Book Review: The Reluctant Marquess - Maggi Andersen
The Reluctant Marquess by Maggi Andersen
Knox Robinson Publishing
A delightful and enjoyable historical romance that will keep readers eagerly turning the pages, The Reluctant Marquess is a terrific tale from a writer to watch out for: Maggi Andersen!
Charity Barlow is an impoverished young orphan who has only ever had one dream: to marry a man she loves who would love her back. When her parents had died, she had been left in the care of her godfather, the Marquess of St.Malin. However, Charity is shocked when, on arriving at her guardian's house, she discovers the Marquess had died and she has been left in the care of his heir, his nephew Lord Robert. As if that wasn't bad enough, Robert and Charity soon discover that the only way they can inherit the estate is if they marry!
Robert makes it perfect clear that theirs can only ever be a marriage of convenience. But will Charity be able to show her reluctant husband that happiness can be within his grasp if only he would let her breach the defenses which he has built around his heart?
An engaging and engrossing Georgian tale with a fantastic heroine, a swoon-worthy hero, emotional angst, steamy passion and poignant romance, The Reluctant Marquess is a page-turning tale readers are sure to love!
