The Mistress by Martine McCutcheonHe took one last long look at her before walking away and disappearing into the night. At that moment, Mandy knew her life would change forever . . . Mandy Sanderson is turning thirty and has everything going for her - dark ebony hair, flashing black eyes, flawless skin and a job she loves - yet, so far, true love has eluded her. Then, on the night of her birthday party, surrounded by friends she adores, Cupid strikes as Mandy and the gorgeous Jake Chaplin lock eyes across the restaurant and fall for one another in an instant. Jake is confident, successful, oozing with sex appeal and utterly irresistible. He is also married, with two children, and Mandy has always sworn not to break her own golden rule: never encourage a man to play away. Jake is used to getting what he wants, and this time it is Mandy hes determined to win, and with Jake, seduction comes in more ways than one . . . Warm, sexy and heart-wrenchingly moving, The Mistress is written by one of Britains best-loved actresses and offers a refreshingly modern take on what it is that women want.
