What Isabella Desires - Anne Mallory

It's a so-so book. Not my favorite just because there were a lot of reveals that felt very heavy handed.

Marcus reminded me a bit of Nicholas Brisbane of the better written Lady Julia Grey series, and while I liked him I never felt a connection with him. Isabella was nice and a little bland and while she blossomed in the latter half of the book, I never really clicked with her either.

Perhaps if things about Marcus had been set up earlier then I would have cared more about their relationship. Not to mention that I would have loved to have an epilogue with Marcus and Isabella just to find out what happened!
