Summary
She was unlike any other woman Sir Gerald Stapleton had ever met at Mrs Blythe's "finishing school". Why was he so captivated by one woman and how did such a rare jewel of grace, beauty and refinement end up a courtesan?
Summary
Sir Gerald Stapleton has commited a most heinous crime by falling in love with his mistress. After rescuing Prissy from a house of ill-repute, Gerald sets her up in a love nest and discovers that this unaccountably well-bred mistress has secrets of her own. After spending the summer in the country together, Prissy and Gerald realize that they have fallen deeply in love and decide to separate. Bereft without Prissy and believing that she has married another, Gerald makes one last attempt to bring her happiness. Characters in this novel also appear in The Ideal Wife by Mary Balogh. Readers who enjoy this heartwarming Regency may also like Lord Wraybourne's Bethrothed by Jo Beverley, and novels by Loretta Lynda Chase and Emma Lange. (Description by: Becky Townsend) --
