First of all - those characters! How can't you love someone like George and Lilith, Penelope and, oh, you just have to love Beatrice either, those four are so lovable and so authentic and original , it's really great!
We won't talk about Lady Marylewick or those ... cousins...of Lilith's though, I hated them almost from the start and believe me - it didn't get better, nope. Not at all.
And then - the story. I laughed so hard about the "Colette and the Sultan"-parts, especially in the end when things get heated and the fans....well, best read that for yourself, it is so funny and I just loved it! Apart from that the story was well constructed and well written and kept me glued to my reader till the end.
This is definitely a story that I'll read again and even though it was the first book by Susanna Ives that I've read it won't be the last!
Okay warning there might be some spoilers, so sorry, but it has to be in order to explain some of what I liked about the story.
First off, George Maryle, Marquess of Marylewick is definitely stuff. He heaps on the responsibility of his family, and he worries about the things that will tarnish his reputation. He has one problem which happens to be Lilith Dahlgren. She's the free spirit ward he's in charge of making sure she doesn't get into too much trouble. However, Lilith is always getting into trouble. These two couldn't be more opposite. Yet there banter between one another could cause a fire. I love how Lilith continues to change George, because he needs that spark of life. Majority of the story you see these two going back and forward. At the same time Lilith can't stand the Maryle family, and it's completely understandable after the way they treated her when she was younger. She truly tried to fit in, but no one gave her chance. I felt so bad for Lilith. Basically, she found a creative outlet in the form of her story.
I liked how Susanna intertwined Lilith's story into the book it made the story more interesting. Granted it was already entertaining to beginning with, but you see Lilith's feelings through the story. She did try to explain herself to George, but he had the hardest time hearing. Actually, George isn't unlikable, but you get to understand him a little better through the story. Overall, I enjoyed the story. Yes, I was a little worry at the beginning of the story, but found myself wanting to know more of what was going on. If you are looking something like How to Impress a Marquess you may give it a try.
