Date Read: September 25, 2018


A Marquess in Waiting and the Cursed Heiress…

The ton is abuzz and mamas are lining up their daughters; identical twins Maximus and Lucius St. Albans are making their entry into society. But they’re not just eligible―they’re the missing grandsons of the Duke of Warrington, stolen as infants.

However, Maximus doesn’t relish the battle with his cocky, reprobate brother to be the next Marquess. And he has no time for the simpering misses now vying for his attention. Only Miss Sabina Teverton has his interest.

She was resigned to life as a spinster but from the moment Sabina meets Lord Maximus, her heart is torn. She dreams of a match with him―but how can that be when she’s been branded as cursed…and she knows secrets of that night long ago when Maximus and his twin were snatched from their cradles?

Twin grandsons of the Duke of Warrington disappeared as babes and are presumed dead. They were found by Larentia St. Albans, a spinster, who raised them with help from her father. She named them Maximus and Lucius and they had a good life with her until they visited London, where they discover they are heirs to a dukedom.
At the theater one night, Max sees Sabina Teverton and is attracted to her. Sabina is a little older and considers herself a spinster. Her mother, a widow, has always been mean to her so she lives with Lady March and the Duke as they took her in when she was a child.
Their grandfather insists they move in with him and their mother, Lady March. They agree if Larentia, the only mother they know, comes with them. Their father had died in a carriage accident while he was searching for his infant sons. As they were kidnapped, it is unknown who is the elder son and the Duke’s heir.

Their uncle, Lord Daniel, hosts a house party for them. Lucius takes to his uncle, but Max is suspicious. Sabina loves Max but feels unworthy. I won’t ruin the rest of the story as I will not spoil a good book, however there may be more than 1 HEA. I can easily recommend this book. It’s a keeper.Recommended
