Product Description

England 1814: He is a marquess with a woman to protect and an assassin to thwart. She is...not nice.

The Marquess of Dansbury is a strong, charismatic man living a charmed life as an agent for the crown. His past isn't without tragedy, but he is too amiable to allow misfortune to mar his positive outlook on life. Until now...when he finds himself tasked with protecting the one woman in the world he actively disdains, Lady Beatryce Beckett.

Lady Beatryce Beckett is mean. She ruins other women on purpose. She lies. She cheats. She even steals. And she takes particular pleasure in provoking a certain marquess. In short, she'll do anything to get what she wants: freedom from her abusive father. But she is strong (she's had to be), worthy (who'd have thought it), and in love... Wait, what?

It will take a special man to see the true woman beneath the surface...and a strong woman to allow him that glimpse. Is the Marquess of Dansbury up to the task?

5.0 out of 5 stars Can The Gentleman See Beyond The Bully And Love The Lady? 12 March 2016
By Karen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Bullies come in all forms. And they come in the form of small petite ladies. Lady Beatryce Beckett was a terrible bully. She was mean and spiteful and ruined anyone that got in her way. She would even be mean purely just to be mean. To say she was not liked would be an exaggeration. Who could like her?

The Marquess of Dansbury didn't like her, at all. At first, he thought she was attractive. But then, he was treated to her behavior. He finds her presence repulsive. This strong, charming, extremely handsome man who rarely found any lady distasteful found this one very objectionable. Dansbury is a man of optimism. He always sees the glass half full. However, being charged to protect this dreadful woman clouded his day. But having sworn an oath as an honorable spy for the British Government, he will see this assignment through, even if he would rather not.

Beatryce is thrilled. She was attracted to the Marquess of Dansbury while betrothed to the Duke. Who could not be? But she never gets as much as the time of day from this man. How could she possibly be so lucky as to have him protect her? Her only objective was her freedom. She wants to find a life, safe, away from the danger of the assassin. It can be a simple life. To leave her father, she was willing to marry the Duke, a man she knew she could barely tolerate. But that plan fizzled when her beautiful good cousin came into the picture. If only she could trust him. But she couldn’t trust anyone. Everyone in her life has failed her. She realized that she could only depend on herself. No one understood what she wanted in life – just a life, a simple little life. They never bothered to know her, find out who she was. Yes, she is mean, but that is because she is frightened and because people have hurt her. She needs to protect herself because she only has herself. Well, correction. For now she has the Marquess of Dansbury to protect her. She may survive this somehow.

Two extraordinarily good-looking people, mutual attraction and lack of trust can lead to quite an adventure. The Marquess of Danbury might have hated the thought of protecting her, but he could never deny the attraction for her. And Beatryce knew that there was an attraction towards him. Dansbury is one of the most efficient trackers, and therefore, most deft at not being tracked, in the country. Yet he finds the assassin seems to be almost in lock step with them. Could there be someone on the inside that is a trader to the Crown? How will the Marquess and Lady Beatryce endure each other’s company for what could be a very long time? Can they possibly not act on their attraction for one another, or will something more menacing loom in their future?

Amy Quinton’s second story in her Agents of Change series comes to life on page one and never slows down until you close the book. Beatryce and Dansbury find themselves in so many odd situations, with barely a step in front of the man that would possibly kill them both. The question is…how? And who is the assassin? Quinton fills her pages with humor, mystery and of course, lots of great romance. The reader, and I can speak from experience, just hangs on, turning the pages as fast as they can turn. I think she is a new writer with an ‘old writer’s soul.’ Quinton writes as if this is her fiftieth book instead of just her second. Her story is witty, her plot is fresh, and her characters spring to life. You honest-to-goodness like the mean, bully Beatryce! How does that happen? Read the book and find out.

This is definitely a five star book. Be sure and put this one in your cart!
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved 11 February 2016
By Becky Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved being surprised and What the Marquess Sees, definitely surprised me. Truly loved this book and Beatryce and Cliff.

I have not read the first book in Agents of Change but had no trouble reading this book as a standalone.

In the beginning I really wanted to hate Beatryce but as the book progresses my feelings about her changed to respect and admiration. Loved the Marquess from the start and only grew to love him more. The banter was entertaining to say the least.

