Unladylike Rules of Attraction

Avon. (Marleigh Sisters, Bk. 2). May 2024. 352p. ISBN 9780063296527. pap. $18.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Anya Marleigh is content with her comfortable life at court. As the out-of-wedlock daughter of an earl and his Indian mistress, she could hardly hope for more. When a mysterious bequest from a dowager countess leaves her in line to inherit a fortune, however, she dares to dream of independence. There’s just one catch: to inherit, she must marry in the few short weeks before her 25th birthday; otherwise, the riches go to Lord Damian Ashton, the countess’s ne’er-do-well nephew. Though Damian wants nothing to do with the money, he knows that his and Anya’s lives are at risk so long as his scheming relatives seek to claim the fortune for themselves. Murray presents the second installment in her “Marleigh Sisters” Regency series (following Unladylike Lessons in Love). Full of suspense and scandal, this plot-driven novel is exciting and engrossing. A great cast of supporting characters rounds out the compelling tale.
VERDICT This book will appeal to readers seeking a richly detailed historical romance with a side of intrigue and adventure. Recommended for fans of Sarah MacLean, Maya Rodale, and Eva Leigh.
