here.) Maggie's next full-length novel, Mistress by Marriage will be released tomorrow (August 30th) and promises more of the same. Here's Maggie to tell you more about the third book in her Courtesan Court series, Mistress by Marriage!
Thanks so much for having me back! I’m excited to talk about Mistress by Marriage, the last “Mistress” book in the Courtesan Court series, which comes out tomorrow. They all take place on Jane Street, my fictional mistress row in London. I get a kick that people actually Google “Jane Street” now looking for it on a map. It’s only in my head, and you’d get lost for sure in there. ;)
But wait…there’s one more book in the series, but it’s a “Master” book, Master of Sin, and Jane Street is traded in for a wild island in the Outer Hebrides. I hope I get invited back next April to talk about it, (PJ popping in to tell Maggie she's always welcome here!) but if you want to get a sneak peek, I’ve posted the cover and the back cover copy on my blog at www.maggierobinson.net
Well, I couldn’t have that. The book would have been over by page 20. I had to throw them back together somehow. Here’s the back cover blurb:
Too late for cold feet
Baron Edward Christie prided himself on his reputation for even temperament and reserve. That was before he met Caroline Parker. Wedding a scandalous beauty by special license days after they met did not inspire respect for his sangfroid. Moving her to a notorious lovebirds’ nest as punishment for her flighty nature was perhaps also a blow. And of course talk has gotten out of his irresistible clandestine visits. Christie must put his wife aside—if only he can get her out of his blood first.
Too hot to refuse
Caroline Parker was prepared to hear the worst: that her husband had determined to divorce her, spare them both the torture of passion they can neither tame nor escape. But his plan is more wicked than any she’s ever heard. Life as his wife is suffocating. But she cannot resist becoming her own husband’s mistress…
Edward comes up with a brilliant idea. Not. He thinks if he gives Caro a list to follow, she’ll become a suitable, dutiful wife. Caro, as you might expect, has other ideas.
Are you a list-maker like Edward or impulsive like Caro? What would be on your list to assure a happy marriage? One commenter will get a signed copy of Mistress by Marriage!

Thanks for visiting with us today, Maggie. I can't wait to find out Caro's response to that list!
