My Review: The Wrong Marquess (The Mating Habits of Scoundrels, Book 3) by Vivienne Lorret
The Story (blurb from the publisher's website):
USA Today bestselling author Vivienne Lorret continues the Mating Habits of Scoundrels series with a debutante who believes she is destined to marry the lord next door until a fateful encounter with a rogue makes her wonder… if she might be falling for the wrong marquess!
The wrong place…
Elodie Parrish can feel spinsterhood breathing down her neck. That’s the trouble with waiting for the marquess next door her entire life. But Ellie knows if she gives him one last Season, he’ll finally propose. The only problem is, her path keeps crossing with the arrogant Lord Hullworth, who is convinced she has designs on him.
The wrong time…
Brandon, Marquess of Hullworth, never wanted to be “London’s Most Elusive Bachelor,” or have a horde of hopeful debutantes and their scheming mamas follow him around. His past has left him too jaded to consider marrying any of them. At least, that’s what he thinks... until he meets Ellie. She’s quirky, opinionated, blushes easily, and drives him absolutely wild. The only problem is, she believes she’s in love with someone else.
Ellie never imagined that one sultry summer could change everything. But the more time she spends with Brandon researching her book on the mating habits of scoundrels, the more she starts to fall for…
The Wrong Marquess
I admit, I was fuming after I read the prologue for this one. I adore a friends-to-lovers romance and this promised to be just that. I was quickly proven wrong and it most definitely turned out for the best. I suppose there still was a little bit of that trope present, but they were already well on their way to being lovers before they decided to be “friends”.
The Wrong Marquess turned out to be the right book to get me out of my reading slump. Simply put, I loved it. There isn’t a lot of conflict and the hero is a dish even if he is a bit arrogant and jaded at the beginning. I really enjoyed the heroine in this one too. She’s got a bit of fear and anxiety that prohibits her from fully experiencing life and relationships which I can totally relate to.
This book is just pure frothy fun and hit the spot! I’ve read a few books by this author but this is by far and away my favorite. I’m definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series!
~My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!~
