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

*Starred Review* For Lady Julia Winterset, the choice was simple: publish and be damned. After her husband’s death leaves her in restricted financial circumstances, Julia has no choice but to profit from the one thing of value she has left, her great-grandmother Lady Hermione Middlebury’s scandalous memoirs. Once Harrison Landingham, Earl of Mountdale, hears from his sister-in-law Veronica that her friend Julia is in negotiations with a London publisher over the manuscript, which includes several spicy references to Harrison’s father, he is equally determined that Julia will not drag his family’s good name through the mud. When Harrison’s initial attempt to coerce Julia into selling the manuscript fails, he vows to take a different tack and charm her into surrendering it. With a delectably dry sense of humor that rivals Oscar Wilde at his best (and a delicious dash of the paranormal in the form of the ghostly Lady Hermione), Alexander fashions the perfect romance, featuring two splendidly matched protagonists engaged in an exceptionally entertaining literary and romantic battle of wits. --John Charles
