His Secret Mistress by Cathy Maxwell
Updated: Mar 3
This was a wonderful romance by Ms. Maxwell whom I’ve read before and absolutely loved the characterizations she derived in the telling. In fact, she even gave me quite a surprise with the ending – actually an ending I had not expected!
The Logical Men’s Society – was an exclusive bachelor’s club – where brandy flows like a river, bawdy and bodacious stories abound, and any gentleman even thinking of marriage is swiftly persuaded otherwise.
You see many years before the founder of this club trusted his heart to an exquisite beauty who also happened to be an actress, Kate Addison and they shared one intimate night of passion before fate and a betrayal intervened.
Though Brandon was blindsided thinking the betrayal was on Kate’s side and Kate was led to believe it was Brandon’s betrayal. Consequently, now ten years later, both hold one another in contempt! Brandon wouldn't have anything to do with her, except for the fact that it seems Brandon’s young untried ward, has fallen head over heels in love with Kate, and Brandon must intervene to get Kate to let him go!
Naturally, there is more than meets the eye and both these stubborn people are so hurt and fragile! Their long-ago passionate liaison had ruined them both for any other – so naturally, the flame was still sparking between them even they both hated one another. If only, they would just take the time to discuss what happened!
In the end, Brandon’s love for Kate exiled him for the last ten years. Trusting Brandon had broken Kate’s heart and ruined her. But could fate give them a second chance to re-discover the truth and be able to forgive?
A marvelous - fast-paced and lively read you won’t be able to put down!
