NEW RELEASE: When A Marquis Chooses A Bride by Ella Quinn


Excerpt


“Dotty,” Matt’s stepmother, the Dowager Lady Worthington said, “how did you like your stroll in the Park today?”
“It was very nice, except for my encounter with a certain gentleman. My father had told me about dandies, yet I did not have a good appreciation of what he meant until I saw one today.”
 “My dear”—the Dowager Lady Worthington’s smooth forehead wrinkled—“you make it sound like something from a freak show. Are you sure you are being kind?”
Louisa glanced at them. “Mama, it was Mr. Fotherby.”
Matt coughed. “Then it must have seemed more like something from the Royal Menagerie.” His eyes danced with mirth. “But, Dotty, you cannot call Fotherby a dandy. That is to be unfair to those who truly are. He is a macaroni.”
She furrowed her brow. “What is the difference?”
“A dandy might be extreme in his shirt points, but he takes care to always be subtle in his costume and is an adherent of Brummell’s philosophy that one should do nothing to draw attention to one’s dress.”
“Are you a dandy?”
Matt grimaced. “If I must claim a group, it would be the Corinthians. We are a more sporting bunch.”
“Do not listen to him, my dear.” Lady Worthington shook her head at Matt. “He’ll make fun of any of the macaroni set. You will see a lot of them, though perhaps, none quite so . . . stunning as Lord Fotherby.”
Louisa told them about Dotty saving the puppy then added, “Merton was with him.”
“Louisa, remember.” Grace’s calm tone held a note of warning. “We have all agreed to treat him with courtesy.”

When A Marquis Chooses A Bride (The Worthingtons, Book 2)


Thanks to their large extended family and unconventional courtship, the Worthingtons have seen their share of scandal and excitement. But nothing has prepared them for this...

The Dowager Lady Worthington isn’t quite sure what to make of country-girl Dorothea Stern. As the granddaughter of the Duke of Bristol, Dotty is schooled in the ways and means of the nobility. But her sharp wit and outspoken nature has everyone in a tizzy. Especially their cousin, Dominic, the Marquis of Merton.

Prematurely stuffy, Dom was raised by his cheerless uncle to be wary of a host of things, including innovation, waltzing, and most perilous of all: true love. Still, there’s something about Dotty, beyond her beauty, that Dom cannot resist. But the odds are against him if he intends to win her as his bride. Will he choose loyalty to his family—or risk everything for the one woman he believes is his perfect match…
