Trapped in a little country town for twenty-six years, Iphiginia Bright lost no time in closing down her academy for young ladies to set off on a life of grand adventure. But after touring the classical ruins of Italy and Greece she returned to England to discover that the real excitement was there at home. Her aunt Zoe has fallen victim to a sinister blackmailer and only Iphiginia can hope to stop the culprit before her can do more harm. Her plan is inspired: Imitating history's most legendary beauties - Cleopatra, Helen of Troy, Aphrodite - the former schoolmistress will remake herself from head to toe and descend upon London society as the dazzling mistress of one of the town's most powerful men, Marcus Valerius Cloud, the infamous Earl of Masters.He is everything they say he is - arrogant, attractive, devastatingly seductive - and Iphiginia can?t help but be enthralled. But when Marcus agrees to play along with her charade, she doesn't know that the determined earl has plans of his own: to tease and tempt her, until the beautiful deceiver becomes more than his mistress in name only.

Mistress is a good story

This story is very good if you have the whole book. Do not bother with the short version there is not enough of it to make any sense.

bad production

The quality of the production was bad. The background noise was overly loud and there was music placed at odd intervals. My advice is to stick with the written book instead with this one.
