THE RELUCTANT MARQUESS (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 02, 2011 06:25PM
Description: A country-bred girl, Charity Barlow always intended to marry for love like her parents. She suddenly finds herself married to a marquess, her new husband an aloof stranger determined to keep his thoughts and feelings to himself. She and Lord Robert have been forced by circumstances to marry, and she feels sure she is not the woman he would have chosen given a choice. He makes it plain that marriage is merely for the procreation of an heir, and once that is achieved, he intends to continue in London living the life he enjoyed before he met her. Charity may then retire to the country. While Lord Robert pursues his own interests, Charity is left to wander the echoing corridors of St. Malin House, when she isn’t thrown into the midst of the mocking and clever Haute Ton. She’s not at all sure she likes them, as they live by their own rules, which seem rather shocking. She’s not at all sure she likes her new husband either, except for his blue, blue eyes, the panther-like way he walks, and the hot expression in his eyes when he looks at her, which sends her pulses racing. He is a rake and does not deserve her love, but neither does she wish to live alone. Lord Robert appears quite willing to do his duty, but Charity demands love and affection, nothing less will do. Will he ever love her?

“The best way to mend a broken heart is to fall in love again...Preferably with someone who is able to return your affection”
Maggi Andersen, Lady Honor's Debt

“her up onto the high seat with astonishing ease. She arranged her skirts with a sidelong glance at his muscular shoulders as he climbed in beside her. When Montsimon pulled up the hood, sudden doggy breath warmed her cheek. Althea glanced behind her. A rather ugly terrier sat scratching an ear. The ear looked slightly chewed. “Do sit down, Spot,” Montsimon said with a grimace. “So, this is Spot,” Althea said politely. Montsimon’s description of the dog was apt. It was hardly the progeny of careful breeding.”

They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.”

Maggi Andersen Hi Anne! Nice to find you here. Cold in our part of the world, isn't it.

message 4: by Maggi

Maggi Andersen Yes thanks, I am having a lazy weekend reading and watching old movies. Under a Silent Moon isn't so much a romance as a murder mystery. If you like mysteries set in the Regency period I would also recommend C S Harris, What Angels Fear and When Gods die. I'm reading Eloisa James at the moment, I love her Georgian romances.
Cheers,
Maggi


NorthernLightsGirl Hi from Alaska,

Maggi Andersen Hi from Australia,
I see you enjoy reading historical romances, so do I. I'm reading a great one right now, Under a Silent Moon, a Regency intrigue by Tracy Grant. As a writer myself I'm really enjoying the quality of the writing and research.
Cheers,
Maggi


NorthernLightsGirl Hi Maggi,
