The Marquis, with a courteous word ofinvitation, led his remaining guest across the grey stone hall into thelibrary . The Marquis assumed anattitude of complete satisfaction with the world in general. I am pleased to have this opportunity of a few words with you, M. hain," he said.

The Marquis, with a courteous word ofinvitation, led his remaining guest across the grey stone hall into thelibrary beyond-a sparsely furnished and yet imposing lookingapartment, with its great tiers of books and austere book cases. Onhis way, he drew attention carelessly to one or two paintings by oldmasters, and pointed out a remarkable statue presented by a famousItalian sculptor to his great-grandfather and now counted amongst theworld's treasures. You are quite comfortable in that chair, I trust?"

Poverty stricken marquis, Lord Tamar, is regarded in Blackhaven . Moreover, the marquis turns out to have committed a far more shocking crime than mere poverty. Original TitleThe Wicked Marquis (Blackhaven Brides Book 5).

Poverty stricken marquis, Lord Tamar, is regarded in Blackhaven as an amiable eccentric and a gifted painter, rather than as a wicked man. But Tamar has secrets that he dare not reveal to anyone, let alone to the delightful Lady Serena, the Earl of Braithwaite’s sister, who suddenly lights up his world. CreatorMary Lancaster.

Esme Leonardo becomes embroiled in her English cousins' tangled love affairs, and her plotting leads to a pretend engagement to the Marquis of Locklynde, an arrogant aristocrat with a reputation as a rake
I loved the cover artist's depiction on the old paperback that I read. A candy-apple red border topped by parchment-covered lace. Mustard-colored morning glories with muted green leaves. And best of all, the hero gently holding the heroine's hand with one arm while lightly grasping her elbow at the same time. Holding her, keeping her, from leaving him.

And the young lady with her head turned away. Confusion. Perhaps some hurt? Like he may have said or done something wrong.

From the beginning of this traditional Regency, I could tell it was going to be different. Esme Leonardo -you read me correctly with no Smythe, Burton-Jones or Chesterfield-Ravenscroft as last names- had been the product of a loving marriage between an English gentlewoman and an Italian opera singer. An orphan now, she arrived in England to live with her widower Uncle Frederick, his sister, the widowed Aunt Dora and her daughters: Drusilla, Hope and Constance. And her cousin, Kit.

It was because of Kit that goodhearted Emse got herself into some trouble. Her intentions were meant for the best but she verbalized a minor faux paux and before you know it, Lord Locklynde, The Wicked Marquis, made his presence known. And even though the marquis was mentioned early on, he didn't physically show up until further into the story. From there on out, he popped up at the most inconvenient times. For Esme. After all, she didn't really mean what she said. Or did she?

This was Esme's tale. Her interactions with her relatives, her comical common-sense approach with Locklynde and a minor misunderstanding with his 'friend'; I enjoyed how those moments played out. And, at one point concerning some secondary characters, the story reminded me a little of Pride and Prejudice.
I'm glad I persevered in finding this book. After reading a couple of disappointing books, I was in need of a dose of talented writing. The narrative is scintillating and entertaining and you are hooked early on. Won’t go too much into the plot of the story but will just say that our young h is quite the clever girl who tries to rescue her cousin from an arranged marriage, and in the process butts heads with the family’s patriarch. It is a fun, heartwarming, hilarious, intelligently written, and YES romantic adventure. Such a treat, I did not want it to end.
I am surprised there were no reviews for any of Ms. Ellingson's books, so it is hard to judge how the author's general works are; I believe she deserves at least one review, for I enjoyed this book very much.

From back of the book: A daring ploy in the game of love. Lovely young Esme, recently orphaned and nearly pennilss, arrived at her uncle's country home to the delight of her four cousins. High spirited and well versed in the ways of the world, Esme had all the charm to make her unconventional behavior quite forgivable.

When Esme discovered that hr cousin Kit was about to forsake love for an arranged marriage, the wonderfully imaginative Esme was compelled to give Cupid a hand.

Her daring ruse involved betrothing herself to a man she had never met ... a man with a very wicked reputation. When Esme finally does meet her "intended", the entrancingly mysterious Marquis of Locklynde, her innocent game takes a startling turn as unexpected but undeniable attraction begins to bloom.

I really enjoyed Esme's spirited, intelligent, and daring approach to carry out her plan of saving her cousin from a loveless marriage. I could really feel her bubbling personality, a very likable young lady. I also enjoyed the dialogues and bantering among the heroine and hero, they were very cleverly done. The only minor bone that I had to pick was not enough courtship between the two main characters. But I don't think this dampen the overall plot. Strongly recommend it.
I read this book years ago and loved it! I wish I could get it as an eBook. It is well worth reading for anyone who enjoys Regency romances.
