Product Description

Product Description


Crispin Hawke, a brilliant sculptor, is revered by the ton. His works are celebrated in every fashionable parlor. And tales of his fiery bed skills whispered behind every fashionable fan.


Grace Makepeace is determined to wed a titled lord, but her Bostonian bluntness leaves much to be desired among the well-heeled London crowd. So to gain their acceptance, she commissions the incomparable Crispin Hawke—and asks for love lessons on the side.


Crispin agrees to school Grace in flirting and the delights of the flesh. But when she catches the eye of a marquess, he realizes maybe he’s done his job a little too well. And suddenly he knows Grace is the one masterpiece he cannot bear to be parted from.

HASH(0xb421f2b4) out of 5 stars A Fun Read April 13 2013
By ToniWI - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Stroke of genius is a great historical romance that has a touch of humor and enough "ooh la la" to keep a secret smile on your face. I loved the characters, they each had there own personality to make them a real player in the book. I loved the build up of the book and was engaged to the end. Unfortunately, the end was a little too abrupt for my taste, but that didn't detract from the story as a whole. Stroke of genius is definitely worth your time.

HASH(0xb408b594) out of 5 stars A delightfully unique romance April 2 2013

Overall "Stroke of Genius" is an engaging and at times amusing read. Crispin is a delightful break from the typical British gentry protagonist. What American reader can resist a self made man? And an artist at that! The Makepeace's are a lovely little family. It's a nice change of pace to read about a female character who's NOT so dreadfully all alone in the world. The companionship between Mr. Makepeace and Crispin gave hope to me as the reader and was a fresh change of pace in a novel. Grace and her father are trying to please her mother but Grace begins to realize she has her own opinions and desires. Grace is believably innocent which enhances the plot as it ticks along. The sparks between Grace and Crispin are enticing, enhanced by the mystery of the doppelganger. Lastly, the editing and Marlowe's writing style are better than most other books I've read. The writing is so perfect that I'm very rarely distracted by a misspelling or out of place word. Anyone who likes romance will love this book!

HASH(0xb409972c) out of 5 stars Beautiful Historical Romance...Loved It! May 6 2013
By JMAuthor - Published on

I really enjoy reading books set in London during the ton. I find their ways to very prim and proper and yet, there is always so much lust and secret loving going on. I cannot imagine how much really went on during that time, but it is amazing the stories that come about.

I love the relationship between Grace and Crispin. There are sparks and much like other books, Crispin is the rake. This time, though, there is a unique angle to it... he isn't noble one bit. He is an artist. There's also a slim element of fantasy in that each have dreams that come true. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but I just loved that tiny aspect.

I loved that Grace was real and didn't take too well to being treated as an object. I also loved that they each saw the other for their true selves. And of course, I love when romance blossoms no matter how hard the H/H try not to allow it.

Beautiful historical romance. I really enjoyed it!

HASH(0xb4099810) out of 5 stars Steamy...I like it!! May 8 2013

I was surprised by how much I liked this story. The whole genius artist meets American in London didn't really interest me. But I thought I would try it out and Im glad I did! This author really knows how to weave a scene and put you under a spell. I liked all the seductiveness in it. Everything was nice and steamy but very tastefully done.

It did feel like the ending was a little abrupt and I would have liked an epilogue.

But still a great read...check it out!!

This story started off a little weird for me. I did not think I was going to like the characters. However, I kept reading and it did not take long to hook me. She comes from America to marry a title. The pushy mother with the rich father. They are really not accepted until the hero who is not the usual white knight steps in. He is a very famous artist, sought after by every member of the ton, so therefore, has admittance to the various events. He decides to groom the heroine to marry a title. However, things take a turn. There are a few characters that you love to hate and they make your skin crawl but they are taken care of. I loved this story. I could not put the book down once I started it. I am writing this review at 1 in the morning. I highly recommend this book if you like the London scene. It is a good love story.
