Left widowed and penniless, Frederica Barry resolved to become what her late husband’s relatives had always proclaimed her to be- a very wicked woman. Taking London by storm, Freddie put her wits to work to support herself and her unusual entourage of servants.
But losses at the gaming tables soon brought the merry widow to the brink of disgrace and debtor’s prison. Clearly there was only one solution, to find herself a wealthy protector. Drawing up a list of the richest and most eligible men in the city, one name stood out above the rest- her distant cousin, the handsome rake, Max Warfield.
Max had witnessed Freddie’s outrageous antics with astonishment and reluctantly realized something had to be done about the young woman. But to accept her offer to become his mistress? Out of the question! His aim was to save her reputation, not destroy it. If only the beautiful Freddie did not make her offer so very tempting. . .
Mistress Mischief is another light-hearted romance from the award-winning author of Brighton Road and The Sugar Rose.

I always enjoy Susan Carroll's work. These are the type of books I like to curl up with and sip a hot cup of tea while I take a moment to actually relax. I love the way she writes and that each book whisks you away to another time and place. If you love regency romance, I highly recommend this book and others by the author.
