Never kiss a notorious Marquess is the third book in this series but each book can be read as a standalone. I have not read any other books in this series; each book features one particular couple.
Caroline Lawrence is an aspiring journalist, and she travels to here a famous suffragette speak without informing her family when she is injured she is rescued by James Trent, Lord Huntington and taken to his estate to recover.
James has avoided society since the death of his first wife as it is believed that he is responsible for her death and is known as he Murdering Marquess. He finds himself drawn to the mysterious woman in his care, and with his siblings conspiring against him he finds himself thrown into her company, but when she disappears after a night together, he doesn’t know how he’ll find her.
when Caroline discovers James’ past, she pens an article condemning him but once reunited with him when he and his family journey to London she realises that there is more to this man than she previously thought.
I found James and his family to be entertaining and intriguing, but Caroline destroys the story for me. For someone keen on being a journalist, she destroys a man’s character without investigation, and this is after he came to her aid. She is childish and impulsive, and I felt James forgave her too quickly. This is a book for fans of historical romance, and I would follow the series if it focuses on James’ family.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review all thoughts and opinions are my own.
