The son of a duke and an infamous mother, Alistair Mabry, Marquess of Rexton, fought his way to respectability. Now, the most eligible bachelor in London, marriage-shy Rexton will take only a wife with an impeccable reputation, good breeding, and a penchant for staying out of the gossip sheets. But when he strikes a deal to be seen "courting" a sweet young debutante whose notorious older sister has blemished her chances for marriage, Rexton is unexpectedly drawn to the highly inappropriate, calamitous Tillie, Lady Landsdowne herself.

After a scandalous incident that sent shockwaves throughout society and disgraced her, Tillie refuses to cower in the face of the ton. Instead, she will hold her head high as she serves as chaperone for her younger sister, but Tillie is convinced Rexton's courtship is shrouded with secrets--ones she vows to uncover. However, doing so requires getting dangerously close to the devilishly handsome and forbidden marquess...

I really enjoyed this book

Jun 28, 2017

The heroine in this story is an American who went to England to marry a title as many American girls did at the time. She fell in love with an Earl. Obviously this man showed her only one side of his personality . As soon as he had her huge dowry in his possession, he left her in the country with his disapproving mother and went back to his mistress. After three years of this horrible marriage and many requests for divorce, she caused a scandal. She gained her freedom but lost her place in society.

The telling of the story is very subtle but readers of historical novels know that women became the property of their husbands upon marriage. I try to put myself in that situation and feel I would have to do as the heroine did. She paid a high price.
