That was before he met Caroline Parker. Wedding a scandalous beauty by special license days after they met did not inspire respect for his sangfroid. Moving her to a notorious lovebirds' nest as punishment for her flighty nature was perhaps also a blow. And of course talk has gotten out of his irresistible clandestine visits.

The man was impossible, the devil himself, to taunt her with such an enormous amount of money. She would be set for life, never wondering whether she should sell one of Deb’s castoffs, never tatting. another inch of lace if she didn’t want to. The banknotes she had in the ginger jar could fall into the fire and she needn’t deign to singe her fingers to rescue them

Maggie Robinson is a former teacher, library clerk, and mother of four who woke up in the middle of the night, absolutely compelled to create the perfect man and use as many adjectives and adverbs as possible doing so. A transplanted New Yorker, she lives with her not quite perfect husband in Maine. I'd forgotten how hot Maggie Robinson can be, just ask my Kindle. The creaking was audible as I gripped it tightly, my heart racing, my toes curling as I sighed from the sexual chemistry between Bay and Charlotte.

Praise for Maggie Robinson's Mistress by Mistake. Sizzles off the page.

Scandal Is Only The Beginning . . . Charlotte Fallon let her guarded virtue fall once-and she's paid dearly for it ever since. She swore she'd never succumb to men's desires again. But even a village spinster's life miles from temptation can't save her from a sister with no shame whatsoever. Or a heart that longs for more, whatever the cost . . . Sir Michael Bayard found more than he expected in his bed when he finally joined his new mistress. He'd fantasized about her dewy skin and luscious curves, assured her understanding that what passed between them was mere dalliance. But he didn't expect the innocence and heat of her response in his arms. Nor her surprisingly sharp tongue once she was out of them . . . A few days of abandon cannot undo the hard-learned lessons of a lifetime. Nor can an honest passion burn away the restraints of society's judgments. Unless, of course, one believes in nonsense like true love . . .
Charlotte "Charlie" Fallon is a thirty-year old spinster who lives a secluded life in a small cottage in the country with her stray cats and flower garden. She receives a letter from her sister Deborah to visit her on Jane Street in London. Deb is radically different from her older sister. She lives on Jane Street in homes for the mistresses for the aristocratic ton. Deb is set-up on Jane Street as the mistress for Sir Michael Bayard. Bay interviewed Deb was pleased with what he saw and paid her a tidy fortune to be his mistress. Unfortunately for Bay, he hadn't warm up the sheets with Deb before he was called away to Dorset because his grandmother passed away.

Charlie would've thrown Deb's letter in the fire if she had known her sister wanted her to stay on Jane Street to explain to Bay she'd a marriage offer. Bay arrived in London late at night quietly crawl in bed mistakenly took Charlie in his arms. Charlie was asleep. She was becoming easily aroused by his caresses. Last night for Bay it was heaven. The next morning, he tried to take his mistress again but this time she resisted his touch. Charlie is awake knew it was Bay. She succumbed to his touch and Charlie lost control of her clear headedness. Bay had to learn to trust Charlie and believe that she too was a victim that was caused by her sister Deb. Bay discovered the truth about Charlie and it shattered his defenses. Charlie and Bay made a delightful couple.

Bay realized he had made a mistake when he thought that Charlie was a liar, trollop, and swindler. In the beginning, Bay thought Deb and Charlie were involved in deceiving him. He later came to the conclusion it was Deb alone, and decided he would not press any charges.

Bay's ex-wife Annie is completely off-balance. She hired four thugs to kidnap Bay. And then another night, Annie took Bay by gun point and raped him for the second time. Annie decided that she wanted a baby. Bay has a friend Jamie who's a doctor in Dorset. Bay consulted with Jamie about Annie in what course of action to take to keep her away from him and Charlie.

There were secondary characters that lived on Jane Street who were interesting and Lady Christie I was impressed with her strength... Lady Christie and her husband have been separated for five years. He purchased the house for her on Jane Street without her knowledge. Baron Christie was quite aware that Jane Street was home for the mistresses of aristocratic ton. Living on Jane Street Lady Christie has been shunned by society. She is making the best of the situation. Lady Christie is a famous writer. She writes romantic novels about courtesans. Lady Christie is kind of like a mother hen on Jane Street, who would take care of everyone. She invites the girls every Thursday for tea.
Well, the second read through of this book was more satisfying than the first. There were things I remembered and things I missed. Of course I knew who the crazy was but even on the second read through, I still cringed at the way she acted.

Charlotte "Charlie" Fallon has rushed to London, afraid that her baby sister has taken ill. Wrong. Her sister Deborah, the most sought after courtesan in all of London, has decided to run away with the third son of an earl, and intends to have Charlotte take her place as new mistress to one, Sir Michael Xavier Bayard. Of course Charlotte, ever the proper lady, decides to straighten everything out with Bay the morning after Deborah runs off.

Cue in the sinfully delicious Sir Michel Xavier Bayard. He arrives in the dead of night, after spending a month away being with his grandmother before she passes and making funeral arrangements. Bay can no longer wait to take Deborah so, upon his arrival at the Jane Street house, he crawls into bed with her. She's not what he expected. Well, duh! It's Charlotte, not Deb. But he doesn't know that.

Charlotte wakes up to Bay trying to make love to her and screams. Well, you would too if a stranger was sucking on your nipples and you're somewhat aroused by it. Charlotte tries to explain to Bay what happened and how she came to be in his bed. Turns out, Deborah stole a necklace that belonged to Bay's deceased grandmother. Until the necklace is returned, Charlotte must take Deborah's place as Bay's mistress. Eep!

And the story gets crazy. Charlotte is physically attracted to Bay. I mean, who wouldn't be? He's got magic fingers, lips, [insert body part here-- yes, even THAT body part]. They carry on a very steamy relationship while trying to deny their attraction. Pfft. We know how well that will turn out.

Bay has a man looking for Deborah, he's got a fantastic sexual relationship with Charlotte, then his crazy ex-wife blows into town and all hell breaks loose. She's a total looney. Apparently she was married to some other man who they thought dead, then he comes back so that makes her marriage to Bay null. Got that so far? Bay is still semi-head over heels in love with her which turns him into a drinking fool. Sheesh! Men! Now the ex-wife wants to get back together and have a baby with him. Then Charlotte and Bay fight, she turns into a watering pot, she destroys property (okay, those cherub figurines are pretty ugly and quite creepy), and in the middle of it all, Bay gets kidnapped.

I fell in love with both Charlotte and Bay the second time around. There were scenes I'd forgotten about and scenes forever imprinted in my memory.

I must say that Ms. Robinson writes like her hero, Bay. It is pure poetry, meant to seduce, titillate, excite and ensnare the reader from the first chapter until the last. I'd forgotten how hot Maggie Robinson can be, just ask my Kindle. The creaking was audible as I gripped it tightly, my heart racing, my toes curling as I sighed from the sexual chemistry between Bay and Charlotte. It's almost like a soap opera, complete with mistaken identity, kidnapping, crazy ex-wife, expert lover hero, self conscious heroine, and a floozy of a sister who ends up being content with someone you didn't expect. Oh, and a few plot twists. Ms. Robinson, I'll be putting the rest of the series on The List.
