As I have stated before - I love Teresa Medeiros and have yet to find a book by her that I have not loved! This book is the second in the 2 book series about the Fairleigh sisters. This one is about Lottie who was first introduced as a 10 year old in the first book - A Kiss to Remember. Lottie is now about to turn 21 and having a coming out party, when she is compromised by a daring man who is considered an outcast in London society and rumor has that he killed his first wife.

A wonderful love story about second chances and opening your heart. You will not be disappointed with Medeiros and I recommend this book as well as any other by her.

I really enjoyed the book as it only took me two days to read it, but it's not as steamy as I generally like to get into. It's really a sad story of a broken household that bipolar disorder has destroyed and the people that were left in it's wake. Heart-wrenching even. Although tough to put down you don't get into any sort of steam aside from the first kiss until the end. Which apparently the story didn't need.
It's a lovely story none-the-less.

This was the first book by Teresa Medeiros I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. A young Carlotta Fairleigh is about to make her debut and instead finds herself instead spying on a mysterious neighbor, only to be caught in a compromising position, forcing the betrothal of both. I loved the hero who was sympathetic and likeable and the heroine was humourous and engaging. Other spectacular reads....Lisa Kleypas, Mary Balogh, Madeline Hunter.

This was my first Teresa Medeiros book, I was hooked from then on. This book reminded of the great old Cary Grant movies, it had humor and some sizzle.

I began this book out of sequence and now I can't wait to read the first one. This book had a compelling story that held me captive the entire book.

This book is about a marquess by the name of Hayden St.Clair and Carlotta Anne Fairleigh. Many years before Hayden's wife died under strange circumstances. It was never known how or why but because she died after Hayden's duel with his best friends it was thought to have been done by his own hands. After Hayden's wife death he was called dubbed the "Murderous Marquess".

During a short visit in London Carlotta was in residence next door. After she finds out that he was staying next door her curiosity get's the better of her and she decides to leave her coming out debut ball to take a peak at him. I mean the house was suppose to be abandoned, it was always dark, who wouldn't want to check it out. Certainly one small peek through his window before the festivities would be harmless ... Naturally, her latest adventure ends in disaster when Hayden unfortunately mistakes Carlotta for a hired lady of the night, that he believed his friend was implying that he was going to send and they are caught in a compromising situation. In order to keep her brother in law from fighting to the death in a dual she presents herself to Hayden and convinces him to marry her.

Now betrothed and suddenly married she's now en route to the wilds of Cornwall in the company of the handsome, mysterious marquess whose name the ton whisper with fear and loathing. Yet there is something thrilling --- and surprisingly tender --- about her dark, unreachable husband, and the desire in his eyes is undeniable. But it's not enough to see his desire for her in his eyes, she wants to hold his heart, but in order to have it she must unlock the secrets of Hayden's past, no matter how scandalous --- or perilous --- they may be.

Carlotta Farleigh is in London ready to make her debut to society when she discovers that the home next door is being rented by the "Murderous Marquess" Hayden St. Clair. Always impulsive, Lottie decides to sneak over and take a peek at the notorious Marquess. But Lottie's plans never work out the way she thinks they will. She ends up thoroughly compromised and engaged to Hayden St. Clair. If stories about the death of his first wife are true, Lottie had better watch her back. Yet as she lives in his mansion and gets to know him, she soon discovers that things aren't as they seem.

This was an amusing addition to Teresa Medeiros' Farleigh Sisters series. Lottie is very much a drama queen who wants to be a published writer. I thought some of her inner dialogue was hilarious. This was a fun story and good follow-up to the first book in the series. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
