Everyone knows that good missionary girls are plain and dull. And that’s just the way Blythe likes it! Lady Blythe Dennings has craved adventure her entire life, but due to her relation to the powerful Carrow family, there was no way she was going to get it.
So… she became a missionary.
Blythe’s prim missionary act gives her plenty of freedom to go to the cruelest parts of London to have her own adventure quests. But her plans are thrown into chaos when her uncle dies. This leaves her as one of the richest heiresses London has ever seen!
Suddenly, everyone’s looking at her. Including a dangerous enemy.
But … the person looking the hardest is Thomas “Demon Tom” Martin, Marquess of Amory, the eldest son of the Martin family–the Carrows’ sworn enemies.
Thomas loves gambling, he loves trouble, and maybe, he loves this supposedly prim little missionary as well!
Too bad Blythe belongs to the Carrows.
Can Blythe survive the darkness and danger around her?
And will their love be enough to quell an ancient feud between the two families?
An absolutely delightful debut to a new series, The Marquess’ Angel is a well-written novel filled with unique characters and action as well as romance.
The novel follows Blythe who is desperate for adventure, despite what her plain demure appearance would have you believe. Once night when helping a young woman escape her abusive protector, Blythe stumbles upon “Demon Tom”, otherwise known as Thomas Martin and enemy to Blythe family. From there, the author expertly weaves a tale of heroism and romance between two people who, by all rights, should hate each other.
Blythe and Tom are easily likable characters with believable motivations. Watching them grow both as people and a couple was as entertaining as it was endearing. The secondary characters are equally as fleshed out and engaging. Tom’s sister only adds to the story with hilarious takes-no-nonsense attitude while her cryptic knowledge fuels the reader’s interest in the mystery surrounding both families. Blythe’s cousin Tristan also furthers to deepen the story though his stubbornness can be infuriating.
Overall, The Marquess’ Angel is a wonderful read. Filled with action and romance. The story will captivate the reader until the very end.
