Pestered by a persistent stammer, a regency lord with a keen interest in orreries and boxing-but not in talking-must find a way to woo his new mistress without words.
Recently widowed and increasingly poor, Thea's been reduced to sharing her rented room with rodents and arguing over every morsel (the mice usually win). So when a friend suggests she consider a scandalous alliance, Thea cannot help but be reluctantly intrigued...though given her lackluster marriage, she doubts her ability to entice an experienced man.
Hampered by his traitorous mouth, Daniel takes to writing letters when he decides to woo his new mistress, little realizing how their fun, flirty exchanges will quickly become the light of his day. Or how wretched he'll feel when the charming Thea suggests they banter in person, possibly pen poetry-together. Blazing ballocks! Is she insane?
Thea's fascinating new protector has secrets-several. Hesitant to destroy her newfound circumstances, she stifles her longing to know everything about the powerfully built-and frustratingly quiet-Marquis. But then his naughty notes start to appear, full of humor and wit, and Thea realizes she's about to break the cardinal rule of mistressing-that of falling for her new protector. Egad.
Mistress in the Making is a fun, "sexy Jane Austen styled", emotionally satisfying tale told in three parts: Seductive Silence, Lusty Letters, and Daring Declarations. This print compilation contains all three.
