Cain, Marquis of Chase is considered to be a man without a moral bone in his body. When he was sixteen he was thrown from his home and then raised in a brothel.
Juliana Merton was married to a bookstore owner until his murder. Now she struggles in a male dominated world to be a respectable business owner.
Cain is trying to find a specific book and is told that Juliana would make an excellent person to refer books to him. When Juliana encounters Cain, she finds herself feeling desire and a passion that was ever denied her in the marriage bed. She also has an agenda of her own, one that will throw her in the path of a murderer. Will they be able to find the truth before it is too late, not only for their love but for their very lives?
The Wild Marquis is the story of how two people from two different worlds are seeking absolution from a society that judges on a person’s past. Ms. Neville shows us the way Cain is judged for his wild ways even as Juliana is judged solely on her being a woman. I loved how her eyes were opened to what real passion is, even as his were opened to what it feels like to love unconditionally. This is a well written novel with adventure, mystery, passion, and the pursuit of books to keep the reader going.
