The Marquess Method by Kathleen Ayers Release Blitz

Hello fellow romance lovers! Today is release day for The Marquess Method by Kathleen Ayers. It is also Release Blitz day! Below you will find the beautiful cover, blurbs, my review, and buy links. This was an excellent five star review. All three books in the series have been five stars. So if you haven’t read the first two books…what are you waiting for? If you have been waiting for The Marquess Method, now is the time to get it and read!

Lady Theodosia Barrington is practically begging to be ruined.

That’s the assumption of the Marquess of Haven after spying Theodosia at a house party given by the Duke of Granby. After his father left him little else but a title and a crumbling estate, Haven is in desperate need of an heiress. Not only is Theodosia rich as Croesus and beautiful, but she’s also a Barrington. Her brother is Leo Murphy, owner of Elysium and the man Haven holds responsible for ruining his father.

Theodosia is the solution to all of Haven’s problems.

Lady Theodosia has long been infatuated with the Earl of Blythe. In an effort to prove her affection and perhaps induce him to offer for her, Theodosia paints a scandalous self-portrait of herself for Blythe as a birthday gift. The small token of affection is incredibly improper. Her behavior reckless.

She regrets gifting the miniature to Blythe immediately. Desperate to save her reputation before it can be destroyed and escape humiliation, Theodosia makes another rash decision. Retrieve the miniature from Blythe’s study.

Except the miniature is gone. And the only thing waiting for her is the Marquess of Haven.

And her own ruination.

My Review


Haven and Theodosia are one of those rare couples who can tear my heart out, then fill me with joy.  This book had everything; revenge, intrigue, and off-the-charts soul-searing passion.  The pull of these two was sensual and raw.  The characters were well defined and had tremendous personalities.  The plot was enthralling.  It was an intricate, lovingly written journey.

Ambrose, the Marquess of Haven, is destitute and desperate for a large dowry.  Lady Theodosia (Theo) Barrington is a be-speckled, free-spirited artist with an enormous fortune.  Theo is in love with another man.  Through a series of bad luck for Theo and providence for Haven, he sees his desires met, and Theo is sentenced to a fate that terrifies her.  

Yes, Haven is a fortune hunter, but behind that façade, he is much more.  His strong conscious surprised me; he held such depth.  I fell in love with Haven; he is my new book boyfriend!  Theo is adorable.  Her creativity, impulsiveness, and giving heart endeared her.  Although she views herself as an oddity, Haven’s strong feelings for Theo melted my heart!  The physical connection was off the charts.  Their attraction was primal and undeniable.

The Marquess Method is the third book in the Beautiful Barringtons series.  All three books are brilliantly and lovingly written with such care.  Kathleen weaves a romance in an organic way that resonates with the reader long after the book is put down.  Every sentence is written strategically, ensuring the audience is spellbound.  The plot is quick-witted, and I found myself laughing out loud; at other times, my heart ached for the couple.  This is a rich, vivid world with backdrops and a plot that steals the reader’s heart.  I cannot recommend this book enough!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through the author.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
