The Wild Marquis by Miranda Neville

Read For:
ROR Summer Challenge
RYOB Challenge


The Marquis of Chase is not a reputable man.
He is notorious for his wretched morals and is never received in respectable houses. The ladies of the ton would never allow him in their drawing rooms . . . though they were more than willing to welcome him into their bedchambers. Ejected from his father's house at the age of sixteen, he now lives a life of wanton pleasure. So what could the Marquis of Chase possibly want with Juliana Merton, a lovely, perfectly upstanding shopkeeper with a mysterious past?
A moment's indiscretion?
A night's passion?
Or a lifetime of love?
Even the wildest rakes have their weaknesses . . .

My Review:

I loved this book! The characters are well fleshed out, three dimensional and not "cookie cutter". I love the concept of the storyline-of "bibliomania" a group of avid rare book collectors, their race to get the books they want, and what shocking secrets they learn along the way in relation to those books and their lives. Both the hero and heroine are "scarred" in one way or another-both being raised in very dysfunctional homes. That didn't stop them from being caring people. The love scenes are pretty hot-at least a "R" rating.

I recommend this book and look forward to more from this smart and savvy author. 5 stars!
