Book Review: Mistress of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle

I read this book back when it first came out and I remember thinking it was just okay. I don't know if it's the rewrites or time passing but I enjoyed it much better this time. The plot is a little unrealistic but it's a fun Regency romp.
Maybelle is the granddaughter of a famed courtesan and has never quite adjusting to romance, love, or men. Edmund is a Duke, very serious with no time for women. It's love(or lust) at first sight when they meet at a ball. I liked that Maybelle is the aggressor. It's up to her to change Edmund at first but once he gets the bit between his teeth he's off to the races (or rather Maybelle's bed).
While I haven't read all the books in the School of Gallantry series, I have read a few and this book reminded me to go back and find the others. I received this book as an ARC from Netgalley for an honest review.
