Book Review: My Wicked Marquess

(I'll admit it now, I love Gaelen Foley novels! A lot of people have negative views on them, but I simply adore them. They arn't just smutty historical romance books, they actually have some depth and complex storylines. I've read all her series and now I'm starting on her new series: Inferno Club series. 'My Wicked Marquess' is the first of the series.)

Author: Gaelen Foley
Title: My Wicked Marquess (1st in Inferno Series)
Genre: Historical Romance, Spy Thriller, Regency
Pages: 384
First Published: 2009
Where I Got It: Library

"To London's aristocracy, the Inferno Club is a scandalous society of men no proper young lady would acknowledge. But though they are publicly notorious, in private they are warriors who would do anything to protect king and country. The Marquess of Rotherstone has decided it's time to restore his family's good name. But as a member of the Inferno Club, he knows there's only one way to redeem himself in Society's eyes: Marry a lady of impeccable beauty and breeding whose reputation is spotless. Someone quite unlike Daphne Starling."

Okay, to start off I hate Daphne and other characters like her! Not only is she beauty and smart and everyone likes her. She's also kind and overall perfect. I hate perfect characters! Literally, I was driven mad by her perfectness. That comes with books like these. The herione and hero tend to be perfect. That's life, I guess. I personally like characters that are complex like Max, the hero. He's not all perfect and all that. He tends to be opposite of perfect.

I love how Gaelen Foley made this Order of St. Michael. It was very original! I love the thought she put into this Order and even how she wrote the book. The ending was an ending, but it leaves you dieing for the next book to see what happens. There were a lot of twists and turns, but it mainly focused on Max and Daphne. It was a pretty cute read for those who like romance and intrigue. For those who love Gaelen Foley, it's not her best work, but it's pretty decent. If you have nothing better else to read at the moment, check this book out. I grant this book *** stars. Daphne killed a star, sorry. =)
