In this wicked romp of a Regency trilogy, readers will meet the many mistresses of a legendary lover, the Marquess of Templeston.
I, George Ramsey, fifteenth Marquess of Templeston, charge my son and heir, Andrew Ramsey, with the support and responsibility for my beloved mistresses, and any children born of their bodies. As discretion is the mark of a true gentleman, I shall not give name to the ladies -- instead they will be known by a gold-and-diamond locket engraved with my seal and containing my likeness . . .
How fitting that the Marquess of Templeston should die in the arms of his mistress. And how like his responsible son to make sure the terms of the will are earned out -- no matter how outrageous. But he never imagines that one woman is living in a cottage on the grounds of his family's country estate. Even more shocking is her identity . . .
Kathryn Stafford abandoned Andrew at the altar and disappeared five years before. That she should emerge now, as his own father's lover -- and with a bastard son -- is a crushing blow to his pride . . . and to the longing that her betrayal couldn't quite destroy. But Kathryn has secret Andrew doesn't know: secrets of her vanishing, of her devotion to the marquess, and of a scandalous past that could be her ultimate downfall -- or prove her ultimate devotion to the only man she has ever really loved . . .
