Seductive Silence

Mistress in the Making

Book 1
Literary Madness

“Sweet and Spicy!!! Such a gem!...with every story Mrs. Lyons writes, I’m left with a smile.” Krysta Reviews

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. He just hopes she can hear what’s in his heart.

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…though given the lackluster nature of her tepid marriage, she doubts her ability to tempt—much less please—an experienced man.

Jane Austen fans who like to laugh out loud and always wished her fun and witty books had more heat are likely to enjoy this sweet and spicy Regency romance series told in three parts: Seductive Silence, Lusty Letters, and Daring Declarations.

Seductive Silence is Book 1 of 3 the Mistress in the Making series: a fun, “sexy Jane Austen styled”, emotionally satisfying tale; the HEA is in Book 3, Daring Declarations.

“I recommend all three of the Mistress in the Making books to anyone who enjoys electric passion, witty humor, and a beautiful love story!” Reading Rebel Reviews

“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
