The Truth Behind Their Practical Marriage

This is the third Marguerite Kaye book I’ve read in 2019 and, once again, I am impressed by her mastery of story-telling. Ms. Kaye captivates her readers from the first few pages and keeps the spell going throughout the novel. In The Truth Behind Their Practical Marriage, we begin in Florence, wit ...

An Invitation to a Cornish Christmas is brought to us by Marguerite Kaye and Bronwyn Scott. The stories take place in Porth Karrek, Cornwall during the 1822 Christmas Season and revolve around the same cast of characters. The Captain’s Christmas Proposal by Marguerite Kaye Grade: B+      ...

A Wife Worth Investing in

I know when I pick up a book by Marguerite Kaye that it’s going to be something different and A Wife Worth Investing In - the second book in her Penniless Brides of Convenience Series – is no exception.  It can be read as a stand-alone but I know I am definitely going to go back and read book o ...

The Earl's Countess of Convenience

It isn’t always easy to write a review of an average or sub-par book, and it’s even less so when it’s an average or sub-par book by a favourite author, so I’m sorry to say that The Earl’s Countess of Convenience, the first in Marguerite Kaye’s new four-part Penniless Brides of Convenienc ...

A Scandalous Winter Wedding

Every book in Marguerite Kaye's Matches Made in Scandal series has been an A grade read for me, which is rare. Kaye is clearly a superb storyteller and a careful craftsman. The tightly-knit plots and the multi-faceted characters make for a satisfying whole. The series has a central figure called ...

His Rags to Riches Contessa is the third book in Marguerite Kaye’s Matches Made in Scandal series, and tells the story of an actress and card sharp who is hired to help a Venetian nobleman obtain revenge against the man who killed his father.  The four novels in the set are linked by a mysterious ...

From Courtesan to Convenient Wife

Marguerite Kaye’s research glimmers in a well-told, engrossing and tender story from her Matches Made in Scandal series, about a courtesan who’s never (really) been kissed seeking to leave behind a past she had no say over, and a man running from a (possibly) falsified betrothal. In From Courtes ...

From Governess to Countess

I’ve been looking forward to Marguerite Kaye’s new, four-book Matches Made in Scandal series, as each story is set in a different European city. While I certainly don’t object to historical romances set in the UK, I am always keen to venture elsewhere, and was definitely enticed by the thought ...

Scandal at the Christmas Ball

Scandal at the Christmas Ball is a connected duology set at the Duke of Brockmore’s Christmas house party. He and his wife are known for matchmaking, so all four of our leads enter their stories with wary eyes. They will never marry (shall we all grin cheekily at them together, readers?) and they ...

Claiming His Desert Princess

Claiming His Desert Princess is the final book in Marguerite Kaye’s Hot Arabian Nights quartet of historical romances set in Arabia in the early 1800s.  Contemporary romances abound with gorgeous sheikh heroes, but they’re not so often found in historicals, and neither are there that many regen ...
