Should Lady Anne Milhaven marry the wealthy and handsome young marquess, or should she resign herself to living out her life in poverty and disgrace, exiled from the world she was born to?
Should Philip Tremaine, the new Marquess of Penworth, redeem his honor and marry the proud and beautiful earl's daughter whom he has unintentionally compromised, or should he prove himself as dissolute as his contemptible family?
They are not fools, but marriage is only the beginning. They have an estate to restore and reputations to repair. In addition, they must learn to work together if they are to thwart the vile plots of their scheming relatives.
A Match for the Marquess is the prequel to the Victorian Adventures series.
About the Author
When she retired after too many years in journalism, Lillian Marek felt a longing for happy endings and stories where the good guys win and the bad guys get their just deserts. Having exhausted her library’s supply of non-gory mystery stories, she started reading romance novels, especially his- torical romance. This was so much fun that she thought she’d like to try her hand at writing one. So at the age of 70 she took her computer keyboard in hand, slipped back into the 19th century, and began. She was right—writing romance novels is as much fun as reading them.

This was a fun read, from the accidental compromising of Anne to the repairing of Philip's heart, family reputation, and home. Anne's willingness to accept and make the best of her life gave her the strength to stand up for herself and her husband. Philip was such a broken man, not knowing his own worth, .that his happiness was my own. There were moments of amusement as well as some of disgust at the treatment this couple received. It was a satisfying happily ever after, and I recommend this story. I received a copy of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.
