Once a Courtesan

by Liana LeFey 
Publication Date: March 27, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Select, Historical Romance



Constable Will Danbury has infiltrated a school to investigate an alleged crime. What he finds is a deeper, darker mystery—and a potent attraction to the alluring headmistress, Jacqueline Trouvère. But a constable can’t get romantically involved with a suspect; even one he thinks is innocent, without committing career suicide.
As headmistress of a school devoted to saving the innocent daughters of London’s soiled doves, Jacqueline’s life is complicated. Will tempts her in ways she never thought to experience, but she believes no respectable gentleman could love a former courtesan.
Despite their best efforts to fight it, a romance blossoms. When danger jeopardizes the school, however, his deceptions and her omissions come to light, threatening to destroy their love. They must look beyond the past to save both their future together and the lives of those they’ve sworn to protect.



Jacqueline Trouvere is the headmistress of a girls school.  All of her girls are orphans or abandoned and they have all come from a world that no little girl should know exists.  She is determined to help these children recover and make better lives for themselves.  
William Woodson is a police officer who is working undercover to find a murderer and someone who is trafficking children for sex. The job as a teacher for the school is his assignment.  
This is a very emotional historical romance and deals with an upsetting topic.  Nearly all our characters are physically and mentally scared,  but that has only made them stronger.  When the danger starts they find out just how necessary that is.  
This is part of a series but easily read as a stand alone.  A very enjoyable and thought provoking story.  I loved it.
