No Man's Mistress!
After being kidnapped by highwaymen, Fiona Chapman is a tarnished woman, or so the gossips have it. Nevertheless, she's not about to succumb to the seduction of her rescuer, the beguiling Major Luke Wolfson. After all, isn't he one of her abductors' cohorts?
Yet when her new role as governess is retracted, Fiona is greatly tempted by Luke's offer to make her his mistress. But she won't submit - not unless he's prepared to make her a much more honorable proposal...
Mary Brendan was always a keen reader of historical romance, and she decided to try her hand at writing a Regency novel during her youngest son's afternoon naps. What started as a lazy lunchtime indulgence, sandwich in one hand, notepad in the other, soon developed into a highly enjoyable part-time occupation. When time permits, she relaxes by browsing junk shops for curios and antiques, or by visiting the local Tandoori for a prawn dansak and a glass or two of red wine.
