    I Loved Every Page

    Richard Maitland is the second son of a Duke and dissatisfied with the way his life is. He loves his family but feels he is useless, just the spare. He has hidden the main part of his life from the "ton". Society believes him to be a rogue. Lady Evie Chesterfield is going to be just sixteen years old when her parents decide who she will marry. A friend of her brother tells her how to avoid the proposal. Years have gone by and Richard's reputation is worse, but Evie still insists on being his friend. A lovely and at times emotional view of what life was like just after the Napoleonic war. Maybe this is the start of learning just how much the lower classes do for everyone. A story of acceptance and discovery. It must surely shame the upper crust of the time into looking after those who gave everything for the good of Britain. I loved every page

    Loved it!

    'How to Marry A Marquess' by Stacy Reid is Book Three in The "Wedded by Scandal" series. This is the story of Evie Chesterfield and Richard Maitland. I have read (and Loved!) the other books in this series but feel this is easily a standalone book. Evie first met Richard when she was almost 16 years of age. Richard is her brother's friend but she had never met him until she sneaked out one night upset about her parents trying to marry her off to an older Duke. Richard happened upon her when she had been physically sick with upset about her parents plan. Richard and Evie hit is off after he told her how to turn the Duke's attention away from her. They both agreed they would be friends...which they did. Richard once thought himself in love and wanted to marry the lady but they lady in question had her heart set on a title. Richard at the time was a Second Son and had no such Title. Richard was heart broken and vowed to never marry. Richard does not trust or think that Love is true. Richard really likes Evie but she is the darling of the Town and of late even with a Title that he inherited he knows being something more that his frined would ruin her. In addition, he doesn't want to loose their friendship...but it hard to keep is desire for her to himself. I so love the friendship between Richard and Evie an how it slowly build into more. Richard for all his talk of not wanting to love he had a big heart for the less fortunate. This is a book you will not be able to put down!! Loved it! Wedded by Scandal:, Book 1: Accidentally Compromising the Duke, Book 2: Wicked in His Arms, Book 3: How to Marry a Marquess, "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    This is an amazing read and must not be missed!

    Evie, 16, and Richard, 24, meet as she’s throwing up in the garden during a house party. He boldly advises her how to withstand the unwanted pursuit of gentlemen her mother pushes her way. It is really quite inventive and I assure you you’ve not read this before in a romance. At least I haven’t. They immediately become friends and remain so for the next six years. During this time Richard’s life is turned upside down. He is soon traveling down a path he never anticipated and yet feels strongly about. When society scorns his decisions, Evie remains steadfast as his friend. This book has a lot of inroads that take you in different directions adding depth to the story as well as the characters. It is a rich, full story that deals with issues that were not only prevalent at the time but still has a message for society today. There is a scene that was actually extremely difficult to read because this author shades it with truth and grit. I hesitate to share much more of the plot due to its intricacies. However, I will say that it is well written, fast paced while giving plenty of details as to the internal conflicts both the hero and heroine are dealing with, intriguing, humorous, and steamy. Richard is a strong protective hero that is struggling with his past as well as his future while Evie is a bit naïve about what life outside her insulated bubble really entails. The evolution of both of their characters was at times angst filled but beautiful. I truly enjoyed this book and the lack of one star on my rating is due to the fact that I’m particular about my heroes being only with the heroine once they meet. I understand that is unrealistic, especially considering their age at the time they meet, but I live for the fantasy. Either way, I still cannot recommend this book enough to anyone who enjoys historical romances or anyone who is interested in trying one out. Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review Dual POV Safety issues – the hero is with other women after meeting the heroine but is celibate the year before they finally come together as a couple No apparent triggers

    Sweet, Sexy & Seductive!

    This was a wonderful friends to lovers story with vivid, engaging characters, a well-written plot that held my interest and richly detailed scenery that easily drew me into the "picture". The chemistry between Evie and Richard was undeniable, and the sexual tension fairly crackled off the pages. This novel fully satisfied my historical hankerings! *I received a complimentary ARC of this book from NetGalley & Entangled Publishing, LLC in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.

    This is a wonderful story of steadfast love, devot

    This is a wonderful story of steadfast love, devotion, and faith in one man and the man that is slow on the uptake. We have Lady Evelyn “Evie” Gladstone, daughter of an earl and the darling of the ton and Lord Richard George Maitland, the spare to the heir of the Duke of Salop. They meet when she is 16 and he is 24. They form an unusual friendship, in that they are of the opposite sex and they are not showing any signs of courting or marriage. They have an easy way about them, they are great confidantes to each other and they both feel complete and at ease in the other’s presence. Through the following six years: Richard is betrayed by a woman he thought he loved, he becomes the Marquess of Westfall after the untimely death of his brother, Evie uses some interesting tactics to dissuade would be proposals, and their friendship grows. Through the betrayal, Richard makes a decision that is frowned upon by the ton, becomes persona non-grata, is estranged from his family and becomes a man with a mission. This story is wonderfully written, we see the changes in Richard and they are not all for the better. At times, it reminded me of Beauty and the Beast and Evie has the touch to bring the beast around, if he would only stop and get out of his own way. He is so caught up in HIS mission that he fails to SEE Evie for the strong woman that she has grown into. The conversations are well done. This is the third in the Wedded by Scandal series and can be read as a standalone book. Ms. Reid has given us just enough information to make it a seamless story when mentioning the other book’s characters. The sprinkles of their friends are perfect in their ability to make Richard rethink his stance and in helping Evie to stand up for herself and what she wants in her life and her HEA. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey and I am looking forward to finding out about Richard’s sister, Phoebe. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
