Daniel Balfour, Earl of Ashford, is fearful that his undercover search for Jonathan Lawson, his missing childhood friend and heir to a dukedom, will be discovered and ruin the family if the scandal sheet The Hawk's Eye continues to chronicle his every move. Now his only hope is in diversion—so he makes an outrageous proposition to the paper's editor, the lovely, canny Eleanor Hawke. Eleanor accepts Daniel's offer to accompany him on his supposedly outrageous escapades (to get the true story, of course), and the die is cast.
VERDICT An arrogant but honorable rake falls for a smart, pragmatic commoner in a fun, sexy adventure that is the first in a compelling series about bold women writers succeeding "before their time." (The second installment in the series, Scandal Takes the Stage, is due in November.) Leigh, who also writes romance as Zoë Archer (Skies of Gold), lives in Central California.
