Mistress of the Hunt
The independent and alluring Lady Philippa decides to prove she can run as wild in love as she does on the hunting fields
Lady Philippa Raynard-Wakefield is a wealthy young widow convinced that she will never marry again; in fact, she’s chosen to reside in her husband’s Leicestershire hunting lodge to avoid the fortune-hungry suitors she frequently meets in more fashionable locales. A keen rider, Philippa would like to join in the local sport, but the fast pace, rough terrain, and ill-mannered participants of the hunts are considered unsuitable for ladies. Even Viscount Rochford, with his mesmerizing gray eyes, will not permit her to join his hunt—although he doesn’t object to her company on other occasions. If Rochford won’t give his approval, then Philippa will have to take matters into her own hands . . .
