George insists that his legitimate heir take care of his mistresses who comforted Andrew ever since his wife died. <P>Andrew plans to evict one of George¿s women from the family home. However, when he arrives he finds the last person he expects to see, Kathryn Markinson, who jilted him years ago. To his amazement he still wants her even after she introduces him to his young half-brother. Andrew orders Kathryn to become his mistress, but quickly decides he needs more from the woman he still loves. However, Kathryn has deep secrets that she knows she must share with the man she cherishes, but once he learns the truth he will discard her as unwanted baggage. <P> ONCE A MISTRESS is an engaging Regency romance filled with passion and love so much so that sub-genre fans will enjoy feasting on the tale. Though a bit thin, the story line engages the reader because the audience empathizes with the lead couple and the late George. Fans who relish an emotional character-driven plot will find Rebecca Hagan Lee¿s latest story enticingly fulfilling. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
