    Another very good book from Julianne Maclean!

    This was an easy read with lots of emotion, sex and adventure. To be honest, I didn't care for Vincent as he was presented in the book about the 1st brother, Devon (In my Wildest Fantasies). So... I was a little leery when I picked this one up to read. However, I enjoyed this book as much as the 1st one! Devon and his bride make appearances thru-out the book... I enjoyed their mentions very much as I didn't want their story to end. And... my opinion of Vincent changed as he evolved and some of the reasons for his former behavior were explained. The heroine is a sexy survivor... and it's not difficult to relate to her. There's another character in this book that caught my fancy: Iris!!! Is she real or is she a spirit? I've already got the 3rd book in this series on order as Blake, the 3rd brother, is missing... I must read his story... and hopefully, learn more about Iris too...

    Delightful Victorian Romance

    Julianne MacLean continues her delightful Pembroke Palace series for Avon with Book #2, THE MISTRESS DIARIES 'August 2008'. After a ball in 1873 England, Cassandra Montrose, Lady Colchester, decides to throw caution to the wind and experience one night of passion at a London hotel with the notorious rake, Lord Vincent Sinclair. Cassandra ¿ recently out in society again after a year in mourning for her late husband - decides Vincent is the perfect man for such an adventure before she goes on with her proper life, because he, too, wants only a single night of lovemaking. But during their torrid encounter, both feel an unexpected and intimate connection. Cassandra tells him of her loveless marriage and her inability to bear children. They even discuss a desire to see each other again. But by morning, Vincent is long gone. One year later, Lord Vincent returns home to Pembroke Palace with his future bride, Lady Letitia Markham, to plan their wedding. It is an arranged marriage, and since Letitia is a selfish and demanding beauty, Vincent is dreading their nuptials. When he arrives, his older brother, Devon, with whom he has a strained relationship, informs him that a baby has been left on the doorstep, and the mother of the child is upstairs. Vincent is shocked to see Cassandra again ¿ the fiery lover who claimed she was barren. Will he acknowledge his daughter and accept his responsibilities, or will he marry Letitia? Will Vincent reconcile with his brother Devon, and what about their father, who seems to be going mad and believes the palace is cursed? Here is a wonderfully unique Victorian romance with an entry from Cassandra¿s diary at the beginning of each chapter. Read the endearing, intriguing and passionate THE MISTRESS DIARIES to find out what Cassandra¿s and Vincent¿s fates will be.
