    The heart often does not recognize what it wants. Especially when it involves two young people who are being pushed together by their parents to marry. Roger, the Marquess of Chatton had taken off to avoid that marriage but ended up with another wife, Arabelle, who was truly not a good match. After her death he comes back home, where his neighbor Fenella, who he did not marry comes home as well. Fenella had grown up with a verbally abusive father and had run to her granfmother's in Scotland and become a stronger person. Now when Roger sees her he cannot believe how she has changed and speaks her mind. Of course there is a matchmaker in the mix and it is a journey on the road to a happy ending. Can these two childhood neighbors now find they are attracted to each other and find happiness? A delightful story with some suspense and sweet kisses that will keep your attention until the end.

    Their second chance at love

    As it is my first read by Mrs Jane Ashford (I know, I say it every day), and the third in a series, the prologue introduced the hero but also the two from the previous installment so I do believe the prologue is adjusted depending the hero but is nearly the same and the Earl of Macklin acts as a soul healer and matchmaker. Fenella has always admired Roger from afar as a child but when their father join together to marry them, she ran away to avoid their scheming plan and him. She has always been shy and reserved and how could she not be, under the verbal abuse and ill treatment of her father, even if it was not physical, he continually belittled her because she was born a girl. Gladly under her grandmother’s care she grew a spine and become who she was meant to be. Roger Berwick, the Marquess of Chatton thought he has all he ever wanted in front of him, until his father summoned him to marry his neighbor’s daughter. Such a spoiled and conceited brat he was at that time, and still, for sure it comes with the tittle. Until his selfish personality drove him in the right place and finds him leg shackled to a beautiful but unsuitable bride. When this same bride gave a final breath, the best he could do was to charge others and Fenella especially. I admire Fenella, she could have become bitter and resentful when she is only acceptance, patience and kindness. I doubted at time that Roger deserved her affection. The author crafted a very genuine tale of second chance when life could have simply torn them apart. Roger after his failure of first marriage at the beginning avoid society, he bears the guilt of it but can’t accept his own fault, why he put the blame on others and in the way hurt Fenella more. He felt twice guilty, for failing his wife but also being attracted to the bride-to-be he rejected years ago. So when in close proximity and because Fenella showed no sign of resentment, he got to know the true character of the young woman he disparaged in his youth. He has work in front of him to earn her respect and at time, the spoiler child in him resurfaces. I was so angry on Fenella’s behalf, how a fool and egotistical was her father, I hurt for her how everyone in her family ill treated her, but still she did not bend, she ponders every aspects of her situation before acting, she is a true strong woman, doing with what life throws on her way. This story ringed true, life is not fair, not every vilain gets its right reward, but tiny things and believing in what is good can alter too the course of life. I was provided an advance copy thanks to Netgalley and the publisher Sourcebooks Casablanca but I purchased my own copy. This is my true and unbiased opinion.

    Fantastic Historical Romance

    How To Cross A Marquess is a fabulous historical romance by Jane Ashford. Ms. Ashford has provided readers with a well-written book packed with an outstanding cast of characters. Roger, Marquess of Chatton, has lost his wife and blames the neighbor he grew up with. Fenella had a crush on Roger growing up, but when their parents tried to force marriage on them she escaped to Scotland to her grandmother and stayed for years. Roger and Fenella's story is loaded with drama, humor, spice, action and suspense. I enjoyed every page of this book and look forward to reading more from Jane Ashford in the future. How To Cross A Marquess is book 3 of The Way To A Lord's Heart Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
