Loving the Marquess (Landing a Lord) by Suzanna Medeiros
She is on the verge of losing everything...To save her home and keep her two younger siblings safe, Louisa Evans must turn to the head of the family that ruined hers.
He needs an heir...
The Marquess of Overlea is starting to show signs of having inherited the same illness that killed his father and older brother. To prevent the marquisate from falling into the hands of an unscrupulous cousin, Overlea must secure an heir before that illness also claims him.
But he is determined not to be the father of that heir...
Overlea's plan is simple--marry the practical, yet desperate, Miss Evans and hold Louisa to her promise to provide him with an heir. But he waits until after they are married to tell his wife that he intends to have another man father that heir. His careful plan becomes complicated by an almost desperate need to claim Louisa for himself and an outside threat that proves even more dangerous than his illness.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book has everything I love in a Historical Romance. A non-simpering woman, someone strong, and level headed. A hunky lord, fully taken to his knees by his emotions. Mystery and drama, and an intricate plot. I appreciate the twist. The problem is, it was transparent. Quite early in the book you can see what's going to happen. I feel the author could have put some more thought into making the story line deeper, less see through. But, that's not to say I didn't enjoy the book. It was a great read, and I really liked it. If you want a fun little Historical, pick this up. I look forward to the next in this series.
