Summary
A family tragedy has left well-bred Priscilla Wentworth in poverty and she has turned to a life of prostitution, so she is grateful when Sir Gerald Stapleton chooses her to be his mistress and tries not to expect anything more
Summary
Sir Gerald Stapleton has commited a most heinous crime by falling in love with his mistress. After rescuing Prissy from a house of ill-repute, Gerald sets her up in a love nest and discovers that this unaccountably well-bred mistress has secrets of her own. After spending the summer in the country together, Prissy and Gerald realize that they have fallen deeply in love and decide to separate. Bereft without Prissy and believing that she has married another, Gerald makes one last attempt to bring her happiness. Characters in this novel also appear in The Ideal Wife by Mary Balogh. Readers who enjoy this heartwarming Regency may also like Lord Wraybourne's Bethrothed by Jo Beverley, and novels by Loretta Lynda Chase and Emma Lange. (Description by: Becky Townsend) --
