On the contrary, Alasdair and Willow played out their scenes by talking and admitting their thoughts and emotions. How wonderful! Especially how Alasdair handled the wedding day. Gallant and mature. And how he handled her brother and father. Sensible and stoic. And the fact that Willow can admit her shortcomings is admirable. I really appreciated their names Alasdair and Willow. In a genre where certain historic names get rehashed over and over again, the names Alasdair and Willow were different.
I highly recommend this novella. Well written - really intense and dramatic. Totally enjoyable. Jan 19, Brenda rated it it was amazing Shelves: reviewed. Passion reignites between them, and he makes an enticing offer she Publisher's Description: The Marquess and I was previously published in the Regency anthology A Midsummer Night's Kiss. My Thoughts: I loved this short read by a favorite author, Stacy Reid.
I had not previously read this novella although it was published in an anthology. Unlike a lot of historical romance books this one did not include perfect a hero and heroine. Instead we have a heroine who is blind and a hero who still loves her in spite of their past. It's a different take on a second chances story. This quick read gives the reader just enough back story so they know what happened before and blends it well with the current occurrences. I gave this story 4. I borrowed this book to read via the KindleUnlimited program.
This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily. I just It was disappointing. She fears he will never love her forever and will eventually resent her. Okay, these are issues. They aren't entertaining issues. They are annoying issues that can be resolved with one good chat, except not really, because she doesn't trust him. He's basically her savior and treats her as she should be treated, which smacks of I dunno.
I liked him I guess. He seem I just He seemed a bit unreal. I never really felt for him? And definitely not for her. She was annoying. The sex scene wasn't even good because of the timing. I was stressed as hell because of when it took place. Everyone is waiting. Hanky panky after! I couldn't pay attention to it at all and basically speed-read it. Every problem in the story was caused by external issues and lack of self esteem based on little grounds, if any.

Annoying and tiresome. It wasn't special. I could see it all a mile away. Apr 09, K. Absolutely buying the next book Wasn't terribly impressed by the hero and his desire for revenge at the beginning, really only kept reading bc of the disability rep.

Kind of cringed that the hero immediately gave up his thoughts of revenge when he found out she was blind. It was understandable, but felt a bit like it was infantilizing of disabled folx although not being disabled myself, totally listen to actually disabled folx over me. That being said, it was a compelling story, and I absolutely Absolutely buying the next book Wasn't terribly impressed by the hero and his desire for revenge at the beginning, really only kept reading bc of the disability rep. That being said, it was a compelling story, and I absolutely devoured it.
It didn't shy away from the way some ppl treat disabled folx as a burden, while also showing how despicable that is. I really liked the riding scene, which showed that the heroine didn't need the hero to help her be independent--she just needed to regain her own confidence, and also have reasonable accommodations. As far as I can tell, the rep in this book was handled well. I look forward to reading the sequel. Apr 04, Jordyn Kross rated it really liked it Shelves: hot-and-spicy. I'm kind of a brat about second chance romances.
Too often, authors don't address the pain between the two people only the circumstances that kept them apart. This is not the case with The Marquess and I. Willow and Alasdair have pain and conflict.

She sent him on his way planning to marry a duke. He went off to war and never even tried to get her back. And now, here they are, he's broke and she has no dowry. As much conflict as there was, there was even more passion. The steam came off the page I'm kind of a brat about second chance romances. The steam came off the pages.
Exactly how I like my romances. Such a fun read. I'm going to find more books by this author after I finish fanning myself. May 21, Laura J.

I Just Had to Read This This is my second time reading this novella. What can I say? The storyline is like a fairytale for me. All I can say is that I enjoyed the plot and the twists and revelations. No angst and stubborness. Just pure live story. First love torn apart then gets a second chance. A blind heroine and a hero who never stopped loving her. An epilogue to sigh over.
Read this book and it will make you happy. Oct 15, Monika P. Love, sweet love! I don't know the title or author or character names. I think the "hero" is from a well-known, well-off family. I know the "heroine" is from a poor family. She has red hair. I'm not sure if she has an older brother or dad.
