    Enjoyable historical romance!

    How the Marquess was Won, is the latest in a series by Julie Anne Long. Phoebe Vale is a teacher in a girl¿s school who is invited to spend the holidays with one of her former pupils, Lisbeth. Prior to her leaving she meets Julian, Lord Dryden, while at a local merchant. One of his companions makes an improper wager regarding Phoebe that she overhears. When Lord Dryden appears later at the school, supposedly to look for a place for his niece, Phoebe engages him in a spirited conversation. Thinking that she will never see him again, she is pleasantly surprised to see him again at Lisbeth¿s house party. It soon becomes obvious that Lisbeth¿s family is pushing for a match with Dryden and Phoebe finds herself in the middle. Phoebe and Dryden have a strong attraction to each other but both realize it can¿t go anywhere. Phoebe is planning to go off and do missionary work so she decides to let herself go for this last time. Dryden has genuine feelings for her but he cannot wed a nobody. It¿s a fairly common theme in historical romance novels, but Ms. Long manages to rise above the convention and add a new twist to the plot. Phoebe is perfectly done as a young woman who wants a lovely memory to hold onto when she surrenders to the inevitable and goes off to do good works. Dryden has genuine feelings for Phoebe and is conflicted about it. When he discovers something that will cause Phoebe a great deal of pain and humiliation, he tries his best to remedy the situation. Unfortunately, things don¿t always go as planned. There is a little bit of everything in this book- romance, humor, intrigue, backstabbing, all wrapped up in an enjoyable story. This is the 6th book in the series and I have not read the earlier ones, but I will be doing so. Ms. Long definitely needs to be added to the list of authors to watch out for her new books.

    Good Read but Lacking Solidity.

    There are 2 reasons why I didn't give it 5 stars. 1). The heroine was very impervious. I wish her character was a little less resistant. Shes suppose to be human after all. 2) The ending. I was expecting a much different ending. The ending wasn't bad but I was disappointed to see how it turned out. Overall, its a good read, but not as good as What I Did For a Duke.

    WONDERFUL ADDITION TO THE PENNYROYAL SERIES!! HOW THE MARQUESS

    WONDERFUL ADDITION TO THE PENNYROYAL SERIES!!

    HOW THE MARQUESS WAS WON:PENNYROYAL GREEN SERIES by Julie Anne Long is a wonderful addition to the Pennyroyal Green series,but can be read as as stand alone. See “The Perils of Pleasure, Like No Other Lover, Since the Surrender,I Kissed an Earl,What I Did for a Duke”. Julian Spenser, Marquess Dryden,is considered The Lord of Ice until he meets Lisbeth Redmond then he was lost. When you play with fire,you could get burned. Together, Lisbeth and Julian has witty banter, passion, scandal,while Lisbeth melts the icy heart of Julian and he unravels her desire and passion. A wonderful story from beginning to end. Written with a strong cast of characters who will capture your heart. A must read for any one who enjoys historical romance,Regency England,and a great continuance into the
    }Pennyroyal Green” series.I have so enjoyed this series. This author knows how to write a story with witty banter,and a characters that leave you panting and sighing for more. I can hardly wait for the next installment. A must read. Received for an honest review from Net Galley and the publisher. Details can be found at Avon,an imprint of Harper Collins Publishers,the author’s website, and My Book Addiction and More.

    A+ romance novel

    One of the best historic romances I've read in awhile. I didn't want this book to end. The characters are written so that you can't help cheer for them.

    Poignant

    This is a great series. This particular book is a little painful to read because of the bullying by some socialites of Phoebe. It takes a long time for the marquess to realize that it is possible to not live up to expectations and the world will not end. This is a scenario very common in real life andverycompelling. As always, dialog is great...my favorite is still What I did for a Duke. I swear that one must be autobiographical. Definitely read it.
