The wrong place…
Elodie Parrish can feel spinsterhood breathing down her neck. That’s the trouble with waiting for the marquess next door her entire life. But Ellie knows if she gives him one last Season, he’ll finally propose. The only problem is, her path keeps crossing with the arrogant Lord Hullworth, who is convinced she has designs on him.
The wrong time…
Brandon, Marquess of Hullworth, never wanted to be “London’s Most Elusive Bachelor,” or have a horde of hopeful debutantes and their scheming mamas follow him around. His past has left him too jaded to consider marrying any of them. At least, that’s what he thinks… until he meets Ellie. She’s quirky, opinionated, blushes easily, and drives him absolutely wild. The only problem is, she believes she’s in love with someone else.
Ellie never imagined that one sultry summer could change everything. But the more time she spends with Brandon researching her book on the mating habits of scoundrels, the more she wonders if she might be falling for…
The Wrong Marquess
The Wrong Marquess by Vivienne Lorret is an engaging historical romance. A woman has her hopes set on a friend she has known since they were kids. However, she is getting tired of waiting on his proposal. He promises to propose. Ellie ends up running into another man. One that makes her feel frustrated. Ellie cannot help but think about the most exclusive bachelor. The bachelor who was hurt does not believe any lady. Especially, one like Ellie. He believes she has a hidden agenda. But the more time they spend together the more he knows that is not true. Ellie falls for him. Then there is her childhood friend who turns into an unrecognizable man. A man Ellie does not want to know anymore. This plot was intriguing, charming, and hilarious. I love the banters between characters. The heroine is just as strong and determined as the hero. They are a perfect match. Vivienne Lorret writes the type of romance novels that are easy to love. These characters are three-dimensional and realistic. I wish books like this one can be a movie. Overall, it is action-paced and brilliant.
