Lady Armstrong's Scandalous Awakening

For this second book in her Victorian Era Revelations of the Carstairs Sisters series, Marguerite Kaye returns briefly to her Armstrong family, albeit a generation on, and shows the apple didn’t fall far from the tree in the person of the deceased but obnoxious-from-beyond-the-grave Lord Harry Arm ...

B
The Earl Who Sees Her Beauty

The Earl Who Sees Her Beauty is a well-researched but sometimes groan-worthy book.  It’s not bad at all, and the relationship between the hero and heroine is well done, but some plot details and pacing issues kept this at a B level for me. Prudence Carstairs was scarred in an accident as a chi ...

A Forbidden Liaison with Miss Grant

Marguerite Kaye is one of my favourite authors and is someone I know can be relied upon to create interesting characters and situations that are firmly grounded in their historical settings, while also crafting a compelling and emotional romance between her hero and heroine.  Readers – like me ...

The Inconvenient Elmswood Marriage

When I read The Earl’s Countess of Convenience, the first book in Marguerite Kaye’s Penniless Brides of Convenience series, I was instantly intrigued by the character of Kate, Lady Elmswood, guardian to the three young women – her nieces by marriage - who were the heroines of the other novels ...

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 ...

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
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 ...

B
His Rags to Riches Contessa

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 ...
