Book Description

A Marquis For All Seasons by Renee Reynolds

The Indie Book of the Day for 8th of October, 2014!

Genre: Humor, Romance

She wants one more Season to pass without acquiring a husband. 

Lady Miranda Leighton accepts she will have to marry someday, but she wants one last Season to be mistress of her own life – to go where she wants, when she wants, with whomever she wants. The lure of one more adventure is nearly irresistible. Unfortunately, her family has run out of patience with her as she unintentionally loosely courts scandal. She needs a plan, and needs it quickly. 

He wants one more Season to pass without his mother harassing, debutantes stalking, or sanity deserting him. 

Roman de Courtenay, Marquis of Stafford, accepts he will have to marry someday, but his immediate focus is set on managing his estates, pacifying his family, and being otherwise left alone. The lure of saddling his horse and fleeing to the country is nearly irresistible. Unfortunately, his mother wants him to find his marchioness, produce an heir, and let her settle into an anticipated and comfortable life as a dowager. He needs a plan, and needs it quickly. 

Thus a lady and a lord with a similar problem hatch a mischievous scheme: to use each other as shields against marriage and the plans of their families, with a dance here and a meaningful look there. All goes well – for a time – until the constant company and camaraderie of their ruse give rise to some very real feelings. So what happens when you set out to fool society, but only end up fooling yourselves? 

A Marquis For All Seasons is Book 2 in The Lords of Oxford Series. Each book stands alone, but readers are cautioned that some aspects of the first book, Lord Love a Duke, are referenced.

Read Sample

Author Renée Reynolds grew up all over the world as the daughter of a globe-trotting Marine father and spirited and supportive mother. Their family motto was you can never learn too much, travel too much, or talk too much.

She majored in majors in college, and after obtaining a host of degrees she decided not to use any of them and instead writes about what she cannot do – go back in time to dance at balls, flirt with lords, gentlemen, and scoundrels, and gallop unfashionably down Rotten Row during the most fashionable hour.

After dodging a few Collinses and Wickhams, Renée happily snared a Darcy. Her HEA turned out to be in Texas, where she resides with “the hubs, the kiddos, a boisterous menagerie of indoor and outdoor animals, and a yard of meticulously maintained weeds.” She has happily tagged on this addendum to the family motto: you can never read too much, too often, or too late at night.
