I’ve read quite a few of Wendy L Anderson’s novels and I have not been disappointed once! Arianne the Mistress is absolutely fantastic. After reading Killian the Assassin, I could NOT wait for this. It was worth the wait!
Arianne is such a fantastic character. She’s had a hard life, but she is so well-rounded, you cannot help but cheer her on. I love a strong, female lead and that’s exactly what we have here.
True to this author’s style, the world building is incredible. I love this genre and I love the way Wendy L Anderson writes. A perfect combo for me!
This book has everything I’m looking for in a novel. Adventure, fantasy, fantastic world building, compelling characters… what more could I ask for!? Easy five stars from me. Can’t wait for more from this series!
I recieved a free review copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Tonight, she was going to break the rules! Maybe not all the rules, but surely some of them. Well…maybe all of them. Some or all, it was a risk she was willing to take.
During the years Arianne had lived at the Maiden’s Bower brothel, she never had a client like him before. When he appeared the first time, he made his demands and made his rules. Why he always chose her and not one of the other girls to perform this service was a mystery. From the very first, he commanded that she follow certain rules of engagement. Yes, her life was just like a war. There were rules, battles, and surrender.
Her husband was the proprietor of the Maiden’s Bower. Arianne had been a young girl when they married. Marriage only meant that she no longer had to earn food and shelter on her back. Except for this one client who had requirements that, until now, she had willingly obeyed.
The story of her life was not a new one. When she was very young, her unwed mother sold her to the brothel’s owner, and she never knew her father. Arianne did not differ much from the other girls who lived and worked as prostitutes at the Maiden’s Bower. When she came of age she was put to work as one of them. One lesson she learned from a very young age was to trust no one!
Her husband was a louse whom Arianne only referred to as, ‘the Bastard’ and not by his given name which she deliberately forgot. He took a fancy to her. The Bastard taught her to read and write and developed an appreciation for her head for numbers and her skill with potions. Eventually, he forced her into marriage, though he was at least twenty years older than her. At the time, Arianne realized that there were advantages to the union. One of them was that she could help run the brothel and stop earning her living satisfying the customers.
Then, just when her desperation to escape was the strongest, Lord Torrent appeared. Tonight, Arianne was expecting him once again.
