Even if I didn't care for--or read--His Lordship's Mistress, although I did, I would still have given this book 5 stars. Married by Mistake has been on my list of top ten Regency favorites since I read it when it was new, and re-reading it now has only confirmed my good sense in having put it there in the first place. The writing is crisp and clean and immensely witty, the plot devious and charming; and actually those two words can easily be applied to both the hero and the heroine. Because really, it's the combination of the devious and the charm that leads to the accidental marriage of Viscount Alford to Florence Washburn in the first place.
The Viscount is supposed to stand proxy for his brother Kit, the long-time fiancé of Florrie, who spent time with the two young men during their youth. Florrie's father is in the diplomatic corps and she loves that life, so it seems only natural to marry Kit, who's really almost more of a brother than a lover, but who is also heading for that same sort of career.
Mishap after mishap follows, however, leaving Florrie and Alford married by mistake, but to each other. The two fathers conspire to send them away from the gossips in London, and in a month or two, an annulment can be sought. Needless to say, the young couple has no idea they'll end up together.
In the wilds of Devon, accessible only by a once-a-week dogcart, Hartland has a custodian couple, and little else to recommend it. Except for the resident ghost, and the hidden passage, and the smugglers and so on. Florrie and Alford take turns trying to disconcert the other, but usually ending up drawing even closer together, as their various secrets are revealed.

I must admit I bought this book solely for Joan Wolf's name on the cover. I have read some of Melinda McRae's work, though, so I thought I would enjoy her novella too. Although the book cover hypes the two stories as similar, they don't really have all that much in common besides the Regency setting.
The first story, His Lordship's Mistress, is the tale of a young woman who will do anything she can to save her family's home. You get the basic idea from the title. The second, Married by Mistake, deals with a couple who, due to their fathers' meddling, end up wed to each other unawares--a proxy marriage gone awry. They squabble their way through a smuggling subplot to find they love each other after all.
Both of these stories were easy, light reading. I preferred Joan Wolf's tale, but that may just be a matter of personal preference. If you're looking for something to keep you occupied in the waiting room or while traveling, I would recommend this book.

His Lordships Mistress is one of Joan Wolf's regencies and a very good one, written as she was getting up to speed, it is nont her best but is better than ninty-eight percent of other peoples regencies. Well written and with an unusual plot, this was one of the first books a friend recommended to me several years ago.

Loved the Joan Wolf section but never could get into the second story...The story is typical Joan Wolf with a strong woman and children and animals. Nice light reading
