Description from         

TAKE ONE MARQUESS: Proper, put-upon, dependable, but concealing a sensitive artist’s soul. ADD ONE BOHEMIAN LADY: Creative, boisterous, unruly, but secretly yearning for a steadfast love, home, and family. STIR in a sensational serialized story that has society ravenous for each installment. COMBINE with ambitious guests at an ill-fated house party hosted by a treacherous dowager possessing a poison tongue. SHAKE until a stuffy marquess and rebellious lady make a shocking discovery: the contents of their hearts are just alike.


An Enemies-to-Lovers trope with a huge smattering of humorous banter. Did that grab you, because it certainly is what I live for in a historical romance novel? The hero and heroine are trounced with issues. We have a curmudgeon of a 32 year old bachelor and an emotionally damaged young woman who is not going to take it anymore. He is her guardian with a tight hold on the purse strings.  She wants control of her own life. That is the battle.  Their HEA is truly up for grabs and I turned pages laughing and nervous about how they could get together.

I loved this story, I loved these characters and I urge you to read this book, which is a standalone book in this series. You’re gonna love it.

  1. I wish I could get some of this publisher’s ARCs to read. I tend to love their titles and their authors. I have no problem with many other publishers but have been declined Sourcebook Casablanca Books repeatedly, although I have a good feedback rating of 91% at present.
