The 2nd novella in Robyn DeHart’s Masquerading Mistresses is a fun follow up to Remy and Emma’s story.

Like Remy and Emma’s story, this installment has the coup... ...more

A couple of days ago I read For Her Spy Only by Robyn DeHart, and I must say that I did enjoy the story a lot. Now this is the second story in Masquerading Mistresses. Since this is a novella, I'm just going to jump in why I liked the story.
First off, I like... ...more
For a novella, I don't blame the author for rushing the story. Even though it was short it was sweet as well.
I enjoy this story a lot because you don't really read many books where the heroine's child, in this case son, has a learning disability. Winifred has definitely a heroine that everyone c... ...more
