Read an Excerpt from Married by Twelfth Night by Ella Quinn

“Good morning, Markville.” Lady Hawksworth smiled at him. “Euphrosyne, allow me to make you known to the Marquis of Markville. Markville, my sister-in-law, Lady Euphrosyne Trevor.”

As he bowed, he admired her graceful curtsey. “My pleasure.” How old was she? Surely she was out. “Were you not in Town last Season? I am sure we would have met.”

“No.”

Her cheeks colored slightly, not with shyness, but with barely subdued anger, Markville suspected.

“I should have been out last year, but our father decided none of us needed a Season.”

Well, that was plain speaking. He liked her better for it. “What a pity.” Her eyes flashed for a moment. When she turned toward a white horse, he approached her. “Allow me.”

“Thank you.” Lady Euphrosyne reached up for the saddle, clearly expecting him to cup his hands for her foot. Instead, he clasped her waist and lifted her onto the horse. Eyes wide, she stared at him. Now he had her attention. “That was”—she cleared her throat—“unexpected.”

For reasons he could not understand, Markville wanted more.

He didn’t know how strong her reaction was. Her breathing was steady, and the lace ruff hid any sign of her pulse. Only her eyes and words showed her surprise. Did she have a great deal of countenance, or was she cold? With a father like Somerset, Markville wouldn’t have been surprised at the latter, but there was something in the spark of her eyes that made him think she was anything but made of ice. Not to mention the energy he’d observed earlier.

Review:

Well, I am so pleased to review this book. I do not think that I have done reviews for collections before but I am happy to share this one with you all because it is truly great.

I was really attracted to it, because of the presence of Ella Quinn. If you follow my blog, then you know that I have been a huge fan or her Worthingtons Series.

Just to let you know, the 4 stories are very different and separate, I do not know why, but I thought it would be all surrounding a single event and the 4 authors would have a go at a set of characters, but that was not it at all.

To be honest, I did enjoy the variety of settings, characters, and style, and the four stories were all very entertaining all centered around a Christmas setting.

Because of the fact that these are 4 short stories, I am not going to dig into them and give you spoilers. However, I can safely tell you that all of the characters were very well written, and I loved how they all played out. They were each quite unique and I would have enjoyed very much to spend more time on each.

For this time of year, this is a fantastic read and I love the idea of 4 little books in one.

I am going to very highly recommend it, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
