  • Ooooo, what a deliciously sinful romance!

    If you thought Kitty was brave and daring in My Darling Duke, then you are not prepared for the very mischievous Maryann! The story starts with a delightful meet cute with a dash of revenge fantasy and just keeps getting better and better as the story progresses. Maryann is determined to avoid a forced marriage to an utterly abhorrent man, and she has no qualms about borrowing the scandalous reputation of a notorious rake. Nicolas, however, has carefully cultivated his rake status as a cover to investigate the affairs of the men who committed a horrible crime so that he can mete out whatever justice he can, in the style of the Count of Monte Cristo. This carefully crafted cat-and-mouse tale is superbly written, with both Maryann and Nicolas taking turns as the predator and the prey. Their banter appears effortless on the surface but there's an unmistakable current of honest emotion constantly flowing between them. It is this soulmate-level interplay that really sets this book above its contemporaries, and I absolutely loved every last bit of it. The secondary characters are also complex and multi-faceted, bringing surprising conflicts as well as shocking resolutions to the seemingly insurmountable obstacles. I was so happy to see the secondary romance get a solid HEA as well - any story that delivers two HEAs is an automatic winner in my book! Nicolas and Maryann have the kind of love that legends are made of, making this one of the most romantic stories I've read all year. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves historical romances, or just romance in general. It's truly one of a kind. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • Will Not Disappoint!

    Stacy Reid does not disappoint! Her Wicked Marquess is a deliciously romantic and captivatingly witty hard to put down book. It is the story of Nicolas St. Ives, the Marquess of Rothbury, who devotes his life to seeing justice is served for harm done to his friend. He comes across Miss MaryAnn Fitzwilliam, a wallflower, that is chatty, opinionated, and looking to be ruined. What do you get when you mix an extremely handsome lord with an understated beauty? It is pure dynamite! I would definitely recommend this book! I was given this book by Netgalley for an honest review. They in no way influenced my opinions.

  • Loved their banter

    Loved, loved, loved, loved this so much. I went through every emotion reading this one. The beginning was fun/funny, pulling off a prank on the tons mean girl and our couples introduction to each other. Maryann and Nicholas have great banter. Miss Maryann Fitzwilliam is not the usual lady of the ton. She has an opinion and she's not afraid to give it. This has made finding a husband impossible. Her parents have arranged for her to marry a man almost as old as her father. So she decides to do something sinful to get out of the arrangement. The next morning when the scandal sheet reports seeing Nicolas Ives climbing out of the chamber windows of a house party, Maryann does something unimaginable. She claims that the bedchamber belonged to her, hoping it is enough to end the unwanted union her family has pushed her into. The Marquess of Rothbury has intentionally created the wicked reputation he presents to society in order to grow closer to men who hurt someone he loved. When he hears the rumor Maryann is spreading, his plan is to ignore her, even though he is drawn to her. Because the last thing he wants is for his enemies to think he has a weakness. Thanks so much to Stacy Reid, Entangled, and NetGalley for this ARC to review.

  • A must read! Loved!

    “You speak your thoughts so boldly. Is there nothing you are afraid of?” “I am afraid of years from now looking back on my life and feeling the keenest of regret that I had not lived. Of never feeling again the way I feel with you.” Revenge…that one constant thirst for revenge against those that caused harm to his first love is what has shaped Nicholas Ives, the Marquess of Rothbury, into the man he is today. Nicholas is playing the long game in his quest for vengeance, and in doing so, has developed quite the reputation for being a rake throughout the ton. This reputation is the very thing that has kept the eyes of those he means to ruin off his plan for retaliation…but when bumps into an intriguing “wallflower” by the name of Maryann FitzWilliam, Nicholas begins to wonder if he’s finally met someone who can bring life back to his long dead soul…if he’s ready to remove the mask and set aside his vengeance and replace it with a love worth forgiveness… Miss Maryann FitzWilliam will not be forced to wed the odious man her parents have picked. Devising a plan with her fellow “wallflowers”, Maryann plots to be most sinful and starts a rumor that she was the innocent that the rakish Marquess of Rothbury stole kisses from after sneaking into her bedroom window. With the ton spreading the rumor, Maryann is confident that she will be free to live her life without the constraints of a husband. But the one thing Maryann hadn’t counted on was the Marquess actually sneaking into her bedroom…or the intense feelings she would develop for him… Nicholas and Maryann’s story is a slow burn romance, and dearest reader, I so very much loved it! Heartfelt at times, soul crushing at others and so verra verra smexxy, Her Wicked Marquess is a must read for fans of this genre! Loved and highly recommend! **I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. **

  • Brilliant

    Maryann is determined to avoid marriage. Especially to the man her parents have chosen—a cold-hearted earl of her father's age. She starts a rumor that she's been ruined by Nicolas, Marquess of Rothbury, knowing the notorious rake won't marry her to save her reputation. Nicolas has spent years cultivating the facade of being a rake. It helps him hide his scheme to punish the men who brutalized a young maid he once loved. He admires Maryann for her spirit, cleverness, and daring. Yet he suspects her brother may have been involved in the crime he seeks to avenge. I loved these characters. They're vibrant and determined, yet willing to learn from their mistakes. The story never flags—the plot is well-paced and intriguing. The tension is high. The tone is more sensual than romantic, and the love scenes are scorching. Tropes include Revenge, Reformed Rake, and Woman in Jeopardy. Stacy Reid is a brilliant storyteller. Thanks, Booksprout, for the opportunity to read this ARC.
