#18 - How to Marry a Marquis ~ Julia Quinn

ISBN:  978-0-7499-0880-5

I actually quite like a the covers on these, and am really beginning to appreciate Miss Quinn's style - allbeit very different from Stephanie Laurens (who is at the moment my very favourite author).

The story of Elizabeth Hotchkiss, who is left almost destitute and looking afer her young siblings.

To help ends meet she acts as Lady's Companion to Lady Danbury, and one days comes across a most intriguing red leather book entitiled "How to Marry a Marquis" and hatches a plan to at least marry somebody with sufficient funds to allow her young brother to take his rightful place at Eaton.

Enter Mr Siddons, masquerading as Lady Danbury's Estate Manager, but in actual fact her nephew .... one James Sidwell, Marquis of Riverdale.

He undertakes to assist Elizabeth in finding her Marquis, but truth to tell he has already decided to take the post himself.

An entertaining and delightfuly story, with a cat called Malcolm assisting along the way, and Dunford from The Minx.

3 Stars ***

Happy reading.
