A determined wallflower…

Lady Daphne Rosamond never thought of herself as missing out. She believes that love will find her when the time is right. That is until she visits a fortune teller. Now she is determined to create her own future.

An unapologetic rogue….

Marcus Wentworth, Earl of Clarendon, is out for life's sinful pleasures. He's made a name for himself charming the skirts off of every willing woman he encounters, and offers no apologies. What's more, he has no plans for settling down.

A twist of fate….

Determined not to grow old alone, Daphne takes fate into her own hands. Marcus made her a promise years ago, and she's ready for him to make good on it. He would give Daphne her first kiss once she was of an appropriate age. Not one to turn down a beautiful woman, he delivers on the promise. One passionate moment that neither will soon forget, but how could either of them have guessed where one stolen moment would lead?

I just finished listening to this delightful story on audible and I can only heave a hugh sigh! The narrator took me through the pages picturing the scenes as they unfolded with her wonderful voice. Lady Daphne was a true wallflower. Three seasons and no potential matches, although she craved love and a family, but feared that will never be. But fate steps in and when she is at a house party, she finds Marcus, her old friend from childhood that she had not seen in a long time. Oh, but he had indeed grown into a handsome man and she could not keep her heart from pounding! Could he possibly be her future? I loved Daphne and Marcus and my heart smiled as the narrator said The End! Do not miss this romantic story of hope and love when least expected!! Lori Dykes

The fortuneteller told Lady Daphne Rosamond that she must have a kiss within the month if she is to have a future that includes love and marriage. When she finds that her old friend Marcus Wentworth, now the Earl of Clarendon, is attending the same house party, she decides to convince him to make good on a long ago promise. When they were younger, he promised that should she not be kissed by the end of her first season. Can Daphne ask Marcus? Will Marcus agree to a kiss? What will happen if he does? Daphne and Marcus are absolutely loveable and have great chemistry. The secondary characters are likeable and funny, especially Natalie. Cute, quick, and Christmassy, Stealing a Rogue’s Kiss is a charming holiday story. I highly recommend it.

Reviewed by Peggy Jo Wipf for Readers' Favorite Oh, the good intentions of friends and family! Stealing a Rogue’s Kiss by Amanda Mariel puts Lady Daphne Rosamond in an intriguing predicament because of a fortune told by a gypsy. Daphne must be kissed within the fortnight if she ever wishes to marry. Shy, plump, and with no prospects, Daphne doesn’t see a kiss coming. Natalie and Pippa intend to take her under their wing and teach her how to flirt and lure a man. Disaster and embarrassment seem the likely outcome of a stolen kiss, until she reminds her childhood friend of a pact they made many years ago. Marcus Wentworth, Earl of Clarendon, knew now, just as he did years ago, that he wasn’t good enough for Daphne. He wasn’t about to kiss her, nor let anyone else.   Stealing a Rogue’s Kiss starts out with the reader entertained by the thought of what these girls will come up with to get a man to kiss Daphne. Amanda Mariel packs this short novel with humor and mystery, making the reader rush to find out how the dilemma will unfold. Marcus's determination not to kiss Daphne and to keep every other man away from her makes for a witty problem. She is on a deadline and refuses to detour from her future. The unexpected emotions surprise both Daphne and Marcus, leaving these two in unfamiliar territory. I loved the author’s writing style and found the characters likeable. You may find secondary characters in other novellas by this author finding love of their own. Ending this novella was satisfying and I am expecting more from this author.
