"With its excellent characterization, polished prose, and humor, Donnelly's latest Regency is a supremely satisfying, deftly plotted delight." – Booklist, American Library Association, John Charles

"...delightfully offbeat romp with an engaging set of young lovers...highly enjoyable" – Romantic Times Top Pick - 4½ Stars - Teresa Roebuck

"I highly recommend A PROPER MISTRESS...." — Five Roses - Escape to Romance, Marlene Breakfield

He needs to buy a woman...

Just for a few days, and only to get his brother back in their father's grace by getting himself into an even worse scrape. A low-born strumpet for a bride, seems the perfect plan, until his father refuses to act as he should. Theo soon finds he wants more than he paid for, and his sweet Molly Sweet is far more than he ever bargained for. His proper mistress is anything but...

She wants to be her own woman...

A cook in a bawdy house, and an orphan with a zest for live, Molly Sweet dreams of one day owning her own inn. She'll do almost anything to achieve that, including acting like a woman for sale. But it proves more difficult than expected when the lines between pretending love and the reality blur.

She can't bring herself to sell her body, but she cannot avoid giving away her heart. The only question now is will it land in accepting hands?
