♥ Book Title : The Dark Marquis - Regency Murder Mystery
☯ Full Synopsis : "Regency Romance - Murder, Mystery & Suspense (Steamy Content)Despite a dark secret and aware his father the duke will likely disinherit him for marrying below his rank, Rupert Marquis of Ranchester is nonetheless determined to wed his mistress. But Caroline Lady Somerville, an old flame of Rupert's has returned from India a widow, and has every intention of once again leading him into vices of the flesh, gambling and the dream smoke.Nervous but happy about imminent wedlock life becomes Hell for Estelle, when one man's inner desires lead to blackmail, betrayal leads to revenge, and a string of murders place the duke in the frame as the killer. Review by RRM -: A well-written intelligent Regency Romance. It was a refreshing change to read a romance where the opening scene is missing the ubiquitous angst driven heroine bleating and berating the hero. Ms Howarth instead focuses reader attention with a duel at dawn and a chilling outcome... The action-packed scene sets the pace for further macabre deaths leading to a deeply disturbing murder mystery, with several of the leading characters as the prime suspects. Although the heroine [Estelle] has a feisty nature she's loveable and vulnerable as all women were to the rules and regulations of Regency society. Mistresses within the haut ton conducted themselves in discreet manner. Mistresses from the lower order of the ton crossed the divide at their peril. The Marquis of Rantchester's love for Estelle touches the heart in so many ways ... Without a shadow of doubt I rate this Regency Murder mystery a five star read all the way from beginning to end. The characters are strong. The plot is tightly woven. The murders are cleverly linked leading to a surprise villain. The romance is enduring. The language of the narrative is unique in portrayal of Regency England 1819."Article| Francine Francine Howarth| Statement ..."
