Mistress of My Fate

Hallie Rubenhold

A historical story set in 18th century England: By the author of the book behind the BBC hit costume drama THE SCANDALOUS LADY W

Georgian England, 1789. Under a cloud of scandal, Henrietta Lightfoot flees her home at Melmouth Park. She has little money and no worthwhile talents, for what use is a neat stitch and a pretty voice outside the drawing room? Without family support, her only hope of survival lies with the dashing but elusive Lord Allenham...

In a desperate quest to find him, Henrietta embarks on a journey through London’s debauched and glittering underworld, where she discovers more about her own mysterious past than she could have imagined. With the aid of new-found skills at the card table and on the stage, will Henrietta be able to turn her life around to become mistress of her fate?
