This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
With five siblings to care for, Prudence Hixsby's duty comes first, even if it means becoming a spinster. When the eldest - and most cherished - of her younger brothers decides to join the war, however, Prudence is determined to keep him safe. So she strikes a bargain with an old acquaintance: her body in exchange for her brother's safety.
In the dead of the night, she slips into the bed of a man whose touch is both fierce and passionate... little knowing she's just seduced the wrong man.
Harrison Carlisle, the Duke of Sutcliffe, never imagined that the lovely Prudence would honour his bed, or just how bewitching those lush curves could be. Yet he keeps a gentleman's silence. After all, a spy for the Crown can ill afford to marry. But when Prudence's brother is killed, they find themselves uniting to track down the traitorous murderer. And while death lurks within the shadowy world of espionage, there is also passion... and the unbidden thrill of a seduction!
A Masquerading Mistresses Novella
Harrison Carlisle, Duke of Sutcliffe, has always wanted Prudence Hixsby but fought hard not to show it. Being a member of the Seven, an elite group of men and women working for the Crown, often brings danger into his life and he didn't want to expose her to that. Prudence's brother, Johnston, wants to fight in the war and she will do anything to prevent him from coming to harm. Sir Bailey Fenton wants Prudence. He's offered, through his influence, to prevent Johnston from leaving the country to fight. There's only one condition to his proposal. Prudence must have sex with him. What happens when she enters his dark chambers to have sex, follows through, only to find out it wasn't him she was with because she entered the wrong room?
Fantastic story line! This book has it all! Mystery, intrigue, romance, love and betrayal. Robyn DeHart writes a brilliant historical. I love reading historicals with strong female characters, especially in a time that women were thought to be good only for babies and parties. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read more from this very talented author.
