Overview

The Perfect Mistress is the perfect follow-up to The Last Bachelor. This time the heroine is a courtesan's daughter who wants the unthinkable: to get married... The daughter of an exquisite London courtesan, beautiful and blunt Gabrielle La Coeur is determined to make a different life for herself -- staid, respectable... married. Pierce St. James is an openly libertine viscount, who intends to stay single and free of the hypocrisy of Victorian society. For Gabrielle, there is only one way out of the life her mother has planned for her -- she must become the virginal "mistress" of London's most notorious rake.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gabrielle LeCoeur, the illegitimate daughter of a duke and a celebrated courtesan, needs a nominal lover; the jaded, libertine earl of Sandbourne, Pierce St. James, needs help gathering evidence against the prime minister-so they strike a bargain that for all its pragmatic beginnings soon evolves into something entirely different. As in The Last Bachelor (Bantam, 1994), Krahn uses a light touch to address a serious social issue (i.e., the vulnerability of women in Victorian society), combining wit and whimsy with a high degree of sensuality in a gracefully written, well-plotted, and occasionally unpredictable story.
