Publisher's Summary

Certainly the two should never have met.

The handsome, wealthy Marquess of Rockingham was the most notorious man in London, as infamous for his violent temper as he was for his intemperate ways.

Miss Lucinda Westerville was a country vicar's daughter, as innocent as she was lovely and as proper as a young lady could possibly be. Yet when this improbably matched pair met at a glittering social ball, they had struck the dubious bargain to become man and wife - in name only. But Lucinda soon found that she had taken on more than she bargained for when she vowed not to love this untamed, infuriatingly attractive man, when she tried to rein her own foolishly galloping heart.

    "Predictable"

    This book follows all other MC Beaton Regency series in its plot. Unlikely girl meets 30 something titled man, they hate each other, complications ensue, they fall in love, the end. OK for walking the dog but not interesting enough for a long car drive. Hamlisch Macbeth and Agatha Raisin are far superior.

    "It's Something New To Me!!!"

    This is my first with MC Beaton, and also my new venture to pick short story, in short my first impression of the title that is it's a combination of Barbara Cartland+Alfred Hitchcock+Agatha Christie that's why it becomes my new experience. I still want to venture another titles from the author to see if I can find something memorable and enjoyable to listen more than once.

    Story
    "Excellent narrator, Terrible story."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A completely different plot. It is hard to believe this is historical romance at all. In is not until the last four minutes of the audio book that there is even a hint of feeling between the two main characters. What makes this a 2 star rating for me is that the main story line is about side characters. Mainly, the hero's murderess mistrees and two lady's maids, one who ends up murdered. There are chapters where there is no mention of the hero and heroine at all! The communications between the hero and heroine is comical and childish. The Marquess of Rockingham has a terrible temper and it is sooo not sexy but rather childish and boring when it happens everytime he is written about.


    Would you ever listen to anything by M. C. Beaton again?

    Absolutely. Historical Romance written by M. C. Beaton are among my favorite audio books.


    Have you listened to any of Lindy Nettleton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes! I simply adore Lindy Nettleton's audio performances. She reads this book quite well as she does the others I have listened to.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Savage Marquess?

    The Marquess' mistress needn't be an maniacal, opium crazed women to seem unlikeable. Any scene where she is murdering or attempting murder I could have done without. Also, any scene with the stupid fop, Zeus Carter ( the cousin of the Marquess) could have been deleted.


    Any additional comments?

    Where was the romance? This book was like a poorly written Victorian crime book. Not good.
