Marriage Minded Lord Review...

Marriage Minded Lord
By: Sandra Sookoo

When an outrageous meeting leads to inappropriate desire, will family honor and duty destroy a chance for true love?

Felix Alan Darrington, Earl of Swandon has been summoned to London by his mother. Though he has obligations to Parliament, his meddling parent has reminded him it’s time to do his duty, marry and provide her with grandchildren. But Felix refuses to wed under dictate. He’ll choose the woman and the time, and if he’s lucky he’ll marry for love.

Clarice Delacroix is a lady’s companion. Though she’s an illegitimate daughter of a duke, her mother was a French opera singer which puts Clarice firmly between worlds. Possessed of a quick temper and a penchant for making pastries, she longs for adventure, romance and acceptance, but she refuses to be anyone’s mistress. Her mother’s life is not for her.

As Felix schemes to spend more time with Clarice and find out why the Frenchwoman intrigues him, the titled lady who wishes to be his countess conspires to keep them apart. Felix quickly finds that balancing relationships between family and love is not as easy as first thought, or as black and white. Someone in his circle isn’t telling the truth, and the repercussions could prove deadly to Clarice’s future.



I fell in love with this book as soon as I picked it up.  The author pulls you into an enticing world of love, aristocracy, and divisions of class.  Felix falls for a young woman's companion named Clarice.  However, the young woman Olivia wants Felix for herself and thinks he is falling for her instead of Clarice.  Clarice portrays a lowly companion but is actually of a higher class than she lets on through both sides of the family.

This book is a mini historical romance comedy.  It has a good mix of a little bit of everything in it.  I laughed so hard that I was crying in some parts.  I got through half of it in a couple hour period but then I didn't want it to end so I drug it out as much as possible.

This book was twice as good as I thought it would be and well worth the read!  I would definitely recommend this book to anybody and everybody I know!

5 out of 5 stars
