This book was disappointing, boring and not very memorable!
Usually there is lots of danger and the heroine always manages to find herself in need of rescuing, that wasn't the case here, in fact there was so little danger and their 'courtship' was so short and boring, I don't know why they even bothered, they only met twice before Max went to see Daphne's father and ask his permission to marry her, all without her knowledge!
The characters were two dimensional and not even likeable.
The hen-pecked father,stepsisters and an evil stepmother storyline was clichéd and unoriginal.

I agree with a previous reviewer, it did stop suddenly and not on a very exciting cliffhanger either.

Will I read the rest of the series? No I don't think I'll bother.

As a side note....

I found the layout of the book very weird as well, was the printer getting paid by how many hyphens he put in the book? There are 10 on pages 226 & 227 alone! It looks as though they indicate pauses, but they are everywhere and people just don't pause, in their speech, that often! Also whenever the word 'service' appeared, it had a hyphen in it e.g ser-vice (see pages 71 & 369), what was the point of that?

I have bought and read every book written by Gaelen Foley, from the wonderful "Pirate Prince", through the marvellous Knight miscellany series, the less marvellous Spice series and finally to My Wicked Marquess - the dullest book ever written. I don't think I'll be buying any more of her novels! What has happened? This was cliched, clumsily written and utterly lacking in anything resembling romance or passion. I found myself skimming through the last 50 or so pages, I was so desperate for it to end.

If you have never read any Gaelen Foley, do yourself a favour and start with "The Duke" and work your way through to "His Wicked Kiss" - and then stop there! If, like me, you are a long-time fan - don't waste your time on the trite and passionless "My Wicked Marquess".

It's hard to believe that the reviewers who gave this a positive score have read the same book as me! This is the American edition of the novel - the UK edition is out soon. There are a number of reviews on the American Amazon site as the book was released there a couple of months ago - the reviews average out at a measly 3 stars.

Format: Paperback
Max St Albans, the Marquess of Rotherstone, is part of a secret group called the Inferno Club. Many believe members are just rakes, men that respectable ladies should avoid due to their reputations. But this is just a cover, for members have been sworn to defend England and the secrets about some scrolls found during the Crusades, as if they ever went into the wrong hands, disaster could strike. Now back from Waterloo after killing an assassin, he's back in London looking for a respectable bride who people adore to aid him being accepted back into society, something he's long desired. A friend sends him a list of potentially suitable brides, but it's Miss Daphne Starling who catches his eye. She has long been helping children at the orphanage on the rougher side of town, bringing them clothes and blankets, and trying to ensure they will not go down the wrong path. Her father, Lord Starling, and stepmother, want her to marry, but she is in no rush. She has refused many suitors, including Lord Carew, who happens to be Max's childhood enemy. Max spies on her doing her good deeds from a brothel window, but then she becomes in danger, and although he doesn't want to meet this way, knows he has to intervene. He pretends he's drunk, coming out of the brothel dishevelled, dropping money so the attackers take the bait. She runs off, but realises she cannot leave a drunk unarmed man alone, so she returns to find he's beating the hell out of them. Daphne realises he wasn't drunk at all and just wanted to help, but remembers he was in a brothel and this upsets her. Max sees her come back and is touched that she cared. He goes behind her back to ask her father if he can marry his daughter.Read more ›

This was the sort of well-written and passionate story that we have come to know and love from Gaelen Foley, so far, so good. The only problem with this story is that it is very much one episode in a series, so the story just STOPPED - I turned the page and there was no more!! And whilst I enjoy stories being linked together (and very much enjoyed the extended Knight saga!) it was somewhat disappointing to have it quite so drastically cut off!! And with a tentative date of a year hence before we can read the next installment, not a terribly satisfying read....

I bought this because I have a few of Ms Foley's earlier books that I had reasonably enjoyed. I wish I had not! The plot was thin and mundane to say the least, with danger only hinted at. As for passion, there was precious little real emotion in the story unless Ms Foley is now under the impression that a collection of 21st century swearwords would have been used for passion in the 19th century? The only way you would have known this novel was meant to be set in the 19th century would be from the odd references to carriages and ocasional obscure mention of the monarchy. This is exactly the type of book that puts me off reading American authors who try to write about 19th century England. The only glaringly obvious faults thankfully missing from this effort were the usual American mistakes of using such words as 'Fall', 'block' & 'creek'. If American authors wish to write about England, the least they could do is get the language & behaviour of the period correct! Do not waste your money on this if you are an English reader who is well acquainted with the period.
