… it was hard not to notice the generous lips, the wide mouth that he thought would produce a brilliant smile. Her entire being seemed to glow, and he wondered, what it might feel like to bask in that short of light. To be the sole focus of it, to entangle oneself in it—
The Marquess of Yew Park House is a lovely highland romance with plenty of heart.
A brooding marquess
And a mysterious widow
On the outside Henry Spencer, Marquess of Clairborne, has it all: title, fortune and dashing good looks. Inside he’s haunted by nightmares. Seeking sanctuary at his Scottish estate, his peace is disturbed by a new tenant, widow Genevieve de l’Omont. Her beauty and spirit lead to a growing desire that distracts him from his troubles, but as he unravels a mystery from his past, he discovers Genevieve has secrets of her own…
The Marquees of Yew Park House is a lovely romance that shows its readers that true love conquers all. I enjoyed the flow and pacing of the book. I love how Lotte included a mystery element in the story. It created many opportunities for twists and turns in the plot, which kept me engaged and wanting more.
Lotte did such a fantastic job creating a lush and vivid description of the highlands. As a reader, I felt like I was being transported to Genevieve’s cozy cottage or gazing out into the shimmering waters of the Loch.
The romance between Henry and Genevieve has that hidden/beta romance trope feels to it. Henry is a good guy and a great romance hero. His heart is always in the right place, and he is so good to Genevieve and her daughter Elizbeth. The spicy moments between Henry and Genevieve will warm you up during this cold winter season.
Thank you Mills and Boon, Harlequin, and Rachel Random Resources for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
