This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Shy, self-effacing Lady Henrietta was the wallflower beneath his notice…until a terrible mistake has one dangerous, delicious rake believing she's the "fair Cyprian" ordered for his pleasure.
Lady Henrietta has always known her place—in her dazzling older sister's shadow. She's a little brown peahen to Araminta's bird of paradise.
But when the innocent debutante is mistaken for her common namesake "Hetty" and embroiled in the Regency underworld, she finds herself shockingly compromised by the dashing, dangerous Sir Aubrey, the very gentleman her heart desires. And the man Araminta has in her cold, calculating sights.
Branded an enemy of the Crown, bitter over the loss of his wife, Sir Aubrey wants only to lose himself in the warm, willing body of the young "prostitute" Hetty. As he tutors her in the art of lovemaking, Aubrey is pleased to find Hetty not only an ardent student, but a bright, witty and charming companion.
Despite a spoiled Araminta plotting for a marriage offer and a powerful political enemy damaging his reputation, Aubrey believes he's been set up to suffer his greatest betrayal at the hands of the little "concubine" who's managed to breach the stony exterior of his heart.
Until the 'the little brown peahen' reveals her true colors.
If you like fast-paced historical romance laced with intrigue and mystery with a surprise twist at the end, you'll enjoy the captivating, Regency-set Daughters of Sin series.

Fun Regency Romance!
What a Regency romp of a romance this was! There was plenty of angst in the story because the hero (Sir Aubrey) was a rogue looking for a beautiful heiress and the heroine (Hettie) was considered by most to be plain, including her family and a mean-spirited favored older sister. There was also a mystery because there were doubts about the reasons for the suicide of Sir Aubrey’s wife and a villain who was trying to find a letter left behind by the suicide victim that would implicate him in her death. I had to laugh at the ridiculous situations Hettie found herself in due to her innocent errors and misplaced kindnesses. Altogether it was an enjoyable Regency romance.
