Mark of Distinction
The Price of Privilege #2
By Jessica Dotta
Julia Elliston has escaped. At least for the moment. But she has been caught in a web of deceit from which she never emerge. In Born of Persuasion Julia had seemingly escaped from the designs of her guardian, until she found herself forced into a marriage she didn't want to a Mr. Chance Macy. To Julia's surprise and horror she was the unwitting pawn in a game of chess between Mr. Macy and Lord Pierson, the father she never knew of. With the help of Edward Auburn Julia escaped Mr. Macy and made her way to Maplecroft, her father's home.
But now she is at the mercy of her father's schemes to destroy Mr. Macy and to secure political future of Lord Issac Dalry. Julia is left with little choice in what her life has become as Lord Pierson manipulates the lives of those around him.
Mark of Distinction is an intriguing book as one tries to figure out what exactly who is doing what and what their ultimate goal is. One feels sorry for Julia, though some of her problems are of her own making. I think Issac is the one person empathize the most with. He too is at the beck-and-call of Lord Pierson. But he truly cares about Julia and her feelings.
This is a book that I don't think you could read without first reading the previous book. You need to read Born of Persuasion to fully grasp the nuances of the characters and their relationships. I can't wait to read book 3 to find out what happens. Does Julia have a happy ending? Or will she bow to her father's demands?

I received this book from Tyndale Publishers and am not being compensated for my review.
Julie Elliston finds herself in high society. Who can she trust? Who can she trust her heart to? Will those in charge of her life make the right decisions for her? This are all questions Julia asks herself when a secret plan to trick others falls into her lap. She is one step away from destroying the illusion that has been painted as her life.
Lord Pierson, Juliaâ€™s father, is going to help her escape Chance Macy. The key is to figure out how to be part of society, as her father wishes. But Chance Macy wonâ€™t give up and tries to get Julia back. As the story unfolds, Julia finds out what she really wants.
This is book 2 in a 3 book series. I have not read the 1st book, but I would recommend it as Jessica Dotta is a wonderful author.

My only regret in reading this book is that I didn't read "Born of Persuasion", the first book in the series first. It took me a couple of chapters to figure out who was who, and how the relationships intertwined, but once I did I couldn't put the book down. Out of all the books I've read in the last few months, there are only 3 that I could say I truly loved, not just liked, and this is one of them. (Born of Persuasion is also one of the 3)
Jessica Dotta is an amazing author with a talent for creating characters that come alive and a story line that twists and turns and begs you to go with out sleep to finish the book. Upon finishing this book I then read the prior book, which I had downloaded on my Kindle. And let me tell you, the first book is just as good as the second. This story has the drama of P&P combined with the mystery and suspense of Jane Eyre. One of the unusual things about this story is the villain. Normally, a villain is so black and white it's easy to dislike him, but not so in this series. I had to keep reminding myself, "he is the bad guy".
Julia and Isaac play center stage in this story and their relationship is complicated to say the least. Isaac's care and concern for Julia won me over from the very beginning. There are to many ins and outs to write about, but I enjoyed every one of them.
I highly recommend this book (as well as the first) and can't wait for the final installment next year!

Chock full of twists and turns and so many chances of high society scandal, this story is a brooding example of Londonâ€™s fickleness. Julia is thrown into a society she has never known as the rightful heir of Lord Pierson. The story draws you deep into her rollercoaster life as she struggles to find her way. Many dangers lurk and many characters fill this story. In the end Julia must decide whether to trust God or trust in herself for her future.

This is interesting, and more complete than Book 1, but reading the first book before this would make things clearer. The surprises in the plot were creative, and the writing was reasonably well done. However, for someone who thinks she contains her emotions well, the main character certainly panicked often, she was weak, and she was flaky. I realize strong women were rare then, but she seemed to get herself deeper into trouble at every turn, by not speaking or changing her mind. She daydreamed a lot, which did nothing to further the story line. I noticed mannerisms jumping from one character to another inexplicably; the two men were unrelated. I liked the creative use of antiquated vocabulary. If you like a clean, slow-moving romance, this is nice.
