Romantic intrigue, engaging characters, historical accuracy. Vivacious and beautiful Caroline Kent, daughter of an earl in Regency England, bursts into a 'gentlemen only' area (that is, into a gaming room!) during a social outing. She takes one look at perfect stranger there, and falls madly in love with him. Okay, so far we're reading a romance novel set in a very popular era. One of many such novels...ho hum. Nothing could be further from the truth, though. The man who has captured Caroline's heart is a Keith of Dunnottar, a Scottish nobleman who's in London on a mission that must come before all else in his life right now. As James Keith pursues that mission (keeping his true identity concealed, even from Caroline, through much of the book!), he discovers secrets from an earlier era in his own family's history - and some rather more recent ones in Caroline's. 'Marylebone' is going to make you smile, and it's also pretty likely to bring tears to your eyes in some places. It's a very different book than its prequel, 'Dunnottar,' but it is every bit as well worth reading!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
