Product Description

Blurb:
HE LIVED FOR HIS DUTY…
Tristan’s grandfather lost the family fortune and the Devonwood earldom still hasn’t recovered under his father’s tenure. In order to save the estate from disaster, Tristan is determined to wed the daughter of a duke. Lady Florence’s dowry is reputedly hefty enough to sink a frigate, so Tristan will shoulder the family’s burden, even if it means a loveless match.

TILL SHE TAUGHT HIM TO LIVE FOR DESIRE
When he first lays eyes on Delphinia Preston, he knows she’s trouble in a gorgeous blue dress. Despite the rumors about her being a half-gypsy witch, there’s something about the grey-eyed beauty that calls to Tristan. And he can’t keep himself from answering, even if it means wrecking all his carefully laid plans…


Touch of a Lady is the prequel for Mia Marlowe’s Touch of Seduction series.

More About the Author

Mia Marlowe has always been a dedicated Anglophile and is proud her ancestors came to America from England. Of course, since they made the trip in the 1600's, it probably means they were in a spot of trouble in the UK, but she tries not to dwell on that. Especially since she loves setting her historical romances in England, Scotland and Ireland (along with a few Viking tales that wander a bit further afield.)

Mia's work was featured in the Best of 2010 edition of PEOPLE magazine. She regularly receives starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and raves from other review sites. Her books have been translated into over nine different languages and she will pass the twenty published novels milepost in 2013. For more info, visit www.miamarlowe.com.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cop a Feel + Wardrobe = Love 2 Oct 2012
By Frankie Blooding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I have to start off by saying that Ms. Marlowe did a great job in capturing the feel of the era while providing a clean voice. Sometimes, with historicals, you get the authors who really did their research, and then laden the narrative with the voice of that era, which was really...*thinking* Let's just say that things were slower then, so they had a lot of time to say a single sentence, which could, really, last an entire page. The Voice of this book was historical and fresh, which instantly drew me into the book.

The characters were good as well. I liked the fact that Del wasn't searching for a man, but her eyes were open for it. She is a really neat character. I would "friend" her on Facebook and put her in my news feed. This wasn't one of those books where the helpless female had to find a man who would sweep her off her feet and save her from a life of destitution.

The setting was clear. I could see it well. Ms. Marlowe painted a lot of really strong story structural elements to make this a fantastic story.

The thing that killed it for me was the romantic plot element, and because this is a romance, this structural element had to be strong. The connection between the two characters was instant and sizzling, and I loved that! But...Del touches a ring, there's kissing, a touch of a boob, a wardrobe, and then they're both instantly in love with each other. And this happened in one day.

Really? I felt the lust. I did. It was hot and lovely. Tingly! Very tingly!

Love? *floundering* No.

The story went on after that, and by the end of the book, I felt the love element. However, it felt like a "love for the sake of love" story for me. It could be that I'm a bit of a cynic. Well, I know I am, but I still love a good romance. I love to be swept away by the discovery of it. There was no "discovery". It was cop a feel, stir, instant love. I wanted more.

There's a lot of great potential with this author! She really has a gift for telling a story. There is, however, room to grow. Did I love this story? No. Will I read the next one? YES!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great way to see how it all started 5 April 2013
By Melody May - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
While I was at the gym I decided I wanted to read a novella. So, todays selection is Touch of a Lady by Mia Marlowe. I don't know how many of you have read book three of Touch of Seduction series. If you haven't then this a great start to introduce Delphinia Preston and Tristan Chalcroft Nash, Viscount Edmonstone, heir to the Earl of Devonwood. How their love was form.

I enjoyed that Delphinia isn't your typical heroine. Actually, I wonder if there is a bit of gypsy in her blood. Anyways, she tries to show Tristan there is more things to life than trying to save the family by marrying without love. Yet, Tristan is so stubborn about saving the family. I guess that is an endearing quality in some, then again it can get you into trouble.

Overall, I enjoyed the story. However, I did have to tell myself to breath at times. Even though I knew how it would end, because I did read Touch of a Scoundrel before reading Touch of a Lady. So, if you are looking to start something new and haven't read any of Touch of Seduction stories, I would suggest starting with the novella.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming romance! 12 Aug 2013
By Nicole Laverdure - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this short novella that I read last Spring. I forgot to write my review, so here is a brief one.
It is the perfect read for an afternoon break! It's sweet, charming and well written.
I loved her characters which Ms. Marlowe knew how to blend them into her story.
I recommend this book if you love historical romances!
