The Lord's Seduction book #2

My thanks to the author for my ecopy of this book
and to Rachel's Random Resources for the invitation to be part of this blog tour

The Wicked Lord’s Mistres 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.

What did I think about it..

This steamy, sexy romp through late-Victorian England continues the story which began in the first book of the series, The Wicked Lord and the Lady's Maid which introduced us to Lord Edgar Wilson and Lily, the eponymous the lady's maid.  The Wicked Lord's Mistress continues where the previous story left off with Edgar and Lily's clandestine relationship moving forward despite all the trials and tribulations of Lily's life as a maid in an aristocratic household.

This is such a fun read with all the necessary ingredients for a lively romp through the drawing rooms and gentleman's clubs of Victorian high society as Lily continues to try to make the best of what her life has become. That she is enamoured of the handsome Lord Edgar is without doubt, but both of them have some reservations, and also Lily has a huge secret which, if Edgar finds out, she will be lost to him forever.

I raced through this novel, it's an interesting story with a few unexpected twists and turns. There's also a nice sense of how life is for those who work below stairs, opposed to those who have all the trappings of wealth and prosperity. I particularly enjoyed the mystery surrounding Lily and a rather unsavory person who seems hellbent on ruining her reputation. However, it is Edgar and Lily's erotic relationship which sizzles and sparkles with all the passionate intensity of a forbidden love affair.

At the start of this novel, the author does a nice precis of what's happened so that for those who haven't read the first book, you can very easily pick up the story, but of course, as with all series it's best to read them in the order they were published.

If you enjoy steamy, sizzling historical romances then The Wicked Lord's Mistress will keep you entertained from start to finish.
