Overview

When her father loses her in a poker game, Lexie Markland is sent to work in the household of Nicholas Wetherby for one year to pay off the debt. Innocent, but not naïve, she is savvy enough to know she must maintain her distance from this man, who frustrates her with his relentless teasing but whose kisses bring her to her knees. Because although she may be just another conquest to him, it's not just her heart in jeopardy should she succumb to Nicholas' considerable charms.

Since his brother's death almost a year before, nothing has held Nicholas' attention for long-not women, not booze, not even an excellent hand at cards. Nothing, that is, until he meets the woman he won in a drunken night of poker. Intrigued by his prize and her chilly reserve, he makes it his mission to crack Lexie's cool demeanor. But even as passion explodes between them, the question remains: will Nicholas be able to take the ultimate risk...and gamble on love?

4 STARS for THE MARKER

Set in late 19th-century America, Connors’ fine tale still has the flavor of a Regency. The heroine’s desire to protect her abusive father is not difficult to empathize with, and there are a number of secondary characters whose stories one will long to discover.

Meet the Author

After discovering that her degree in English Literature/Linguistics and German didn't lend itself to gainful employment in her hometown, Meggan Connors decided to pursue a graduate degree in the very practical field of Speech Pathology (she really liked school). However, being an author was always her true calling. She now pens novels of love and loss, of high stakes and risk-takers, and is forever being surprised when her characters decide to take control of "her" book.

Meggan makes her home in the Wild West with her lawman husband, two children, and a menagerie of pets. She is a member of Romance Writers of America and the Sacramento Valley chapter. When she's not writing, she can be found playing with her kids, hiking in the mountains, or reading a book.

Stumbled upon this one and was glad I did! Enjoyed every word. My only complaint is Meggan Conners hasn't written anything else for Nook yet!

Meggan Connors hit a home run with this book. A wonderful story I simply couldn't put down. Wonderful, in-depth characters that sing from the page. Can't wait to see what she writes next.

I loved that the book was historical, but took place in the U.S. I felt transported to another time. The love scenes were beautifully written and sensual. I'm hoping to find out more about the supporting characters in the book, specifically about Claire and her husband, and James. I can't wait to read more from this author!

I grew up in California, and I learned much about its history, but Connor's historical take on life in the late 1800s enlightened me. The text is detail rich, and the story is engrossing. _The Marker_ is a highly sensual read, and what could be better than getting turned on while you learn? Love this book!
