It was very hard for a woman without a man. Jobs were limited and often left the young woman vulnerable. Cecilia was clever as she derived her method of making a living without compromising her values. She let down her walls once and she wound up with an even bigger issue. For Oliver’s part, he had lived a tough life filled with prejudice for more than one reason. He rose above it but, understandably, had a hard time trusting. They made a great couple, but one had to take a chance. Which one will? Pick up A Pregnant Courtesan for the Rake and find out for yourself. You will be delighted as you get lost in the pages of this amazing book.
