How to Marry a Marquis very much fits that description it made me laugh and kept me turning the pages.~ Under the Covers
Miss Elizabeth Hotchkiss is trembling on the very edge of poverty, barely keeping food on the table for her siblings by working as a companion for Lady Danbury. Her only way out it seems is for her to marry only she has no skills in attracting a suitor and leading him to a proposal and the only guidance she seems to be able to find is from a very silly book. With nothing to lose Elizabeth starts practicing her wiles on Mr James Sidwell Lady D’s penniless estate manager, only things aren’t quite as they appear and she never expected to actually fall in love…
Julia Quinn books never fail me, they may not be life changing or sweep me off my feet, but they do always do two things, one, entertain me and two make me smile. How to Marry a Marquis very much fits that description it made me laugh and kept me turning the pages.
Elizabeth and James were both very likable characters and had a very cute romance, it didn’t take any unexpected turns and so although predictable it was sweet and charming. A character you may recognize if you have read enough of Julia Quinn’s books is Lady Danbury, I love Lady Danbury she is a sharp tongued yet sweet older lady who manages to keep everyone around her on their toes with her cutting wit.
A great book for some light reading, you may not remember much about it in a few weeks time but it will leave you with a cozy feeling and a smile on your face.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
