      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestI picked up THE LAWYER'S LUCK because it was a freebie in the Kindle store, and because I'm actively trying to read more romance novels featuring PoCs because when I tallied up my reads from the last year, I found that, with the exception of some Beverly Jenkins and Courtney Milan romances, I was sorely lacking in that regardE LAWYER'S LUCK offers a fresh perspective of what it was like living in the Antebellum South. Lawrence is a mixed race man [...]

    2. Piper Huguley is probably my favourite American historical romance author. The depth of knowledge in the settings is exceptional and the sometimes brutal clarity of her view of people gives these books such backbone and depth. No rose tinted history, full awareness of how rotten systems rot the people in them, and the romances are all the stronger for it. This really is love triumphing against the odds. Cracking stuff, highly recommended.

    3. DNFI was really excited to read this when I saw it was free on Kindle, but unfortunately it just didn't cut it for me. There was some content in it that I was not okay with, the writing style was very "meh", and I felt like the picture of Christianity represented was inaccurate.

    4. This is my first historical romance. I loved it.Lawrence Stewart was busy studying to become a full-fledged lawyer as well as riding the circuit for a sick friend of his. Riding the circuit consisted of him performing the duties of a lawyer/judge. No doubt, he ran across many different situations which helped him to believe that he needed to be twice as good as, in order to be considered worthy to be a lawyer. All of his free time was spent studying, that is, until one morning he came out to pre [...]

    5. The Lawyer's Luck by author Piper Huguley: really, Lawrence, studying to become a lawyer, has little idea what kind of luck he may be in for when his horse is stolen by a beautiful runaway slave, Aurelia. The fact that Lawrence mistakenly shoots her in the arm doesn't help matters.It's very rare that book covers, even great ones, are my strongest initial attraction to a book, but, come on. How could I see this cover and resist? The models are on point, giving us personality without melodrama; ev [...]

    6. When future lawyer Lawrence accidentally shoots Realie for stealing his horse, his life drastically changes. Realie is an escaped slave and she's so close to freedom, but now, she has a major setback. She's been shot and now she's injured. She's in no condition to travel.For some strange reason, Realie finds herself drawn to Lawrence, whom she calls Lawyer. He seems determined to help her, plus he's a free and educated man. What would he want to do with the likes of her? Besides, they're from tw [...]

    7. The Lawyer's Luck, a prequel novella, by Piper Huguley is a beautifully written historical romance. The story centers around Realie, a runaway slave trying to make her way to Canada, and Lawrence, an educated African American lawyer whose only immediate goal is to fulfill his duties as a circuit court judge. When he catches Realie trying to steal his horse, his life is turned upside down as he embarks on an unexpected romantic journey. Realie is a spirited and determined heroine, while Lawrence [...]

    8. In a world where African American historical fiction has so many times been overlooked, I am so glad I had the pleasure of reading such a well written, authentic novella. I loved the differences between Lawrence and Realie. Realie is a spitfire, who is not afraid to go out into the world and seek the better life she knows she deserves. I really liked her character. And Lawrence, I found myself so identifying with his struggle to find his place in a world as a mixed race person. I loved the poise [...]

    9. While I am not a big fan of short fiction, I do realize the value of a novella prequel to introduce an upcoming series to reads. I must say that the author achieved her goal of writing an engaging prequel and has me anticipating reading the books in the series. I am big fan of historical fiction especially stories which looks into the history of black people. I appreciate how the author wrote the characters with dignity and grace within the troubling time period of the 1840s. This is a sweet rom [...]

    10. 4.5 rounded up to 5 stars!A tale of a runaway slave and the lawyer who shot her while she was stealing his horse? Oh yes, please!I loved this book. Realie (great name!) has such a distinctive voice, and I loved her to bits. Lawyer (loved that, too) had his own distinctive voice--and important to him, dignity. Opposites attract, and in this case, provided what they each desperately needed.

    11. This is my first time reading a AA Historical Christian Fiction How many ways can i say I fell in love with Realie the runaway slave girl and the her Fancy dressing Lawyer Lawrence gotta go, off to finish reading the second book of the series.

    12. This was a very quick and easy read. I could not connect with the characters Realie and Lawrence. Felt like something was missing to bring the story together.

    13. 3.5 StarsFor Lawrence and Realie, it’s not exactly love at first sight. But their relationship does start out with a bang… Unfortunately, it’s the gunshot variety. This inspirational historic romance is a quick read, offering a glimpse of perspective into both slavery and the maltreatment of Native American tribes during this time period (1840’s.) It’s told in alternating third-person POVs between tightly-wound and proper Lawrence—a lawyer of mixed Native and African American heritag [...]

    14. Loved, loved, loved this prequel to the Milford series. Lawrence, aka "Lawyer" and Realie couldn't be more different - a circuit riding law student, on the straight and narrow, and an enslaved woman, headed for the Canadian border, with a distrust of men like him. Their chemistry is immediate, the peril real, and the world in which they live is an intrinsic part of the romance. Lawrence holds fast to his principles, which he finds sorely tested by experience. Realie brings some harsh truths into [...]

