Overview

Scandal Is Only The Beginning. . .

Charlotte Fallon let her guarded virtue fall once--and she's paid dearly for it ever since. She swore she'd never succumb to men's desires again. But even a village spinster's life miles from temptation can't save her from a sister with no shame whatsoever. Or a heart that longs for more, whatever the cost. . .

Sir Michael Bayard found more than he expected in his bed when he finally joined his new mistress. He'd fantasized about her dewy skin and luscious curves, assured her understanding that what passed between them was mere dalliance. But he didn't expect the innocence and heat of her response in his arms. Nor her surprisingly sharp tongue once she was out of them. . .

A few days of abandon cannot undo the hard-learned lessons of a lifetime. Nor can an honest passion burn away the restraints of society's judgments. Unless, of course, one believes in nonsense like true love. . .

    For fans of steamy Regency gender wars

    In 1820 Sir Michael Bayard attends the funeral of his grandmother. After paying his respects, Michael travels to London to be with his mistress Deborah. However, his woman has run away with Arthur Bannister taking with her a necklace and money that does not belong to her.

    Deborah's sister Charlotte is at Michael's abode waiting for his return to tell him his mistress has eloped. Irate as he lent Deborah the purloined necklace, he orders the sibling to stay as his substitute mistress. She will be freed when his necklace is returned to him. He further explains to Charlie that their relationship will be a short lived tryst. Thus both are shocked by the intensity of the passion, but his ex wife Anne wants him back and Deborah hovers between Michael and Charlie.

    Over the top of the original Westminster clock tower (pre Big Ben), fans of steamy Regency gender wars will relish the sexual combat between Sir Michael and fallen Charlie. The story line is fast-paced from the moment spoiled Deborah informs Charlie she is leaving to marry Arthur and never slows down As Michael makes Charlie his Mistress by Mistake for now.

    Use spolier alert!

    RomancingRakes, why not lead with "spoiler alert" before spilling a story? Reviews are not intended to retell the tale before anyone has had a chance to read it.

    Still sexy the second time around...

    Well, the second read through of this book was more satisfying than the first. There were things I remembered and things I missed. Of course I knew who the crazy was but even on the second read through, I still cringed at the way she acted.

    Charlotte "Charlie" Fallon has rushed to London, afraid that her baby sister has taken ill. Wrong. Her sister Deborah, the most sought after courtesan in all of London, has decided to run away with the third son of an earl, and intends to have Charlotte take her place as new mistress to one, Sir Michael Xavier Bayard. Of course Charlotte, ever the proper lady, decides to straighten everything out with Bay the morning after Deborah runs off.

    Cue in the sinfully delicious Sir Michel Xavier Bayard. He arrives in the dead of night, after spending a month away being with his grandmother before she passes and making funeral arrangements. Bay can no longer wait to take Deborah so, upon his arrival at the Jane Street house, he crawls into bed with her. She's not what he expected. Well, duh! It's Charlotte, not Deb. But he doesn't know that.

    Charlotte wakes up to Bay trying to make love to her and screams. Well, you would too if a stranger was sucking on your nipples and you're somewhat aroused by it. Charlotte tries to explain to Bay what happened and how she came to be in his bed. Turns out, Deborah stole a necklace that belonged to Bay's deceased grandmother. Until the necklace is returned, Charlotte must take Deborah's place as Bay's mistress. Eep!

    And the story gets crazy. Charlotte is physically attracted to Bay. I mean, who wouldn't be? He's got magic fingers, lips, [insert body part here-- yes, even THAT body part]. They carry on a very steamy relationship while trying to deny their attraction. Pfft. We know how well that will turn out.

    Bay has a man looking for Deborah, he's got a fantastic sexual relationship with Charlotte, then his crazy ex-wife blows into town and all hell breaks loose. She's a total looney. Apparently she was married to some other man who they thought dead, then he comes back so that makes her marriage to Bay null. Got that so far? Bay is still semi-head over heels in love with her which turns him into a drinking fool. Sheesh! Men! Now the ex-wife wants to get back together and have a baby with him. Then Charlotte and Bay fight, she turns into a watering pot, she destroys property (okay, those cherub figurines are pretty ugly and quite creepy), and in the middle of it all, Bay gets kidnapped.

    I fell in love with both Charlotte and Bay the second time around. There were scenes I'd forgotten about and scenes forever imprinted in my memory.I must say that Ms. Robinson writes like her hero, Bay. It is pure poetry, meant to seduce, titillate, excite and ensnare the reader from the first chapter until the last. I'd forgotten how hot Maggie Robinson can be, just ask my Kindle. The creaking was audible as I gripped it tightly, my heart racing, my toes curling as I sighed from the sexual chemistry between Bay and Charlotte. It's almost like a soap opera, complete with mistaken identity, kidnapping, crazy ex-wife, expert lover hero, self conscious heroine, and a floozy of a sister who ends up being content with someone you didn't expect. Oh, and a few plot twists. Ms. Robinson, I'll be putting the rest of the series on The List

    feisty, fiery...and funny

    No none tells a story quite like Maggie Robinson (aka Margaret Rowe). Her involving, exquisitely erotic romances are filled with perfectly imperfect people who behave badly. That's all right--after you spend some time with her characters, you wouldn't want them to behave any other way! "Mistress by Mistake" is the first book in the "Courtesan Court" series, and it introduces us to the ladies of Jane Street. These ladies, known as "The Janes" are not merely beautiful women. They are the mistresses and courtesans of the some of the most wealthy and powerful men of elite society. Each woman is unique, not only in her loveliness, but in the circumstances which brought her to Courtesan Court. In "Mistress by Mistake", Charlotte Fallon is sent by her sister to a house on Jane Street on a mission to break her sister's newly formed "arrangement" (before it actually begins) with the sinfully seductive Sir Michael Xavier Bayard. While waiting for Bay's arrival, Charlotte fortifies herself with some liquid courage and soon falls into a deep sleep filled with wicked, wanton dreams. With the light of day comes the realization that her dream lover is none other than Bay himself, who is also quite disconcerted to find that Charlotte is not the woman he was expecting to find in his bed. When he discovers that a valuable necklace is missing, he believes that the sisters worked together to set him up and play him for a fool. He decides to punish Charlotte by keeping her as a prisoner. His sensual torment becomes addictive for them both, and the seemingly prim and proper Charlotte stuns Bay with the depth of her hidden passions. Further complicating matters is the arrival of Bay's malicious, mentally disturbed former wife, with whom he was obsessed for many years. Charlotte and Bay have a bodaciously bawdy, boisterously bickering relationship in which they are more than each other's equal. The women of Jane Street have a common bond which unites them in friendship, and we learn just enough of each of their stories to make us look forward to reading the future entries in this entertainingly naughty series!

    A rousing romp!

    I loved this book because it was just different enough from the usual romance to make it a fun and lively read!
    Be warned,however - this is NOT the book you want to give to your young niece to introduce her into the romance genre!
    Still, a great read and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a light and raunchy read!
