Due to rigid and often illogical rules set by the Ton of Regency England, Daisy Vincent is forced into marriage with William, Marquess of Ashton. She might feel forced, but William is more than eager to bind himself to the delightfully outspoken young woman. Life with her will require . . . persistence.
Author Susan Payne, an avowed follower of the Regency romances fashioned by Dame Barbara Cartland, took her lessons to heart and brought them to The Persistent Marquess. Using her talent for colloquial dialogue as well as creating elaborate settings, the pages turn quickly and put the reader right there in the middle of a budding relationship and behaviors often governed by rigid social norms of the time.
For fans of romances written with Dame Cartland in mind, this is the book for you.
On a scale of 1-5, The Persistent Marquess deserves a 4.
