Publisher's Summary

In this captivating novel, Mary Balogh, the premier writer of Regency romance, invites you into a world of scandal and seduction, of glittering high society and intrigue, as an arrogant duke does the unthinkable - he falls in love with his mistress.

She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the mêlée, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. But Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in - were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind.

Jane tried to pretend it was strictly business, an arrangement she was forced to accept in order to conceal a dangerous secret. Surely there was nothing more perilous than being the lover of such a man. Yet as she got past his devilish façade and saw the noble heart within, she knew the greatest jeopardy of all, a passion that drove her to risk everything on one perfect month with the improper gentleman who thought love was for fools.

One of the best romance novels I have read lately

Any additional comments?

This really kept my attention. The plot was interesting and the characters likable. I stayed up all night to finish this book because I had to know how it all worked out. It is difficult to say exactly what made this book so enjoyable - it just kept my attention and made me want to keep listening. The narrator was top notch, in my opinion,

Different Than I Usually Read, but Very Good

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book even though I'm not really into romance novels. It helped that it was written in a different era. So if you like romance novels set in historical times, you'll enjoy this. Well written.

Pleasantly Surprised

I honestly had no expectations for this book. I had only ever read one Mary Balogh book and had never listened to one.
Rosalyn did a fair job; better than many but not as good as quite a few.
This book had a solid plot, some of which I saw coming long before it occurred and quite a bit more that surprised me but fit right in where and when needed. I will definitely read the next book in this series. I laughed quite a bit. The sarcasm that the hero expelled was the surprise and I loved every bit of it.

Great Love Story

What did you love best about More than a Mistress?

I liked that although it was a typical love story it wasn't 100% predictable.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that the main female character did not cower despite how intimidating the main male was.

Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

The Duke of Tresham

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh a couple of times unexpectedly.

Any additional comments?

The intimate scenes involving the mistress are not extremely explicit but the subject matter is not boring or timid either.

OMG! This was a wonderful susprise!

I laughed and I cried. What more do you want from a romance?! The narrator convinced me that there was more than one character speaking and it was easy to identify who was speaking. If you want a suspenseful romance, this is it.
