Set in late 18th-century England, Mistress of My Fate is the first book in a trilogy about Henrietta Lightfoot, a young woman who was abandoned as a baby and raised alongside her noble cousins. Trouble arises when Lord Allenham, engaged to marry Henrietta's cousin Catherine, falls in love with Henrietta instead. After Catherine unexpectedly dies, Henrietta flees London for Lord Allenham's country estate. When Allenham mysteriously disappears, Henrietta follows her lover back to London, where she is forced to make her living the only way she knows how. An imaginative and colorful debut.
