“I did so enjoy reading all three books about the growing love between Thea and Daniel. They were funny and well written and I can’t wait to read more of this author’s books. Highly recommended reads and definitely keepers!” Five-Star UK Reviewer

Seductive Silence (Book 1) – Pestered by a persistent stammer, a regency lord with a keen interest in orreries and boxing—but not in talking—must find a way to woo his new mistress without words. Recently widowed and increasingly poor, Thea’s been reduced to sharing her rented room with rodents and arguing over every morsel (the mice usually win). So when a friend suggests Thea consider a scandalous alliance, she cannot help but be intrigued…

Lusty Letters (Book 2) – Thea’s fascinating new protector has secrets—several. Hesitant to destroy her newfound circumstances, she stifles her longing to know everything about the powerfully built—and frustratingly quiet—Marquis. But then his naughty notes start to appear, full of humor and wit, and Thea realizes she’s about to break the cardinal rule of mistressing—that of falling for her new protector. Egad. Lord Tremayne takes to writing letters to woo his new mistress, little realizing how their fun, flirty exchanges will quickly become the light of his day. Or how wretched he’ll feel when the charming Thea suggests they banter in person, possibly pen poetry—together. Blazing ballocks! Is she insane?

Daring Declarations (Book 3) – An evening at the opera could prove Lord Tremayne’s undoing when he and his lovely new paramour cross paths with his sister and brother-in-law. Introducing one’s socially unacceptable strumpet to his stunned family is never done. But Daniel does it anyway. And it might just be the best decision he’s ever made, for Thea’s quickly become much more than a mistress—and it’s time he told her so.

The sweet and spicy, 117,000 word Mistress in the Making historical romance bundle is a fun, “sexy Jane Austen styled”, emotionally satisfying tale told in three parts: Seductive Silence, Lusty Letters, and Daring Declarations. This digital box set contains the complete series.

Seductive Silence (Mistress in the Making Book 1) I enjoyed the entire book. The story is quite riveting and realistic. Daniel a marquess is a quiet man. But it is only a cover for his stammering. When the story described his childhood, it devastated me. It was painful, brutal and without love. His father loathed him. He grew up thinking all people would treat him as his father has. He still has a lot to overcome. He is looking for a new mistress. When his good friend suggests he attend a dinner party to meet a potential mistress he agrees. Dorothea is a penniless, destitute widow. She lives in squalor and her landlord is constantly making advances. Dorothea is an only child of parents who were the only children. She had no relatives nor friends to turn to. Until she met Sarah. Sarah was the mistress of Daniel's good friend. So, she matched Dorothea and Daniel. Dorothea knew little of sɛx, her husband was perfunctory. But she decided between living in squalor, little food if any could be had, no employment and a landlord who was getting more brutal by the day she decided to become Daniel's mistress. Thank goodness he liked her on sight. Dorothea did not know what to think of Daniel because he did not speak. Their first night together was confusing. Daniel had plenty of questions to ask but would not because of his stutter. Dorothea had questions but she felt she dare not ask when he told her to stay quiet. What a muddle. This story continues in book two and i am looking forward to reading it. Lusty Letters (Mistress in the Making Book 2) Loved this second book. The fun way Dorothea and Daniel took to pen writing missives back and forth was adorable. I enjoyed their witty and sɛxy banter. Theirs is a delightful way to get to know each other. Also, Daniel found a new safe haven to be himself, to stutter and not be ashamed. I was so happy for him. Now to book three and I can't wait to see what develops between him and Thea as he calls her. Daring Declarations (Mistress in the Making Book 3) The third book and conclusion of Mistress in The Making. This story is full of wonderful surprises. Thea meets Ellie, Daniel's sister and her husband. Ellie comes to Thea for mistress training. She wants to be sure her husband never roams from her bed. They learn some valuable information from one of Thea's friends. Thea immediately puts the information into action and Daniel thinks he is in heaven. Daniel has had several epiphanies and it has drastically changed his outlook on life. Ellie helps Thea do something for Daniel that will mean the world to him and it does have that effect. Thea returns to her squalor of a room to retrieve her mother's hair brush when the landlord begins to speak in vulgar ways and physically tries to assault her. Daniel's employee beats the landlord and Thea finishes him with a knock in the head with a heavy heeled boot. Daniel meets her at her new home and finds her trembling and not divulging what happened. But his employee did reveal what happened and Thea filled in the rest. Daniel took his friends and workers and five of them went after the landlord. Daniel returned to Thea satisfied the landlord would no longer do anyone harm. Then he sat Thea down for the talk of his life and explained what she meant to him. (sigh/swoon) What a wonderful romantic romance. I highly recommend it. I received a free copy of this book from BookSirens and am voluntarily leaving a review. Reasons I enjoyed this book: Entertaining Funny Happily Ever After Original Page-turner Romantic Realistic Unpredictable Witty Wonderful characters

