Publisher Description

She is on the verge of losing everything

To save her home and keep her two younger siblings safe, Louisa Evans must turn to the head of the family that ruined hers.

He needs an heir

The Marquess of Overlea is starting to show signs of having inherited the same illness that killed his father and older brother. To prevent the marquisate from falling into the hands of an unscrupulous cousin, Overlea must secure an heir before that illness also claims him.

But he is determined not to be the father of that heir

Overlea’s plan is simple—marry the practical, yet desperate, Miss Evans and hold Louisa to her promise to provide him with an heir. But he waits until after they are married to tell his wife that he intends to have another man father that heir. His careful plan becomes complicated by an almost desperate need to claim Louisa for himself and an outside threat that proves even more dangerous than his illness.

Loving the Marquess

A good read for isolation, especially during the stay at home order. Escapism to a different time and different social mores helps one to forget the dangers we currently face outside our homes. The story of Nicholas and Louisa’s love and difficulties makes one envy the simpler life and problems associated with poisonings and murder within a manor home and greedy family members who covet title and riches.
I do recommend this book for medicinal purposes. I know I feel more relaxed after whiling away the time isolated inside reading it!
