LOVING THE MARQUESS is book one in Suzanna Medeiros’s LANDING A LORD series.

She is on the verge of losing everything…
To save her home and keep her two younger siblings safe, Louisa Evans must turn to the head of the family that ruined hers.

He needs an heir…
The Marquess of Overlea is starting to show signs of having inherited the same illness that killed his father and older brother. To prevent the marquisate from falling into the hands of an unscrupulous cousin, Overlea must secure an heir before that illness also claims him.

But he is determined not to be the father of that heir…
Overlea’s plan is simple—marry the practical, yet desperate, Miss Evans and hold Louisa to her promise to provide him with an heir. But he waits until after they are married to tell his wife that he intends to have another man father that heir. His careful plan becomes complicated by an almost desperate need to claim Louisa for himself and an outside threat that proves even more dangerous than his illness.

John Fitzhugh Wyckerly has been the spare heir all his life, supporting himself with gambling and charm. The news that he’s inherited the bankrupt title of Earl of Danecroft shatters his indolent world. Even penniless, he’s always paid his debts, but now the estate’s creditors are closing in. He can fake his death and run for cover...or accept overwhelming responsibility and find a rich wife—one who will also accept his illegitimate terror of a daughter.

 

On his way to find an heiress, he meets Abigail Merriweather, who is neither rich nor aristocratic, but she can tame The Terror and stomp cockroaches. Unfortunately, she needs a wealthy, powerful man who will fight her father’s executor and retrieve her four half-siblings. When an unexpected inheritance falls into Abby’s lap, she sets out for London to seek a lawyer.

 

Can Fitz charm his practical Abby into trusting him to save her siblings when it’s doubtful that he can even save himself? And can Abby surrender reason and logic for the folly of love offered by a man who can have any woman he wants but insists he wants only her?

“Patricia Rice’s historicals are deliciously fresh, sexy, and fun.”—Mary Jo Putney, author of Not Quite A Wife

 

“Rice is a master storyteller …A wonderful blend of humor, pathos, adventure, and charm, this page-turner is book one in Rice’s promising Rebellious Sons series.” Shelley Mosley, Booklist —a top ten romance for 2010

 

“I loved it. It's a heartwarming tale that kept me smiling all the way through. Every character entertains and satisfies, from the engaging scapegrace hero who I loved more and more through the book, his wild and insecure love-child and the loving, down-to-earth heroine, right down to the devious old butler and the dyslexic assassin. It's a sweet, sexy, fun romp with so much heart. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.” Anne Gracie, author of The Winter Bride
