The Marquess of Wesley is out for blood. For a year, Lord Wesley has tried to undo the devastation his father left to Penndrake, their ancestral home, only to discover the man gambled it away right before his death. Now Wesley is being blackmailed by the new owner into marrying a woman he’s never met in order to get it back. But his intentions are less than honorable…

At one and twenty, Miss Kate Holden intends to become a governess, having sworn off all men years ago. However, her plans are halted when she receives a daunting letter from her cousin about a Lord Wesley. Ignorant of the name, and the devilish marquess that wears it all too well, she nearly ends up compromised. Refusing to fall prey to Wesley’s skillful seduction, Kate decides to turn things around on the rake. But the high-stakes game between them soon leads to her losing the last thing she expected…her heart.

A Mistress for Penndrake is a matchmaker trope with a twist.

Of course, Kate has no idea what Edwar ...more

Wesley is more of a demanding than asking sort of man, “I did not pose it as a question, Miss Holden.” Wesley sometimes has to ease his lady's fears, "Wesley closed the distance between them. “Not all men without their clothes are…skinny, small, and…atrocious,” he said, trying not to chuckle when Ka ...more

From the “Ye Olde” dialogue that peppers this tale to the bosoms nearly falling out of their confines, Tammy L. Bailey’s A MISTRESS FOR PENNDRAKE is a delightfully entertaining tale of romance and the sticky wicket two souls make of falling in love!

A sizzling battle of wills that scorches the pages. The story is filled with words hurled back and forth as weapons in a war to see who will give in first to the feelings crackling between the two major characters. The push and pull between then is what makes this book such a page turner. In the end ...more

I liked this book more than I thought I would based on the first few chapters. Upon our lead characters "meet cute", they fall into immediate heavy lust, which was very hard to believe.
