A Mistress, A Wife
by Arline Miller
“If he was involved in anything it had to be a masterpiece.”
I decided to read A Mistress, A Wife because author Arline Miller is one of the most joyful people I have met on Twitter. The cover of her book captivated me, too.
This is the story of a love triangle, but not a typical triangle at all. Rachelle is a young woman, a blend of sensuality and innocence, when she captivates Dave. Rachelle narrates much of the story. Dave is an older business man, successful, urbane, hard-charging, and handsome with a firm jaw. He is so entranced by Rachelle that he takes her for his own, Pygmalion-like. She becomes his willing creation.
“Whatever it is; I am here. What ever happened to you, I will remain.”
In the shadows of the story, is Dave’s wife, Vivian. Drink and despair have ruined Vivian and have literally made her a shadow. The author uses lyrical language and beautiful thoughts to describe the passions and struggles of the two women as they orbit Dave. Dave, Vivian, and Rachelle are all well-developed characters. The settings, from New York to a vacation island, are also described in detail. I was moved by the compassionate presentation of Rachelle’s sad past.
This is an engrossing romance. You will experience the characters’ joys, intimate delights, and their deepest pains. You will cry as the characters learn and grow. There are several plot twists, and the ending is satisfying and positive but nota typical happily ever after.
“Let us place only good memories in our treasure chest…”
This was a very insightful look into the lives of three people. At times it was hard to put down. Characters were believable as well as story lines . I will look forward to reading more books by this author.
This book is a great read, very hard to put down, and leaves you wanting more. We as humans know what is morally right and wrong, but not all situations in life are as they seem. In this book, love has no boundaries and speaks volumes! I highly recommend this book and will be looking for the next.
This book was wonderful, I read it in one day, couldn’t put it down. It was such a let down when it the book ended because I wanted more. One thing that impressed me was that a really good romance book can be written without profanity. I think I fell in love with Dave also.
This book totally captivated the interest of a reader with ADD. In order to do that the writer must move quickly with many surprises. The descriptive detail of characters, geographic area, compromising situations and emotions put me directly in the story as if I were there in person. I was so captivated I did not want to put it down, but my emotions were elevated to such a high level I had to take a break several times. The intimate areas were descriptive enough to understand the love, passion and emotions without being distasteful. There were many informative lessons throughout the book. Everyone has a story and to really know and understand someone completely you must be close enough they share their story. The writer shares that one can love in many ways and choices made can lead you into consuming circumstances or relationships you otherwise would have no part. This was a great book that deserves the highest rating. Ready for the next chapter.
My first thought before even reading a line, is that “A Mistress, A Wife” would be like most books which are about illicit affairs,rendezvous meetings, hurt & pain, erotica, etc! However, not that it is acceptable to be or to have a mistress, I do believe this book is tastefully written to the point of ‘can’t put it down, got to find out what happens next!!!’ The descriptive writing is very downto earth, much like my own Southern heritage! Not a historical romance although there is no specific date, one knows that it takes place during the past thirty or forty years! I also liked the fact that there is no profanity…unusual for some books today! I give it Five Stars!!! Now, can’t wait to read the next one!
This is an incredible story! It is a kaleidoscope of emotions, circumstances, and events which are intricately woven into the fabric of the story line. It is the kind of story that will touch each reader in a singular way; almost as if the reader is writing his or her ownstory based on the emotions prompted by the author. The characters, while being complex and enigmatic, are very real and believable because the author has endowed them with features and feelings that most readers can identify with on some level. This is one that you won’t put down once you start reading it.
I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this book. It had me on an emotional rollercoaster to the very last word. Just when you think things could not get any better or more exciting, IT DOES! So many twist and turns and in the end so very tender. I could not put it down once I started reading it. I was hooked from the first word. Just had to know how things ended. I was on the edge of my seat while reading. This is a must read. Pam P
I absolutely loved this book. So much of this book expresses the love and loneliness that goes along with a relationship with a married man. The story is written in such a true life way that it just sucks you in and you do not want to put the book down. I can hardly wait for the next book. I would highly recommend this book to women (young and old) to read.
I loved this book and rated it five stars as it captured my attention from the very first chapter and became a page turner! I would highly recommend this book to all women and adults! It made me laugh and made me cry…Thanks Arline for a great book and please write another one!!! BJB
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the author made every character so realistic that I felt like I knew them in person! It was so captivating from the first sentence to the last that I couldn’t put it down untill I finished it! I am waiting for the next one with baited breath!
Great book! A real page turner. I didn’t want to put it down. I felt like I really knew the characters. I was sad when I got to the end of the book as I wanted to continue reading to find out what was going to happen next. Can’t wait for the next book!!!
This captivating and exquisitely written novel is about how pleasure, awe and love blend into one in the sacred place of the heart, soul, and body. For me, the writer’s story line of the tabernacle of love of a man, a wife, a mistress which parallels the process between our Creator God’s love for His people, His desire to be in intimate relationship with them and his desire for them to experience boundless powerful love in and through their body and soul. Sexuality informing spirituality – spirituality informing sexuality.
Kathy Adams, who loved reading “A Mistress A Wife” took a picture of her with my book in Australia. I told her this was priceless for me as the author to realize my book had made it all of the way “Down Under”. Kathy is a lovely lady who loves to read and is waiting for the sequel, “Tell Me Lies, Love Me Still.” Thanks Kathy for packing my book, reading my book, enjoying my book and allowing me to know how much you liked it.

***************************************************************************** My first book launch/signing was held in my hometown of Douglas, GA at the Heritage Station Museum and we had a great turnout. Here are some of the photos from that special day.
Redbird Society/AKA Readbirds of Douglas GA invited me to be a guest of their Book Reading Group on September 24, 2015 where I was privileged to hear a great book of the month discussion by the group. It was so interesting to get inside readers’ minds. They allowed me to give them background on my love of writing and how A Mistress, A Wife was brought to life. My book will be their book of the month in a few months and I look forward to hearing this esteemed group discuss my first book. I look forward to meeting with them again in the near future.
