So she did the only thing she could – she ran. Yet now she was in no position to turn down a shocking proposition from the dangerously handsome Duke of Redmayne: that she become one man’s wife and another man’s mistress – his mistress.

Wealthy women will pay any price for his services, but he knows they would never pay the price for loving the man he truly is, nor would they wish to see that part of him.Victoria is a dimissed governess whose only crime was not responding to a former employer’s advances–a situation that was quite the norm in Victorian England.

The focus in this one is on a Victorian-era daughter, Rebecca Mandeville and her family.My TakeA typical gothic romance with cozy overtones that thwart Carr’s attempts to create tension and drama. I’m not sure if my frustration with this is due to how long ago this story was first released and the silly tropes used in this were typical of the writing styles when this was written or if this was an aberration.

Granted, she has reason for her unhappiness, but even as she grows, she doesn’t acknowledge how unfair she’s been, although she’s quite keen to disparage others for doing exactly what she’s doing. She is so incredibly clueless… And I…
