Elizabeth Hotchkiss needed to marry but her options were limited. Soon she finds a book at her employers house that looks to be like a guide to find a husband. She will be finding a person willing to let her practice on, the new estate manager James Sidwell.
James Sidwell, the Marquis of Riverdale, is playing the role of estate manager to help his Aunt find the blackmailer. James will be side tracked with Elizabeth determining if she was the blackmailer but soon finds that she is temptation, not a threat.
How to Marry a Marquis is the second book to the series Agents for the Crown. This was a fun second and last book to this series from Julia Quinn. James was what I expected. He had humor and was a good man for coming to the aid of his Aunt. There is a little deception that happens but it is not done maliciously towards Elizabeth. Now Elizabeth is someone who is doing her best for her siblings with very little means. Quinn weaves into the book with humor that will make you smile as you read the book.
I did like that all was not what it seemed. There was a little surprise at the end which helps give a conclusion to the blackmailer problem, so all worked out for the best. How to Marry a Marquis was another good book from Julia Quinn.
