Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Carolyn Turner, Viscountess Wingate, is absolutely shocked by the Ladies Literary Society of London's latest selection. Memoirs of a Mistress is scandalously explicit and downright wicked . . . and it's stirring feelings within Carolyn that she hasn't felt . . . well, ever! She's sure that this steamy read is the only reason she's succumbing to the charms of notorious rogue Daniel Sutton, Lord Surbrooke. She couldn't possibly be falling for the rascal and his illicit caresses . . . or could she?

The last thing Daniel wanted was to be shackled by marriage vows. He lusted after Carolyn, sure, but he never imagined that once he lured her to his bed he'd never want to let her go. Yet only when a murderer targets his beloved will he be spurred to confess his true love . . . and claim Carolyn as his bride.

Review:

"Spurred by the steamy memoirs of an anonymous mistress, young widow Carolyn Turner falls for the sensual promise of rakish Daniel Sutton, Earl Surbrooke, in this winning but uneven historical romance from D'Alessandro (Never a Lady). With visions of clandestine trysts planted in her head, Carolyn feels, despite herself, a powerful draw toward the disreputable Daniel; the conflicted feelings, it turns out, are mutual, but soon they decide to become lovers, if only to work the desire out of their systems. Meanwhile, Daniel's former lovers are being murdered one by one, and he's the primary suspect. As the real killer draws closer, Daniel must protect Carolyn, clear his name and try not to lose his heart in the process. Though the murder plot proves dispensable, the dialogue between Daniel and Carolyn is charming, and they're allowed plenty of space to grow as characters. Supporting characters are forgettable, but the love story makes a pleasant diversion that should satisfy fans of the genre." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

They married after both graduating from Hofstra University and are now living their happily-ever-afters in Atlanta, Georgia. They have one grown son, who is a dashing rogue in the making. The author of more than thirty historical and contemporary romances, Jacquie loves to hear from readers and can be contacted through her website.
