Second book in Victorian-era, three-sisters triology. Story of Marietta Greentree whose reputation is ruined by her elopement to Gretna Green only to have her intended abandon her after bedding her but not marrying her. She decides her best course of action would be to emulate her natural mother, the notorious courtesan Madame Aphrodite.........
This is the second in the Greentree Sister's series. I have liked how there is a continuing "mystery" that is going throughout all the books connecting them together. It is not just each sister's story but part of a larger story.
The notorious Madame Aphrodite has 3 daughters she challenges one of them who has had no training in seduction to woo Max the disgraced Lord Roseby The only thing dangerous mysteries could foil her plans along with breaking her mother's rule never fall in love.
The boldest, most unconventional of the three Greentree sisters, Marietta believes her best course would be to emulate her natural mother, the notorious courtesan Madame Aphrodite. Being woefully unschooled in the ways of passion, however Marietta, at Aphrodite's insistance, must first prove hersef by properly seducing one man: Max Vallard, The moody, disgraced, and disinherited former Lord Roseby
