When a Marquis Chooses a Bride

Ella Quinn. Zebra Shout, $4.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-1-4201-3957-0
Quinn’s second Worthington Regency improves on its predecessor (Three Weeks to Wed), retaining the charm and verve and delivering a more satisfying plot. Miss Dorothea “Dotty” Stern, heroine to abandoned animals and people in peril, is glum when it starts to look like she’ll have to miss her long-anticipated social debut with her best friend. When she gets her season after all, hosted by her friend’s family, she must promise her parents to curb her impulse to take in strays. Naturally, she stretches the spirit of her pledge when she meets Dominic Merton, a marquis who’s notorious for his arrogance and heartless political positions. Enthralled by Dotty’s passion, the stuffy and amusingly conflicted Dominic must find a way to woo her without committing the greatest faux pas: falling in love. Amid rescued kittens and thwarted human trafficking circles, Dominic and Dotty’s genuine romance grows in the face of credible obstacles, thrumming with satisfying passion. This is a strong continuation of an appealing series. Agent: Elizabeth Pomada, Larsen-Pomada Literary Agency. (Sept.)
