This is amongst the Malory Brothers Novel that I have followed through, the next generation actually, and still very much interesting. It is every woman’s dream to meet their prince charming, and so Kelsey did, in a whore house. Not because she is a whore but had the misfortune of needing to be auction just to save her family. Luckily, Lord Derek Malory had to outbid the highest bidder who he had a previous misfortune of having a squabble with and knows to be a sadist, thus had been her buyer.
But in every “happiness” there is an ordeal to pass through. How can a mistress be accepted in such a wealthy family? Will society ever approve of it? Will love blossom and will it be enough? What of the pride of the rival Derek publicly outshined? Will he give up that easily or there be another encounter?
Read and enjoy the thrill and romantic turn about of the story as I did.