Mistress in the Making #1-3 . . . The MISTRESS IN THE MAKING historical romance bundle is in the style of Jane Austen, told in three parts: Seductive Silence, Lusty Letters, and Daring Declarations. This digital box set contains the complete series. Below is a review of one of the books to give you an idea of what to expect. • Seductive Silence (Book 1) • Lusty Letters (Book 2) • Daring Declarations (Book 3) *** Reviewing “LUSTY LETTERS (BOOK 2)” *** Lord Tremayne (“Daniel”) has a persistent stammer he wishes to keep secret from Thea. But he wants to move the relationship forward and get to know her better. He decides to communicate by writing letters to woo her. Their relationship does grow and flourish with the promise of something more between them. But their witty banter on the page escalates so that Thea requests they finally meet in person. Now what will he do when his speech impediment is revealed to her? He can’t possibly make a witty impression when his stammer will ruin everything! This story line was filled with humor, longing, and intrigue. Daniel is able to freely and fully express his feelings until that confidence is shaken by Thea’s wanting to meet him face-to-face. He doesn’t want to lose her, but they do need to move forward unless they want to walk away and lose all they have gained. What choice will he make?

Excellent Three-Part Love Story I thoroughly enjoyed this three-part story when it first came out book by book. I was delighted to see the author put it all together in one compilation so an avid reader can go from one book to the next without having to even wait for a download! Some reviewers have complained that this is one story put out serially in 3 books, but the middle book is unique as it is nearly all epistolary (letters) that I can't actually imagine them being together as one single book from the start. It might feel too jarring. I had so much fun reading this again. I loved, loved, loved the swoony hero, the delightful heroine, and their love story. It has a lot of humor and heart due to the circumstances surrounding the major players. They are both strong and vulnerable in their own ways. Here are my reviews of the ifirst two books; the 3rd didn't disappoint either!. Book 1: Seductive Silence: Off to An Excellent Start I read a lot of Regency romance. Often, they are too predictable, but I never feel like this author’s books are... thank goodness! She writes a truly different Regency story. First, she writes them with much humor. In fact, if you're expecting the typical staid or refined Regency, her writing may disappoint you… but in a good way if you let it. I suggest you just be open to the story and simply go along for the ride. This particular book has not only the author’s trademark humor but touches on a subject that is certainly more serious... how people with a stutter can be ostracized. We plainly see the hero often get frustrated trying to communicate—my heart went out to him at each of his big struggles—though at times his stutter is barely there. The author has created two unique characters with their differing wounds that make them so right for each other... even though they don't fully comprehend that right away. This particular book is steamy, as you might imagine since the series is called “Mistress in the Making,” but only toward the end. By the way, this book is only the first one about this couple. I'm not sure how many the author is intending to write for them, but this only starts Thea and Lord Tremayne’s romantic arc. However, the author has set a great stage with fantastic characters with excellent backstories, and I am certainly looking forward to reading more about them. Book 2: Lusty Letters: Mostly Epistolary; All Wicked Delight This is the middle book of the author's Mistress in the Making series. It doesn't really feel like a proper series but rather a serialized novel split into three installments with cliffhangers at the ends of the first two books. In general, I am not a fan of either cliffhangers in a series or serialized installments of what would essentially be a proper novel. But I absolutely adore this author's writing style, as she imbues it with so much humor that it is a sheer delight to read, no matter the form or contrivances. She manages to ratchet it up a notch or 10 by making this book mostly epistolary in nature. The hero has a quite endearing stammer that he hides as much as he can by not talking much because he has been treated cruelly in the past because of it. So through letters, he can best express himself... and through swoony, steamy actions, of course. So this book shows the characters falling for each other and revealing character through these delightful letters. They both have such vulnerabilities for very different reasons. I love romance stories with characters who have a certain fragility finding love, understanding, and compassion with each other. This is one of those books. I highly recommend it as well as the others in the series, and you certainly have to read them in order as one builds off the other. I found this book to be an incredibly fun, steamy, and passionate read, and I hope you do as well. — I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
