To save her reputation she had to pose as a rogue's mistress!
Lovely Christabel, the Marchioness of Haversham, is desperate to regain some letters that could destroy her—so desperate that she pretends to be the mistress of notorious gaming club owner Gavin Byrne, in order to accompany him to a scandalous house party hosted by the man who now has her letters. But when she agreed to let Byrne coach her on how a true mistress behaves, she never suspected how very… persuasive his wicked lessons would be.
Gavin is secretly determined to find the letters before Christabel, to use them for revenge against the noble sire who abandoned him to grow up in London’s worst slums. He’s also delighted at how very successful his “mistress lessons” are: it won’t be long before the luscious young widow is in his bed. But when the fiery Christabel catches Gavin in his own seductive net, he realizes that if the letters are found, he’ll face a difficult choice: to wreak the vengeance he’s planned all his life, or to protect the woman he may have foolishly fallen in love with.