    15. The Lawyer's Luck was a quick read. It sure didn't feel like it was 126 pages long. This is the first I've read by Piper Huguley and I look forward to reading more. Realie and Lawyer were well developed characters. It is hard to find good African American historical romances besides Beverly Jenkins. This book had a strong Christian bent. At times it was a little too preachy for me. While the slavery aspect wasn't glossed over there wasn't a vivid description of the evils faced either. I would ha [...]

    16. . Lawrence was studying to become a lawyer in Ohio, riding the circuit performing duties of a lawyer. Lawrence was on his way to ride the circuit only to discover that his horse was stolen by Realie, a runaway slave. Lawrence shot Realie by mistake and did his best to heal her wound. Awesome historical romance story!

    17. I loved this historical romance prequel novel! I look forward to reading more from the upcoming series and other works by this author.

    18. Loved the historical details, the interesting premise, and the touches of humor. Very much looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

    19. Good readI wasn't sure at first if I would like this book. It's different from my normal reads. But I have found this book to be enlightening to what life as a slave must have been like to some degree. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline.

    20. When a lawyer encounters a runaway slave, what is he to do? Slavery is a main subject here and thankfully it isn't romanticized. I also like it that a religious character means they are compassionate and hard-working, if a bit judge-y at times.

    21. Realie Baxter is on the run, trying to make it to Canada and freedom. Then she gets shot, accidentally by our hero, whilst stealing his unhappy horse.Lawrence is a lawyer riding the judicial circuit in Ohio working towards his final exams and starting his own practice. As someone who was born a free man with a mixed heritage (White, Indian and African) it was interesting to see his own privileges brought to his attention. Realie was smart and sassy, oh so sassy. It was a delight to see her stand [...]

    22. I'm really enjoying the book. I would re-read this more than once highly recommend!!!!! Oberlin, Ohio-1844Lawrence Stewart was working on getting his degree to be a lawyer. One day while leaving to run the circuit, he realised somebody had taken his horse and the horse tracks lead into the woods. Lawerence accidentally shot Realie which at this moment in time he really didn't know her name. Lawerence went to find out what he accidentally shot he shot a woman and he toke her in and toke care of t [...]

    23. This story highlights the uncertainty of life for slaves and free blacks alike in the years before the Civil War. Even though Realie has escaped slavery and made it all the way to northern Ohio, she still has to hide from the slave catchers who will take her back to her owner in a heartbeat. Even though Lawrence is an educated man and the trusted assistant to a judge, he has to deal with prejudice from those who think a black man can't or shouldn't be a lawyer.Realie and Lawrence both have defin [...]

    24. I Loved It And It Is True It's About Oberlin,Ohio-1844 Lawrence Stewart Is A Man .Raised With His Grandmother's Miami Indian Tribe, He's A Negro With Brown Skin, And Has Consistently Walked Between Two Worlds Most Of His Life . He Devotes His Time And Study To Becoming A Lawyer, Filly Intending To Obtain Justice For The Ousted Miami Indians. No Negro Man Has Accomplished These Things Before, But He Is Not Daunted. He Studies For His Exams As He Rides Circuit Through The Backwoods Of Ohio, Handin [...]

    25. Piper Huguley's voice drew me into the story like a bee to pollen, the setting and characters alive with rich intensity. The attraction between Lawrence and Realie is present early on and believable. The couple (worlds apart in education and background) are surprised when their feelings grow, yet the inevitable conclusion felt rushed, especially on Realie's part as we see less of her emotional progression. Such is often the case with novellas because of the length restrictions. Ms. Huguley's pre [...]

    26. This inspirational historical is beautifully done. Realie is an escaped slave trying to make her way to Canada. Lawrence is a wanna be lawyer. Their cute meet? When she tries to steal his horse! This novella actually serves as a prequel, and I'm looking forward to The Preacher's Promise. What really impressed me is how Huguley really keeps the voice of each character so distinct. They come from different worlds and have to negotiate understanding each other. Realie, obviously and understandably, [...]

    27. The Lawyer's Luck is a great introduction to the "Home to Milford College" series. The story had my attention from beginning to end. I like the chemistry between Lawrence and Realie. Where he was trusting, she was not so trusting of others, and she had a good reason to be cautious because trusting the wrong person would return her to the life she was trying to escape. The Lawyer's Luck was too short; it has peaked my interest in Ms. Huguley's work as an author. I am looking forward to reading th [...]

    28. 3.5 stars-- because honestly, I wanted more! This was a little plot-driven for my tastes, with some serious insta-love perhaps because of the length, which meant it didn't get to delve into the characters much beyond their circumstances. On the other hand, I read the teaser for the first few chapters of The Preacher's Promise and I can't wait to read more. I haven't read that many inspies that I really loved, but I think the rest of this series may be the ones that change my mind? Also put in a [...]

    29. History with a dash of humor - this story has it all. Lawrence and Realie (loved her name) face many challenges. Life isn't easy in their world, but they're both strong, intelligent people who don't back away from life's challenges. This story was as original as Ms Huguley's voice. Loved the details about riding circuit and the fun the author had with the horse's name. Can't wait to read her next book!
