Peek Inside The Mistake

For the newly-ostracized Lady Constance Thornton, the Duke of Mondvale—the “Lord of Sin”—is irresistibly magnetic. Since her reputation is already ruined in London society, why shouldn't she be impudent and dance with the scandalous “Lord of Sin”? But the innocent Lady Constance is no mere plaything for Lucan Wynwood. She will be his revenge. By ruining her, he will have his vengeance against her brother. Except that the Lady Constance is full of surprises...and now she could well be the ruin of him.

Childhood love never disappears…

Infamous courtesan Julia Forsythe is the former mistress of a ruthless marquess. She’s also expecting his child. But while she longs to flee from his cold clutches, the welfare of her unborn babe prevents it. Now she must find a way to remain a “mistress” in name, if not in deed. And her plans are only complicated by a growing affection for the estate’s head gardener…

Fifteen years ago, Adam Radcliff once shared a close friendship with Julia. Now they stand worlds apart in both lives and statuses, sharing only the memory of that old friendship. But even as Julia slips out of the marquess’s lascivious clutches, she finds herself seeking the pleasure of Adam’s company. Now Adam is falling more deeply for Julia, even knowing that wanting another man’s mistress will only bring ruin upon them both…

I like Lily Maxton's writing style. I find the story easy to follow and the descriptions of the scenery and dramas not too draggy that it takes up much of the paragraphs.

While it was good and although i did like The Mistake it was also kind of a slow book. Felt it could of had a better plot although with it being in a series my dislike could be because I haven't read the others. Despite that it was still a nice read that i would probably recommend.
