Being a governess was truly the only path open to Olivia Fairfax. Left as a child on the doorstep of Miss Clearwater's School for Girls, she had lived her life among the spoiled and rich daughters of the ton. They often eschewed her company due to her unknown history, leaving the girl alone with her books. Still, Olivia worked hard at her studies, earning a post in Sussex at the age of eighteen.

Then she meets her employer's handsome cousin and her life tumbles into chaos. It is not unheard of for a young woman to become a mistress to a rich young lord. But when one mixes in wives, past lovers and best friends, Olivia discovers that she knows nothing about life outside her books.

How can they have 13year old kids if they met 12 years back?

I'm looking forward to this, it's such an interesting premise. No one ever writes from the viewpoint of a  woman who decides to become a mistress.
