Mistress to the Marquis (Gentlemen of Disrepute, Book 5)
"*She may possibly grace his mattress, yet she is going to by no means put on his ring*
They whisper her identify within the ballroom's shadows—*the marquis's mistress!* it is going to take all of Alice Sweetly's well known appearing abilities to play this half: smile until eventually it not hurts, till they think your lie, until eventually *you* think. fake he capacity not anything.
If the Marquis of Razeby thinks he can allow his mistress cross simply, he's so very fallacious. each one evening she appears to be like prior to a rapturous Covent backyard viewers, taunting him along with her good looks. yet Razeby needs to marry, and whereas Alice may well grace his mattress she will by no means grace his arm.
