Quickie Review: The Mistress' House by Leigh Michaels

Synopsis (Goodreads):
First in a smart, sexy, Regency romance series intertwining three love stories from an awardwinning, bestselling author.

A rakish Earl buys a love nest and winds up falling madly in love with and marrying the lady he installs there. Because of its proximity to the Earl, and his rakish reputation, the next two ladies who move into the house after that can't avoid a scandal, but each one is on her way to true love...
My Thoughts: I solid, not terribly involved historical romance that takes three novellas and ties them together with a house an Earl plans to use as a place to stash his mistresses.  Of course, the Earl falls in love with the first woman he entices there and the happy couple end up letting their friends use the house.  Those friends fall in love.  And their friends fall in love.  And so on and so on.

The fact that we're dealing with three interconnected novellas means that each of the stories moves very quickly.  Characterization is a little on the light side but I blame that on the length of story each of the three couples were given.  In all honesty it doesn't take away from the overall story as long as you're okay with people who meet and fall in love at the drop of a hat.

Cute, sweet, and a little naughty, this book isn't groundbreaking but it's a fun diversion.
