Disclosure. This post is a review of an e-book I was sent for free. All opinions are my own.
I have received a free e-copy of the book Marquess of Malice by Tammy Andresen to review.
Here is the book blurb.
He’s known as the Marquess of Malice…can one little lady warm his dark heart?
Malice, as his friends and fellow gaming hell owners call him, doesn’t have room in his life for love. He’ll take a quiet bride, make an heir, and ship her off to the country. He’s picked the perfect little mouse for the job. The problem? When Malice asks her to marry him, Lady Cordelia refuses. Has she no sense? Any debutante would be happy to catch a marquess. But then again, he’s broken inside. Perhaps Cordelia is the most sensible woman of them all…
Lady Cordelia Chase has no intention of marrying the oafish, overbearing marquess. Lord Malicorn is rude, surly, and entirely unsuitable. Never mind that he’s the only man to ask. Quiet and shy, she’s been overlooked most of her life. When she marries, it will be for love and not just as a breeding cow. The only problem is that when Lord Malicorn isn’t talking, well, he’s rather strong and terribly handsome. And when he holds her in his arms, she could almost swear her heart skips a beat. If this isn’t love…what the devil is it?
This is book 2 in the Regency Romance Lords of Scandal series, but works well as a stand-alone read. However to fill you in, the ladies have discovered the lords secret gaming den, so each lord will watch a lady to ensure she is trustworthy.
Malice, the Marquess of Malicorn has been keeping an eye on Lady Cordelia Chase. And since he needs an heir, he has decided that quiet Cordelia would make an excellent suitable wife. But Cordelia turns down his unromantic proposal. She doesn’t want to be considered suitable, she wants to marry someone for love.
Of course Malice is still committed to the agreement with his fellows to continue watching Cordelia. Can he come up with another plan? Has Cordelia made a mistake?
