THE MISTRESS (Ruthless Regency Dukes 2) is the second book in USA Today and Amazon International #1 Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, NEW Regency Romance series.

Six Dukes, bound together by their friendship and loyalty to The Crown. Then one of them is killed at the Battle of Waterloo, splintering the friendship of the five left behind, as they blame themselves and each other for their friend’s death. Until they learn he didn’t die in battle at all, he was murdered. The search for the killer begins!

Alaric Montrose, the Duke of Melborne, has his quarry in his sights, but very quickly realises that the best way to learn if this is the man responsible for the death of Alaric’s friend, is to seduce the man’s mistress.

Except that mistress is immune to all Alaric’s attempts at seduction.

Obviously stronger measures are needed if he is to succeed in his current mission, and there are any number of ways in which he might achieve that goal.

Blackmail the information out of her.

Kidnap her and hold her as his captive until she tells him what she knows of the situation.

Step up his efforts at seducing her.

Or, and this really was Alaric’s preferred solution, he could do all three of those things by blackmailing, kidnapping, and seducing her.

Whatever it takes, Alaric will know the truth, and Grace Sunderland will be the one to provide that information.
