Charming, beguiling, captivating - all words I most likely used when I reviewed this author's previous book, Bella's Betrothal. And they most certainly apply to Mariah's Marriage - both the story and its heroine.
Mariah is a young woman living in nineteenth-century London. But the accepted and expected pursuits of a lady of her age and class are not for her. Mariah is independent and ahead of her time in her outlook. She teaches poor children who would otherwise have no education. Her commitment is wholehearted. The she meets and falls in love with Tobias Longreach (I just love Anne's choice of character names). But pursuing this relationship brings her work into question and even endangers her life.
Great storytelling, conscientious attention to detail, credible and interesting characters all make for an absorbing read. And there's plenty suspense, intrigue and romance too.
A warm and satisfying read.
Type of read: Romantic enchanting escapism. A curl up with your e-reader of choice and a glass of something red and full-bodied and prepare to indulge in some delightful escapism.

Doesn't it give you a thrill to see `London 1822' at the beginning of a book? You know you're about to be transported back to the elegant Regency era. Here, we know right away that Mariah is not typical of her class - `She'd just spent an hour teaching sixty urchins their letters ...' As she leaves the schoolroom and stumbles on the street to avoid a charging pig, she is caught by a passing stranger. This is the man we later find to be Toby Longreach, seventh Earl of Mellon `who walked with an air that told Mariah he was used to command'. The course of their subsequent relationship is thwarted at various turns, climaxing with the headstrong Mariah being in real danger from the obnoxious, debt-stricken Sir Lucas Wellwood who is determined that his sister will marry Toby.
Mariah and Toby are real flesh-and-blood characters and I loved their story - look forward to hearing more from Anne Stenhouse.

I loved the cut and thrust of the dialogue between the leading characters in this romance, which brings to mind the duelling which we learn is going out of fashion in Regency London. It's an original plot too; a heroine with a vocation, a hero doing most of the pursuing,a wonderfully colourful villain and a scary climax.The writing is stylish and full of period detail. I hope Anne Stenhouse has more novels in the pipeline.

In many ways this is an unusual departure from the 'standard' Regency novel and all the more entertaining for its originality.
The heroine, Mariah, is feisty and determined and from the first time we meet her with Tobias Longreach (and a pig!) we know we are in for a great read.
Without wanting to spoil the plot, the villain is particularly well drawn and the period detail skilfully woven in to the story and to the dialogue.
The course of true love certainly doesn't run smooth and there are a number of edgy episodes culminating in a finale where Mariah is in serious danger.
This is a book which will appeal to many readers and not only to fans of Regency novels.

Good strong characters. A villain, a heroine, a pompous would be lover, a hero, who has a Mother - all the ingredients for a good romantic read especially from this era. The villain was more villainous than I expected, which made for a better read. Looking forward to Anne's next book.

Mariah's Marriage has a refreshingly intelligent heroine and an engaging hero who recognises her worth. I really enjoyed the background details of Mariah's aim to educate the ragged children in the early 1820s, while falling for the charms of an Earl almost against her will. Several little touches made this a worthy debut novel: the Earl's Spanish mother, the aforementioned education theme, a dastardly villain who would stop at nothing to get what he wanted, and a sweet, believable romance. I look forward to Ms Stenhouse's next historical novel.

This was a fast paced, entertaining and detailed tale of a young woman's unexpected romance with her saviour from a nasty incident involving a rouge swine in 1820s London.

I was surprised by the level of character development in such a short novel, and by the end I was racing through the pages to reach the dramatic finale.

Well done Anne Stenhouse and I will be on to your next work imminently!

I don't normally read historical romances but I've changed my mind after reading this little gem.
This was so much more than a romance & I ended up reading the whole book in one sitting.
This book has piqued my interest in historical romances & ill certainly be looking to read more from this author soon.
I received this from the author in return for an honest review.
