learn to read. When he is offered a position to guard a Duke's daughter, he decides to take the job.

Lorrie really wants to marry. So much so that she has recently tried to elope with her love, Francis. Lorrie is determined to make the marriage happen and believes that she and Francis are in love. The Duke opposes the match and tasks Ewan with making sure it does not happen. Ewan becomes a permanent fixture at all of the society events attended by Lorrie and her family.

I loved these two together! Ewan tends to doubt himself since he has been told he is dumb his whole life. Lorrie sees him for the intelligent man that he truly is. Lorrie believes that she is in love with Francis but she soon learns that love is something very different. This pair had a lot of wonderful chemistry with each other and complimented each other quite nicely.

I would recommend this book to fans of historical romance. The book is filled with wonderful characters and a few exciting moments. I can't wait to read the next book in this delightful series!

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley.

Review for Third Son's a Charm (The Survivors #1) by Shana Galen
Third Son's a Charm (The Survivors) - Shana Galen

This story has the best love declaration I have ever read! It had me having all the feels, specially for Ewan, the most alluring non-Viking Viking I've read. 
Lorrie is a young, passionate, spirited woman that has gone as far as try to elope because her parents won’t allow her to marry the man she loves. Seeing how his daughter will not be dissuaded from marrying the wrong man, her father hires Ewan Mostyn, the third son of an earl and an ex-soldier that’s mostly known for knocking heads together at a gambling club than for appearing at a dance ball. 
Ewan is a taciturn man, rejected by his father because he considers him an unworthy son, and judged by society because he is considered nothing more than a brute. Ever since he was a child, he was told he was stupid due to a learning disability and it wasn’t until he joined the army and later some sort of “suicide unit” that he finally felt he belonged somewhere. I fell in love with his honesty and quiet way of communicating. He had this genuine way about him that made him both charming and alluring in a very unique, gentle way. The author made a fabulous job conveying his emotions because to me they all felt real and relatable. 

People tend to forget that historicals include debutants and most heroines are barely of age when they are thrown into the marriage market. Lorrie is young so yeah, she’s going to act recklessly at times, but in my opinion she was not stupid but naïve. She was also determined, curious, and true to herself. She was capable of seeing in Ewan what he was not able to see in himself and that in turn gave him the strength to fight for what he wanted. If that’s not a worthy heroine then I don’t know what is. 

We get a secondary love story between Lorrie’s parents that I would have loved to see more of but at least it gave me more of an insight of why Lorrie and Ewan’s closeness was allowed. Oh, and let's not forget the other Saviors! There was such a brotherly banter and comradery among them that my heart melted a little bit every time I got to read about them. I was a little off put with something towards the end but other than this was a great book and a great start to a new series. 

** I was gifted a copy of this book and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.**

Review For: Third Son's a Charm by Shana Galen
Third Son's a Charm (The Survivors) - Shana Galen

Third Son's a Charm by Shana Galen is the First Book in the New Series Called "The Survivors". This is the story of Ewan Mostyn and Lady Lorraine 'Lorrie' Caldwell.
Ewan is the third son of an Earl but more importantly he is one of a group of men who took jobs that few would because of the danger. Ewan was apart of a group of men who were Survivors! Now Ewan is leaving and fighting in a gambling hell when he is offered the job to be a 'body quard' to Lorrie. Ewan takes the job thinking it will be a easy one but Lorrie proves to be anything but an easy job. Lorrie thinks herself in love with Francis Mostyn who happens to be a cousin to Ewan. Francis has asked her father for her hand in marriage but he said no. So Lorrie has thought to runaway with Francis but hasn't succeeded yet. Lorrie finds Ewan fascinating but tries to stand her ground on her feelings for Francis.
This book just sucked you into their story and you could not put it down. I felt for Ewan so much with his self doubts but strong feelings. Lorrie although misguided at first in her feelings was very sweet and spunky .
What a wonderful start to a great series!

Ms. Galen knows what's appealing to the heart, but sets her sights on stimulating the mind.  Third Son's a Charm is a seductive puzzle.  Every sense is on high alert.  Sizzling attraction puts a mischievous lady and a duty bound soldier on a collision course with romance and intrigue unlike any other.  Hidden agendas, secret liaisons and read herrings at every turn make the road treacherous, but no less thrilling.  Never malicious but always delicious, Shana Galen is romance on the edge.  Exciting, inviting and delighting.
