This series is about a family with an extraordinary gift that gets passed down from generation to generation. I have to admit that I have not read any of the other books in the series – mostly because when I look at the reviews, they all say something about ‘needing a box of tissues’ or being heartbreaking. I just haven’t been in the mood to have my heart broken, so I haven’t read the books. But – who can NOT read a Madeline Martin book? Not me

I am mesmerized! This is an amazing story that kept me going until the end. I could not put this book down. There is so much heartbreak but also so much joy. The description of the war made me cry. What Helen discovered also made me cry. But in a good way. This story is definitely very emotional. And at the end, there is a twist I didn't see coming. Well written, Ms. Martin! I highly recommend you all go and get mesmerized as well! ...more

I really enjoyed Mesmerizing the Marquis by Madeline Martin. I am always up for a book where one or more of the characters have supernatural abilities and this one did not disappoint. The story is beautifully written and full of emotion. Both the hero and heroine endured a lot and were incredibly captivating. I adored Helen and Noah. The story was unpredictable and I was taken by surprise more than once. I am a big fan of Madeline Martin’s writing and she continues to mesmerize me with every sto ...more

This book was definitely mesmerizing to be sure! It was impossible to put down once I started it. I think this may be my favorite Madeline Martin story to date, though it is difficult to make such a bold statement since all of her books have been so wonderful. There was just something about this story that got to me. Both Noah Haskett, the Marquis of Hesterton and Helen Craig, a wealthy single woman, meet when Noah saves Helen from a runaway carriage. They are both lonely people who have suffere ...more

Mesmerizing the Marquis book 11 Enduring Legacy by Madeline Martin. A wonderful story of two people letting go of the past and embracing the present. In the process falling in love with each other. My free opinion. Thanks.

As I turned the last page, all I could do was sigh knowing that I had truly been mesmerized by this story. Two people who were having a hard time navigating through life until they met each other. Could that really happen? A true soulmate who understood the other and had the compassion and foresight to see what each other needed? Beautifully written and full of emotions with a mystery that comes full circle in the end when least expected.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Mesmerizing the Marquis by Madeline Martin is book 11 in the Enduring Legacy series. This is the story of Helen Craig and Noah Haskett, the Marquis of Hesterton. I haven't yet read the previous books, so for me this was easily a standalone book.
Helen has always had the gift to see the future, but it wasn't a welcoming gift with her family. They ridiculed her so much and made threats that she tries to keep it hidden. When she is saved by Noah it her first feeling of a calming she has had but sh

Whilst each book in the series can be read on its own, there is the theme of the descendants of the family with special powers in each book hence The Enduring Legacy.
So far I’ve only read half of the books but have the others waiting to be read. I’ve found myself taken on a roller coaster of emotions with each book so have needed time in between each one & sometimes more than a week

I am such a big fan of Madeline Martin books. She is such an amazing author and woman, I can never put her books down once i start them. They suck you into the story and you just cannot put it down until you get to the end.

She is such a wonderful creative author. I love this type of writing where you are reading about historic men and women and the romance to go along with it. Just absolutely amazing.

This had it all for me, twists, suspense, romance that builds slowly, and lovemaking, swoon wort

Mesmerizing the Marquis by Madeline Martin is the eleventh book in the multi-author series Enduring Legacy, stories that weave an everlasting spell. Martin is hands down one of my very favorite authors. I have never read a book that I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed and this one is no exception.

This book proves how talented a writer Ms Martin is. This was very different from her usual and I found it quite engaging. The characters each had their own “flaws” and the way they were written, you could feel their pain. This book had all the suspense, mystery, adventure and romance to keep you reading. Although I don’t usually read paranormal, this book had just enough to keep me interested. There were a few sex scenes in it and this reviewer skipped them as usual but it didn’t affect my enjo ...more

I loved the story, from the time period, to the ability that Helen has to see both the past and the future just by touching. Also enjoyed the steamy scenes too. glad to have cold water, ice melted, nearby.

Noah and Helen have stolen my heart! I loved this book so much. I was stealing every moment I could to read. I didn’t want to put it down. I loved that they broke all the rules and that they had such fabulous family there to help them along. I couldn’t love this book more if I tried. I give this a country night sky full of stars rating because five just doesn’t cut it!

I very much enjoyed the story of Helen and Noah. If anybody needed the other, it was these two. Both wounded and hiding secrets and hating to be out in society for various reasons.

I was glad it was also about the soldiers and the trauma they endure on the battlefields, although this was about Napoleon's war, it's still the case for all wars, so it was great that she made this subject a big part of the book.

Noah and Helen both healed each other. It's a story of love, friendship, acceptance and

I received this book in return for an honest review.
I really thoroughly enjoyed reading Mesmerizing the Marquis. The 'who could it be' mystery and finding the truth out about his brother gave the story just enough twist and turns that it kept me interested through the whole book. It made me sad that Helen didn't enjoy her 'gift' and that Noah felt ashamed of his disability but felt that they both complimented each other well.

What is better than a historical romance? A historical regency romance with a mystery and paranormal. Mesmerizing the Marquis by Madeline Martin is book 11 of the Enduring Legacy series. Each book in this series is written by a different author and can be read as a standalone. I have read all of Madeline’s books and have enjoyed everyone but I thinks that Mesmerizing the Marquis is some of her best writing to date. The ending took me so much by surprise, I never saw it coming. Madeline has a way ...more

This is an extremely wonderful book. I couldn't put it down. Madeline helps you travel without leaving. So detailed that you feel you're right there.

This story was so entertaining. I loved it because it was a bit different from the norm - though had the obligatory HEA. A real pleasure to read. 5☆
DNF at 25%. I found the characters likable and engaging. The plot was interesting. I was turned off by grammar—chiefly the misuse of words. I kept getting popped out of the story. It's the literary equivalent to driving over potholes. Jarring. There were so many, I decided it wasn’t worth it to continue down this road. Unfortunate. I think that with some judicious editing, this could be a good read. ...more
