    A Man without a Mistress

    Sibilla is...unique. Not because of her forwardness given the time period of this story--women did not get involved in politics, nor did they openly discuss politics because, well, they're women--but because of her unusual requirement for a husband. I mean, what man worth his weight in gold during this period didn't have a mistress? Her requirement was brilliant, and the hope that it would buy her more time to put off marriage was worth making it, I think. Sibilla took front and center in this story for me, and Sayre was a wonderful compliment to her. He mistook her for a damsel in distress and quickly learned she was anything but. Their debates and discussions about politics might have raised a few eyebrows and caused some to whisper about her unladylike behavior, but Sayre didn't try to change her. That was breathtaking, more so than Sibilla remaining true to herself up to "The End". Sayre's past is not to be forgotten amidst the love and discovery happening. It was never far from the lighthearted moments; he carried his guilt well while ghosts from his past nipped hungrily at his heels. Respite came when he spent time with Sibilla, even if he sees himself in her penchant for taking risks. And that time with her produced feelings he hadn't dared encourage in a long time, urged him to reach for something that could be life-changing. This was an easier read than A Rogue Without a Rebel, though I'm not sure why. The abundance of history and description hasn't lessened from Book 1 to Book 2, but there is something here that wasn't as prevalent in Book 1. Commonality? Attraction? Romance? I'm not sure, but I hope to experience more of it in this series. This is, dare I say, the better of the two books so far. So how exactly does an author top a story like this? I'm not sure but I hope to find out. Complimentary copy received from publisher
