Making the Marquess Mine
Miles Weston, the Marquess of Hawksridge, longs for a holiday from his life. He is tired of all the politics, in and out of the ballrooms. Ever since his aborted wedding, his aunt has tried to match him with blank-faced debutants at every turn. The only entertaining thing in his overscheduled life is observing the antics of Lady Susanna Ashby, whose beauty and vibrancy brighten the greyest day.
Susanna's spirit for adventure is matched only by her loyalty to her friends. Determined to help the distractingly handsome but overwhelmingly serious marquess, Susanna concocts a plan to distract his matchmaking Aunt Diana. She'll reunite Diana with her long-lost lover, who wrote her passionate letters of love and longing. If only Susanna could discover the whereabouts of the mysterious James Marlow.
As Susanna launches her ill-fated plan, heedless of the danger, her worried friends send Miles to fetch her home. But Susanna has no intention of letting anything derail her quest to find the man from the letters. Not bad weather, broken carriage wheels, or highwaymen. Not even a sexy, managing marquess.
Reviews for Making the Marquess Mine
"Making the Marquess Mine by Karla Kratovil is riveting. This friends-to-lovers romance I won’t soon forget...as the saying goes, opposites attract. Miles and Susanna’s attraction is swoon-worthy hot! The beautiful characters are uniquely written. In addition, the action scenes are crafted excellently. Finally, the romantic scenes are tastefully steamy—four out of five on the spice meter. I am a fan. Five stars."

WONDERFUL!!!! Making the Marquess Mine by Karla Kratovil is book 4 in the The Maidens of Marbury series and I so loved Miles and Susanna’s story. Though in a series this book can be read as a standalone. Karla has become a new favorite author of mine and I am so enjoying her books. What I enjoy most is how original they are especially Making the Marquess Mine which includes a circus. I found this book easy to read, original, had the real feel of the regency era, vivid descriptions, well written and just so fun to read but I will admit it gets a tad steamy in places.
