The Missing Marchioness

By

It’s autumn in 1812 and while Marcus Cleeve, Lord Angmaring, is betting his friends that he will never marry, Louise Cleeve, Marchioness of Sywell disguised as Madame Felice, is planning the trousseau of his sister. When Marcus meets the lovely dressmaker, he decides to make her his mistress. Little does he know she’s a long lost relative and the runaway bride of the recently murdered Marquis of Sywell.

This Regency story has all the plot elements of a gothic novel without being scary. The action is predictable, but the characters are lively and likable. The epilogue is confusing. It is a gathering of characters that are assumedly from the author’s previous works, but a reader not familiar with these characters will feel like they walked in on someone else’s party.
