The only way to celebrate a divorce is by drinking far too much and dancing on tables, just as Nell has done in Her Missing Marquess by Scarlett Scott. She has devoted these past three years to wild parties with far too much alcohol and explicit behavior following Lord Needham’s betrayal. What else was she expected to do after he left? However, her world is promptly turned upside down when her husband walks through the door the same day with every intent to win her back. Nell longs for true love, a family, and a lasting marriage, but all of her hopes were dashed on that fateful evening and she’s unsure she can trust anyone, least of all her husband Jack. She has no intention of letting him have a second chance and must find a way to reason with him to finally let her go. Yet, neither can deny the powerful attraction and pull between them. Will he be able to prove to her that his heart is undoubtedly hers or will she leave him once and for all?
Have you ever heard of a book hangover? A book hangover is, essentially, when a book ends and the attachment to the book is severed, causing some type of distress. I could not think of a better term to describe how I felt after reading Her Missing Marquess by Scarlett Scott. I didn’t want it to end. I have previously read books by Scarlett Scott and enjoyed her use of imagery and feeling. This book was no different. If anything, I think it was done even better in this book. Her Missing Marquess is filled with emotion – good, bad, and everything in between. At times, I could feel every nuance of emotion that went through Lady Nell. The imagery brought the world to life and I simply could not put it down. This book has the highest of praise from me and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys this genre.
