Your hero is Derek Knightly, the love child of the Earl of Harrowby and an actress. This is the first thing I like about this book - it’s different. Derek is not a bored Earl but a bastard with something to prove. He eventually because a newspaper millionaire and that is where the heroine comes in.
Annabelle has loved Derek from afar for almost 3 years. She’s one of his advice column girls and he barely realizes she exists. Then one day she decides to ask her readers what she should do. That’s where the fun begins.
This was a fun read. Funny historical take on an advice column or, if it were today, a blog.
"With wonderfully drawn characters, intrigue, and tantalizing passion, Rodale is certain to delight readers and keep them waiting, with baited breath, for more.
