Meredith Burnely has dedicated her life to providing the care and comfort to her half sister, Annabel. Since the death of their parents, she has always been content to live in the country and remain an on-the-shelf spinster. Then her evil uncle schemes to have her marry his son in order to get access to Annabel's and her inheritance. She escapes and reunites Annabel with her estranged grandparents, thus reigniting a long buried scandal.
While in London she meets the most riveting man she has ever met in her life, Stephen Mallory, the Marquess of Silverton. She finds herself falling madly in love with him, despite the fact that her grandmother would prefer a match between Annabel and Stephen. Stephen finds himself completely captivated by Meredith and he is determined that she will surrender to him and become totally his for the keeping.
Mastering the Marquess is a riveting story of love and acceptance. Meredith is a character that you will root for. Ms. Kelly has created a story that will keep you entranced and engaged. I read this book in one day because the story actually excited my inner reader.
