Angelina is very matter of fact about being an actress from London and having been a mistress to several Lords. She visits John daily, brings him lunch, spends time getting to know him and opens up to him as well. They become friends while falling in love. What will happen when John finds out Angelina was hired to seduce him? For most of the book it felt like I was waiting for the other shoe to drop....
I liked John and Angelina very much, but I feel a bit ambivalent about the plot. I enjoyed reading about their growing relationship, but the circumstances weren't ideal. But I can give the author credit for originality as I don't think I've read a similar storyline before. And a heads up for readers.... this book ends at 60% on kindle. I could tell it was ending, so it wasn't abrupt or too short, but sometimes it can seem unexpected for a book to end that soon when looking at how many kindle pages are left. Overall this book is well written, the story is pretty good and I'll read more by this author.
Angelina is no Angel, even if that becomes her nickname. I really liked that she was not a missish, scared virgin, but a woman who, while young, already had a man or two in her past. Sometimes pleasant, sometimes disappointing. (Who hasn't?) She likes sex, she's broke, and she finds this tall, muscular man extremely attractive. Triple win!
John (or Georgie, as his mother likes to call him) is a former soldier, working out his PTSD through restoring his tumbledown castle in peaceful solitude. Although she's a bit annoying, he's drawn to Angelina, and learns to enjoy her company. In and out of the makeshift bed.
His dog even likes, her, too.
Angelina has Issues of her own to work out. Falling in love is no part of her plan, but... hey, this is a romance. We know how it's got to end, but it gets there in a particularly sweet and satisfying way, on the part of both John and Angelina, with a few twists and turns along the way.
mistress for him--Angelina. Act Two: The seduction and the joining of mind as well as body and heart (love). Act Three: Angelina, realizing she has fallen in love, collecting her fee,rushes back to London not wanting to be a mistress waiting for the axe to fall, when John asked her to stay!
