Let #1 New York Times
bestselling author Victoria Alexander sweep you away with her dazzling new romance, in which one otherwise proper lady discovers that passion is her legacy. . .
Widowed Julia, Lady Winterset, has inherited a book--a very shocking book--that every gentleman in London seems to want. For a charismatic businessman, it's a chance to build an empire. For a dashing novelist, it could guarantee fame. But to a proud, domineering earl, it means everything. . .
Harrison Landingham, Earl of Mountdale, can't let the obstinate Julia release the shameless memoir that could ruin his family's name. But the only way to stop her may be equally sordid--if far more pleasurable. For his rivals are intent on seducing the captivating woman to acquire the book. And Harrison isn't the sort to back away from a competition with the stakes this high. Now the winner will claim both the scandalous memoirs and the heart of their lovely owner. . .
"Warm, witty and wise." --Julia Quinn, New York Times bestselling author

Very entertaining read!

Sassy, sweet with a touch of whimsy. Good to the last page. Ms. Alexander is at the top of her game. A welcomed departure from what has become a standardization and, frankly, strangulation of creativity in the historical romance genre. Great characters - not to give anything away - but especially those unruly unconventional ones.
