acquainted with him.
She is taken off guard by his charm and
sincerity. She finds herself falling in love with Thomas.
Can the two find happiness or will Marianneís suspicions
cause irrevocable differences?
The Mysterious Marquis was a fun and sweet
story by Ms. Cogan. If you are looking for an older (mid
20ís) heroine in a London historical that you will want to
pick up The Mysterious Marquis. I enjoyed how
the author was able to weave in all the misunderstandings
that would potentially happen if people donít talk and make
assumptions. I think The Mysterious Marquis
is a story that fans of the genre will love.
