Perfect fiction for fans of BBC TV's hit series BRIDGERTON and HARLOTS 'A remarkable picture of a fascinating age' Daily Express 'A full-blooded historical' Independent _____________________ My tale is not for the faint of heart. Born illegitimate in eighteenth-century England, the scandalous Henrietta Lightfoot gives us her version of the truth about her criminal life in this delicious coming-of-age. Fleeing her childhood home for the big city, Henrietta is now swimming in the London underworld of rakes, rogues, sharks, pimps and courtesans - she quickly sees that true liberty is a man's privilege. What must Henrietta do to survive in a world designed for men? Gripping, twisty, shocking, MISTRESS OF MY FATE illuminates the dark lives of the women written out by the masters of eighteenth-century literature.
