The Mysterious Governess

Book 3 in my Daughters of Sin series tells the story of brave and determined governess, Lissa, the illegitimate daughter of Viscount Partington. When she is drawn unwillingly into the orbit of her scheming vain and beautiful half-sister, the nobly born Araminta, Lissa elicits the help of Lord Debenham's enterprising man of business to turn the tables.

Buckskin trousers not only left men of the Regency Era looking dashing but they also provided plenty of eye candy for the ladies! I can imagine my lovely hero, Ralph Tunley, sporting these as he shimmies up the drainpipe to rescue Lissa.

"After the Misdeed" by Jean Béraud (1885) - "Nineteenth century viewers would be certain that the misdeed she'd just committed must be sexual. Her beautifully fashionable clothing could either show that she's a well-bred lady who has wandered - a pampered daughter rejecting a proper suitor for a cad, or an adulterous wife, instantly filled with regret? Or is she a demi-mondaine, a woman who sold her virtue in return for that elegant fur tippet and bustled dress?"
