Lady Evie Chesterfield is a darling of the ton who refuses to become engaged. She's been desperately in love with her brother's friend, Richard Maitland, Marquess of Westfall, since forever. But the dark, dangerous marquess only sees her as a friend and refuses to marry any woman. When circumstances change and Evie has no choice but to take a husband, she decides to convince London's most notorious gentleman to marry her by seducing the scoundrel.

Richard Maitland decided long ago that he wanted nothing to do with love. So when the gorgeous, off-limits Evie asks him for lessons in seduction, Richard knows he's playing with fire. Despite Richard's determination to protect her from his dastardly reputation, he is tested at every turn by his need for the infuriating, but enticing, Lady Evie. Before too long he is faced with making an impossible choice…

Lady Evie Gladstone had been friends with Marquess of Westfall, Richard since she was sixteen and he twenty-four. Richard was Evie's brother friend first but the two bonded and had a special connection over the years ...more

By Books Just 4 Me March 31, 2020

I was curious about this couple since they’ve both made small appearances in the first two books of the series. Neither had particular good traits. Evie made a selfish decision and sacrificed a friend to save herself from an unwanted marriage and Richard was cold and blatantly rude to everyone he ca ...more

He was the darkness to her purity.
I know that quote sounds like a cliché, but before you scoff at me, I have to tell you . . . cliché or not, How to Marry a Marquess was absolutely WONDERFUL!!

We know quite a bit about Richard, Lord Westfall and Lady Evelyn from the first two b ...more

I am so thrilled for Evie and Westfall’s book to be out in the world. I got dozens upon dozens of emails/FB messages from readers asking about their story. I was excited and petrified in equal measure at the anticipation I felt from readers. I hope you love/enjoy Evie and Westfall’s journey to Happy ...more

I could not put this book down.Literally!This is my first one of these series so unlike everyone else I didn't have a chance to hate the heroes for their appearances on the previous books.Maybe that was a good thing after all :)
I liked the fact that it was not a slow burn but still kept y ...more

By Celestine August 14, 2017

Instead of arranging a "meet cute" between her two romantic leads, author Stacy Reid has instigated a "meet puke." Yes, you read that right. Young Lady Evelyn, who hasn't even had her debut yet, is positively ill over the attentions of an older duke who finds her quite delectable. **Cue the reader's ...more

Evie, 16, and Richard, 24, meet as she’s throwing up in the garden during a house party. He boldly advises her how to withstand the unwanted pursuit of gentlemen her mother pushes her way. It is really quite inventive and I assure you you’ve not read this before in a romance. At least I haven’t. The ...more

By Mahima July 27, 2020

This is the first series that I read back to back. Most of the time I land some other author before going for the next part in the series.
This series has all the emotions packed in it❤️
At times I would desperately fell for the heroes and the other times I wanted to slap them hard across their face. ...more

By Michelle July 26, 2017

I have been waiting for Evie and Westfall's story since I read the first book last year. I knew something was going to happen between them but I was wondering when and how they would be wedded by scandal. If you have read the first book, you would know that Evie has made several sacrifices and possi ...more

4.5 stars - My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

Since reading the first Wedded by Scandal book, Accidentally Compromising the Duke, I have been on tenterhooks for Evie and Westfall’s story. Stacy Reid did not disappoint. How to Marry a Marquess has it all: bright dialogue, meltingly sensu ...more

Tenía muchas ganas de este libro porque era Friends to Lovers además que ya quería leer la historia del Marqués y Evie.

4,5 'friends to lovers' stars

I've been intrigued by Westfall and Evie since the first book where we had a chance to see sparks flying between them. But Westfall was too stubborn to actually acknowledge his feelings for her and Evie was to shy to act upon her feelings for him.

They met at a ball when ...more

This is the story of Lady Evelyn aka Evie and Richard Maitland, Marquess of Westfall.

Evie and Richard have shared a unique friendship over the years, they met when she was 16 and he was 24. When they met Richard was already cynical having given his heart to a woman who turned ...more

How to Marry a Marquess is the third book in the Wedded by Scandal series by Stacy Reid. It can easily be read as a stand alone, although as characters from the first two books are mentioned in this book it's nice to get a continuation of their stories too.

By Lisa August 16, 2017

This is a wonderful story of steadfast love, devotion, and faith in one man and the man that is slow on the uptake. We have Lady Evelyn “Evie” Gladstone, daughter of an earl and the darling of the ton and Lord Richard George Maitland, the spare to the heir of the Duke of Salop. They meet when she is ...more

I got this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Reid wrote a unique and very different story, something I haven’t read before – ever. It’s a critical background and I really wonder if this ever happened for real because the ton was quite merciless.

By Topastro June 16, 2020

Evie and Richard have always loved one another but although they are in the same society they live in vastly different worlds. Evie is kind but naïve to life outside the ton while Richard despite being a marquess knows of the darker side of life and resents the façade of the beau monde. With a few s ...more

This is the third book in Reid's "Wedded By Scandal" series which focuses on a variety of couples caught in some sort of scandalous behavior. I really enjoyed the second book in this series, and this one was also entertaining.

The Story-

Wow, that was unique, different & frustrating but I liked it a lot. Been awhile since I got engrossed in a good historical romance.

I loved both the characters. But both were frustrating. At the 60% mark I was tearing my hair out. But it's good story, well written, full of 6 years of unrequited love ...more

'How to Marry A Marquess' by Stacy Reid is Book Three in The "Wedded by Scandal" series. This is the story of Evie Chesterfield and Richard Maitland. I have read (and Loved!) the other books in this series but feel this is easily a standalone book.
Evie first met Richard when she was almost 16 years ...more

By Nancy July 21, 2017

This is another great book by Stacy Reid. How to Marry a Marquess is the third installment of the Wedded by Scandal series. This is a stand-alone novel so you do not have to have read the first two. For those who have read Accidentally Compromising the Duke, Westfall and Evie finally get their HEA. ...more
