Description

A tormented marquis. A vivacious vixen. A deadly foe.  

Dragged to London for a season, Blythe Culpepper is dismayed to learn her guardian has enlisted the devilishly attractive Lord Leventhorpe - the one man she detests - to assist with her launch into polite society. Since their first encounter, hostile looks and cutting retorts abound whenever they meet. Still, she cannot deny the way her body reacts when he’s near. So, perhaps it’s no surprise that upon overhearing another woman scheming to entrap Tristan into marriage, Blythe must warn him. 

Tristan, the austere and controlled Marquis of Leventhorpe, usually avoids social gatherings. So why, against his better judgement, does he agree to aid his closest friend in presenting the Culpeppers to society? Might it be because one particular fascinating Culpepper stirs more than his interest? Blythe taxes him to his limits with her sharp wit and even sharper tongue. Yet, he cannot deny the beauty captivates him like no other. 

However, when a past enemy comes calling, using Blythe to settle old scores, Tristan must decide if restoring his family’s tarnished honor - something he’s worked toward for years - is more important than winning the heart of the woman he’s come to love.

Great book and awesome narration..

Another great romance from Collette Cameron. I just loved all the “B’s”: Blythe, Brooke, Brette, Blaire and Blaike. And I loved the other players: Tristan, Raven, Whitehouse, Maddox, Francine and Hawk. I despised Burlington, Rosemary Sanford and Phillips, who got exactly what he deserved, but it would have been better if he’d died.

What little was told about why Tristan could be so cold and unfeeling was pretty awful, it just showed what a truly horrible his father was. BUT as he drew closer to Blythe the more his walls came down. This really was a very good love story but also a story showing just how depraved men could be way back then and how the “ton” were never held accountable for their wicked deeds.

There was no sex but there was love and affection and passion. You don’t need sex when you have all that. At least, I don’t.

As to the narration: Again, Stevie Zimmerman was fantastic. Her male voices are wonderful and her emotions are fabulous. I love listening to her.

Schemes

Heath, Earl of Ravensdale, has brought his wife and the Misses Culpepper to London for the Season. Raven has asked some friends, including Hawksworth and Leventhorpe to help him introduce and keep an eye on the ladies. Unlike the twins and Brette, Blythe is not really excited about the whole venture. She wants to go home to the country. She now has to learn to successfully deal with the Ton, Society’s rules, snobby debutantes, questionable suitors, and the very handsome and grumpy Triston, Lord Leventhorpe. Truth is, Tristan doesn’t want to be here either. Old secrets and old enemies plague him.

This story is emotional and relatable. Learning to cope with bad experiences in the past and trying to adapt to new places and experiences is something a lot of us have in common with Tristan and Blythe. There are schemes afoot and some tense moments (here is where Blythe’s conundrum comes in). There are also some heartwarming surprises. I love the characters in this story and the series. Stevie Zimmerman does a great job with the voices in this one, bringing the characters to life and pulling the reader into the story. She gives Mr. Phillips a voice that leaves no doubt about his character (she does sleeze really well). And…speaking of Phillips, he ends up as a perfect example of consequences befitting the crime. Justice is served! This is a delightful story with great characters. I enjoyed it.

Delightful story in the series

While I've not read all of the books in this series yet, I enjoyed listening to this one and I'm curious enough to know the other sisters stories that I'll be buying their books. The story line has all sorts of twists and turns on the way to a happy ending for Tristan and Blythe. I enjoyed listening to their story.

Wonderful romance

The Marquis and The Vixen was originally entitled Blythe: Schemes Gone Amiss. This is book two in the Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper Collection by Collette Cameron. I have thoroughly enjoyed this audible book. Stevie Zimmerman does a fabulous job bringing Cameron’s characters to life. Blythe Culpepper is taken to London to have her season among the Ton. But her guardian’s close friend Lord Leventhorpe is to act as a chaperone, and Blythe detests him. This is a classic enemy to lovers trope that I adore. Lord Leventhorpe is a quiet man and greatly misunderstood. But he and Blythe don’t mix, and they seem to bring out the worst in each other. “Looming several inches above her, Lord Leventhorpe’s chest - a thick, wide wall of irile maleness - blocked her view. Tempted to shift away, she forced her feet to stay planted. He was the largest man she’d ever met, and as one of Heath’s closest friends, she must learn to tolerate Lord Leventhorpe’s intimidating presence. Surely sainthood and a seat at the Lord’s Table awaited her if she managed the Herculean task. The auburn-haired devil enjoyed provoking her, and like a nincompoop, she regularly succumbed to his goading.”
Cameron infuses a healthy dose of humor in her romances and this one is no exception. Always a fan of Ms. Cameron’s work.

Another entertaining story in this series

Another entertaining story in this series. I loved the family connection and how they look out for each other. Blythe and Tristan have an enemies to lovers relationship. However, the more they are in each others company, the more they become attracted to each other. There are some amusing scenes but also some menacing ones. Stevie Zimmerman uses different voices to bring the characters to life and has a voice that is easy to listen to.

A thin line between love and hate

I loved Blythe and Tristans story. When they were introduced in Blaikes story I knew they were meant for each other. Always sniping at each other. It we as comical when Blythe found out Tristan would be chaperoning her and her cousins at parties. The banter and growing feelings between them was wonderful. I received a complimentary copy and I am giving a review voluntarily.
