The Gamekeeper's Lady Frederica Bracewell grew up under a cloud of shame. As an illegitimate child, she was treated like a servant by her uncle. It wasn't until she encountered the new gamekeeper, Lord Robert Mountford, that shy, innocent Frederica started to feel like a true lady...Robert had been banished by his family and after a debauched existence he revelled in the simplicity of a gamekeeper's lifestyle. Until temptation struck! Frederica's plain appearance and stuttering speech were a far cry from the ladies of the ton, but she might just be his undoing...and unmasking! More Than a Mistress Charles Mountford, Marquis of Tonbridge, has long felt the weight of responsibility. He knows he must do his duty and take a wife. But when he's left snowbound with the unconventional Miss Honour Meredith Draycott, he finds that his inner rogue wants to come out to play. Merry doesn't need a man - no matter how handsome he is! Sadly, society takes a different view. Charlie is more than happy to make her socially acceptable, but only if she acts publicly as his betrothed...and privately as his mistress!
