    1. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)

      I enjoyed this. The humor was good and I liked how both characters are set on their paths, but their paths keep intersecting. The Spinster House cat, Poppy is quite the matchmaker. Haywood was so protective of Anne, and I liked that. I wish he didn't think it was okay to go to prostitutes, although I understand his options were limited because of the vow he made to his mother. Looking forward to Lord Alex and Jane's story.Reviewed for Affaire de Coeur Magazine. affairedecoeur.

      I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.This is book two in the Spinster House series by Sally MacKenzie. I have read the previous book but I feel you would be okay with making this a standalone bookbut I will say Ms. Mackenzie writing is so good that I would hate for you to miss out on any of her books. There is a Spinster House that was set up by the previous owner to only have the house used for one Spinster until she married or died then the hou [...]

      Our hero has so many sexist thoughts. (Women needing to be subservient and other bullshit like that.) Oh, and did I mention that he has conversation with his dick? Yup! You heard me right. Plural. As in at least 10. It was uncomfortable. He always telling it to shut up and behave. 😂 And the pacing was not good at all. It would be really slow and then bam! Something would happen that if practically miss. There were several scenes that were not very long and then when the characters were thinki [...]

      Sally Mackenzie is a great writer she knows how too draw her readers in and she sure did with this book, what with a dynamic story line and lots of adventure and true love what more can you want or need in a book.

      "Mistress of the House"fangswandsandfairydust/201The Spinster House series offers a situation-romantic-comedy in Regency clothing, and with the specter of tragedy floating around the castle. I found the language a little modern; especially the use of the word, “Hey” as a way of calling to someone or as an exclamation. But, according to the first online site that came up when I googled it; it has its origins in Middle English. It’s all in the spirit of silly romantic fun. It reminds me of a [...]

      The clever premise of the Spinster House series continues with a story where the wishes of one woman and a man are constantly at odds, and growing sexual tension between them only adds more conflict when they are together. Sally MacKenzie is known for creating stories filled with lots of hilarity, and humorous scenes are scattered all throughout the latest Spinster House installment. HOW TO MANAGE A MARQUESS is entertaining with delightful characters and engaging moments.For many years, it has b [...]

      1.75 StarsI find this such a let down, little to like on both main characters. Out of the series so far, this book is my least like of all. The wee stepbrothers saved the story for me. The timeline in this book happened concurrently with What to Do with a Duke, and it still evolved around the Duke of Hart's curse, Marquess of Haywood - the male character - being the cousin of the cursed Duke. As such the book lost quite some details; like how Nate and Anne first met, whether that sparked attract [...]

      Good lord the patience Nate has when it comes to Anne should earn him an award especially when she's tipsy, “be that as it may, you will sit on the stone.” Hell, he didn’t want to hurt her, but he was not about to have her plant her feminine hindquarters on his hard and getting harder . . . lap." The situations Anne and Nate find themselves in, “you can’t be very naked. It’s something you either are or you aren’t.” He was very aroused was what he was. Surely she noticed his ***k [...]

      I have been waiting for this book since I finished the first in the series. The stories are entwined but do stand on their own. Anne needs to get out of her father's home as he is hoping to remarry. She is waiting along with two friends to see who gets to move into Spinster House. Anne has no intention of ever allowing a man to tell her how she should live her life, and spinsterhood is the best solution. Her plans get derailed as she spends time with Lord Haywood. Nate is focused on protecting h [...]

      ***ARC Provided by the Publisher and NetGalley******Re-do of Review that never posted***Corsets and cursesoddly, this covers it. :)This book was fun, pure and simple. The characters, the things that happen to them, the dialog. It was all fun. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. As others have said, you get a good idea of the book from the synopsis, and it stays true to that.What you get from this book is exactly what you want.a fun, feel good, romance. Anne and Nate are fund by now, the theme should [...]

    16. Janet Robel

      I received this free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I liked the whole concept of the Spinster House spinster and found that to be intriguing. Nate and Anne's story is typical in that they are already acquaintances and the romance has yet to build until the story progresses. This is a nice afternoon read, but with so many romances out there, readers may decide to pass this up in favor of a more substantial book.

    17. María José

      Mi segundo libro de Sally y sin duda destaco su sentido del humor y los pensamientos más hilarantes imaginables,un libro en que los pensamientos de los personajes son todo menos aburridos; están llenos de contradicciones, charlas con sí mismos y esos perfectos momentos en que deciden dejar de usar la cabeza y razonarlo todo. Bien por los protagonistas! y hay un par de niños adorables dignos de mención.

    18. Arshia

      This story was entertaining but it jumped from scene to scene with no rhyme or reason. Also the hero was a bit of a dandy, he was so weird. I liked Anne because she at least had some spunk.

    19. Susan

      Good continuation of the series. This book, about the second of the women vying for the Spinster House, takes place at the same time as the first book (What to Do with a Duke). Anne really wants to be the one chosen to live in Spinster House, as her father is about to remarry - to a woman younger than Anne, with two young sons. The thought of living with them horrifies her. Unfortunately, her friend Cat is the one chosen, leaving Anne stuck at home. That is unless she can encourage Cat to marry [...]

      You talkin' to me?When I picked up How to Manage a Marquess by Sally MacKenzie I had my fingers crossed. I had issues with the first book in her new Spinster House series, What to do With a Duke. But because I found Ms. MacKenzie's earlier writings to be fun, I hadn't given up on her. So I was hoping that this book would be the light at the end of the tunnel I was looking for. Sigh. Spoilers litter this review.Concurrently. I'm not sure how I feel about books which have story lines running concu [...]

      As many people knowI love, Love, LOVE historical romances! And I absolutely adore finding new authors in this specific genre. I read this book first, but, I will have to go back and read the series from the beginning; though I do not feel that I need to. This book could work as a standalone because there was a lot of details about the previous book in this one. I read many others' review on this to see if it was to my interest and it seemed like it was, so I gave it a chance and do not regret it [...]

      Another Love's Bridge novel!Belle and William had an affair when they were teenagers. She got pregnant and was sent away, he joined the army unknowingly and married a woman who took him for a fool. When he finds her again in a lending library, while hiding from the London gossip, he immediately is drawn to her again. This novella is a fun return to MacKenzie's novels. They always manage to put a smile on my face. And though this novella felt a little rushed (the ending could have been longer, or [...]

    25. Lynne Tull

      Be prepared for a light and frivolous read. I am going to think of this series as an 'escape' from reality. This story overlaps the first story. In fact, we probably won't get the final 'happily ever after' until the end of the third story. It is a arch-typical series: three girls, all friends meet three guys, all friends. There's a little mystery and of course a happily ever after. It is a fast read and even has a 'cat' with its 'merrow' guides the characters along. Recommend.

    26. Tara Choate

      While the writing was decent and the characters sexy, the plot didn't draw me in enough to finish the book. Also, it's the second in a series. It may stand alone, but there were a lot of references I didn't get.

      I started reading this book around 11 pm on a regular night where I had to go to work the next day. I forced myself to stop reading at 4 am thinking I was 63% of the way done. I was actually more like 93% done because the prequel was included in the ebook but since it was electronic, I hadn't skipped ahead to look at the ending. This is all to say that it totally sucked me in and I would have happily read it in one sitting.How to Manage a Marquess is the second book in the series. While you cert [...]
