Book Review: Mistress by Mistake by: Maggie Robinson


Publisher: Kensington Publishing Corp

Publish Date: May 2010

Origins: Won the ARC from Giveaway

Format: Softcover

Blurb: Charlotte Fallon let her guarded virtue fall once—and she’s paid dearly for it ever since. She swore she’d never succumb to men’s desires again. But even a village spinster’s life miles from temptation can’t save her from a sister with no shame whatsoever. Or a heart that longs for more, whatever the cost…

Sir Michael Bayard found more than he expected in his bed when he finally joined his new mistress. He’d fantasized about her dewy skin and luscious curves, assured her understanding that what passed between them was mere dalliance. But he didn’t expect the innocence and heat of her response in his arms. Nor her surprisingly sharp tongue once she was out of them…

A few days of abandon cannot undo the hard-learned lessons of a lifetime. Nor can an honest passion burn away the restraints of society’s judgments. Unless, of course, one believes in nonsense like true love…

Review in 5: Sensual, Fun, Romantic, Heart-Warming, Sweet

Review: I really enjoyed reading this book. Charlie and Bay are both sweet, fun, and certainly uh...sensual characters. I loved how Charlie brought Bay out of his egotistic world for a bit and I love how Bay made Charlie melt into a real women and  not the stuffy old lady that she wants to be.

The story is sweet, the characters start out super hot and as the pages turn you start to see affection, even when the characters aren't seeing it yet. Then you start to see love. I like the progression in this book from lust to love, it is very believable. I also love that this book is very practical and very believable. I won't go into to much detail here. If you want a super fun, fiery romance, definitely pick up this book. It is so good!
