ARC REVIEW How to Impress a Marquess by Susanna Ives
Lilith hates the side of her family her mother married into. She has felt unloved and unwanted since she was a teen, she has been ridiculed and made to feel like a lesser of a person just because her birth father was not of society breeding. George is the head of the family and was left in charge of Lilith's inheritance and every month she must beg for her money. Lilith has shown to be irresponsible and flighty when it comes to her money, and her cousins from her father's side have used her for it and after living together for several years they have abandoned her with a past due rent of seven months even though she has given her rent money to them every month. Homeless and betrayed only George is there to help her and she hates him for it. An old school acquaintance of George's has fallen for Lilith and manipulated George into bringing her to George's annual house party. The house party is where all the excitement happens including a spiteful and hateful mother, a forgotten half sister, and an attic of forgotten secrets and locked away artist talent.
Overall this was a fun and enjoyable read, I really liked it. And every time George said "My God, Lilith!" he did so in Frasier Crane's voice.
