The long-anticipated and utterly extraordinary tale of the Mad Marquess that proves love truly does last forever

The Marquess of Marsden always follows the rules. Expected from birth to adhere to decades of tradition, he plans to marry a proper young woman from a good family. But when a beautiful, and completely unsuitable, woman snags his heart, he begins to realize that to get what you want, sometimes you have to break the rules.

Linnie Connor dreams of the independence of running her very own bakery. And while she may be allowed to be a marquess’ childhood companion, the baker's daughter never ends up with the handsome nobleman. Determined to achieve at least one of her dreams, Linnie makes plans to leave her sleepy village for London, intent on purging him from her heart. And yet, when an invitation to the Marsden annual ball arrives, she can't refuse her one chance to waltz in his arms.

It will be a night that stirs the flames of forbidden desires and changes their lives forever.

And so touching. But to appreciate this story, please read the four Hellions of Havisham books!

I agree that it started out well...but it did turn strange. It could have ended after they were married and I would have been satisfied. Kinda depressing after that.

It started out as a short and sweet love story than spiraled fast forward into death and ghosts! It's like the author was in a hurry at the end and added a bunch of random stuff. Wouldn't recommend this one.

A beautiful short story. It was a heart warming short story. I can honestly say this Put Tears in my eyes. If your reading the series then this book is worth the money. It just quick side story.

I truly was interested in the story if the Mad Marquis and his lost love. I also knew that their story would be heartbreaking and difficult to read. This story did deliver upon my expectations and even left me wishing for a change, for them to have just a bit more time. However, the only thing I think was lacking was depth to the story itself. I almost needed more of their love and their story on the page. That would havr given it the push that it needed.

Be sure to read the Viscount and the Vixen first. It will give you the foundation for WHEN THE MARQUESS FALLS. The entire series was very good reading, but this was the finishing moment in the St. John's series. A love for all time.

Really loved this one. Definitely puts all the pieces together regarding the mad lord and makes it all so sweet and so terribly sad. Was a fitting end to the series. Too bad cousin robbie didn't get his just desserts though.

There is something compelling about childhood frtiendship that endures. This novella provides the backstory to the guardian of the heroes from several other books. Lorraine Heath knows how to take a emotional and ethical challenge and work it out through a story. Quick and thus not as multilayered, but worth the read.
