Publisher Description

Beth Howell needs to find her dowry, post haste. After her good-for-nothing first husband married her—and two other women, unbeknownst to them all—she’s left financially ruined and relegated to living with her brother, who cares more for his horses than he does his blood relatives. If Beth fails to acquire her funds, her brother will force her to marry someone fifty years her senior and missing half his teeth. She’d prefer to avoid that dreadful fate. But her now-deceased husband, Meri, absconded with her money mere days after their illegitimate marriage. To find it, Beth will have to leave town and retrace Meri’s steps if she’s to take her future into her own hands.

Julian Raleah, Marquess of Grayson, cares not a whit for social norms and generally growls at anyone in his path. Grayson has had a heart of stone ever since his engagement to Beth Howell went down in flames—long before she married that cad, Meri, and sealed her own fate for good. But now she’s on his doorstep, asking for use of his carriage and accompaniment on the hunt to find her lost dowry. Surely Grayson cannot go on the road with the woman who has occupied his thoughts for the past decade. Yet, knowing she needs him, how can he resist helping her this one last time? And maybe that’s just enough time to change the ending to their over-too-soon love story.

Nice twist to find their HEA

The saga continues with the third not legally married wife of Lord Meriwether. The first two wives founded their HEA and Meri had left them something, but Beth has become an outcast of polite society. Not even a shilling was left to her! Her brother is also in a financial upheaval and is planning to marry her off to someone that could be her grandfather. Her only option is to follow the trail of receipts that Meri had left behind at his untimely death and hopefully find her dowry. With really no choice to save the little reputation she has left, she pleads with her former boyfriend, the man she hoped to marry to escort her.
Julian is barely making ends meet. As an inventor of a steam engine any extra shillings go into his steam engine, knowing one day it will pay off. When the first and only women he had loved asks him for an escort to find her missing dowry he can’t say no. Even though he doubts that there be any funds left and he is sure he will be tempted by Beth and hoping for a second chance to win her love back.
A well pace written story, determined strongly opinionated women and a man who is honored bond to the love of his life. Easy on the the steamy side, nice twist in finding their HEA. Thank you NetGalley for this eARC. I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an Advance Reader Copy of this story. #NetGalley #HowToBestAMarquess
