Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Maxwell infuses the first of her new series with great depth of emotion. Readers will experience her characters’ anger, frustration, sadness and joy, and they’ll sigh with satisfaction at this master storyteller’s ability to create a delightful, emotional read.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Maxwell delivers sweetly scintillating romance spiced with a dash of mystery in the first novel of her Marrying the Duke Regency series…The focus on strong characterization sets the stage for an exceptionally cozy read and heightens anticipation for the rest of the series.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The characters are likable but just foolish enough to experience a satisfying amount of personal growth over the course of the story.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Mary Jane Wells employs an airy voice in spinning the story of Elin Morris…Wells uses slight tonal differences to differentiate the main characters…Her strongest suit is displayed in the various accents she gives to servants and lesser characters.” AudioFile
