4 Estrellitas muy bien merecidas. Éste libro sí es un 100% Quinn. Me he reído muchísimo, me ha enganchado mucho, sus personajes han sido divertidos, y en general la relación de todos ha estado muy lograda.

Cuando leí "Cómo atrapar a una heredera" me quedé con muchísimas ganas de conocer la historia de James y no me ha decepcionado. Lo mejor de "Cómo casarse con un marqués" fue descubrir que el gran personaje secundario de éste libro, y que juega un papel muy, muy importante, es nada más y nada m

Very cute romance.....up until James' true identity was revealed. Then our funny & charming heroine turned into an annoying irrational priss. It was bad enough to make me demote this from 3 to 2 stars (if I could, I'd do 1.5). Elizabeth is desperate enough to marry for money, but suddenly too good to accept money from James. Even if it meant comfort for her siblings and the much needed education for her brother. And even to refuse marriage (or any common sense) from the Marquis who kept tryi ...more

Historical romance - 3.5 stars!

Sweet and fun!

"Are you paying attention or just trying to make me look like an idiot?"
"Oh, I'm definately paying attention. If you look like an idiot it has nothing to do with me."

"He looks like a man."
"How descriptive," Susan said in a droll tone. "Remind me never to advise you to seek work as a novelist."

(Edited: spoiler deleted scene - copied from JQ's website - at the end of this review. Another lovely epilogue)

I have no doubt that Julia Quinn is the queen of historical romance to me. This book gave me a great time (I was ill when I read this). It had quite a simple and common story with predictable plot and yet I ended up loving it. Tons of laughter guaranteed!

Precioso, desde la primera hasta la ultima pagina. A pesar de que al final ella se torna demasiado orgullosa, aunque en parte la entiendo que enterarse de la verdad de esa forma hiciera que mandará a paseo a James.
Divertido, de lectura ágil y con unos personajes tanto secundarios como principales (adoro a James, es un amor) encantadores, es un final de serie de broche de oro.
Cute. I liked this way more than the first.

I love Lady Danbury and her adorable, moody cat, Malcolm.

The couple was cute too, but they (mainly the girl) got rather annoying in the last 15-20%. She was far too prideful, and he just made the mistake of having bad timing. Agh - not a fan of the misunderstanding trope.

I liked that Elizabeth worked so hard to take care of her 3 younger siblings on her own. It was touching. On the other hand, James was sweet and pretty straightforward considering. Then

Just when me and my friends were complaining about the plateau plots of HR's lately, I come across an unread Julia Quinn and then, BAM, I take it back. I take it all back! There is hope as long as we have such books in our lives.

I enjoyed the first half of the Bridgertons series, I loved loved loved all the characters and how their stories were brilliantly written. I did not however enjoy the last few, as well as the SS Quartet so instead of tainting my thoughts on Ms. Quinn's writing I stopped

"How To" isn't going to broaden any horizons or make you think outside of the box. What it will do is help pass a rainy day or make you forget how hot you really are as you're laying by the pool... What a splendid and light hearted story this was, and if cheese was indeed a liquid it would absolutely drip from this book...


I just love how this oh so famous author can still make me laugh out loud while I reread the page two and three times just to laugh again. She has perfected one of my all

i feel horrid to say that i found this book to be a HUGE dissapointment and far below my expectations if one could imagine :/


i loved the idea of the plot,but for some reason i felt almost the 1st half the book just drag,while the second half speed by with just fighting,screaming and dissapointments...

For the first time (in my long reading life ! ) I found myself unable to even LIKE ms.quinn's characters while struggling to finish the book..

A sad day indeed :(

After the lack luster hero in Julia Quinn's Ten Things I Love About You and the bubble head heroine in JQ's To Catch an Heiress, it was a refreshing change to read a JQ book where I actually really liked both the hero and the heroine. Not a bad place to start.

I consider myself a great historical romance fan. After growing out of Barbara Cartland and working my way through all the slightly outdated 1970's Corgi and Avon Historical romances which were the only books available during those pre-internet days, and every single Historical Georgette Heyer of course, I discovered Julia Quinn and Eloisa James. Eloisa James annoyed me because the way she wrote her stories felt so wrong, her books read like modern romances set in historical periods, very irrita ...more

Adorable, as always! And, even better, there is plenty of evil-cat humor - my favorite!

She looked down. Malcolm, the demon cat was sitting at her feet, staring at her as if she were a kitchen rat.
"What do you want?"
The cat shrugged. Elizabeth hadn't known that a cat could shrug.

Uppity cats!

