Reviews of A Marchioness Below Stairs

“A well-researched story that weaves the issues of slavery and feminism into the plot. The start of Indian takeaways in England and the Frost Fair of 1814 are historical trivia included in the story that make this book an interesting reading experience.” - 4 stars, RTBookReviews.com

“Although this was predominantly a romance, I felt it was more than that. The story spoke about a strong woman who stood up for her truth and freedom, and fought for justice and human rights. I thoroughly enjoyed the rich history in this book and how the heroine was a woman beyond her time. The book was infused with some tension and suspense too.” – Kathy Bosman

“In the best Regency romance style, Alissa Baxter has created a wonderful story. You are thrust into the life of the title character literally from page one.” – Goodreads reviewer

“If you love Regency romances this book has it all - gorgeous refined women, a sprinkling of rakes and cads, and handsome heroes. The author has introduced different threads of interest through commenting on the politics of the time (in particular the anti-slavery bill), and through delving with detail into mouthwatering below-the-stairs food preparation. With an interesting array of characters and a good handful of subplots, this is definitely a book to read if you wish to take yourself off to a historical time where men thought they ruled but women secretly knew better.” – Cherie Mitchell

“A widow determined not to marry again - a man determined to change her mind. Add in a snowed-in house party, stolen papers, and a scoundrel, and you have a very entertaining story. Enjoyed the tale.” - Goodreads reviewer
