No Man's Mistress” by Mary Balogh. A Regency romance, I was captivated right from the beginning. Viola who had secrets and burdens no person should have, but who in spite of circumstances allows none of it to interfere with her enjoyment of her friends finds herself suddenly having to defend her right to live in her home. With determination she sets out to do whatever must be done to protect her family when she is threatened with having to go back to a reprehensible way of life, but do it she will if this is what will keep them safe.

This is a love story between Viola and with Ferdinand who would have made her leave her home.

It is a page turner with surprises throuout the book and one I would recommend highly. And, the true test for me was that I cried at the end.
