 At the Logical Men’s Society—an exclusive bachelor’s club—brandy flows like water, bawdy stories abound, and a gentleman tempted to marry is always persuaded to reconsider . . .
Brandon Balfour made the mistake of trusting his heart to the exquisite, strong-willed actress, Kate Addison, with whom he shared one intimate night before fate intervened. Now a decade later, Brandon is a leading member of the Logical Men’s Society—for no woman since Kate has managed to captivate him.
To Kate, the memory of that night still burns strongly, because it was followed by a stunning betrayal. A chance encounter may have brought Brandon back into her life, but that doesn’t mean Kate will ever forgive him. She’s vowed to make him pay—even as she realizes the promises of the young love they once shared are still etched upon her heart . . .
Loving her exiled him.
Trusting him ruined her.
And now, a clash of passions threatens everything each of them ever desired.

Please enjoy this excerpt from:
His Secret Mistress 

A Logical Man’s Guide to Dangerous Women Novel© 2020 Cathy Maxwell

Everyone was looking toward the entry-way, and Bran knew the prickling sensation at the back of his neck was a warning.
Slowly, he faced the door. There was Kate Addison . . . but not the Kate Bran had seen this morning. That Kate, in her modest day dress and properly styled hair, could have passed for a Lady of Quality.
This Kate was the conjuring of every erotic image men had for actresses.
Riotous curls framed her face and tumbled down past her shoulders as if she’d just risen from her bed. Her breasts mounded up and over her bodice. Well, Bran hoped there was a bodice.
She was bold. She was beautiful. And there wasn’t a man in the room that wasn’t having fantasies . . . the vicar included.

My Thoughts

His Secret Mistress is a very sweet second chance romance.  Both Brandon Balflour and Kate Addson have taken great measures to insulate themselves and their hearts from life and love.
Since the sudden sundering of their budding romance.  Some 15 years prior.
Brandon, by safely ensconcing himself within the institutionalized bachelorhood and men's only gatherings of the Logical Men's Society.
For her part...
Kate is an actress.  Bound and determined to get herself and her troope to the hallowed stages of London.  And reclaim the accolades that lies and deceit managed to rob her of so long ago.
Fate and a broken wagon have the two crossing paths.  With his ward, and the soon to be Duke of  Windorton, and his declaration of "undying love" acting is the catalyst that sets a most unexpected chain of events into motion. 

Watching the love-hate-love relationship develop between Brandon and Kate, however fun.  Seems too complex for the small town country seat of  Maidenshop.
Although the conflagration of meddlesome mothers and nosy, judgmental neighbors, and the like. Does make for interesting filler while Kate and Brandon work their way around to their "come to Jesus moment."

This is a beautifully written book otherwise.  Espousing the values of women's empowerment, recovery from toxic and abusive relationships, and reclaimed love. 
Because of this...
The last 25% of this book is its best part.
This is a very sweet start to what promises to be a great series.
