The Duke of Beloin mistakes a Viscount's daughter for a fallen woman, an error he can hardly afford while trying to divine which of his enemies is blackmailing him.

Sabrina "Sabre" Bittlesworth has practiced the sword since she was eight years old, so when a mysterious visitor in her brother's house offers to make her his mistress she challenges him to a duel, even after she finds out he's a duke.

Quincy Telford, Duke of Beloin, has hated Viscount Bittlesworth as long as he can remember. Now the man's daughter is constantly in his path. Can he escape her temptation and avoid peril in the increasingly dangerous game of cat and mouse he is playing with his blackmailer?

About the Author

Doodlist, scribbler, thinker, planner, and all around fun chick.

What her fans are saying:
"...a wit so sharp it should have a warning label..." ~ Dusk Pennington

Sue London began writing short stories about horses and teen sleuths when she was seven years old. After that she traveled to distant worlds, fought with swords and sorcerers, and played with a few undead things. As you might have expected, this means she went into accountancy. Well, maybe that was an odd plot twist, but that's the difference between real life and fiction - fiction has to make sense.

In her twenties she developed a deep affection for romance, especially enjoying the work of Nora Roberts, Mary Balogh and, most recently, Courtney Milan, Rose Gordon, Lauren Royal, Danelle Harmon, and Diane Farr. You can thank those authors for leading a sci-fi tomboy into writing historical romances set in the Regency period.

The first book was very good. The Duke was involved in politics and seemed confident in the first book. In second book I found him to be someone who ignored his duties almost lazy. Sabre was wonderful, I enjoyed her imnencly. Though one has to wonder why her family let her stay with the Duke. Her fellow sister married bc of her being ruined. This book was longer than the original and somewhat anti climax. Still not a bad read, just not great read. Simple read.

Athena’s Ordeal by Sue London Haberdashers Series Book Two Lady Sabrina Bittlesworth or better known as Sabre to her Haberdasher sisters, always gets what she wants. And she wants a certain duke. After defending her honor after he questions it, she is so impressed with his fighting skills, she decides she will have way or another. Quincy Telford, Duke of Beloin, is nothing like his friend Gideon. Rather than womanizing he’d prefer to have peace and quiet. To be alone. Until he sees her, Sabrina. One big problem...he will never allow the daughter of a man he hates to hold the title of being his duchess. Mistress yes, duchess no. Never. Wait, don’t they say ‘Never say never’? I just love the characters in these books. Their personalities are well defined. Gideon and Jack (from book one, Trials of Artemis) have their point of view in this story too. One of the things I enjoy about series is seeing what is going on with the characters from the previous books. The third story is George’s in Fates of Apate. **Sexual content and language
