ARC: The Mistress Memoirs by Jillian Hunter

A few day ago, I finished Jillian Hunter's The Mistress Memoirs which happens to be book 13th in the A Boscastle Affairs series. To be honest, this is the first Boscatle Affairs book I have read. I must say that I enjoyed the book. The main reason I enjoyed the story is I was able to pick up and not worry about the previous books. Basically, it can be read as a stand alone. I think sometimes this is a great way to see if you would read any the other book in series (if it works).

The Mistress Memoirs is Sir Colin Boscastle's story. Colin left 13 years ago to avenge his father's death. So, he has been chasing Mason Earling for that long. He finally had to come home because his former lover, Georgette, is currently with Mason. So, he figures he can use Georgette to get to Mason. While in her company he notices her governess, Kate Walcott.

A dangerous game is afoot, the Georgette household is in the line of fire. While in the line of fire, Kate and Colin can't seem to leave each other along.

As I said, I enjoyed the story. Honestly, I do like vengeance stories, because they tend to be filled with danger. Boy danger is afoot, especially with the emotions between Colin and Kate. They do try to keep away from each other, but you know how well that works at times. Kate has her own story and is afraid that no man will truly want her with her past. Then you have Colin who is a rakehell, but he's willing to change for Kate. I have to say I was pleased with the chemistry them. I also appreciate the relationship between Kate and Georgette.

Bottom line is it was a pretty good read which I enjoyed. Plus, you can jump into the story and not feel like your missing anything from the previous books. So, if you are looking some danger, I would suggest taking a look at The Mistress Memoirs.

  1. Great review, Melody! :) It's been a long time since I read one of Hunter's books, I think it's time I fix that!


    1. Glad you enjoyed my review. This is my first Jillian book and I have to say I enjoyed it. I have seen her books around just never got a chance read them. I can see myself add more of her books.
