Duchess of Seduction
Cressida must learn the skills of a courtesan and the cunning of a spy-master to regain her once-devoted husband’s affections.
Cressida, Lady Lovett, believes her reluctance in the bedchamber—caused by a brush with death during her last childbirt—has driven her husband into another woman’s arms.
Desperate to learn the truth behind Lord Lovett’s increasing absences, she follows him to Mrs. Plumb’s notorious Salon of Sin, expecting the worst.
Instead, Cressida discovers an unlikely ally who equips the innocent young wife with some tricks of the demimondaine’s trade and sparks in Cressida a desire to set to rights an old injustice.
