This book was quite a joy to read. The story pulls you in at the beginning, when Richard, the Merry Marquis, returns home to find music being played in his house and he thinks it is the ghost of his deceased wife. It turns out, it is the niece of his neighbor, there to practice on the pianoforte. He continues to allow her to practice in his home, just for their attraction to grow and for them to be caught in a compromising position. I found myself wishing Richard would let go of his deceased wif ...more
Teresa Seton is newly arrived in England from Spain; to live with her aunt & have her come out. She finds it a terrible trial to be out in society finding it hard at times not to speak out at the hypocrisy she finds among the privileged of the ton. Her only solace is her music & she escapes to play the pianoforte in the house next door where she meets Richard who doesn’t divulge that he is actually the Marquis of Merrick.
Richard is newly widowed after his beloved wife is killed after a f

I really had a hard time with Teresa's mother, when she showed up in the story. Really didn't like her a whole lot; selfish, self absorbed, spoiled beauty. Although I guess that pretty much described a lot of the society of those times (and maybe even now). She constantly sabotaged her daughter and although Teresa knows this, she confides something personal to her mother, that could be used to hurt her. Right after her mother tried to seduce Richard.
Sorry, that I had a hard time believing. The r

I really liked this book. Teresa Seton is in her first year in the Ton. Teresa has a lot of personal conflicts to overcome including the recent death of her father, a very self-absorbed mother and the fact she is very shy. She feels best playing music and has a passion to help destitute war heroes. She encounters Richard the Merry Marquis, who he himself has many issues to resolve. Having lost his wife and other family members in the past year, he has cut himself off from Society. Due to a compr ...more

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. That said this story was set in regency period. It was about a young woman who's first time as debutant. She was very shy but could play the pianforte elegenatly. She would go next door to play. SInce her aunt did not have the instrament. She unknowingly meet the Merry Marquis who was had lost his wife the year before. He hid his identity from her. Of course they were found out and he asked her to marry him. Just a marriage of conv ...more

I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review of this book, which in no way influenced my opinion. I admit this novel is quite different from most of the romance novels I read. I found myself a bit lost at first. I had to look up several words to learn their meaning. I was soon drawn into Richard and Teresa's story. I found this book to be a very charming read. I really enjoyed how the relationship between Richard and Teresa evolve. I am glad I was given the opportunity to read and review t ...more
Considering this book contains one of my bulletproof narrative kinks, it didn't really engage me all that much. I liked Teresa a lot, and I liked Richard, and their romance had its moments, but the writing was clunky and the pacing was weird.
