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.

This is the first novel I have read by this author. I was very pleased. I will be reading more. Very hot sex scenes along with a great story line.

Gabrielle and Pierce and very believable characters, and their story is unusual yet entertaining as they try not to fall in love while pretending to lovers. A novel you wont want to put down, even after you reach the end. Another great story by Betina Krahn.
