THE PERFECT MISTRESS
With stories filled with sass and wit, sensuality and romance, Alexander has made a name for herself, and her latest novel doesn’t disappoint. It’s a lively, fast-paced tale sprinkled with humor and heat, tinged with the slightest paranormal element and absolutely delightful. It’s the pick-me-up book of the season.
When widowed Julia, Lady Winterset, inherits her great-grandmother’s scandalous memoirs, she plans to sell them. She just doesn’t expect three men to be overly interested in the scandalous tome.
A publisher sees pound notes; a novelist sees fame; but Harrison Landingham, Earl of Mountdale, only sees his family’s reputation ruined if the book is published. It seems the only way he can stop Julia from selling the naughty memoirs would be to seduce her before anyone else. Harrison loves a challenge and after one meeting he’s intent upon winning her and the book. He doesn’t know about Julia’s relationship with her ancestress or how high the stakes are going to be.
