‘Only a Mistress Will Do’ by Jenna Jaxon is book Three in the “House of Pleasure” series. This is the story of Violet and Tristan. I have not yet read the other books yet in this series, so this was a standalone book for me.
Violet has hit on hard times since the death of her brother, his friend and her grandmother. Now with nothing left she turns to Madame Vestry house of pleasure for a job. There she trains to be one of the ladies of the night. Madame Vestry puts her to one of her special clients with the information that she is a virgin. The night she is to meet her first customer she finds it is Tristan and she learns that he had known her brother. This moves Tristan to save her and not go forward with their ‘night’.
Tristan tells her he will find her a decent job or possible a husband….something better than this life at Madame Vestry. But will Tristan be able to let her go?
