The Wicked Lord’s Mistress is set in the late Victorian period (1886) for fans of upstairs/downstairs dramas such as Downton Abbey and steamy romances. It explores the continuing love story between Lily, a lady’s maid at Torrington Hall, and a handsome, mysterious aristocratic hero called Lord Edgar Wilson.
Lily is surrounded by challenges from all sides. She is being blackmailed by the evil Mallkins, she has a secret past that she is trying to hide, and her forbidden love affair with Lord Wilson grows more risky every day. Can their lusty affair transform into the tender and lasting love that Lily craves? And given the differences in their class, is a happy ending possible for them?
Then a new enemy comes into Lily’s life, someone who is determined to destroy her. Lily finds herself facing the greatest challenge of her life, and hopes that Lord Wilson will be her hero.
Rousing, mischievous, and suspenseful!
The Wicked Lord’s Mistress is a spirited, regency romance that transports you back to the late 1880s where Lily, a troubled, passionate Lady’s Maid who after surviving the untimely death of her parents and the man she loved is determined to do whatever it takes to protect her young son, escape the hands of a master manipulator, and keep her heart far away from the roguish Lord Wilson.
The prose is amusing and light. The characters are sultry, troubled, and secretive. And the plot is a mysterious tale full of scoundrel behaviour, family drama, desire, yearning, control, manipulation, class stratification, and steamy romance.
Overall, The Wicked Lord’s Mistress is an easy, enjoyable, quick read by Jameson that is entertaining and a little naughty. It’s the second novel in The Lord’s Seduction series and even though it can be enjoyed as a standalone story, I would highly recommend reading The Wicked Lord and the Lady’s Maid first.
