    1. 2.5 stars (:This is a cute bookI think its just to pass time thoughYou know, to read when you're bored or somethingHas nothing impressive, to be honest, just a nice quick read :D

    2. Catherine Raybourne, Marchioness of Foster, tried to help a friend two weeks after her wedding to Jamie and in the process, got caught in what looked to be a comprising position and it sent Jamie away for five long years. Jamie refused to look a fool just weeks after his marriage and thought it best to leave than bear the gossip but has decided to return home and try again with Cat, to have an heir. But after Jamie left after their horrible fight and with no word from him during his five year ab [...]

    3. This was originally published in the anthology Three Weddings and a Murder, which also included novellas by Courtney Milan and Tessa Dare, and I have to say, I found it fairly average. I’ve been fortunate enough to have read some very engaging novellas and short stories recently (Miranda Neville’s and Caroline Linden’s stories in At the Duke's Wedding , Tessa Dare’s The Scandalous, Dissolute, No-Good Mr. Wright, Courtney Milan’s The Governess Affair, for example) all of which have mana [...]

    4. I'm just done with this. I've wrote 2 reviews already and I lost them both, so this time I'm going to keep things sweet and short.1. The hero, Jamie, was a fucking idiot!2. I hated the hero.3. The heroine, Catherine, still fell for his shit, even though he abandoned her and basically treated her like whore.4. I hated the hero.5. The final nail in the coffin was knowing that Catherine was pregnant, that she lost her baby and that she had to be through all that pain and loneliness, without the ass [...]

    5. Arc providedby NetGalleyCatherine Rybourne the Marchoinese of Forester , has been alone for five years banished to the country estate the very same length of time that she has not seen her husband Jamie. Two weeks after marrying he left and has not come back and when the she asks the solicitor the response is his lordship is well.Imagine Cat's suprise to return from the village and find him sitting in the parlor with his feet up , ishe home because he wishes for Reconcile, has he come home becau [...]

    6. What a lovely way to spend a couple of hours on this gloomy Saturday.This novella was free today and I snapped it up, cuddled in with a nice cup of coffee and enjoyed following along as Cat found her way back to her husband Jamie. He had left five years previously. Angry and embarrassed that she had made him look a cuckold. Not that she was guilty of anything but being young and stupid.They both have grown over the years and there was no talk of him (or her) being unfaithful in their time apart. [...]

    7. Very slight. And, um, I may not ever been entirely clear on what the heroine did, but I'm pretty sure it didn't deserve the hero disappearing for FIVE YEARS WITHOUT A WORD.

    8. this review was originally published at DearAuthor in an anthology reviewIt is now available as a single title release.This novella by Ms. LaValle is a treat. Its heroine, Catherine Raybourne, the Marchioness of Foster, was abandoned by her husband two weeks after their wedding. She was caught in a compromising position with another man and James, the Marquess, left her in anger. She’s heard not a word from him for the past five years and is beyond shocked to find him, one quiet Wednesday afte [...]

    9. TOO SHORTCatherine Raybourne the Marchioness of Foster has been alone for the past five years. After just a few short weeks of being married, she had created a situation which had severely embarrassed her husband Jamie. He had left her at his country estate, while he went off to travel the world. In all that time he had never contacted Catherine.Now he has returned, a male relative his heir has died. Jamie has come home to his wife. He needs an heir.First read for me buy this author, and it's ob [...]

    10. Note: I saw this on netgalley and grabbed it, not realizing I'd read it in the anthology called Three Weddings and a Murder. Each story from that anthology is now available as a standalone. I can't recommend enough each story.My original review of Three Weddings and a Murder can be found here4.5 starsLeigh LaValle has a great story about love, betrayal and forgiveness. My favorite part was that the H/h are a married couple, and this story takes place 5 years after the wedding. Right after they g [...]

    11. I have a soft spot for books that feature a married couple who have been estranged, and for some reason that is particularly true for historical romances. This short novella really fit the bill for me. I would have enjoyed seeing a few aspects fleshed out a little more, but I realize that just isn't possible in such a short story. Catherine and James were likeable characters, and I enjoyed learning about their past and watching them come to terms with one another.Catherine Raybourne, Marchioness [...]

    12. Oh, my God! It's sooooooo cute!!A short story, quickly read, you're totally enchanted by the characters.It is all a big misunderstanding and two young proud who could not talk properly at the time of confusion and therefore ended up 5 long years apart from each other.At a party Cat, married Jamie a few days ago, was caught in a compromising position with another man, a famous libertine. Jamie did not accept the fact, although Cat have explained to him what really happened, he decides to leave. N [...]

    13. I liked the first book in the series (The Runaway Countess). In it, Cat tells Mazie that the reason her husband left her is because she had an affair. Imagine my surprise in this book to find out that not only (view spoiler)[did she not have an affair (hide spoiler)], but (view spoiler)[he knew perfectly when when he left that she hadn't had any affair, and he was just angry about the fact that she helped out a friend (hide spoiler)]!Anyway, hero is basically an unrepentant jerk and heroine's sp [...]

