Mark of Distinction Book Review

About the Book
 London is said to be the glittering jewel of society, a world unto itself—but to Julia Elliston it is a city of shadows. Her life is swiftly dissolving into scandal. And in Victorian society, even a whisper of scandal—substantiated or not—can be the death of a young woman’s reputation.

When Julia discovers that Lord Roy Pierson, her guardian and one of most influential men in England, is the father she has never met, she begrudgingly accepts his protection. But Chance Macy’s power is far-reaching as well.

Thrust into society as the Emerald Heiress, Julia is the toast of London, a celebrated curiosity. But in reality she’s trapped between the clutches of two powerful men. Aided only by a gentleman whose intentions she prays she can trust, Julia must finally take control of her own fate—but outwitting one’s foe rarely goes according to plan. (Goodreads)

 My Review
I loved the first book in this series. It was in my top ten last year and I have been anxiously awaiting this second book. The first book is most definitely better but this book was good to tie the stories together. In the middle I thought it got a bit wordy and drawn out but I enjoyed the characters and the setting just like the first. Julia grows and comes so far from the first book, I wanted to jump into the book at times. Like in the first, this book has a ton of detail which I do like with Jessica's writing. While this book had a finality in the end I am still excited about the next book!
 You must read the first book before starting this, nothing will make any sense if you do not start with book one. 

I rate this book four stars but I still highly recommend this series. 

This book releases May 1, 2014.
