Despised and Desired: The Marquess’ Passionate Wife is another wonderful heartfelt book by Bree Wolf. This is the third of the Love’s Second Chance Series and I have loved each of them.
They have had beautifully written characters that pulled at my heart in a special way. This writer brings the characters alive in the most beautiful way. Her characters are not flawless beauties of the first water. The characters in this story are beautiful in their deepest reaches inside.
Elsbeth Munford may very well have been a beauty except there was a terrible accident that scarred her and took away the man she was set to marry. She was aware that the accident had taken away the veil of beauty that most men were looking for in a bride. She accepted her fate without anger and remorse. She looked for joy in her life and she often found it even when others expected her to have only pain and regrets.
When Frederick a guilt ridden, wounded soldier returns home from the war. His life is turned upside down by the recent death of his father and then the unexpected title being dropped onto his head. He accepts his fate and tries to face it with courage. He as a second son was not expected to inherit, so he was not quite prepared and schooled for the title as his brother was. His mother complicates the matter by stating his new goal is to marry and produce an heir. He has no emotion about this at all, it is just another duty he must see to.
Frederick is so cut off from his own emotions that he will not allow anyone into his heart. He can not because he questions his own self worth. He is a man broken inside. When Elsbeth ( Ellie) and Frederick meet again, they have much work to do if they are going to have a life together.
Once again, I loved this book. I love the little light of hope that Ellie offers Rick. I love the women that have supporting roles in this story. They all have a wonderful gift to share with each other. It was a lovely read. Each time she releases a book it ends up as a favorite. Her characters are so free spirited and unusual.
The book releases June 22, 2016 and it is a historical romance that if you love regency romances, you will want to have on your bookshelf.

This story was short but it really touched me in such a special way. Isabella is a smart woman that has finally found a man that respects her brain as well as her other features. She is about to take the final step in that relationship when something unexpected happens. What a great book this was.
It had such heart. I will keep it as a go to my happy place read. I loved all of the characters. I can see this family coming back as a sequel. Maybe Bree has already considered that. Either way, this was one of the most perfect novellas that I have read.
I love the way Bree Wolf writes her characters. Each book I have read by her has so much heart and so much emotion that I fall in love each time. This time I fell in love a couple of times. This new series should be a wonderful collection of amazingly warm characters and I can’t wait for more.
Bonus Review: Forgotten and Remembered: The Duke’s Late Wife by Bree Wolf
This is the first book in the Love’s Second Chance series. If this is anything to go by, it is going to be good.
This book held so many emotions. The hero has been married before and lost his wife in a riding accident. Graham Astor who is the Duke of Kinsington was left to mourn with his daughter Georgiana.
After much prompting Graham decides to marry in order to have a mother for his child. Graham grieves the loss of his wife so deeply that he refuses to acknowledge his new wife with even the most basic conversation.
Rosabel does not expect to be loved after she finds out about his tragic loss, but she finds that she wants more than to just exists in this home with his dead wife’s memories.
This story has so many facets that I really was caught up with all the personalities. It is a sadly sweet story with love as the thread that holds it all together.
I truly loved this story. This is one of my most favorite books. I love to open it up and read it over again. Bree Wolf can really bring characters to life in the most beautiful way.
Additional Review: Cursed & Cherished: The Duke’s Willful Wife by Bree Wolf
This is the second book in the series Love’s Second Chance.
To begin with you learn that Edmond Dunsworth, the Duke of Cromwell has lost his family fortune. His steward has heard of a man with two daughters that have a sizable dowry. After a very unusual meeting he decides to offer for Anna. He sees something in Anna that makes him want unravel her mysterious behavior. I really enjoyed the dinner scene, it was pretty comical.
The marriage becomes a very rocky ground when Anna’s friend reminds her that men are devious. So Anna makes a plan to make the Duke sorry he chose her. It is a battle, a game that threatens to ruin any chance for happiness for either one of them. There are so many little sub plots that keep this story rolling at a quick pace.
Graham and Rosabel are in this book and that made me very happy to see how they are doing after a period of time. They are such wonderful characters from Forgotten and Remembered, the first book of the series.
If you have not read this series, you should. It is wonderfully written and full of strong independent characters. I can not wait for book three.
