A Mistress For Penndrake, by Tammy L.Bailey. Historical Romance Release. ARC review & $25 G.C.Giveaway.

The Marquess of Wesley is out for blood. For a year, Lord Wesley has tried to undo the devastation his father left to Penndrake, their ancestral home, only to discover the man gambled it away right before his death. Now Wesley is being blackmailed by the new owner into marrying a woman he’s never met in order to get it back. But his intentions are less than honorable…

At one and twenty, Miss Kate Holden intends to become a governess, having sworn off all men years ago. However, her plans are halted when she receives a daunting letter from her cousin about a Lord Wesley. Ignorant of the name, and the devilish marquess that wears it all too well, she nearly ends up compromised. Refusing to fall prey to Wesley’s skillful seduction, Kate decides to turn things around on the rake. But the high-stakes game between them soon leads to her losing the last thing she expected…her heart.


Miss Kate Holden is trying to train herself to be a governess.  She is a gently bred woman who's family is struggling financially. She is staying with her cousins and helping them through the season.  Her father is trying to persuade her to marry his apprentice,  who she dislikes immensely.  When our heroine gets a letter from a cousin warning her away from a man she has never heard of things get confusing.  
Marquess of Wesley,  Earl of Chelmsford has spent the year since his father's death trying to put the estate back together , only to find it had been gambled away.  The man who won it is trying to blackmail him into marriage,  but he has his own way to get it back.  
Our hero tries his best to stick with his plan, but problems with all the females he is surrounded by will make sure that's not possible.  
This is a very romantic and amusing story,  with great characters.  Our innocent and soft hearted heroine is in way over her head with this determined hero.  
I loved it.

Tammy began writing when the shows and movies she watched didn't end the way she wanted them to end. Whether it's historical or contemporary, for her, there must always be a happy ending. When she's not writing, she's spending time with her husband and two boys near Cleveland, Ohio. Without their sacrifice and understanding, she believes she would have never been able to pursue her passion for writing or her accomplishment of becoming a published author.
