The Marriage Trap (The Trap Trilogy). I have enjoyed all of Elizabeth Thornton's novels, this was a real page turner, love it when you have to guess who the villain is, & you are still guessing almost to the end of the book.

The Marriage Trap (The Trap Trilogy). Could not put the book down once I started it, the story was well executed & fast paced, enjoyed the interaction between Hero & Heroine, well worth the.

About The Marriage Trap. Nationally bestselling author Elizabeth Thornton returns with a wickedly tempting new tale of scandal, intrigue, and daring proposals. A: The second book in the trilogy, The Bachelor Trap, has Brand Hamilton for its hero. Brand is the base-born son of a duke, a self-made man now, but with a big chip on his shoulder. In his time, he has met with a lot of prejudice. I think I found the perfect match for him in prim and proper earl’s daughter, Lady Marion Dane.

Jack had been right about the break-in, at least in one respect. Nothing had been taken. This morning, they'd gone to her house so that she could check things over. She had meticulously gone through.

I've looked at some of this author's books before but the price and reviews put me off. I missed out for sure. I'm not sure what persuaded me to give this one a chance but I'm so glad I did. This is a historical romance with suspense and both elements are so good. Ms Thornton weaves such a good tale that has you wondering and guessing from the start. The H is in Paris at the same time as the h. She remembers him really well because he was sent to her late father, a vicar, for 6 months to help him prepare for university exams. The H has totally forgotten the h and when he sees her as a dowdy chaperone, nothing registers. The h sneaks out one night to go gambling because her brother has run up debts and it's the only way she can pay them off. She can count cards and is careful about how she goes about winning. She also dresses up as "Aurora" and is both beautiful and alluring. She ends up in a situation with the H and he propositions her after a passionate kiss. She comes to her senses and tries to get back to her hotel unnoticed. Unfortunately the mother of the girl she is chaperoning is looking for her when she gets back because her cousin's wife's diamonds have been stolen. The only way she can prove that she didn't steal them is to get the H to say she was with him. The H is an Earl and used to women trying to trap him into marriage and he tells her that she'll not trap him this way. Obviously the h had no intention of trapping him and makes it very clear before she goes back to England after being fired. It's a complex story with lots of things going on. I couldn't put it down.

+++Minor spoiler+++
I usually get very bored with sex scenes and particularly when an innocent is being deflowered (insert rolling eye emojis here). However this has to be one of the best passages for me. The h had me howling with laughter. Here's a taste: "And if I had known," she said,"that you had to be cruel to be kind, I would have held you off till Judgement Day."

I've already downloaded the next in the series because this book was worth every penny I paid for it.

The best book I've read in a long while. Well, okay re-read I have the paperback copy too. You'll love all the characters as much as I did. It's a historical romantic mystery like most of her books, something i absolutely love.

I may be a devout fan of Elizabeth Thornton, but as a reviewer you can rely upon me to give you an honest assessment of what I've read. Well, I'm here to say Thornton's newest book should definitely be on your `buy list' as she welcomes you into her newest Regency-era trilogy with her initial offering focusing on Lord Jack Rigg and his two best friends, Ash, heir to a Marquis; and Brand, born on the wrong side of the blanket and now a renowned newspaper man.

Jack had led a carefree life until he inherited an Earldom upon his brother's death, and became the target of all the matchmaking mamas of England. Along with his friend Ash, they fled London for Paris where Jack met the unremarkable lady's companion Ellie Hill. Jack never recognized her as the childhood friend that had at one time both tormented and idolized him so many years ago. Never would he have looked twice at the dowdy companion, but hours later near the infamous Palais Royale, could he believe that the mysterious Madame Aurora, cardsharp virtuoso, he had rescued in a café brawl was the same woman. In the space of hours, their paths had crossed several times where, Jack's impressions went from total disinterest, enchantment, and then a furious rage as he felt he'd been set up!

The furthest thing from Ellie Brans-Hill's mind was attempting to trap anyone into marriage, especially her former childhood friend, Jack Riggs. A vicar's daughter, all thoughts of marriage fled her mind years ago and her one goal was to honor a promise to her mother to take care of her brother Robbie. What little money earned as a lady's companion though would not be sufficient to bail Robbie out of his latest peccadillo, thus she had donned the guise of the mysterious Lady Aurora and ventured out to win the money needed to pay off loan sharks threatening her beloved brother. Being rescued by Jack Riggs, would prove to be a godsend when later she would be accused of theft and needed an alibi - but the alibi would cost dearly as it caught them both in a marriage trap!

*** In my opinion, nobody does it better in creating fascinating characters, intriguing mystery, and splendid romance as effectively as Thornton. This initial installment in a new trilogy proves without a doubt that she is still a force to be reckoned with in this genre. Her characters are all fresh and well defined and the two leads, Jack and Ellie, played extremely well off of one another. Ellie's set-down to Jack after refusing his insulting offer of marriage was a positively brilliant piece of dialog, that I found totally delightful - I think I actually clapped! This newest trilogy is off to a great start and the insights given of the next two heroes Brand and Ash, will surely whet your appetite for more from this very accomplished author. You won't go wrong in adding this author to your `auto-buy' lists and keeper shelves. - Marilyn, for [...] --
