    great book

    Oliver Weeks, Marquess of Davenport, after his father had died, they found he had lost everything. He and his mother were destitute. So the mothers, his and Harriet's decided that they marry. He would get her substantial dowry and she would have a husband. But Davenport told her"I don't want you and I don't want your money". He hurt her badly. Six years later, he is rich and she is still unmarried. His mother tells him he needs a wife and she talks him into going to a ball. He had a bad accident and now has a limp and uses a cane. The characters are fully developed, argumentive and has bad feelings when he tries to convince her to marry him. He had his chance and blew it. She keeps telling him, no but he is persistent. The storyline is fun and they banter back and forth. There also are some twists. The author wrote a well balanced, even paced and interesting tale. I really enjoy this book and found it drawing my attention and keeping it there until the end. I received this ARC from Net Galley and voluntarily reviewed it.

    Loved this story

    I read the first book in this series and was excited to read this one. I was not disappointed and loved revisiting with this quirky group of ladies who formed the Ladies of Virtue with Harriet Wheatley, the heroine, being one of the founders. Harriet leads a campaign to rehabilitate the gentlemen of the ton in whatever their vice might be. She chooses, Oliver Weeks, Marquess of Davenport to stop him from wasting money and give to charitable endeavors! Of course she and Oliver had a past that she could not forgive. Her mother had the idea that she and Oliver should marry because she had funds he desperately needed to repair his holdings that his father had gambled away. He rejected her badly because he was determined to restore the family wealth on his own. Now six years later, as Harriet tries to talk to him about his spending habits, he asks her to help him find a wife. What is up with that? Oliver was a wounded man due to having had a bad fall years ago and walked with a cane. As the two interacted, some surprising emotions come out for both of them and the game was on. I loved the interaction between these two. I just never knew what was going to happen next. This was really a very entertaining story and I cannot wait until the next in the series!! This can be read as a standalone.

    Not " everyone's little sister "

    Oliver, Lord Davenport has been thrown at Lady Harriet. He walks with a cane and has no fortune. She is considered everybody's little sister and has not had any offers. He rejects her totally. He comes back to London after several years and thinks Harriet is beautiful, but she can't believe anything he says after the set down he has given her. He asks Harriet to play matchmaker and find him a bride.. There's no one but Harriet for him. While at a house party, he meets his formally betrothed who left him after he had his accident. Harriet sees her and leaves the room. Oliver comprises Harriet so she will have to marry her. She realizes that she has fallen in love with him but he has told her that he will never fall in love. Harriet is gone and he cannot find her. Has she left him? Will he be able to win her back? Great story with a wonderful ending. I received this book from Net Galley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for a honest review and no compensation otherwise.

    Enjoyable read!

    THE MARQUESS AND THE MAIDEN by ROBYN DEHART is book 2 in her "Lord's Vice" series, but cam br read as a stand alone. A steady paved, quick and fun read. Well written although. I wanted to learn more of the Ladies of Virtue a mysterious, crime fighting team composed of women, including Harriet, our heroine.  Follow, Harriet Wheatley, one of the Ladies of Virtue and Oliver Weeks, Marquess of Davenport, on their adventure to love, and finding a HEA. Ms. Dehart has a way with her character conceptions, her development, her execution of the romance, mystery with a bit of humor and wit. I did feel, the ending was a bit abrupt,  and left a few unanswered questions, hopefully, leading into the next book. Overall, a really great book with charming characters and an enjoyable and entertaining storyline.  #NetGalley,#TheMarquessandtheMaiden "I voluntarily received a complimentary copy, however,  these are my honest opinions. I was in no way required nor compensated to write a review." Rating: 4 Heat rating: Mild  Reviewer: AprilR

    Second Chances

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. The Marquess and the Maiden by Robyn DeHart is the second book in her Lords of Vice series but each book is written to be a stand-alone. The Entangled:Scandalous imprint of which this novella is under features Alpha Heroes, Confident and Unconventional Heroines and lots of sexual tension. Five years ago Oliver Weeks, Marquess of Davenport was broke, permanently injured, and had recently been dumped by the woman he planned to marry. So when his mother and her best friend propose that he marry, the best friends daughter Lady Harriet Wheatley whom he’s known all his life, as her dowry will bail him out of the financial trouble created by his father, he very bluntly says no. Present day he’s restored the family fortune on his own and is ready to marry, Harriet catches his eye as really the only woman he wants, but too bad for him because she’s having none of it. Quite Steamy. Publishing Date September 10, 2018 #TheMarquessandtheMaiden #NetGalley
