From the bestselling author of Agatha Raisin, M.C. Beaton, a sumptuous Regency Romance
By day she champions women's rights but by night she plots romance!
No young lady can be more devoted to the teachings of the infamous blue stocking Mrs Waverley than Felicity, her adopted author. Yet Felicity leads a secret life: that of an author of a scandalous new novel - the tale of a lady "rake" and her passionate exploits.
Yet there is one titled gentleman who is intrigued with this mysterious, headstrong young woman who is taking Society by storm -- and Felicity soon learns that real life is infinitely more interesting than fiction!