    14. This book was almost great except for the hero's complete lack of shame from his FIVE year absence after one embarrassing night. Additionally, how is one accidental mistake equivalent to disappearing for five years, because they seem to think it's the same level of mistake. Furthermore, his non-regretful behavior only really seemed to change afterdeck found out about her pregnancy/miscarriage which he didn't know about. The miscarriage was also used as an cheap plot device which wouldn't be nece [...]

    15. I loved the emotional truth of this story and appreciated the slow rebuilding of trust between the couple. I still don't understand the point of the (view spoiler)[fire (hide spoiler)] since we already knew how much they cared for each other. It felt unnecessary. It's a minor quibble, however. I'm going to check out the rest of the series (I read this in theSeven Wicked Nights anthology) because I enjoyed the writing so much.

    16. MisbehavingCute story. I enjoyed reading Cat 's story. She is a strong, caring person who still loves her husband after he left her, because of a misunderstanding. On to the next book in this series.

    17. Eh. OkIt wasn’t a terrible read, but it was so short that there wasn’t really much room for developement. If you want a very short easy read, this is ok.

    18. I suppose it is alright for how short it is. But the hero and heroine's problems seem solved before the book even starts. Not much conflict and a lot of filler.

    20. I read Leigh LeValle's novella "The Misbehaving Marquess" back when it was released as part of the Three Weddings and a Murder anthology. It follows The Runaway Countess in her Naughty In Nottinghamshire series. In Countess, we met Catherine "Cat" Raybourne, Marchioness of Forster, sister of the hero, Trent Carthwick, Earl of Radford. We find out that she and her husband are estranged and have not seen each other in years. Marquess is the story of how Cat and her husband James reunite.I was imme [...]

    21. Quick, satisfying novella about love and the power of forgiveness.Full review I have been in the mood for shorter reads, so when I saw The Misbehaving Marquess on Netgalley, I put in a request for it. I have been reading so many contemporary romances, too, and thought it would be a nice change to try a historical. Though I thought the conflict between the protagonists was a little weak, this turned out to be a satisfying read about a husband and wife who allowed pride to get in the way of their [...]

    22. After catching his wife, Cat, in what is perceived as a scandalous position a mere 2 weeks after they took their marriage vows, Jamie flees his estater 5 years. 5 years? Really?In the 5 years that her husband has been gone, with nary a word to her about where he is or how he is, Cat has learned to live on her own. She's been making decisions and changes to the way the estate is run so it's more inline with what she wants. Cat is none to impressed with Jamie's unannounced arrival back their home. [...]

    23. 2.5 stars for this one, honestly some books make me wish would reform its scoring system. This happens to be one of them.The Misbehaving Marquess is the story of Catherine and Jaime, who were sweethearts since the time they were of age. Following their courtship they get married and feel they have before them their happily ever after. Yet not a month into their wedding, a scandal rips them apart. Catherine is found in a compromising position with a notorious rake and chaos ensues when people pe [...]

    24. I immediately became an enthusiastic fan of Leigh LaValle after I read her debut novel The Runaway Countess. As most of her readers I was clamouring to know when we got to read the story of Cat, sister of The Runaway Countess' hero, so when I discovered that the novella penned by Leigh LaValle featured in this anthology was Cat's story I can tell you I was excited! But have no fear, The Misbehaving Marquess can very well be read as a stand-alone story.Cat has been living a quite unfulfilling and [...]

    25. Catherine Meredith Carthwick Raybourne, the Marchioness of Forster has been waiting for her husband, Jamie's return ever since he left 5 years ago after a scandal involving her occurred. Now that he has returned, without having the courtesy to have her informed, she can't help being angry at him for not even telling her he was home, but also for not even sending a letter to her during his five year absence. After questioning him about why he has returned home and finding out the only reason he h [...]

    26. You can find this review and more at Forever Book Lover.I loved the character, Cat, in Leigh LaValle's The Runaway Countess. I knew she had a story to tell and I am so glad Leigh gave her a chance to tell it.I knew she was married but there was little mentioned about why he was no longer in the picture In The Misbehaving Marquess I learned that he left shortly after they were married. Cat hasn't seen or heard from her husband, Jamie, in 5 years As she is getting on with her life, Jamie suddenly [...]

    27. Please note- This novella was previously released in the anthology 'Three Weddings and a Murder'.Having awaited the return of her husband for half a decade, Catherine Raybourne, the Marchioness of Foster, has no intention of reconciling with her misbehaving marquess. But when he insists he needs an heir-immediately-she must confront her own lingering desires. Can she protect her heart while attempting to win his once again?What a lovely way to spend a couple of hours.This novella was free the da [...]

    28. Personally, I think Jamie got off too easy. I understand why he was hurt and angry - but he says that he believed that she hadn't had an affair - but he still leaves for 5 years. 5 years without a word and it seemed like he only came back because his heir died. Not because he missed Cat or because he forgave her but because he needed an heir. In his defense Cat did something really stupid and did not think of how her actions would affect Jamie. But to pout about it for 5 years! What she did was [...]
