The Make-Believe Mistress
Miss Sarah Armistead was an actress by necessity, not desire. The financial fall of her family forced her into a life that society scorned. Fortunately she had the talent to make a living and the strength to ward off the men who saw her as no better than a light-skirt.
Now, however, Sarah had to play a part that taxed not only her talent but her virtue. Lord Justin Linton was a rake as handsome as he was cynical and as successful in love as any libertine alive. He made Sarah an offer she could not afford to refuse . . . if she would let the world think she was his latest conquest. In public Sarah had no trouble following the scandalous script he wrote for her without missing a cue. But in private she found herself forgetting her proper lines, no matter how her conscience prompted her. For as this mocking master of seduction showed how skilled he was, Sarah had a harder and harder time remembering to say no!
