"Heart of a Marquess:  Regency Romance" by Joyce Alec

My Thoughts....

"Heart of a Marquess" was a beautiful love story of Lord Phillip and Lady Charlotte.  All would have been great if it had not been for the interference for Charlotte's stepsister Emma.  Emma was one of those people who was hateful, jealous and very spoiled and she seemed to think she would be able to get her way with Charlotte not matter what.  Even with Emma's aunt [Lady Perrin] trying to keep Emma on the straight and narrow would be of no good because Emma was just really something else.  But when it all came together I like how well this author is able to give the reader a nice historical  regency read.  For me I was shaking my head and saying wow at all of Emma's antics!  With Phillip having already had problems with a certain female one could see why he was so reluctant in wanting to get involved with anyone else but with the help of his friend [Kinsley]  after meeting Charlotte was he having different thoughts?  One thing about this read is that the storyline will keep your interest turning the pages to see what was coming next.  Would I recommend?  Yes, I did find it a very entertaining read.
