Book Review: The Mistress' House, by Leigh Michaels

I just had a delightful romp in Regency-era England... National bestselling author, Leigh Michaels' book The Mistress' House.

The book was funny, sexy and entertaining. I couldn't put it down!  I loved how the stores of Anne and Thorne, Fliss and Richard, and finally Georgie and Julian were intertwined around this one house. And while highly sensually charged, the stories were so romantic.  The men superb lovers and not only in the physical form. They truly had a way about their words that had my heart melting.  Additionally, all three heroines were strong, feisty, independent, and knew almost exactly what they wanted.  I say almost, because at first they had one intention only to see it melded into another much more satisfying end.

A definite recommended read if you're looking for a sensual bit of historical romance. 

Book Info:

Three beautifully intertwined love stories…


The rules are made to be broken…

When the handsome, rakish Earl of Hawthorne buys the charming house across the back garden from his town home, he never expects the lovely lady he installs there to ensnare him completely…

Again…

After Lady Anne Keighley marries the earl, it seems a shame to leave the house empty, so she offers it to her childhood friend Felicity Mercer, who discovers that the earl’s gorgeous cousin is precisely the man she’s been waiting for…

and again…

Finally, feisty Georgiana Baxter moves into the house to escape an arranged marriage, and encounters the earl’s friend Lord Julian Silsby late one night in the back garden. The handsome soldier is more than willing to give her the lessons she asks for…

There is plenty of gossip, scandal, and torrid speculations surrounding the “mistress’ house”, but behind closed doors, passions blaze…
