on September 16, 2012
Charlotte "Charlie" Fallon is a thirty-year old spinster who lives a secluded life in a small cottage in the country with her stray cats and flower garden. She receives a letter from her sister Deborah to visit her on Jane Street in London. Deb is radically different from her older sister. She lives on Jane Street in homes for the mistresses for the aristocratic ton. Deb is set-up on Jane Street as the mistress for Sir Michael Bayard. Bay interviewed Deb was pleased with what he saw and paid her a tidy fortune to be his mistress. Unfortunately for Bay, he hadn't warm up the sheets with Deb before he was called away to Dorset because his grandmother passed away.
Charlie would've thrown Deb's letter in the fire if she had known her sister wanted her to stay on Jane Street to explain to Bay she'd a marriage offer. Bay arrived in London late at night quietly crawl in bed mistakenly took Charlie in his arms. Charlie was asleep. She was becoming easily aroused by his caresses. Last night for Bay it was heaven. The next morning, he tried to take his mistress again but this time she resisted his touch. Charlie is awake knew it was Bay. She succumbed to his touch and Charlie lost control of her clear headedness. Bay had to learn to trust Charlie and believe that she too was a victim that was caused by her sister Deb. Bay discovered the truth about Charlie and it shattered his defenses. Charlie and Bay made a delightful couple.
Bay realized he had made a mistake when he thought that Charlie was a liar, trollop, and swindler. In the beginning, Bay thought Deb and Charlie were involved in deceiving him. He later came to the conclusion it was Deb alone, and decided he would not press any charges.
Bay's ex-wife Annie is completely off-balance. She hired four thugs to kidnap Bay. And then another night, Annie took Bay by gun point and raped him for the second time. Annie decided that she wanted a baby. Bay has a friend Jamie who's a doctor in Dorset. Bay consulted with Jamie about Annie in what course of action to take to keep her away from him and Charlie.
There were secondary characters that lived on Jane Street who were interesting and Lady Christie I was impressed with her strength... Lady Christie and her husband have been separated for five years. He purchased the house for her on Jane Street without her knowledge. Baron Christie was quite aware that Jane Street was home for the mistresses of aristocratic ton. Living on Jane Street Lady Christie has been shunned by society. She is making the best of the situation. Lady Christie is a famous writer. She writes romantic novels about courtesans. Lady Christie is kind of like a mother hen on Jane Street, who would take care of everyone. She invites the girls every Thursday for tea.
