The last man Judith Worth wants to see again is Christian Trent, the Marquess of Ashford--the man who spent summers at her family home, who kissed her one magical night...and then heartlessly ruined her father. But when a tricky business matter arises, he's the only one she can ask for help. With any luck, he'll engage a servant to take care of the matter, and she won't even have to talk with him.
But Ashford has never forgotten Judith. He knows she will never forgive him for what he's done, but when offered the chance to assist her, he arrives in person. His memory of Judith may have haunted him, but it pales in comparison to the reality of the vivacious, beautiful woman he rediscovers. Throughout his life, he has always done what is correct. But now, he finds himself doing something utterly wrong...falling in love with the one woman he can never have.
Once Upon a Marquess is the first book in the Worth Saga.
I love this book!Thank you
Once upon a marquess
Well written. The characters—all of them—are well developed. The comedic parts do not outweigh the difficult. This is not a happy, uplifting book. It was a good ending, tho a tad predictable.
An interesting well written story. Judith Worth has had a hard time since her father’s suicide because he was found guilty of treason. Her brother, Anthony, was as well and sentenced to transportation. Judith has tried real hard to keep her family together except we find out later her sister Camilla has had a real hard time. Judith turns to Christian Ashford for help.
Help is coming but he wants her brother’s Anthony journals. You have an excellent mystery, romance and plenty of humor. There are plots twists and a surprise. Judith will tie the knot with Christian and the cat population will increase.
Enjoy this interesting story which I recommend.
