The Commoner and The Marquess🐺🍆⛲

A surprisingly different Adult Historical Romance💕 with Fake Romance and an Abduction💔 and Rescue.

Cecelia💃💋, the young woman this book is about, is a skilled furniture maker and designer, taught the trade by her widowed father.

The young Marquess, Nicholas🐺🍆⛲, is interested in the type of young woman who can do things for herself. He doesn't want some fluttering ton damsel who relies on servants for everything.

Olivia Bennet's "The Marquess in Her Bed" was predictable and poorly written, much as her last several books have been. Her first few books showed promise, but in my opinion her writing has really gone downhill since then. All of her recent books seem to involve an "insta-love" plot, and I'm starting to think she doesn't know how to write anything else. It would be nice to see some kind of relationship development between the main characters so that I can actually believe in their HEA!

It's pretty good. It was kind of predictable and the characters were not terribly well-developed. There were a lot of characters, but many seemed to only serve the purpose of supporting the interests of other characters. I suppose it's to be expected that characters are there to serve the purpose of story progression, but this was different. They did not necessarily help the story to progress so much as they served as foils to allow the main characters to pursue their interests.

The Marquess in Her Bed by Olivia Bennet is the love story between Cecelia Baxter, a furniture maker, and Nicholas Lymington, the son and her to a Duke. She was the most interesting woman he had even met. He had about given up on women being anything but dull and he was immediately attracted, rank not withstanding. His mother was after him to marry and so took him to visit Lady Annette, the daughter of a nearby Earl and between them they cooked up a plot to pretend to be courting so their parent ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book. Reading from page to page went smoothly at a moderate pace. It kept my attention because of the attraction and chemistry between the H/h. The heroine's character, Cecilia Baxter, had a sweet yet determined personality. She was able to compartmentalize her feelings because of her work as a carpenter. When working with the carpentry machines one must concentrate and not be distracted. Otherwise it would cause injury. The only thing that kept her from being an id ...more

Love at first sight - will it endure?

Wonderfully written book with well developed and complex characters. Love story between 2 people of very different social standings - a scandal in the making. Romance is in the air and so is the opposition. Intrigue, manipulations, insecurities, loyalties, kidnapping, friendships, and an unexpected twist giving the story an additional and wonderful oomph. Facing so many obstacles from close to home, will the young lovers survive their unending trials? A mus

This is the story of Nicholas & Cecelia. Nicholas will inherit the Dukedom. Cecelia is the daughter of a carpenter, which she is one herself. Neither think that they will ever marry. They are attracted to each other. Nicholas' mom, The Duchess, tries to do everything in her power to stop the relationship which will end in marriage. There is a twist to this story which you could not imagine. There are secondary characters in this story, also. It is well written, easy to follow and ends up hap ...more

Nothing like a noble mother on the hunt for a suitable wife for her son! Spare me! Lol! I think Archie had ulterior motives with his "advice" to Cece! Geez. Buzz off boy! I liked the comraderie between Izzy and Nick ! Everytime there was a conversation with the duchess I literally cringed with apprehension! That vermin! I could hardly swallow the filth the duchess spat at Cece! Izzy was a great ally to Cece. It was good to see the old viper (the duchess) lost some if her bite by the story's end. ...more

This romance revolves around a Marquess and a carpenter’s daughter. The attraction between Nicholas and Cecilia is instant and not what his mother wants for the future Duke. There are two instances that almost break them apart but in the end love wins out. This is a well written love story that would be appropriate for any age group. This is as clean of a love story as you will find. I would recommend it as a good read.

Recommends it for: anyone who loves regency romance and intrigue.
Cecilia is the daughter of a carpenter and helps him in his trade. They meet when Nicholas comes to their shop to purchase furniture for his mother. Despite their class differences, they fall in love. His mother does not approve and works to end their association. Can their love last and overcome all the obstacles put in their way?

Nikolas & Cecelia aka Cece's story was inspiring. As a duke, he has always known of his responsabilities. She grew up independent, and loving her proffesion. When they meet all rules of propriety & social behaviour go out the window. Determined to be together they will defied all the odds. Highly Recommend. Happy Reading!

The plot was nothing special and neither was the dialogue. The characters weren't developed enough and I must have read a 100 books like this, certainly not with the same plot line but close enough, to make the book completely predictable. I kept waiting for something to develop to make the book noteworthy but I was sorely disappointed. Sorry Olivia better luck next time!

Olivia has done it again. Starting with her cover I loved this book. Nicholas and Cecelia are from different worlds but their attraction is immediate. This storyline has danger and romance. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in a good read. I received this ARC in exchange for a voluntary honest review which I have freely written here

A mother determined to have her way is the obstacle that Cecilia, the daughter of a carpenter, and Nicholas, a Marquess, have to overcome as they find that the feelings that they have for each other makes it all irrelevant.