I love the time period; the speech, dress and mannerisms. This historic romance hit all the marks for me. Amy Quinton is a skilled author and perfectly set the scene for me and told me a story of lies, deceit, abuse and yes love.

Quinton had quotes from numerous different people at the beginning of each chapter that we so fitting for each respective chapter.

Aunt Harriet is a gem and I couldn't help but love her and want her for my own Aunt.

The back and forth between Beatryce and Cliff is enough to keep me entertained even without all the mystery and danger going on as well.

"She looked angry, but only for an instant. Then, her look turned sultry and heavy-lidded; seduction emanating out of every pore. He was a little worried by that second look; it spelled trouble in absolute terms. She stepped closer. He took it back. He was a lot worried actually."

Even though neither want to admit nor give in to the attraction, they both feel it from the first moment. Marquess is angry with Lady Beatryce for her inexcusable behavior and wants nothing to do with her, other than to cut her with his mean tongue. Then he is strapped with protecting her and is exposed to a different side of Beatryce and her to a different side of the Marquess.

Great story and I look forward to reading the first in this series. Would recommend this book to any romance readers. Historic romance reader will love it.

I was gifted a copy for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparks Fly Between Mismatched Pair in Unexpected Regency Romp 12 January 2016
By Jessica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Lady Beatryce Beckett’s father is dead, but that doesn’t stop his sadistic associates from the Society of the Purification of England from pursuing her for what she knows. Her ex-fiance is away and safely married to her cousin, and she has no one left to turn to for help except for Cliff, the charismatic Marquess of Dansbury.

Cliff is as amiable as he is gorgeous, but it seems like the only person in England he truly dislikes is Lady Beatryce. Although he’s seriously attracted to her, he’s seen enough of her personality to know he doesn’t want anything to do with her. Beatryce is not nice. She is prickly, blunt, and frighteningly capable. She is exactly the kind of woman you’d want on your side in case of an emergency, but sweet-tempered, she is not. She delights in torturing Cliff, though we get the impression that her attempts at self-preservation will do her more harm in the long run. Cliff agrees to help her against his better judgment, and they flee London to get her out of danger.

Sparks fly from page one. The attraction is apparent and consistent, and we feel the frustration of the characters as they attempt to fight this. There is not a lot of innocent flirting here—they argue, taunt, and play each other, and even save each other’s lives once or twice. The love story is unexpected but does feel inevitable in the best possible way—although the characters can’t see it, we understand that this mismatched pair is perfect for one another.

I found the pacing and tone of this a little different from What the Duke Wants, but that’s perfectly reasonable given that they plots are very different. The hurried, sometimes fragmented feeling suits a story about a couple being chased. The plot builds on the first in the series, and I’m sure will carry us nicely into the next installment as the characters continue to fight the xenophobic Society for the Purification of England.

Each chapter starts with a well-chosen, period-appropriate quote, and this little detail really added to the story for me. I thought Beatryce was very likable, and I actually understood and liked her better than even Cliff, the totally swoon-worthy best friend from Book 1. He’s a great, well-rounded hero, and as Beatryce gets under his skin, we see him at his best and worst. The story was very exciting and totally unexpected. I think writing about such a superficially unlikable character was brave, but Amy Quinton definitely pulled it off, and in the end I liked Beatryce just as much as Grace from the first book. The chemistry is considerable, the characterization excellent, and the ending very satisfying. Fans of Amy Quinton are sure to enjoy What the Marquess Sees.
3.0 out of 5 stars The heroine and I didn't get along 24 August 2016
By Rreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have to admit not liking this book as much as the first in the series, and it's due to me. Not the author. The book is well written, the plot moves at swift pace, keeping the reader engaged. My problem was I did not like heroine. To me she wasn't redeeemable, and yes I understood what the author was doing with her, but still I did not care about her. That is why I gave this book a three star rating, and I hope you will give this book a try. You might feel differently about the poor heroine and feel ahead deserves her chance at a happily ever after.
5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this one just as much as I loved the ... 4 August 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this one just as much as I loved the last. I purchased both copies direct from the author. I typically don't care for Regency Romance, and while I'm not rushing out to find more Regency to read, I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series. I love the character development of both books, but this one is the best. The story of the girl we love to hate. Love, redemption, its got all.
