Max St. Albans, The Marquess of Rotherstone, has decided it is time for him to find a bride. With that in mind, he set his solicitor to making up a list of the most eligible gently bred ladies of the ton that fit his requirements. Intriguingly enough, when the list shows up there is a warning about the fifth and final lady that has Max wanting to know exactly who or what the darling lady is.
Miss Daphne Starling cannot help that her outlook on life is different from other ladies of the ton. With the nickname of The Patron Saint of Newcomers, she goes out of her way to help anyone who needs her. When a typical visit to the orphanage leads to a confrontation between a rough gang of boys, Daphne, and Max, it can only lead to a desire to find out more about her savior.
What Daphne does not realize is that he has secrets that cannot be shared, ones that could destroy her very life, at the least have her in constant danger. As Max continues to pursue the beautiful woman, he uses his skills of seduction as well as some of his secret weapons he uses when spying on the enemy to get her right where he wants her. When she discovers the secret life that Max leads, there is only one thought that keeps going through her head. Daphne declares war against the man who has seduced her with his clever hands and stolen her heart. She vows to get to the bottom of all of his secrets even as Max continues to try to keep her safe from enemy hands.
My Wicked Marquess is the beginning of a new series for Ms. Foley and I am still speechless with this astounding tale. Have you have ever read a book that had your stomach turning from the intensity of it, the very thrill ride that a story can give you? Then you will understand exactly what I mean when I say this novel will have a mind-blowing effect on any reader. This tale has so many impressive elements that I could spend hours ranting about this sensational book. If you love a story with tons of humor, non-stop action, dangerous enemies, secret spies, beautiful women, and men who ooze danger even as they seduce you, then this tale is the perfect novel for you!
