Product Description

A not-so-merry widow…

The widowed Marchioness of Folkestone is notorious for her parties, her art collection, and her utter disregard for the rules. But Ellie Claiborne knows her destruction is near. The new marquess is her first lover – the man whose sculpted body and sardonic grin haunt her every time she picks up her paintbrush. If he ever returns to claim his inheritance, her heart won’t survive seeing him again.

A man determined to destroy her...

Nicholas Claiborne hasn’t stepped foot in England since watching Ellie marry his cousin. He has no use for the gorgeous, heartless girl who betrayed him, or the title she abandoned him for. But when his business in India turns deadly, Nick must return to London to uncover a murderer – and take revenge on the woman he couldn’t force himself to forget.

A love they can’t escape…

Nick hates Ellie’s transformation from sweet debutante to jaded seductress. Ellie despises him for leaving her behind. Still, the sparks between them reignite the passion that should have been their destiny. As their demands of each other turn darker and a potential killer closes in, they must decide whether to guard the fragile remnants of their hearts — or find a way to fall in love all over again.

Her first book, Heiress Without a Cause, was a 2011 Golden Heart finalist. Sara grew up in a small town in Iowa, and her obsession with fashion, shoes, and all things British is clearly a rebellion against her hopelessly uncool youth.

More About the Author

Hopelessly uncool as a child, Sara Ramsey has overcompensated by becoming obsessed with fashion, shoes, and #regencyworldproblems. She has great taste in Champagne, bad taste in movies, and a penchant for tiaras. She also believes in taking naps, wearing sunglasses at night, and using Oxford commas. Sara currently lives in San Francisco, California, where she can be found drinking overly-artistic lattes and working on her next Regency historical romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars A complex historical about revenge and love 4 Sep 2013
By Margaret Fisk - Published on
Originally published on Tales to Tide You Over

I enjoy historical romance. It's been a favorite genre of mine for a very long while. This book, however, takes the genre to another level. It is truly, beyond all others, about mature love. Beyond the fun glimpse into the period through the eyes of the various characters, including a look at the cross-continent trading as well as the lives of the ton, the novel is filled with characters who are complex and compelling, who have stories of their own to tell even if they're not the focus of this book. And Nick and Ellie are definitely among those complex characters.

The story looks at the consequences of two soul mates who found each other when they were too young and still under control, actual and manipulation, of her father. Torn apart by this, neither has been able to move beyond that young love despite the passage of ten years and a lot of maturing. The "coming home" theme in contemporary romance is one I enjoy because there's time for their emotions to mature. I just never expected to find it in a historical romance.

At first, Nick is bent on revenge for how Ellie broke his heart, and she's determined never to let herself be that vulnerable again. They have very real reasons for their attitudes, and both are guilty at least in part, but the book is about how they move past old pains and open themselves to a new future. It's not simply explaining what happened, or even taking responsibility for each of their choices. It's complicated both by the need for self-preservation and by wounds that stab deeper than rational thought.

The Marquess Who Loved Me has the sensual/sexual content people have come to expect, but maybe not in the way they expect. Unlike the latest trends, the initial encounters are all about dominance as in Nick taking the control over Ellie that he thought she had taken over him when she dismissed him as unworthy of her hand. There's a lot more to that particular story, of course, but Nick saw only her cruel cut and comes back determined to own her in every way. It could have gone very dark. Instead, love rears its ugly (to both of them) head and undermines both of their plans to stay untouched and safe.

On top of all of the witty dialogue mixed with social commentary and deep soul searching, there's also a murderer afoot, the need to keep it secret, and the possibility of betrayal from all sides.

It might sound a bit crowded, and in another's hands, it might have been, but every piece from Nick's revenge to Ellie's paintings fit together smoothly. Where something might come from the outside such as the murderer, it is even more likely a result of the blend of relationships and hatreds in their inner circle. Every phrase has a double meaning, and every meaning only serves to offer a plausible, if unwanted, answer to the questions stewing in the minds of the characters.

I started reading another title I'd received through NetGalley and found myself unable to finish for reasons other than craft. Though Sara Ramsey's novel was not next on the list, I thought it might serve as, shall we say, a pallet cleanser. It did that and more. I found myself making excuses to extend my reading time just that bit further, and even got back on the elliptical to capture ten more reading minutes. While I enjoy much of what I read, I don't always seek out other books by the author immediately. In this case, I'm planning to pick up the rest of this series which, I hope, will offer the rest of the tale for certain of the other characters I met and enjoyed.

P.S. NetGalley provided this title in return for an honest review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm.. 15 Sep 2013
By Trish - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm giving this 3 stars because I loved the other two books but at 22% I'm not going to finish this book. When I simply can't stand the hero, I'm done. I'm sure he'll end up being wonderful but that's not good enough for me. Even if revenge is what he's after there has to be something redeeming about him and there's not. He's a total jerk and everything that comes out of his mouth is mean and disgusting.

4.0 out of 5 stars REGENCY WITH A TWIST! 17 April 2013
By April A. Renn - Published on
THE MARQUESS WHO LOVED ME by Sara Ramsey is an exciting Regency Historical Romance set in 1813 London. #3 in the "Muses of Mayfair",but can be read as a stand alone. See,"Heiress Without a Cause" and "Scotsmen Prefer Blondes". Nicholas Claiborne,Marquess of Folkestone is back and determined to destroy, his one true love, Elinor (Ellie)Claiborne,now,the Marchioness of Folkestone,who married his cousin. Ellie is a widow now and Nick has chased a would be murderer from India which brought him back to London and his lost love. Filled with danger,secrets,regret,passion,revenge,forgiveness and love. Be warned though,Nick and Ellie have a somewhat awkward relationship as Nick is determined to seek his revenge by using Ellie's flesh,once they where young lovers intending to marry,but Ellie chose to marry his cousin,Charles,now Nick feels she owes him. He can not seem to move toward forgiveness,and Ellie can not seem to get Nick out of her system and her heart. But when danger threatens both Nick and the one's he loves including Ellie,revenge is the not what he has in mind. Fast paced. Nick and Ellie's story is unique,but an interesting story of lost love,vengeance and finding that love again. Oh, did I mention the passion between Nick and Ellie particularly ignites the pages. It brings the question do you really get over your first love? I would recommend this title for readers who enjoy historical,Regency,romance and a story with a different twist to it. Ms. Ramsey is a great storyteller. I enjoyed "The Marquess Who Loved Me" and am looking forward to the next installment,"The Earl Who Played With Fire", Muses of Mayfair #4 - coming late 2013. Received for an honest review from the author.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Maquess who loved me 21 Feb 2013
By Yolanda - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The cover was great! I just wished the book was better.
I thought Ellie and Nicks story was okay. It was not as good as the other 2 in the series. I liked both of their characters but didn't really feel their love connections as much as with her other books. Yes it was good sex scenes but wanted more then that between H and h.

I thought the parties would of been more scandolous since Ellie she seem more mysterious always up to something in the other books. The book dragged at times but i did enjoy the mystery of someone trying to kill Nick. The secondary characters always good in her books i think they keep you from getting bored at times with main ones arent that interesting at times. I also like catching up with couples from previous books. I can't wait for Prudence's book. You just want her to finally get her knight in shing armour.

I would recomend this series because it is a good read and interesting people and plots. .
