Crosses paths with the one prince who can't afford another sin…
As the youngest son of King Bertram II of Countavia, Frederick Arthur Louis David is a prince with a problem. Not only is he working with his six brothers to track down and expose the realm's underground anti-monarchists threatening to bring down the Crown, but he's also on the hunt for the kingdom's most notorious enemy--a cold blooded spy who is murdering Countavia's most prominent peers. Which is why the last thing he needs is to be saddled with a wife. Especially one as wild and as unpredictable as Lady Eliza Littlefield. But when he's found with her in his bed at Madame Harpcourt's--a safe house being used to conduct his mission under the guise of a brothel--he has no choice but to reel in the troublesome Eliza. Which poses problems in itself since he's secretly been attracted to the woman since they were children. But with a raging mad earl on his case, his covert mission on the brink, and a killer on the loose, what choice does he have? Keeping Eliza safe is a must. If only he knew he could keep her safe from himself--Countavia's notorious PRINCE OF SCANDAL--the situation might not be so sinful.
Romance author Carole Mortimer was born in a small village in England. She trained as a nurse for one year, but had to stop due to weakness in her back that resulted from a fall. She began writing while she was working in the computer department of a stationary company. Her first book, A Passionate Winter, was published in 1978 and she has written over 100 books since then.
What Thea so badly needs is a secret and passionate lover, to become mistress of another kind entirely, and so add excitement and spice into her humdrum life. But where is she to find this handsome and inexhaustible gentleman?
Julian Remington, the arrogant and haughty 17th Duke of Blackmoor has no interest in finding a mistress for his bedroom or his home. He’s jaded, cynical, and distrustful when it comes to women. One woman, a woman from his past, has caused too much grief in his life for him to ever trust another.
Thea and Julian are about to be caught up in a passion for each other that blazes so fiercely, and so out of control, it is beyond the power of either of them to resist.
The Duke’s Mistress is the story of an arrogant duke and an adventurous young widow, caught up in their insatiable desire for each other, the vengeful woman who would like nothing better than to see Blackmoor suffer as she has suffered, and believes Thea Fitzroy to be the means by which she will achieve it.
