My heartbeat has been overly tested by this novel, I still feel the hungover. This is one of those few romances where I have had a much bigger appreciation for the heroine than for the hero. I did love both, but I must say that Lady Beatryce is an extremely complex character, with her, the reader is always on the edge between disliking and loving her; I found myself more than once in the position to empathise with her and understanding her actions despite the fact that they are obviously

Lady Beatryce Beckett’s father is dead, but that doesn’t stop his sadistic associates from the Society of the Purification of England from pursuing her for what she knows. Her ex-fiance is away and safely married to her cousin, and she has no one left to turn to for help except for Cliff, the charismatic Marquess of Dansbury.

Cliff is as amiable as he is gorgeous, but it seems like the only person in England he truly dislikes is Lady Beatryce. Although he’s seriously attracted to her, he’s seen

Loved it! I think I still prefer book 1 though, and I believe I know why. I didn't like Bea before, although liked her a little better, but not much in this story. To me, Dansbury's personality seemed different at the beginning of this novel, from book 1. Or perhaps not. It might be my memory letting me down again!
Anyhow, I found this to be a fab story. A most enjoyable read. And I love Amy Quinton's writing style. Loved what we heard of from MacLeod. Can't wait for his story (with Dansbury's Am

Another great read!

There was never a dull moment and the main characters sizzled the entire time. Steamy scenes and laugh out loud moments make this a definite keeper!

I really enjoyed reading What a Marquess Sees by Amy Quinton. It is the second book in the Agents of Change series. Non stop action that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

This book has spies, traitors, abuse, steamy love scenes, weddings, love, passion, and much more. If you want an action packed book, this one is for you!!

What The Marquess Sees
By: Amy Quinton

Bullies come in all forms. And they come in the form of small petite ladies. Lady Beatryce Beckett was a terrible bully. She was mean and spiteful and ruined anyone that got in her way. She would even be mean purely just to be mean. To say she was not liked would be an exaggeration. Who could like her?

The Marquess of Dansbury didn't like her, at all. At first, he thought she was attractive. But then, he was treated to her behavior. He finds her presence repu

What the Marquess Sees by Amy Quinton is the second book in her Agents of Change Series. I haven't had the opportunity to read the first book, but this one was easily read as a stand alone one.

The story revolves around Cliff, The Marquess of Dansbury, who is a spy for the Crown. At the beginning of the story he has his first encounter with Lady Beatryce Beckett. From the shadows on a patio he sees her and immediately falls in lust with her. He is fascinated by her, but before he gets an opportun

I loved being surprised and What the Marquess Sees, definitely surprised me. Truly loved this book and Beatryce and Cliff.

I have not read the first book in Agents of Change but had no trouble reading this book as a standalone.

In the beginning I really wanted to hate Beatryce but as the book progresses my feelings about her changed to respect and admiration. Loved the Marquess from the start and only grew to love him more. The banter was entertaining to say the least.

I love the time period; the

Do you love a good book with spies and traitors? One with a protective, loving hero, and a strong, willful though very cruel heroine? If you answered YES to one or both of those questions then this book IS for you.

I absolutely loved book one in this series and was truly looking forward to reading this one. I needed to know how Beatryce was going to redeem herself and how the charming, charismatic Cliff Danbury was going to protect her with out killing her. Amy Quinton did a wonderful job showing

Loved the book Lady beatryce story was so sad I really wanted her to have a happy ending.I am glad her father died after the way he treated her.Dansbury was a great foil to her and they belonged together.I cant wait to read the next book in the series.Alasdair and dansburys sister should make a great story .Need to know when the next installment is ready!!!!I received this book free as part of goodreads giveaways.
I didn't like the heroine, Beatryce, who was the antagonist in book 1. The changes in characters and twists are too far fetched, not credible. Like in book 1, the story in book 2 is left unfinished. I read book 2 because I was curious and wanted to know. But I was too disappointed and won't read book 3.

I'm having a hard time getting into this one. Going to sit it aside for now.

DNF. I did not like the main female character at all. In the previous book she was a nasty, spiteful, vindictive bitch, which made it impossible to believe her character change in this book.

Well written but....

I absolutely adored the first book in the series and was looking forward to this one. However I didn't realise the heroine in this book would the villain of the first. The author did such a good job in making me hate her that for me there could be no redemption for her. Wish the hero could have been pared with someone else because he was a wonderful friend in the first book and deserved someone better in his story.
