Overview

When a Marquess Loves a Woman: The Season's Original Series by Vivienne Lorret

As a young, penniless gentleman, Maxwell Harwick knew he had little to offer Juliet White—the most beautiful debutante of the season—except his love, and one thoroughly scandalous kiss. But when they were discovered in a compromising position, a nearly ruined Juliet fled into the arms of a rich, older lord... taking Max’s heart with her.

Now a widow, Lady Juliet Granworth intends to use the fortune she inherited from her odious husband to build a new life in London. Five years have passed, but she’s never forgotten Max… or his soul-searing kiss. Yet it’s clear the newly-minted Marquess of Thayne has not forgiven her—after all, the infuriating man can barely stand the sight of her. But Juliet has endured far too much to give up without a fight and if it’s a battle of wills he wants, it’s a battle he’ll get.

He hates her for breaking his heart. She detests him for destroying her future. But beneath all the loathing simmers an intoxicating passion that neither can ignore… and the harder they resist, the harder they will inevitably fall.

The book engrosses the reader from the start. All starts with a bet after a forbidden kiss. You want to pick a side but are enthralled by both. Read this book and become just as captivated.

Couldn't put This one down. When you can see the characters move around the room, feel the tension, the hurt, the laughter like you are apart of it... you become it. That... Is an excellent story.

The Season’s Original is the IT girl – that one debutante that makes such a big splash during her debut that all the girls want to be her, the men want to have her and the parents want to have raised her. A boon for family and the man who wins her notice, there is, in this most competitive environs that is the Season, few more coveted adjectives. Maxwell is full of regrets and self-doubts. Always feeling ‘second’ to his brother Bram, he has held a torch for Juliet for years: the woman who, in his eyes, should have been named the original. Unfortunately, Juliet’s eyes were on Bram, and when his engagement was announced, to a woman other than her, she found consolation in his arms, and with his kiss. But, they were caught in this rather innocent moment, and while Max intended to return to ask for her hand, her father sent her off to marry another. Now she’s back in town, newly widowed and the anger from years ago rises again – setting the story and back and forth between them. Max felt abandoned, Juliet was mad for him not showing up and asking for her hand and now, she wants to purchase her family home, Max is not interested in her as a neighbor. Between every page, the passion between these two simmers – love and hate are two sides of a coin, and as much as these two try to deny their attraction, the more vehemently those feelings rise. Fueled by a wager and some seriously well-played back and forth, these two slowly reveal the reasons behind their anger, Juliet’s life with her husband, and Max’s undeniable (and unreserved) torch he’s held for her for years. Full of snappy dialogue, burn the fingertips passions and solid tension from the will they or won’t they moments, the story was a fun read. Easy enough to read on its own, this is part of a wonderful series that fans of historic romance will enjoy. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss from Avon Addicts for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions and expectations are my own responsibility.

I picked this book up because I was in the mood for a nice romantic story and the cover is simply gorgeous. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. I can't say that anything that happened in the book was a surprise but I enjoyed it nonetheless. This is listed as being the third book in a series but I read it as a stand alone without any difficultly. Max and Juliet's story ended up being quite entertaining. I really like the fact that this was a second chance romance simply because I haven't seen too many of those in historical romances. Juliet and Max had a bit of a scandal over a shared kiss years ago. The scandal left Max with a broken heart and pushed Juliet into a marriage with another man. This story picks up years later and Juliet is now a widow while Max has become the Marquess of Thayne. Both of their lives are very different than before and they now consider each other to be enemies. I liked Juliet and Max a lot. Being a widow gave Juliet a bit more freedom that the typical heroine. She has been through some things that have left her stronger and she isn't afraid to reach for what she wants in life anymore. Juliet wants to win the bet that she made with Max. Max has also been through some changes. When he first knew Juliet, he was a second son that would not inherit a title. He ends up becoming a Marquess after a distant relative's death. He has not always been favored so he sees things a little differently. I think that Max and Juliet mad a great couple. They were both a lot of fun and I really enjoyed all of their interactions. My favorite parts of the book were when they were together. I did like the chemistry between them and thought that the sexier parts of the book were well done. Of course, I knew from the first page that this pair would end up together but the journey was well worth it. I would recommend this book to fans of historical romance. This was a fun and romantic read with some really interesting elements. I would not hesitate to pick up other books by Vivienne Lorret in the future. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Avon Impulse.

For me the measure of a good book is never wanting to say goodbye. There are stories that just wrap around a reader to the point that the book becomes like an addiction. You never want to put it down. When a Marquess Loves a Woman was mine. Max and Juliet's relationship is all encompassing. Taking on many stages, it's intensity keeps drawing them back to each other. An enchantment built on something beautiful takes on a life of it's own ricocheting between a powerful love, a heated attraction or a consuming hate. Obsessive, vindictive, heartbreaking or passionate Juliet and Max are a temptation that can't be denied.
