After a year of grand adventures touring the classical ruins of Italy and Greece, Iphiginia Bright returned to England to discover that the real excitement was at home. It seems that her Aunt Zoe has fallen victim to a sinister blackmailer and only Iphiginia can hope to stop the culprit before he can do more harm. Her plan is inspired: Imitating history's most legendary beauties--Cleopatra, Helen of Troy, Aphrodite--the former schoolmistress will remake herself, and descend upon London Society as the dazzling mistress of Marcus Valerius Cloud, the infamous Earl of Masters. Rumors hint that the Earl has disappeared at the blackmailer's hands, and by posing as his unknown mistress, Iphiginia is convinced she can ferret out the villain. Overnight, Iphiginia is transformed into a vision with a host of eager admirers, including one she does not expect -- the Earl of Masters himself, who strides into a shimmering ballroom one evening to cooly reclaim his "mistress". He is everything they say he is... arrogant, attractive, devastatingly seductive, and Iphiginia can't help but be enthralled. But when Marcus agrees to play along with her charade, she doesn't know that the determined earl has plans of his own: to tease and tempt her, until the beautiful deceiver becomes more than his mistress in name only.… (mer)

This was actually a pretty good historical mystery romance since both of the main characters had a sense of humor plus acted intelligent. I loved how Iphiginia did/did not follow society rules and the Masters set of rules. Adding a mystery to the story made it more interesting especially the ways that the couple tried to solve it. I also enjoyed the interactions with the secondary characters. Would read another of her books. ( )

Este librito es un llamado a aceptar nuestra responsabilidad de interceder por otros, aplicándonos seriamente a orar por ellos, a romper al hábito de las oraciones superficiales y ascender al plano de las oraciones efectivas, protectoras y estratégicas. A asumir un ministerio de oración que ayude a otros en la batalla y traiga gloria a Dios.

Mistress by Amanda Quick
Narrated by: Barbara Rosenblat

2 Stars - Found this audiobook in Audible’s Romance Package and decided to read something from when I first fell in love with romance! I remember loving Amanda Quick and quickly making it through her entire backlist. This time around, I found that the book lacked the witty dialogue I have come to expect in my historical romances, and instead favours discussing antiquities. I wonder if just my tastes have changed or if perhaps I just chose one of the books that wasn’t her best. I am sure I will try another of hers again in the future and see. The plot itself was alright, but I did find that it seemed to drag a bit.

The narrator did a good job. I would listen to her again.

Mistress
3 Stars

Marcus Cloud, Earl of Masters, is astonished to learn that his non-existent mistress is taking London by storm. Thus, he returns to Town to meet his "paramour", Mrs. Iphiginia Bright, only to discover that the intriguing young woman has adopted this masquerade to ferret out the identity of a nefarious blackmailer. Soon the two join forces to unmask the villain and perhaps turn their charade into something more real.

Marcus and Iphiginia are very likable as individuals and they have wonderful chemistry together. Unfortunately, the suspense plot is contrived with a very obscure and the culprit is obvious with an obscure and incomprehensible motive.

Moreover, Marcus's brother Bennet has got to be one of the most obnoxious characters in the history of romance. He is a self-absorbed, judgmental hypocrite and his behavior toward Iphiginia is unforgivable. The fact that it is more or less glossed over has the book losing a star.

While my read through Quick's backlist is enjoyable, it may be time to take a break for a while and get back to it later. ( )
