This was only my third book by Amanda uick but I knew what to expect from her a funny and charming story with a bright but uirky heroine who defies society s conventions a brooding hero who s in need of an emotional makeover and a somewhat convoluted mystery to be solved while the Hh fall in love with each other Mistress had all that but it was by no means predictable In fact the mystery plot had some very unexpected twists and I m still a little dizzyIphiginia ugh what a name Bright is a 27 year old financially independent country spinster who s just returned to England after a year touring the ruins of Italy when she learns that her dear aunt Zoe is being blackmailed Determined to find out who the blackmailer is so she can put a stop to hisher unsavory threats Iphiginia decides to pose as the unsuspecting Earl of Masters s latest mistress in order to gain access to his inner circle of acuaintancesfriends See she s sure she ll find the blackmailer among them and she believes Masters is dead so her plan is uite brilliant isn t it Unfortunately for her her alleged lover is very much alive and than curious to meet his newest mistressMarcus Valerius Cloud Earl of Masters is a bit suspicious of Iphiginia s charade and doesn t buy her explanation especially after he finds out that one of his friends is being blackmailed But even though he thinks that Iphiginia is the blackmailer he doesn t put a stop on her charade and plays along with her decided to see how far she ll go The fact that he s than enchanted by her and wouldn t mind making her his newest mistress for real isn t relevant because he lives his life by a set of simple and straightforward rules he formulated several years ago and never deviates from them 1 Never remarry 2 Never discuss the past 3 Never explain his actions to others 4 Never retreat from an objective or alter a decision 5 Never get involved with virgins or other men s wivesLittle does Marcus know but Iphiginia is going to make him break all his rules one by one in a short time And he won t regret it This was another great book by Ms uick and I really liked Marcus Iphigina and the whole cast of secondary characters Marcus s sarcastic comments and Iphiginia s smart replies were so funny to read I couldn t get enough of their witty banter There were some serious moments between them too especially when he finally broke Rule 2 but the lighter scenes were the ones that sparkledMarcus was a bit inconsistent at first he was known to gather all facts before reaching a conclusion and making a decision remember Rule 4 which made him a very judicious man but he uickly assumed that Iphiginia was the blackmailer without any evidence to support that Granted he didn t stick to that misconception too long and he learned to trust her beyond doubt but his initial behavior was frustrating Overall he was a well drawn hero and it was very nice to see him breaking all his rules and becoming a better person in the endBased on the premise I thought I would have a problem with Iphiginia because let s face it her plan to unmask the blackmailer was just crazy As I read the book it started to make sense I mean the ton didn t know her and she could retire uietly after the charade was over with no damage to her or anyone s reputation so I was happy to go along with it Plus Iphiginia was a blast of fun and I can forgive a lot of nonsense when I connect with the characters in a book That said I wasn t fully happy with the way things ended for herview spoilerMarcus married Iphiginia and they lived HEA but she d be forever viewed as the mistress who got lucky and managed to marry her lover because her true identity was never revealed to the ton To be fair I don t know what other ending would have been possible since revealing that she was in fact a single woman pretending to be a mistress would have ruined her reputation so I guess Ms uick had to settle for the lesser of two evils Oh well hide spoiler
