Series: Season's Original #3
Published by Avon Genres: Historical
I first fell in love with Vivienne Lorret’s writing in the previous book in the Season’s Original series, This Earl is on Fire and I have been hooked ever since. Ms. Lorret’s characters are full of wit that keeps me wanting to devour each and every story over and over again.
When a Marquess Loves a Woman is the third book in the Season’s Original series and it’s Max and Juliet’s story. Five years ago Max had his eye on Juliet but with her set to become that Seasons Original she could have picked any man to marry, but when she lost out to another woman, Bram, Max’s brother choose her instead. After being devastated by the news she ends up sharing a kiss with Max before Bram’s engagement announcement. Max offers to marry Juliet but her father isn’t too happy and needs some time to cool down. The next day when Max returns Juliet is gone and he finds out she is to be married to another.
Now five years later Max is still heartbroken and is shocked that Juliet has moved back to London. Juliet wants to buy the house she grew up in but Max isn’t going to make it easy even after all this time. Max and Juliet set a wager in guessing who this season’s original will be. Will Max win and be finally happy if Juliet moves away again or will Juliet win and finally get the house?
When a Marquess Loves a Woman was an enjoyable read that kept me guessing how it would turn out in the end and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It took me a few chapters to really get into the characters unlike the pervious book, but I still couldn’t resist their pull to one another. Once I could see that the love was still there even though Max was trying to deny it I ended up having high hopes for this couple and Ms. Lorret delivered.
When a Marquess Loves a Woman made me laugh, cry and root for this couple. Since I haven’t read much of Ms. Lorret’s work I know that I will be definitely looking forward to read more. If you are looking for a historical romance that will not only have you swooning but also believing in second chances you won’t want to miss When a Marquess Loves a Woman.
