    One thought on “The Marquess Lends A Hand”

    1. Interesting, as with all of monique ellis's regency romances, the romance is almost sidelined by the central mystery, in this case how did Phobe father die? Unfortunately Phobe's idiotic insistence of marrying Phillip as the only to save her (rather undeserving) stepmother and step-sisters makes her seem to be a woman of very limited understanding, thus I couldn't really buy into the romance between her and a worldly rakish marquess.

    2. I really couldn't stand Phoebe. For a supposedly intelligent girl, she's foolishly agreeing to marry the horrid Phillip to save her not-at-all-deserving step mother. Just not believable. She has so many chances to tell Piers the truth, and still fails to come clean. I just didn't like this as a story at all.
