Despised and Desired by Bree Wolf is an outstanding historical romance. Ms. Wolf has delivered a well-written, smooth read. This is my first book by Bree Wolf and what a fabulous surprise. Ellie and Frederick's story is packed with drama, action, bits of humor and spice along with an amazing cast of characters. Kudos to Ms. Wolf for bringing these tremendous characters to life. I enjoyed reading Despised and Desired and look forward to reading more from Bree Wolf in the future. Despised and Desired: The Marquess' Passionate Wife is book 3 of the Love's Second Chance Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
