Description

Dear Lady Truelove, I am a girl of noble family, but I am painfully shy, especially in my encounters with those of the opposite sex . . . For Clara Deverill, standing in for the real Lady Truelove means dispensing advice on problems she herself has never managed to overcome. ThereA??s nothing for it but to retreat to a tearoom and hope inspiration strikes between scones. It doesnA??tA??until Clara overhears a rake waxing eloquent on the art of A??honorableA? jilting. The cad may look like an Adonis, but heA??s about to find himself on the wrong side of Lady Truelove. Rex Galbraith is an heir with no plans to produce a spare. He flirts with the minimum number of eligible young ladies to humor his matchmaking aunt, but Clara is the first to ever catch his roving eye. When he realizes that ClaraA??as Lady TrueloveA??has used his advice as newspaper fodder, heA??s infuriated. But when heA??s forced into a secret alliance with her, he realizes heA??s got a much bigger problemA??because Clara is upending everything Rex thought he knew about womenA??and about himself. . . .

Professional reviews

"Justine Eyre's stellar narration brings freshness to the familiar story of a wallflower and a rogue. Shy Clara, who is temporarily running her family's newspaper while her siblings are otherwise occupied, overhears an infamous rake advising a friend on how to dodge a marriage-minded woman. Incensed, she prints the conversation in the paper's advice column as a cautionary tale. When Rex recognizes the words as his own, he furiously seeks out the publisher--and sparks fly. There aren't any big surprises in the story, though Eyre's light touch in delivering pathos without melodrama and superb comedic timing, keeps the story from feeling stale. This fun romance is part of a series but can easily be enjoyed as a stand-alone. L.C.L. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
