An exhilarating, action-packed Regency 3 Sept. 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lord Alexander Sheffield attends a boring orgy hosted by Lord Dunster when he comes across a thief. Surprising himself and the felon, he helps her with her task. When he hears Dunster and others arriving, he kisses the lovely criminal helping her avoid prison time. The lady thief repays him by punching him, kicking his shin, and bruising his hip before she escapes into the night. However, he grabs a gold chain with a crest ring on it just before she flees. Reflecting on his defeat to the woman, Alex smiles while thinking how far he has tumbled since his days as "The Black Cat", Wellington's top Intel Officer.
Alex quickly learns the crest is that of Hadley of Waddington and his crime partner Lady Portia. At a dance he confronts her and offers his services. She is not sure whom to trust in her quest to find her papa who disappeared. Meanwhile, the government asks Alex to locate a key lost document that contains the "Riddle of Rasfistan" that could impact the war with Napoleon. Suddenly, Alex's plate is full with the government job, Portia's quest, and the love he has for her.
THE TIGER'S MISTRESS is an exhilarating, action-packed Regency romance starring two delightful lead protagonists, two "Shakespearean" siblings, and a host of other players adding depth to the tale. Though in many ways typical of the sub-genre with the macho retired espionage agent coming out of retirement for country and love, the mysteries of the puzzle of the riddle and her father as well as Portia living up to her namesake freshen up the tale.

A real pleasure to read 25 April 2005
By S. Reader - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Thoroughly likeable lead characters, two marvelous younger siblings, and a truly interesting mystery. Although there's a time or two that Alex is ovebearing in a seriously negative way, most of the time, he's just wonderful. And Portia is a heroine you can really cheer for. Their relationship is a pleasure to watch.

Davenport (Alex's friend) is great here, and the best thing about the next book, A Kiss of Spice. DO read this one first; it will make a difference in your enjoyment of book 2. However, The Tiger's Mistress is a much better book, in large part because I don't care much for The Lady in Red, who becomes the heroine in book 2, and can't really see her with Davenport. Even here, it's a big question mark.

DaRif's writing is sharp and her characterizations on the money. Witty and smart. The title is convoluted, but....Great book; 4.8 stars.

Not bad 28 Nov. 2009
By Kate - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is worth reading one time, but I didn't think it was as good as the other reviewers stated. Yes, there's action, romance, and a bit of mystery but I found it all a bit "meh." Keep in mind that the mystery isn't difficult to figure out. The heroine was a bit too stubborn and annoying. I also got tired of the italicized text that was used to state what the character really thought, usually some sarcastic phrase with the same swear words. You'll read about two characters for the next book in the series and while this book was good, I won't be purchasing the next one.
