When your reputation is ruined, why not enjoy it?
For Regency wallflower, Miss Verity Barnes, nothing is more difficult than obtaining a voucher to Almack's Assembly Rooms…except salvaging her reputation after committing a grievous faux pas within ten minutes of stepping through the doors. But being cast out of fashionable society inspires Verity to seek out a different way of life—a way she believes will bring her happiness, comfort and security—becoming the mistress of a powerful man.
Thomas Manfred, Marquess of Landsbury, isn't looking for a biddable woman to warm his bed. His fortunes lie on the brink of ruin, so he needs a wealthy wife, and Lady Charlotte Grey, darling of the ton, seems to be his only answer. But he cannot forget the adorable, amusing, and naïve young beauty who humiliated herself at Almack's. And when Verity shows up on his doorstep, demanding he take her as his mistress as amends for the part he played in her ruin, he simply cannot resist the temptation.
But Lady Charlotte isn't willing to give up her position at Thomas's side or share his attentions with anyone. Her acid tongue could ruin Verity's reputation even more thoroughly than it has already been destroyed…unless fate intervenes.
A light-hearted, fun, SUPER steamy, Regency romp—a quick read, not to be taken too seriously.
