THE MISTRESS’ HOUSE by Leigh Michaels is a delightful historical romance set in Regency England. It is well written with depth, details, twists, turns and is fast paced. It has romance, sensuality, love, witty dialog, mystery, secrets, and did I mention love stories. This is a story with three intertwined love stories. First, we have the sexy, handsome rakish Earl of Hawthorne, Thorne, who just happens to buy a charming little house across the garden from his town. He sets this up to be “The Mistress House.” Enter Lady Anne Keighley who is widowed, sexy, beautiful and need a lover, so she propositions Thorne and love blooms. Next, Felicity, who is a delectable country girl, and childhood friend of Lady Anne, has come to visit her dear friend in London. But she also has a plan; she wants to have a child by Lord Colford. Lord Colford’s brother, Roger, claimed to love Felicity, but was unable to marry her after he deflowered her. Then Roger died, so Felicity decides to have a child by his brother, Richard, who she believes is married… but secrets will be revealed and love blooms. During Felicity’s, visit she will stay at “The Mistress House.” Last, but not least enter Thorne’s ward, Georgiana, who is eighteen, beautiful, feisty, trying to escape an arranged marriage by her uncle. So she goes to Thorne, who sets her up in “The Mistress House.” Enter, Thorne’s cousin, Major Julian Hampton, who is just home from the war. A new Lord, he is sexy, handsome and his grandfather has arranged a marriage for him. When he first meets Georgiana, she asks him to show her how to be a “mistress.” What a challenge this will be, but Julian is the man for the job. As secrets are revealed, love will once again bloom. Apparently, “The Mistress House” is more than just a house for anyone who enters it seems to find love and happiness. This is a wonderful, enchanting story of love, magic of love, and happiness.
