From the Author
The Count's Last Mistress
was inspired by the ground-breaking Mary Cassatt and other artistic Americans living in Paris during the 1860s and 1870s. My imagination took over from there! This romance is the first in a series featuring the Valencourt family. The second, The Rake's Proposition, is set mainly in Manhattan during the Gilded Age.
