My Review of The Marquess Next Door
I am a fan of Virginia’s writing and I enjoy the way she creates unique and refreshing characters for each book.
The Marquess Next Door is thrilling, heartwarming, and endearing. Hope and Luke’s story moves through many highs and lows, from passion to misunderstanding, from anger to love. The writing is as amazing as ever, hooking you from the first page and keeping you interested.
I love that Hope has meaningful academic pursuits and that Luke prefers the quiet life to the artificial city life. The author sends an important message that a woman can be more than just physically beautiful and men can bond with women through wit and intelligence.
The missives from “Whispers from Behind the Fan” reminded me of Bridgerton, but the similarities end there. The romantic scenes are so full of love and hope and soul, my heart was full reading them.
The Marquess Next Door talks about how women are more than just beautiful bodies to be lusted after. It describes how women need to hide behind the name of a man to be taken seriously. The story is progressive and sets a good example of how an ideal relationship should look.
I can say with confidence that if you enjoy the historical romance genre, this is a book you should not miss.

About Virginia Heath
Author Bio – When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Despite that, it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
