Drawn to the Marquess by Bronwen Evans ~ a Review

by MK French

Drawn to the Marquess
September 2018; Loveswept
ebook (223 pages); Regency romance
Penelope had been trapped in a terrible marriage for six years before her husband died, allowing her prior properties and money to revert back to her. Her brother-in-law wants to seize that fortune by proving that her husband's death was murder, so Penelope enlists Stephen Hornsby, the Marquess of Clarendon. He's a rake she's determined not to fall for and has contacts that could help her.

This is a rather seasoned formula for Regency romances, as the titled lord with contacts must be convinced to rescue the damsel in distress. Penelope isn't fresh out of the schoolroom, which is nice, and she is very self-assured and helpful to the people in her country village. Stephen has his own issue, as he is slowly going blind and trying to race against time to see every beautiful thing he can before that happens. Penelope figures out his secret fairly early on, and Stephen figures out her secret toward the end of the novel, temporarily driving a wedge between them. The two really do make a good match, as they're both stubborn and independent while longing for someone special to share their lives with. They are surrounded by loving and supportive friends and family, which makes for a warm and easygoing story before the action kicks in at the very end.
