“The story is nothing short of original and when I feel I’ve read all the plots there can be in historical romance, that’s always refreshing.”
~ Under the Covers
Judith Worth’s life changed drastically when the man she was supposed to marry ruined her father and brother’s reputation accusing them of treason. Now, she’s no longer a distinguished member of society as she used to and she’s had to make a lot of sacrifices to give her younger siblings a chance of a good life. She never wanted to see her childhood friend and once love of her life, Christian, except he’s just the man she needs to ask help of.
You know me and second chance at love stories. They’re my crack! And there’s something always enthralling about the way Courtney Milan weaves a tale. I can’t say that ONCE UPON A MARQUESS is her best work to date, but it does have that classic charm I come to expect. The story is nothing short of original and when I feel I’ve read all the plots there can be in historical romance, that’s always refreshing.
I love a strong heroine and Judith is that. She’s taken the reins of her family and held her chin up through troubling times. Even when she must go to Christian for help, she does it on her terms. I also loved Christian because he handles her in just the right way. Not too pushy, not too soft.
This book sets up the Worth family and their saga very well I think. I am very excited to see the plot thickening in future books and I do have to say I sort of expected where the story went in the end and the big twist we had. But that just makes me all the more excited for what’s to come.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
