The Magnificent Marquess by Gail Eastwood

What if falling in love meant the death of the one you cared for?

Reinhart Maycott never expected to become the Marquess of Milbourne. Newly arrived in London from India, he doesn't welcome the adulation his vast wealth, power, and handsome looks inspire among the Regency elite. He has walled up his broken heart and is determined not to fall in love or marry ever again. His past has convinced him that allowing someone into his heart means death for them. But can the course of true love be stopped?

Dutiful Mariah Parbury's curiosity about his former life in India leads her into a dangerous quest to break down the walls around the marquess's heart. Her efforts turn her into a rule-breaker she hardly recognizes. Will her quest lead to love, or scandal? Or will the past that haunts him reach forward and claim her as its next victim?

Award-winning, best-selling author Gail Eastwood offers a new, expanded version of her classic Signet Regency. New scenes and characters heighten the intrigue in this heart-warming and suspenseful sweet romance.

Note: Harriet Pritchard, a character in Gail's book The Captain's Dilemma, also appears in this one, which is set a few years later.

"...piquant romance and spine-tingling danger guaranteed to take your breath away."--Romantic Times Magazine

About the Author

Gail Eastwood started writing stories as a youngster, and believes that A. A. Milne and Beatrix Potter set her on an early path to becoming an Anglophile. She served as a journalist, theatre critic and PR consultant, among other jobs, before she finally wrote and sold her first novel, a Regency Romance published by Signet/NAL. That book and others that followed have won awards and recognition. Hailed as “a master at painting pictures of Regency life,” Gail earned a reputation for pushing her genre’s boundaries with emotional depth and original plots. Family health issues took her out of the field for a dozen years, but now she’s excited to be back, working on new stories along with the reissues and new editions of her backlist. Her affection for Regency England is no surprise given her love of history, Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. Gail holds a degree in Humantities/Drama and Sociology from Case Western Reserve University. She lives in New England in a busy “refilled nest” with her lawyer/actor husband and two adult sons.
