    • Abstract:
      Summary: "For James Trent, Lord Huntington, there's no escaping the question that labeled him The Murdering Marquess: was his wife's death a tragic accident or a cold-blooded crime? He's avoided London's gossipmongers since that terrible night, as guardian to his younger siblings on his Essex estate. But trouble finds him when a veiled temptress with secrets of her own falls--quite literally--into his arms."--

Caroline Lawrence would rather be a journalist than a wife. She writes about women's rights in a progressive newspaper under a pen name and sees no reason to marry unless she can find a man who appreciates her intellect. James Trent, Lord Huntington, has no desire to marry either. Known as "The Murdering Marquess" because of the untrue rumors that he killed his wife, James would rather focus on raising his younger siblings and stay away from London society. When a suffragist's speech brings the two together, they hide the whole truth about themselves, and try to stay away from each other in spite of undeniable physical attraction and mutual respect and admiration. It will take deciphering facts from rumors to make a relationship possible. Smart writing and a cast of memorable characters make up for the too-convenient plot points that drive this story forward. Miller (Never Deceive a Viscount, 2018) successfully uses beloved character trait tropes—the smart, independent heroine and misunderstood hero—to create a couple wholly deserving of each other.

Miller delivers memorable characters in the third Infamous Lords Victorian (after Never Dare a Wicked Earl). Twenty-year-old Caroline Lawrence is a young lady of means in 1878 England. She's also a closet suffragette and secret journalist in a time when women are expected to be seen and not heard. When she's injured at a suffrage rally, Caroline literally falls at the feet of James Trent, Lord Huntington, a man of less than sterling reputation—there are rumors that he murdered his late wife. James has tired of high society's ways and mostly retreated to the country to finish raising his three younger and somewhat troublesome siblings. He never expected to swoon for a green-eyed women's rights advocate. The pair of them waltz around their attraction, weaving a web of well-intentioned lies and intrigue that threatens to strangle them. When she returns to London, James's teenage sister follows her, and he must plunge back into the social world he hates—including dealing with his delightful dragon of a grandmother—to get them back. This tale of love and social progress, though sometimes trite, comes across as mostly light and sweet. (May)
