The Marquis and the Mistress
Available from The Dark Castle Lords
|Cosette has one option left to her -- she must catch King Henry’s eye. She must seduce him and then become his new mistress or she stands to lose everyone important to her. What she never expected was to see her betrothed. The man she believed had died ten years ago at sea. The man whose disappearance ultimately put her in the position she's in today.|
Francois has traveled to see the king for one reason only, to inform him of a possible plot against him. But when he sees the woman he has loved for the past ten years, his betrothed that he was forced to leave behind, his plans change. When he begins to believe she could be involved in the plot to bring down the king, he has to decide to turn her in or save her at any cost. Can two lost souls be reunited after so long? Or has time and circumstance forced them apart forever?
Meagan Hatfield has written an exciting tale of lost love, secrets, and devious plots. Cosette and Francois were such well-written characters. The love-hate relationship between these two wonderful people, along with the fiery passion that burns up the pages, is all consuming. I was unable to put this one down. Although at times I found the situations the characters had to withstand a little distressing, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an exciting, sexually charged romance because this has to be one of the best I have read. Hats off to this great author. I look forward to reading more of her stories in the future.
