Summary

When Elizabeth Hotchkiss stumbles upon a copy of How to Marry a Marquis in her employer's library, she's convinced someone is playing a cruel joke. A guidebook to seduction might be just the thing she needs - and what harm could there be in taking a little peek? 

Intrigued by the alluring young woman with the curious little rule book, James Sidwell, Marquis of Riverdale, decides that there is only one rule worth following - that Elizabeth marry her marquis.

Disappointing

Could have been a few hours shorter and better for it. Usual misunderstandings were so blatantly predictable that it was boring

Brilliant as ever

I just love this author and narrator and I am working my way through all of Julia Quinns books. you can't help but fall in love with the characters and the era. If you like the Bridgertons then you will love this.

Predictable but very funny and entertaining

I must confess that I love the narration from Rosalyn Landor more than the stories by Julia Quinn, nevertheless How to Marry a Marquis is very enjoyable and entertaining despite of being a bit predictable. It is no literary masterpiece, but is very funny. Even though I guessed the whole plot almost from the first page, it still made chuckle many times. I listened to it in record time so enjoyable it was.

Excellent narrator

Very funny beautiful well written storytelling escapism. What a surprise ending. The narrator's voice cleverly brings the characters to life. I am always amazed how she is able to use her voice for the male characters and make them sound so authentic and convincing. I have become a great fan of both the author and voice actor.

A very engaging and thoroughly enjoyable read

I’ve listened to this on audible at least three times. An excellent and enjoyable listen. Well narrated which had me gripped right from the start. Good story line, I’m a true romantic so this story fed my addiction to a tee. So much so, that I’ve read further stories from Julia Quinn with the same narrator.

A book of two halves

Really enjoyed the first half of this book until the hero suddenly became a misogynist caveman. Heroine the victim of a sexual assault yesterday? It's fine to creep up behind her and grab her, she won't be at all frightened. Heroine says no and refuses to leave the room with you? Just pick her up and carry her off, ignore anything she says because No doesn't really mean No, does it? I really liked James to begin with and then he acted in a way that made me feel really uncomfortable. Shame this was written by a woman.

Great book not so keen on the performance

The book is one of Julia Quinn's best, however the performance of it here wasn't for me. The mispronunciation of Marquis didn't help and the voices of the two main characters didn't sound quite right.

Lovely book…

God I love lady Danbury! If you do two you’ll love this as well. Bit of smut and a mention of attempted rape but hero saves heroin in the end!