So, this book is about James, the Marquis from the last book, bff of Devin. He is an awesome love interest! He comes to help his aunt because she is being blackmailed, and in so doing, he meets hi

This past few days I’m kinda feeling blue and can’t see myself picking another book to read. And I’m feeling that I might be experiencing a “book slump.” And I don’t want that so I willed myself to pick any book. This one immediately popped into my mind. And I’m glad that I did because this is exactly what I needed. I loved so many things about the book right from the very first page itself. There is so much humor packed into this story that I swears I couldn’t help but laugh out loud several ti

Another fun and humorous book by Julia Quinn! Once again, I loved all the characters. I seriously cannot find fault in the hero or heroine--I thought they were both lovely, charming, and witty. I also adored the siblings of the Hotchkiss clan--their interactions were so cute. I just find that JQ puts a smile on my face and makes my worries go away for awhile. I absolutely love her books and I'm so happy that I loved this one as much as I do the Bridgerton series. And..... I was so HAPPY that Lad ...more

Cuando leí la primera parte de esta serie tenía la esperanza de que la continuación fuera mejor. Y si, fue mejor. Mucho, mucho mejor. Ésta es la Julia Quinn que adoro, la que escribe esas novelas que serían un placer culposo si no fuera porque no siento absolutamente ninguna culpa al leerlos. Son libros divertidos, con humor inteligente y personajes completamente queribles.

Maybe it's because the series was consisted only by two books, but this time I didn't fall into that trap of liking the hero of the current book I read as the series progresses. This time, I realize, I loved the both men. The first book hero, Blake Ravenscroft, was the perfect brooding man, the great grouchy husband, whereas this book's hero, James Sidwell, was the perfect, well, opposite. He was charming and playful and quite the rake, he was like his old self from the previous book. This is on ...more
This is the cutest book ever written! I'm not sure what I love more. Was it the humor (Oh. My. God. My stomach still aches) or maybe it was the H/Hr. It might have been the supporting characters or it could have been the writing. Actually, it was probably all of these things.
We have our heroine, Elisabeth Hotchkiss, who is raising four younger siblings with dwindling funds. After much calculating it becomes clear to Elisabeth that she doesn't have much of a choice but to marry. Ironica
Was totally prepared to give this an unexciting 'meh' 3 stars but the silly melodramatic drama and dunderhead of a heroine made it hard to even do that. Elizabeth Hotchkiss is the biggest drama queen imaginable who loved to blow the smallest things waaaaay out of proportion. This girl should have taken a job in theater cause everything is either mortifying, humiliating or absolutely horrifying to her. She's also a total ditzy klutz who can't even stand still without causing bodily harm, tripping ...more

Elizabeth and James are SO CUTE! I think I said most of what I wanted to say below, but Lady Danbury seriously rocks! :) I love reading books with her in them!

I REALLY liked this book. The premise: Elizabeth, whose parents have died, is responsible for taking care of her 3 youngers siblings (her 8-year-old brother is a baronet, albeit a poor one). She's earning "minimum wage" as Lady Danbury's country companion, but it's still VERY difficult to feed and clothe 4 peo

Have you read this book? No? Go read it and come back and read this review after.

I think I'm going to have to redo my all time favorite book list and put this in it. I laughed and cried and was swept away in their romance. It was perfect.

I enjoyed this book so much!

But why I didn't give this more than 3 stars? Well, mostly because I was expecting a lot of drama when the moment of truth comes up, yet.. I didn't really feel it. But overall reading this book reminds me a lot of the nostalgia that I always felt when i read Julia Quinn's books. It got me addicted all over again!

This was the first book I read by this author. It was long ago – the book was published in 1999 – but it was a marvelous introduction. Ever since this book, I have been buying Julia Quinn’s regency romances as soon as they came out. I enjoyed most of them but I approached the re-reading of this novel with trepidation. What if it didn’t live up to my memories? I shouldn’t have worried. How to Marry a Marquis was as good at re-reading as I remembered.

I must say that I give this book a 4.5
This book was wonderful but I have such high standerds and this just barely missed the mark.

The only reason I even picked up this book was because I read To catch an heiress and that was my very first Julia Quinn novel, and I LOVED the story. The characters were humorous and I only read this book in the begining because I wanted to be able to read about Blake and Caroline again.

Yes, they made an appearence in this book and they brought their comical twists

My review of How to Marry a Marquis could easily be an ode to Lady Danbury, who is one of my favorite side characters EVER. <--- No exaggeration. Lady Danbury, though she makes her introduction here, is in many of the Bridgerton and Smythe-Smith books. She is outspoken. She is crafty. She is everything I want to be when I grow up.

(Especially the lady in regency England part. Because that can happen!)

But what about James and Elizabeth? I suppose I should talk about
